Synopsis: When Officer Rick Boyd answers a call about a peeping Tom, he doesn’t expect to find a gorgeous woman holding the binoculars. But Gina Silvano’s no peeping Tom, and she can catch her cupcake truck’s kinky vandals herself, thank you very much. No sexy cops required.
No matter how hot their stakeouts, by-the-book Officer Boyd can’t see a future with a dangerous, rule-breaking wild-child who despises the law. He’s never felt more alive, though, and expunging her from his heart might be impossible.
But loving each other might cost them more than they are able to give.
This is definitely another of those books where my recommendation is go read the novel instead of my review!
This is an engaging, laugh out loud romance featuring a handsome, rule following police officer and a rebellious, feisty, independent young lady who has little regard for the police. These two seem like total opposites and the attraction between them is instantaneous, unwanted and irresistible! Their first encounter is when an elderly lady calls the police to report that Gina is on the fire escape outside the lady’s home, trying to catch the people using Gina’s cupcake truck without her permission and Rick Boyd is one of the officers arriving to deal with the situation. This is the just the first of their encounters – and the start of a humorous, well written romance that I thoroughly enjoyed escaping into.
This is the second novel in the series and does include characters like Nat and Eric from the first book in the series, ‘Truly, Madly, Sweetly’ . As usual for this highly talented author, this story has extremely well developed characters, a plot full of twists and turns to keep you turning pages and, like the first in this series, totally lives up to its tagline in being ‘a sweet love story’! I particularly enjoy how the author brings her characters to life, revealing aspects of their childhood, their family and friends to help readers understand and empathise with them and their attitudes. This is a great read that I have no hesitation in highly recommending to anyone who enjoys escaping into a superbly crafted contemporary romance with comedic episodes interwoven throughout it!
Many thanks to the author, publishers and NetGalley for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

Synopsis: An inherited parking spot. That’s all it took to make Natalie Moran’s food truck dreams come true. But her dream space is attached to a bakery inherited by someone else—drop dead gorgeous Eric Schneider, a financial consultant who wouldn’t know a cupcake from a cannoli. And he wants to buy Nat out, no matter what she has to say about it.
Eric’s determined to build his own business, but he needs the super cute klutz with the cupcake truck to help. If Nat will teach him the basics of running a bakery, he’ll give her free kitchen time. Except…neither expects the heat burning between them or the possibility that their arrangement might become permanent.
When it all blows up, Nat is convinced his actions mean betrayal. It’s up to Eric to regain her trust and show her he’s a man who is truly, madly in love with her, before she disappears from his life forever.
Kira Archer resides in Pennsylvania with her husband, two kiddos, and far too many animals in the house. She tends to laugh at inappropriate moments, break all the rules she gives her kids (but only when they aren’t looking), and would rather be reading a book than doing almost anything else. She has odd, eclectic tastes in just about everything and often lets her imagination run away with her. She loves her romances a little playful, a lot sexy, and always with a happily ever after.
