The ‘Sweet Days, Sugary Nights’ candy conference is definitely yielding some delicious results for attendee Gary – but not the calorie loaded kind. His treats come in the form of one small bakery owner whose shop produced scents that pulled him and his companions in off the street just to find out what she was making.
Felicity isn’t about to give out her secret recipe for sweet buns but there’s no denying that Gary’s exactly what she needs to spice things up in the bedroom. She’s not looking for a permanent relationship and since he’s only in town for the conference they can indulge their mutual passion with no regrets.
Gary vaguely remembers wandering around Times Square and ending up at a bar with some of the other attendees of the conference… however he’s drawing a blank as to how he ended up buck naked in a room he doesn’t recognize with a woman’s candy-apple red high-heeled shoe dangling from his toes. Fortunately Felicity is more than willing to fill in the blanks. Once Gary begins to sober up and finds out exactly what happened to his clothes he begins to consider other possibilities – after all Felicity is a very attractive woman and he can’t help but think of her in delectable candy terms.
As Gary and Felicity embark on a sexual relationship they begin to divulge their hopes, dreams and emotional baggage and Gary soon realizes that Felicity is much more than a beautiful face – she’s living her dream. If he’s ever going to achieve his goals and get out of the corporate world and into a kitchen creating recipes of his own then he needs to take some risks.
There’s something decidedly sexy about mixing food and sex and Marilu Mann’s SWEET BUN captures the appeal of such erotic play perfectly. Gary and Felicity definitely spark off each other and there is certainly plenty of emotional appeal to their budding relationship. Gary’s indecision about whether to stick with his career or follow his dream gives him an appeal I hadn’t expected and Felicity’s encouragement really shows just how perfect she is for him.
SWEET BUNS is one of several books being released through Ellora’s Cave which are dedicated to Lara Anne Punches, a young woman whose life was cut tragically short. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to her family.
