Nicole wasn’t sure why she had gotten the nick name Baby Girl when she was not-by far-the youngest employee of The Down Home Calabash. Her much younger co-worker complained, gossiped or talked about how attractive their boss was. But Nicole didn’t have the luxury of a fantasy existence. She was on a mission to make money and to get her degree and her plans most definitely...more

This is my third book by this same author and I've yet to be disappointed, if there's a Team Pace, I'm on board. In this novella, Pace has written two well rounded characters in restaurant owner Marty and college student Nicole.

Working her way through college Nicole knows that her boss is an as*shole. He's been nothing but mean to her from the time that she's been working by his side at his restaurant, until one day when Nicole has a very bad accident and Marty steps up and becomes the man that...more

Woah, this was another nice quick read.

Don't be surprised that I'm so into the interracial romance lately, I found that it's really sweet when reading interracial couple fall for each other despite of their color of skin.

So, when Marty, the owner and the boss of restaurant that Nicole worked, being so mean and cold to everybody, Nicole didn't have any interest with this 40 yo white man. She admitted that Marty was hot, but personality is all for Nicole. Then when Nicole got hit-run by an SUV a...more

4.5 stars. This book was short and sweet. It also brought up topic of what damage relationships do happen with your life. Ms. Pace get's into the real story of the character that is based on what is going on with our society. Such as Physical abuse, sexual abuse, drug abuse, death. When you read her books it makes you wonder how some of our society can neglect and ignore what is around us. But it is true when they say when there is love and appreciation with work can battle any emotional and phy...more
I want mooooreeeeee!!! I tell you I was actually blushing and was a bit shy reading about Marty, his swagger and everything about him. Nicole is one lucky girl. Buy this book, keep it because you will read it again and again..i know i will. :-)

Wonderful romantic story I only wish it was longer. **Sigh**.....

The book begins with Nicole having an ordinary day at work with her mean boss Marty. But on the way home something happens to her, and Marty is the one who helps her. These two start to form a relationship, until both of their insecurities and past hurts get in the way. These two each have scars that they are trying to heal, but maybe they can have the help from each other.

This book was very interesting. I loved the plot, and I really enjoyed the charact...more

I thoroughly enjoyed PP "Beast" and while her writing style was clear in this book as well, the story was too short to be as well developed as "Beast". The hero-chef from hell, heroine-backline prep girl. Marty, the hero, is a tough, mean SOB that runs a tight kitchen. Nicole, the heroine, is a goal oriented poor, older employee. A horrible accident brings them together and it is cliche from that point on. They both have a past that they are trying to redeem themselves of. In the end, the story...more
Beautiful is one of the words that comes to mind when I think about this book. Sad times is what brought them together but they turned those sad times into some thing beautiful. Heartwarming but will also bring a tear to your eye when you hear about their backgrounds but they will be washed away when you read about they love and the live they have together.

Perfect love for Imperfect people.

It was a quick read but enjoyable nonetheless. Sweet and romantic.

Nicole and Marty were very suitable for each other. They were two rounded characters.

I liked Nicole's character. She's a strong, determined woman hardened by tragedies since childhood and longed to have someone who will love her.

Marty is tough as nail bit he has a soft and.big heart especially when it comes to Nicole. He was amazing.

I'm glad that they found.each other. It was really a beautiful s...more
Very nice read,I was glad Nicole was able to overcome her guilt as well as Marty,and found love for each other and create a family of their own as well as Nicole been able to complete he college degree

Ok, well this is the third book I have read by this author thus far. This was probably the weaker of the books that I have read but it was good all the same. This was a cute story over all that had some really heavy issues in places. The heavy did not take away from the story but rather added many layers to it. It was pretty hard to put down once I got started. You can finish the book within a few hours. I found myself missing the story once I had finished it and I look forward to other stories...more
My first Pepper Pace novel...wish I had a boss like this!
Really loved this book. Baby girl, as she has lovingly been nicknamed by her co workers, is a hard worker with a limited amount of friends and a boss she tries to steer clear of. She lives a simple, independent, quiet life until a horrible accident leaves her no choice but to accept a helping hand from someone unexpectant...and it changes her life forever. This was a true romance story. Anyone who has ever dreamed of being in love can only pray that they find someone who loves them with no strin...more
I really enjoyed this book it is a good fast read that you will truly enjoy. This book shows you that you never know someones pain, why they don't smile, why they are hard or mean. The characters learned that in this book and found their way to each other.
Not my fab P.P. novel, but still a good quick read for anyone looking for something short with brevity
Once I got past the sex and head trauma, I have to say that the book was cute. It made me smile.
3.5 stars. Could've been longer but good short story.
Not a bad read. Quick and entertaining
