BEAUTIFULLY DECADENT by LA Fiore
ABOUT BEAUTIFULLY DECADENT:
Avery Collins has just landed her dream job, pastry chef for the posh-Manhattan restaurant Clover. Her new boss, Trace Montgomery, even helped with securing her an affordable place to live: a beautifully restored carriage house owned by his friend, Rafe McKenzie—a man that makes her catch her breath and stirs her imagination. Trouble is, he's involved with someone, his father is being released after 25 years in prison and Avery is just his tenant. Exploring the attraction that sizzles whenever they're together would be the icing on the cake, but Avery knows all too well that you can't have everything. Of course, what's cake without icing?
Rafe McKenzie's world shattered at nine when his father Liam—the only parent he knew—was arrested and convicted for armed robbery. Growing up in the system, Rafe managed to survive his childhood and now has a job he enjoys, a house he's restoring and a tight circle of friends. He's even working on reconciling with his dad, both eager to put the past in the past.
Happy for the income a tenant would bring, Rafe agrees to rent his carriage house to Clover's new pastry chef. When Avery Collins pulls up his drive, she's not at all what he's expecting. Funny, sexy and as sweet as her desserts, it doesn't take long for things between them to heat up. Just when it seems as if they'll have their cake and eat it too, the past comes back with deadly intent leaving Rafe to figure out who's pulling the strings before his world shatters again
Review by: Amy E
I love this series! Beautifully Damaged is one of my all time favorite books so when this book came out I knew I had to read it!! So glad I did, I've been eager for Rafe's story since book 1.
What I love most about this book and this entire series is how much of a storyline you get. There is so much going on, so many twists and turns that I never really know what's going on until the end. I love it! There is no predictability in these books!
Avery is a character that you can't help but love. She was a ray of sunshine to all who's lives she touched. Her silliness and optimism really helped to brighten up the sometimes dark storyline.
Rafe was brilliant like I knew he would be. That man was every woman's dream man. Kind, hardworking, and still 100% alpha!
Fantastic book in an already spectacular series.
