She’s everything he’s not looking for in a wife…

When not-so-sweet sabotage strikes Bebe Waterston’s gourmet chocolate factory, things start looking hopeless. But she’s not a quitter. After sacrificing her personal life to prove she can run the family business, she’ll do anything to save it—including accepting help from an unlikely source: San Francisco’s high society “ Prince Charming” .

Sam Sugarman’s on a mission to marry. And in Sam’s family, finding a wife follows a recipe that starts with a box of Waterston’s Chocolates. When the supply runs out right before Valentine’s Day, the savvy CFO steps in to solve the problem, and finds the cure for his sweet tooth in the spitfire redhead. But now his dilemma is two-fold: convince Bebe he isn’t the serial-dating playboy she believes him to be and keep her safe from the person menacing her and her business.

Thrown together as the danger escalates, the mismatched duo tangles in and out of the bedroom. With a benefit gala and the fast-approaching, day-of-love deadline, they’ll need more than the gold-foil delicacies destined for a bride by chocolate.


I received an ARC of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

This is another new-to-me author. This is one thing I love in NetGalley. I keep finding all these authors that I’ve never heard of before. I keep trying out their books. Some of them don’t work for me. But some of them actually become part of my favorites. Fortunately, this book is something I enjoyed. Therefore, this gamble paid off in a way.

I like the suspense angle, although I would have liked it better if it was more thrilling. I like the way the romance was incorporated with business, the chocolate business nonetheless. I liked the heroine because she was a great girl, and I liked how hard she works. The hero was also okay, but the heroine overshadowed him. At least, that’s how it was for me. All in all, this is a good story that will work great if you are looking for an easy read that you can finish right away.

I don’t know if I loved this book. I liked it, yes. This is only my first book from this author, and I can say that I am more than open to checking out new books from her in the future.
