Review: Tasting Los Angeles
Author: Kimmie Easley
Genre: Erotic Romance
Review Rating: 4 LIGHTNING BOLTS
Blurb: A woman struggling to stand on her own two feet.
A man who refuses to let her stand alone.
Will she manage to look beyond his muscular surface, or miss finding her soul mate altogether?
After years of living by her military parents’ strict regimen, Tori Altman decides to take a chance on herself. Against her parent’s wishes, she moves to Los Angeles in search of becoming a fashion designer. When she lands a position with a prominent fashion house, Tori pours all of her focus into getting ahead in the business, making no time for anything or anyone else.
Cole McMahon is her hunky neighbor who works as a highly sought after exotic dancer. He’s made it his personal mission to change Tori’s view on love. That is, if she can finally find a way to look beyond Cole’s day job and give him a fair chance.
When life knocks her off her feet, Tori finds comfort in the most unexpected place, but is it enough?
Review: Tori doesn't need a man in her life, but Cole wants to be the man in her life. He's had feelings for her but could never get that close to the elusive woman who seems to push him away. She's just not looking for what he wants to give.
But persistence, and circumstances happen, which pull the two together. Feelings change....
At first, I wasn't sure what to make of Tori. She's headstrong, confident, but she also has her heart closed off. Sometimes I wondered what was up with her. I admire and respect the fact that she wants to be her own person and do things her way, but at times she just had this coldness to her. Luckily, that faded quick and the readers got to know a different side to her.
Cole is great, too. He's sexy, determined and all around a good guy. I loved his patience with Tori. I love that he didn't give up. I love that when he got his chance he did everything he could for her.
The fourth stand alone in the Tasting Series is hot and engaging. I've been enjoying all of these stories and can't wait to see what else Ms. Easley has up her sleeve for us readers.
