The kitchen: it’s my domain, where I create the best burgers in the Midwest. I’m the man behind the grill at Burgers and Brew, the restaurant and bar I co-own with my best friends. Every night, we’re packed, the demand has never been this high. It’s the only way I want it, thriving and pushing myself to be the very best.
Then she started her new business across the street from mine.
The one woman who always got under my skin, who pushed me to be better. Lyndee was my biggest rival in school and my biggest regret.
Now, she’s in town, and as much as I try, I just can’t stay away.
I want her.
A new start: that’s what Stewart Grove means for me and my brother. He’s the one who pushed me to take the chance on opening my own bakery. I am ready for the long hours, the grueling schedule, and the hard work it will take to be successful.
I wasn’t at all prepared to come face-to-face with the man across the street.
An almost kiss in college with the world’s most infuriating man has haunted me for the last decade. Now Jasper’s here, and I don’t think I can resist him.
Things are about to heat up in and out of the kitchen.
I just pray I don’t get burned.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars

Don’t Go Away Mad was a pure delight! I absolutely loved the rivalry between Jasper and Lyndee. She’s a baker, he’s a chef, they almost shared a kiss in culinary school, and now their eateries are across the street from one another… and the sparks fly!

Jasper is totally a by-the-book kind of guy. Lyndee is much more laid-back, and she knows how to push all his buttons and get Jasper all riled up. Their relationship is a wonderful slow burn, and full of so much heat and sizzle… I couldn’t wait for them to get together, and was rooting for them chapter after chapter!

The chemistry and witty banter between Jasper and Lyndee had me in stitches, but I also adored the awesome relationship between Jasper and the guys.

This book is the second in the series, and I didn’t feel like I was missing pieces of the story. I will be going back to read the first book, and will definitely keep my eyes out for the next two!

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
