A free-spirited baker becomes the best kind of mess in her uptight landlord’s perfectly ordered life in this next installment of the Off Guard series by Katie Ruggle writing as Katie Allen
Leah loves everything about her bakery—the heavenly smells, the satisfaction of feeding people and, of course, unlimited cookies. The only thing she doesn’t like is her uptight landlord’s daily visits. Sure, the man’s drop-dead gorgeous, but for someone with an insatiable taste for treats, he’s anything but sweet.
Army vet Hamilton knows he comes off as rigid. He just can’t seem to bite his tongue around Leah—he might be a virgin but he can imagine a dozen better ways to use his mouth. But when the woman he considers absolutely delicious is threatened by an unwanted admirer, Hamilton intervenes, captivating Leah with his softer side.
Now the man Leah couldn’t avoid is swiftly becoming the one she can’t resist. Unrelenting temptation soon overwhelms them both, leading to an indulgence in everything they’ve been craving. But when past actions bring a fallout neither imagined, they’ll be forced to confront whether their affair is half-baked—or something to savor forever.

I absolutely loved this book. Amazing read, fun, hot steamy and just great. It's a love story between landlord Hamilton and copper Leah. After knowing each other for months, the unusual event at the bakery pushes them to spend time together. So Leah is starting to see the real character from Hamilton. He is really different than the normal people, he is aware of that and not hiding. But Leah likes him either way and when their relationship turns into physical it does not take much that feelings grew deeper. Both Leah and Hamilton are great developed, I liked that Hamilton does not change that much, perhaps with Leah, he is different and more open but he is still the same. I liked this kind of story with funny elements, great characters steamy action and a little bit of suspense. I volunteered to review an ARC of this book for Netgelly
