Dipped in Chocolate
Author Renee Luke presents three novellas bound by both theme and friendship in
her book DIPPED IN CHOCOLATE. Each story in this collection
centers around a different confection, and connects three girlfriends as they
find their true loves.
It would be hard to not use the word ‘sweet’ when describing these three romances – and not only because they each feature a different candy in the plot. Luke delivers three fun and sexy stories in this book that are sure to tickle more than the readers’ taste buds! I was delighted by each tale and finished this book in one sitting I was so captivated by it.
I will warn you, however, this story left me with quite a sweet-tooth and a desire for someone special of my own to share with!

Is it Wedding-Day jitters when the wedding is still weeks off? How about when
you never accepted the proposal in the first place, but you still find your name
on invitations with the wrong man, realizing you are hopelessly in love with
I have to say that Lexi and Jackson’s Candy Kisses game was probably my favorite
of all three stories! Lexi’s habit of sucking on fruity hard candies long ago
developed into a game in which Jackson steals a quick kiss and then guesses the
flavor of her candy. Having taken their Candy Kisses for granted all of these
years, the pair begins to understand their true meaning when Lexi becomes
engaged to another man.

Toni could just die. Roped into a night of speed-dating by her well-meaning
friends who have determined she needs to find a man ASAP, she finds herself
sitting across from one dweeb after another – at least until the last ‘date’ of
the evening. In just three minutes, Isaac and his Conversation Hearts candy
charm her more than any man has been able to in quite a while…
I have never ever had any interest in speed dating, but this story makes me
wonder ‘what if???’ LOL! I mean, if it worked out so well for Toni, then maybe
it could for me as well? OK, so it probably is not very likely that I would
meet a man as wonderful as Isaac if I were to find a speed dating event in my
town, but it doesn’t make me enjoy this story any less.
~DIPPED IN CHOCOLATE~
The last thing Jayla needs tonight is another customer, particularly one as insistent and distracting as Nathan. Having barged into her store after closing, he won’t take no for an answer when she tells him she can’t take his order that night. Striking a bargain that guarantees him she’ll take his order after he helps her fill her rush order of chocolate-dipped fruits, they set about the evening’s work together. As the night wears on, Jayla finds herself more and more attracted to this undeniably sexy man, but romance is the last thing she has time for right now. Regardless, Nathan’s presence melts Jayla’s resistance as easily as her stoves melt her chocolate. And when he coaxes her into testing the chocolate body sauce he orders from her, her defenses crumble completely…
The title story is as decadent as its name promises! Jayla runs a business in
which she sells hand-dipped chocolate covered treats – the perfect setting for
some chocolate-flavored sexy fun… Jayla has been burned by a bad marriage and
isn’t looking for a relationship of any kind. She especially isn’t looking for
a man in Nathan’s line of work, of all things!
