This story is about Owen, CEO and proclaimed donut king and right now business for him isn’t doing so good. He is pushed into getting a focus group together to find out why things aren’t so good in his business. In his focus group, he comes upon the sweet and sexy aspiring actress Olive Cumming. He sees something happen with her and his donuts and folks, it was written in stone at that point-- All he knows is he wants her for more than just his focus group. He wants her in his bed, and more. Its insta-lust, love , attraction, heat all rolled up into one. Olive finds herself out of her waitressing job and she took the focus job to help pay her rent. Next thing she knows , Owen CEO sweeps in and hires sweet Olive to be his assistant. She can’t believe what just happened but she doesn’t look a gift horse in the mouth. The heat and chemistry between this is phenomenal—but there is someone is waiting in the shadows to make sure they aren’t together and keep this awesome couple apart.
Owen is this wonderful alpha donut kingmaker, he finds his Queen and that’s it. No messing around and he is determined to do what it takes to make her his as soon as possible, and woe to whomever stands in his way. What is fantastic is how Olive goes about changing Owen and for the better. Before there was this coldness, this hardness to him and Olive comes in and sets about changing his outlook for the better and in doing so, changes his company where before there were creditors, and with his new outlook, he is reaching his goal and saving his company and exceeding things—so before Olive, there was no hope and now with Olive, he has hope. Oh this story has twists and turns and there are those determined to keep him down and ruin him and Olive but Mr Donut King doesn’t let that happen. The ending is delicious and the HEA is full of heat and heart. What a great love story that is Cinderella-esqe in style which is great but with a twist that has a full figure heroine and an alpha male –perfect!
