Synopsis

Award-winning author Robin Kaye proves that home is where the heart is, even for a bad boy from Red Hook, Brooklyn.

Logan Blaise expected to be taking a quick break from his successful vineyard in Napa to visit his hometown of Brooklyn. But what he finds is a complete mess: His father is sicker than he’d imagined, and Logan is responsible for keeping the family restaurant running smoothly. When the chef quits, he’s forced to hire the first person who applies for the job—Skye Maxwell, a beautiful enigma with great skills and gaps in her résumé.

Skye is determined to make it on her own, without trading on her famous family name. Working in the community of Red Hook offers the perfect opportunity to stay out of the limelight while pursuing her dreams. At first glance, charismatic Logan seems exactly like all the shallow men she knew back home. But as she notices his small-town roots and strong family ties, the Brooklyn bad boy and his restaurant start to feel exactly like where she really belongs....

An adequate effort for the right romance audience but a step down from Back To You.

Reviewed by Wendy Clyde on Jul 10 2013

This has the bones for a really nice book...But for some reason the chemistry just did not work. The writing was choppy at first and I found the first few chapters really hard going... I didn't like the dialogue, internal or otherwise.
