"An author to watch out for." --RT Book Reviews

Some people follow the rules. . . 

A professor of forensic anthropology, James Donovan is the reasonable sibling among the passionate, impulsive Donovans. But there's nothing reasonable about his reaction to baker Gracie Roberts. She's all wild curls and mouth-watering curves, as deliciously tempting as the sugary treats she's famous for--and twice as irritating. But before long, James decides that getting a taste of her is one indulgence he can't pass up. . . 

Some people play to win. . .

Independent, smart, and sexy, Gracie's year-long dry spell has her itching for a man. Responsible, health-obsessed James? Not in a million years! She needs a guy who knows how to let loose! But when James sets out to show her just how satisfying a disciplined man can be when pleasure is at stake, she learns just how sweet--and spicy--he really is. 

Have James and Gracie found the recipe for love?

Laura's Review:

There's something just so great about sexy smart guys who need a few lessons in letting go. James Donovan was that perfect blend of nerdy and handsome, but still insecure enough to not be cocky about it. I fell for him immediately. Gracie might have been a little too wild and flirty for me to really like her from the start, but she was just what James needed and she grew on me, too. Their contrasting styles led to some great witty banter and major sparks in the bedroom, and had me reading straight for hours to see how they would end up working things out in the end.

I loved this story so much, I immediately read the other books in the series - which I also liked, this this one was my favorite. I can't wait to read more from Jennifer Dawson!

Jennifer Dawson grew up in the suburbs of Chicago and graduated from DePaul University with a degree in psychology. She met her husband at the public library while they were studying. To this day she still maintains she was NOT checking him out. Now, over twenty years later, they’re married and living in a suburb right outside of Chicago with two awesome kids and a crazy dog.

Despite going through a light FM, poem writing phase in high school, Jennifer never grew up wanting to be a writer (she had more practical aspirations of being an international super spy). Then one day, suffering from boredom and disgruntled with a book she’d been reading, she decided to put pen to paper. The rest, as they say, is history.

These days Jennifer can be found sitting behind her computer, writing her next novel, chasing after her kids, keeping an ever watchful eye on her ever growing to-do list, and NOT checking out her husband.
