Three things sum up Valentine Marsden at this moment: she’s got a sweet tooth so deep she opened her own bakery; she hates the holiday that is her namesake; and she just might be charged with murder tomorrow morning when she strangles the contractor next door banging on the walls during the busiest week of the year. Valentine finds herself bumping into the completely sexy and totally cocky stranger more and more often. So often she’s beginning to think he’s a working man with a serious sweet tooth...
Ford Knox has spent almost twenty years secluding himself from the public, retreating to his mountain cabin after work everyday without a second thought for complicated things like women and relationships. But when the syrupy sweet and dangerously curvy bakery owner next door seems to fall right into his lap this Valentine's Day, he winds up drunk on her and desperate for more. Knox is a real man with a wicked appetite, and Valentine is the only thing he can see.
Warning: Sweet Valentine is cocky, blue-collar alpha goodness with a dash of sweet candy hearts, lush chocolate-dipped strawberries, and sawdust-scented first kisses. Grab a chocolate martini because Knox and Valentine are about to melt your insides!
I received an advanced copy of this book with the promise of an honest review.
Valentine's bakery is her life. When Knox starts working next door and his coworkers mention how hot she is, he stops in and and is instantly smitten. Valentine is a bit wary at first, but it doesn't take long before Knox wins her over. Their relationship moves at lightning speed, but everything about it feels right for the both of them.
Oh my god. I absolutely adored this book. The synopsis and "warning" pretty much say everything you need to know. There a bit of an age difference between the main characters and I was worried at first, but there was just the right amount of heat between them to make it super sweet and not at all creepy. This short read is exactly what you will need to get you in the Valentine's Day mood.
For a safe, off-the-charts HOT, and always HEA story that doesn't take a lifetime to read, get lost in an Aria Cole book!
