Book Tour, Review, Giveaway: Whole Latte Love - Rachelle Ayala

Title: Whole Latte Love
Author: Rachelle Ayala
Genre: New Age, Romance
Investment banking intern Carina Chen doesn’t need any distractions - especially the sexy, guitar-playing barista she rooms with for the summer.
Free spirit Dylan Jewell appreciates the delightful universe of women who vie for his attention. His goal in life is to do good, make happy coffee, and help the homeless.
When Carina moves in, she insists on rules of conduct to quell her instant attraction to Dylan. But when her boss asks her to turn Dylan into a businessman, she can’t think of a reason not to take advantage of his hospitality.
Their chemistry is white hot, but Dylan refuses to play Carina’s game, unable to understand how he can fall in love with a woman who puts profits in front of people. When Carina realizes Dylan isn’t budging, she risks all to gain a single night with him. Will her gambit backfire or will Dylan discover Carina’s true heart before she runs away with his?
Set in Berkeley, California, Whole Latte Love is an opposites-attract romance mixing bluesy rock music, hot, steamy love scenes, and financial shenanigans.

My Rating:


Favorite Quotes:

“It’s not easy to say what comes from my heart.  But when I’m with you, all I know is you, all I feel is you, and all I want is you.”

“You became my focus, the pole that my compass pointed to.  Everything I did after meeting you was to get you to notice me, maybe even like me, and want to be around me.” 

My Review:

This is the first time I have read Rachelle Ayala’s work.  It was clear, easy to read, and a cute story that appeared to be a relatively tame hybrid of YA and NA.  For an old cougar like me, it was somewhat slow and lacked sizzle, which is not a bad thing for YA, but it just didn’t do much for me.  Although I am sure teens and twenty somethings would find it more than enjoyable.
