Hello and Welcome to my stop on the Virtual Book Review Tour for "Cake" by Elise Marion. Please be sure to leave a comment or question below as Elise will be awarding the following prize package to two lucky commenters during her tour:
Cake by Elise Marion is a sweet, lightly erotic romance about two best friends who've grown up together and face changes in their relationship as adults. Taylor and Caleb grew up together in a group home knowing they could never depend on their real families, so they learned to depend on each other. They made up their own family, which began when Caleb rescued Taylor from another boy in the group home who wanted to abuse her.
Eighteen years later, Taylor and Caleb are both now both successful adults with careers and their own goals, but they still depend on each other and consider themselves family. Only now, Taylor is beginning to see Caleb as a desirable man and potential romantic love interest.
When Caleb introduces Taylor to Kimberly, a woman he's met and fallen for. Taylor is forced to decide what she wants to do about her feelings. Just when she's thinking it's time to speak up about how she feels, Caleb asks Taylor to become his wedding planner and asks Kimberly for her hand in marriage. is f
Fortunately life gives Taylor a little icing for her cake by introducing her to Ethan, a new baker she's trying out for her business. Ethan is everything a woman could want; he's good looking, successful and really attracted to Taylor. Plus he's an incredible baker and cake designer.
When Taylor has to make a choice between helping her best friend, or getting closer to Ethan and seeing where their relationship could go, will she make the right choice? Will Taylor get to have her Cake and eat it too?
You'll have to read Cake to find out, I enjoyed Ms. Marion's writing and I think you will too. Her characters are well developed and there's just enough angst and spice in the romance to keep things interesting and the plot moving at a good speed.
My Rating: 4 out of 5 Stars
