Joyann Reese has just moved from her home in New York City to the small town where she spent most of her summer holidays as a child. The great-aunt she hadn’t seen since her early teens, the only adult who’d taught her to love herself, extra curves and all, had died and left her the only place she’d ever felt safe. Moving to a small town opening up her own bakery, all around the holidays was already a bit harrowing, so she didn’t need the extra bother of a love interest.
As a plus size, ‘big girl’ she knew well her limitations and one look at the dreamboat next door told her that he was way out of her league, but that never stopped a girl from dreaming. If only he wasn’t so overbearingly perfect…
Devlin Monroe took one look at his new neighbor when she showed up at his door with her baked offering and smelled trouble. It didn’t take him long to decide that she was a nuisance and a pain not to mention an unwanted distraction in his otherwise ideal existence. He’d had a good thing going in his small hometown until she moved in next door.
She’s nowhere near his type so why does he find himself going out of his way to spar with her, and why is she the last thing on his mind when he lay his head down at night?
