Ivy Gibson has a way with chocolate and sugar that makes angels weep. But this baking genius knows, from long experience, when she lets her gypsy heart settle, she’s the one crying. At loose ends after a disastrous catering partnership with her dirty, rotten ex-boyfriend, Ivy finds herself helping out at her cousin’s start-up Nashville bakery. One year is what she plans for, but before her time is up, things get complicated.
Burke Wentworth is the definition of complicated. The hotelier and real estate developer is juggling the reopening of his family hotel and the recent left-at-the-altar scandal when his bride literally ran away. Though he hates being the focus of speculation, when an old nemesis declares social media war on Burke, it's time to come out blazing.
A mutually beneficial relationship. That’s what Burke proposes to Ivy. He’ll help her find a worthy replacement for Sugar Babies Sweet Shop and she’ll offer him a no-strings-attached cover while he finalizes the reopening of the Wentworth Hotel. But when head-in-the-clouds Ivy spends time with feet-on-the-ground Burke, neither is prepared for the way their sweet-nothing relationship just might turn into everything.
