She can't afford to lose this…or him

There's no way that struggling single mom Janie Young is going to lose Family Secrets. Not even to Dr. Burke Carter. The prize money and media exposure from the cooking-competition show will secure the future for her and her son, who has special needs. Sure, Burke is a talented chef with his own reasons to win, but he already has so much: wealth, a beautiful daughter, great looks…and definitely her attention. As their families become closer, Janie is beginning to care too much about him. But she can't afford to get involved. Not when everything is riding on beating him.

For Love or Money has a fun setting with a cooking show competition where the characters of this book meet.  They share a common goal of winning the competition which makes them naturally working against each other.  Burke is trying to win the competition for his daughter who is struggling with depression, blame and self worth since the death of her mother.  Janie is desperate to win because she needs the money to help with the costs of being a single mother and raising her young special needs son.  Both have a lot on the line.

I enjoyed the story line of this book.  I kind of wish I had more details of the actual cooking show that would have brought that aspect of it to life more.  The relationship between Burke and Janie is slow moving as they are both a bit wary and the competition is definitely something they cannot ignore.  Burke's daughter is the catalyst in bringing the two together even though she does it without realizing.  The story spends a lot of time in the head's of both Janie and Burke as they try to figure things out.  

Janie has two fantastic friends who offer support and encouragement to her.  I loved them.  The ending was climaxed perfectly and left me feeling good about the world again.  :)

This book is gentle, slow moving and full of emotional struggle for the characters.  There are lots of real life challenges represented.  This is a clean read with the Harlequin Heartwarming line, but just as a head's up, many of Tara Taylor Quinn's book are not clean so just be aware if that matters at all to you.

Content:  some profanity and mild swearing
