Treat with Caution by Serenity Woods

Treats to Tempt You, Book 1

An enemies-to-lovers romance with heat and heart.

Tasha Wilde has spotted the perfect site for the Treats to Tempt You confectionery shop she's planning to run with her best friend, Maisey. It's the ideal size and location, right on the waterfront in Doubtless Bay, New Zealand. The only fly in the melted chocolate is Maisey's brother, Kole. He wants the shop for his photography business, and he's about to sign the lease.

Tasha and Kole Graham have trod the wafer-thin line between friends and enemies since they were teenagers. Privately, she acknowledges Kole has grown up into a fine figure of a man. Okay, to be honest, he's so sexy he often dismantles the speech center of her brain. But he's still the most irritating guy on Earth.

Kole tries to think of Tasha as just his sister's best friend, but it's getting harder and harder. Literally. And he's having trouble hiding it. So when their friends suggest a bet with the shop as the prize, and it means he can get his hands on Tasha, he's quick to agree. The Shakespearean-style scheme? To get the other person to fall in love with them. In eight days.

Both are confident their attraction is only physical. Both are going to get into trouble. But who will win the bet on Midsummer night?

Warning: Sultry and steamy, with rising temperatures. And the sub-tropical weather's pretty hot too. Adults only.

She's feisty, rebelling against her beautiful model-looks mom by dressing down, because she wants to be appreciated for herself, not just her looks. She works hard, has dreams of opening her own business with her friends from university, but he's snagged the waterfront shop they need for the business. He's her roommate's brother, who is handsome, cocky, an independent photographer, and afraid to commit to any relationship because his brother died in a car wreck just after breaking up with the girlfriend. He's also someone she always verbally sparred with while they were growing up. On a bet, they decide on a short term fling. Whoever makes the other fall hardest in love gets the option to lease the shop. Classic romance formula for character conflicts, but what makes this work is that the author has a keen sensibility for the characters, including self-doubts, first date jitters, worries about long term commitments, discovery of differences between hooking up with a stranger versus discovering romance with your best friend, and difficulties in realizing that someone you used to think of as too young has really grown up. The secondary characters add credibility, along with sound advice from the flatmates, family and friends who knew all along that sparks could fly. The ending feels a bit rushed, but four stars for this contemporary romance that zings with characters who have depth and development, and true life relationship issues. Looking forward to reading the next in this series.

Treat with Caution is book one in the Treats to Tempt You Series, a series about a group of friends looking for and finding true love in the most unexpected places. This is Tasha and Kole’s story and in this book we get to see what happens when a bet to date for eight days turns into true love. Serenity Woods has a way of drawing you into her stories, her characters become your friends and she describes the towns and places they visit so well you almost feel like you have visited NZ. This isn’t a new series but it’s a series I haven’t read as yet and I’m about to rectify that by looking up the other books in Treats to Tempt You. Loved it

Tasha and Kole have been known each other for 11 years, since his younger sister and her became best friends aged 13 and they have teased and taunted each other for years. Tasha is annoyed with Kole, they both want to lease the same shop for their businesses but Kole got in first and refuses to budge. During the slanging match, which becomes personal, Tasha says that he would fall for her before she would ever fall for him, things escalate and a bet is born that whomever falls for the other (to be judged by their friends) in the next 8 days will win the shop. What follows is sex, sex and more sex. Note: Strong language.

Treat With Caution by Serenity Woods is a well-written book. Ms Woods has delivered a fantastic cast of characters. Kole and Tasha's story is full of drama, humor and sizzle. I enjoyed Treat With Caution and look forward to reading more from Serenity Woods in the future. Treat With Caution is book 1 of the Treats To Tempt You Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.
