I can admit that I'm not usually one for sappy love stories. I've literally cringed while watching Nicholas Sparks movies. Oh, and I didn't cry at the end of Titanic. I know... Revoke my woman-card and nullify my ovaries. However...
This story was just fabulous!
There was the exact right amount of romance, humor, angst, mystery, and steam, to keep me glued to the digital pages. I read this thing in like four hours, total. Just awesome. Alright, onto my review.
Maggie hadn't planned on returning to Colorado, a place she had visited as a child. There were just too many wonderful, yet painful, memories of her summers spent with Colton. But when her grandmother passes away and leaves Maggie with the family's cupcake shop, Maggie packs up and moves to the mountain town to sell sweets. Yum.
Running a cupcake shop isn't easy, though. Sales are dropping, her distributor seems to be incompetent, and the mysterious stroke of bad luck that has hit her lately only further convinces her that someone could be out to destroy her business. Having a flirtatious cowboy with a dangerous smile around is a distraction that she doesn't need.
Colton has wondered, for years, why Maggie suddenly stopped visiting Colorado. And now that she's back in town, he wants to find out. But after saving Maggie from a near-death incident, he discovers that he might want more from her than an explanation, after all. When her life is suddenly in danger, Colt makes it his mission to save her, despite her stubborn refusal. And of course, this leads to sparks igniting of epic proportions.
I honestly have nothing to complain about. I loved everything about this book. The heroine was strong, yet fallible. The hero was dependable and kind but also assertive. The villain-ish characters were intriguing. The secondary characters were fantastic, too.
P.S. If we don't get a follow-up book with Lizzy and Dade's story, I just might lose my marbles! I am 100% on board with those two becoming a couple!
A sweet and spicy story of friends-to-lovers with a fun mystery on the side. Five delicious suns!

Maggie has moved back to Creek Town to run her late grandmother's cupcake business. She's having lots of problems with suppliers : but is it bad luck or sabotage?
Maggie followed Colton around everywhere when they were kids: they were best friends. She had a crush on him but one summer she came home to find him dating Natalie; her broken heart wouldn't allow her to make any further visits to her grandmother.
Years have past, but has her heart ever forgotten the guy she loved?
Colton misses his best friend and doesn't understand why she stopped visiting Creek Town. One things for sure, his best friend has turned into a beautiful sexy woman.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The playful banter between Maggie and Colton made me laugh. I liked Colton: his flirty behaviour always made me smile. I loved it when he called Maggie Magpie, I thought it was cute. Maggie was stubborn but I liked her feistiness and fighting spirit throughout. Both characters complemented each other nicely. I enjoyed the suspense/mystery aspect of the book; it made everything more exciting and intense. I would definitely recommend this book: it was funny, sweet yet sexy.
My biggest complaint is that I didn't really feel the chemistry or connection like I normally do with a friends to lovers story (my favorite kind). The reason I like this type of story so much is because you immediately get a sense of history, and how well the characters know the other's quirks, likes and dislikes. This makes the usually quick romance more believable, because you know they really know each other. It's the opposite of insta-love. Whether it was the absence of more backstory/flash backs to get a good sense of the bond they shared previously, or the time they spent apart from one another, that feeling of deep knowing was lacking for this reader.
I received an ARC of this book, from the publisher, via NetGallery, in exchange for a fair and honest review.
