When it comes to other people’s lives, Elana Verdad is an expert. As a licensed psychologist and life coach, she helps people overcome obstacles. Her own life, on the other hand, is a disaster. Her lover left her for a man, so she drove over his mailbox accidentally on purpose. Now, not only did the judge take away her driver’s license, he also assigned her to community service at the local women’s prison. In what may be her worst idea ever, Elana decides to crash their wedding.

Kelly Miller may not understand her brother’s rush to marry his girlfriend, but when he asks her to bake his wedding cake, it’s not as if she can refuse. She’s in the catering business after all. At the wedding, she meets a beautiful, complicated, and seriously damaged woman. Although Kelly knows it’s crazy, she’s drawn to her nonetheless.

Despite the reasons they shouldn’t be together, there’s still an undeniable something between them. All they need is a chance to enjoy their slice of the cake.

My View:

Kelly is a beautiful baker. One day her brother, David, surprises her with the news he is getting married and asks her to do the cake. She is not happy about the wedding since she has never heard of this woman before but agrees to make the cake.

Elana is a sexy life coach whose ex, Bree, left her to marry a man. For some reason she has been sent an invitation to the wedding and she is unable to stay away. Once there she locks onto Kelly. She confesses her reason for being there and while it is hard to watch Bree get married to David, Kelly understands and stays by her side. Sparks fly between the two women but is this just some harmless fun or is there something more to it?

Cake is such a sweet story and not just because of the baked goodies. I truly enjoyed it very much. The writing was solid, the plot good (I do wonder about where the parents were during the wedding but I went with it), and the characters so engaging (no pun intended this time). I loved them both. I liked how many emotions they shared and experienced. This story was very gentle and heart warming with the exception of the sex scenes. They were some of the most erotic, fast and frenzied, smoking hot and VERY pleasing I’ve seen in quite awhile! Ms Belle has outdone herself. Read with soft romantic music in the background, this was the perfect book to cuddle up to on a lazy day.
