Short, quick and hot but so full of plot and emotion that you’ll fall in love. This story is part of a series but doesn’t need to be read with it. It is great just as it is. Kyle is a police detective that will cross the line from professional to personal with the right person and Gisella is that person. His caring comes across and you just want to melt in his arms. Gisella is a strong woman who knows what she wants and how to go after it. Both characters are great and I really loved them. The story is terrific with a lot of interaction with other characters; friends, co-workers and family. This story is definitely a must read weather you’ve read any of the other books or not. It’s just a perfect romance.
Kyle was attracted to the bridesmaid he walked down the aisle at a friend’s wedding so when he gets a report of a home invasion at her house he finds it hard to stay professional. He knows he should have acted on his attraction before now but he’s going to make up for lost time immediately. Gisella may be injured but she’s not willing to go to the hospital. However, she doesn’t really want to be alone either. Can Kyle step up and stay but also keep his hands off Gisella?
A kiss by any other name would never taste as sweet as his.
When Gisella Sands isn’t busy creating magical wedding cakes, she shows the outside world the lighthearted, teasing manner that fools everyone, even her friends at Tulle and Tulips.
Once she’s home alone with her cats, the façade falls away. No one would guess that her tragic past is her only companion in the night. Or that this confectionary genius has never tasted the sweetness of a man’s kiss.
The less Kyle Riley talks, the more others fill the silence—a handy skill for a homicide detective, not so much for a social life. Dedicated to his job, he’s never been tempted to take more than one taste of any woman. Until he responds to a home invasion and finds Gisella, the bridesmaid he walked down the aisle at a friend’s wedding, bleeding on the floor.
In a heartbeat, all thoughts of keeping his professional distance disintegrate. But when the heat melts the walls guarding their secrets, their recipe for one perfect night could fall flat.
Warning: Contains a man who rarely strings more than fifteen syllables together, and a woman who can read him like a cookbook. When strong and silent meets sweet and bubbly, something’s bound to boil over.
