Book Review: CAKE

CAKE by Lauren Dane

CakeFrom 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...

Kindle Edition
Expected publication: September 15th 2013 by Harlequin
So first off Cake is a really interesting title, I thought as it being a very sweet and tasty read and it was! Cake also had artistic aspects into the story where the characters both are very passionate about their art.  I request Cake from Netgallery, I do not own it/paid for it.
My review of Cake . . .
Wren has always been Gregori's messenger but Wren also has love Gregori's art work that he put hours into but soon Gregori and Wren will finally get that long last taste they both desires.

Gregori had dealt with ups and downs during his life and he rather be hard at work than anything else.  But can he deny the sweetness of Wren?

A kiss sweet as cake drives both Wren and Gregori to want more . . .
But can both Wren and Gregori have cake and eat it too?
I give this a four and a half Cat Tails Up, Lauren Dane really created a sweet and passionate novella of two that just need to have their cake and eat it too.
Meow, Meow, Meow
I'm all for cake but I'd prefer cupcakes, that isn't the case for Wren and Gregori they both have an instant chemistry although it wasn't always there. But soon Wren and Gregori both enjoy their time together, their common passion for art and their tasty treats.

Now not every couples have a positive side, they also can have a negative side to the relationship. Gregori couldn't admit to how he felt about Wren but he didn't want a committed relationship either. So eventually he want to cut all contact with her, hoping that it will suggest Wren that he only wants a friendship out of it.

Wren little taste of cake made her realizes that Gregori is very good with his tasty treats and his hands, the burning sweet sensation that kept her wanting more..

In the end Wren isn't going to let Gregori push her away, so she surprises him where he was going to be presenting an art piece only to led Gregori into the biggest ultimatum he has ever gotten.

Gregori can no longer denies the sweetness of Wren. 

About Lauren Dane

Author Photo WebThe story goes like this — Seven years ago, Lauren Dane decided to quit her job and stay home with her brand new second child. As a result, she had lots of conversations in a sing-song voice but no real outlet for adult thoughts and words. While on bed-rest with her pregnancy with the tiny monster, Lauren had plenty of down time so her husband brought home a second hand laptop and she decided to “give that writing thing a serious go.”
Lauren had no idea how fabulously wonderful it would feel to actually make a go of her writing and she’s thankful every day people actually want to read what she writes! She’s well aware of her good fortune and loves every moment of it, even when she has to edit and put Barbie’s dresses back on over and over again. She still hasn’t managed to figure out how to shut out the sound of Wizards of Waverly Place so she can write a love scene, though.
