Book 1, Delicious Desires
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Amara Maria Robles is a good girl. So good that she gave up her dreams of becoming a renowned pastry chef to help her parents with their struggling Mexican bakery. Yet her parents reject any changes she suggests, and refuse to sell her mouth-watering confections. Clearly being a good girl isn't paying off. So when her brother's sexy ex-best friend walks into the bakery, Amara's tempted to be very bad indeed...
After a scandal twelve years ago, resident bad boy Eric Valencia has returned to make things right with his family and friends. One glance at Amara and her wicked curves, however, and Eric finds himself thinking about how she'd feel beneath him-something he promised Amara's brother he would never think about, let alone do.
But this bad boy is in deep trouble...because Amara's determined to have her cake, and Eric, too.

Please make this into a movie!
Ok, someone seriously needs to adapt this series into movies!! I would 1000% watch them AND maybe it would bring back good romcoms :) But, anyway, this book was so great. I was rooting for Amara from that first page (my family does not own a bakery but omg I think I have lived that very first scene before) and Eric was an absolute dream. Even though a lot of their issues were of the "just talk to each other!" variety, it worked because there were reasons for why they wouldn't have that conversation that was so tied into who they were as characters. The only thing stopping me from giving this 5 stars is that I felt like Eric's issue with his mom was wrapped up a little too easily, but I think some of that is due to length and if anything was going to be shortchanged, I'm fine that it was that. Other parts of the story were just much more central and those all got their due.
I cannot express how refreshing it is to read a romance where the hero and heroine are both Mexican ... Not that I'm knocking mixed heritage but this book was just great .. I'm so very fortunate to have stumbled across this author .. Read Eric and Amara's story it doesn't disappoint!
What would life be like if you were lied to and it changed everything? Having a trouble past is the story of Eric's life. When he comes back home to start over, 12 years later, he sees Amara, whom he knew as a teen and sparks fly between them. There's only one problem. He's trying to rebuild his relationship with his ex best friend, Miguel, and there's one condition for that to happen. Miguel wants him to stay away from his sister...Amara. Uh oh!
This is a sweet romance of forbidden love, with some scorching scenes and a man that has an extremely sexy bedroom vocabulary. This is a story of loss, forgiveness and second chances.
