Mary Ryan, San Francisco pastry chef, is happy to be teaching at her old alma mater. But before long, she realizes the teaching staff are at loggerheads with each other. Adding to her dismay, ex-lover and Homicide Detective O'Connor has enrolled as a student, claiming to be on disability from the San Francisco Police Department.

In the middle of this turf war, Mary is ordered by dean Robert Benson to force Coolie Martin to leave the school or lose her job. But why would Coolie's father, a member of the Board of Directors, allow this to happen? Then when faculty and staff begin dying, Mary fears Coolie's forced exit might be part of a larger, more sinister plot.

Acting on a hint from O'Connor, Mary is soon knee deep in murder, money-laundering, blackmail, professional sabotage, and computer hacking, and must rush to uncover the truth before the bodies start stacking up..

Loved it!!! Lots of yummy UST going on in this book. The story itself was pretty good too. The only thing I feel is that in the end, Mary seems to have gotten the short end of the stick. Nothing really changed for her. I hope, some years later, she would get her HEA ending with a husband who is as fierce as her and is not afraid to fight for her, a guilt-free conscience, a child (although she says there is no hope for it) and most importantly, working as a pastry chef at a place that doesn't take up 14 hours of her day from her!!!!

O'Connor: "If I'd known it was you, I wouldn't have clamped my hand over your mouth. I'd have traced my fingers around those beautiful lips of yours. If I'd known it was you, I'd have kissed the white of your arm until I reached the base of your neck. I knew it was you because when I lay against your long, lovely body I smelled chocolate. You're the only woman I know who always smells like chocolate."
