Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
Julian “Quinn” Quinetro, a gruff, tough Miami SWAT officer, has been injured on the job, and all he’s looking for is a little peace and quiet to recover—difficult to achieve with his large Cuban family. An adventure in picking up his prescriptions puts him in the path of his geeky, brownie-baking neighbor, Spencer Morgan. Spencer sweeps into Quinn’s life like a tropical storm of sunshine and rainbows. Not surprisingly, it’s chaos at first sight. Quinn’s in need of a little tender loving care, and Spencer decides he’s just the man for the job. Their very different lives might clash, but they might also find some common ground—and maybe more.
Funny scenes, sweet moments and scorching times. You definitely can tell this is a Charlie Cochet story. This was a cute novella. I really liked the character development that we got for Spencer and Quinn. Spencer was adorable in his chef aprons and super hero clothing. I did see some similarities between him and another character of hers, so clearly that’s her comfort zone. Quinn was uber hot. I liked him a lot, I thought his beginning sexy was extremely sweet. I enjoyed seeing Quinn’s family rain down terror on him. I enjoy reading about families, and Quinn’s were no different. I think where Spencer lacked masculinity he made up for it in confidence.
I’d love to see this as a full length novel, or even a sequel where we catch up with more characters, especially Javier and Quinn’s cousin. What was that all about? LOL.
Cover Art by Anne Cain: I think the cover was nicely done. An good representation of Spencer. Definitely liked the chef’s apron aspect.
