When Laini Sullivan lands a job designing Nick Pantalone's coffee shop, there are two problems: one, Nick's nephew Joe hates all of her ideas and two, Laini has to admit he's right--she's a disaster at design. Still, she can't risk losing the job. To compromise, Joe brings in help on the project, while Laini continues to bake the goodies that keep his customers lining up.
Their relationship is moving along, so when new guy Officer Mark Hall implies that Joe's family is tied to the mob, Laini doesn't want to believe it. But things spin out of control when she meets the family, including "the uncles," who seem to confirm Mark's suspicions. To make things worse, Nana Pantalone makes it clear Laini isn't the kind of girl she has in mind for her grandson. Laini's not sure if she should give Joe the benefit of the doubt or just set her sites on Mark and fuhgetaboutit.

Posted March 14, 2011 by V. Corso , Hengelo, the NetherlandsI honestly wanted to like this book but I didn't.
Laini is the most unbelievable character I have encountered since the Cheshire cat. The other characters were even more two dimensional and the way the "christian" message was put across with a sledghammer turned me off completely.
The story finally got moving with the confrontation at Valmont's but it started going downhill again really quickly.
Really happy the download didn't cost me a lot of money. I shall avoid this author in future.
