Reviewing Hearts and Flour by Tara Lain
Hearts and Flour by Tara Lain 4*
BLURB: A raw food fanatic and a cupcake baker -- can two hearts rise above the flour?
To Micah Truveen, raw, vegan food is his religion. So when his devoted customers start showing up with white flour cupcakes, Micah could kill. To cap off a rotten day before Valentine’s Day, Micah comes home to find his boyfriend, Dharamaram, in bed with someone else. In frustration, he throws the rat out and agrees to go to his friend’s orgiastic anti-Valentines party where he meets a gorgeous cross-dressing guy who gives him a night to remember.
Southerner, Quentin Darby wishes he could stop wearing women’s clothes. He desperately wants to live up to the glowing opinion his grandmother holds of him, so he’s never even told her he’s gay. And now there’s this guy who makes him wish he could just be who he is. But Micah finds out that Quentin is none other than the baker responsible for the plague of cupcakes afflicting the community! And Dharmaram adds a little blackmail to the mix. Two guys with nothing in common except love--food for thought.
My Review: This story delivered everything I have come to expect from Tara Lain. Excitement, man love and romance in spades :D I think Tara is the only writer I know who could have pulled of such an unusual combination of lovers as these. In the end those differences are what made the story so interesting and such fun to read and made me realise why Tara is becoming an auto buy author for me.
