Back Cover Blurb:

After her husband’s death two years ago, erotic romance author Liz Anderson moved home to small-town Angel Bay to heal her broken heart. So when her best friend fixes her up with a single father ten years her junior, she doesn’t expect much. But this hot young chef is igniting her long-dormant passion.

With a three-year-old daughter to raise and a restaurant to run, the last thing Luc Rossi’s life has room for is love. After his fiancée’s betrayal, he isn’t sure he believes in it anyway. His colleague’s matchmaking attempt is awkward at best, but what can he do except play the gentleman? Liz ends up being smart, charming, and sexy, and he can’t resist her.

An offer to teach her to cook leads to a steamy fling, but this gorgeous older woman makes Luc wonder if it’s time to open his heart again. Can he convince Liz that giving their relationship a chance beyond the bedroom wouldn’t be a betrayal of the past she holds dear?

My Review:

I had a lot of fun with this story. Stewart’s plot contains many events which are emotional and hard hitting, yet at the same time, she presents the entire tale in such a manner that you can laugh and have fun. I really enjoyed the way that Stewart introduces readers to this small town and its inhabitants. The focus remains on the main characters, but everything around them comes to life as well.

I enjoyed the simultaneous complexity and simplicity of the main characters in this novel. Stewart really lets you get to know them, while also portraying them as real, down to earth individuals. I enjoyed the fact that she developed the characters around them as well. The entire cast really gave me a feel for what’s going on without overshadowing our main couple.

All in all, this was a very enjoyable, endlessly romantic, quick read. It’s the perfect beach read, or a novel to curl up with in front of the fire on a cold winter’s night.
