Review: Love and Pancakes by Lacey Black

Author: Lacey Black

Date of publication: January 2019

Marissa Grayson’s dream went up in smoke. A devastating fire has ripped apart her family’s bed and breakfast, leaving her off-kilter and scrambling to repair the damage. What she doesn’t need, or have time for, is Rhenn Burleski. Sexy, confident, and dangerous to her heart. A man who clearly knows his way around the female body and will leave the moment the sheets start to cool. Yet that doesn’t stop her from making a deal with the devil himself.

Work hard, play harder. That’s Rhenn’s life motto. An electrician by day, Rhenn turns it up at night, always with a different lady friend in tow. He makes sure they know the score: he’s not looking for anything more than one night of fun. However, he knows the second he meets the shy daughter of the bed and breakfast’s owner that his life is never going to be the same. As hard as he tries, he just can’t resist one taste.

What happens when their time is up and Rhenn must leave, returning to his old life? Will they be able to walk away, hearts unscathed, or will their time together prove to be nothing more than a fading memory?

Love and Pancakes is the first book in the Rockland Falls series.  This is Marissa and Rhenn story.  Marissa's life goes up in smoke when her family's bed and breakfast  has a fire.  Rhenn is hired to do all of the new wiring for the rebuild.  I thought this was a really cute love story. Both Rhenn and Marissa are relationship shy having dated cheaters in the past.  I loved how Rhenn made Marissa feel like she was the only woman in the room.  She had always lived in her sister's shadow and her confidence wasn't too high at first.  These two were made for each other.

The book was well written with fun characters.  The great aunt was really funny and made me laugh out load on multiple occasions.  I think this is a spin off series, but it worked fine as stand alone.  Marissa has 3 other siblings, so I'm sure there are more stories to come out of Rockland Falls.  The next book, Love and Lingerie, comes out soon, so stay tuned!
