Want a bite?

One sensual bakery
Two misguided hearts.
One taste of passion.


He's perfection--chiseled and sculpted.
A creation of beauty--that I'd like to taste.
A small morsel of sensual desire.
But a man like Gabe Moreno
Can have any woman he wants,
Not a woman like me.

At least that's what I thought--
What I believed.
But I was wrong.
I had no idea what he was

Fanning the flames

First half of the book was a 5, second half a 3. While I loved the characters Ally and Gabe, I felt that the book dragged on a bit too long and by the end of the book there was too much back and forth questioning their relationship and another obstacle popped up just as they resolved the current one. The chemistry between the two was amazing as Gabe saved Ally and her cat Codsworth as her new bakery catches on fire. Gabe’s desire was stoked by this fiercely independent working

One day Ally meets Gabe and there attraction towards each other is instant but she's hesitant cause of her past but will she give Gabe a chance? Will Gabe open up to Ally and tell her the truth about himself? Drama, hotness and romance in this series! 4/5 stars *** I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book ***

I like the story but didn't love it. Gabe was a little too mysterious and not a huge fan of Ally. Overall it was an okay story.

These become so real as I feel the emotions of the characters and I have to get to the end. I can’t put it down until I’ve finished the book. 😍😍

Ally is starting a new life after a bad breakup. She has opened a bakery even after a bad start which include fire and being rescued by a mysterious fireman. Her bakery opens and customer start spreading the word. One customer who happens to come strolling in is Gabe, who also wants more then her cakes ;)
Poor Ally! that ex of hers is a right douchebag. Her self confidence over her body hasn't been helped with hid vile words. Why can't he just leave her alone? Now especi

I voluntarily read a Review Copy of this book. All opinion stated are solely my own and no one else's.

I really enjoyed this book: I smiled, laughed got frustrated and was shocked by the events that unfolded.

Allegra, is saved by a mysterious firefighter when a fire breaks out in her bakery. She can't stop thinking about him: that is until a sexy guy walks into her bakery. His presence makes her head cloudy, she literally finds herself drooling over him lol and his smile literally makes her panti

Thanks to for the ARC.
The excerpt is better then the story. This book started out great, the fire and being rescued by the firefighter and how she was lusting after this mysterious fire fighter but then it just went down hill from there. Her ex was just odd throughout this book, but the story never went into details was he drinking, using drugs? It took so long for Gabe to open up about his life, that I was already checking out by the time to cameup in the book. The story could hav

Very Entertaining

This box set makes me want to start making cupcakes! Colleen draws you in from the very beginning and has enough mystery to really keep you from wanting to put the book down.
Allegra had a lot of depth in her character and you can't help but root for her. And Gabe well who doesn't like a hot firefighter who really is trying to make something of his life outside of the crap family life he has! And it wasn't hard whatsoever to really dislike Faith!
Great job Colleen, the series fl

It was a good story, but I'm slightly confused. Her ex is an abusive corrupt pos, and we are supposed to believe that he just went quietly into the night and accepted their relationship after being obsessed with her? Not realistic at all. I know men like that and they don't stop until they get what they want or are forced to. Other than that, I enjoyed the book very much. I just wish that these would be marketed as one shorter book than a multi part series. It makes no sense.

I didn't love it.

The story lines were good but, Ally was too uptight, everything made her mad. Then the "I hate him but still love him" was way over used. All the other characters were great. I would have liked some closure about the ex, but oh well.
There is a second book with this set that I am enjoying so far. It's called Bait.

I loved this three part series. The formatting of the edition I received was less than desirable but the steamy romance and fantastic characters made up for it. There was a bonus of part one of the Bait series at the end and I am definitely going to see what happens in that one. Great character and the writing only improved as the story moved along.

A great box set.

This set has it all.....Great hero, feisty heroine, brilliant best friend and even the crappy ex-boyfriend and psycho ex-girlfriend.

The chemistry between Gabe and Allegra was beautifully written. The characters were well developed and had realistic dialogue.

I was left wanting more..

I recieved a copy of thi book in return for an honest review.

Great that you didnt have to stop reading witha boxed set. They story kept me reading wanting to find out if Ally & Gabe would make it work or if Ally's twisted ex would mess things for them. Twists all the way through these books.

Vindictive, manipulating and deceptive, is the best and only way to describe this story. I'd like to say that it was addicting, but it wasn't all that drool worthy.
