Cake by Lauren Dane: A Red Hot Cosmo Reads

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...

This was really, really good. We have two artists for main leads, approaching the practice of their art from two different perspectives. They come from two very different family backgrounds.  One has reached the top of his field and reaping the benefits. The other one is just starting out. And yet they 

click. The nice thing about this relationship is the attraction was gradual, a slow build up was already 
there. So as readers we are introduced to their characters while in the middle of their story. Both Gregori and Wren are well developed fully fleshed out protagonists, again for a short novella this was done so well and so seamlessly that there were no jarring breaks while reading. The pacing of the story was just right. A female lead who goes for what she wants and isn't scared of possible rejection is another plus. A hero who is sensitive and gun shy is another good twist. The scenes between them are both heartwarming and steamy. Great writing from a great author.
