When ex-Marine Walker Buchanan stops to help Elissa Towers change a tire, he tells himself it’s just the neighborly thing to do. And when Elissa finds herself baking him a thank-you pie, she’s just returning the favor…right?
Both of them have sworn off dating—Elissa’s determined to protect her little girl, and that means ditching her taste for dangerous men…especially former Marines with dark secrets. Walker knows that he’s not cut out for hearth and home…his own crazy family made sure of that. But the sparks won’t stop flying between them.
Now the two are struggling to keep their relationship “just friends,” but with every kiss, their rules fly out the window…
I loved this book even more than the first book in the series. I was so glad that Walker’s book was the next in the series. This had more of the relationship progression that I like instead of the on again/off again that most romance books have. The relationship between Walker and Elissa slowly builds until the end. I will say that near the end I found myself with a little bit of tears in my eyes, and that was mainly because of what Elissa’s daughter Zoe says to Walker. It is such a sweet and tender scene in the book. Another great book by a talented author that never disappoints. I am so happy I found this authors books. The author knows how to capture your interest in the book and will keep you hanging on until the last chapter. This could easily be read as a stand alone book, but I do recommend reading the first book, Delicious, first so you can understand the other characters involved better.
Outstanding Book That Will Stay On My Bookshelf
I love that you are reviewing these! This one was actually my first Susan Mallery book. But it was actually an audio. I bought all in audio since I was serious commuter a couple of years ago. It was just easier. I have since gone back and bought the books, but I have to admit that this one was my fav. I loved Walker! Book #4, Tempting,comes in a close second or equal to this one. Dani rocks!!!
