I absolutely adored this book, I think I love the writing style of this author, and it reminds me of the romance stories I used to read when I was a teenage girl.
Polly and Luke are the sweetest couple, but not in a sappy way, they are just beautiful souls that found each other in the perfect moment! I love how Polly brought fun and more sense of living to Luke's life and how he saw love as something good to try when he met her. He was literally giving up his life to work, he needed to shake and live a little! Sweet Polly helped him in the best way!
I guess I channeled my inner candy fan self, because this is not your regular romance of a girl with a hippie vein falling in love with a CEO, you get to see the scientific side of how to make candy and I loved it! I think I can challenge people now to tell me how to do a nougat, they wouldn't know of course, unless they were candy manufacturers *bad joke* anyway, from the love story, to the candies, to the lovely banter of these two specially Luke with his funny side, Oh those silly jokes about hitting on Polly!, I feel like I was living in a movie! The descriptions of the places and the style of Nina Lane are by far one of the best treasures I've found here in the book world!
Also, how exciting is when she mentions MY CITY in her book!!! I was like OMG QUÉ!!!! Wonderful, wonderful!
*I received and arc in exchange of an honest review*
She wanted this man to kiss her. She wanted to feel the pressure of his lips, his body pressed against hers. She wanted to know what it felt like to be kissed by a man who radiated sexual heat and energy, who smelled like all sorts of manly things like spice and musk, a man who would know exactly how to treat a woman . . .
His gaze skimmed over her face and lingered on her lips. Her pulse sped up.
Do it, do it! Kiss me.
His hands loosened from her waist. He started to back away.
Without thinking, Polly reached up, grabbed his collar, and yanked his head down to hers.
Surprise flashed in his expression the instant before she kissed him.
Or, attempted to kiss him. Because he’d started to move away at the exact same instant, she
ended up smashing her lips against his chin. She sucked in a breath and pulled back, staring at
his mouth. She took aim and went in for the kill.
Her lips crashed against his, hot and damp. Omigod. She was totally kissing Mr. Hottie.
Moreover, she was doing it with her mouth open, and holy God, his tongue swept across hers, and he tasted like salt and scotch, and shivers of pure lust rained through her body, and she wanted to keep kissing him forever and ever . . .
Resistance suddenly coiled through him. His hands closed around her arms, and he pulled away. A murmur of protest escaped her. She tightened her grip on him, her back hitting the wall again as she forced him closer. He lifted his head. His mouth broke away from hers, his breath still hot on her lips.
“Honey, I’m not going to . . .” he started.
“Oh, kiss me some more,” Polly breathed, standing on her tiptoes to brush her lips against his.
“Please . . .”
Boldly, she flicked her tongue out to caress his lower lip. He groaned, bracing his hands on the wall behind her as he lowered his head again. Heat exploded through her. His kiss became deeper, more possessive, his arms caging her in and trapping her between the wall and his body.
She gasped in shock at the sensation of his muscled body pressed fully against hers, her breasts crushed to his hard chest, his powerful thigh edging between hers . . .
Oh God. Was that . . . ?
She whimpered, letting her head fall back as he plundered her mouth with his.
“Christ in heaven, you taste amazing,” he whispered, trailing his lips over her cheek and down to her neck. “So fucking sweet . . .”
