Overview

A Taste of Trouble by Gina Gordon

When Liv Crawford decided to pursue her dream of owning her own bakery, it was no surprise that she forgot to add "maintaining a serious relationship" to her business plan. Not when she believes a cupcake can fix anything, even loneliness.

Jake Miller isn't concerned about being lonely. He's cast aside his playboy lifestyle to pursue something more meaningful, his passion for photography. So, when his boss asks him to pursue a beautiful woman and coerce her to his office for a disguised meeting-no matter what it takes-in exchange for the opportunity to turn his hobby into a career, he jumps at the chance. At first sight, Liv awakens his long-buried desire for commitment, but his secret mission could ruin his hopes of keeping her.

Despite Liv's commitment to swear off relationships to run her bakery, Jake quickly becomes her number one distraction. Yet, even her misgivings can't tame the heat as they straddle the line between love and ambition.

A Taste of Trouble is a sweet contemporary romance by “new to me author” Gina Gordon.  It is a well written tale of life, love and priorities.  Liv has been working and planning for years to open her own bakery and is now getting to do just that.  Jake is working a job he tolerates to get to a job he has passion for.  When they meet the chemistry is off the charts. There are several threads running through this story that keep you plastered to every page.  I will definitely be checking out future works by Gina Gordon.

Liv had a dream to become a bakery owner. Never did she dream of a happily ever after with a man; not after being hurt by the man in her life that she should have been able to count on, her father. That was when Jake came into the picture. The hottest man she had ever see came through the door at the bar she was working at. Jake turned out to be quite the distraction to Liv, the hopefully up and coming bakery owner. Liv had been through so much hurt and pain from loved ones, she could not handle having her heart-broken again. That was when she realized the people around her were not who she thought they were. A great love story, this book was filled with sex and cupcakes, what a great combo. If I had to critique, the only thing I would have loved to see was a copy of the cupcake recipes that were talked about in the book. A recommended read.

Reviewed by: Crystal B Book provided by: the publisher for review Review originally posted at Romancing the Book I choose A Taste of Trouble by Gina Gordon because it features a bakery. I have read several books that have a setting of a bakery or diner in the past and they are usually pretty good reads. This one certainly did not let me down. Gina Gordon has created charming, delightful, and charismatic character that I bonded with right away. Liv Crawford is a lady I would like to run into at her shop CUPCAKE!, sit down, and have a cupcake and a chat. I admired her ambition and strength to be able to save and struggle until she is able to see her dream come true. I truly what to cheer Liv on and support her decisions. She has a wonderful support system in the form of her two best friends and her best friend’s boy friend. Liv keeps running into road blocks when trying to open her bakery. Lots of mysterious things go wrong. Is her luck really just this bad or is someone up to no good? I’m not going to spoil it, I’ll you let find out for yourself which it is. Liv certainly doesn’t have time for a relationship or at least she doesn’t think she has time. When she meets Jake Miller she unwilling agrees to date him. Oh my the chemistry between these two is just absolutely wonderfully written! Jake Miller works in public relations and hasn’t really taken time for a relationship. He has been to busy with his career to find a serious relationship or to even care if he were to find someone special to spend his life with. That all changes when he meets Liv. Liv has trust issues and has never wanted to get involved in a relationship due to things that happened in her past. Jake has a huge secret that he is not ready to reveal. It turns out his secret is bigger then even Jake knows. I so enjoyed watching this relationship grow and change as they each revealed more to each other. I really liked Ms. Gordon’s writing style and her ability to put together a story that kept me interested. There is some sweet romance, some sizzle and sparks, a little mystery, and some humor. What more could I possible ask for in a book, she covered a lot of my favorite bases.

Super Sweet Romance! Quick read! Liv and Jake have great chemistry. Both are likeable interesting characters. The author took some time to create back stories for both. Also gave both support systems, resulting in some fun scenes! There are also a couple twists, which help add some mystery! Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed A Taste of Trouble. I will be looking for more books by the author, Gina Gordon. If you want a light hearted, steamy romance, without being too steamy, definitely read A Taste of Trouble!

Sweet! Liv is on her path to achieving her dream - owning her own cupcake shop. She is determined to get it off the ground and has decided to focus all her attention to succeeding, until Jake walks into her life and her attention drifts over to him. Jake, with his handsome good looks and mischievous grin, is all set to win the promotion his boss has offered him. However, he was not expecting to be attracted to Liv. Although he tries to stay away and keep it just business, he can't help but delay in telling her the truth because he wants her for himself. A Taste of Trouble was a sweet, romantic read. The writing was entertaining and the story was interesting even if I felt that it dragged in places. The connection between Jake and Liv was palpable and their chemistry very hot. I found Liv to be an enjoyable character to get to know and her development throughout the story, although a bit predictable, was enjoyable as well. Now Jake is another story. I wanted to love him as I usually do my heroes, but his lies kept me from getting to that point. Although he redeemed himself a little there at the end, I thought he had ample opportunity to come clean to Liv and he just didn't want to. This is the first book I've read by Gina Gordon but I don't think it will be last. I enjoyed the different emotions she brought to the page, the characters' interactions and their sexual chemistry along with the bit of mystery she added to the story, so I'll be looking for more from her. I received this book from Entangled Publishing through NetGalley in exchange of my honest opinion.

**Copy kindly provided by the author via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review** Entangled is by far one of my favorite publishers and Gina Gordon is quickly becoming on of my favorite authors.  This is the 2nd book I've read by her in a single sitting, and I can't wait to read more by her. Gina Gordon does an amazing job conveying the sexual tension and chemistry between Olivia and Jake.  God I love a good romance that mixes sexy time and food.  Jake was super ubber sexy, besides the one epic flaw, he would make an awesome boyfriend.  I really like how she incorporates friends and family in her stories.  There were a few spacing errors but nothing to detrimental.  I do wish the epilogue had included the dinner.
