With a live-life-to-the-fullest attitude, Vlad helps Meredith with her computer problem and tries to break her out of her work-comes-first rigid nature. They have a blast together until orders at her dessert company start consuming her time. Will Vlad rescue her again, or leave her stranded on Valentine’s Day?
A really fun, relatable story.
I really enjoyed the slower pace of romance between Vlad and Meredith. While the chemistry and attraction is instant, neither jump straight into the hot stuff. That slow, gradual progression was wonderful to read and made the end-point all the more sweet to my mind. While sex between Vlad and Meredith was alluded to, nothing was shown in detail. There were some lovely kisses and plenty of chemistry, but the bedroom door remained firmly closed. Readers who enjoy a sweeter style of romance should find this quite appealing, but there was still enough chemistry to my mind that the story shouldn’t be overlooked by readers who enjoy a bit more spice in their books.
There were plenty of interesting secondary characters that I felt really supported the story and made it interesting. My only small disappointment was that the conflict felt a little put-on. In most respects Meredith came across as a sensible, level-headed woman. Yet when she got all twisted up over a really big order it felt a little like she lost some of that intelligence. I can totally understand getting caught up in something so important, and obsessing over it, but it felt a little out of character – almost as if the author had blown it slightly out of proportion to instigate the argument between Vlad and Meredith. The argument had a good purpose, and was well-written, but the basis for it seemed a bit strange to me. I even ended up back-tracking and rereading much of the lead-up to be sure I hadn’t missed something, and this really drew me out of the story.
That said, overall I really did enjoy reading about Meredith’s computer woes, her difficulty in juggling her various clients and starting up her new business. The characters were interesting and fun and I found this to be a sweet, mostly happy story that made it a quick, good read.

Vlad is immediately drawn to the beautiful Meredith and sets out to get to know her with weekly dates. When a very comical hack effects both Meredith’s website and business, it’s Vlad to the rescue again.
However, where would a romance be without a glitch of the human kind? When it seems as if she’s not going to be able to handle a serious business commitment, they butt heads on the way she’s handling the situation, leading Meredith to think Vlad doesn’t support her drive and determination.
Darcy Lundeen does a great job showing just how heroic our everyday man can be as Vlad not only uncovers her hacker but also solves her business setback.
Note: I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Vlad just wants Meredith to be happy. If that requires lightening up a little, he can’t see the problem. It’s certainly no reason to cause a quarrel and break them up just when they’ve found each other. Now she thinks he doesn’t take her problems seriously. Can he pull off an emergency rescue and be her hero after all?
This is a lovely story and a perfect Valentine’s read.
I received an ARC of this title in return for an honest review.
I have to say right off the bat, though, that I didn't like any of the character names. Meredith (Merry) Crismis? Vlad Wiznitski? The pair initially bond over their unusual names, but the author didn't take it any further, which was a missed opportunity.
I enjoyed the storyline of the baker and her computer geek, with the bonus of a little computer hacking foul play and that nearly unattainable "big account" to get the bakery into the black. This tale made me laugh in all the right places and cringe along with Merry and Vlad at their missteps, but in the end delivered a satisfying resolution and happily ever after. (If only the names had been different!)
