Holy hot and sexy alpha, dirty talking, edible deliciousness!
“I want you naked and in my bed, and I want it in the next two minutes.”
“Or?” she pushed.
“There is no or,” he informed her as his serious eyes met hers. “Just do it.”
Edible just secured Ella Frank a spot in my absolute favorite authors list. I loved every sweet, sticky, caramel-covered second of this book! Frankly, I was a little scared to review this. I loved it so much that it is worth more than 5 stars for me, but until this month, those 5+++ star rated books were few and far between. But this is the third ABSOLUTELY AMAZEBALLS book I have read this month. This book was well worth more than 5 stars, it had everything I look for in a book, and it was so hot, I’m surprised my kindle didn’t burn up (because I certainly did! So did Mr. Ana 😉 )
“Remember this moment, Rachel, because I don’t plan to forget it until you’re screaming my name so loudly that every single person within a ten-mile radius knows what it fucking is.”
Edible is the third in the Exquisite series. Each book can stand alone, but since characters from Exquisite (book 1-my review) and Entice (book 2-my review) make some major appearances is this book, I advise reading it in order. The whole series is worth the read, and absolutely one of my favorites. Filled with sexy banter, sexual tension, and some fairly kinky and hot-as-fuck scenes without unnecessary angst, Exquisite is a series you don’t want to miss.
“I will use my mouth, tongue, and anything else I need to make you whisper, groan, and scream my name”
Rachel is a leather wearing, edgy looking, beautiful woman who sports different bright color streaks in her hair weekly. She has taken over running a flower shop during the day, and being a pastry chef at night in her brother, Mason’s restaurant. (Mason’s book is Exquisite, the name of the restaurant). Rachel met Cole briefly in book two, Entice, where Cole had spotted her at a club called Whipped, all Dommed out. The sexual tension between them was palpable, but nothing happened.
Cole seems to be an uptight, perfectly tailored, never-a-wrinkle in his suit kind of guy, and he is also a high powered attorney. But you can’t always judge a book by it’s cover, or a man by his clothes.
“Cole was a man who exuded confidence. He projected strength and determination in every aspect of his life, and it only made sense that he would carry it over to the bedroom. This wasn’t a man who was playing at anything; this was a man who lived the only way he knew how.”
Rachel and Cole bump into each other at the subway station. As the banter ensued, Cole put a candy in his mouth. And while a man like him should have looked ridiculous eating a candy, he looked nothing of the sort.
“Sinful was what popped into her head–as if she needed an adjective to describe what her body was already screaming.”
“Would you like a taste Rachel?”
“And if I say yes?”
If you say yes, I’m going to have a hard time not pushing my tongue between those brazen fucking lips. was what Cole wanted to say as he looked down at the feisty woman in the tight leather pants.
“If you say yes, I’ll give you my tongue to suck on, and you can take a guess at what it is.”
Though Rachel tried to avoid him, Cole had another plan in mind, and made sure he met her again.
“I want to touch you, Rachel, ALL of you, but I won’t until you ask me to. (…)
The man is too fucking much–cocky, arrogant, sexy, and bad….the look in his eyes and the tone of his voice screamed all the bad things he wanted to do to her.”
“There is one small problem here, don’t you think? We both want to be on top.”
Cole couldn’t help the wicked thrill he felt snake up his spine at her words.
“I’m not averse to being underneath you, Rachel, not in the least.”
Rachel has been hurt in the past, and Cole recognizes her fears. But he brings out the cocky-as-fuck attitude that drove her crazy, and challenges Rachel to “take off his suit”, and promises he will not touch her until she asks…or begs. (Holy hotness….I would totally be begging this guy!)
The man is a fucking god. If she thought he had been dangerous with clothes, removing them had just made him lethal.
Keeping his arms firmly behind his back, he lifted his mouth from hers and moved it to her ear.
“I can’t touch you, Rachel, and god, I want to. I want to undo these sexy leather pants and slide my hands inside. Or maybe, I could lick the skin that’s peeking out between the laces, but I can’t. You said no.”
Cole is the perfect guy for Rachel. Though she protected herself with her Domme persona, she needed someone like Cole who could take control.
“By the time I get to you, I promise you will be begging for it. In fact, I should just be able to look at you, and you will want to come. If your greedy little hands have done the deed, you won’t need me now, will you?”
Let me tell you, I will never look at caramel the same way again.
Edible had barely any angst, had a great story, and the sexual tension oozed off every page. I loved both characters, and it was a pleasure re-visiting the couples from the two previous books. After reading Edible, I think back to the first two in the Exquisite series, and really loved them, but Edible was my favorite of the series. Her books just keep getting better!
- Dominant, cocky, bossy, and totally sweet and loving, Cole is one of my favorite book boyfriends ever.
- Wait until you find out all of Cole’s surprises. Holy fuck…so hot.
- Don’t judge a book by it’s cover…you’ll see.
- The interaction between Rachel and her brother Mason.
- The friendship between Rachel and the couples in the two precious books.
- Very little angst, but it wasn’t too light either.
- One of the most memorable, sticky, sex scenes ever.
- How Cole helps Rachel become whole again.
- I was able to remember the first two books well enough because the author was good at reminding the reader without overdoing it.
- I have a craving for caramel, ladders and wine.
- One of the best 3rd person books I have read. I usually have trouble connecting with third person, but had no such issues here.
- Absolutely nothing.
Rating: 5+++ Stars, 5 Heat
I have very few books that can give me both a 5+ star story and a 5+ Heat (See all of my Great Story with Great Sex books here), but Edible fits in there well. Reading Edible has made me want to read the entire series again. I laughed, I cried, I swooned, my husband got lucky several times, and I will never look at caramel the same. Ella is one of the best erotic romance writers I have read. Her next book is male/male, something I’m really not usually fond of unless there is a female in the mix. But if Ella writes it, I will read it. She is absolutely on my auto-buy list.
“I had no idea it would be you,” she admitted ………
“And I knew it had to be you.”
