"An author to watch out for." --RT Book Reviews

Some people follow the rules. . . 

A professor of forensic anthropology, James Donovan is the reasonable sibling among the passionate, impulsive Donovans. But there's nothing reasonable about his reaction to baker Gracie Roberts. She's all wild curls and mouth-watering curves, as deliciously tempting as the sugary treats she's famous for--and twice as irritating. But before long, James decides that getting a taste of her is one indulgence he can't pass up. . . 

Some people play to win. . .

Independent, smart, and sexy, Gracie's year-long dry spell has her itching for a man. Responsible, health-obsessed James? Not in a million years! She needs a guy who knows how to let loose! But when James sets out to show her just how satisfying a disciplined man can be when pleasure is at stake, she learns just how sweet--and spicy--he really is. 

Have James and Gracie found the recipe for love?

Dawson writes another cute contemporary romance that will have you laughing and will keep you coming back for more.

Even though this is a third book in a spectacular series by Dawson you don't need to read the first two books to enjoy James and Gracie.

From the beginning of the book James and Gracie have this hate/love relationship. They are constantly arguing over the littlest things. Because they have such a close group of friends and Gracie's best friend happens to be James's sister they can't avoid one another which makes the bickering more fun and entertaining.

Gracie is a self taught baker and lives by her own rules. She is a blond bombshell and described basically like a Monroe lookalike. James on the other hand is a serious professor who loves eating healthy and working out.

I didn't read the second book but I did read the first one in the series and I loved it. I was happy to reconnect with the characters. Dawson has a way of writing fantastic characters that complement each other. Gracie and James might be different as day and night but one thing they have in common is outrageous sexual chemistry.

This story contains role playing which I was actually surprised. I loved the funny banter, the professors dirty talk and the happily ever after these two embarked on.

It really was a fun flirty read that I loved! Even when these two were "playing nice" and not bickering at one another the story never became dull or boring.

This book was a game changer and I can't wait for more! I highly recommend this book if you like an alpha professor and a curvy woman who speaks her mind. Hopefully there will be more books in this series!

Jennifer Dawson grew up in the suburbs of Chicago and graduated from DePaul University with a degree in psychology. She met her husband at the public library while they were studying. To this day she still maintains she was NOT checking him out. Now, over twenty years later, they’re married and living in a suburb right outside of Chicago with two awesome kids and a crazy dog.

Despite going through a light FM, poem writing phase in high school, Jennifer never grew up wanting to be a writer (she had more practical aspirations of being an international super spy). Then one day, suffering from boredom and disgruntled with a book she’d been reading, she decided to put pen to paper. The rest, as they say, is history.

These days Jennifer can be found sitting behind her computer, writing her next novel, chasing after her kids, keeping an ever watchful eye on her ever growing to-do list, and NOT checking out her husband.
