Overview

What an earl wants isn’t always what he gets…

British Billionaire and modern day earl of Spenserfield, Sebastian Romanov only wants one thing in life: To reclaim his position as president of Romanov Industries. But first he has to clean up his reputation to convince the Board that he’s a dependable bloke who’s willing to put the company above everything, including his personal life. Finally given an excuse to sort things out with his estranged twin brother, he boards a jet to Holland Springs, North Carolina, never dreaming he’d find the solution to his all his problems in the town’s sexy caterer, Daisy Barnes.

She’s going to serve him his just desserts…

Daisy Barnes, owner of The Sweet Spot, has plans. Plans that don’t include posing as some arrogant—yet sexy as hell—earl’s fiancée. But when unexpected insurance bills –to the tune of two hundred and fifty thousand dollars—from her mother’s unsuccessful battle with cancer come due, she’s forced to accept his offer and his money. Only problem for Daisy—underneath that cold exterior is a man that can set her on fire with just one touch.

As Sebastian and Daisy spend more time together, they find it harder and harder to not give into temptation. Soon neither can tell where the fake romance ends and true love begins…

    Just Desserts is a deliciously sinful story that will curl your

    Just Desserts is a deliciously sinful story that will curl your toes and leave you breathless! Sebastian Romanov wants to be President of Romanov Industries once again, but in order to do that he has to clean up his image. This billionaire playboy has a lot of convincing to do to get back into the boards good graces. When he visits his brother to reconcile he meets beautiful and sexy caterer Daisy Barnes.

    Daisy owns The Sweet Spot and finally business is doing well for her. When she meets sexy and annoying Sebastian she wants to slap him for offering to pay her for pretending to be his fiancé, but when her mother’s insurance bills come in she really has no choice if she wants to keep her business.

    These two characters are just a prefect example of how the right person can bring out the best in you, and at times the worst. As the pretend they both realize that maybe they really do not want to pretend. Sebastian can be a really sweet and caring man, but then his ego comes and slaps you in the face and your reminded that he can be an absolute ass. Daisy is fierce in her loyalty to those she loves and she starts to see through Sebastian’s façade. Just when you think everything is going to work out for them, secrets and lies that were buried rise to the surface and threaten everything they have built together. Is their love strong enough to make it through the storm?

    Sink it to a wonderful love story that shows the power of love and how it can over come even the tallest obstacles.

    I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    I've been wanting to read Sebastian's story since he started man

    I've been wanting to read Sebastian's story since he started manipulating Sasha and Rose in Third Time's a Charm. He's cold, calculating, and due for his Just Desserts.

    Daisy is a sweet, small town girl just looking to pay off bills so she can get on with growing her business. When Sebastian proposes a plan to wipe her debt, it's an offer she can't refuse.

    Valentine blends her usual quick wit and tale of redemption for another sexy read.

    Too much repetition...

    It was nice for once that the man was the one who acted like a love struck moron in front of the girl. The guy was the one staring, sweating, mute and generally acting like a jackass! I truly hate it when authors write parts like that for females, making them look like blithering idiots, but this time that was all Sebastian...hilarious!

    Pretty good read, kind of repetitive from the last two books though, so I'm glad that for this next book we are through with the Romanov's b/c quite frankly I'm tired of them trying to fix their images by doing underhanded, shady deeds to their women. All this repetition is getting really boring and just expected. I liked Daisy's character up until she forgave Sebastian in five seconds. After everything he did and said to her, believe me he would have needed to grovel for so much longer than five seconds. She was a major pushover and as a result I lost all respect for her.

    What is the deal with Sebastian and Christian's mother? That woman has lost all her marbles! BTW....Sebastian's piercings' and tattoos....super hot!

    Not a good book.

    The story is poorly written. It skips from scene to scene without warning, and the premise isn't very realistic. Wasted money.

    The earl of Spenserfield, Sebastian Romanov has many issues to d

    The earl of Spenserfield, Sebastian Romanov has many issues to deal with. He wants to become president of his family company again after he did some bad things, he wants to get a relationship with his brother again and he wants Daisy. He has trouble doing these things because he has been told he is just like his father and believes them. he doesn't like to show his feelings and comes off as rude and overbearing. Daisy has a business called The Sweet Shoppe and has had her heart broke before. Now when her business seems to be going good she receives some large insurance bills with no way to pay.Sebastian has a way to help her. he wants her to pretend to be his fiance to help get his company back. What they both don't plan on is secrets may tear them apart just when they may not want to just pretend anymore.




    Sebastian is like two different men rolled into one. He can be sweet and caring and other times nothing short of an ass. One thing is for sure no matter how he is acting is he is one sexy man. There more you read this book the more you begin to understand  him. Daisy is a caring person as you see from the start. She is loyal to her friends and will do anything to help them. She has a good heart but not a lot of self confidence. Both these characters are broke in some way and really seem to bring the best and worse out in each other. I liked both of them very much.




    I so enjoyed this book. Getting to see all sides of the story from both characters really helped get to know them. By the time you finish reading you feel as if you have just met new friends. The author does a great job in writing this book. You feel you are seeing these things for yourself whether its a yummy cupcake or a visit to funny named inn. You get a great love story that is packed with secrets, heartache and tender moments. Not to mention some very sexy scenes that leave you panting for more. Have to love a tattooed man. I love forward to getting the other books in this series to see what all I have missed. You can read this as a stand alone so no worries. You still will fall in love with this book just like I did.

    Bastian, at last I get your story! Ever since I read Marquita



    Bastian, at last I get your story! Ever since I read Marquita Valentine's first book, Twice Tempted, I've been anxious for her to share Bastian with us. With each book, my desire to see his story only increased. And while I enjoyed finally reading Just Desserts, I do have to be honest-- I was ever-so-slightly disappointed.




    Sebastian Romanov is a very prim, proper, and well, uncaring person. His childhood was messed up, to say the least, due to his bastard of a father and witch of a mother. And while I could understand where his emotional issues came from, I was still very annoyed by him throughout the book. He was hot one moment and ice cold the next, and it was enough to make my head spin...as well as make me want to slap him a few times for the things he did or said to Daisy. Also, I didn't feel like he groveled enough in the end, but perhaps that is just me.




    Despite the love/hate relationship I had with Bastian, I still enjoyed Just Desserts. Marquita's voice was still present, and she has a way of writing that I can't help but love, every time.




    I really liked Sebastian and Daisy's story, but a few glitches stopped me from full on loving it. However, I was still very happy with Just Desserts. As with all of Valentine's books, there were some cute moments (ie, the emails and texts between “Jules” and Daisy), some fun moments, and a good dose of sexy ones, as well. It may not be a perfect book, but any fan of Valentine will love it, and it's a book that will appeal to many readers—I will be recommending it to others. It may not have been my favorite book by this author, but overall I can't complain. I will continue to anxiously await her future books
