Review: "Cake" by Nicole Reed

Cake_SpotlightBanner  
Synopsis
 
Would you be willing to make a mess of your life to get exactly what you want?
 
Kylie Lord has known Trent Moss and Dray Savage since college. Trent, the smart and kind-hearted humanitarian has had her heart from the moment they met, but someone else always has his. Dray is an arrogant professional football player who happens to be Trent’s best friend and Kylie’s nemesis “with benefits.”
Five years after graduation, Kylie is commanding the world with a new image and a successful business; however, she lacks the one thing she wants and the one thing she can never have. That is, until one fateful night when Kylie decides to go after all of her forbidden fantasies and risk everything.
Two men, completely different and poles apart, but together they are her idea of perfection. One can only offer her tonight and the other forever, but can Kylie settle for just one man, or can she have her cake and eat it too?

Kyle is beautiful not only on the outside, but on the inside too. She's a Southern Socialite known for her couture boutique and lack of romantic life. There are plenty of men who vie for her attention, but only one man who holds her heart, Trent. The moment she saw him in college she fell...fast and hard. The problem? The timing is always wrong. He has a horrible track record with women and Kylie never finds the right time. Will she ever get her chance at her heart's desire?
 
Just when Kylie thinks she can take no more, disaster strikes. Her "enemy" Dray is injured and needs help. Trent being his only family and on the other side of the world calls Kylie for help. She begrudgingly accepts and Bam! No one expects all the reprecussions that will happen as a result.
When an attractions starts between Dray and Kylie, sparks will fly. An agreement is made, it's pure and simple. Things can be simple can't they?
 
Who will be chosen if anyone gets to choose?
Will anyone be happy again?
 
The drama ensues in this romance. The only thing better than the hook-ups in this book is the comedy. This book is laugh out loud funny. I adore Kylie's friend Madison. She is simply hilarious. The dynamics between the two are like sisters. They freely speak their mind no matter how crazy or crude.
 
As for the men in the book they are enough to drive you Cray-Cray. Dray is sex on a stick, but has emotional issues lying just on the surface. Commitment is new to him as are any type of feelings beyond Wam Bam, Thank you Mam. I love his character and his sass though. There's a Depth there that you can just feel hiding. As for Trent, he's the type you love to hate. He's a good looking do-gooder can't stay in one place long. He's out to save the planet while breaking hearts everywhere. His character honestly annoyed me. Then there was Jason, the poor guy just has bad timing. I really wondered if he was behind some of the things happening. *Not going to say what it spoil it. You'll know what I'm talking about when you read the book. ;-)*
 
I absolutely loved this book!
It's beyond a 5 Star with it's romance and laughter.
There are SO many dynamics to this book. It just doesn't disappoint. I really hope there is another book. I want to know what happens with Madison.
Lil Rip or Nick? Please, We need to know.

Excerpt
 
 
“Do you feel that, Kylie?” He continues to caress my arm with his hand. “That’s power running between you and me. I never imagined it would be so strong, so intense. Can you even conceive what my body rubbing against yours well feel like? Please unlike either one of us has ever experienced. Sex in its greatest form.”
His words hypnotize me, seduce me, and demolish my inhibitions so that even my common sense agrees with what he is saying. I’ve never wanted sex as much as I want it with Dray at this moment. In my head, I can see images of us entwined together, his dark against my light skin. The sight, in my mind’s eye, so clear, so erotic, that my breathing becomes erratic just with the thought. Closing my eyes, I feel his fingers glide to my breasts, circling the tip through my clothes. My clit throbs in tune with his movements almost as if he is touching me there. Dray grasps my nipple tightly as he pulls and squeezes. The dual motion overwhelms my senses, and an orgasm overcomes me, rippling up and through my body. Clenching my legs together, I moan as I ride it out. My body shakes, tingling with the aftermath of what just happened, and what I need to be happening again; however, sanity returns with me still sitting on the side of the couch. Opening my eyes, Dray stares at me like he knows my every thought. At least now, he has a supreme satisfied smile on his mouth and his shorts are in a superior tent out front.
“Damn girl. That is about the hottest sight I’ve ever seen. Had you been butt-naked, I think I would have exploded right along with you.”
