I went to war, running away from myself. I came back in pieces to find out who I really was... It took me nearly ten years, two tours in Afghanistan and losing a leg to come to terms with who I really am. Two years after coming back from war, I can say that I’m finally content. I’m as fit as ever, my prosthetic leg allowing me the freedom of moving and exercising as if nothing has changed. I own a small bakery in the centre of Cambridge, and I have a loyal circle of friends that I can always count on. And yet... Yet, there’s something missing. A part of me craves the intimacy, the deep connection to another human being. But another – bigger – part of me is terrified of letting anyone in. My internal conflict didn't stand a chance when I met Jay. He stormed through my defence walls like a hurricane, wrapping around me with gentle force until I had no choice but to surrender. Surrendering has never felt so good. Will Jay want to stay when he sees the real me? When he sees the nightmares and insecurities clawing at my soul? My name is Amir Gopal and this is my story.

Cookies is my first Teofora Kostova and it wasn't bad at all. Sometimes we need a sweet love story. Pun intended. Even with its lightness, Cookies does touch on our need to not forget & respect our returning veterans, nice touch.The MC's both were interesting. Amir Gopal with his self-doubts and his...

I super needed this. It was light and sweet and hot and I adored Amir so much!I loved watching Amir interact with his friends, Peter and Shane and Greg. They know each other, in a way no one else will ever really understand, they know when to push and about what and when to let things go. Solid fr...

4.0 Sweet with food for thought
Cookies is a wonderful and sweet story. Amir and Jay were adorable together. Clearly attracted to each other from the moment they first set eyes on each other their story is never about whether or not they love each other, or outside forces trying to split them up. What angst there was in this story...
