Amazon Kindle and B&N Nook this week -- guaranteed through Saturday, March 9th, but I don't know if it'll last beyond that. (This is a special 75% off promotion!)
For anyone who may not be familiar with the premise, here's the story:
Nothing tops the sweetness of an unexpected love...
uncle Siegfried and Rob's uncle Pauly rush off to Europe for a month, they
temporarily relinquish the reins of their ice cream shop to their respective
niece and nephew -- two people who may have grown up practically next door to
each other but who have next to nothing in common.
Don't Call Me Lizzy" Daniels is a small-town Wisconsin girl at heart. Shy and
inexperienced at love, the frizzy-haired dessert cookbook writer still resides
in her quaint hometown of Wilmington Bay, stutters painfully when nervous and is
only comfortable with her laptop and her tiny circle of cooking pals. She must
come out of hiding over the summer to help her uncle, but she's convinced her
childhood crush, Rob, barely knows she exists.
Roberto "You'd Better
Call Me Rob, or Else" Gabinarri is the town's golden boy and former football
star who left home after high school, made a splash in the big city and never
looked back. He has to return to Wilmington Bay to uphold a promise to his
uncle, but he's counting the minutes until he can escape to the relative
anonymity of his fast-paced, commitment-free city life and the sports-themed
restaurant he owns in Chicago. Despite his chattiness and charm, Rob was always
intimidated by quiet, brainy girls like "Frizzy Lizzy," and he isn't pleased to
be back in the place where people like her still see him as that popular but
dumb jock -- an image he worked for almost a decade to shed.
pair tries to make the best of being stuck together, but Elizabeth has a
pressing publication deadline, and Rob has an Italian mother bent on lining up
potential hometown brides for him. Rob comes up with an idea -- something that
might help them both -- but it involves just a bit of family deception. With
time running out to finish her cookbook and her friends already stretched to the
max trying to assist them, Elizabeth reluctantly agrees.
Neither Rob nor
Elizabeth are used to playing games of pretense, but can love, hot summer nights
and, maybe, some chocolate sauce, caramel and whipped cream...turn their farce
"This is a charming tale of the popular jock and the shy bookworm, both trying
to outlive their high school personas and prove to each other there is more to
them than meets the eye. This is truly a root-for-the-underdog, feel-good story
and a joy to read." (LEK) ~ Chicklit Club's Digital Domain, June
"You'll want to read it for the humor and great characters and a
plot that's sure to leave you smiling." ~ Romantic Times Book Reviews,
