My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Antoinette “Toni” Deluca as no interest in getting involved with another man, her last boyfriend seemed more intent on getting the property her bakery is on then her. Although he has not given up, Toni doesn’t want to feel that vulnerable again.
Emerson Pierce is needing a coffee and snack, when he happens upon a delightful bakery called Bliss. The stunning barista catches his eye immediately but he believes she is too young and probably would use him for his money like the other women in his life. When he shares this detail with Stone Ryder, his best friend, Stone is intrigued enough to help Emerson make a decision and seek her out again.
Emerson is hooked where Toni is concerned, now he has to figure a way to introduce her to Stone and hopefully find a partner they both can love. Toni is receptive but when all three confess to what they are hiding, it may destroy their new found relationship before it even has a chance.
I liked this one a lot, of course I am a sucker for books that showcase food. Toni is a fun character, she is tough and not willing to be put in a vulnerable position again. Emerson and Stone both have issues with trust where women are concerned, especially now that they have a women who is turning out to be a stalker, but they know that Toni is it for them now they just have to convince her.
