Sydni Cannes is devoted to her sister and dedicated to her work. She takes a rare evening off to enjoy herself, but instead lands in the local lockup. Her lawyer turns out to be the same man all the women at work would like to take home permanently. He gets her case dismissed, and starts a campaign to win her, but Sydni doesn't plan to give him the time of day. He's too young, too sexy and altogether too persistent.
Drew had Sydni lined up in his sights for ages. Bailing her out provides an opportunity to get close to her. Now he needs to convince her to not only ignore the fact that he's white, but that he's also younger than her. To complicate things further, someone is siphoning off company funds and setting them both up for a fall. Life would be wonderful if Drew can keep his job and convince Sydni he's worth taking a chance on.
Syndi's maturity made Caramel Kisses a refreshing read. She's fortyish and overly concerned with her age, as compared to Drew, who doesn't mind at all. Both characters are strong go-getters with a healthy dose of sexual tension zinging between them from their initial meeting. Sydni's history was more defined than Drew's; however, his personality and determination to win her outweighed any lack in that department. The mystery, along with the other characters involved, provided a good subplot to keep things interesting. Drew got to the bottom of the theft, while proving a strong partner and a good match for Sydni. If you like plots with a twist and steamy, explicit sex scenes, then you'll enjoy Caramel Kisses.
