|| Ava's skills as a chef took her from private celebrity chef to owner of Miami's hottest new restaurant. Shy since kindergarten, she expressed her passions in the kitchen. Loneliness lowered her shoulders as the accolades faded at closing each night. At thirty-three, she was still single, preferring a crowded kitchen to a man across a small table. Her brother signed her up with Viviana, owner of The Candy Man Delivery Service. She'd been appalled until he showed her the picture of Viviana's man, Adonis. Her anxiety quelled each day by a furious work schedule then ran rampant over her mind as she tried to sleep. Exhausted and shaking, she opens her condo door to find Marcus with caramel colored skin, dark hair, and intense brown eyes. He helps her bloom as she experiences complete devotion for the first time in her life.
