Another steamy, sexy, yummy tale from Janelle Denison! Kayla Thomas owns her own bakeshop and is experimenting with a new line of chocolates - but not just any chocolates - these are laced with an aphrodisiac! She just needs the perfect test subject to try them out on. Will they really stimulate a sexual response? And how much fun will it be testing it out with the right guy?!
Jack Tremaine is the owner of one of the most popular restaurants in town and is in the process of opening a second. He has been so wrapped up in ensuring the success of his restaurant, and now launching the new one that he has spent little time dating - at least not seriously. And as one of the most eligible bachelors in town, he tends to attract shallow, vapid model-types that quite frankly bore him - like his date for the evening. He spots a gorgeous, voluptuous blond serving desserts at a Chamber of Commerce dinner and discovers that her shop catered the desserts for the event. She's a breath of fresh air - warm, sweet and curvy - and they flirt and have some serious chemistry. He suggests that he may want to hire her to revamp his dessert menu in his restaurant - a real coup for her and her business.
When he shows up at the bakeshop to taste-test one of her dessert suggestions, she decides to also have him taste some of her aphrodisiac candies! He's a gorgeous, dark haired, blue-eyed hunk who is way out of her league (she's got serious body image issues ingrained by her mother and an ex-boyfriend), but if the candies have the desired effect, she may be able to have a little fantasy time with him! Well, if the steamy kiss they share in her shop is any indication, it looks like the candy works REALLY well!
They begin an affair with Kayla always bringing a new flavour of candy for him to try each time that they are together. But is Jack's response driven by the aphrodisiac or by a real attraction to Kayla? And what happens when he discovers that she's been using him as a guinea pig? Was the whole thing the real thing or all an illusion?
I loved this story, could identify with Kayla and her insecurities and found Jack to be a really sweet, sexy and nice guy. I wonder if a story will be coming to feature Kayla's former model sister Jillian and Jack's business partner Rich ! Very highly recommended!
