Guest Book Review - Whole Latte Love by Rachelle Ayala plus $20 Amazon/Paypal & Signed Book Giveaway

Investment banking intern Carina Chen doesn’t need any distractions—especially the sexy, guitar-playing barista she rooms with for the summer.

Free spirit Dylan Jewell appreciates the delightful universe of women who vie for his attention. His goal in life is to do good, make happy coffee, and help the homeless.

When Carina moves in, she insists on rules of conduct to quell her instant attraction to Dylan. But when her boss asks her to turn Dylan into a businessman, she can’t think of a reason not to take advantage of his hospitality.

Their chemistry is white hot, but Dylan refuses to play Carina’s game, unable to understand how he can fall in love with a woman who puts profits in front of people. When Carina realizes Dylan isn’t budging, she risks all to gain a single night with him. Will her gambit backfire or will Dylan discover Carina’s true heart before she runs away with his?

Set in Berkeley, California, Whole Latte Love is an opposites-attract romance mixing bluesy rock music, hot, steamy love scenes, and financial shenanigans.

Steamy love scenes and language. Suitable for readers 18+.

Whole Latte Love is a book that brings together humor, the romance of a first love, and the hot, steamy element romance books are made of. On the base of things, the book follows the same basic plot highs and lows of most books in this genre. The great part, though, was the unexpected flips and turns in the plot. The entire thing was brought together by two very realistic, very human main characters in Carina and Dylan. They both have passions, flaws, and make mistakes, some of them endearing, some of them making you want to shake them and ask what they were thinking. The character development, not only of the two whose lives we follow in Carina and Dylan, but in the many supporting roles seen in their friends, family, and co-workers, helps set this book apart from so many mass market paperback romance novels that are too busy spending time with hot steamy sex scenes to bother giving the characters personality. Instead, the author manages to balance plot, character development, and (of course!), a few steamy elements, winding them all together into a very enjoyable book. I honestly stayed up way too late two nights in a row reading, promising myself just one more chapter.

Overall, a very enjoyable book. Well thought out, great characters, and well edited. And, I have to say, as a person who loves puns, the title makes me smile every time I read it.
