This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
As the new owner of the Main Street Diner, chef Gabriella Marcos has taken a huge risk. After being duped by her fiancé and her boss, she invested her entire savings into a place she’s never seen, in a town called Marietta she’s never been to and brought her reluctant teenage daughter along for the adventure. Gabriella is also determined to prove to her overprotective family that she doesn’t need a man to make her life complete. Too bad her sexy new neighbor is impossible to ignore.
Since arriving in Marietta last summer, fireman Kyle Cavasos has enjoyed the anonymity that small town life provides. It’s a far cry from the opulence of Bel Air where he grew up. Here, he can be a Navy vet and a first responder, not the love child who caused a flurry of gossip and tabloid headlines decades ago. Kyle has no intention of getting involved with anyone in Marietta until Gabriella moves in and life gets interesting. Fast.
Despite agreeing to pose for the Marietta Men For All Seasons calendar in order to raise money for Harry's House, Kyle hopes to stay out of the social media chaos, while he gets to know the new girl in town better. But when the calendar goes viral, will it all come crashing down for the both of them?
Burning with Desire
Yule Publishing has another awesome author. Patricia hit this out of the park. This is a mild mature read. Gabby is a chef who is driving from Texas to Montana with a daughter, a deaf cat and an aged Lab. She has bought a diner in Marietta. She is worrying about her daughter and will she be welcomed to the town. Major Spoiler! Kyle is hiding in town with the firehouse/EMT job. He has to give Gabby her keys to the rental house. She is next door and when they meet, Zing!Jason Crowe is a famous man who has a rotten reputation. He is also Kyle's father. Kyle grew up with Patrick working behind the scenes, literally. He has passed now. His mother, also a Hot Shot, wants him to go to one of her resorts in Texas and fix it's problems. It will also help fix Gabby's problems. Major Spoiler! I recommend this book for adults. It is a quick read. You may need tissues. Give this story a chance. Don't let it get away! I volunteered to read and review this book.
Kyle Cavasos is happy in Marietta with no one knowing his true identity. With a deadline looming to take over a family business Kyle puts all his extra time into the town project Harry's House. Gabriella Marcos took her daughter and left her home in Texas to save her families jobs after being threatened by there boss. When next door neighbor Kyle offers to take the new ladies in town to dinner and a tour of the town sparks fly between them.
I loved this book. It was a great end to the series. The main characters were interesting and I found myself wanting them to get there happily ever after.
Love the Men of Marietta
The last installment of the Men of Marietta, has Kyle, firefighter/paramedic as Mr October. Gabriella is new to Marietta, moving from Texas in the winter as the new owner of the Diner. Kyle and Gabriella our neighbors and there is a spark between the two immediately. Gabriella is looking for a new start with her teenage daughter and not looking for love. Kyle has a big secret that needs to share with Gabriella but has not found the perfect time to share, will it be to late once the calendar goes viral.
Loved these characters. Gabriella is a very strong independent lady. How can you not love Kyle, a sexy firefighter/paramedic. Excited for the new diner in Marietta, hopefully will see it again. I'm so sad to see this series end. I highly recommend this book along with the rest of the series.
