Okay .... did you know that JR Ward had a contemporary-romance pseudonym???? Obviously because you're here. But yikes this made by week!

This book starts off with Frankie, the main character, as her pipes burst and her ceiling caves in on her in a rush of water. She runs a bed and breakfast out of her family's ancestral home White Caps. Problem is, White Caps is going under and close to bankruptcy and disrepair. An unhealthy combination.

When the cook quits unexpectedly -- and Frankie burns the chicken to crisps -- she's near panic-mode about what to do with her hoity-toity guests who expect a high-end meal.

Thank god a man limps through the door asking to use a phone--who also happens to be an amazing chef looking for a summer job. And, he's cute!

The premise of the book is adorable, and the writing was fantastic. But the main character, Frankie, seemed like she was all hard edges and not much else. There weren't a lot of moments of romantic moments between them. It seemed that as soon as they accepted their feelings for each other ... the book ended.
