Baked Fresh – Portland Heat #2
Bookreview / May 8, 2015

Baked Fresh is part 2 in the Portland Heat series by Annabeth Albert. Different stories, but all are set in the Portland area. In this second part we meet Vic Degrassi, a baker who recently lost a lot of weight but still has to come to terms with that. He volunteers at the local homeless shelter, where he meets Robin Dawson. But Robin is seeing someone, so he knows it will never be. Besides, he is quite sure someone like Robin will never have eyes for him. And the last time Vic dated someone has been so long ago, he is not sure he still knows how. Suddenly Robin is dumped by his boyfriend and Vic decides to take a chance. One steamy night follows and they both have to decide what they want. Will it be a one time rebound thing or will it be more than that? Can Vic overcome his insecurities and is Robin ready to open his heart again? I really like the Portland Heat series. It is al about hot guys and good food, what more could you want? Annabeth Albert has a real talent for writing a sweet story, with just the right amount…

Bookreview / April 9, 2015

Served Hot is the first part in the new Portland Heat series by Annabeth Albert. Other parts are Baked Fresh and Delivered Fast that will come out later this year. All books are about food, coffee, shops and restaurants and all are placed in the Portland area, hence the title of the series. In this first part we meet Robby, a self employed barista who serves coffee and cakes to a long line of customers every day. He owns the business and loves it very much. And he has a major crush on one of his regular customers, David. At first he knows little about David, just that he is cute, friendly and is very easy to chat with. Robby is looking for a way to ask David out, but never seems to find the chance. Until David shows up at the local Pride festival and Robby finally gets his chance. But the more they get together in the relation, the more it seems that David has some problems of his own and needs to work through them first. But can Robby wait that long? It’s not a big book, but I loved loved loved it. Both guys are so…
