Overall this was sweet and I really enjoy this author's books. A few parts I had to skim because otherwise I was rolling my eyes, the food fight scene (seriously? during business? come on!) and the part with her ex- that was most definitely eye-rollingly OTT.
After a nasty divorce, I’m determined to save myself for the perfect man.
Unfortunately, none of the men I’ve met can measure up to my ideal.
But when I hire a carpenter to do some work in my bakery, I start to see things differently.
Reece Murphy is a blue-collar working man—not at all what I thought I wanted.
He’s strong and sexy with a big beard and even bigger muscles.
Can I look past his rough exterior and see the good man beneath before it’s too late?
As a carpenter, it’s my job to build things.
The only thing I’ve given up on building is a relationship with a woman.
That’s why my work is where I put my heart.
When I’m contracted by a local baker, it seems simple enough.
But Cleo Boulanger is anything but simple.
She’s curvy, classy, and makes me want to taste her croissants.
Before the job is done, I’m determined to have my cake and eat it, too.

I absolutely love Reece he is now my new hot book boyfriend. Sorry Cleo you snooze you lose . Nice fast paced story.
Loved Cleo and Reece's story. Both willing to take a change with putting themselves out there and finding exactly what they needed.
An opposites attract romance both sweet and steamy. The food fight made me smile.
