Falling in love is supposed to be the easy part.
But nothing prepared me for losing my wife. I promised her that I’d love again. Find someone to mend my broken heart. And that seems impossible, until the day that I walk into Tilly Carter’s cupcake shop.
I’ve never met a woman like her—sassy, dirty-mouthed, and smells like vanilla and sin. Someone that makes me want to sweep her off her feet.
But there’s pain in her emerald eyes that mirrors my own.
A past that neither of us can truly escape.
Now that I have her, I’ll do anything to keep her.

OMG! I cried so much in this story. It’s so heart felt and sweet. That combined with the fact there is humor makes it a fast incredible book. Can’t recommend it enough. I’ve wanted to read Anthony’s story since book one of the series. It doesn’t disappoint.
always love the gallo but this spin off is really good
“A man like him is meant to be savored.”
The Gallo family reminds me of my own Italian family; full of love and always hosting a big family dinner on Sundays that everyone must attend. They also mourn very deeply when someone they love passes, which is the case with Angelo and his beloved late wife, Marissa. His children are his top priority and he is unsure how they would feel if he started dating. He doesn’t feel it is the right time to be with anyone but from the moment he first saw Tilly, he knew his life would never be the same. Tilly is an angel in his eyes and she makes people smile and lights up every room that she enters. She has warmed his sad and broken heart and he finally felt that he could look forward to a future of love and happiness. Tilly mourns her late husband every day but when Angelo stepped into her cupcake shop her heart skipped a beat, her skin tingled, and life looked a little brighter. Where had he been all of her life? Did Angelo come into her life for a reason and was he the man who will make her smile and keep her safe? My heart broke for Angelo as I began reading this passionate and hopeful story about a grief-stricken couple who weren’t looking for love when they met. They were just taking one day at a time, one step at a time, toward a new life filled with the possibility of a second chance at love.
