When Alexis " Lexi" Moreau caught her husband, Jeff, sampling the sous-chef' s more intimate wares in their New York restaurant, she ran-- all the way back to her hometown of St. Helena, California. Six months later, Lexi has no husband and no restaurant. But she does have a three-step plan: First, convert her grandmother' s bakery into her dream bistro. Second, ignore Grandma' s matchmaking attempts. And third, avoid Marco DeLuca, her ex' s commitment-phobic, distractingly sexy best friend. In school Lexi was off-limits for Marco. After all, she was his buddy' s girl. But she' s still as smart and as gorgeous-- and apparently as immune to his charms-- as she used to be. Yet the simple fake romance they agree upon to dodge Lexi' s grandmother' s matchmaking plans soon turns deliciously complicated. And the sultry summer might bring together all the right ingredients for Marco to win the only woman he' s ever wanted.
