Vanilla Clouds by Roe Horvat 3.5 Star Review
Vanilla Clouds - Roe Horvat

I could spend days listening to you talk about chocolate.”

Sex and chocolate are the two pleasures Michał enjoys most in life.

His sex life has been nonexistent for some time, though. After a particularly bad hookup, he keeps mostly to himself. That leaves chocolate. Luckily, he works surrounded by the most delicious, extravagant produce in Gothenburg. Beside his job at the chocolaterie, his main source of excitement is his online friend, Magnus, whom he stubbornly refuses to meet in person.

A customer turns up at the chocolaterie one day—tall, shy, and charming. He could be just the right man. If Michał can step out of his overly safe shell, there might be not only chocolate, but sex, too. Maybe chocolate-flavored sex. And if he’s lucky, maybe even love.

 

 

Review

This is really sweet and hot romance between two friends who meet on line. One of them is afraid to meet in person. And then they do.

 

The characters are lovely as in the chocolate and the setting in Sweden.

 

I love Hovart's writing style. I could have used a bit more love story before the epilogue but a fine romance overall.

Vanilla Beaned (#8)
Vanilla Beaned - Jenn McKinlay

This is the 8th book in the Cupcake Series. I divide time on this to get the book "read" by reading when I am not driving and listening when I am in my car driving somewhere. When the audio is playing the girls enjoy listening to the book. They enjoy several of the moments that just make you laugh. 

 

The Mel, Angie, and Tate are headed to Las Vegas, on the Elvis competition weekend (unknowingly) and they are there to meet the first person who wants to buy into their franchise of Fairy Tale Cupcakes. When they get to the hotel, they find out that this is the weekend that all the impersonators come to Las Vegas and so the hotel is filled with impersonators. Angie and Tate run out to explore and when it is time for the meeting with Stewart (the lawyer), Scott (the realtor) and Holly (the woman who wants to buy in), they are MIA and Mel is furious. She didn't want to franchise and when she sees Holly, who is drop dead gorgeous, she becomes mean and takes her anger out on Holly. They go to the location and finally, Holly has had enough and runs away crying. Stewart tells Mel that he knew she didn't want this, but that he didn't know she was going to be this mean. When she realizes that is exactly what she has been, she goes and talks with Holly and discovers that she does like her a little. When the location she wants to use blows up, injuring Scott severely and Stewart, she finds that she likes her even more. They eventually end up at Holly's home and learn some of the things that she hadn't told, her daughter and how she wants to have her more than just on Monday's (her off day). She is also being stalked and threatened and she is scared that her stalker is doing these accidents to her. The whole group comes together (even Marty and Oz and Manny come to town to help keep the girls safe). 

 

I laughed so hard at the very end of this book as something that happened in the book was also part of my life. I loved this book and can't wait to try some of these recipes.

This book is one of those books that hits home.  And not so much for the romantic aspects but from the connection that is made through words alone.  Only in recent history have people been able to connect with others via the internet…through on line chats, websites, dating apps, etc.  It is mind blowing honestly.  And yet we have all managed to make close friends this way.  And while some don’t turn out the way we ever intended the majority of the people we meet are true. 

 

This is one of those stories. 

 

The connection made on line and then the desire to meet in person…the uncertainty, the fear, the doubts.  All the feelings in this book felt real, felt genuine.  Mainly because they are all feelings I have had.  While I have not fallen in love with someone on line, I have still experienced all of these moments.  And when the communication stops for a period of time and the internal doubt lands to the point you begin to worry that you screwed up…that you said something that may have ruined things…they are real. 

 

This is one of those stories.

 

We all want something more. 

 

13Magnific: I miss you, Michał. How come I miss you when we’ve never been together? I want more than this. Please.

 

We all want happiness and we all fear our actions will damage our most precious relationships.

 

This is one of those stories.

 

And yes, there is chocolate and there is love and there is chocolate.  There is chocolate.  My heart was full.

 

**Highly Recommended**
