Here comes trouble…

Etta Green kissed Everson, Texas, goodbye years ago. A big city chef, she intends to return only long enough to settle her beloved grandmother’s estate and then hightail it back to Chicago. But Grammy Hazel had other plans. In her will, she left Etta part-ownership of a B&B that’s about to go bankrupt before it even opens. And what’s worse–Etta’s partner is Donny Joe Ledbetter, a handsome devil with some serious bad boy charm. Growing up, Donny Joe didn’t give Etta a second glance. Now, she’s got his whole attention.

A far cry from the shy bookworm he once knew, sexy, spirited Etta Green is nothing but trouble. Yet Donny Joe decides to play nice. After all, the quicker they open the B&B, the faster this exasperating–and irresistible–woman will be on her way. Donny Joe has never been a one-woman kind of man. But one crazy little moment of unforgettable desire may change his mind–if he can convince Etta to stay for good…

Down home and fun!

I like a book that flows well and keeps me engaged. This book wins on both accounts. I totally got the hometown feel of the story and became emotionally invested very early on. I needed to know what happened next.

Etta is a great character. She’s a chef and back in her home town because of a not so fun clause. She’s been given a bed and breakfast. It’s not at all what she wants to have. Not at all. Why? Her partner is the one person she never expected to see again—the bad boy she lusted after. She’s confused and not happy, but it was good to see her change and grow through the book. I rooted for her.

Then there was Donny Joe. Talk about a yummy man. Okay, so he’s a bad boy. He’s also not exactly how I pictured him. He’s very three dimensionally written. I liked his struggles as well. Like her? Hate her? Let her into his life? Who knows? It makes for good reading. I felt like I was right there with them.

If you want a book that’s delightful, fun and full of romance, then this might be the book for you.
