Bette had Devlin, a gorgeous, incredibly sexy boyfriend of two years, a wonderful house, and a future all planned out for the two of them. Then one beautiful Sunday morning she picked up his phone and saw naked photos and texts from the other woman.

Tomas was just supposed to be her charming but boxing scarred local coffee house barista, not the suddenly gorgeous man who swept her off her feet. The guy who’d been waiting for a long time to take her away from Dev, her ex, who wanted to keep her in bed screaming his name from dawn to dusk. Yeah, Tomas had some plans for Bette. And he had a lot of secrets.

A taste of coffee…a lifetime of sin.

Bette has a problem. Her boyfriend is a cheater but she is at loathe to accept it. A cup of coffee and her favorite dessert are hardly a substitute for her heartbreak, even with the sexy Tomas watching her with troubled eyes. When everything comes to light, Bette dumps Dev and struggles to come to terms with his betrayal. She is gutted, but this time when Tomas approaches her, she sees him a whole new light. Things aren’t always what they seem and this barista has a hidden side that will take her breath away.

Tomas can’t stand to watch the man Bette loves take advantage of her. He keeps track of her, to the point of switching locations just to be near. When he has an opportunity to come to her rescue, he does and only then does he reveal his secret.

This book was as sinful as a salted caramel mocha. Salty and sweet, with sexy interludes to keep you turning the pages. Tabitha Bishop’s first novella is a good read and I look forward to more work from this author. I won’t give away the secret to the book but it’s worth the time to find out and at a novella length, it’s a perfect read to go with that break time cup of caffeinated awesome.

One thing I did notice was the author stopped just shy of the bedroom door when I wanted to sneak a little more than a peek into the more sensual side of this tale. More sexy time, Ms. Bishop. We want to you to make us crunch ice after our coffee. *grin*

This was a sexy and fun read and I can’t wait for the next book. Bring on the coffee and the chocolate and if you happen to find a barista as hot as Tomas, I say keep him.
