Marissa Grayson’s dream went up in smoke. A devastating fire has ripped apart her family’s bed and breakfast, leaving her off-kilter and scrambling to repair the damage. What she doesn’t need, or have time for, is Rhenn Burleski. Sexy, confident, and dangerous to her heart. A man who clearly knows his way around the female body and will leave the moment the sheets start to cool. Yet that doesn’t stop her from making a deal with the devil himself.
Work hard, play harder. That’s Rhenn’s life motto. An electrician by day, Rhenn turns it up at night, always with a different lady friend in tow. He makes sure they know the score: he’s not looking for anything more than one night of fun. However, he knows the second he meets the shy daughter of the bed and breakfast’s owner that his life is never going to be the same. As hard as he tries, he just can’t resist one taste.
What happens when their time is up and Rhenn must leave, returning to his old life? Will they be able to walk away, hearts unscathed, or will their time together prove to be nothing more than a fading memory?

Amazing start to a new series!
Love and Pancakes is the first book in Lacey’s all-new series, Rockland Falls. I have had the pleasure of reading all of Lacey’s books and have loved them all. I know I will fall in the love with the characters, the towns, and their stories. The Rockland Falls series is full of new characters and also some previous ones from the Summer Sisters series. You don not need to read that series to fall for this one but you will definitely want to after meeting them.
The night of the fire changed everything. Marissa’s childhood home and bed and breakfast was everything to her and it was almost lost to the flames. It would had if she didn’t take a walk on the beach that night. It was only damaged with smoke, soot, and faulty wiring. It all needed to be cleaned and remodeled. It was going to take months to reopen the doors to her family’s business. The one she ran. Her baby. She couldn’t afford any distractions. Then, he enters her world. Rhenn. A man with a smirk that could melt panties off a nun. And he just so happens to be the electrician who is going to bring the Bed and Breakfast back to working order. Yep. She is screwed.
Rhenn knew from the moment he saw her, soot and all that he wanted a taste. He also knew one taste wouldn’t be enough. That was why he told himself to keep clear of the shy, beautiful woman who he wanted to lay out in his bed. On his bed. On the forest floor. He was only here for a few weeks and he knew she wasn’t the kinda woman who would only want one night of pleasure. She is the kinda woman who would want a forever. Well...he doesn’t do love. He does one night stands. But, he can’t help the way his body and mind reacts to Marissa. Will she be onboard with a little no-strings attached fun while he is in town?
Awe! I love Rhenn and Marissa! The slow burn between them is sexy as hell. The fun banter is refreshing for them both. The way they bring each other out of their comfort zones is both sexy and emotional. I liked Rhenn is My Kinda Forever as Nick’s best friend but I fell for him hard in this book. I couldn’t wait to see a woman bring him to his knees and Marissa is a perfect match.
Overall...it’s an amazing start to a new series! It’s so fun to get to know new characters and catch up with old ones. This story made me laugh out loud, cry, and get all kinds of hot and bothered.
I’m not sure if she’s feeling the same pull as I am, or if it’s the fact that she looks like Cinderella right now after cleaning the entire castle.
He whispers against my ear and I have to bite back the moan. “What else is on that magical list of yours, Angel?”
“Back when you were younger?” I bet they have stories for days.
“Younger? Shoot, Rhenn. Last Tuesday.”
