A Beautiful Taste by Lilliana Anderson--A Review


It's never easy to go back. That's something chef, Bradley Rae is sweating bullets about as the date of his school's kayaking team reunion draws near. When his friend and teammate, Elliot Roberts, convinces him to go, he thinks he'll be fine going back there. After all, chances are, she won't be there at all. It’s been almost ten years. Maybe she she’s moved away. Maybe he won’t see her at all...

Dakota Morgan is a girl with many regrets, and Bradley Rae is on top of that list. You see, she did something - she didn't wait five minutes, and that tiny amount of impatience changed the course of her life forever. 

When her father sets up a fundraising reunion for their family owned kayaking club, her heart beats out of control when she sees Brad's name on that list. Part of her wants to refuse to go so she doesn't have to face him. But a larger part of her needs to see him, even if it's just a window into what might have been...

When Brad and Dakota meet again, will sparks fly, or will the past remain firmly in the past? And what about secrets? Can they survive the reality of what that one split decision, made all those years ago, has done? Or will they let it all go again?


Well don't you just love the cover on this book?    I could get lost in the cover alone, allowing my imagination to take a romp.

Anderson's a Beautiful Taste is a part of six books in the Beautiful series, but can definitely be read as a stand alone and is considered contemporary romance or YA .   As romance stories go, it is a lovely tale and I was hopelessly in love with both characters, although  Brad Rae?    Big Swoon!

The characters were very well developed and fleshed out.  The story moved at a good pace with several surprises along the way.   And it ended at a good place.   I had not intended to finish the story in one sitting, but I found myself doing exactly that, totally intriqued and invested by the story at hand.

If you love romance, try Anderson's, A Beautiful Taste.    It'll surely warm your cockles on a lazy afternoon!

I rated this a 4 Wink Read!
