    1. Cake is a delicious and sexy tale about Wren Davis, a young art student and bike messenger. One of her delivery stops is the wickedly hot, famous Russian artist Gregori Ivanov. Over the course of a year, they formed a close friendship. Wren has longingly watched from a distance as he creates magnificent pieces of art and women come and go out of his life, including his ex-wife. He cultivates a bad boy persona that people come to expect from him. But Wren sees right through the façade and has be [...]

    2. 3.5 starsBuddy read with AngeJust in case you need an incentive to read this story I thought I'd tell you that Lauren Dane based the character of Gregori on aerialist Brandon Pereyda (is anyone else drooling along with me?!):Wren is an art student who works as a bike messenger part time to pay her way. In the months she has spent delivering parcels to artist Gregori she has fallen hard for the bad boy artist and is determined to make him see her as more than a friend. Gregori is hot property in [...]

    3. Cake by Lauren Dane is a delicious bite size read if you’re looking for a quick and sexy romance.I thought that Wren and Gregori were both likeable characters who suited each other perfectly. Wren was a sassy, take charge, career-minded woman and Gregori was a talented Russian artist bad boy whom I took an instant liking to. I liked the gradual buildup of Wren and Gregori’s relationship which made it all the more genuine. I also enjoyed their interactions and the dialogue in the story. Plent [...]

    4. Joint review originally posted here: thebookpushers/2013/09/10/MinnChica: I adored Dane’s writing, so anytime she puts out anything, I’m all over it. Given the fact that Gregori is tatted, pierced, and has a mohawk, well… I couldn’t put this quick novella down. I adored the romance between these two, and thought that Dane did a fabulous job telling us a sexy and sweet story in only 80 short pages. I have to say though, I really hope that we get to see more from this group of friends!!E: [...]

    5. 17 August 2014: $0.99 on KindleThis is a story that's incredibly easy to read and get immersed in. Both main characters are likeable, and I was glad to watch them find their way together. However, something was missing. I can't even really lay a finger on it, but something kept this from being an amazing read.Check out my full review at my blog or booklikes3.5 starsReview to comeBuddy read with Sarah

    6. I really enjoyed this novella. Lauren Dane has a way of creating strong heroines who are likeable and confident in their own skin without having to be a bitch (excuse my language). I liked Wren immediately. She's is sassy, smart and is following her dreams of being an artist. She's not into drama and playing games. Gregori is a famous artist who has tattoos, piercings and a bad boy rep. He's built walls around his emotions and makes a point of having no personal attachments with women. That is u [...]

    7. Cake by Laura Dane4 StarsFirst I want to say I really liked this book. There was no drawn out scenes, the heroine wasn’t whiney about not getting what she wanted and there was no secret waiting to be revealed. It was refreshing. With that being said it was wayyyyyy too short!!!! I have had make out sessions that lasted longer than this read and it frustrated me!!!! I mean this in a good way…I wanted more!!! Wren is a bike messenger who works her ass off making deliveries while trying to beco [...]

    8. Shamefully, I put off reading this book for quite some time. This was a netgalley arc.Whats really frustrating about the whole this is that this book was actually excellent.Engaging characters, that I enjoyed and connected with. Gregori (Russian) is a successful artist and Wren is his delivery girl.Wren is also an art student and quite talented herself. These two find that they have much in common and bond over their similarities while sipping on tea and munching down sweet treats. (I loved that [...]

    9. ARC review: Cake by Lauren DaneRating = 4.25/5 Caliber SEAL: AWESOME READ!Final Verdict: Sizzling chemistry and a Russian hero = Win! Review goes live at 00:00 hours MVT on September 11, 2013!

    10. Cute 3 star book that I was enjoying, up until the end when Ms Independent Wren flies across the country to stalk the guy who left her because he was afraid of his feelings. Would have loved it if SHE had left him after his running from his feelings and he has to follow her and make a big declaration. Super annoyed by the ending. Just no. Became a 1 star book to me.

    11. I do believe I am Grigori. Ok I'm not hot, Russian, a guy , or über rich successful artist Ok I should probably rethink that statement.

    12. Review courtesy of Dark Faerie Tales.Quick & Dirty: Strong female character who follows her heart and a hero that is to die for.Opening Sentence: She heard the music as she ascended the stairs and knew he’d be working.The Review:There are not many novellas that I can truly say that I remember after an hour much less days after reading them. This is a stellar exception. The story was so well built and consuming that I tumbled into the world and remained there until the final words were read [...]

    13. Who doesn't love cake? I can almost always find room for a slice when it's this tasty. Although, the frequently nibbled sweets in this novella were more macaroons than cake.Disclaimer #1 - I received a free ARC of this novella via NetGalley and Harlequin in exchange for an honest review.Disclaimer #2 - I'm (barely) acquainted with Lauren Dane; I hosted her during her Once and Again blogtour, and enjoyed drinks at the same table for a few hours last year.What I loved about this novella: the roman [...]

    14. More like a 2.75/5 stars. Full review to come.Full ReviewWren Davis has been working as a bike messenger just to make some extra cash while she's in art school. While on her rounds she meets and becomes friends with famous artist Gregori Ivanov, who has a bit of a reputation. Wren decides she wants nothing else more than Gregori, but first she needs to get him to leave behind all the women who burned him in the past - namely his crazy ex-wife who always comes crawling back again. Can Wren get Gr [...]

