She’s a small town caterer, he’s a big city chef, but they don’t need a kitchen to make things sizzle...
Erin McDonald likes her simple life in her small town: no drama, no fuss, no uncertainty...until Jesse Hackett breezes back into town. Erin never quite got over how he left for the bright lights of the big city, and took her heart with him.
Jesse never regretted his decision to leave small town life behind and chase his big city dreams, but he’s always regretted leaving Erin behind. No woman has ever compared, and once he convinces Erin to let him touch her again, he’s never going to let her go.
Sparks fly and fires are rekindled, but the basic divide still remains: what really matters in life — location or love? (thanks to GoodReads.com for the summary)
My thoughts -
This story was ok. I liked it, I liked the characters and I liked the setting. Jesse and Erin had great chemistry and I thought their history together made their new relationship so much more intense than that of a "I love you at 1st/2nd sight" kind of romance. The way Jesse's family feels about Erin is special and amazing and vice versa.
I liked this a lot until Erin totally gave in and did what her man wanted. Jesse didn't compromise with her at all. I mean, his family was still in the small town - didn't he think about that when he was trying to have Erin follow him? That's really my only issue with the story - women's lib and all I guess.
This was short, fast paced, easy to read and chocked full of some hot, steamy lovin'. Great job Ms Summers:)
