Laurel McBane has always relied on her friends for support, especially when her dream of attending culinary school was almost ruined by her parents’ financial problems. Now Laurel is repaying the kindness of her friends by creating extravagantly luscious tiers of cakes and other confectionary delights that add the perfect touch to their clients’ weddings.
As for romance, Laurel believes in it — in theory. But she’s too low-key to appreciate all the luxuries that other women seem to long for. What she does appreciate is a strong, intelligent man, a man just like Parker’s older brother, Delaney Brown, on whom Laurel has had a mega-crush since childhood.
But some infatuations last longer than others, and Laurel is convinced that the Ivy League lawyer is still out of her reach. Plus, Del is too protective of Laurel to ever cross the line with her, or so she thinks. When Laurel’s quicksilver moods get the better of her — leading to an angry, hot, altogether mind-blowing kiss with Del — she’ll have to quiet the doubts in her mind to turn a moment of passion into forever….

Very flat, but great ending
This book was very flat. The buildup to the romance was too unemotional, I expected Del to be a bit more worked up about changing his relationship with Laurel (especially after his reaction to Jack and Emma). ALSO: this, like Bed of Roses had almost more discussion between friends about the sex and relationship than there was any actual writing about Del/Laurel's relationship.
HOWEVER: the ending is one of the best I've read in a while. It was a bit too quick and sudden (maybe because we were not reading Del's mind enough in the last few chapters) but really romantic.
