Whole Latte Love Book Review and Tour

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+.

My thoughts:

This book is a steamy example of what a great romance can be! I have to admit, at multiple times I was annoyed at both main characters and the way they were sabatoging each other and their relationship. Their game playing got a bit out of hand.

But watching them open up and grow was so much fun! Carina really started out as a very traditional Asian daughter, but grew to make her own choices and control her life. Dylan comes across as your typical barista/musician, but grows into someone who everyone can be proud of.

Definitely a great read, and a neat look at the different sides of Berkeley!
