Layla Dupree has given up on love.
She’s waded through all of the fish in the sea, each one more disappointing than the last. Apparently owning the bakery at Inglewild’s most romantic destination does not help one’s love life—despite her best efforts. All she wants is a partner who gives her butterflies, not someone who ghosts her at dinner and leaves her with the check.
Good thing Caleb Alvarez has the perfect solution.
After saving Layla from another date gone bad, he has a simple proposition: One month of no-strings dating. He’ll do his best to renew her faith in men while she rates his dating game. It’s a win-win situation. All the benefits of dating, without the added pressure of feelings and unmet expectations.
But there’s one ingredient they haven’t considered. The chemistry between them is red hot and the urge to take things to the next level is more tempting than Layla’s double fudge mocha brownies.
Will the heat between them boil over? Or will it be another case of mixed signals?
Mixed Signals is a sweet story filled with a confection of delicious ingredients, my favorite being fake dating. Plus, added bonus a book boyfriend who is invested in empowering our MC Layla Dupree, helping her realize she is enough and worth loving.
Give me a book that features food (especially mouth watering baked goods), a partner who respects boundaries and makes the MC feel safe and cherished at the same time, I am all in.
My only stumbling with this one was the conflict between Layla and Caleb towards the end. As we get closer to when the “fake dating” ends, I was trying to wrap my brain around what was going to tear these two apart. I’ll let you experience it for yourself, but for me I didn’t completely buy it.
I haven’t read the other two books in this series, but being they’re standalones, it makes it easy to slip into the first two stories without feeling guilty. 😅
Happy Reading ~ Cece
