Designed By Love by Mary Manners

Traci Stanton's dream is to own a cake shop. The cramped kitchen at her Heart's Haven apartment isn't exactly an ideal space for creating her masterpieces. Plus her new neighbor, Dylan, has become a constant distraction with his DJ business and the ever-present explosion of event music as he tweaks playlists. 

Dylan Jones blew into Angel Falls like a hurricane desperate to leave the memories of a mission gone awry. A former Navy SEAL, he's got no desire to live with deadlines and boundaries or to take orders from anyone--ever again. If only Traci would quit distracting him with the aroma of her sweet confections and lilting voice singing hymns as she works. 
Dylan has no place for the God who let him down and claimed the life of his fellow SEALs.

Will Dylan ever leave the past--and his anorexic faith--behind and allow God to calm the raging storm in his soul?

My Review

Traci Stanton is working towards her dream to have her own bakery. But for now she is working out of her kitchen doing weddings and birthdays. Right now she has a big job for a wedding cake and this will make great money to put away some profits for her  own business in near future. Then it is like thunder shaking the walls and opps the knife goes through into the cake and the decorations start sliding. What on earth! Her cake is ruined!
Dylan Jones moves into Hearts Haven former Navy Seal running from his past. He is not into timelines and taking orders anymore. But why won't that cute Traci next door get out of his senses those sweet aromas ? His DJ  job and music is shaking the rafters. She has had enough! Lighting is about to strike, but in Dylan place! Wow what a sweet romance! How are these  two going to work out living next to each other?  
Wonderful story. Well written by Mary Manners.
