Jake Wolfe has a dark past and a criminal record. At the age of 27, he thinks it might be time to put all that behind him and make a fresh start. But when a strawberry-blond chef who looks like an angel serves him a slice of her warm apple pie, he notices an unmistakable bruise around her left eye and knows exactly what caused it. Can Jake handle this new obsession and control his lust long enough to save her without destroying her?

Sugar Malone spends every waking moment cooking, baking and working to make her new restaurant among the best in New York City. But when her mother’s fifth husband becomes abusive, she runs – literally – straight into the arms of the gorgeous dark-eyed stranger who could turn out to be either the devil or a saint. Is Jake Wolfe the dangerous convict she’s read about, or the white knight lover she never expected to find?

JAKE stars some of the same characters as the Billionaire series and Honey Girl but is a *safe*, sweet, super-sexy standalone. JAKE contains insta-lust, insta-love, an HEA and lots of hot sex. No cliffhangers, love triangles or cheating.

Jake hasn’t always been a good guy. Demons from his past and a slew of bad decisions left him with scars and a criminal record. At the age of 27, he has been working hard to move on and leave all that behind.

description“I’m a lonely, good-for-nothing sinner who’s finally seen, God. I’m a love-struck deviant who’s finally found a purpose. I’m a hard-headed son of a bitch who finally understands what it means to have something to live for.”

Sugar Malone is working her tail off to make her restaurant SUGAR a success. She left Georgia and her Grandma behind in the hopes of one day being able to pay her back and fix up their family home. When her mother’s latest husband attacks her, it sends her running right into the arms of one smokin hot Jake Wolfe.

This book was SWEET Oh SO sweet. And that was A-OK with me. Sometimes I like a little (OK A LOT) of syrupy goodness in a book. To be honest, though, it probably would have got an extra .5 star had there been even a little angst. They pretty much meet and it was all SMOOTH SAILING from there. Like I said, though, I still enjoyed the heck out of it.

I found it to be well written. The plot flowed nicely and I never felt like skimming. The two main characters were likable. The sex scenes were hot. The stalking plotline was wrapped up a little too easily IMO, but again, that was just a minor issue. And we even get a nice little look into the future epilogue.

Overall, a solid 4 star read that gets two thumbs up from yours truly.