    15. Reading about art student Wren and her aspiring career was quite entertaining. She is a woman that knows what she wants, and what she doesn’t want. And best of all- she knows how to get it. Gregori, the down-to-earth, bad boy artist is the object of lust in this books and it stands to reason why. He is sexy, smart, and deep. His intimacy issues can be rather annoying and predictable at times, but Wren, being the saucy little number she is, spices things up a bit.Wren also has her cousin, Kelse [...]

    16. 3.75 stars CAKE by Lauren Dane is her latest contemporary romance storyline. CAKE is a stand alone novella and is a welcome addition to your reading library.Wren Davis has been attracted to Gregori Ivanov for a very long time and knows that Gregori feels something for her in return. Their relationship is friendly, flirty and never crosses the line from friendship to sex. But Wren wants something more from Gregori and she refuses to be pushed aside.Gregori’s failed marriage and subsequent relat [...]

    17. I really enjoyed this story and although it was short, it definitely didn’t lack in romance, story, characters or sex!! ;)Gregori was such an interesting character not only in appearance but in attitude. Tattooed, alpha, muscled, colored mohawk, pierced ;), Russian, sexy, charming, smart, confident, artistic and he loved his sweets. He was totally yummy and I could not get enough of him. *sigh*Wren was a great character also and I loved these two together. She was so strong and smart and sassy [...]

    18. Why I read it: I’d heard good things about this novella, which is part of the Cosmo Red Hot Reads line from Harlequin, launched this month so I requested a review copy via NetGalley. Cake releases on September 15 but is available for pre-order now.What worked for me (and what didn’t): I must admit that this book had a lot more story than I was expecting. This probably says something about me more than anything, but I was kind of expecting to jump straight to the sex and for there to be not m [...]

    19. My Review:This is a selection from the Cosmo's Red Hot Reads and boy does this book scream RED HOT!! This is my first Lauren Dane book and it will not be my last. This was a treasure and my first novella that wasn't tied to another series. I enjoyed this steamy read. This novella captured a lot of emotion in a short book and also a lot of steamy sex. I love strong female characters and Wren is exactly that. She knows what she wants and goes for it no questions asked. She's strong confident and f [...]

    20. Wren Davis, a talented art student and bike messenger wants one thing, to take her friendship with the famous artist and bad boy, Gregori Ivanov. Gregori oozes sex appeal, has the bad boy, devil may care artist facade down pat. But that is not who he really is. After having a hard childhood and having adult relationships where people just use him for their own gain, he has a hard time keeping Wren at bay. Wren is not like anyone Gregori knows. She'd beautiful, talented in her own right, and want [...]

    21. My Rating: ★★★★VERY GOOD: The characteristics of a 4 star book include: a great story; I loved the characters; and there was an interesting plot and unique story elements; there may have been a few odd things kept the story from being amazing. I would read it again and I would recommend it to a friend. My Thoughts:I actually enjoyed Cake very much and it ranks somewhere between a 3½ and 4 for me but I'm going with 4★'s because I enjoyed the liked the characters and the pace of the sto [...]

    22. Harlequin through NetGalley gave me an ARC copy of this book for my honest review4 1/2 starsGregori is a bad ass artist; he only shows people his public persona and doesn't get close to women. Wren is an art student working as a bike messenger; she has wanted Gregori for a while and is ready to make her move. One night isn't enough for either of them can Wren show Gregori that things can be different with her, will Gregori realize that he needs Wren or will they both end up broken? I really like [...]

    23. Wren Davis is an art student as well as a bike delivery messenger who has befriended notorious artist, Gregori Ivanov. Gregori has a reputation of being a hardened lover as well as temperamental, but Wren sees a whole different side to him. When she shows up, they talk and have tea and cookies or sometimes cake, which has Wren supporting a huge crush on the artist.Gregori doesn't know how to classify his relationship with Wren, on one hand he tries to put her in the employee compartment, but she [...]

    24. *Harlequin through NetGalley gave me an ARC copy of this book for my honest review*Cake is a delicious treat from Lauren Dane! I spent the entire story lusting after Gregori Ivanov , he was everything I want in a hero, sexy, dominant, and caring. Wren Davis was strong, knew what she wanted and wasn’t afraid to go after it. I love a girl who’s not afraid of who she is or what she wants. Naive, virginal heroines have become so poplar and I love that Ms. Dane stayed away from that! These two he [...]

    25. I received a free ARC of this novella via NetGalley and Harlequin in exchange for an honest review.I like Lauren Dane's books, but this one wasn't for me. I couldn't get into the story and sometimes I got bored. The characters were average, Gregori could be more bad boy maybe. He was so coward to get into a relationship, I thought I might strangle him. It was short, but still everything happened slowly for me. Wren was better, but she was ultimately shy about to share her work with him. And the [...]

    26. He was a visual buffet, and she was really hungryCake was my introduction to Lauren Dane, and we got along famously. Cake is a sexy, short novella that hit all my sweet spots. I have a weakness for cookies and cake, but having a hot brooding artist with tattoos, pierced nipples, and a Mohawk to share them with is another level of sugar that I enjoyed every minute of. The witty banter and sexual chemistry between Gregori and Wren had me glued to my Kindle from beginning to the final satisfied sig [...]

    27. LOVED LOVED LOVED the heroine is this novella.She was confident and went after what she wanted but also knew when she deserved more from her man.Good stuff!I feel a little misled though - there wasn't enough cake in the story lol This was my first story by Dane but it won't be my last.

    28. 3.5 starsI thought this mostly did a good job with the shorter length, and I loved the settings (Seattle and New York!), but something about the end didn't totally work for me. But still. I liked this a lot.

    29. I read this book as part of Cosmo red Hot reads box set and liked this short story the least. There was no depth to the story or characters.
