She won’t be satisfied with just one bite...
Art student-slash-bike messenger Wren Davis pursues what she wants. And what she wants now is Gregori Ivanov, rock star of the Seattle art scene. With his tattoos, piercings and sensual sneer, Gregori is the ultimate bad boy. Wren’s gotten to know the man beneath the body art, too—and it only makes her crave him more.
But Gregori loves women like he loves cake and champagne—intensely, but only for the moment. And after Wren experiences just how scorching sex with Gregori is, she’s determined to show him that just one taste won’t be enough...
After requesting another book from Cosmo Red-Hot Reads, I saw this one and thought it was worth giving a shot. Since it's a novella, it makes for a quick read. While I did find it pretty cute, it wasn't as great as anticipated.
The friendship that developed between Wren and Gregori pre-novella was clear in their initial interactions in the book. It was amusing to see how they talked to each other, how much they knew about each other. Their potential chemistry was there, despite the fight on his end. Their romance develops sweetly, and you can tell that Wren and Gregori both long for more. Can they handle it only being temporary?
Cake was one of those appealing short love stories. Lauren Dane told this romance in a very sweet way. Gregori, while an interesting sort of fellow, didn't seem like such a bad boy. He was more wary of commitment due to the past. It was nice to see Wren bring out the best in him. Although this isn't among my usual category of reads, I would recommend it to those who like them.
