If opposites do actually attract, then Gunnar Erickson and Frankie Reeves take the cake.
Frankie Reeves is complicated, even though she won’t admit it. She fills her days working as an ER nurse, taking care of her mom, and searching for the father she never knew. Anything else has no place in her perfectly compartmentalized, purposefully simple life. Attachments? No thank you. She has no time for that.
Gunnar Erickson recently moved to Green Valley to train at Viking MMA with his brother Cage. Being the youngest of the Erickson clan, he’s always felt like he has something to prove, and now that he’s finished with college, it’s his time to shine. But before he can step into the ring, a freak accident sends him to the ER and into the care of one Frankie Reeves.
While he’s immediately smitten, she pretends to be unfazed by this six-foot-three, two hundred and thirty-pound beef cake. Gunnar sets out to prove to Frankie that, not only does she like him more than she wants to admit, but he’s not the uneducated, brute she assumes he is. To Frankie, he’s the worst kind of complication, but that doesn’t make it easy to stay away.
‘Beef Cake’ is a full-length contemporary romance, can be read as a standalone, and is book #4 in the Donner Bakery series, Green Valley World, Penny Reid Book Universe.

Taking a Chance!
Frankie loves taking care of her patients but doesn’t take care of herself. She goes through alone and isolated.

Set in the fantastic world of Penny Reid's Green Valley is the newest installment from Jiffy Kate.
This is Gunnar and Frankie's story and I fell hard for both of them!
Frankie is a product of her upbringing. She is guarded and structured in her world, everything has it's place and she feels like she is OK with it. Her past is a blur and she wants and needs to know more, but at what cost?
Gunnar Erickson is an upcoming MMA fighter. But he is a gentle soul, he is kind and oh so patient and goodness knows he loves a challenge. And when he meets Frankie, he knows she is his greatest challenge of all. The battle to win her heart and soul and he is amazing at it!
This story has heart and heat and some really poignant moments. I was so enamored of this story and these characters, it was hard to say goodbye at the end.
It was fun to see past characters from Jiffy Kate's previous Donner Bakery series. It was like a mini family reunion!
