Karly Murry has practically grown up in her family's bakery, originally opened by her grandmother, so it's a shock to realize that her father is thinking about selling it in order to pay for the bills. It would be easy to put off money worries, but they're made more desperate by the fact that her grandmother and dad are both having health problems, and the prospect of those medical expenses is hard to ignore. When Jacob Black walks in to talk to her father about buying the bakery and flipping it to another buyer for a profit, it may be the answer to those money worries, but it's also a nightmare. She desperately wants to hate Jacob for intruding, but with the knowledge that it isn't his fault, it gets easier and easier to begin feeling chemistry with this man who's capable of wrecking all of her dreams. Before she knows it, she doesn't know whether to focus on Jacob or the bakery, or whether she should be heartbroken or happy, but one way or another, everything revolves around her bakery and this mysterious buyer.
