I was given an ARC for an honest review....... LESBIAHONEST here.. When NICOLE REED offers an ARC to you, you quietly accept while really on the otherside of the monitor you are SCREAMING JUMPING UP AND DOWN AND BITING AT THE BIT TO GET IT IN YOUR HANDS ALL OVER THAT BOOK..... So, here it is ... MY HONEST REVIEW: SO, Cake... Who doesn't love cake? It's sweet and yummy and we ALL want some as soon as we see, smell, or think of it.. WELLLLLL..... Cake in this case comes in the form of two delicious men.. Trent and Dray.. CAKE YUMMINESS AT IT'S BEST. So, Kylie has loved "him" for the past 7 years.. She can't let another man in her life for this reason.. The "other" man is "his" best friend and constantly teases and taunts her. (Ok, from outside the box - we all know what a "mean" boy means- HE LOVES YOU) "Cake #1" does alot of humanitarian work and travels the world in doing so- so he is constantly in and out of her life.. "Cake #2" - lives near Kylie and they have a very intertwined life so she has alot of encounters with his Cocky self. After having to help out Cake #2 - they finally realize all that hatred is built up sexual tension and decide to start a strictly physical relationship- after all .. what can it hurt. No feelings. No emotion. No one gets hurt. Well.. after a while that physical comes with emotion whether you want it to or not. When Cake #1 storms back in Kylie's life- she has to question EVERYTHING. Was her love for him "true Love" or just in love with the idea of him? Could she really love Cake #2 and just not want to admit it? And given they are all best friends and practically family, it makes for a huge mess and lots of decisions that can change Kylie's life as well as both her Cupcakes;) There is all kinds of "stuff" that happens that I can not tell but believe me - I HAVE LOTS OF WORDS ABOUT IT... Trent- PERFECT in every way.. Loving, handsome, Do-gooder, loves Kylie but never wants to lose their friendship even though he knows she loves him Dray- PAIN IN THE ACE... Hot head, Domineering, over bearing, cocky, a tad arrogant and SMOKIN HOT.. I was in L.O.V.E. from the start. <-- I wanted a peice of the cake for myself... FANNING AS I AM TYPING... WOW. If I could rate this higher than 5 - I WOULD. The story is flawless.. It had me all over the place with emotions.. Laughing, crying, furious, about to puke, biting my nails, SOBBING MY FACE OFF, dripping with sweat, fanning and swooning over hottness, and in total love with every character.. (well all but that one obnoxious Lil Rip that I wanted to throat punch twice..) Nicole did NOT disappoint.. Cake was worth the wait. I LOVED her ruining series but she outdid herself with Cake. Is it possible to have a cake hangover? <--- WELL THIS GIRL is sugared up and still coming back down off my high. Will Kylie have her cake and eat it too? Read it to find out but I can tell you anything is possible ...Especially with CAKE **OH AND ONE MORE NOTE-- MADISON.. NEEDS A BOOK.. AND LIL RIP NEEDS TO DISAPPEAR.. SO, LET'S MAKE THAT HAPPEN ASAP..MMMKAY?? <3 Toski Some highlighted quotes that MUST be re-quoted:: "Bless her heart.. Everyone knows that bless her heart in the south means that Stupid B*tch" <-----HAHHAHHAHHAH " This isn't a kiss.. It's a brand.. It's ownership.. It's a future .. It's a promise" " This is love. Everlasting true love in it's highest form. I know when he says forever, he means it." "It's not the circumstances we find ourselves in that define us, it's how we overcome them."
Would you be willing to make a mess of your life to get exactly what you want?
Kylie Lord has known Trent Moss and Dray Savage since college. Trent, the smart and kind-hearted humanitarian has had her heart from the moment they met, but someone else always has his. Dray is an arrogant professional football player who happens to be Trent’s best friend and Kylie’s nemesis “with benefits.”
Five years after graduation, Kylie is commanding the world with a new image and a successful business; however, she lacks the one thing she wants and the one thing she can never have. That is, until one fateful night when Kylie decides to go after all of her forbidden fantasies and risk everything.
Two men, completely different and poles apart, but together they are her idea of perfection. One can only offer her tonight and the other forever, but can Kylie settle for just one man, or can she have her cake and eat it too?
“Do you feel that, Kylie?” He continues to caress my arm with his hand. “That’s power running between you and me. I never imagined it would be so strong, so intense. Can you even conceive what my body rubbing against yours well feel like? Please unlike either one of us has ever experienced. Sex in its greatest form.”
His words hypnotize me, seduce me, and demolish my inhibitions so that even my common sense agrees with what he is saying. I’ve never wanted sex as much as I want it with Dray at this moment. In my head, I can see images of us entwined together, his dark against my light skin. The sight, in my mind’s eye, so clear, so erotic, that my breathing becomes erratic just with the thought. Closing my eyes, I feel his fingers glide to my breasts, circling the tip through my clothes. My clit throbs in tune with his movements almost as if he is touching me there. Dray grasps my nipple tightly as he pulls and squeezes. The dual motion overwhelms my senses, and an orgasm overcomes me, rippling up and through my body. Clenching my legs together, I moan as I ride it out. My body shakes, tingling with the aftermath of what just happened, and what I need to be happening again; however, sanity returns with me still sitting on the side of the couch. Opening my eyes, Dray stares at me like he knows my every thought. At least now, he has a supreme satisfied smile on his mouth and his shorts are in a superior tent out front.
“Damn girl. That is about the hottest sight I’ve ever seen. Had you been butt-naked, I think I would have exploded right along with you.”
