After reading Sex and Candy by Rachel Kramer Bussel, I decided to do a search for erotica books that dealt with sexy sweets. Through this search I was led to the book Candy Store by Bella Andre. After reading the description I’ve been yearning to make this novel a part of my personal library. Although, I’ve never read any books by Bella Andre, I am very anxious to read this novel.
On the verge of losing her candy store, Callie Moore decides to blot out her troubles with a tall, dark, handsome stranger. Derek McNear isn’t about to turn down a cute, curvy woman who offers sizzling-hot sex in a commercial refrigerator at his best friend’s wedding reception. But the next day, when Callie discovers that Derek is the consultant she has hired to save her store, they find it difficult to concentrate on business. Especially when giving and getting pleasure in each other’s arms is so much more fun!
Foods, particularly sweets, have always been on my list of favorite things. Anytime I see a delectable treat on the cover of a book I am automatically drawn to it. The cover of Bharti Kirchner’s Pastries: A Novel of Desserts and Discoveries caught my eye immediately. And after reading the book’s description, I’ve been pining to add this book to my collection.
Sunya Malhotra, a young American woman whose parents had migrated from India, is the head baker and owner of Pastries, a warm and cozy bakery in Seattle. Sunya loves baking and has transformed her fabulous cakes and tarts into delicious works of art. The success of her beloved bakery is put in jeopardy, however, when a chain bakery threatens to open up down the street from her. To add to her misery, Roger, her hip, Japanese boyfriend has left her for a “perfect” Japanese girlfriend and her mother has just become engaged to a man Sunya detests. Sunya hasn’t yet reconciled to the mystery of a father missing since her birth. Even a new relationship with a hot, young film director who is in town to cover the 1999 World Trade Conference, can’t help Sunya with her biggest worry – she has lost her touch for baking.
Overwhelmed, Sunya is surprised to find herself listening when her new Japanese baker offers her a solution to her problems – enroll in a baking school in Japan! Of course, this isn’t just any baking school. It is run by a famous Japanese baker, Mori Matsumoto, and is based on the principle of mindfulness. Soon Sunya finds herself learning the basic skills of baking all over again. Is this what she needs to rediscover herself? Will she recapture her zest for work and life?
While we are on the topic of sweets, nothing whets my appetite like a great piece of candy. And my favorite candy of all is candy corn. It’s no wonder that the book Candy Corn and Cocky Kisses by Alyssa Brooks and Larissa Lyons caught my eye. The title is quite intriguing, as is the plot. I am desperate to add this book to my private library.
