In a little Brooklyn coffee shop, love is brewing, in this “romantic story with a dark undertone that pulls on all the right emotions” (USA Today). At Smith’s Sweet Treats and Coffee, you’ll find Brooklyn’s best house blend and the freshest homemade pastries. It’s more than a business to owner Angela Smith. It’s her home and her refuge—one she stands to lose thanks to her gouging landlord. Then, a new regular offers to cover her rent increase if Angela lets him meet his clients there. If Matthew McConnell weren’t such a persuasive lawyer—and so sweet, funny, and sexy—she wouldn’t dream of letting him in. Since leaving a high-paying, soul-sucking legal firm to go solo, Matthew has been striking out, professionally and personally. The best part of his love life is regaling Angela with date-from-hell stories over steaming, fragrant coffee. Behind her captivating smile is a smart, sensual woman he’d love to get close to. And when a painful secret from her past is suddenly exposed, he gets a chance to prove he’s the man she needs, in every way that matters . . .
