This latest offering in Sabrina York's Tryst Island series will have you wondering if happily ever after is going to happen!
Tara Romano owns a bakery, Stud Muffin, and, until recently, has enjoyed a successful business. However, when food critic Devlin Fox only gives her bakery three burps on his blog, criticizing her for not having gluten-free goods, her business drops off and she is suddenly left to wonder how she is going to pay the bills. She gets her revenge on Devlin, but it only leaves her feeling empty and wanting more. She struggles to get past her commitment issues while teasing Devlin with dreams of cream puffs.
While Devlin regrets his blog posting, he stands by his decision. He wants a commitment from Tara but she is only interested in having sex. At first, she won't even tell him it's her. He realizes that is not enough for him and turns her proposal down, later changing his mind and he would rather have her that little bit than not at all. When Devlin finally finds out what her name is, he starts to see a lot of things in his life differently, and as they spice up their lives daring each other to do different, kinky things like have sex in a movie theater and anywhere else they can have it, Tara begins to run scared from the feelings he evokes in her.
This book was brilliant! I loved Tara and Devlin both. They were fun people who grabbed life by the horns and took it for a ride. While Devlin finds himself reassessing certain things in his personal life, he accepts that he has been wrong and ensures he changes. What I really liked about this book was that, for once, it wasn't the guy running scared from commitment but the girl. It's a great twist on things and my favorite part was when things became clear to Tara. Of course, I really hope that at some point, Ms. York makes Richie (a frat boy who has never grown up) suffer for the way he treats the girls! I can't say it enough, I am loving this series and eagerly await the next book in it.
