Out the relationship but it wasn t A lot of time was spent on describing the property and even the food that the characters were eating Much than what was spent on their relationship That being said I do like the author s writing and if it wasn t suppose to be a romance I would have thought the book was fine as general fiction I was so captivated by this sweet novella that I read it in one day In the town of Summerville the Summerville Inn now old and dilapidated is to be auctioned off Jim and Genie who had their own separate plans for the inn Signs of War and Peace unexpectedly endp in a business relationship that ickly turns into something I absolutely adored this couple They were playful and complemented each other very well Then there is a sleazeball character who tries to ruin everything for Jim and Genie Even though this is a short story the plot is interesting fast paced and will leave you warm and fuzzy on the inside A definite must read if you re looking for something short and sweet Jim Rawlings a recovering gambler with a hospitality degree and Genie King executive chef extraordinaire want the same thing out of life to buy and renovate the once splendid Summerville Inn Former employees of the place in their youth so okay Jim didn t seem to know Genie existed they join forces their fortunes and eventually their lives to keep the Inn "from becoming a mob run casinoMob rep Tony The Wolf Aiolfo doesn t take well to defeat Add "becoming a mob run casinoMob rep Tony The Wolf Aiolfo doesn t take well to defeat Add corrupt police chief and his conniving wife in Tony s corner no less and Jim and Genie may be in for of a struggle than they bargained forSharon Buchbinder has created hard core characters doing hard core things and she still manages to bring about a charming love story A ick fun read An Inn Decent Proposal was a Sublime Planet uick fun and at times hilarious read with a lot of tongue in cheek humor The bad guy Tony comes across like a caricature of every low life wise guy with a reuisite Jersey accent to match and the Chief of Police is aptly named Richard Head but everyone calls him Dick Jim and Genie have some great chemistry and interesting backstories to move the plot forward Their backstories and the premise of the book were both promising The sultry scenes were not exactly fantasy material For example Jim describes Genie s areoles as being the size of silver dollars and Genie asks if she s too fat for Jim when they re in the heat of the moment Also I got a good chuckle when after the love scene Genie asked if Jim is ready for the cheese course If you want aick read and a few laughs this is perfect What can bring together an nhappy chef and an addicted gambler turned hotel manager together An old rambling inn that they both worked at in their teenage years combined with they both worked at in their teenage years combined with desire to create their own business When they chose to become partners to bid against a mafia thug Genie and Jim didn t realize what types of obstacles would get in their way before they succeeded A nice little story that didn t drag and made me laug.
