{Romance Minute Review} Come and Get it (The Bonifay Family #1) by Keira Cole

Come and Get it
Sexy Dixie Rose Bonifay has sunk her roots deep in the Texas hill country she calls home. Having dedicated her life to the one thing she loves most—cooking—she’s built her own successful mobile food business catering to the construction workers in the area, and she’s stirring up the appetite of every man around, in more ways than one.

When smug California architect Quin Halladay comes to town, he sets his sights on Dixie’s ranchland—and on Dixie herself. Confident and charming, he can’t wait to bed the alluring Dixie and add yet another notch to his bedpost. What Quin doesn’t realize is that Dixie can match wits with him every step of the way, and before Quin knows it the Texas beauty has turned the tables on him and he can’t get her out of his head.

As the two get down to business in a romantic Texas two-step, it’s a battle of wills and wits between small-town smarts and big-city arrogance. And with all the local men circling their wagons to protect the woman they’ve come to love and respect, Quin will have to prove himself and choose between the city life he knows and the Texas rose he’s come to love.

{Rating} 2/5 - I didn't like it.

"Dixie Rose Bonifay hadn't been born in Texas." (page 1, line 1)
Come and Get It just wasn't for me. I never got attached to the characters, there was very little in the way of character development - there was just lots and lots of sex. And the end? Dixie just lets him off the hook? Quin needed to grovel and beg and grovel some more. The HEA was too easy, and as such, not rewarding. On the positive side though I did like the strong family and community connections Dixie had.
