She won’t be satisfied with just one bite... Art student-slash-bike messenger Wren Davis pursues what she wants. And what she wants now is Gregori Ivanov, rock star of the Seattle art scene. With his tattoos, piercings and sensual sneer, Gregori is the ultimate bad boy. Wren’s gotten to know the man beneath the body art, too—and it only makes her crave him more. But Gregori loves women like he loves cake and champagne—intensely, but only for the moment. And after Wren experiences just how scorching sex with Gregori is, she’s determined to show him that just one taste won’t be enough..

I had a good laugh reading this book, it's a cute story. I liked all the characters, Gregori sounds like a good guy; I really liked Wren, she was really well rounded as a character, she had a full life and allowed Gregori to be a part of it, but not the main focus, which I thought was a great way for them to come together.

Wren and Gregori; even their names are amazing, yeah I loved this story. Wren's a strong character, who wanted to know Gregori, but wasn't willing to sacrifice who she was for the attention of Gregori, who is a big time artist.

Gregori is an awesome character as well, he'd made mistakes before and didn't want to make the same ones with Wren, he would rather have her as a friend than chance losing her all together.  So he takes forever to even make his attraction known to her.

The story was well written and flowed well. Considering it's only 112 pages, Lauren managed to put in a very well rounded story with great characters.  It packed quite a punch, the emotional upheaval, the leap of faith needed to create their relationship was amazing. I truly enjoyed it. Can't wait to read more from the new Cosmo Red Reads, these should be great!!


Happy Reading
