This story is a contemporary romance with angst, flawed characters, a little bit of the enemies to lovers theme, a little danger, and a lot of sexual activity. It is an engaging story that moves at a fast pace, but one with an excessive amount of sexual activities which defy credibility. On the plus side, the author did a good job creating sensuality within her story. Additionally, she did take the time to develop credible back stories for her characters, which enabled credibility for most of her story, with the exception of the over-the-top sexual activity.
The stunning Bronte Ludlow lacks confidence due to a disastrous prior relationship that had almost ended with her being married. Now she and her friend, Rosie, have a wedding cake business which they operate out of Bronte’s home at the Ludlow Dower House, which she owns. Bronte is at odds with her brother who has, with the help of partnership with his friend, the attractive Nico Ferranti, restored the main house which he and Nico run as a luxurious hotel. Bronte hasn’t physically met Nico yet, but has been, via phone, curtly refusing his requests to purchase the Dower House. Nico wants the Dower House, and Nico always gets what he wants. Bronte resents the changes to her old family home and wants the security of remaining in her beloved Dower House and continuing to operate the now successful Sweet Sensation.
There are a few content mistakes such as when Bronte "...gave as good as she got..." when purposefully staring at Nico and moments later is mortified that she realized that she is staring at him, which makes no sense. Much later in the story, while she is at a café in Rome, she orders a hot chocolate with marshmallows, a baguette, wine, and water. It is noted that the water and wine had arrived, but then she took a sip of the hot chocolate, which had not yet arrived. There were a few minor errors such as a sentence with an extra article in it.
Overall, the book was well written. The character development was quite sufficient for this light type of romance, as was the mostly-clever repartee during social interactions of several of the characters. For this type of book, aside from the excessive sexual activity, both the story and the author’s execution of it rate 4 stars.
Bronte literally HATES the ground that Nico walks on and she hadn't even met him yet. But she has encountered some of his ideas that she is vehemently against. It has to do with how it impacts her family heritage. It doesn't help that her brother Alexander praises him to the sky; which doesn't help anything at all. It's just one more thing that they are arguing about. They used to be so close, although they love each other they also can't seem to agree about anything. Bronte now lives and has her business in The Dower House. The house has been part of her family's holdings for years and she's keeping it that way. But Nico wants to buy it too and even if he is a business partner with her brother, she's not having it.
I have to say that the first chapter starts out dramatically and so does the first meeting between Nico and Bronte.
Be warned though, when sex begins to happen there is going to be quite a bit of it.
One thing that I thought was underdeveloped was that when some people came out of Nico's past, there were some questions that were left unanswered.
There is a eventual H.E.A. and no cliffhangers though, so that was good.
I would like to see what happens with Rosie though, does she have her own story? And is it possible that it's with Alexander? Now that could be interesting. Oh wait, I just went and checked. It's there on Amazon already in Book 3 called, "Run Rosie Run."

One word on one line. At first I didn't notice it but gradually I got really fed up with it and at that point decided I wasn't going to read any more. Shame because I would have liked to know what happens between Nico and Bronte although this being a romance, its fairly self-evident I suppose.
