Rock Star Sam Weiss is in small town Haven, North Carolina to clear his head, stay out of the spotlight, and write some new music. Too bad the lyrics haven’t been cooperating lately….until he goes in to A Piece of Cake bakery and meets it’s owner, Carly Taylor. When a last minute bakery delivery strands Carly at Sam’s place right as an ice storm hits, things really start to heat up. But what will happen when the storm passes and reality sets in?
This is a short one (about 80 pages) so it’s of course insta-love for these two; however this does not bother me as sometimes a quick love story is all I need. I look forward to more from this series.
I’m happy to say that Sam is a great hero and there’s no douchey rock stars in this one! This is a pet peeve of mine and I was briefly worried but hoped that based on Rachel Lacey’s previous books, that it wouldn’t be an issue. Sam and Carly have a great connection and when they go their separate ways they realize they don’t want to be apart.

Carly Taylor is pretty sure she’s dreaming. It’s not possible that Sam Weiss – rock star god and sexy hotness personified – is actually in her bakery. This sort of thing never happens in the too-small town of Haven. Or to her. And being stranded in a secluded mountain cabin with the deliciously decadent Sam during an ice storm? This is definitely not Carly’s real life . . .
Now there’s just the two of them, a roaring fire, lots of food and drink, and a sizzling attraction – one that just might make Carly do the unexpected. For one night, she’ll live the fantasy. For one night, nothing else matters. . . not her struggling business, not her lonely life, not Sam’s bad-boy reputation. But sometimes one night can turn one crazy, beautiful dream into something real.
