On The Line (Milwaukee Dragons #1) - Liz Lincoln

Carrie is a recently unemployed middle school, science teacher. Seth is a defensive lineman for the Milwaukee Dragons football team and a single dad of a teenage daughter, Madison. Seth was just recently traded and had to move away from his family who usually helped him out with Madison.

The initial meeting between Carrie Heron and Seth Chamberlain was priceless. Such a funny, laugh out loud meeting. While in the grocery store, the chemistry between these two is just off the charts.
They exchange phone numbers in case Seth has more questions regarding his daughter and this starts their fun texting back and forth. Having been a single dad most of his daughter's life, Seth generally doesn't bring woman around, but something about Carrie has Seth wanted to have an actual relationship.

Carrie's brother, Jason works for the Milwaukee Dragons and he knows of a nanny job that is looking for someone to live at the football player's house and take care of his teenage daughter. Unable to find a teaching job, Carrie decides to apply for the nanny job. Imagine her surprise when the football player is Seth! Knowing they both need the help of the other, Carrie and Seth decide they cannot pursue any type of relationship except an employer/employee one. That is when the fun begins! These two have a very hard time keeping things platonic between them. It was fun watching the build up between these two.

I loved how Carrie got along so well with Madison. They had so many fun things in common together and it was a great addition to the overall story. I really enjoyed the road Carrie and Seth went on to get to their happy ending. This was a fun, sexy story that I would highly recommend.

Rules
On The Line (Milwaukee Dragons #1) - Liz Lincoln

Seth has a lot on his plate.  Moved to a new town (well, traded anyway,) has a daughter who is miserable, trying to get to know his new team, and needs a nanny.  All of this can make a man miserable.

 

Carrie needs a job.  If she doesn't find one soon it's going to get ugly.  Little does she know, the man who swoops in and makes everything better, is the man she needs space from.  How can she flirt with the sexy man when she finds out he's her new boss?

 

Heat right from the very start, and gets hotter as you read more.  This series just takes off in flames as the hot MC's spark and sizzle every time they are within touching distance of one another.  Despite very real conflict, and an original plot, this story is exciting and hot!  I give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

[Gertrude Stein] thinks Fitzgerald will be read when many of his well known contemporaries are forgotten.
Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City - Matthew Desmond

After hearing for the last few years that it took a WWII book program to bring The Great Gatsby into fashion, I think it's pretty awesome that Stein saw Fitzgerald's brilliance back in 1933.

Good People Good Food and A Sweet Story
The Coincidence of Coconut Cake - Amy E. Reichert

A wonderful and hard ride with a restauranteur chef and her relationships.
First thing, you have to make the cake at the end of the book. It is decadent, in all the right ways a cake should be and trust me you’ll be craving it among other foods at the end of this read. *Don’t read on an empty stomach.*
Lou is a young chef owner of a small restaurant in Milwaukee. Her business is finally coming out of the red and hopes are high for a successful future. She is engaged to a very successful man and works with two fantastic friends, everything is good. No, not really. Her fiancé’ is not what she has lead her heart to believe, her present happiness is also not exactly what her heart dreamed of. Then when a what should have been a fabulous day crashes and burns her happiness bubble everything changes. Changes, hurt and scar but they are not always bad, even extremely painful ones.
Al, is an unhappy Englishman stuck working in this, what he considers a nowhere city writing restaurant reviews. He hates living there and only thinks about the day he gets another job someplace else. While standing in line for coffee one day he smells the most wonderful scents and they are attached to a very attractive woman. She smells of bacon, coconut cake and vanilla and he is drawn to her. She tells him about her fiancé' and the cake she made him then goes about her day. They meet again, talk and he challenges her to prove her city is wonderful. They begin to explore and get to know each other. Later on he is instrumental in undoing her life’s dream and he doesn’t even know it.
Lou takes on the challenge of showing Al how wonderful Milwaukee is. Her life is crumbling down around her but she doesn’t pass the pain on, she lives and feels joy in the simple things. He finds himself starting to see the uniqueness in the city and develop feelings for this woman. Unfortunately, there are several secrets between them that will blow up and hurt deep.
What a lovely sweet romance, between the main couple and a few side characters. I loved the pacing, we got to know these people and their back stories. Good people, great histories, fabulous friendships.The couples exploration of the city, it’s festivals and cultural events had me wanting to visit the city. The food, was incredible, I think I dreamed of several of the goodies mentioned. I enjoyed every page, and will jump on the chance to read this authors future works.

 

Yes I made the cake, here is the finished product and one of my dogs peeking
