Award-winning author Robin Kaye proves that home is where the heart is, even for a bad boy from Red Hook, Brooklyn.
Logan Blaise expected to be taking a quick break from his successful vineyard in Napa to visit his hometown of Brooklyn. But what he finds is a complete mess: His father is sicker than he’d imagined, and Logan is responsible for keeping the family restaurant running smoothly. When the chef quits, he’s forced to hire the first person who applies for the job—Skye Maxwell, a beautiful enigma with great skills and gaps in her résumé.
Skye is determined to make it on her own, without trading on her famous family name. Working in the community of Red Hook offers the perfect opportunity to stay out of the limelight while pursuing her dreams. At first glance, charismatic Logan seems exactly like all the shallow men she knew back home. But as she notices his small-town roots and strong family ties, the Brooklyn bad boy and his restaurant start to feel exactly like where she really belongs....
Kaye's second Bad Boys of Red Hook contemporary (after Back to You) pairs sexy vintner Logan Blaise and chef Skye Maxwell in an unappealing, coincidence-laden story. Logan returns to his Brooklyn roots to find his adoptive father quite ill and unable to run his restaurant, the Crow's Nest. Logan must fill in as manager until Pop gets back on his feet. When the chef suddenly decamps for a family emergency, Logan is left adrift for the next dinner rush. Skye, who is fleeing a family restaurant legacy as she strives to make it on her own merits rather than her famous family name, just happens to be wandering the somewhat disreputable Red Hook neighborhood and stumbles across the "help wanted" sign. The usual passions stir, and awkward subplots waylay the couple. Wooden dialogue and a few too many deus ex machina moves create a skeptical distance.
