-- A Pretty Little Favorite --
Enter Hunter Morgan, the contractor in charge of Licked's renovations. Devastatingly handsome, and a smartass to boot, he's got his eyes on Ryleigh from the moment he finds her passed out on his couch (yeah, that's a long story). There's just one tiny complication—he happens to be Cameron's best friend.
When the lines between relationships and friendships blur, and it's impossible to choose between two delicious flavors, what's a girl to do? Taste a sample of each? Or go out and get LICKED?
EEPP! This book was AMAZING! A downright funny novel that will keep you laughing into the night! Readers who have a good sense of humor, a dirty mind, and those who don’t care about body part references and comparisons with ice-cream than this is your book! I absolutely loved every single minute of it! And to boot, this cover is GORGEOUS! This is probably what first drew me to the book and I am SO glad I read it!
This book is about a woman named Ryleigh who owns a pretty cool ice cream shop named licked. This ice cream shop though is not your typical, run of the mill parlors. Instead, it offers come pretty eccentric things… Like ice creams named Cookie-Dil-Dough, and Like a Virgin Vanilla Bean! Ha, I laughed so loud when I read some of these names. Anyway, when Rayleigh goes to her 10-year high school reunion she runs into the sex-god she had crushed on all throughout high school. And when I say run in, I mean she physically ran into his manly parts and had a grope because apparently he was streaking. Now if that isn’t a warm welcoming after so many years I don’t know what is! As Rayleigh and Cameron reconnect and hit it off it seems that life is looks pretty exquisite. But Rayleigh has some problems to deal with. Like bad contractors who aren’t doing their job within her shop. Thankfully, before Cameron goes to Hong Kong for business he sets her up with his best friend Hunter who happens to be a contractor. At first the two have some mild flirtation going on but it becomes clear throughout reading that the two have more in common than they believed. And when they get together, sparks will IGNITE!
With a teeny amount of drama, a lot of humor, and some kick ass ice creams, this novel will surely please many readers! Please note, there is NOT a love triangle going on in this novel. The relationship between Rayleigh, Cameron, and Hunter is not where the drama lies. Rather, a small amount of insecurities come into play and leave readers hanging for a minute, but not more than that! This is a very sweet and fun novel that I highly suggest getting your hands on. I. Loved. It!
