Review: The Sweetest Kiss (Chasing Love #3) by Candace Shaw #AARomance

The Blurb

Luscious, tantalizing, delectable…and that's just Tiffani Chase-Lake's cupcakes. The moment Broderick Hollingsworth sets eyes on the sexy baker herself, he's truly intrigued. For the first time, the wary real estate developer is ready to open up to someone. Then he realizes that his next business deal is going to leave Tiffani and her cozy bakery high and dry… 

Just as hardworking single mom Tiffani is falling for Broderick's easy charm, she learns about the property deal that will destroy her business. Even her most decadent dessert can't eclipse the bitter taste of betrayal. Tiffani's livelihood and her independence are on the line. Walking away from their sensual chemistry won't be easy—but is trusting him a recipe for heartache? 

My Review

From start to finish this was a fantastic book. To be honest I was initially drawn to the cupcake on the cover, but when I read the blurb it was a must read. When I learned it was a series I put off reading The Sweetest Kiss and read the two before it. I really enjoyed the twin’s stories, but I’ll admit that this one is my favorite.

I loved that the initial perspective we got was from Broderick (sexy, suave, and rich = delicious man) and how such a normally cool guy could be affected by Tiffany by sight only. The concept of fate flowed through in that scene and I was hooked. It helped that when they did meet the attraction was instantaneous on both sides.

In the first two novels I had gotten a completely different conception of Tiffany’s first marriage than was reality. This aspect added a depth to the story knowing that she’d gone through hard times, pulled through, and made a success out of her life. It brought a wonderful internal conflict to the character which bled into the external one.

I had one tiny issue. In my humble opinion, Tiffany overreacted to some news she’d gotten about Broderick. She cut the lines of communication after accepting the information, and I didn’t care for this. Luckily Broderick was as persistent in his chase after her as he was in his career.

I can’t rave about this book enough.

I give it five out of five cupcake shaped chocolate bars.

I purchased this book from Amazon.


  1. Great review! This sounds like a great romance. And LOL, cupcakes are definitely a nice, eye-catching addition to covers of all kinds. Maybe the Cover Gods will bless you and allow a cupcake on one of your own books someday! :P

    1. Ohhh. I would love a cupcake on my cover one day. It might be completely unrelated to the book, but a cupcake is a cupcake.


I love reading your comments.
