After breaking his arm on set, Wolf’s Landing stuntman Ginsberg Sloan finds himself temporarily out of work. Luckily, Bluewater Bay’s worst B&B has cheap long-term rates, and Ginsberg’s not too proud to take advantage of them.

Derrick Richards, a grizzled laid-off logger, inherited the B&B after his parents’ untimely deaths. Making beds and cooking sunny-side-up eggs is hardly Derrick’s idea of a man’s way to make a living, but just as he’s decided to shut the place down, Ginsberg shows up on his doorstep, pitiful and soaking wet, and Derrick can hardly send him packing.

Not outright, at least.

The plan? Carry on the B&B’s tradition of terrible customer service and even worse food until the pampered city-boy leaves voluntarily. What Derrick doesn’t count on, though, is that the lousier he gets at hosting, the more he convinces bored, busybody Ginsberg to try to get the B&B back on track. And he definitely doesn’t count on the growing attraction between them, or how much more he learns from Ginsberg than just how to put out kitchen fires.

The Burnt Toast B&B by authors Heidi Belleau and Rachel Haimowitz is the fifth book in the Bluewater Bay series. This is my first time reading this series while there were somethings I was missing the main story itself is easily read without reading the previous books.
Ginsberg broke his arm on set. He is Wolf Landing’s stuntman. Bluewater Bay does not have a ton of places to stay. But there is a cheap B&B. So that is where he goes to recover.
He is cute, funny, and grumbly all at once. He is the kinda guy you want as your best friend.
Derrick is a laid-off logger. He has inherited the B&B he doesn’t want it. He would like to drive his one guest out of it. But he does have a heart he cannot have a man recovering from a serious injury out with no place to stay.
But the more these two get to know each other the more in common they have.  They both are strong, good people, and wounded whether it be physical or mentally.  They do need each other.
 I found this one to be a beautiful story. I loved it and want more from this series in the future.
