Love Caters All

When hard-driving CEO Rick Nordan arrives in Lobster Cove under strict orders from the family doctor to take a break, he discovers the rental house comes with a family attached, including one sexy dynamo of a caterer. She's nothing like his ex-fiancée who wouldn't sign a pre-nup, but maybe that means she's the real deal and not a gold digger.

Maya Cruz wants life for her widowed mother to get easier by renting out her house during the summer. But teaching Mama business means explaining Rick isn't a "guest," he's a "customer." And the first thing Mama does is invite Rick to join their family activities.

Having Rick around wouldn't be so bad if Maya didn't find him so attractive. The last time she fell for a vacationing millionaire, she had her heart broken.

She swore off his type, and he's not looking, but this might be a recipe for love.

My Impressions
I loved the Cruz family. Such a beautiful tight nit clan that cares deeply for each other, but not afraid to speak their minds either. Rick Norton is introduced to the Cruz family, thanks to his doctor, who tells him he needs a break from the stress of his job and the city. The ever so delightful and helpful doctor even has the perfect cottage to melt his cares away that just so happens to be attached to the Cruz family.

The romance between Maya and Rick is sweet. They both  have a physical attraction to one another, both are entrepreneurs (even if they are on different playing fields),  but they also show vulnerability, make mistakes, and although it takes them a while and they have to overcome some obstacles, they find true love.

I adored how strong willed and spirited Maya is. She is devoted to the people she cares about and has the deep inner strength that shines through with kindness and consideration for others. Her weakness though, besides Rick, is she is also insecure about her talents as a chef and hinds behind life instead of conquering it.

This is a quick read, but a good one that is enjoyable from start to end and is easy to recommend.

Enjoy an Excerpt:

“I’m sorry,” he said.

Oh, so the way to get Rick to apologize was to let him win? Now there was an interesting twist. She stuck out her hand. “Truce?”

He nodded but didn’t let her hand go. Instead he pulled her close for a kiss. For a moment she drank in his scent, which was a subtle spice, like Earl Grey tea.

 “What did you do that for?”

 “I didn’t have any other defense.”

“A kiss is not a defensive move!”

“What about this?” His firm tug landed her against his chest.
