“You’re exactly what I never knew I needed.”

“I don’t have time for love.”

Gavin Campbell has poured everything he has into starting up his bakery, Delicious. Its success has given him a sense of security that was sorely lacking in his childhood, and even if working round-the-clock hasn’t left him any time for a personal life, you can’t have it all, right?

“Maybe I just need something delicious in my life.”

Outgoing, successful, and with an ass to die for, Ben Edwards is everything a girl could want… and yet none of his exes have managed to tie him down. He knows the fault isn’t with them, though. No matter how great the girl, Ben just doesn’t seem wired to fall in love.

“I want to be the one who takes care of you.”

When an accident leaves Gavin unable to work, Ben steps in to help, inviting Gavin into his home, his life and, eventually, into his heart. Despite homophobic relatives, a jealous ex-boyfriend, and more sweet temptation than either man was prepared for, they’ll each discover that just because they didn’t know something was missing, doesn’t mean it can’t still be found.

Ben Edwards is just about perfect; he's handsome, successful, straight, has had several long-lasting relationships, but he's never found love with any of his girlfriends. When an accident leaves his new friend, Gavin, unable to work, Ben moves Gavin into his home and in the process, getting more than he ever expected. 

Gavin is a workaholic, intent on making Delicious, his bakery, as successful as it can be, even if he has to sacrifice his personal life in the process. Unable to work due to his broken foot, and forced to rely on Ben for things, they grow closer and every day that passes it's more difficult for him to hide how attracted he is to Ben, especially with as considerate the other man is with him. And even when he comes clean about it, well, nothing would ever come of it, seeing as Ben is straight or would it?

I absolutely adored Ben and Gavin! They were such fantastic characters. They were both reliable, hardworking, supportive and oh so sweet! And despite how much alike they were, they seemed to bring out the best in each other. Their chemistry, their friendship and the way they dealt with the things thrown their way, just made this one of my favorite Sierra Riley books. 

The supporting characters were amazing and I definitely would love to read more in this 'verse. *nudge nudge* The only thing I'd liked was a bit more angst with Ben's father, I think it all got solved too conveniently fast. What can I say? I'm a glutton for angst! 

All in all, a fabulous read, fun, cute, with low angst, that will leave you smiling. 

Rating: 4.5 Stars!!!
