Once Judged, Always Judged.
A past filled with harmful teasing isn't easily overcome. Neither is a history of crime and death.
Sicily Moretti comes from a long line of good cooking and large hips. Having graduated at the top of her class from the Culinary Institute of America, she finds success in sugary treats and rich pastries. Having moved from New York to Maine with her closest friend, Kari and Lisa, she's looking for a new start where the building of her own bakery will be her focus. She's not looking for love, nor is she interested in it. She's been judged incorrectly too many times.
Drake DeMarco comes from a long line of crime, his new life a fresh start. His older, Demetri worked hard to help the feisty alpha male cut ties with who he was born to be, his past completely hidden to everyone in the small town of Bar Harbor. He's invested in the town's only gym and is working hard to keep his attention only on his business, but everything changes when a dark-haired beauty begins to steal not only his attention, but his heart.
With a past that would land him in jail, he's beyond scared to let Sicily in. Good thing she doesn't seem in the least bit interested. Will he finally push past his fear of having her judge his family and their nefarious ways and force her to see him for who he is on the inside?
The past follows them until they turn and face it, reconciling who they once were from who they are to become - together.

I love how there is a cross over between series. Totally did not see Drake as a former bad boy. Sicily almost ruined everything with her judgment, fortunately she thought things through to see how well the two of them are together.
I loved Drake & Sicily's story!!! I may like it the most in the trilogy... Sicily's struggles make her so relatable... She has so many self-doubts, yet works so hard to overcome these emotions. This story has a lot of realistic aspects, that really endears you to the characters.. What a perfect ending to all these characters!!!!
This book was definitely better than the last one. I really enjoyed the dynamic between Sicily and Drake.
