Synopsis:  From Good Reads 

Finalist: Goodreads Choice Awards, Best Romance 2016
Make a deal with the devil and you might get what you want, but will it be what you need?

Jennifer Sylvester wants one thing, and that one thing is NOT to be Tennessee’s reigning Banana Cake Queen. Ever the perpetual good girl and obedient daughter, Jennifer is buckling under the weight of her social media celebrity, her mother’s ambitions, and her father’s puritanical mandates. Jennifer is officially desperate. 

And desperate times call for Cletus Winston.
Cletus Winston is a puzzle wrapped in a mystery covered in conundrum sauce, and now he’s in a pickle. Despite being convinced of his own omniscience, extortion by the exalted Banana Cake Queen of Green Valley has taken him completely by surprise. So… what’s a maniacal mastermind to do? 

Likely, the last thing you expect.

Did you like this book?
Leah: I did like this book.  Cletus is my favorite Winston.
Lindsey: I love this book. It’s got a little bit of everything & it’s so clever.  

Who would typically like the book?
Leah: Anyone who loves a slow burn—someone looking for the a-typical romance. 
Lindsey: It’s low steam, meaning the only “sex scene” is in the epilogue and the heroine is a virgin. That makes me think fans of romance who expect something steamier may be disappointed but the story and characters are fascinating and entertaining. 

Would you recommend this book?
: 100% would recommend this book.  Cletus is without a doubt one of my favorite characters ever.
Lindsey: Yes, it’s one of my favorite books.
