Review: Scrumptious by Amanda Usen

After taking August off, Prah and Constantine to promote our brand new releases Wickedly They Come by Cathrina Constantine and Love Through Time by me. Yay us! we are back for another month of reviews. 

After reading my review head on over and check out Cathrina’s review on her blog. I’m looking forward to reading what she thought.

I admit that I’m a fickle woman. When I saw the cover I didn't hesitate to present it to Cathrina. Hot guy and cupcakes, can anyone blame me?

Scrumptious was an entertaining and dare I say it, delicious read. The sparks definitely flew between Joe and Marly from the onset of their encounter. The emotional baggage both of them were carrying made a sincere romance between them absolutely perfect. 

Ms. Usen made me chuckle but also made me so angry at the putz, Kieth that I was rooting for Marly to kick his behind. Notice I said that Marly should do it and not Joe, that’s how tough the woman was.

Although I love to eat and talk about food, I thought that Ms. Usen was a tad bit too technical with the cooking aspect in the book and lost me a few times, but she always caught me when she spoke of those delicious deserts and passionate kisses (which lead to other hot things).

Scrumptious is a light fun read that taught me a thing or two about cooking, or was it eating?

I give it four out of five Belgium chocolate blocks.

I purchased this book from

The Blurb:

Joe Rafferty is just as mouthwatering as the food he cooks. But if he thinks he's going to waltz in and take over her kitchen, he's denser than a thick slice of chocolate ripple cheesecake. Marly has invested too much of her life in Chameleon to hand off the restaurant to someone else—especially a cocky–as–all–get–out superstar chef. But there's no denying the man knows how to light her fire. Question is: Can she have the sizzle without feeling the burn?
