It’s all fun and games until somebody falls in love…
Jase Dvornakov has always loved women, 80’s hair band music, and things that go boom. He used to disarm bombs in the Navy, but he’s back in Denver after a mission overseas went sideways and destroyed his future, including his marriage. Now he arranges flowers in his family’s floral business because flowers don’t explode.
Cookie-baker extraordinaire, Heather Reese, has had one too many rounds of heartache, so she’s sworn off men and prefers to spend her evenings binge-watching game shows. Plus her no-men rule gives her time to focus on her dream come true—Heather’s Cookie Co.—her very own bake shop with an underground following for naughty shaped treats. She refuses to be interested in the hot-shot florist across the street. He is trouble with a capital T. Sexy trouble, but still, a hook-up with Jase is a hard nope.
Desperate to avoid his family’s incessant matchmaking, a fake breakup with the beautiful Heather is just what the florist ordered. If his family believes Heather decimated his heart, they’ll leave him alone. Heather isn’t so keen on the idea, but Jase is determined to make it worth her while. When a pretend breakup becomes the real romance neither was expecting, together they’ll have to decide if it’s finally time to light the fuse on love…
This is my Christina Hovland and is the second book in the Mile High Matched Series – and honestly I am in two minds as to how to write this review.
It was the uniqueness of the characters in the blurb that had gravitated me towards the book – a war returned hero turned florist; and a baker – with misconstrued fake relationship between two people who are attracted to each other, but do not want to move beyond the flirtations they have with each other.
Jake and Heather’s relationship and interactions with each other was okay – not brilliant, not mind blowing but just acceptable – I did enjoy their interactions – I honestly couldn’t tell you – what I do know that overall, with the low level of angst with a sweet romance that were sprinkled with some hilarious banter; but most of all I adored Jake’s grandmother the best. She is snappy, grumpy but has a big heart – in fact, it was her that I kept looking forward to her throughout the book.
But it is the writing style of the author that had me enjoying the book; which means that I will definitely keep an eye out for this author in the future.
