A taste for something sexy…Roma Denata prefers spending her time inventing new flavors at her gelato shop and scratching her sexual itch on the run. Unfortunately, her annoying new landlord is a rash that won’t go away, no matter how often they take their clashes to an unexpected level. And more than her Italian temper reaches the boiling point.
A temporary return to his hometown forces Lucas Calloway to rethink his reasons for avoiding emotional ties. His tenant makes him want more than a daily dose of sleeping with the enemy, and revealing his own disturbing secret is the perfect way to convince her to share hers.
Guilt has destroyed Roma’s appetite for love and trust seems beyond her ability—even when Lucas’s revelation uncovers a common bond. Melting her heart is a challenge he must accept, but the collateral damage inflicted from events of the past may be too much to overcome.

Normally, I’m not a fan of conflict-through-a-series-of-misunderstandings stories. This story gives the early impression that it’s one of those, but eventually we find out the misunderstandings are not the conflict. Not by a long shot .
The heroine is as messed-up as they come due to past trauma. She has anxiety attacks that are perfectly justifiable from this trauma. She’s also quick to assume and has a temper that only a fellow Italian can identify with. In other words, I totally get her. 🙂
The hero has his own demons and past trauma to deal with. He hides this behind a bad boy persona and a history of no-strings-attached flings. But when he realizes he’s made a mistake, he’s quick to own up to it. Or rather, he would be quick to own up to it if the heroine would let him have his say-so without throwing things at him.
Both of them are hot-tempered and trying to solve their issues with sex instead of conversation. Afterward, they leave (aka run away) and it’s frustrating as hell watching them. However, as the story progresses, their journey becomes satisfying and rich because they are such complex and interesting characters.
I love this entire series, and this addition to it doesn’t disappoint. I don’t like to give spoilers in reviews, but stick with this one because the resolution of the conflict, and the ensuing romance, are well worth it.
