"Fine. We'll go to dinner Saturday."
Summer paused at the door, turned and shook her head. "No."

It was rare that anyone ignored a statement she'd made. Rather than temper, Summer tried the patient tone she rem

This book is so vague that even the generalities are hidden. The plot is absolutely translucent. I kept thinking that something would happen to save this book, but it continued to the end to be a pre teen level book with no plot, using adjectives and adverbs to fill up the page. This book is a total waste of time to read. Pick up another book to read because this book does not have one saving grace.
Blake was a bit boring, really. He and Summer were interesting, and he certainly new how to handle her but thought he was kind of stodgy on his own. Which is was supposed to be, but still.
Good standard NR fare.

What a lovely story about Summer and Blake. She is the ultimate pastry chef and he is the very successful businessman. They are both strong willed and sure of their motives and the direction they see their lives going. That is until life throws them a curve ball called Love. A fun and delightful story to be enjoyed as Nora Roberts once again shows her mastery of story telling.
Occasionally, I just need a good “beach read”. A fairly predictable love story that doesn’t require too much brain power to read and enjoy - this book fit the bill.
A world famous dessert chef is hired by a rich (of course) hotel chain owner to update the menu and kitchen in one of his hotels. Sparks fly, feelings get involved and the perfect romance is formed.
I can always count on Nora Roberts to help me “escape”!
This story is another Nora Roberts success! I love the way she can write a marvelously romantic love scene without any of the tawdry graphic details getting in the way. What she writes is pure romance, which is what we want to read when we pick up her books, not the disgustingly explicit sex scenes that some authors think is "romantic." Thank you, Ms. Roberts, for the lovely romance!
