BD RDB banner

Beautifully Decadent by L.A. Fiore 

Contemporary Romance 

Released: June 28, 2016


Avery Collins has just landed her dream job, pastry chef for the posh-Manhattan restaurant, Clover. Her new boss, Trace Montgomery, even helped with securing her an affordable place to live: a beautifully restored carriage house owned by his friend, Rafe McKenzie—a man that makes her catch her breath and stirs her imagination. Trouble is, he's involved with someone, his father is being released after 25 years in prison and Avery is just his tenant. Exploring the attraction that sizzles whenever they're together would be the icing on the cake, but Avery knows all too well that you can't have everything. Of course, what's cake without icing?

 Rafe McKenzie's world shattered at nine when his father Liam—the only parent he knew—was arrested and convicted for armed robbery. Growing up in the system, Rafe managed to survive his childhood and now has a job he enjoys, a house he's restoring and a tight circle of friends. He's even working on reconciling with his dad, both eager to put the past in the past.

 Happy for the income a tenant would bring, Rafe agrees to rent his carriage house to Clover's new pastry chef. When Avery Collins pulls up his drive, she's not at all what he's expecting. Funny, sexy and as sweet as her desserts, it doesn't take long for things between them to heat up. Just when it seems as if they'll have their cake and eat it too, the past comes back with deadly intent leaving Rafe to figure out who's pulling the strings before his world shatters again.

Beautifully Decadent (Beautifully Damaged, #3)5 Decadent Stars

LA Fiore has a way of writing magic on the page.

Every single story is perfect.

She outdoes herself every single time.

I absolutely adored Rafe and Avery’s story. It is so natural and real. I loved the fact that these characters were so much like every day people. Your neighbors, your friends, your family.

Avery made me laugh all the time. Her antics were so good and she is just so funny and beautiful. And Rafe, well what can I say about him. He left me a little speechless. He is just so damn fine. Gorgeous in fact. The way that these characters are so in tune with each other and so comfortable was refreshing. Even the fact there is so much sexual tension and many obstacles between them before their friendship turns to more was just so delicious and enthralling. I just loved it.

There is so much going on in this story. The author weaves it so well with so many different aspects. From the main story and the back story, she works her magic and pulls everything together perfectly. Her main characters are so well developed as well as all her secondary characters. She really puts a lot of detail into all of them.

Ms Fiore’s writing style is exceptional. Free flowing and extremely detailed in every aspect.
She is an exceptional storyteller. She has the ability to captivate her audience at every turn. I was totally entranced throughout Rafe and Avery’s.

So beautifully decadent.

A definite must read.

REVIEW - American Bad Boy by Eddie Cleveland

American Bad Boy: A Military Bad Boy Romance by Eddie Cleveland

Now Available


I lost my men. I lost my leg. I lost my career. And all I could think of was Lauren.
I left for West Point with two things: a broken heart and a promise to never let it happen again.
Now I'm back in Colorado as a war hero. F*ck that, I'm a celebrity.
And every woman wants to open her legs for Captain America.
So why do I only want her?


Even with one leg, Mack Forrester hasn't lost his swagger.
It's been a decade since he left. But under his tattoos, I still see the guy who broke my heart when he chose his country instead of me.
I told myself I was over it.
Over him.
One glimpse in his crystal blue eyes and I knew it was a lie.
Now he wants me back, but ten years is a long time. There's so much he doesn't know.
Like, that I had his child.

3-3.5 Military Stars

A Military Second Chance Romance

American Bad Boy is the debut novel by Eddie Cleveland. It follows Mack and Lauren on their journey from teenage lovers to reconnecting after Mack returns from war and being apart for ten years.

The story is an easy read. Interesting in that it deals with Mack’s PTSD and the demons he carries with him from war. I enjoyed how the author shows the trials and tribulations that veterans go through, how they deal and how they try to cope.

I found it refreshing to read a military romance from a former military man. Just made me stop and think about what he was writing and he’s experiences while at war.

It’s a good debut from Eddie Cleveland, but I felt that some improvements could be made.

For example, even though I enjoyed the foundation of this story, there were a few things that confused me. I didn’t see it as an inter-racial story at all. The only indication was very lightly skimmed within the story and other than a reference here or there about caramel colored skin and another when Lauren entered the police station and her thoughts were of how she would be perceived as “just another black woman picking up her son,” it kind of threw me off a little. I didn’t get that impression from the story that he was white and she was black until that moment in the police station, and then it wasn’t really referred to again in any detail.

I thought the character development was good but could improve a little with more back story on how they shaped their lives in the ten years they were apart. I just thought there were a few things missing in the story plot to connect the circumstances to where they were ten years later when they reconnect.

And once they do reconnect I felt it was almost too easy. I would have like to see more angst and tension between Mack and Lauren while they were reconnecting. I felt Lauren gave in to Mack almost too easily.

Apart from a few issues for me as a reader, I thought the overall story a good debut by Eddie Cleveland. I will definitely be looking forward to more from this author.

An ARC was provided for an honest review.

Darren Bridge is living a bachelor’s dream. When he’s not running into burning buildings with his crew, he’s training the flavor of the week at his brother’s gym. Few women have ever been off limits...until Vanessa. Smart, beautiful, and legs for days, she’s unlike anyone he’s ever met. Too bad he’s sworn to leave her alone.

Overworked with no end in sight, Vanessa Hawkins hasn’t had a vacation in nearly two years. When Cameron and Maya’s destination wedding takes her out of the office for a much-needed break, she finds herself struggling to resist her attraction to the best man. Darren is dangerously good-looking with enough charm to make any hot-blooded woman want to drop her panties and enjoy the ride, no matter how long it lasts.

When they return to the city, Darren realizes the single life has lost its glimmer. But with everything else on her plate, Vanessa doesn’t have room in her life for a man, let alone a player. Can Darren find his way into her heart and convince her that he’s worth the risk?
