Synopsis:

For the past year, Tasha has thrown herself into her catering business with her sisters, but she’s been keeping a secret. The hot, moody owner of Prime Beef is the man she left behind in college…the man she thought she’d never see again. He’s also the only man she’s ever loved.

For the past year, Jericho Smythe has been waging a war with himself. Does he want to know why Natasha broke his heart and left without looking back? Hell yes. But he’s paralyzed by the glimpses he’s gotten of her at Three Sisters Catering and he hasn’t been ready for a confrontation.

Neither of them are content with their lives, but so much has happened since those stolen moments in college. Can the right amount of spice remind them of the love they once shared? A Touch of Cinnamon may be all they need to give Tasha and Jericho back the richness they’ve been lacking.

Review

Bethany Lopez is a new author for me and one I will definitely seek out in future. She has a great writing style that is comparable with many good author’s books I’ve already devoured.

Natasha and Jericho meet at college and fast form a firm friendship and love for one another. Tash gets a call from one of her sisters letting her know that their mother is in a bad way and she should come home, which she does…but doesn’t explain it to Jericho. Years later they meet again…this is their story!

I thoroughly enjoyed the great descriptions of the rooms in the Inn Boonsboro, so much so I had to check them out online! Wonderful descriptions throughout the book of both settings and characters help to easily paint the scenes in your mind.

The characters are extremely likeable..except Jericho’s mother..but also very real. The issues are normal everyday ones that readers can easily relate to like finding a balance in your life, family connections (both good and bad) and how important communication is for everyone.

This is quite a fast paced book and super easy to read. It’s a ‘feel good’ story and really does entertain and leave readers feeling good. It is a sweet romance but also has a touch of suspense to keep you on your toes! There is a fabulous touch of humour sprinkled throughout as well to balance things out.

EXCERPT:

Someone pounded on the door behind me, causing me to jump and squeal in surprise. I turned to look at the still-closed door, and knew who I’d find on the other side.

Shit.

I wiped my cheeks, put on a brave face, and opened the door.

“Hey,” I managed, even though Jericho stood before me, seething.

I took a step back, then another as he started toward me, slamming the door behind him as he let himself inside.

I tried to back farther away, but he was there, taking me in his arms and lowering his face to mine. I opened my mouth to protest, and that was all the invitation Jericho needed.

It was like coming home, his lips on mine, familiar and oh, so wonderful. I sighed and practically melted against him as he deepened the kiss. My arms went up and around his neck, to steady myself, and to finally feel him. His hair in my fingers, his chest against mine, and his soft, supple lips.

Everything … this was everything. He was everything.

Sweet and sensual quickly turned to unbridled passion as the years apart disappeared and there was only now.

His hands were working on my dress as mine were unbuttoning his shirt, both of us eager to be skin on skin. Everything was on fire, and I worried if I didn’t feel him, touch him, have him right then, I’d burn out.

Hurry,” I said, desperate for him.

“You’re driving me crazy,” Jericho muttered, and then, we were free.
