Pastry chef Livvy knows that giving in to the temptation that is John Murphy won't lead to anything permanent, but she deserves a passionate summer fling.

John just moved into a new home. He's an Author of a very popular Young Adult fantasy series, but the monsters in the book aren't the only monsters John has. His past continues to haunt him every day, and he has to deal with the struggles his step father pounded into him daily when he was younger.

Olivia (aka Livy) lives with her sister Andrea. Andrea is getting married to Tow, so Livy tried to make things easier on her sister by giving her free room and board to help save money.
She would never let her sister know just how tight money is at work. Livy owns the "Sweet Shop". A bakery that she puts a lot of hard work into. Sure she has her regular customers, and works a few birthday parties and weddings, but she is far from financially happy.

When John sitting in his back yard, a bra blows over to him. He snags it up and wonders where it's from. Peeking at the neighbors yard, he likes the rest of the clothes he found on the line.
Shoving them in his pocked he heads next door to introduce himself.

And when he meets the new neighbors, the spark between him and Livy is really thick. They can't keep their eyes off each other. But Livy is stronger. She can sense that John isn't the long term relationship type of guy, and Livy is only looking for love, not fun.

That night is the neighborhood 4th of July potluck held at Livy's house. John is invited to meet the neighbors and have fun. Livy does her best to ignore him. but soon realizes that the more she ignores him, the sooner he's going to have his way with her. It was impossible to ignore the pull.

And John wasn't any exception. He was a total flirt, and wanted to see where things went with Livy. Rather it was a day, a week, a month. But he knew getting too close would be a bad thing.
When he cornered her in the kitchen and had his way with her mouth, she couldn't help but fantasize what it would be like to spend a day, a week, a month with him..
But was she willing to risk her heart.

Getting to know these two was a lot of fun. The ghosts in John's past were spooky though. He had a lot to deal with, STILL has a lot to deal with. But his sister Gina was able to move on with her life, so John should be able to move on with his.. right?

The passion between these two, and the Sweets from the Shop! YOUCH! Sweet as Sin!
