Dueling neighbors, baby fever, fake boyfriends, and pizza… Life in Bliss has never been better!
Pepper Blue wants a baby. Forget the husband. She’s better at training men to be good husbands for other women than she is at getting one herself, so she’s doing this on her own.
But she hasn’t exactly shared the news with her family, and they’re determined to find her a date to the next family wedding. A date that won’t leave with one of her sisters or cousins. This time.
Which means Pepper Blue needs a fake boyfriend. A fake boyfriend that she has no chance of actually falling in love with. A fake boyfriend like her obnoxious neighbor.
Tony Cross is a pizza god with a sausage problem. He’s putting on a good show—a different woman at his house every night, flirting with all the right customers, flexing his muscles when called upon—but since his divorce, his meat has been more on the undercooked side. If you know what he means.
Except, unfortunately, when it comes to his annoyingly perfect, always put together, too good for him neighbor. Pepper Blue. Who is not a viable candidate for fixing his “little problem.”
So he’s not sure why he’s coming to her rescue, pretending to be her boyfriend to save her from a bad date at his pizza joint. He just knows it’s fun. And it irritates her. And it turns out, she might be able to help his flagging pizza sales as much as she’s helping his flagging… you know.
So long as this is just business, he’s happy to keep pushing her buttons.
All night long, if he has to.

The title definitely defines the book. The flavors of the twists and turns kept my attention along with the hot and spicy scenes.
This book definitely touched on several personal subjects for my husband and my relationship.
I did appreciate the introduction list of characters. I'm not knew to the Bliss scene, but loved the refresher and for the friends I've recommended to catch up.
I was told by my husband Gerald to make sure and not suggest reading this in bed unless you're alone. My laughter woke him up more then once.
Thank Jamie Farrell for yet another fun read. My emotions are still wrapping my head and heart around all the "aw's and NO!'s
A Heartfelt Romance!
This is the story of a woman who is smart and successful in all aspects of her life but can't have the one thing she wants the most and, it's not a man. Pepper's story really hit home for me because I have been her at one point in my life. The way the author handled the subject matter was spot on. This was the first story I have read that has actually gotten the feelings right when it comes to infertility. That made this story very special to me. Pepper and Tony's story is beautiful, heartbreaking and at points even funny and the ending was FANTASTIC!
Jamie Farrell has done it again! Spiced is a must read for romance lovers that appreciate a bit of humor in their books. Ms. Farrell has delivered a well-written book and populated it with characters we know and love from previous books. Pepper is a business owner and wants a baby enough to go through IVF to get it. Tony is her neighbor and the owner of a pizza shop. Their story is packed with humor that will have you laughing out loud, drama and you can't have a romance without a bit of spice. This book hooked me at the first page and held me hostage till the end. I loved reading Spiced and look forward to my next book by Jamie Farrell. Spiced is book 6 of The Misfit Bride Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.
I voluntairily read an advance reader copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
