[Pat's Review]: "Wild Kisses"

romance novel cover, contemporary romance, Wild Kisses by Skye Jordan
Wild Kisses by Skye Jordan
Publisher: Montlake Romance (January 10, 2017)
Series: Wildwood, 2
Genre: Contemporary Romance 

Newly divorced, Avery Hart returns home to Wildwood eager to take on her dream opportunity and transform her family’s dive bar into her own bakery. The contractor for hire isn’t just a master with his hands—he’s big, built, and wears a tool belt like nobody’s business. Despite being an ex-con, Trace Hutton is irresistible. Too bad he’d never go for someone as inexperienced as Avery.

Trace needs to focus on the job at hand, not daydream about smearing icing all over the sexy baker…and licking it off. This job is the key to getting his construction company back on its feet after his time in prison. Besides, no one deserves a fresh start more than Avery, and she certainly won’t get that with him.

After a delectable night of passion (and pie), Trace craves something more. But he’ll be damned if he’ll let his checkered past crush her dreams. And as Avery starts to realize how Trace fulfills more than just her physical needs, she struggles with whether to let her history decide her future, or explore the wild new possibilities of forever…

Pat's Review:

Avery Hart is beginning to believe her dream of a bakery/cafe just might come true. She is converting her family's old bar to that dream with the help of a local contractor, Trace Hutton. Trace is an ex-con who bid as low as he could go for this project to get the business and help prove he is no longer the "bad boy" he was growing up. His brother is the local deputy sheriff, and his dad is suffering from dementia; being gone for eight years in prison just adds to his guilt.

"Avery had one goal in life: to create pastries that are better than sex."

She moved back to her home town after a bitter divorce to start over. She lives with her Aunt Phoebe and sister Delaney until her apartment above the store is ready. What she hadn't anticipated was the strong attraction between her and Trace. Judging by the looks and random touches, he feels the same.

Trace's life is ruled by work and his father's Dr's appointments and occasional wanderings. His brother, Zane, helps along with his grandmother, Pearl, but there doesn't seem to be enough time for anything. But the cafe and Avery are his anchor, and he's falling fast. He is keeping some secrets and when a man from his past enters their lives his presence causes heartbreaking consequences.

Trace and Avery pull you into their emotions and you want them to have their happy ending. The romance is hot, the story keeps you interested, and there's some great laughs. I recommend this romantic contemporary and will be looking for more from Ms. Jordan.
