Four-Leaf Clover by Charmaine Ross
A sexy, sugar-laden David vs Goliath story about a local bakery, a national chain, and what really matters.
Clover Loveday has worked hard to get her café Four-Leaf Clover up and running — her ticket out of an increasingly alarming financial situation and her dream come true. When she literally falls off her ladder into the arms of sexy-as-sin Liam Sinclair. The same Liam Sinclair who owns the new bakery being built just across the road...the new store by bakery chain Upper Crust owner! Clover decides then that no matter how nauseated she is about the idea, it is best keep your enemies close, rather than leave things to fate.
Liam has never put too much thought into the competition when he opens a new outlet, other than taking their customers and strengthening the Upper Crust brand. But here in the beautiful Dandenong Ranges, Clover Loveday’s cafe is a little too close for comfort, and Clover herself a little too good-looking. So Liam asks his PA to put together a ’fact sheet’ about his new competition. He has a business to run, a father to please, and hundreds of people to keep in jobs. Surely information can keep an unwanted strong sexual pull at bay...
A sweet, caffeinated, satisfying story about unexpected temptations, forgiveness, and putting love before money.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I thought this was a delightful story! I was engrossed and couldn't put it down. For being set outside of the US, I wasn't caught up in any slang, and it was well written. The story flows easily. Each character is developed and I fell in love with them. Clover seems the type of woman I'd be friends with and Liam, well, hot damn, he's just about as sexy as they come. If you want a sexy, real heart warming story, pick this up! It's so good and worth it!
