The only thing better than cake is cake with a side of orgasms.

Dylan James has no expectations when it comes to relationships. He uses women for sex and they use him for his money and power. It’s quid pro quo and he’s good with that. It works.

Beth Harrison has been burned. She’s tired of the lies and the game playing that men bring and has buried herself in her passion—baking which keeps her out of the reach of heartbreak. As she begins her career as a TV baker, a new world opens up to her.

Dylan and Beth both know that casual sex is all about giving what you need to get what you want.

Except that sometimes you give more than you need to and get everything you ever wanted.


I received a copy of this book from Smith Publicity in exchange for an honest review.

I have not read a book from Louise Bay before. However, I took a chance on this book because the blurb was really very intriguing. I like troubled pasts and alpha heroes who fall in love in unexpected place with unexpected people. That’s basically what happened to this book’s hero. His character is a sexy, successful man who falls in love with the heroine. The heroine, on the other hand, has her own demons and struggles.

I think the character with the most development in this story is the hero. He went from being a man who enjoyed a no-strings kind of relationship to a man who was very much in love with a woman. The heroine’s character also developed and grew in the story, but it wasn’t as fun to watch as the hero’s. The story has a steady pacing. There are some things I could easily predict, but I still definitely enjoyed reading the book. While this is my first book from this author, I can now certainly say that this will surely not be the last.


USA Today bestselling author, Louise Bay writes sexy, contemporary romance novels – the kind she likes to read.

Her books include the novels Faithful and Hopeful and the novella series’ The Empire State Series and What the Lightning Sees. The novels and together the series are stand-alone although there are some overlapping characters.

Ruined by romantic mini-series of the eighties, Louise loves all things romantic. There’s not enough of it in real life so she disappears into the fictional worlds in books and films.
Louise loves the rain, the West Wing, London, days when she doesn’t have to wear make-up, being on her own, being with friends, elephants and champagne.
She loves to hear from readers so get in touch!
