Clean Read

Kristine Branton co-owns a bakery with her mother and sister in the small town of Cooper Glenn. She’s working herself to a frazzle struggling to keep the family afloat, with little help from them.

When Joe Lancaster moves back to town, Kristine literally drops into his arms and into his life—via a rickety ladder and an overly exuberant pit bull mix puppy.

Joe soon acknowledges having feelings for Kristine, but unfortunately, he had dated her big sister Lori when they were in high school, and Lori still has feelings for him.

Can Kristine find her way after a catastrophe event alters her world as she knows it? Will Joe find a place in her heart and life? Or will Lori’s jealousy destroy their budding romance?

2.0 out of 5 stars the icing on the cake..... 3 Jun 2014

Hmmm, well, apart from the usual "why are they treating me this way, oh woe is me!" drama queen isst thou. Painful in its execution as it is, it meets the mark, unfortunately quite low, of the early "mills and boon" heroine. I have read and loved these books for the past
X plus years and have always been proud of it. But this one is pushing it. Give yourself a pause before you buy.

A modern day kind of a Cinderella story where the youngest sister is put upon by her family to do their bidding but finds love by simply falling off a ladder into his arms, who just happens to be her sister's ex boyfriend from high school.Kristine is convinced Joe has come back to town to rekindle the relationship with her sister, but in truth she has deep feelings for him herself which she has to keep hidden from everyone because of her sister. However, the real truth is that Joe came back to town for Kristine who he always had strong feelings for. After some doubt on Kristine's part, the truth came out and makes for a happy ending. A very pleasant read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sweet, Clean Romance 19 May 2014
By HappyHeart1993 - Published on

I truly enjoyed The Icing on the Cake. It is, first and foremost, a good, clean romance.

What worked for me: Joe's character is one of kindness and compassion. His concern for Kristine is touching throughout the book. He's a good, strong hero that I believe most romance readers will like.

What nearly didn't work: Kristine is about as close as a woman can get to being a doormat. She carries the family bakery after her father dies, with little to no help from her sister, who claims the title of manager. Kristine pays her mother rent while the sister, Lori, and her 6-year old son have moved back and are living with them rent-free.

What didn't work: Lori is just horrible. From the get-go, she's selfish, petty, and mean-spirited. Joe hits the nail on the head when he says she was a mean girl before the movie. Then by the end of the book, she's miraculously changed. I wanted to reach into the book and smack Lori and her mother both.

Overall, though, this is a good romance and I'd recommend it to anyone who likes a nice, clean read. I did get a little tired of the soapbox about pit bulls being good dogs. I get it. Don't beat me over the head with it.

I love all of the books I have read by Rose Naramore. This new book is one of my favorites. It has the right blend of romance, family conflict and a bit of mystery. A really clean and fun romance. I can't wait for the next one.

This was sweet clean romance that I enjoyed. It's about two people, Kristine and Joe, who gone to school together. He was older and had gone out with her older sister. Aproximatley 14 years later they once again met up and they realize that the feelings they had years earlier were still there. Now they needed to figure out if the other was on the same page. This is their story. Oh yea the older sister wanted him back and would do anything to get him. Am looking forward to more books by Rosemarie Naramore.

It was really a sweet read.The characters were very decent.Joe was the best (i had wished he used little more cheesier lines).While the main character krissy was not far behind him, she was a simple girl who loved baking and had some difficulties in family matters. Even though it was very simple, I certainly was impressed by the way everything was so nicely sculptered in it.This is best suited for readers who prefer light romance Or If you are just looking for an light read with a cup of tea in the evening, this would be perfect.Even though I can't say it's been a great read, I could always give it the credit of a good book.
So go for the book fellas! Hope you enjoy the read.
