Come and Get It (The Bonifay Family)

Come and Get It (The Bonifay Family) by Keira Cole

Sexy Dixie Rose Bonifay has sunk her roots deep in the Texas hill country she calls home. Having dedicated her life to the one thing she loves most—cooking—she’s built her own successful mobile food business catering to the construction workers in the area, and she’s stirring up the appetite of every man around, in more ways than one. 

When smug California architect Quin Halladay comes to town, he sets his sights on Dixie’s ranchland—and on Dixie herself. Confident and charming, he can’t wait to bed the alluring Dixie and add yet another notch to his bedpost. What Quin doesn’t realize is that Dixie can match wits with him every step of the way, and before Quin knows it the Texas beauty has turned the tables on him and he can’t get her out of his head.

As the two get down to business in a romantic Texas two-step, it’s a battle of wills and wits between small-town smarts and big-city arrogance. And with all the local men circling their wagons to protect the woman they’ve come to love and respect, Quin will have to prove himself and choose between the city life he knows and the Texas rose he’s come to love.

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

This whole book was a waste of my time. Wow! Ok, so Dixie Rose, an "innocent" southern widow meets Quinn, an ass from California. She spends so much time worrying about her "image" to those in her community when really, she just gives it up so easily. Quinn was arrogant and I just could not like him at all. I felt so let down by this book. When I read the description, it seemed like I was in for a cute little read. It wasn't. The way Dixie Rose spoke, seems like an insult to southerners. I happen to know quite a few southern ladies who would NEVER speak like that. It was over the top. I'm sorry, but to enjoy a book, I have to at least like the characters a little. This just didn't do it for me.
