Summary from

Edible, delicious, delectable.

Rachel Langley is more than familiar with those three words in her line of work. After all, she spends her afternoons and evenings creating desserts so divine that your mouth will water and your taste buds will tingle.

They aren’t, however, the words she would have ever expected to think of when she locks eyes with a certain lawyer she knows only as Cole.

With each encounter, the infuriatingly persistent man becomes more impossible to resist, and edible is the exact word that comes to mind.

Crave, demand, covet.

Cole Madison knows exactly what he wants, and Rachel Langley is it. From the moment he spotted her at Whipped, he knew he wanted to grab hold and take a bite.

However, the woman has enigmatic moves, avoiding him at every turn.

But not for much longer.

Rachel’s time is up, and as far as Cole is concerned, he’s waited too long for a taste of what he desires. Nothing, including the woman herself, will stop him from consuming what he hungers for.

The only question left is: Who will take the first bite?

My review:

The final installment in the Exquisite series was 2nd best!   Edible is the story of Rachel Langley, sister of Mason (book 1) and Cole Madison, lawyer and friend of Josh Daniels (book 2).

First thing you need to know about this book is there is abuse in it.  Domestic violence isn’t something I like to read about, but it was handled delicately in this book.  But you should know it’s there.

Cole and Rachel have been eyeing each other since the second book, and they finally meet up in unlikely circumstances.  Cole can no longer deny his attraction, so he asks Rachel to give herself to him for one week.  Since Rachel has issues with trust (due to the domestic violence), she agrees but tells Cole he can’t touch.  Well, you can imagine how that goes….

I can’t give too much else away, but I will say that what I liked about this book and what differentiated it from the first two was their was no drama between Cole and Rachel.  All the drama was between Rachel and Mason.  Mason was kind of a dick in this book, and despite him being a big brother, it wasn’t justified.  While I would agree that Rachel and Cole’s relationship moved fast, when you meet “the one”, you know.  Mason eventually stopped being a dick, but it was pretty out of character and kind of annoying.

Good ending to the series, especially liked the epilogue.
