(A Prequel Novella to LOVE, CHOCOLATE, AND BEER)
Man, oh man, was he in trouble...
If the girl-next-door-had an unpredictable, feisty twin sister, this woman would be her. Though she'd doused it quickly, a sizzling, ultra-feminine awareness had flared in her eyes in that brief moment they'd met his, along with a sweet blush she'd fought with adorably, stubborn defiance. Damn, she was cute. And intriguing. With that quiet, kitten gaze of hers still mulishly refusing to look his way again, she was drawing him in, hook, line, and sinker.
It was bad enough that the faint scent of one of her dark ales was lingering on his lips in that sexier-than-sin sort of way, but candying it atop steamy eyes and a gentlemanly sweet center to boot was just plain unfair. He was cowboy-in-the-city sexy with a laughing smile and all sorts of promised temptations radiating from him. And he always smelled like chocolate. With his scorching hot gaze, he was completely lethal to everything that kept her tame.
The night Luke and Dani met, they really should have gotten each other's last names. More importantly? Each other's occupations.
See how the chocolate vs. beer throwdown between chocolatier Luke Bradford and beer brewing beauty Dani Dobson gets started in this prequel novella to LOVE, CHOCOLATE, AND BEER.
A Little Combustible Chemisry is a great start to Dani and Luke's story! I cannot wait to start reading Love, Chocolate and Beer! I can't wait to see how much fun Dani and Luke are going to be!
This prequel is part of their book now, but I still wanted to write a quick review for it separately. In this prequel you meet Dani and Luke, Rylan and Quinn, and Isaac and Xoey. Man Dani and Luke are just so hot together. Luke is a romantic romantic. Flowers, chocolates, the whole nine yards. Dani not so much. She would much rather get out and have some fun then have a romantic dinner in. When they first meet sparks fly. They are both so drawn to the other. By the end of this story they have their little competition going. Which is more romantic, beer or chocolate? It is going to be fun to watch how this all plays out, especially since neither of them can really keep their head around the other. They are both so drawn to each other, but so on it as well. Dani is feisty and fun, Luke can keep up with her and it is going to be a fun ride. Off to read their whole story!
