Review: Cake by Lauren Dane...4 out of 5 rating...

From New York Times bestselling author Lauren Dane comes the latest release from Cosmo Red-Hot Reads from Harlequin.

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...
I really enjoyed this story and although it was short, it definitely didn’t lack in romance, story, characters or sex!! ;)

Gregori was such an interesting character not only in appearance but in attitude.  Tattooed, alpha, muscled, colored mohawk, pierced ;), Russian, sexy, charming, smart, confident, artistic and he loved his sweets. He was totally yummy and I could not get enough of him. *sigh*

Wren was a great character also and I loved these two together. She was so strong and smart and sassy and I loved the way that she just got everything about Gregori and his work. I also loved how determined she was to get what she wanted. She wasn’t going to let anything stand in her way including Gregori!! I liked the way she pursued him ~ she wasn’t pushy or sneaky and she didn’t play games. I also loved how she was so settled in her life and that she didn’t need any man to complete her but wanted to share her life with someone.  They definitely complimented each other as a couple.  And of course as being written by Lauren Dane, the sex was smoking hot and intense!! So good!!

Of course, Gregori being an alpha male hero, screwed up with Wren but he definitely redeemed himself.  lol

Another winner from Lauren Dane and definitely a favorite of mine.  

4 out of 5 rating.

I not only loved this cover but the title as well!! :)

  1. Can I just say that the title alone makes me want cake. This sounds like a fun, sexy & quick read. And I like that the lead is Russian. I have a thing for dudes with accents and he sounds sexy. Thanks for the review
