Overview

Heather is exhausted most of the time. Holding down three jobs, trying to finish high school and caring for her elderly grandfather and son are all she knows how to do.

Alexander doesn't know if he wants to like the feisty baker. She has a smart mouth, beautiful, and makes his blood stir like no one ever has. But he can't trust. Not anyone. Not with his heart, not with his money and especially not with his love. He decides that while he wants her, he'd just leave her alone and go about his business.

Already broke and barely hanging on, an apartment fire robs them of everything they own. The little family doesn't know what they are going to do. Devastated, she throws herself on the mercy of Alexander James and strikes a bargain. She'll sleep with him if he helps her and her little family get back on their feet. Alex agrees.

Alexander wants the sexy baker in the worst way, and when they come together the attraction can't be denied. But can they breach the walls that they've built around their hearts and learn to trust?

Well I have to say that I was disappointed in the character that is Alexander James. I really liked him when he was seen in the other stories but in this one he became the horses butt. He seemed to think that his name and money gave him rights over others and this is not how I saw his character. His treatment of his intended Heather was not well done and I think his sister Willow needed to take him to the floor again. Heather was a complex character, her past unfolded as the story progressed but again I found myself disappointed in her. She worked so hard to provide for her son and grandfather that even though I understood why she does what she does I think she should have handled it better. Despite my disappointment in the main characters, I loved Jack and the grandpa. This was a fast read, strong supporting characters and main characters you just wanted to smack. Just because the author had a different vision for the main characters than I did ,doesn't mean they were wrong or bad we just had different ideas. I respect the authors vision and did enjoy the read. I look forward to my next adventure in Ms. Barton's work. I was given an ARC for an honest review

This is not one of my favorites by Kathi. I read the Hunter series and after several mentions of Willow and Alexander in those I was excited to see that those two had books as well. That being said I did not care for Alexander or Heather as characters. Alexander just seems to be an overgrown baby. If things aren't going his way he uses his money or family name to fix the problems. He threw around the fact that because he was part owner of the cafe that he had rights to just boss around employees he has never met. Then if that's not bad enough he really does treat Heather like crap. He never asks her side of the story after talking to her mother, and instead of trying to woo Heather he bullies her into doing what he wants and uses her kid as well. Heather is no better. At the beginning I really liked her character. A single mother working wherever whenever she can to make ends meet for her family. She was even working online do get her high school diploma instead of just taking a GED test. But after meeting Alex she just becomes a doormat. Instead of standing up for herself she allows him and his family to bully her around until they get their way. I really do love Kathi's books and writing, but this book just was not one I enjoyed reading.

Ms. Barton hit me good with this one. I found myself choked up and fighting the tears on this touching story about Alexander and Heather. I found myself loving these characters and the ones involved with them. This will be another series I am going to follow that Ms. Barton has written for us. Alexander has decided to sell his share of A&B Computers with his good friend Brick Wells to be closer to his family. He’s a computer programmer and with a heavy heart his share is being sold to a sinister guy named Mik. Mik wants to be able to live free of charge and knows that Alex can make that possible if he eliminates his partner and him. Heather’s life is hard. She works 2 jobs, goes to school, and is raising her son, Jack along with her grandda, Tom. She works at the House of Aroma’s bakery. Alex stops by the bakery one day and happens to save Heather’s boss, Miss Caroline, from being attacked. He’s grown attached to the bakery & finds he has a new little friend named Jack. Alex meets Heather thru the bakery and instantly has a connection with her. Is Alex able to save Heather from the hard life she has known since 15 years of age and being on her own because of a horrible situation that her mother refuses to believe happened to her? What will Mik do to get what he wants and how many people will get hurt by him? Can Alex protect the ones he loves? I fell in love with the James family. Willow and Jared are wonderful people. Alex’s mom and dad are a dream come true. Not only are they a tight family, but a family everyone wishes they had. Very well written Ms. Barton.
