Having your cake and eating it too is something everyone on the planet wants in life. For some, it is the happy family with two monsters for kids that no matter what happens, they can do no wrong, some it is fame on the big screen, being stalked by paparazzi and others, it is to travel the world seeing all that mother nature has to offer. Gag me with an overstuffed pillow. Don’t get me wrong, I wanted it all, but my vision of happiness is the dream job, the dream car, the awesome apartment and a plate of bacon all to myself. The only thing I didn’t want was a man. In my experience, men only cloud your judgment and replace your dreams with theirs.
Things were going according to plan until fate, karma, destiny, fortune or whatever you want to call it stepped in and said “Oh wait, no, I don’t think so.” and took it all from me.
For now I’m stuck mooching off my best friend and working desperately trying to figure out a way to get it all back. That is until fate slaps a Jesse in my face. But let me start from the beginning. So grab a plate of Bacon or your favorite snack and let me tell you all about it.

I absolutely loved book one in this series and was glad to be able to take part in this tour. You don’t need to have read Sasha (book 1) as they are pretty good as stand alone books but I do suggest you read it – it was great/
This book is just as good. We meet Kelly, who has been out of a job after her job as a social worker was temporarily put on hold due to budget constraints and she is still waiting on returning. As time goes on it doesn’t seem likely that it will happen any time soon so she is having to stay with her best friend, and is working at a waitress.
Jess is a police office with the K9 unit and is your sexy alpha male. He rescues Kelly from a disastrous first date leaving her wanting to see him again but never actually calling him. In a funn to read situation they cross paths again.
This a great quick read, full of funny moments with a hint of mystery added in for good measure.

Rae Matthews is a Minneapolis, Minnesota native who moved to La Crosse, Wisconsin in 2002 for a guy, of all things. There she started off as a bartender at a neighborhood bar, eventually moving into telecommunications. Years later she is now a wife and a wicked stepmother. It’s a good thing she is a good cook, or they may have tossed her out on her tushy years ago.
Rae is also known for being a bit of a goofball. She loves to see people smile, and doesn’t mind if they are smiling and even laughing at her, not with her. Her motto is, “Life is too short to not laugh as much as you can.”
Over the years Rae regaled her friends with her stories for years, and she loves to tell them, even if her friends didn’t want to hear them. But now she is finally ready to share her stories with others.
As time goes by, Rae hopes to find more time to travel and take on new challenges while continuing her joy of telling stories, crafting, cooking and generally just having fun.
