I was provided with an advance reader copy by the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Any and all opinions expressed in this review are mine alone. I received no financial incentives to review this book. This is the second story in the Madewood Brothers series, about four foster brothers. Four foster brothers struggle to break free of their shadowy pasts while cooking their way into the hearts of the women they love….
The eldest, the first of the brothers to come under the protective wings of Vivian Madewood. Well, a watered-down version of how she felt, but they knew there was something there. This was a celebrity sighting for Cathy.
Cole and his brothers were infamous back home in Toronto and more than occasionally headlined the newspapers and gossip sites. Their mother, a do-gooder socialite, had adopted them, and by association, they'd been thrust into the limelight, which she knew Cole despised. Just then, two little whirlwinds broke through the crowd of adults, bubbling with excitement, though one stayed a few paces back from Cole.
Her nephew was as shy as her niece was outgoing. Sara tugged on Cole's shirt.

When Penn glanced up at Cole, she expected to see terror on his face, but instead she saw an expression that was all too rare. It lit up his entire face. His cheeks flushed, and she knew if he didn't have his sunglasses on, his eyes would be sparkling in the sunlight. Andy's shyness didn't last long. The moment Sara touched Cole, Andy raced over.
I like to play with Legos. Maybe we can build a castle or a fortress. Penn smiled, unable to contain her own joy. Despite unleashing the crazy that was the Foster clan, she had inadvertently made him happy.

And in the end, that's all she'd ever wanted for him. He deserved happiness in his life. Something that, over the last three years, she'd watched him struggle to find but never quite keep. Cole was the most negative person she'd ever encountered. Considering his upbringing in the foster care system, it was warranted, but for the last three years she'd been trying her damnedest to get him out of this life-long funk, this cloud of pessimism she'd bet he'd had since childhood.

If the Boys and Girls Club didn't work out, he'd be devastated. Which was why she was going to do everything in her power to make it a success. As the marketing and publicity director for the Madewood Empire, it was her job. As Cole's friend, it was her duty. A spot on the board of directors for the Vivian Madewood Foundation was now vacant, and it was the perfect opportunity to take her career to the next level. Cole's late foster mother's best friend, Gloria, had relinquished her position, and Penn was the perfect replacement.
She had every intention of rocking the Madewood boys' socks off and lobbying for it once the club was up and running. Cole looked down at Sara with a warm smile. Penn's heart clenched in happiness at the soft expression. Her sisters-in-law were right.
But maybe she could get her father to change the rules. For once, give her a chance to win. Before she had time to look over at Cole and gauge his reaction to that question, Ian changed the subject. The Sergeant was the nickname her brothers had given their father when they were kids. He knew nothing about it, of course. Ian herded the family away, and they followed behind, a twinge of revenge settling in Penn's stomach.

Oh, yeah. She'd seen Cole in action many times: hockey, baseball, his smoking body on a treadmill. She knew he'd wipe them all off the map. And since he was already here and willing, she had to do whatever it took to get him on her team. Her heart leaped. But this man walking beside her had somehow shown up when she'd least expected it, but needed him the most.
She pulled him to a stop and hugged him. He was stiff at first, and she should have known better than to show any sign of affection, but she just couldn't help herself. He might have just sealed the deal for her to win her first Foster Cup. The longer she held him tight, the more relaxed his body became. He even swept his arms up and wrapped them around her before settling at her lower back. He laughed, and in an unusual show of affection, rested his arm over her shoulders, then pulled her into his body.
With a laugh, he said, "Watching you squirm for an entire week is going to be entertaining. Unwilling to give her up, Jack makes Sterling an offer she can't refuse—for four sexy weekends, he'll indulge her most wicked fantasies with no professional strings attached. But will mixing business with pleasure spell disaster? Or will they find the recipe for satisfaction?
