Must Love Cakes by Virginia Nelson

Must Love Cakes
Must Love Cakes by Virginia Nelson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Must Love Cakes was a quick and sexy read as Carolyn finds out that her two best friends may want more than just friendship. When Carolyn gets dumped by her current boyfriend via text [insert nasty derogatory thought about boyfriend], she calls in Grady and Ben to accompany her to an important social outing so that she doesn’t have to face her ex alone. Because of the conversations between Grady and Ben that the reader is privy to, it was not a surprise that they did so nor that they were more than happy to play mind games with her ex when he acts like a jerk during the party. And while the public make-out session was hot, Carolyn fled the party to go home alone because she couldn’t bear finding out whether or not the guys meant it – and she wasn’t sure which answer she really wanted.

As a plus-size gal, Carolyn has plenty of insecurities about her looks and cannot believe that her super-hot besties would be attracted to her at all. Because of this, I was excited for her when she realized that the guys really did want her; at the same time, I understood her reservations when she thought she had to choose between them. With the way both of the guys stood up for her and how much their friendship meant to all of them, I got why she wasn’t willing to risk it, especially with the guys’ track record. Thankfully for everyone (the reader included) Ben and Grady were willing to talk about the issue – or stop talking about it and act on it in Grady’s case. Once they were able to make Carolyn understand that they were interested in a relationship between the three of them and how very little would change from what it currently was, the sex scene that followed was both sweet and hot as can be. Unfortunately this is a novella and the story ended far too soon for my liking – mainly because I wanted to see more of the trio, bedroom time included. While Must Love Cakes is the third book in the Watkins Pond series, I read it as a standalone and enjoyed it without having read the prior books in the series. If you’re looking for a short and steamy ménage romance, then you might want to check this one out.

I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
