Book Summary from Goodreads
Too tempting to resist
Luscious, tantalizing, delectable…and that's just Tiffani Chase-Lake's cupcakes. The moment Broderick Hollingsworth sets eyes on the sexy baker herself, he's truly intrigued. For the first time, the wary real estate developer is ready to open up to someone. Then he realizes that his next business deal is going to leave Tiffani and her cozy bakery high and dry…
Just as hardworking single mom Tiffani is falling for Broderick's easy charm, she learns about the property deal that will destroy her business. Even her most decadent dessert can't eclipse the bitter taste of betrayal. Tiffani's livelihood and her independence are on the line. Walking away from their sensual chemistry won't be easy—but is trusting him a recipe for heartache?
In The Sweetest Kiss, Candace Shaw skillfully created dynamic characters and an intriguing storyline. Tiffani was depicted as a strong, independent heroine. She was a single mom and business owner. Even though there was a strong chemistry between Tiffani and Broderick, she hesitated to get into a committed relationship and struggled with maintaining her stance on relationships while being fearful of losing control. As for Broderick, he’s that hero that you love to love. Although Tiffani placed him in the friend zone early on and he was misunderstood at times, I loved his persistence as he attempted to prove his feelings for her. Overall, it was a sweet and steamy romance novel that you that you won’t want to miss.
