Synopsis: Her sweetest mistake . . .
Cool as a Chicago winter, private events planner Cara DeLuca is a model of self-control . . . until she meets the one temptation she can’t resist: Shane Doyle. The sexy, Irish pastry chef is too hot, too sure, too young, and after a crazy night in Vegas-her new husband. While at first Cara wants nothing more than a way out of her sham marriage to Shane, she soon finds that beneath his farm boy demeanor lies a man who can match her drive, both in and out of the bedroom. How can the wrong guy feel so deliciously right?
. . . Tastes so, so good
Shane has carefully structured his career and life around one goal: connecting with the family that doesn’t know he exists. Marrying a woman with more issues than a magazine stand wasn’t part of the plan, but melting Cara’s icy exterior is so worth the detour. Now as the annulment date nears and long-buried secrets are revealed, Shane will have to fight for the one thing guaranteeing the perfect life he craves . . . the current Mrs. Shane Doyle.
Review: I enjoyed this second book so much more than I did the first one. Shane and Cara are much more realistic and they have great chemistry. I didn’t mind the clichéd drunken marriage in Vegas like I have in the past. I don’t want to give too much away, there is a lot that goes on with these two characters and many of it were things that I didn’t really see coming. This appears to be Kate Meader’s second novel and you can tell that her writing and story telling has improved greatly from the first book to the second one.
Recommendation: Borrow it
I received an ARC of this book on Netgalley. This in no way affected my review.
