Ice Erickksen has “one-night stand” written all over him. Once he’s finished shooting the Big Sky Pie reality show, this hot-as-hell TV producer is going to hightail it out of Montana and return to his glamorous life in L.A. But Ice gets into hot water when one of the goodies in the pie shop-a delightful blonde with marriage on her mind-burns up the camera lens.

Andrea Lovette, the manager of the shop, always picks the bad boys. But after her divorce, she’s determined to find the good family man that her two young sons deserve. Although Andrea’s body sizzles whenever Ice is near, she knows in her heart that he’s not marriage material. Then why does the bad boy still seem like such a good idea?

 

Review: I have read the two previous books in this series, Delectable and Delicious, and enjoyed them so I jumped at the chance to read and review book three in the series.

We were reunited with characters we’ve met before and introduced to new ones but BiBi and her daddy still rubbed me the wrong way. At first the reality show plot put me off but Lee was able to reel me in by making people real even knowing cameras were rolling. Ice and Bobby, the producers of the show, had their show biz side and their personal side that was more palatable. There was so much going on between the show, the bakery, personal lives and town dynamics to name a few that there was never a dull moment. Ice and Andrea had immediate chemistry that sizzled on the page and while they had fun while casually hooking up Ice wasn’t looking for anything permanent and Andrea didn’t think he would be good step-daddy material to her two boys.

There was lots of loving but no real romance throughout. There was an unexpected happily ever after and nice closure but an epilogue would have been the whipped cream on the pie.

I look forward to reading book four in the series, Decadent, as well as other books written by Lee.

Favorite Quote: BiBi glanced away, then back at Molly, her lips purse in disbelief. “Well, then, I hope for your sake it doesn’t turn out that they expect some nitty-gritty, redneck-female, back-stabbing bitchiness.”
