Jilted bride? Check. Hangover? Check. Shotgun? Double check. Wayward groom’s half-brother Colt on her porch the next morning, hat in hand, concern in his sexy blue eyes, and apologies on his full kissable lips? Uh… Check?

That was six months ago. Now, with a job she loves, her heart mended and her pride put back together, the last thing Chrissie expects is that same half-brother standing behind her saying he’s got an answer for her. Problem is, she can’t seem to remember what she’d said on that long ago day that would warrant a visit from him.

Colt does, and as the CEO of a cookie company, it’s his job to pay attention to the details. “Maybe I should have married you instead.” She’d been right. He was the brother she should have married and all he has to do is convince her of it with a blend of persistence and seduction.

But their first kiss is hotter than the southern Georgia summer and catches him off guard. She’s primed and ready to burn up the sheets and he’s not inclined to say no. Will she believe that he won’t ever leave her? Maybe. If he brings her cookies…

The premise of this story drew me in, the idea of a jilted bride falling in love with her ex-fiance’s half-brother was such a new story line I had to read. Ms. Matthews didn’t disappoint, this is a fun, sexy lighthearted read. She made me believe in love at first sight and in fate.

Chrissie was raised to be a perfect Southern debutante, but she doesn’t really fit that mold. She likes guns, hunting, beer and living on her own. I think Colt catches her so off guard because he is a CEO so she expects a jet setter, but all he really wants is a down home country girl.

Their relationship moves quickly but somehow it works, I really felt the connection between the two of them. They burn up the sheets and spend a lot of time getting to know each other.

I recommend this book for the sweet treats, spunky heroine, and a man who knows his heart and goes for it. ​
