Review from Jeannie Zelos Book reviews.
I love contemporary romance with the Bad Boys in them...but ICE didn't really turn out to be that, more of just a famous boy. :( Yes, he's master of the one night stand and anti romance and love, hearts and flowers but that doesn't make him a bad boy in my eyes, just a cautious one.
So, we've the Reality show being filmed in a pie shop...seems a bit odd to me, but then so does the concept of “reality TV” – it's actually nothing like reality – would be my worst nightmare to go on one of those! I can see why Andrea has reservations – I would too. I liked Andrea, fun and quirky, and a loving mum and good friend. She's the back bone of small towns, the core that make everything flow but not what TV shows need – they want the rows, the bitching, the backstabbing – but they didn't get it from Andrea. What Ice and co did get though, was far too many moments where Andrea slipped, tripped, fell, and dumped pie everywhere. She wasn't always that clumsy surely so why now? To be honest first one was believable, surprise does stuff like that to anyone, but the rest took the romance into farce land for me. It detracted, wasn't funny just irritating.
I couldn't get into the whole Ice as famous yet in hiding, internet stalking etc and the show based on a pie shop at all. I kept wondering how it ever kept going, its a small shop/café and yet the staff numbers were large for a shop that seemed hardly ever open – not counting the days closed through disasters. The sex scenes between Ice and Andrea were pretty hot, but not enough to pull the story up from an OK for me. Too much shop and slapstick and not enough Ice/Andrea romance for me. Maybe I’m just overly critical, or had too much expectation. I hadn't read earlier books either, so that could factor although I doubt it. Never the less I'm one person and one view – you make your own decision :)
Priced at £1.49 for 188 pages, it was a bit short for me, didn't really give the romance time to develop but then I love long books, whereas others love novels they can read quickly or put down and pick up later.
Stars: 3. Not bad just not great either.

Delightful is book three in the Big Sky Pie series by Adrianne Lee. This book should come with a warning: This book will make you crave pie! If you love pie, you need to go ahead and have some on hand before you start reading this book because you will most definitely want it. And if you like to bake, it comes complete with the recipe of Molly McCoy’s Granny Smith Caramel Apple Pie!
When Molly McCoy and her office manager first opened the Big Sky Pie Shop, business was booming. But now, a few months in, things have slowed down. So Molly decides to have the pilot for a reality television show filmed in her shop.
Andrea loves her job managing things at the pie shop. She is willing to do whatever is necessary to insure that the shop does well, including agreeing with Molly to let the reality show be filmed here. Andrea is a single mother with two little boys to support.
The day the film crew showed up, in walks Ian Erikksen, or Ice, in his bad boy aviator sun glasses and sexy jeans. He is the poster boy for the typical bad boy. Andrea always seems to be attracted to the ‘bad boys.’ And true to her nature, as soon as Ice walked in, she started to sizzle.
“You don’t need to keep dumping pie on me,” he said in a husky voice that only she could hear. “If you want to get me out of my pants, sweetheart, all you need to do is ask.”
Andrea has two little boys to think of. She has to force herself to stop feeling this way towards the wrong type of guys. It’s time to turn over a new leaf and start looking for a man that could be a good father to her boys.
“Was she destined to only ever fall for Mr. “Hot, Sexy, but No Commitment” guys?” The Possibility brought on an aching sadness.”
Amidst the filming, spilled pie, broken freezers, health inspectors, celebrity reporters, and general mayhem, Andrea and Ice give in to the attraction that neither of them can fight. Ice feels something more for Andrea than he wants to admit. He reveals secrets to her he hasn’t admitted to anyone ever before. Still, he is not marriage and father material. His life is in Hollywood, not Montana.
“What is it about you,” he asked. “Why can’t I stop wanting you?”
This is a super sweet, both literally and figuratively, book. I really fell for both Ice and Andrea and wanted them to find their Happily Ever After. I love this series. Something about this pie shop. I can smell the pies, imagine all the goodies in the cases. What a wonderful calorie laden place to work it would be. I highly recommend this series and can’t wait to continue with book four, Decadent. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to go and have a piece of pie.

I have read the two previous books in this series, Delectable and Delicious, and enjoyed them so I jumped at the chance to read and review book three in the series.
We were reunited with characters we’ve met before and introduced to new ones but BiBi and her daddy still rubbed me the wrong way. At first the reality show plot put me off but Lee was able to reel me in by making people real even knowing cameras were rolling. Ice and Bobby, the producers of the show, had their show biz side and their personal side that was more palatable. There was so much going on between the show, the bakery, personal lives and town dynamics to name a few that there was never a dull moment. Ice and Andrea had immediate chemistry that sizzled on the page and while they had fun while casually hooking up Ice wasn’t looking for anything permanent and Andrea didn’t think he would be good step-daddy material to her two boys.
There was lots of loving but no real romance throughout. There was an unexpected happily ever after and nice closure but an epilogue would have been the whipped cream on the pie.
I look forward to reading book four in the series, Decadent, as well as other books written by Lee.
