Series: Island Bites #1

After a public meltdown over her breakup from her cheating musician boyfriend, Cherisse swore off guys in the music industry and dating in general for a while, preferring to focus on growing her pastry-chef business. When her younger sister reveals she’s getting married in a few months, Cherisse hopes that will distract her mother enough to quit harassing her about finding a guy, settling down, and having kids. But her mother’s matchmaking keeps intensifying.

Cherisse tries to humor her mother, hoping if she feigns interest in the eligible bachelors she keeps tossing her way, she’ll be off the hook, but things don’t quite go as planned. It turns out that, for the first time in ages, she and Keiran King, the most annoying man ever, are on the island at the same time. Avoiding him is impossible, especially when Keiran’s close friend is the one marrying her sister and he’s the best man to her maid of honor.

Keiran doesn’t know what to make of Cherisse now. They’ve always butted heads. To him, she’s always been a stuck-up brat who seeks attention, even while he secretly harbored a crush on her. Now with Cherisse’s sister marrying one of his good friends, he can’t escape her as the wedding activities keep throwing them together. When things turn heated after a rainy night of bedroom fun, they both have to figure out if they can survive the countdown to wedding day without this turning into a recipe for disaster.

My Review:

First of all, LOOK AT THIS CUTE COVER!! GAH. 😍 Gimme all them Island Bites! This first in a series is full of pastry goodness, wedding hysteria, sexual tension and just plain fun.  Cherisse and Keiran have a bit of a history stemming from their childhood in that they were nemeses who are now bound together via Cherisse's sister's wedding to Keiran's best friend.  Maid of Honor, meet Best Man.  Good luck! 🤣

I really enjoyed watching everything pan out between these two.  And the narrator is AMAZING! Highly recommend the audio of this to those who can read with their ears.  You really can't help but to cheer on their sexual chemistry and even the sex scenes, while somewhat tame was still extremely hot and that perfect blend of not being too much while still being everything.  Maybe I've been cooped up by myself for too long but .... 😏

The diverse cast of characters was so fun to meet and really made for some comical, fun scenes.  While I figured the story would go in the obvious direction, it's following along with each of them that made this so very entertaining.  Now, I will say that the big "to do" that caused a bit of friction seemed a bit unnecessary for the reason that it was but hell, I've certainly popped off for things that I could've handled differently and quite frankly, it's amazing what a simple song can do at times. ❤ You'll know what I mean when you read this, and I highly recommend that you do.

I'll absolutely be continuing this series and am really hoping for a book dedicated to Remi and Maxine - Peltier, we ARE getting that, right? 😉  Either way, I loved journeying to the Caribbean in this book which makes me want to travel IMMEDIATELY and find Cherisse so she can teach me to BAKE!
