" Mocha Chocolate Chip. . . Caramel Fudge. . .Strawberry Lemonade. . .Butter Rum. . .There's no such thing as guilt when it's another delicious bitch and bake session with the women of the Cupcake Club. . .
When Honey D'Amourvell inherits property on tiny Sugarberry Island, she's prepared to start a whole new life. Her plan is simple--make a home, open a shop, and maybe, finally, find a place to belong. But the building she now owns is leased to none other than the owner of Babycakes, which means her spot is already occupied. Honey isn't sure how to put down roots when she has nowhere to plant them. But sexy, softhearted mechanic Dylan Ross seems determined to help. He's everything she never imagined she would find in a man, and each kiss is more persuasive than the last. . .
Soon enough, Honey is another important ingredient in the spicy mix of the Cupcake Club. But will Dylan convince her that what she craves most is his love?"

This is part of a series, but since I haven't read any of the other books I can assure you that you do not need to read them before you read this one. What I can tell you is that after reading this particular novel, you may do as I did and go and buy the rest of them.

This was definitely one of the most unusual books that I have read in a long time. It's filled with colorful characters, interesting problems and a man,Dylan Ross, that just needs to fix everything and perhaps even everyone but most especially Honey.Honey D'Amourvell, a rather mousey looking, seemingly crazy lady that doesn't want to be touched...at ALL!

We have a woman, Honey D'Amourvell, traveling from one coast to another to collect on her aunts inheritance. Using this inheritance will allow Honey to not only create her art in a public environment, it will allow her to interact with the public. Something she hasn't done in more than eight years. You see she is touch sensitive. But as she is pulling into town, her car gives out and she is forced to take it to the mechanic, a rather surely southern gentleman. While she is waiting for her car she sees that what is supposed to be her store has already been rented. And so the story begins!

I really don't want to spoil the book for you so I'll leave my synopsis at that.

The character growth in this novel is phenomenal, the heat between Honey and Dylan is scorching and the author uses a unique technique to keep fanning the flames. I mean, be ready to take a couple of cold showers as you are reading this book. And be prepared to do so even before Honey and Dylan ever really DO anything! There is humor aplenty as well as many parts where you will be looking for the Kleenex but since this is a romance you can be assured it will all work out for the best in the end.
