Just Desserts Blog Tour - Review & Giveaway

Hi everyone! I have a stop on the Just Desserts blog tour. There is a review and giveaway for you all!

Just Desserts
Holland Springs Series Book Three 
By: Marquita Valentine

What an earl wants isn’t always what he gets… 

British Billionaire and modern day earl of Spenserfield, Sebastian Romanov only wants one thing in life: To reclaim his position as president of Romanov Industries. But first he has to clean up his reputation to convince the Board that he’s a dependable bloke who’s willing to put the company above everything, including his personal life. Finally given an excuse to sort things out with his estranged twin brother, he boards a jet to Holland Springs, North Carolina, never dreaming he’d find the solution to his all his problems in the town’s sexy caterer, Daisy Barnes. 

She’s going to serve him his just desserts… 

Daisy Barnes, owner of The Sweet Spot, has plans. Plans that don’t include posing as some arrogant—yet sexy as hell—earl’s fiancĂ©e. But when unexpected insurance bills –to the tune of two hundred and fifty thousand dollars—from her mother’s unsuccessful battle with cancer come due, she’s forced to accept his offer and his money. Only problem for Daisy—underneath that cold exterior is a man that can set her on fire with just one touch. 

As Sebastian and Daisy spend more time together, they find it harder and harder to not give into temptation. Soon neither can tell where the fake romance ends and true love begins…

My Review
 The earl of Spenserfield, Sebastian Romanov has many issues to deal with. He wants to become president of his family company again after he did some bad things, he wants to get a relationship with his brother again and he wants Daisy. He has trouble doing these things because he has been told he is just like his father and believes them. he doesn't like to show his feelings and comes off as rude and overbearing. Daisy has a business called The Sweet Shoppe and has had her heart broke before. Now when her business seems to be going good she receives some large insurance bills with no way to pay.Sebastian has a way to help her. he wants her to pretend to be his fiance to help get his company back. What they both don't plan on is secrets may tear them apart just when they may not want to just pretend anymore.

Sebastian is like two different men rolled into one. He can be sweet and caring and other times nothing short of an ass. One thing is for sure no matter how he is acting is he is one sexy man. There more you read this book the more you begin to understand  him. Daisy is a caring person as you see from the start. She is loyal to her friends and will do anything to help them. She has a good heart but not a lot of self confidence. Both these characters are broke in some way and really seem to bring the best and worse out in each other. I liked both of them very much.

I so enjoyed this book. Getting to see all sides of the story from both characters really helped get to know them. By the time you finish reading you feel as if you have just met new friends. The author does a great job in writing this book. You feel you are seeing these things for yourself whether its a yummy cupcake or a visit to funny named inn. You get a great love story that is packed with secrets, heartache and tender moments. Not to mention some very sexy scenes that leave you panting for more. Have to love a tattooed man. I love forward to getting the other books in this series to see what all I have missed. You can read this as a stand alone so no worries. You still will fall in love with this book just like I did.
