From New York Times bestselling author Aurora Rose Reynolds comes the second book in the steamy, witty, and hilarious How to Catch an Alpha series.
Chrissie doesn’t have time for guys, hot or otherwise; most days, she barely has time to sleep. With a thriving bakery that demands her attention and plenty of proof that relationships aren’t worth the trouble, she’s content to go it alone. Too bad she’s unwittingly baited Mr. Tall, Dark, and Way Too Gorgeous—and he’s just waiting for a chance to bite.
Gaston is used to getting what he wants, but he also knows nothing good ever comes easy. From the moment he meets Chrissie, he realizes that this woman who makes him laugh, smells like cupcakes, and looks like a tasty snack is going to be his greatest challenge. And if he’s lucky, she’ll be his biggest reward.
But someone else wants to catch Gaston at all costs—even if it means endangering the lives of the people he loves. Somehow Gaston must thwart danger and convince Chrissie that he’s the perfect catch.

I enjoyed reading Chrissie and Gaston’s journey (you read me right me, that’s the hero’s name), from insta-attraction to winning the girl over and somehow feeling pretty realistic and down to earth about the main characters’ lives, professionally and personally. I appreciated it.
Gaston was definitely book boyfriend material, confident, sexy and so swoony. What he wanted was to get the woman who stole his every thought since he met her. Running a successful business and being busy didn’t bother him until he found the one. He was such as sweet as smoking hot and not giving a damn about what people think, going with his guts.
Chrissie was also busy with her bakery, giving no time to meet someone, until she stumbled into Gaston, who wasn’t giving up by showing her how they felt good together. I liked this character. She was down to earth, trying to fight this attraction but hopeless when it came to this determined man.
However, it was a good story, with endearing characters, so swoony and a little cheesy at times.
I appreciated the flirty banter and humour as well. I liked this second installment of this series!
