“CAKE was just the right combination of engaging storyline and chemistry to keep me turning the pages and definitely one of my favorite short stories of the year!” ~Under the Covers
If there is a Lauren Dane book I won’t like, then I haven’t found it. Her heroines are always strong and independent and they fit perfectly with the Cosmo Red Hot Reads series.
In CAKE we meet Wren. She’s an artist and a bike messenger. During her day job she’s met, if you can call their encounters while she delivers packages to him met, Gregori. He’s the epitome of the bohemian bad boy. A very successful artist himself, with tats, piercings and a mohawk. With a reputation for being a ladies’ man and just an all around intense individual. The vibes come off of him to enrapture anyone in his net. And Wren isn’t immune.
Gregori has been a bit jaded by his past. His ex-wife, the floozies that want him only because of who he is. He’s become what they expect him to be. But Wren will draw the real him out. Because she’s only interested in him.
A bad boy hero that’s to die for and melt at his feet? A strong heroine that knows exactly what she wants? CAKE was just the right combination of engaging storyline and chemistry to keep me turning the pages and definitely one of my favorite short stories of the year!
In true Lauren Dane fashion, CAKE is sensual, engaging and emotional. If you are looking for a quick read that will make you fall in love with the characters from the beginning, then definitely give this a try! You won’t regret it.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!
I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
