Served Hot (Portland Heat #1)
This book was an ok read for me. It was incredibly slow…and I was having trouble staying focused.
I needed this book to pick up and that didn’t happen for me until 50% in.I loved Robby. He wasn’t use to taking the lead in a relationship. But he was willing to do it for David. Robby was extremely patient with David.
But… I also felt bad for Robby. David was so standoffish! And, the way he acted was just so horrible. I always felt Robby was throwing himself at David. Instead of things happening naturally.
Like when they slept together for the first time.
If a guy would have hinted for me to go home after… That I had been dating for a while…
I would have grabbed my clothes and ran out of there!
(I even felt that in my stomach…it just dropped!)
Not…. Try and hint to stay by saying I make a good breakfast to try and make him change his mind.
I would have a little more self respect for myself than that!
Because… even he the changed his mind… It would have been because I had to plead my case!…lol
And… that wouldn’t feel good at all!
And I was constantly feeling like that about David and Robby.
I was glad when Robby finally took a stand for himself.
But…. I thought he should have done that way sooner!
I think that was my main issue I had with this book.
David couldn’t let go of his ex. And, that wasn’t really fare to Robby.
Another little issue I had was transitions to the next subject in this story. I was reading about them at Easter dinner.. Then, they were taking about paint! I had to reread that part again…. To make sure I didn’t miss anything. That happened through out this novella.
Overall… This was an ok read for me. I would read more books by this author.

Baked Fresh (Portland Heat #2)
-Release date is April 14, 2015-
From its famous coffee to the mouthwatering fare at its cafés, restaurants, and bakeries, Portland, Oregon, has a lot to whet the appetite, including the hard-working men who serve it all up—hot, fresh, and ready to go—with no reservations…
Vic Degrassi is a baker on the rise, and it’s all thanks to his rare ability to make—and keep—his New Year’s resolutions. Whether it’s losing weight, giving up smoking, or graduating from culinary school, Vic goes after what he wants—and gets it. This year? He wants Robin Dawson, the sweet-hearted hottie who volunteers with him at the local homeless shelter. When he learns that Robin is suddenly single after being unceremoniously dumped, Vic is more than happy to offer a shoulder to cry on—or at least a fresh-baked pastry to bite into. But it’s been a long time since Vic’s gone on a date, and he’s nervous about risking his friendship with Robin. So when their flirtation turns into a steamy night together, Vic and Robin have to figure out if they’re friends with benefits or lovers in the making, and if Robin is ready for something more than just a rebound. There’s only one way to find out: turn up the heat…
Emotionally complex, sexy, and funny stories are her favorites both to read and to write. In between searching out dark heroes to redeem, she works a rewarding day job and wrangles two toddlers.
