I want to start with Avery. There’s something about Avery that you just can’t help but love. She’s fun and kind of goofy and she never takes herself too seriously and the banter she has with her sister is hilarious! You can just feel the love that she has for her family in every interaction. She has this innate ability to get herself into situations that are both humorous and slightly dangerous. She’s also tries to bring joy to others through her love of all things baked. When she meets Rafe she sees someone who puts his whole heart into his woodworking and into the restoration of his home as she puts into her creation of new and decadent sweets. She can’t help falling for him. Too bad he’s not unattached when she meets him and believe me….his girlfriend is a real treat. Not!
Rafe is almost the polar opposite of Avery in everything other than his passion to create. He is driven, but his past has shaped him into a man who is loyal to a fault but who is also reserved and kind of closed off emotionally. No, he’s not free to follow the attraction he has for Avery when he meets her but he’s still incredibly drawn to her ever present cheerfulness and her general quirkiness. He has this silly idea that he can just keep it in the friend zone. So it’s fun to see the baby steps that Rafe takes towards enjoying everything about life and Avery every time they get together. It helps that Rafe’s best friends, Lucien and Trace as well as their wives, would like nothing more than for Avery and Rafe to connect. Because they can see how good she is for him.
Of course there is intrigue and subplots that add to the story. Rafe’s father has just been released from prison after 25 years inside and what he went away for may not yet be over. Rafe’s girlfriend isn’t ready to just let their relationship go and family skeletons are coming out of the closets. But, although they’re what moves the story along, it was second to my enjoyment of the relationship that was building between Rafe and Avery.
Like I said, I didn’t think anything could top my love for Trace and Ember. But this comes awfully close!
The synopsis does this story justice, it as is described. But what you miss in the description is the "in between". The banter with Loke, Rafe's dog. Or the goofy banter that makes up so much of Avery. She is just adorable. Head strong, independent, Rafe doesn't know what to make of her. But the more they interact, the more he can't seem to keep away from her. They have a few hiccups in the road, and one big hiccup when Rafe's fathers past catches them in the cross hairs. But we get our HEA, and it is just beautiful. A great trilogy to read!!!
I definitely recommend this book! It's not just worth your money, but worth your time as well!!
We learn more about Rafe, a talented wood worker who meets his match in genius baker Avery. The word play and silliness between these two jumps out at you from the page. It was such a joy to read about them and their entertaining cast of family and friends. Seriously. The scenes between Avery and her sister Natalke or bed friend Jessica are hilarious. I re-read entire passages, laughing each time. And don't get started on verbal gymnastics with Avery and Rafe. It's really a fun, fun read.
This is a book that I will return to and read over and over just like I do the other 2.
Beautifully Decadent takes place three years after Lucien and Darcy's story (Beautifully Forgotten). His buddies Trace and Lucien have been happily married with adorable toddlers. For three orphans that formed an everlasting bond, their little family of three has grown exponentially. Rafe is still living the single life and working hard on making furniture.
I knew from his introduction in Beautifully Damaged that Rafe was the more laid back of the three so when goofy, spacey and sweet Avery comes into town and gets hired on as Trace's new Pastry Chef and needs a place to live...it was just inevitable.
Their chemistry was undeniable and she was so carefree about everything there weren't any games to be played. Her loose tongue has her desires and attraction just flowing from her lips at times. And when she and her sister got together, it was pure entertainment. Together they were so fun!
Being the lighter story in this series, this was sweet love and just enough mystery to keep you gripped to the pages.
I'm so happy to have seen the St Agnes trio each get their much deserved happily ever afters.
In character with the previous books, this story is intense and heart-catching, I love the characters and you end up rooting for them to do the things that will help them recover.
This is a great series, I've already started reading them again and I've already read several of Ms. Fiore's other books. I think this is her genre and I sincerely appreciate the extra effort it takes to write a longer more complete story.
