**I received this book in exchange for an honest review.**
Bears, chocolate, and love, oh my! That’s how that saying goes, right? LOL Well that recipe works for this book. We have Amy, human, curvy, and a chocolatier. Amy is not a happy camper. The building where she has a rental space has been bought and will be used to house YouTube studios. Apparently, that’s an actual thing, which blows my mind. As Amy is packing up her store, in comes Mitchell. He’s a security guard for the building and her ex-boyfriend. *cough cough skeevy jerk face* While Amy is trying to make him go away, she’s rescued by Superman, err, I mean Zach. Gooey eyes are happening, flirting starts, naughty thoughts are had, and then Zach’s full identity is revealed and it’s not Clark Kent. Bummer.
Zach is a Harris, as in Harris Enterprises. *big disappointed sigh* He’s part of the company that killed Amy’s dream. Too dramatic? The thing is, Amy likes the personal touch of having an actual store for her business and her finances are too tight to afford a new decent location. Now I know you’re thinking there’s no way Zach and Amy could make a relationship work. But there’s one huge factor in Zach’s favour…Amy is his mate. (Psst…Zach is the bear part of the equation. LOL)
Zach is a good guy and wants his mate happy, which means resuscitating Amy’s dream by finding her a new location. It just so happens that Zach and Amy have been discussing a rental agreement, yet they didn’t know right away that they were talking to each other. I love that we got to see the conversations between them. They were able to get to know each other without the stigma of Zach’s family name hanging over him.
Unfortunately, while one problem is being resolved, another one is making itself known. It seems there’s been some issues in the local wolf pack and they’re spilling over onto our couple. This issue introduces us to Liam, a wolf shifter and (plot twist) Zach’s Aunt Diana’s mate. There’s a history between this couple and we get a little insight into that while we’re rooting for Zach and Amy’s future. Can Zach and Amy overcome their obstacles? Will Zach ever get to try Amy’s chocolate body lotion? LOL *read the book and you’ll get that reference* Will Liam and Diana get a second chance at love? I’m looking forward to book two. We’ll get the scoop on Steph, Amy’s nurse friend and her co-worker Rex Harris, M.D., Zach’s uncle. It seems there’s more to their story than we know. Think they play Doctor? *snicker*
