    Very fun contemporary novella set in Laguna Beach Micah owns a raw food cafe and Quentin moves in next door selling cupcakes Fortunately, Micah doesn t figure out who Quentin is until they ve already gotten attached to one another Once they do, there s some predictable angst, but it resolved quickly.There some cross dressing in this, which is fine, and the sparks certainly fly between the two MCs I enjoyed all the ancillary characters There s a whole lot of sex for a fairly short read, thou Very fun contemporary novella set in Laguna Beach Micah owns a raw food cafe and Quentin moves in next door selling cupcakes Fortunately, Micah doesn t figure out who Quentin is until they ve already gotten attached to one another Once they do, there s some predictable angst, but it resolved quickly.There some cross dressing in this, which is fine, and the sparks certainly fly between the two MCs I enjoyed all the ancillary characters There s a whole lot of sex for a fairly short read, though, and it s definitely feels like a light story that could have benefited from further development and fleshing out Still, it was a fun Valentine s Day treat

    A cute read with likeable characters and an interesting cross dressing element Micah owns a raw food vegan restaurant and Quentin a decadent cupcake bakery That s almost the Montagues and Capulets right there This is definitely fast and furious Some hot sex mixed with diametrically opposed ways of life Thankfully the men learn to bend a little to see the other s viewpoints but I m happy to say that Micah stays true to his raw food vegan ways.

    3.2 StarsManties Dresses Best part of the whole story.I do have to say that Micah s militant stance on anything non vegan, non raw food got a bit irritating and at times high handed I appreciated Queen s bridge building baking gesture although that concession wasn t necessary IMHO , and Micah finally pulling that stick out of his ass.The hiding and secrecy didn t make much sense given some of the things Queen s sassy Southern Grandma said to him that hinted she already knew he was at least 3.2 StarsManties Dresses Best part of the whole story.I do have to say that Micah s militant stance on anything non vegan, non raw food got a bit irritating and at times high handed I appreciated Queen s bridge building baking gesture although that concession wasn t necessary IMHO , and Micah finally pulling that stick out of his ass.The hiding and secrecy didn t make much sense given some of the things Queen s sassy Southern Grandma said to him that hinted she already knew he was at least gay if not fond of women s clothing, too , which made the half assed blackmail aspect of the plot feel a little ridiculous Also, never underestimate the intuitive powers of a Sassy Southern Grandma But I LOVED the Anti Valentine s Day orgy I would actually read a couple of stories from some of the other characters mentioned or rather glossed over if it included them meeting at this party There should be a millionbooks with Anti V day orgies Just sayin

    Hearts and Flour is a sweet and sexy story, with so many food quotes I m still trying to count them all 3.5 stars This review was originally posted on un Conventional Bookviews Hearts and Flour is a sweet and sexy story, with so many food quotes I m still trying to count them all Micah and Quentin happen to meet each other at a un Valentine party for single people while Micah has always known he s gay, there is something about one of the girls at the party that really touches him, and Hearts and Flour is a sweet and sexy story, with so many food quotes I m still trying to count them all 3.5 stars This review was originally posted on un Conventional Bookviews Hearts and Flour is a sweet and sexy story, with so many food quotes I m still trying to count them all Micah and Quentin happen to meet each other at a un Valentine party for single people while Micah has always known he s gay, there is something about one of the girls at the party that really touches him, and he understand why when he realizes Quentin sometimes likes to dress like a girl They have a very hot and heavy encounter, and they both wantHowever, Micah just got out of a very toxic relationship, and Quentin isn t exactly out of the closet yet neither as gay, nor as a man who enjoys women s clothing and make up every now and then Add to those difficulties that Micah has a small raw food restaurant, where he tries to convert his clients into becoming healthier, and Quentin makes delicious cupcakes that are as far from raw and healthy as they can be.Just as their relationship is in the starting block, the things that can make things difficult for them happen as well Micah s toxic ex blackmails him, and so, Quentin thought it was all over before it started Added to that was the fact that Micah understood that it was Quentin s cupcakes that tempted his clients to not stay healthy, and he had a small melt down over that.Heart and Flours has some really great characters, and I enjoyed Micah and Quentin a lot, however, Quentin s grandmother was the best of all She, of course, had known for a long time both that Quentin was gay, and that he liked women s clothing I love it when characters in a story have the support they need, even if they might not always know it in advance This story also has Ms Lain s trademark good humor, and that was good, because there was also a tad too much drama for my taste, even if everything turned out well in the end.Written in third person point of view and past tense, the story flowed easily, and Hearts and Flour is a pretty quick read If you re a Lain fan, this book is a must And if you haven t had the pleasure to meet her characters yet, this is definitely a good place to start before you go on to her different series.Micah put a finger under Quentin s chin I don t think anything about you could disappoint me I hope that s true He so did Hey You look lower than Michael Phelp s resting heart rate What s going on Kathy peered over his shoulder from behind Yeah I let Dharmaram move back in He cringed He d been avoiding telling her because he knew You what Jesus Fucking Christ Ma am, uh, you referred to me as Quentin s boyfriend Quentin put a finger on Micah s arm Shh He covered Quentin s finger with his hand No shh He looked back at Mary Beth Can you tell me what you meant She smiled Well dear, where I come from a boyfriend is someone who comes to call and pays attention and steals kisses in dark corners and maybeif the opportunity arises

