Goodreads Summary:   I met him at the bakery store where I work. The moment I saw him I knew he was trouble. It was written all over his gorgeous face. When I laid my eyes on his body, my heart started beating in double beats – everything about him screamed bad boy. I wanted to stay away from him but deep down I was dying to explore every inch of his muscular body. He tempted me and I fell under his spell without thinking it further. How can you not fall for someone who loves fudge cake? Ladies, a man who knows how to seduce you with sweets is not a keeper, he’s a sinner…

Short Review:

Dora asked me to review her book Delicious during the Christmas holidays and I was very happy to read it. I didn’t know what to expect but I knew I wasn’t going to regret it.

Delicious is the first short novella in the Delicious series. When you start reading it, you are brought into Jenny’s world. A 19 year old college girl who works into a bakery named Delicious. Her life changes when she finds herself wanting more from a sexy man who picked up fudge cake from the bakery. She can’t seem to forget the mysterious and rude man that walked in and left her kind of in shock.

“Now that hazel eyes is in my life, something inside me has changed. He makes me want to dress up and look sexy, he makes me want to sing and shout because he is awakening these desires that I thought will never be awaken again. I have to admit, I want him so much it hurts. I want to drive him crazy the same way he drives me crazy.” 

Surprisingly she meets with the mysterious man when she goes out with her best friend. And guess what? He also wants her. VERY MUCH. Ernest, the hero of the story, takes Jenny into a passionate journey full of excitement and leaving Jenny to want more. But there is more to this story…and it’s up to you to find out and read the book! But…there is a MAJOR cliffhanger that leaves you wondering….who really is Ernest?

My thoughts:

Delicious is one hell of a story. I really enjoyed it and it was more than I expected. It is very short and leaves you wanting more and wondering what happens next, but it is enjoyable. I am glad Dora gave me the opportunity to read it. I do recommend it for readers that enjoy short novellas. I personally enjoy cliffhanger because it makes me want to read the next book. So if you like cliffhangers, you will enjoy it.

In conclusion, I can’t wait to read more from this series and more work from Dora Sky :).

“Next time when I tell you to do something, you do it. And be careful with your dirty mouth, it can get you in deep trouble.”

Review of Something Like Fate

 

You can obviously tell what this book is about from the cover. I picked up this book because its Susane Colasanti. The first time I saw this book was like 3 years ago and I didn’t know at that time who she was and it didn’t interest me at that time.So when I learned about her last year I was more interested in the book. I also thought the cover was a little surprising do to the fact that all her books aren’t based on this topic of a girl going out with her best friends boyfriend. So when I learned that she wrote this well I was excited but it was surprisingly bad.

Characters

I kind of liked Blake. But I found that he acted kind of girly and weird do to the fact that he is gay. I just didn’t like how he acted sometimes because not all gay guys act like that but I guess the majority do.

Lani’s character to me was okay but I sometimes didn’t like her and she was sometimes too stubborn and I just didn’t get her at all! I did like that she liked all those things but sometimes I just didn’t like her.

Jason was a flat character. He had pretty much NO personality. Whatsoever. I couldn’t connect with him at all, and I really don’t get what exactly makes him and Lani “soul mates”.

The soul mate part I guess was okay but I wont say anymore because then I would end up saying basically the whole book.

Overall, it was an okay book and sometimes it was an enjoyable book. The one thing I did like about it was the fate aspect of it and the whole astrology thing(that’s Susane’s style). Lani and her “best” friend Erin are obsessed with fate, and I really liked that, because you don’t really see that type of thing in many books. But I didn’t really agree with the physic reading. I know a lot of people like that but I don’t agree with that and those are my beliefs.

I was disappointed with this book. I didn’t really like it.And I was surprised because she writes really good but this book just wasn’t what I was expecting.
