    Really good book I loved seeing Justin finally find someone to love He had been so intense through the other two books that I was happy to find out why He was so determined not to get close to anyone that having Layla see right through him was freaking him out He couldn't understand why she got under his skin and why he felt so protective of her I loved the part at the school Layla was so used to doing things by the book and having a plan that when she decided to break out of that mold she wasn't uite sure how to do it Her time with Justin gave her the chance to be different She was amazed by the fact that she ended up feeling so much for him I loved the way that she was there for him without judging him I loved her part at the awards dinner I just wish the school had backed down

    One of those rare category romances where I wish the book was longer because I wanted to learn about what happened to the characters and see some of the themes develop fully Ahoy ye maties slight spoilers ahead Our heroine Layla Taylor is a straight laced teacher who gets stinking drunk after she learns her boyfriend cheated on her with her biggest work rival Her sister sends her childhood nemesis Justin to make sure she safely gets home Unfortuantely someone from her school snaps a picture of her barfing in the bushes before they get to the car Social media takes over and she loses her job within the week Loved the heroine in this story As the story develops she sees how this tightlaced personality of hers has hampered her life choices so she tries new things out Dressing sexy standing up for herself pursuing the man she wants even when he rebuffs her Justin's a wonderful hero He help runs a catering business and specializes in cake decorating He's comfortable with who he is and ignores those wh omake fun of his chosen career And he's not a cop cowboy tycoon or fireman Woo hooHis major obstacle to love was a little too much for me at times He got his high school girlfriend pregnant but her parents made him sign away the rights in a closed adoption This decision eats away at him and does not allow him to get close to women Everytime things look serious he runs away He does research and finds there are other birth fathers like him that feel the same way What bothered me is that this aspect of the story line felt to planned or perhaps over researched to me The author had done her homework but it felt like that aspect of the story was being driven so she could get her research in or something Apart from that it was a delightful story I hope to read of Jeannie Watt's romances Rated on my 5 star romance scale Read in about 3 hours

    Lots of elements that are just different from other romances the hero is a baker who bakes and frosts cakes and there's not one swipe at his masculinity the entire book the heroine asks the hero to help her commit a crime for good reasons and they proceed to commit the crime in a fairly funny scene and the hero may have been the heroine's brothers' best friend growing up but their childhoodteenage relationship was NOT one of secretly pining after one another More like annoying one another and misreading one another all the time out of impatience and not out of suppressed lust But now that they're grown up and their lives are what they expected them to be? Their history is now something they use to create some unexpected intimacy It was a fun dynamic and there was so much fresh and vivid in their interactionsOn the other hand I was a bit ugh too much angst about the hero He had too much going on in such a short space of text and time that it got to be a bit too stressful being in his head sometimes It didn't always flow so well with the sparky chemistry he had with the heroine That and after all the stuff that you don't have in your average romance one of the most ridiculous romance tropes view spoilera secret baby hide spoiler

    VERY enjoyable read Layla's the straightlaced teacher who's always been the responsible one Justin's the same grade as her younger siblings and their history has all been about them tormenting her with all kinds of crazy escapades Well it's been a few years since they've had much interaction and now they're finding that the other person has grown up in ways that make himher uite intriguingI liked Ms Watt's characters they felt very realistic and three dimensional Justin's not just a free spirited playboy even though he plays at being one And Layla's got some cutting loose to do It was great to read how Ms Watt developed their stories I especially enjoyed Layla's foray into breaking and entering ; and surrounded them with a strong and enjoyable supporting castI realize now that Just Desserts was the third in a series; I'm guessing the first two were about his sisters? Will need to go back and read those now

    After discovering her boyfriend is cheating on her with a colleague a teacher goes on a bender that ends up threatening her career but reunites her with a childhood frenemy a pastry chef who is himself dealing with his issues over having fathered a child given up for adoption It was refreshing to read about a birth father coming to terms with this sort of thing; usually the focus is on the women The characters were well developed and the plot was engaging I thought the ending was a bit abrupt but overall as usual for Watt a recommended book

    Good romance story between two people that have their own problems to face and resolve Sometimes the hardest thing to do is to face up to your own mistakes and move forward This author took some unusual problems and tossed in two people who knew each other from childhood that didn't get along I found myself hoping they could work through their problems and end up together

    Two wounded people finding each other and learning how to heal and let the rest of their personality emerge One of the things I like about this line is that it brings up real world issues and challenges
