About Love and Pancakes:

Marissa Grayson’s dream went up in smoke. A devastating fire has ripped apart her family’s bed and breakfast, leaving her off-kilter and scrambling to repair the damage. What she doesn’t need, or have time for, is Rhenn Burleski. Sexy, confident, and dangerous to her heart. A man who clearly knows his way around the female body and will leave the moment the sheets start to cool. Yet that doesn’t stop her from making a deal with the devil himself.


Work hard, play harder. That’s Rhenn’s life motto. An electrician by day, Rhenn turns it up at night, always with a different lady friend in tow. He makes sure they know the score: he’s not looking for anything more than one night of fun. However, he knows the second he meets the shy daughter of the bed and breakfast’s owner that his life is never going to be the same. As hard as he tries, he just can’t resist one taste.


What happens when their time is up and Rhenn must leave, returning to his old life? Will they be able to walk away, hearts unscathed, or will their time together prove to be nothing more than a fading memory?

Kara's Review

Love and Pancakes is Lacey Black’s new novel and the first book in the new series, Rockland Falls. This series is a spinoff of one of my favorite series’, Summer Sisters. Lacey knows how to deliver the goods with her sexy heroes, sassy leading ladies, laughs, fun and family. We know and love the Summer sisters and their families and we’ve met Rhenn before. He’s Nick’s best friend and I fell in love with him in My Kinda Forever. We learned that Orval (Grandpa) has a sister, Mary Ann Grayson. She has two daughters (Marissa and Harper) and two sons (Samuel and Jensen). This is Marissa and Rhenn’s story! There’s been a fire at the Grayson Bed and Breakfast that Marissa and her mom run. Rhenn was hired to do the electrical work on the house so he’s in Rockland Falls for a while, planning on enjoying the sun, the water and maybe a woman or two. Until he meets Marissa. Rhenn has never had a reaction like this to any woman before. It must be a fluke because she’s nothing like his usual type. She’s little, brunette, and there isn’t anything fake about her, inside or out. The sparks fly from the first look and he can’t stop thinking about her. But getting involved with the sexy woman isn’t a good idea. He’s leaving soon. They have to work together. She’s kinda like family. Doesn’t stop him from fantasizing about her though. Marissa can’t believe how hot the electrician is. Who has a right to look that damn good? Rhenn. She thinks she catches him staring and flirting, but that can’t be right. She’s nothing special and he’s gorgeous. But Rhenn is staring and he can’t keep his eyes off her. He doesn’t see any other women except Marissa. No one even holds a candle to her. Why doesn’t she see what he sees? She’s beautiful, funny, smart and sexy. And he wants her. Period. To say he’s shocked when she propositions him is the understatement of the century. Yes, please. When, where and how? Will Rhenn be able to walk away when his time is up? Will Marissa be the woman who changes his mind about love? I loved this story! I laughed, cried, got hot and bothered and laughed some more. I loved meeting this new family and really loved seeing Nick, Meghan and a few other Summers as well! Rhenn was everything I thought he would be and so much more. If you’ve read Lacey before you will already want to read this. If you are new to her, get this book! Start this new series. Fall in love with these characters. Lacey will always give you want you need!


That’s why I must initiate my Rhenn Burleski force field, keeping him and his sexy eyes and masculine scent and tree trunk thighs and broad shoulders and…

Where was I going with this?


“First time I saw boobs and got a boner,” Nick adds, pulling his wife into his embrace and holding her close.

“Where did you get Penthouse?” Meghan asks, glancing over to Rhenn as if he’s instantly the guilty party.

“Don’t look at me like that. Your husband found it and showed it to me.”

“Bullshit, asshole! I only found it because you told me to snoop in my dad’s office.”

“I told you to look for spare change to buy candy. Not porn,” Rhenn blasts, giving his friend a pointed look.


“I’m completely turned on right now,” I deadpan, watching her devour her PB and J sandwich.

“Of course you are. You’re breathing,” she teases, shoulder bumping me as I polish off my lunch.

“It’s you. You have this reaction on me,” I confess, though I assume she already knows. It’s definitely no secret.


