Delicious was such a treat to read! I’m not usually into the whole baby mama drama, but I think this series is an exception because I’ve come to love all the characters in their own special way.

Alyssa is by far my favourite heroine in this entire series! I loved the fact that she understood her feelings for Luc from the very beginning and knew exactly what she wanted to do. She had ambitions, brains and an inner strength that I really admired. Her past is a haunting one but she still is able to remain strong and run two businesses with ease. I admired her courage to stand up against her fears and her strength to hang on when things got tough for her. She’s got all the makings for being the perfect heroine!

Luc was also one of my favourite characters in Decadent! There were some moments when I was frustrated by his choices, but that’s all part of the experience because we readers know things that both of them didn’t. There are a lot of misunderstandings in this one and I just kept wishing that they would TALK TO EACH OTHER FOR ONCE! I was cheering for them since the beginning and while their story was a rollercoaster ride, it was a great one!

I’m sensing a trend here in this series. Not only is there wicked hot sex, but there’s also a lot of crazy people who like to stalk women! In this book alone, there are three stalkers! But in all honestly, I’ll admit I really, really enjoyed finding out who the stalkers were. It fits with the storyline and definitely makes it more fast-paced and end-of-your-seat good!

And then there’s Tyler, whom I just adored! I am so happy he’s going to be getting his own book and I cannot wait to see what Black has in store for him!

I love love LOVE this series!!!

This picture reminds me of Luc and Alyssa, though he’s got longer hair and Alyssa is blonde. But the kitchen setting is perfect! MMm mmm, DELISH!

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m a 26 year old obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I’m also a reviewer for FreshFiction.com. Over there, I’m also a columnist. I have a column called Into the Night that discusses the latest and greatest news in the Paranormal Romance and Urban Fantasy genre. I also work as a virtual assistant for authors.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, to New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and fashion or dreaming about boys and beaches. My love for all things David Gandy is well documented on the Internet and we’ll be getting married shortly. I’ll be sure to send you an invite to the wedding! ;P Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
