Mini review for this sweet read
I would say that this story is perfect if you need some comfort read after a book hangover.
It’s sweet and funny with a side of spicy.
Griffin and Audrey made perfect sense together and were just plain adorable.
The plot is quite simple:
Audrey has failed whole her life at impressing her hard businesswoman of a mom. She failed at college, loved to party etc until she joined a culinary school and found her calling.
She dreams of having her own restaurant and she is determined to win a competition organized by a restaurant corporation that is emplying her.
Only…she really has pesky jobs there and her last one is kind of her last chance: she has to tour Vermont and convince organical farmers and local producers to sell her their amazing products for a ridicule price.
On her expedition, she’ll get stranded in a ditch with a flat tire on the property of big, bearded and grouchy Griffin, former football star at college and one night stand.
Griffin has always secretly pinned for Audrey but since his father died , he has the weight of the world on his shoulder and is intent on sending his siblings to university, caring for his mom and taking care of the family orchard and farm.
When he’ll learn the price Audrey’s boss is asking for his cider, it will be a “hell no!”.
As Audrey is coming back a few times to talk with farmers, their undeniable chemistry will sizzle and they’ll soon have very hot sex!
I loved these two together. They balanced each other with Audrey mollifying Griffin, making him lighter, having some fun and not always work and Griffin admiring Audrey so much he gave her the confidence and appreciation she so needed.
It also didn’t hurt that Griffin has a great family that welcomed warmly Audrey in their fold.
It was truly heartwarming to see Audrey being showered with love and appreciation as her own mom had been so cold and unyielding all her life.
Add to this of course some villain as in Audrey’s bosses and you’ll have a sweet second chance romance with just a little angst and devious plot to keep it interesting.
Have you read that book?
Thanks for reading!
