Genre: Romance, Chick Lit, New Adult
As the owner of Licked, an eclectic ice creamery and bar, Ryleigh Phillips doesn’t have time for that love stuff. Serving up Nibble My Nuts sundaes and Drunken Sailor boozy shakes are as close to an orgasmic affair as she’s had in months thanks to her expanding empire—until the night of her ten-year high school reunion.
When Ryleigh’s crush, gorgeous ex-football god Cameron Mathis, comes streaking into her life (literally—streaking), she begins to wonder if she really can have it all.
Wouldn’t it just figure that the moment you think life is perfect is when it falls spectacularly apart?
Enter Hunter Morgan, the contractor in charge of Licked’s renovations. Devastatingly handsome, and a smartass to boot, he’s got his eyes on Ryleigh from the moment he finds her passed out on his couch (yeah, that’s a long story). There’s just one tiny complication—he happens to be Cameron’s best friend.
When the lines between relationships and friendships blur, and it’s impossible to choose between two delicious flavors, what’s a girl to do? Taste a sample of each? Or go out and get LICKED?
Ryleigh is in her twenties and is the owner of a successful ice-cream shop called Licked. She goes to her high school ten year reunion and when she is about to leave before even actually attending the event, she bumps into her high school crush Cameron. The evening start off really well, but the next morning she is welcomed by Cameron’s hot roommate Hunter. She thought she finally has the new chance with Cameron, but she’s actually attracted to Hunter. Ryleigh bought the rooms next to her ice-cream shop and as her contractor doesn’t keep up with the timeline, Hunter comes to the rescue. Cameron is away on business and as Ryleigh and Hunter spend quite some time together, they can’t deny the feelings they feel for each other.
It’s a really nice feel-good book. It has a lot of funny moments and likeable characters. I also really liked the ice-cream shop with ice-creams, which all had fun names. It’s definitely a good start to the series.
