This book was so good! I can barely believe it was a debut novel and I loved so many things about it. Jack is delicious. Seriously. A sexy man who can cook and has a penchant for dirty talk? Yes, please! I’ll take two big servings. Then there was Harper. I adored her vulnerability and how her confidence bloomed with Jack’s patience and determination to win her over. Their chemistry was hot and I really liked them as couple. The story was funny and the pace was excellent for the most part. It was a bit slow going for me in the beginning, but after that I was hooked and flipping through pages furiously. Until I hit that ending. I almost dropped my phone!