    I ve been reading way too many angst filled romances with jerky heroes and too much boring sex, along with a few books with very wordy prose and it was beginning to exhaust me I needed something uncomplicated and a little sweet to make me feel better about the book world and to avoid another reading slump I d been saving this one for the perfect moment because I m a moody reader and I heard that it was a bit on the sweet side I usually prefer darker books but every now and then I need a break I ve been reading way too many angst filled romances with jerky heroes and too much boring sex, along with a few books with very wordy prose and it was beginning to exhaust me I needed something uncomplicated and a little sweet to make me feel better about the book world and to avoid another reading slump I d been saving this one for the perfect moment because I m a moody reader and I heard that it was a bit on the sweet side I usually prefer darker books but every now and then I need a break Hearts and Flour is very sweet, just look at that cover, but it was exactly what I needed to read to knock me out of the blahs.Micah is a raw vegan who has everything under control Or so he thinks He s dating a handsome yoga instructor, he runs a healthy eatery and prides himself on helping others eat well and live healthy lives He thinks he s doing a good job until a steady customer shows up to order her healthy grass shake and he catches her devouring a cupcake He s shaken and kind of angry Apparently a cupcake shop has opened up a few doors down from his shop and it s serving up white flour and sugary poison to his healthy customers and undoing all of his hard work He heads home and finds his lover in his bed with another man He kicks him to the curb and cuddles up with his 17 year old cat awww Soon after, still pissed off, he agrees to go to an anti Valentine s party where he hooks up with a beautiful man, dressed as a beautiful woman, who he only knows as Queen and they have some amazing sex They also have one of those instant you belong with me moments and can t get each other off the brain.But Queen is actually Quentin and Quentin if you haven t guessed is the baker of the poisonous treats Quentin is also still very much in the closet and fears he will break his Grandmother s heart if she ever discovers that he s gay and enjoys dressing up as a woman She raised him and he doesn t want to lose her love but he can t stop seeing Micah either, even when Micah acts like a judgy prick when he discovers what Quentin does for a living.I really enjoyed this book, even if or because it was so very sweet and the characters called everyone dear even the loser of an ex does it Every time I d hear dear this dearie spewing guy would pop into my head and it would make me smile Rumpelstiltskin Demotivational by LaDracul on deviantART Micah s not always the brightest bulb in the room and he has a few unlikable moments, I m not going to lie, but the author doesn t drag them out too long and made him realize the error of his ways before I became annoyed And, well, there had to be some conflict, right Quentin was adorable but he wasn t na ve and I liked the combination Oh face it, Queen, you thought with your cock You didn t really know the man One date and a couple great fucks do not a relationship make. I haven t a bad thing to say about him His relationship with his granny was lovely and well developed and I was hoping that everything would work out perfectly for him in the end You might like this if you can deal with a little sugar and a lot of lust and want a book that will make you feel good when it ends The FTC makes me declare that I received a copy of this book from the Publisher

    3.75 rounded up.This is just the right type book to slip in between those emotional wringers Quck Lighter weight read , sweet and easy on the angst but with some nice hot sexy interludes this isn t going to tax your brain cells but it will leave you with a little bit of the warm and fuzzies The blurb pretty much covers what you need to know plot wise so its pointless rehashing that It s predictable but sometimes predictable is what you want and I ve said before, if its good who cares Mi 3.75 rounded up.This is just the right type book to slip in between those emotional wringers Quck Lighter weight read , sweet and easy on the angst but with some nice hot sexy interludes this isn t going to tax your brain cells but it will leave you with a little bit of the warm and fuzzies The blurb pretty much covers what you need to know plot wise so its pointless rehashing that It s predictable but sometimes predictable is what you want and I ve said before, if its good who cares Micah and Quentin are very endearing and the secondary characters support the story nicely enough, especially Quentins grandma Mary Beth a real sweetie and Micahs dreaded ex a less than spiritual yoga teacher boo hiss I was a bit disappointed that the food feud didn t featureand causea bitST and friction but overall I enjoyed it just for the fact that for once I wasn t either sobbing uncontrollably or throwing my Kindle down in exasperation The most this brought out was a smile Any book with a cat called Furtwangler has to be OK in my opinion Lol Passed a couple of hours very nicely

    3.65 stars This was an adorable, sweet read with a cross dressing twist The blurb is pretty much the story I appreciated the lack of converting from both MCs Even though vegan food is Micah s religion, we found out why he became vegan and he became flexible enough to accept Quentin for who he was I like that Quentin also didn t try to convert Micah and he was inspired to introduce raw vegan cupcakes in his bakery There was quite a bit of hot sex in this novella I really like Quentin s gra 3.65 stars This was an adorable, sweet read with a cross dressing twist The blurb is pretty much the story I appreciated the lack of converting from both MCs Even though vegan food is Micah s religion, we found out why he became vegan and he became flexible enough to accept Quentin for who he was I like that Quentin also didn t try to convert Micah and he was inspired to introduce raw vegan cupcakes in his bakery There was quite a bit of hot sex in this novella I really like Quentin s grandmother who was the inspiration for the bakery and Furtw ngler the cat with his cat wisdom Overall, I enjoyed this It s perfect for Valentine s day
