Running in fear of his matchmaking mama, Derek Forrester runs right in the arms of Peggy and a lie about their engagement. Less than impressed, Peg succumbs to his kisses and is ready to do whatever he asks right? She’s a tattoo wearing coffee cart business woman and doesn’t have time for this silly business, but Derek isn’t joking once he has had a taste.

I loved this quick romp into the world of food trucks and coffee carts. Peg is a hard working woman with a dream. She talks to the customers and picks just the right drinks for them, but she isn’t your high society type that Derek’s momma is looking to entice. I loved Peg’s feisty take no prisoners attitude. Derek can’t stand up to his mom, but when it comes to letting Peg go, he won’t let go.

The story is fast and quickly over, but the hero and heroine meshed well after a rocky start. Polar opposites helped for once with this.

I loved seeing a few characters from past books and learning more about a few we might see in the future. The Cupcake Cowboy makes his appearance along with the Sticky Cowgirl. All my favorites. Can I try some of these sweets these people are making?

About Lissa Matthews

Living in North Carolina, talented, multi-published author, Lissa Matthews, has many loves in her life: Family, friends, NASCAR, football, music of all kinds, cooking, BDSM, and last, but not least, coffee. She loves it so much she and those who know her are surprised she hasn’t floated away on a caffeine-induced cloud while giving life to feisty heroines and hunky heroes.

Lissa’s love of romance came from every book she has ever picked up. No matter what she read, she fell in love with the written word. The promise of escape, the deep, intriguing characters, and the winding journey from beginning to end, constantly drew her into bookstores and libraries as she was growing up.

Her first stories were written in junior high and she kept it up through college. She would stay up late at night when her kids were little reading romance and still penning her own stories. In 2007, when she and her family moved to North Carolina from Florida, she began pursuing writing as a profession and she couldn’t imagine doing anything else… Well, except maybe writing in her own cupcake bakery/coffee shop. But that dream is a ways down the road… Lucky for Lissa, she believes in dreams coming true.

Lissa is married with two children and seven, yes, seven cats. She blames her oldest child for the cats.

It’s a cute series based on food trucks, but not the normal food trucks. I love it.

This sounds like a fun one! Peg sounds like a great main character. And it’s based on food trucks and coffee carts, that sounds original. Great review!
