My Review:

It has taken me a few days to get up to writing this book. I mean some parts really turned my mind around. I Love brooke's writing, she just has a way with it that draws you so deep into the story that you are right there with the characters. I really thought I knew where this one was going after book one. I Loved that book and it ended in a way that I had my own ideas about this one. WELL obviously Brooke had other ideas and oh how glad I am that I was so very wrong. This book was SO GOOD! Full capitals good. It had great plot twists and I felt that we really got to know the characters more in this book. Secrets were definitely revealed. We start back up with Molly works at the restaurant and Life is Good. The beginning eases you back in, and this is a good thing so don't think it stays that way. Not in the least. It may start off slowly but thats only to brace you for whats ahead. Some new faces pop up in this book as well as old so keep a lookout because these faces come with hidden agendas, and not the nice kind. There are people that have it out for our lovely Molly and her ever dashing Drake, but their love is strong, hopefully strong enough. With Stalking, messages, and the danger ahead of them its a dangerous ride. I never saw the ending coming. Not in a million pages. It totally threw me. I way thought I had it figured out. I was all "Oh yeha, I got it! Its So&So!!", Nope. Its not. Your wrong. You will be blown away. So prepare yourself. I am now currently waiting on book 3 and hopefully the more of you that buy these books the quicker brooke can write book 3 :) Get me? Less promoting on her part means more writing, so lets promote, review, and send the love for the Riverside books! Oh P.S. we are TOTALLY not let down in the Hot and Heavy department *Teehee "Let Down"* This book bring us right back into the exploding chemistry between Molly and Drake. Just You Wait And See :) Synopsis: She finally found the one… but he has a hidden secret. Could this be the breaking point for Molly? Has she endeared too much? Drake and Molly had instant chemistry in Kitchen Affairs, but when his secret goes all wrong, their relationship will be tested, feelings get hurt, and limits will be reached. Someone tries interfering with their relationship keeping them distant; longing for answers in all the wrong places. Can they recover their once intense, sensual chemistry? Will love be enough? Secrets, betrayals, and scandals… Chicago’s hottest couple, Molly & Drake, go through big changes, hidden secrets, and tragedies.

Molly “So, I have a little surprise for you,” Drake announced as I dried the last of the dishes. “Does it involve… cheesecake?” I asked, really craving some sweet dessert. “It could…” He rushed over to me and slammed me against the wall, taking me by surprise. He pinned my hands up behind my head with his as he smashed his lips to mine. I felt a sudden tingle between my thighs, ready to divulge into him at any moment. “If it did involve cheesecake, I’d set a piece right here…” He paused, kissing my shoulder. “And right here…” He paused again, kissing the other shoulder. “And possibly down here…” He then trailed his kisses down my chest, moving the fabric of my shirt out of his way with his teeth. “Oh, sweet Jesus, please tell me we have cheesecake,” I pleaded, urging him down further. He released my hands as his mouth lowered down my body placing tender, sweet kisses on my bare skin. “If you keep this up, I’m going to be forced to take you right here and now.” “That’d be an awfully sweet view for the neighbors,” he mocked, picking me up and carrying me towards the stairs. His lips locked on mine as he walked us up the staircase. I wondered how he managed up the stairs without looking, but after all the activity we normally had, he was a pro by now. He slammed us against the mattress, frantically ripping my clothes off. I reciprocated by unbuttoning and unzipping everything off him. Fuck, he wears too many layers. He rubbed his hands over my stomach making me cringe every time he brushed a finger over my bare skin. “You are seriously torturing me,” I amused, enjoying the sensual desires that were firing up within me. “Don’t worry, baby. I’m going to take good care of you,” he promised. He hovered on top of me, placing light kisses from one shoulder to the other. He spent the next hour taking his time with me, kissing me, and caressing his hands over my bare silky skin.
