“You’re exactly what I never knew I needed.”
“I don’t have time for love.”

Gavin Campbell has poured everything he has into starting up his bakery, Delicious. Its success has given him a sense of security that was sorely lacking in his childhood, and even if working round-the-clock hasn’t left him any time for a personal life, you can’t have it all, right?

Oooooooo I canNOT contain my joy! Such a bloody sweet story. Ben was SOOO adorable, making me want to alternately pull his cheeks and give a slap on the head to help open his eyes to what was happening. His jealous tantrums! Bwaahhahaha. Poor Gavin. Being tempted beyond anything while not seeing any way around it. The story was so funny and so sweet and so bloody DELICIOUS! And the icing on the cake in the form of Danny and Mace's wedding. Oh, what more can a girl want?

This book is ridiculously fluffy with no angst whatsoever.

Everything was so easy: the way Ben accepted that he was attracted to Gavin, the way Ben's dad came around (homophobia to full acceptance just like that), the way Gavin's foot healed ... no drama, no conflict, no tension.

Prepare for a slow burn, relatively low steam, and a blindingly sweet HEA.

BUT: again with the bi erasure. I don't understand why "bisexual" is such a hard concept to grasp for these authors. SERIOUSLY, do better.

Simply adorable.

I liked this one just a bit more than the first book.

Gavin is the owner of the bakery Delicious and is working his ass off since he opened 18 months ago. His friends constantly tell him he needs to let his employees handle more so he can slow down a bit, but Gavin wants to make sure his baby is doing well.

When Gavin gets approached by his banker to have some pictures taken for a promotional campaign, Gavin jumps at the chance for some extra publicity for his business. Especially

Another win for this series, I liked this more than the first.

The blurb really does say it all. Gavin has no time for anything but his bakery. He’s worked hard to make it successful, and his controlling nature makes it very difficult to delegate and let go. Fortuitously(?) an untimely accident occurs, and Gavin must take a step back from his workload. Thankfully, Ben is there to help him out, making him realize there’s more to life than work and that he does want a someone special to

Sweet story. Just what I was looking for.
3.5 Stars

We first met Gavin Campbell in book one (Someday) – he’s the gay owner of the bakery Delicious and best friend to previous MC and cake-decorating-extraordinaire, Danny.

Gavin’s spent the past few years giving everything he’s got into building his business into a thriving enterprise. He spends every waking hour working or thinking about work, with very little time to smell the roses, let along think about his non-existent love life. He’s too busy to really realise he’s lonely, but that’s

*** Delicious and delightful !! *** I won't be able to say enough about this GFY, "gay for you", story ! It deserves more than 5 stars...! LOVED IT !

Ben, 6'5", 30 yr. old Banker, is looking for love in all the wrong places.
Workaholic, Gavin, 24, business owner of a Bakery, with dimples and a positive vibe, has not had time to even look for his "one" and only.
These two have met at the Bank, but now, Ben needs Gavin to pose for a new Bank campaign, and next thing we know,

YEAH! Really LOVE this one!!!!

Warning: Is this an amazing plot and high quality writing book? NO. So, why I give it the 5 Stars? Because I enjoyed every chapter!! Really! This is a total subjective opinion of course but yeah it has just the things I like!

Why I Loved:
This book is SO FUNNY!! A sitecom style jokes and misunderstandings but make me laugh loud!!
**Sexual tension everywhere alert**
The cover! They fit the character descriptions, they look happy, they have clothes :D

I haven't given up yet. I can't help but to keep giving this author a chance :-P. Though I AM picky about which ones I do give a chance to, after Guardian, I am on a mission to find another book this author has written that I like just as much as that book. I anticipate it being THIS one. We shall see ...

The blurb pretty much self explanatory....

This book was delicious in every way. Yep, I had to throw that in there: it was a given. We have two MC's: Gavin and Ben. They are both a lot of a like in a lot of ways. Gavin, we met as a side character form "Someday". Sierra fleshed him out and I did not think I could like these two any better than Mace and Danny from "Someday" but I did. I find Gavin lovable, funny and adorable. His concern and his hours worked at the bakery is understandable and

Sierra has done it again. I enjoyed this story of Gavin and Ben. They were great together and had chemistry from the beginning of the story. This book didn't have a lot of angst which fit perfectly with the story. Ben didn't fight with himself when he fell for Gavin. His family was great and Gavin has wonderful friends as well. We met Gavin in Someday and I was hoping he would get his HEA. Danny is still one of my favorite characters. Overall a sweet story about finding the person who completes ...more

Book – Delicious (Sequel to Someday)
Author – Sierra Riley
Star rating -
No. of Pages – 256

Cover – Very nice.
POV – 3rd person, dual POV
Would I read it again – No.

Genre – LGBT, Gay For You, Contemporary


*Warning: this book, for some reason, made me really snarky. So be prepared for SPOILERS, snark and some bitching ahead.*

So, it happened again. I will never understand this need to start a book with a) a sex scene and b) a sex
This is a sweet read. Ben is a natural care taker and when Gavin gets injured he takes care of him. And falls in love.

Gavin works too much and Ben didn't really understand he was attracted to men until Gavin.

They have a good deal of things to work out but there is great chemistry, care, and respect between these leads to it makes for a really good read.

Sigh... hello hot guys on the cover!

I've recently become quite addicted to this author; it's rare that I find one I'm not completely in love with, although it has happened it's definitely not the case with this one. I absolutely adored Gavin and Ben. Gavin, we remember from Danny and Mace's story "Someday" and let me tell you, they just might be my favorite of all Ms. Riley's books, I was so glad to see them back in this one; especially the ending for them <3 Swooon!

