Rachel Farris has not returned to her hometown in fifteen years. The only reason she is returning now is because her advertising career has run into a snag and her grandmother needs her help on the family’s apple orchard. Rachel’s first few minutes in town set the tone for her return in the form of police officer Mike Romo. Not only does Officer “Romeo” give her a stern lecture and an expensive speeding ticket, he also gives Rachel enough eye candy to keep her awake at night. It’s really too bad that the Farris and Romo families have been feuding for as long as Rachel can remember because if she is honest, she will admit that Mike Romo makes her sweat. And that is something that Rachel will never do.
Talk about oil and water! Mike Romo is sex on a stick but very much aware of his job as a police officer. At first he refuses to even admit his attraction to Rachel – she is a “Farris” after all. Speaking of Rachel, I found her to be a typical career woman until I read further and realized just how original she is. Rachel loves her family and falls in love with her own Romeo. From the advertising room to the bedroom, Rachel Farris gives her all – and Mike Romo is putty in her hands. Or is she the putty in Mike’s hands?
The feud dividing these two families is the true matchmaker of Toni Blake’s SUGAR CREEK. The fireworks between Rachel and Mike shined on every page. If you like a well-written, sensual, and often delightfully funny romance then SUGAR CREEK is the book for you. I most definitely will read this one again and again.
