I really enjoyed Jesse's story and who wouldn't love Zach? I love this series because the alpha male leads fall fast & hard and don't pussy foot around lying to themselves for months on end. Zach does make a big boo-boo but realizes it quickly with a little help from his friends. The mystery part is really quick in this one but it is a shorter length story. You may need a stash of sweets to eat while reading because they mention yummy pastries & desserts often.
There was a formatting issue where there was a space between the capital letter and the next letter of several sentences so for those that are annoyed by that - you have been warned. I did not find it as distracting as the numerous grammar errors and misused words that can be found in a lot of ebooks. Those really makes it hard for me to read as they pull me out of a story. This was more a minor annoyance.
The story is there, and it's really cute. My problem was that in keeping the length to that of a novella, the author created more plot than she could really go into. Trauma from her sister's kidnapping? Totally understandable. Danger from saboteurs at pastry school? Okay, he's a bodyguard, it could be interesting. Conflict with the hero? Expected in romance, certainly.
I think this could easily have been a 4* story, perhaps even 5*, if someone had suggested cutting the pastry school mystery out. Focus on the plot! If you want danger, hello, she's in NY - she could easily get mugged on the street. You didn't need to devote time that could have been spent fleshing out romance or conflict (again, resolved WAY too quickly) on something else that is also resolved way too quickly.
In summary, it was a cute read, but for the length of the story the author needed to involve drama or danger. Using both made both of them suffer.
Ms Ryan .. You have a wonderful talent but don't taint your characters with foul mouths. The first book is this set was great .. the only difference is that one had no profanity.
I would have given this one FIVE stars without the filthy language.
It is a good quick read, well written and I really liked the story line.
Jesse is suffering from the stress of her sister being kidnapped. Her brother-in-law calls Zach in to be her bodyguard and support while she is away at school. To bad Zach is already half in love with Jesse.
