Review/Giveaway: Just Desserts by Marquita Valentine

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 fiancée. 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:

This is my first Marquita Valentine story, and I enjoyed it. This is my first Holland Springs book and I enjoyed Sebastian and Daisy’s love story. I’ll admit that Sebastian was very devious, yet I loved him. Daisy and Sebastian, have a hard road, mostly because of other people’s influences.

Daisy is a baker and an owner of a sweets shop, and she’s totally sweet. She the exact opposite of Sebastian and I enjoyed watching such a sweet woman fall for a big bad alpha type man.

Overall, it’s an enjoyable read, and I will definitely check out the other books in the series.

About the Author:

New York Times Bestselling Author, MARQUITA VALENTINE, writes small town romances that are anything but small. Lisa Kleypas, Carly Phillips and Rachel Gibson are her favorite contemporary authors. Marquita met her husband aka Hot Builder at Sonic when they were in high school. She suggests this location to all of her single friends in search of a good man -- and if that doesn't work, they can console themselves with cheesy tatertots. She lives in North Carolina in a very, very small town with Hot Builder and their two children.