And Ben, formally
A nice story, pretty unrealistic but fun to read.
Just the thing when you need a sugar fix.

3,5 stars
This book takes place in the same universe as Someday, so if you haven't read it yet... you really really should. Someday MIGHT be a little more saccharine than Delicious, in that Danny (MC in Someday) is the epitome of the adorable sweet twink obsessed with Disney Princesses and True Love. You don't HAVE to read Someday to read this book, not at all, BUT I think you should read it.

I didn't realize until I started reading Delicious that it followed up Someday, and then I was also confusing it
I really, really liked this story. One of my favorites in this series
Alexis Woods
An ARC of this book was received free in return for an honest review.

Delicious is a follow-up story to Someday, which was the story of cookie and cupcake decorator, Danny and Mace, a quiet hunk of a gardener.

Danny’s boss is bakery owner, Gavin Campbell. Honestly, I just about squealed when Ms. Riley announced this book (and that’s a rarity for me). Someday was one of my favorites of hers. Gavin needed to find his man, and does he ever. Unfortunately, his eye falls on his straight banker, Ben
Johann Shah
This book was delicious enough, but I would've loved to give it more stars if it'd been less narrative and less wedding. And what the fuck Sierra gave the epilogue to Danny and Mace's HEA?


The whole thing Ben suddenly 'turned gay' wasn't explained very well, so three stars should be enough.

Gavin moaned his agreement, thrusting into Ben’s hand as he let himself go, and then he was coming undone… again. Spilling over Ben’s hand… again. And the sounds of his pleasure—a cascade of unrestrained

OMG! I didn't even realize until closer to the end that this is a sequel to "Someday," AKA my favorite book from this author! Mace and Danny! <3 <3 <3

But, this story is all about Ben and Galvin, and this might now be my second favorite book from this author. I just adored them together, their conversations and interactions, their friends and family being all nosy and wonderful together, and Ben's family. I even appreciated Ben's dad as the main conflict provider, because even though

I really really enjoyed this one. I fell in love with both characters. In the other book, Gavin seemed like too much of a tight ass for me….a little too wound up. But watching him loosen up and fall in love was a pleasure. And I ADORED Ben. I loved watching him struggle with having feelings for a man but not struggle in the way you think. He wasn’t embarrassed by it or thought it was wrong, or even let his family dictate how he should feel. His struggle was just that it was different from what ...more

I was very pleasantly surprised with this book. This is a very low angst, sloooowwwww burn romance. I liked both of the MCs very much. You have straight laced (and supposedly straight) Ben and nose the grindstone, baker Gavin. They meet through business dealings, but they end up spending quite a bit of time together after an unfortunate accident leaves Gavin in need of help.

Though this isn't billed as a series, you do meet Ben in Someday. One of the MC from that book does make an appearance

I have to admit that I am not a big fan of this writers' work. I just haven't found that mass producing books every few weeks does much for making stories I feel I have to have. That being said, the blurb on this one caught me and I had a couple of hours free so I took a shot.

I ended up really enjoying this. It wasn't an epic romance, nor did the beauty of the writing make me weak in the knees. It was fairly unbelievable and not based in any actual reality I can imagine, but it was fun, fast,

Delicious and Someday are my favourite Sierra Riley books....something about the world she has created feels so real and lovely.

The characters are the hero of the these book, I just ADORE them. The romance is delightful and the sex scenes progress from lovely sexual tension right into hotness.

These books are easy to read, completely enjoyable and worth a read.
4.5 Stars!!! I LOVE this book. It is pure, sweet romantic fun! This book is my guilty pleasure. It pushes ALL my buttons: Slow build, GFY, low angst, with two incredibly loveable MC's. Sometimes you just want a story that leaves you with a huge smile on your face and a happy heart...Delicious does that for me!

The title is delicious and I have to say: to is the content. :3 I really LOVE Gavin and Ben together.
Ben is such an adorable guy, touching Gavin often as he can, combined with his sweet aura... *swoon*
Put this book on my Top5 of Sierra Riley books. :3
And I guess I have to put it before Someday. :3
Great piece of work

5 out of 5 stars. :3
Oh, so much better than the first one!

Although this was very, very far fetched, to me it was just so fun to go with it.

Just an easy, breezy good time.

So in love with this series!

Book two in the series, a very different dynamic and yet just as compelling. The author does a great job building these characters as well as the new ones added to the universe. Plus we also get to revisit characters from book one.

The author also does a great job not making caricatures out of the two male members of Ben’s family who react uncomfortably to the idea of Gavin’s sexuality. So many books do the black and white thing...people are totally accepting or

Oh my goodness, this book was so juicy and sumptuous that I…Anyway, calming down now. I believe Delicious is my second favorite of Sierra Riley’s books so far! My first fav is Firewall. I’ve also read Takedown, Devoted, Guardian, and Heartstrings. As for why I gave it five stars, well, first of all, I really enjoyed all of those linguistic innuendoes throughout the book. They were so fun! Great to laugh at, and though you know they’re hurtful to Gavin, you know he’ll have a happily-ever-after in ...more

Another irresistibly charming duo from Sierra Riley…
I was really looking forward to Delicious, and once again, Sierra Riley delivers a sweet and sexy love story with Gavin and Ben. Ben, heir to his family’s banking legacy, meets his match in Gavin, the charismatic bakery owner we met in Someday. With Gavin being so busy running his business, he hasn’t allowed himself the time for a relationship, but finds himself drawn to Ben as their friendship evolves. Ben was a bit of an exercise in
