Book Review
This trilogy was one that captured my interest from the beginning. I'm not the biggest fan of contemporary romance, but this author has the ability to pull the coldest heart in with humor,  engaging characters and spicey sex. The romantic formula this author employs works well for her. The stories move well and there is always an interesting twist to be found. My favorite story was the romance between Renee and Lorenzo. Of course that could be because, I love men who write and cook lol.
