Review: Just Desserts
Just Desserts by Tawdra Kandle
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
If you’re looking for a fun, romantic read that sizzles off the page, look no further! This follow-up to the wonderfully written Best Served Cold is so much more than a companion piece. The story shows Ava’s perspective to the Jules/Liam debacle and just continues to build from there. This author never ceases to amaze me with her ability to turn the “bad guy” into someone I find myself rooting for.
In Best Served Cold, we meet Liam through the eyes of Jules. He broke up with her in the worst possible way, which resulted in her and her roommate, Ava, hatching a plan to get the ultimate revenge. During the execution of this plan, Ava ends up becoming the focus of Liam and this story just grows from there. So, you’re probably in the same boat I was in if you’ve already met Liam – how on earth could I possible want Ava and Liam to be the focus of a romance book? He really messed with Jules and we hate him, right? Well, somehow, a little bit at a time, Liam starts to grow from the one dimensional “bad guy” into a really misunderstood character. I don’t know how it happens, or when it happens, but suddenly I found myself yelling at Ava for being so suspicious or hesitant. Amazing, but totally true. This author works some magic in the pages of this book that I can’t even begin to comprehend.
I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the sizzling chemistry in this book. Liam and Ava light up the pages, even when she’s fighting her attraction to him with all she’s got. There’s a good balance between sexy times and romance that will keep readers of all types addicted. The amount of heart and “real life” in these stories hooked me from the first page. These books are really fun, quick, and surprising reads that have converted an exclusively paranormal romance reader into one that can take a chance on romance with absolutely no paranormal elements in it. Take a chance on this series and you won’t be disappointed!
