Peanut Butter Kisses Reviews
3.25 starsPeanut Butter Kisses by Pepper Espinoza is a short and sweet novella that I thoroughly enjoyed. It’s told primarily by Josh’s viewpoint, and it was extremely easy to get wrapped up in both characters, and the pretty interesting storyline.Peter Summer is a successful pastry chef. He’s been a chef for over twenty years and is extremely popular among his peers. Josh Boothe has been working as Peter’s assistant, and is just starting to assist him with competitions. They are really becoming an established team in pastry competitions together. They're in the mist of discussing Josh becoming a partner and not just Peter's assistant within their business relationship. Josh is fascinated with Peter’s talent. He sees Peter as an artist who isn’t always appreciated for his talents and creativity like he should be. He’s intensely determined to keep Peter on top of his game, and believes that Peter’s creations are perfection. Josh has been attracted and emotionally attached to Peter for some time. One problem is Josh isn’t sure about Peter’s sexuality, much less how the older man feels about him.When Peter reveals to Josh that not only is his feelings returned, but he is Josh’s biggest fan, Josh is more than happy to do what he can to keep Peter in his life personally and professionally.I really liked this story. Both Peter and Josh were very likeable men. I liked that Josh and Peter seemed to care about each other on a more emotional level. Each was very supportive of one another’s careers and was each other’s biggest fans. It was interesting because in my opinion, Peter knows that although he might be on top of his game now, he’ll soon bow down to Josh’s talents and one day it will be Josh that takes the limelight. Peter really seemed okay with that. This story has a more HFN ending to it, but it’s a pretty positive one and I was satisfied both with the story and the ending.
As the candies in the title, this romance is sweet like sugar.Peter is a big pastry chef, he is at the top in every competition, but always second. He is again competing at a national level and again he has as an assistant Josh. Josh is a young chef who looks with starry eyes upon Peter: for Josh everything Peter creates is perfect, and when Peter loses, for Josh is almost a personal matter. Obviously Josh is in love with Peter but he has never had the courage to make a move on Peter, both since he doesn't judge himself worthy of the love of wonderguy Peter, and because he really doesn't know if Peter is gay, since the man never express an interest in him, other than for work.But this time Peter seems a bit more interested in Josh as a man than in Josh as a pastry assistant...The story is short, less than 40 pages, but really really sweet. I like above all the fact that Peter is really not a special guy, maybe he is even a bit overweight, and he is really a sweet guy; but for the loving eyes of Josh he is wonderful.http://www.amazon.com/dp/1602728518/?...
3.5 Stars.Just a little too short to get a complete connection to the characters but I really liked the bones of what was there. Very sweet without being overly so. I just wanted a smidge more of Josh's comfort of where they were going together to feel the full HEA.
Too short for my liking, but it’s a sweet storyWarning: This review might contain what some people consider SPOILERS. Rating: 6/10PROS: - The setting/occupation of the main characters is one that I know nothing about, and I found the details here and there about confectionaries interesting.- There’s a good depiction here of someone admiring his love interest almost to the point of worship.- The sexual payoff is pretty good. Espinoza establishes that Josh wants Peter but is afraid to act on his desires. So when Peter makes a move, the resulting scene is long and slow and detailed.CON:- Like most short stories, this one fell flat for me because I couldn’t help comparing it to what it could have been if the characters had had more room to develop.Overall comments: The guys here are sweet, and for readers who like short stories, this one’s probably a good choice. It left me wanting more.
Ah, the world of chocolate and toffee and pastry competition. That is so sweet without being too sugary. I really love the interaction between the two of them. Lovely story, perfect for a Hallmark Valentine's Day movie :p
Really sweet, but so short...
3.25 Really too short of a story.
I liked this book... it was short and very, very sweet!
In a way it felt like a chapter of a much longer book. But I was sort of glad we skipped the pining. Also, I got some serious craving reading it.
2.5 starsA light, fun read with a very sexy love scene, so I rounded to 3 stars. Yeah, I love me some man love. Sue me!