Sandra's Review

Love and Pancakes is the first book in Lacey’s all-new series, Rockland Falls. I have had the pleasure of reading all of Lacey’s books and have loved them all. I know I will fall in the love with the characters, the towns, and their stories. The Rockland Falls series is full of new characters and also some previous ones from the Summer Sisters series. You don not need to read that series to fall for this one but you will definitely want to after meeting them.
The night of the fire changed everything. Marissa’s childhood home and bed and breakfast was everything to her and it was almost lost to the flames. It would had if she didn’t take a walk on the beach that night. It was only damaged with smoke, soot, and faulty wiring. It all needed to be cleaned and remodeled. It was going to take months to reopen the doors to her family’s business. The one she ran. Her baby. She couldn’t afford any distractions. Then, he enters her world. Rhenn. A man with a smirk that could melt panties off a nun. And he just so happens to be the electrician who is going to bring the Bed and Breakfast back to working order. Yep. She is screwed.
Rhenn knew from the moment he saw her, soot and all that he wanted a taste. He also knew one taste wouldn’t be enough. That was why he told himself to keep clear of the shy, beautiful woman who he wanted to lay out in his bed. On his bed. On the forest floor. He was only here for a few weeks and he knew she wasn’t the kinda woman who would only want one night of pleasure. She is the kinda woman who would want a forever. Well…he doesn’t do love. He does one night stands. But, he can’t help the way his body and mind reacts to Marissa. Will she be onboard with a little no-strings attached fun while he is in town?
Awe! I love Rhenn and Marissa! The slow burn between them is sexy as hell. The fun banter is refreshing for them both. The way they bring each other out of their comfort zones is both sexy and emotional. I liked Rhenn is My Kinda Forever as Nick’s best friend but I fell for him hard in this book. I couldn’t wait to see a woman bring him to his knees and Marissa is a perfect match.
Overall…it’s an amazing start to a new series! It’s so fun to get to know new characters and catch up with old ones. This story made me laugh out loud, cry, and get all kinds of hot and bothered.
I’m not sure if she’s feeling the same pull as I am, or if it’s the fact that she looks like Cinderella right now after cleaning the entire castle.
He whispers against my ear and I have to bite back the moan. “What else is on that magical list of yours, Angel?”
“Back when you were younger?” I bet they have stories for days.
“Younger? Shoot, Rhenn. Last Tuesday.”

Exclusive Excerpt:

“Our first time together isn’t going to be on the floor or on the table.”

“I’m not opposed to the counter,” I whisper, apparently loud enough for him to hear.

Rhenn chuckles. “I promise you, our first time is going to be better than this,” he adds, nodding toward the floor, and believe it or not, I’m disappointed by this development. “Right now, my friends are probably getting ready for our day of sailing. We’re going to head back to my boat, you’re going to throw on a swimsuit, and I’m going to enjoy the fuck out of watching you prance around my boat. And tonight? I’m going to love sliding into that shitty-ass fold out bed, and do you know why?”

“Why?” My mouth is Sahara dry.

“Because you’re going to be beside me.”

“And because you’ll get sex?” I tease with a smile.

He shakes his head. “No, no sex tonight. Not with Nick and Meghan on board. When I finally have my way with you, there’ll be no one else around to hear your moans, Angel. No one else will know how many times I’ve made you come. No one but me.”

Then he kisses me again with a hunger that feels as if it won’t ever be quenched. Like he might die if he doesn’t have another taste. I know right then and there, I’m in trouble. I’m completely over my head with this man, which is why I must keep my heart completely out of the equation. In fact, I’m leaving it here at the house. No way am I taking it with me, allowing it to catch one glimpse of the man who kisses me like I’m the very air he breathes.

“And at the end of the two weeks, we walk away.” I say the words aloud, as confirmation to him, but to me, as well. Saying them makes it true, right?

“At the end of my time here, you probably won’t hear from me again.” Even though those are the words I expected to hear, actually listening to him say them causes a little hitch in my heartbeat. See? That’s why my heart is going to be locked in the cabinet at home and not allowed anywhere near my time with Rhenn.

“Just promise me one thing,” I say, pushing aside the heavy feeling in my chest and digging deep for the girl who’s engaging in a no-strings relationship.


“Promise me you won’t fall in love with me.” I mean it as a joke, as a reminder of what this really is, but I don’t anticipate the catch in my breath and the slight pang of sadness when his eyes twinkle with laughter.

“No worries there, Angel. Love isn’t my thing.”
