Overview

In this frothy novella, pastry chef Claire Reidling is having one of those good news-bad news days. The bad news is that she's lost the heirloom engagement ring given to her by a man she's not even sure she wants to marry. The good news is that she thinks she knows where it is. But then there's more bad news. She fears it may be in one of five hundred single serving chocolate desserts she's just sent to a high society fund-raiser for the rich-enough-to-sue-her and famous-enough-to-ruin-her-career. Only one person can help her now: her best friend since first grade, Gus Brody. What does he say? Will he go with her to the Plaza Hotel and help her eat her way through mountains of chocolate in an effort to find the missing ring?

Gus isn't all that keen on helping Claire at first, since he doesn't think she ever should have gotten engaged to her jerk boss in the first place. Still, a friend in need and all that. And hey, the good deed does involve mass consumption of chocolate, something Gus loves almost as much as he loves Claire. Now if he could just get her to see how much she means to him...

Chocolate is the ultimate aphrodisiac. But can it turn best friends into lovers?

"Just Desserts," along with four other short reads by Elizabeth Bevarly, can also be purchased in the omnibus collection, SHORT WORK, for a reduced price!

Great read.

This was my 3rd book by this author. I loved Pendleton (very entertaining!), and I thought the summer story with Mamie was charming... a good read. This one, however, was a huge disappointment. I dislike when characters are put in ridiculous situations, and their behavior is just as idiotic. I found myself skipping over pages out of boredom, as well. I liked the male lead, but not crazy about anyone else. I'm thankful the book was short and only cost me a buck.

I found myself laughing out loud and couldn't put it down. It's a great short story when you don't have time to get involved in a long book.
