GET YOU GOOD
Get You Good has some characters that the reader will love and hate, which is the sign of a good story. The heroine at times seems driven and unrelenting when it comes to her pastry business, caring for it as one would a child. The hero not only has to overcome her dedication to her business but her unwillingness to trust him despite having known him since childhood.
Sydney Isaacs is not happy with the men in her life. Her father died and willed her passion, the family pastry business, Decadence, to her younger brother Dean. She is determined to raise funds to purchase the business from Dean, a struggling music mogul in the making. When Dean suddenly marries the woman of his dreams and then makes the rash decision to sell the business, Sydney is devastated. Hayden Windsor has retired from the NBA and moved back to his hometown of Toronto determined to win Sydney’s heart despite her many attempts to sabotage their relationship. He shows the depth of his love by purchasing a special property for her to rebuild Decadence. When Sydney finds out Hayden’s relationship with Dean’s wife, the person she blames for losing her business and causing the rift between her and her brother, she is determined to end their relationship. She almost succeeds when Hayden learns of the depth of her deception in trying to get back at Dean’s wife. (DAFINA, Apr., 336 pp., $14.00)
