New York Times bestselling author Tessa Bailey returns with a unique, sexy romantic comedy about a young married couple whose rocky relationship needs a serious renovation...
Rosie and Dominic Vega are the perfect couple: high school sweethearts, best friends, madly in love. Well, they used to be anyway. Now Rosie’s lucky to get a caveman grunt from the ex-soldier every time she walks in the door. Dom is faithful and a great provider, but the man she fell in love with ten years ago is nowhere to be found. When her girlfriends encourage Rosie to demand more out of life and pursue her dream of opening a restaurant, she decides to demand more out of love, too. Three words: marriage boot camp.
Never in a million years did Rosie believe her stoic, too-manly-to-emote husband would actually agree to relationship rehab with a weed-smoking hippie. Dom talking about feelings? Sitting on pillows? Communing with nature? Learning love languages? Nope. But to her surprise, he’s all in, and it forces her to admit her own role in their cracked foundation. As they complete one ridiculous—yet surprisingly helpful—assignment after another, their remodeled relationship gets stronger than ever. Except just as they’re getting back on track, Rosie discovers Dom has a secret... and it could demolish everything.
“Her voice feels as fresh and contemporary as a Netflix rom-com.” —Entertainment Weekly

acclaims Laura Florand's work as "sensuous and sumptuous", nominating
her for Best Book of 2013, and NPR says it's "explosive, sensual . . . and
utterly sweet". Now, in her sixth book in the award-winning Amour et
Chocolat series, Florand takes us into a top Paris restaurant’s pastry kitchen
and into the hearts and irresistible temptations of its chefs.
Patrick Chevalier. The charming, laid-back, golden
second-in-command of the Paris pastry kitchen where Sarah worked as intern, who
made everything she failed at seem so easy, and who could have every woman he
winked at falling for him without even trying. She hated him, but she’d risked
too much for this dream to give up on it and walk out just so he wouldn’t break
he didn’t hate her.
Sarah Lin. Patrick’s serious, dark-haired American intern, who looked
at him as if she could see right through him and wasn’t so impressed with what
she saw. As her boss, he knew he should leave her alone. The same way he knew
better than to risk his heart and gamble on love.
But he was
never good at not going after what – or who – he wanted.
He could make magic out of sugar.
But could he mold hate into love?
