Chocolate and sex—two of life’s most decadent pleasures—are the marketing tools Dana uses to lure customers to her erotic candy store. Her sexy dancing gets her customers hot and bothered for her confections, and Trevor, owner of Trevor’s Treasures, realizes he’d rather be on her side than competing against her. He pursues her with wit, charm and an offer to model nude for one of her statues.
Dana can’t believe her luck when she discovers the hunky ex-model has an identical twin brother. Little does she know that her strong attraction to Trevor will cause conflict between the two brothers, especially because she wants both of them to model nude.
When the competition gets hot, Dana is caught in the middle. What’s a girl to do?
“The sign on the door to Decadent Delights read, “Mature shoppers only. Anyone under eighteen not allowed.” Can you imagine seeing a candy shop with a disclaimer like that?
From the first paragraph until the end I was hooked. I mean how many women could turn down chocolate and a hot man in the same story? The tale started off at a fast pace and did not let up until the end. What I found so entertaining was that Trevor Stanford, the owner of Trevor’s Treasure, the other candy store in town, was Dana’s competitor. I thought it was going to make for a shaky relationship. Instead, they were both smitten when their eyes met while Dana was doing a sexy dance around a chocolate figure of a naked man.
It was intriguing watching Dana working through her trust issues, and the uncomfortable sensation she got at first when dealing with Trevor. When Trace, Trevor’s twin brother shows up, Dana dreams of the two men modeling for her and a little bit more. I can't put my finger on just why, but Trace ended up not being one of my favorite characters. There was something about his personality that I didn’t like and even though he looked like his brother he was so different from Trevor. There were a few places I had to back track to make sure that Trace was Trace, and Trevor was Trevor, because in a few places Trace would pretend to be his brother to try and trick Dana.
I love this story. When you mix chocolate, men, and hot sex you can be sure to have a very entertaining book that is worth every minute spent reading it. Decadent Delights has a delicious plot that will make a reader wonder if the characters will get a happy ending or if something will drive them apart. There were some hot sex scenes and the story was a easy read with great editing resulting in one of those cute and relaxing tales. Don’t miss out on Decadent Delights because the title doesn't even cover all the sweet treasures inside for your entertainment.
