About the author:
Elizabeth Lynx is not a robot, that’s for sure. At least she says she’s not. She is also not a space alien. How do I know this, because she was born in Baltimore Maryland in the 1970’s when no one wanted to be in Baltimore Maryland so why would her parents say that if it weren’t true. Of course she has had her suspicions growing up and is still in a continual search for evidence that backs up her space age theories.
To bide her time she writes about ‘normal’ people and their sexy romantic lives. Her husband chooses to put up with her theories and paranoid musings. Her two little boys help her see that perhaps she isn’t an alien but more of a climbing rock. This theory is new, so she needs more time to develop it further.
The décor is more IKEA now, instead of high end furniture. A simple white fabric couch with a blue rug and dark wood coffee table make up his living room. This entire space would fit into the living room of his old place.
I walk in and look out the window. Turning my head slightly, I can see him watching me as he empties his pockets on the plain white desk by the front door.
“Where is Winston?” I ask nervously. This is unsettling to me. I am used to Henrik having a large place to live, fancy cars, and a butler. Not that I am only interested in those things, but I really wanted to marry that condo that overlooked Lake Michigan. Then there’s Winston, he was like the man-servant I always dreamed of having. Most girls dream of their weddings or future kids, I dreamed of having a butler.
Not so much a butler, but someone who would bring me cake on demand. If I woke at three in the morning and wanted cake, I imagined I could ring a bell and within minutes, my man-servant would have a beautiful piece of cake on a tray for me. Of course, in my imagination the man was super sexy. As if Henrik was a man-servant who’s only job is to give me cake. Oh God, this thought is really turning me on.
“Winston no longer works for me. I had to let him go a few weeks ago.”
My breath hitches and I feel large lump in my throat. I rapidly blink back the tears forming in my eyes, but it is of no use. I bring my hands to my face and a small sob escapes. Almost instantly, I feel Henrik’s warm hands on my shoulders turning me so he can wrap me in his arms.
“Morgana what is wrong? I don’t understand why you’re crying. I gave Winston a good recommendation, and I know that a nice couple who lives in my old building was considering hiring him. I am quite sure he will be fine.” He strokes me head as my tears dampen his shirt.
“But will I Henrik? I never got…I never got to…” I can’t get the words out as my voice wobbles.
Henrik pulls away slightly and crouches so we are eye level. “Never what, Morgana?”
I take a shuttering breath as I finally explain, “I never got to have him serve me cake! Like in the middle of the night or just after an epic shower. Oh God, the shower! I just remembered the shower. Please tell me you still own your old place?”

*** ARC kindly provided by the author for an honest review. ***
I loved Morgana and Henrik in the first book, and for book #2, Elizabeth Lynx did it again!!!I fell in love all over again with them. I was so eager to read about them again. From the moment this ARC popped up on my Kindle; I went ballistic! I read it in less than two hours, and damn it was a hell of a cake!!! I definitely marry cake but I would absolutely marry Henrik.
You can’t read this book as a standalone and trust me, this read is so worth it. Why just enjoy one piece of cake when you could have it twice?
Morgana is one of my favorite female characters and I enjoyed seeing her evolution into such a confident and strong woman. Yes, she loved cake but she loved also Henrik as much.
Her “problems” were so hilarious to follow and it was such a blast! Sometimes I was a little bit frustrated but each moment was well balanced with the right amount of humour, irony and a pinch of impertinence.
She had to face the consequences of her relationship with Henrik and the choices she made weren’t the best but she had to move on.
“His words seize me. I have never heard Henrik say please before, let alone beg. As I look back at him, I see pain in his eyes. He tugs me close so the warmth from his body cradles my skin.”
“What have you done the past few days? Nothing. Sitting on your couch, talking to Pillow, and drinking yourself stupid doesn’t count as being productive.”
I felt bad for him because he tried his best to protect Morgana, even It was sometimes tactless. He was crazy in love with her and I really liked the aspect of being a better man and how his relationship with Morgana helped him to open up and put things into perspective. Now Henrik wasn’t having rules, but making this time some “Anti-rules” and as usual it was priceless!
And the sex parts? Oh my !! The author could bring some heat into the place and it was so freaking and smoking hot! The incredible chemistry is still there and it was fireworks everywhere!
Morgana+Henrik+cake+ sex = a terrific combo!
“However, you know me; I’m not an unreasonable man. I will still answer your question…slowly…as I fuck you.”
Besides the very hilarious and sexy tone, there was depth also and I really appreciated the development characters, we could sense that them grew up, moving to a step forward.
We also have some insights into Morgana’s life, about her siblings and it was great.
I could read about them for hours and never get bored. I don’t want to post some spoilers here, but I encourage you to read this series; the reading was flowed, writing in a smart way, that could make you laugh for hours! People were looking at me like crazy (I started this book on the train) and it cracked me up so hard, almost to tears!
Thanks Elizabeth Lynx for this brilliant series, with a lot of amazing characters, whom by the way, deserved to have their story as well!You have to read it and enjoy his delightful piece of cake! I forgot: they lived happily ever after together and have a lot of … cakes to eat! So high five, it was entertained from the beginning until the end, through the funny times, the sex parts and obviously the frustrated ones but I just loved it!!
