Sweet Spot by Susan Mallery is the second book in the “Bakery Sisters” trilogy series. Publisher: Harlequin, August 2008
“Responsibility” should be Nicole Keyes’s middle name. After all, not many people would sacrifice their lives to run the family bakery and raise a younger sibling. But with Nicole’s twin sister now blissfully married and her younger sis turning out more femme fatale than girl-next-door, super reliable Nicole is getting sick of putting everyone else’s needs first!
Enter Hawk. The deliciously sexy former NFL player offers Nicole a taste of the freedom she craves. Hawk may know the way, blindfolded, to her sweet spot, but Nicole’s not about to let him get close enough to break her heart. Of course, she might not have a choice in the matter if Hawk’s past keeps getting in the way of their present.…
All Nicole wants is to have all her sisters together and to have a family who she can love and then Hawk walks into her bakery. What started out as a “deal” turns into something more for Nicole and Hawk. In between being a surrogate mother to a young teenager and a dog and falling in love with a widowed father who have to leave his past behind can Nicole and Hawk have the future they both desire. This was an enjoyable romance story and I can’t wait to read the final story featuring the youngest Keyes woman.
