Sex, Lies & Mistletoe by Tawny Weber
* I received this ARC free from the author in exchange for an honest review*

Undercover DEA agent Caleb Black is home for the holidays—possibly to bust his own father. But maybe Caleb’s con-man dad isn’t the one running drugs through the small town of Black Oak. Maybe it’s the green-eyed goddess who runs the New Age shop and has Caleb under her sultry spell.

Pandora Easton saved the family store with two words: sex sells. And her delectable aphrodisiacs really work, as she’s proven with notorious bad boy Caleb again and again and again.

Little does she guess that, in the end, her most potent potion will be the truth….

Caleb is going to return home for the holidays to investigate a drug ring in Black Oak and clear his father of any involvement.  His father is a career con man but appears to have gone legal with the motorcycle shop he now owns.  Caleb is tired of the endless stakeouts and undercover work and is ready for something new in his life; he never thought he’d find it in Black Oak.

When things go bad with her ex-boyfriend, Pandora uses the opportunity to come home to help her mom out.  While trying to figure out how to save their family shop, Moonspun Dreams, she comes across her grandmother’s old recipe book.  With the added café specializing in eatable aphrodisiacs, she may be able to turn the shop around.  She isn’t looking for love but she can’t help but notice when bad boy Caleb walks into her shop.

When Pandora challenges Caleb to resist her meal full of aphrodisiacs, he can’t resist.  There is something about this attractive woman that draws him in.  Not only is she a great cook but she is sexier than hell and a lot of fun to be around.  He enjoys her company and wants to spend more time with her.  He is shocked when Hunter suggests that Pandora’s shop is involved in the drug ring in town.  Now, not only does he have to prove his dad’s innocence but also the woman he is falling for.

I really liked this story.  Pandora is a real woman with real problems.  She is curvy and sexy, while being down to earth and fun to be around.  She has had bad luck with men in the past and she is leery to put her heart on the line with Caleb.  She is attracted to him and finds it gets harder and harder to walk away from him.

Caleb is sexy as hell.  He grew up in Black Oak and was always known as a trouble maker because of his father.  Growing up, they always had to be ready to pick up and move at the drop of a hat, now he is ready for stability.  During the holidays, he is taking a break from his job with the DEA because he is tired of always being undercover and wants to do something different with his life.

My favorite scenes involved the sexy foods that Pandora specializes in.  The scene in the shop and the scene at her home were extremely HOT!!!  The story was interesting with a subplot of intrigue.  The characters were fun and interesting without being overbearing.

I enjoyed the first story in this trilogy and am looking forward to reading the other two.  I give Sex, Lies & Mistletoe 4 Flaming Hearts.
