Publisher's Summary

Avery Collins has just landed her dream job, pastry chef for the posh-Manhattan restaurant Clover. Her new boss, Trace Montgomery, even helped with securing her an affordable place to live: a beautifully restored carriage house owned by his friend Rafe McKenzie - a man who makes her catch her breath and stirs her imagination. Trouble is, he's involved with someone. His father is being released after 25 years in prison, and Avery is just his tenant. Exploring the attraction that sizzles whenever they're together would be the icing on the cake, but Avery knows all too well that you can't have everything. Of course, what's cake without icing?

Rafe McKenzie's world shattered at nine when his father Liam - the only parent he knew - was arrested and convicted for armed robbery. Growing up in the system, Rafe managed to survive his childhood, and now has a job he enjoys, a house he's restoring, and a tight circle of friends. He's even working on reconciling with his dad, both eager to put the past in the past. Happy for the income a tenant would bring, Rafe agrees to rent his carriage house to Clover's new pastry chef.

When Avery Collins pulls up his drive, she's not at all what he's expecting. Funny, sexy, and sweet as her desserts, it doesn't take long for things between them to heat up. Just when it seems as if they'll have their cake and eat it, too, the past comes back with deadly intent, leaving Rafe to figure out who's pulling the strings before his world shatters again

Due to strong language and sexual content, this audiobook is not intended for listeners under the age of 18.

Ms. LA Fiore is always a MUST READ!!

Every single book that Ms. LA Fiore is pure gold. I can’t even explain how her stories create a home in my heart and live there. I haven’t read/listened to the other books in this series and I know that I missed some things but I don’t feel as if I’m missing anything. Rafe McKenzie was so completely fascinating! I loved learning about him. But my favorite part was Avery and all the pastry chef fun that happens in this book! I love Ms. Fiore’s wit and humor!

Then, once you factor in the excellent narrators Tracy Marks and Aaron Shedlock, this audiobook is one that will be consumed super quickly! You won’t be able to stop yourself! Ms. Marks and Mr. Shedlock gave us a tasty treat with their lovely storytelling ways!

Beautifully decadent

I really enjoyed this book and read it start to finish. It was full of sweet and witty moments and I just loved Avery who was a goofball with a big heart and some of the things she got herself into really made me laugh out loud.

Nice Read...

This was a good love story. I enjoyed hearing my favorite narrators Aaron and Tracy which was the only reason I purchased this. It’s light, not too much sex but good enough!

loved rafes story

not as much punch in this story as the previous 2 but it works as rafe is the quieter of the 3.
So Averys character blends perfectly for rafe. a little bit of whodunnit makes it intriguing and a twist with family. great heartwarming story
