THE BOYFRIEND BOOKMARK: ★★★★★

But Wade’s passion for life heats up when he’s hired to remodel a new storefront next to Big Sky Pie -and he falls for the red-hot, bad girl who’s setting up her catering shop there.

What that man clearly needs is something decadent—like her…
I LOVED this tasty treat of a book! It was simply delicious… oh and I am so making that pie at the end! Yum!

This book was just touching. I didn’t want to put it down when I started reading it. I love the colorful and playful banter between the characters. You can tell instantly there is serious chemistry between the two, even Wade’s daughter’s teacher notices… ahem… But it’s not just the banter between these two that draws me in. The setting is perfect, the food is comforting and it reminds me of coming home again.
This book is sweet, flirty, sex as all get out, and just plain romantic. You can’t help but fall in love with the characters, the town and the cat. This is a 5-star must read!
