Lucy Kendall returns from a tour of the Continent, her luggage filled with the latest fashions and a mind fired by inspiration. After tasting Europe’s best confections, she’s sure she’ll come up with a recipe that will save her father’s struggling candy business and reverse their fortunes. But she soon discovers that their biggest competitor, the cheat who swindled her father out of his prize recipe, has now hired a promotions manager–a cocky, handsome out-of-towner who gets under Lucy’s skin.

Charlie Clarke’s new role at Standard Manufacturing is the chance of a lifetime. He can put some rough times behind him and reconnect with the father he’s never known. The one thing he never counted on, however, was tenacious Lucy Kendall. She’s making his work life miserable…and making herself impossible for him to forget.

My Thoughts:

My, the rivalry of a couple that doesn’t even know that they are in love with each other! I enjoyed reading this book, although it was based on one of the weirdest things I would have ever thought of. Candy! Yes, that’s right.

When Lucy returns home from a tour in Europe, she doesn’t expect her father to be in bed sick neither does she expect that the family is about to be sold from under their feet. After she finds out, she is devastated and determined to find a candy recipe that would bring them back to the top.

The day Lucy and Charles collide while walking on the sidewalk is a turning point for both of them. They both don’t know that they are rivals in the business world. When Lucy finds herself falling for Charles charms, she thinks that she has finally found the right man for her.

But will that love be able to stand in the storm when they both realize who the other is? Or will the storm be too strong for both of them?

I hope you enjoy reading this book as much as I did. There were some quite humorous moments and others where you could feel the hurt that Lucy was going through.
