"Cake and orgasams-life doesn't get much better than that."
I've been processing how I wanted to go about my review for this one for awhile now. It wasn't because it was a bad read, far from it actually, it was just that I felt kind of ambivalent about it really. I liked it, but I had some issues with it as well that were minor so I didn't know how I was going to go about explaining myself. LOL
We have a dynamic male lead and a interesting enough female lead, but I wanted to see a bit more development with them beyond just the sex. I felt like so much of the time they spend together was having sex, that not much relationship building went on between them. I noticed several opportunities that were there, but sadly they were missed. In the end, I felt that these two actually knew very little about one another to fall in more than lust with one another in my honest opinion.
Now on the flip side of that, the sexy times were indeed page turners for me, and I found myself needing to fan myself off it was so hot. Louise just has a way of writing fantastic love scenes where you can actually feel the heat coming off of the pages. The story itself was intriguing, and I really did enjoy it overall. It was a tad on the predictable side, but I chalk that up to just how much I read these days. It's hard for me to be surprised anymore. I do look forward to reading more from Louise in the future though. I think she has a great voice and she writes compelling story lines that definitely keep a reader engaged. Given that, I'd definitely suggest this one guys. I think you'll enjoy it.
