This laugh-out-loud romantic comedy proves that, when enemies become lovers, all bets are off!

Jessa Gibson may be new in the little town of Granite, Texas, but in no time at all her gourmet food truck business is booming. Soon she'll have enough money to open the restaurant of her dreams. But first, she'll have to appease the hot local health inspector, no matter how strange his "violations" sound to her. No pink plastic gloves? Really?

Max Hager isn't exactly who he says he is. Pretending to be a health inspector is a (mostly) innocent mistake. A mistake made way worse by Max's immediate, electrifying attraction to the curvy, sexy, redheaded chef. Throw in a whole lot of lust, and things in Jessa's little kitchen are about to really start heating up. But can Max find a way to come clean with Jessa before his little deception turns into a recipe for disaster?

 

Sweet, steamy … and fake? *sigh* I’m so conflicted about this book! With the third book in her Perfect Fit series, Alison Bliss brings us Max’s story … a fan favorite from previously in the series. This has been a great series overall … funny, sassy, flirty and oh so sexy … but this book just didn’t hit me the same way as the first two. I adore Max, and I loved Jessa almost from the moment we met her too, but with the major lie hanging over their head, I couldn’t connect with them as a couple like I did Sam and Leah in book one and Valerie and Logan in book two. I wanted to love Max’s book … but unfortunately, it let me down. Don’t get me wrong, I liked it … it has some really down-to-earth characters and life journeys and the sass and laughter is still there … but I didn’t love it like I did the first two. It’s still worth a read, and the ending was an interesting twist that we weren’t expecting for sure … but if this is the first you’re reading in the series, I’d advise you to go grab Size Matters and On The Plus Side to round out your love of the characters as a whole.

New to Granite, Texas, Jessa Gibson’s gourmet food truck business is booming and she’s never been happier! She just knows that this is the town where she’s going to make her drams of opening her own restaurant a reality, so the thriving food truck business is going to get here there quicker than she ever dreamed. The studly new health inspector seems to be coming up with strange violations on her though … is she going to be able to keep her eyes off of his hot body long enough to fix the problems he’s addressing … even if they do seem crazy?

Electrician Max Hager starts off trying to help out a friend by pretending to be the health inspector and pestering Jessa to get her to move her location. His not quite innocent intent snowballs and before he knows it, he’s spending every day stopping by the truck pretending to be the guy … and falling head over heals for the girl in the process! Instead of coming clean, he lets the lie ride out way too long until eventually it comes crashing down around him. Will she care enough about the guy at that point to listen to his reasoning or will she send the no good liar on his way once and for all?
