Julia is a waitress and student finding it hard to make ends meet. John is recently divorced and finding it hard to date. A chance meeting brings them together and this is the story of how their relationship develops. With scenes of a sexual nature, this volume is an easy read and, although a second volume is announced, the story seems complete. The artwork is clear and enjoyable and I can recommend this to lovers of romance comics.
I picked this up for kindle a while back because OWN (I believe) has a series based on it. This summer I started watching the series via Hulu. I now, offically, have too many series on Hulu and AcornTV that I am addicted to watching.
The book is different than the series in some major ways - two siblings instead of three, for instance. But you can see why a series was made from it - race, family, history, and tradition all come into play in the story. There is also quite a bit of class. The tone isn't one of judgement, but of sympathy and reporting, especially in the case of Ralph Angel.
There is a quiet beauty in this story. A love not only for land and family, but also for the beauty of words. It is a beautiful book.
I just didn't connect to this title the way I did to Sunstone or Swing - the storyline and characters lacked emotional punch for me. I think the real issue was that I didn't particularly like most of the characters. Several of the side characters are terrible people, and the main characters both felt very stock. Aptly named, this one can be a bit on the sweet and saccharine side. If you like the movie Pretty Woman this might be a big win for you. I will say that in the end I finally started to connect to Julia, so it must have been doing something right. All in all it was a mixed bag for me.
A Cake sequel
An impromptu road trip makes for the honeymoon Gregori and Wren didn’t know they wanted
Bad-boy artist Gregori Ivanov wants nothing more than to marry Wren Davis. He’s asked her before—more than once—but she insisted on waiting until she’d established her own career. Now that the time is finally right, Gregori has one hell of a celebration in mind. Restaurants, museums and NYC luxury all the way…on top of all the newlywed sex they’ll be having.
The universe, unfortunately, did not get the message. When their plane is grounded in Idaho, they’re forced to improvise a road trip to get back to Seattle instead of the romantic getaway Gregori painstakingly planned. But that they’re together is what’s important, and with giant roadside potato museums, funky galleries in towns with little more than two stoplights and some seriously great diner food—in between all the great sex—Gregori and Wren find a honeymoon as unique and memorable as their love.
The very strong and memorable Gregori and Wren have finally tied the knot and their honeymoon becomes just as unique and memorable as their love is when their plans go awry and they end up on an impromptu road trip. Very sexy and romantic with lots of sizzling chemistry and scorching hot passion that holds readers captive throughout the steady paced plot. Readers can’t help but fall in love with this couple as they can practically feel the love that flows from the pages of this delightful romance and the author ensures that readers are treated to adventure and wonderful settings on a road trip that has readers feeling as if they are tagging along because it is so vividly portrayed.

The story goes like this - While on pregnancy bed rest, LAUREN DANE had plenty of down time so her husband took her comments about "giving that writing thing a serious go" to heart and brought home a secondhand laptop. She wrote her first book on it before it gave up the ghost. Even better, she sold that book and never looked back.
