With a sculpted body of jailhouse tattoos and a chain of successful gourmet donut shops, Thorne Avery is a study in contradictions. Wearing handmade suits while riding his favorite Harley, Thorne has kept his heart on lockdown and thrown away the key.
CeeCee Baldwin is done with upheaval and heartache. She just wants to be left alone to enjoy her mundane existence. Book boyfriends, the promise of a quiet weekend and the intense pleasure of eating two of the most scrumptious gourmet donuts on the planet are her Friday night highlights.
When Thorne catches a glimpse of this lush, exotic beauty standing at the counter of his flagship store, his walled off heart takes a direct hit. And the more he gets to know this sassy, irresistible woman, the more he knows he has to have her. But when Thorne’s former life and CeeCee’s past come crashing together, how can one obsessed hero overcome such insurmountable odds?
Authors warning: A felon, some donuts and a sassy heroine who’s not afraid to drop the F bomb come together in this love-at-first-sight, moves-at-the-speed-of-light sexy romance. It’s a quick ride full of sexy times that will have you licking your fingers and wiping your chin. No cheating, alpha hotness and always a happy ending. Next please!
Dani Wyatt is a new to me author, but someone compared her books to Alexa Riley, so I was like “Hell Yes!”. That person was not wrong! Sweet Ride was such a different book!
I loved the plot of Sweet Ride. Thorne was a bad guy who goes honest and does so by baking doughnuts! Love it! CeeCee is an undocumented immigrant working at a sleazy clinic. Its a love at first sight kind of relationship, so if that isn’t your thing, move along. I loved the plot overall and it really kept me reading! My biggest issue was Thorne. It kind of moved into alpha-hole territory for me. I didn’t find some of his bossiness sexy at all. It was a bit of a turn off for me a few times. Thankfully though I loved CeeCee!! She is smart and compassionate. She struggles with consolidating her feelings for her family after all they have done to her. She is well written and developed, even though the story is short!
Overall, while this is quite a bit on the smutty side, there is a great story here! I think Dani Wyatt has moved to my must read pile for sure!
