Laurie Peterson assumes her impulsive one-night stand with sinfully sexy Sheriff Ethan Booker is the biggest surprise of the year…until her bakery burns down while she’s basking in the afterglow. It looks like her dreams are up in smoke, but then Ethan proposes a deal too tempting to resist.
Ethan has no intention of settling for a one-night stand with Laurie. Nor does he want anything to do with the women his wealthy family wants him to meet. Not when he’s waited ten years for his chance to make his move. His deal might have strings—and Laurie may not know the stakes—but nothing will stop this sexy cop from staking a real claim on her body and her heart.

Ethan, Ethan, Ethan. Strong, steady, hot, and rich. What more could you ask for? The first two made me love him, the latter two were icing on the cake. The way we’re introduced to him is fabulous, and then seeing him present day and his thoughts about Laurie were a great opening to the story. It had me rooting for him from the very start. A gentleman of the highest caliber, I loved him as the male lead.
I felt like the plot here was very contingent on the whole mother thing, and since I didn’t like that part of the story, I can’t say I loved the plot… BUT the characters more than made up for that and so I’m still giving this book 4 stars.
