The successful owner of Sinful Temptations, a custom candy store, Natalie Semenova has a job she loves and the ability to pay for her sister’s school tuition. Natalie has everything she’s ever wanted – except a sex life. The lack of passion in her life brings back unwanted memories of Dane Falken, the man who broke her heart four years ago. Fate proves it has a sense of humor when two of Sinful Temptations’ huge orders get mixed up, delivering a box of five hundred chocolate penises meant for a bachelorette party to one of Dane’s corporate functions, and bringing the man himself to Natalie’s doorstep. Though her desire for him is stronger than ever, will Natalie be able to overcome past hurt enough to trust Dane with her heart once more?
Candy-Coated Passion proves that chocolate isn’t the only thing that’s sinfully sweet. Kat Alexis delivers an engaging reunion romance that is red hot.
Natalie is the kind of heroine who is easy to adore. She’s sensible, cares for her sister, is a successful businesswoman, and her strength is emphasized by the touch of vulnerability in her Dane inspires. I found myself immersed in the story because I so wanted to see Natalie find happiness, to overcome the heartbreak of the past and give Dane another chance. As for Dane, it’s understandable why he broke up with Natalie four years ago. What’s more, he realizes and accepts that he made a terrible mistake in doing so and it warmed my heart to see how much he truly loved Natalie.
Candy-Coated Passion positively sparked with the energy emanating from Dane and Natalie, which made the story incredibly entertaining. Candy-Coated Passion is a sexy, lively, romantic treat that charmed me from the first page to the last.
