Treat With Caution (Treats to Tempt You #1) by Serenity Woods

Treat with Caution (Treats to Tempt You Book 1)


An enemies-to-lovers sexy romance.

Tasha Wilde has spotted the perfect site for the Treats to Tempt You confectionery shop she's planning to run with her best friend, Maisey. It's the ideal size and location, right on the waterfront in Doubtless Bay, New Zealand. The only fly in the melted chocolate is Maisey's brother, Kole. He wants the shop for his photography business, and he's about to sign the lease.

Tasha and Kole Graham have trod the wafer-thin line between friends and enemies since they were teenagers. Privately, she acknowledges Kole has grown up into a fine figure of a man. Okay, to be honest, he's so sexy he often dismantles the speech center of her brain. But he's still the most irritating guy on Earth.

Kole tries to think of Tasha as just his sister's best friend, but it's getting harder and harder. Literally. And he's having trouble hiding it. So when their friends suggest a bet with the shop as the prize, and it means he can get his hands on Tasha, he's quick to agree. The Shakespearean-style scheme? To get the other person to fall in love with them. In eight days.

Both are confident their attraction is only physical. Both are going to get into trouble. But who will win the bet on Midsummer night?

Warning: Sultry and steamy, with rising temperatures. And the sub-tropical weather's pretty hot too. Adults only.


Treat With Caution is just a fun, light read. The premise is kind of ridiculous, but if you just go with it it is fun.

Tasha and her best friend Maisey have been planning on opening a treats shop. They found the perfect location for it! Only problem? Maisey's brother Kole is about to sign the lease for it. Tasha and Kole have never really gotten along. They are always irritated and arguing with each other, and one lunchtime they come up with a plan. Tasha and Kole agree to date for a week and whoever falls for the other first loses the shop location. No problem right? I mean Tasha hates Kole, she just wants to see the other him that his dates get to see. He has to be putting on a front. How else does he get so many ladies? And Kole...well Kole is just curious what Tasha will be like.

Right from the start it is obvious that these two have had feelings for each other for sometime, even if they didn't realize it themselves. I did like all the talk of Kole's other persona he must put on on dates and stuff. This bet quickly turns into something real, but both are afraid the other is only in it for the shop. There are lots of miscommunications, or lack of communication, that causes problems, but it was fun to read. Everything works out in the end and it is just a great, light summer read.
