Review Rating: 4 LIGHTNING BOLTS
Review: Sweet Cravings is....well, anything but sweet, at least when it comes to the sexual nature of this book. But it's a fun, sexy little story that makes for a quick, yet satisfying read. The story is in first person, which is okay for a shorter read, I found. I enjoy a good story that mixes pasty chefs and some hot lust. This one definitely has that. It's hot! There wasn't much time for characterization, but it turned out fine because this was meant to be a story to turn down the thermostat, but the hot scenes weren't overdone by any matter. I enjoyed reading Sweet Cravings and the authors's voice really shines. I'd like to see what else Ms. Lefoy has to offer.
Night Owl Reviews
Ooh la la! Eva Lefoy definitely turns up the heat with this sweet and savoury erotic contemporary treat! Violet Cunningham might be acting out of the ordinary because of a sugar rush but her bold moves made me wish I was more like her! Even though she was much more daring than me I found her so easy to relate to and I’d love to have a friend or sister just like her. It is no secret that I love well-written curvy heroines and Violet was one of the best. She was so realistic, she had insecurities and yet she wasn’t someone I would pity. Chef Max is magnificent! I love heroes who have accents and if they are bearing chocolate treats it can’t beat my idea of heaven. I loved the attraction between this couple. I found myself blushing furiously while reading and still feeling completely jealous of the heroine. Made me want to get right out there and find a local Chamber of Commerce event. This was the perfect break from my hectic day and it is sure to be one I read over and over again. I cannot wait to see what else this author has to offer.
Let me be honest; I’m not a fan of French pastries and desserts but Mon Dieu, Eva Lefoy completely whets my appetite with her short and steamy story. My favourite heroines are curvy gals and the only thing better than a big beautiful heroine is one who has a larger than life attitude and the aplomb to go after what she wants. Now Violet isn’t perfect, she has insecurities and flaws which to me just makes her more interesting, more believable. I love when I can relate to the heroines and in Violet I felt as if I made a friend. And really who wouldn’t want the sexy Chef Max who has a delicate touch with sweets and a deft touch with the heroine’s body? Can I say I’m jealous of the heat from this couple? Ohh la la, but they steam up the kitchen and the bedroom. I so enjoyed this story as it was the lunch time read I loved how swift the story was yet I didn’t feel as if it were sacrificing the integrity of the character’s personalities. If all Eva Lefoy’s characters are this easy to relate to I’ll definitely be adding her to my must read list.

An Interview with Eva Lefoy
By Holly Hewson for The Romance Studio
HH: Eva, thank you so much for talking with us at TRS. Your featured book is Sweet Cravings. What can you tell us about this sexy story?
EL: This is a foodie romance that begins the moment my heroine, Violet, sees the raspberry cream puffs of her dreams, and the hot French-trained chef who made them. Violet and pastry chef Max hook up in the kitchen and then the ride gets a bit bumpy from there â€“ but there’s always dessert on the menu!
HH: What do you like best about Violet and why will readers identify with her?
EL: Violet is a BBW, she’s a size 16 or 18; she’s not a size 4 girl. She loves food and she loves men, but of course fears that men won’t like her due to her size or shape. Then she meets Max, and wowsa! There’s a man who likes her just the way she is.
HH: What do you like best about Max and why will readers love him?
EL: He’s very genuine about his interest in her and gives Violet space and time to get over some of her fears. He doesn’t come on too strong, but he doesn’t give up either. He knows what he likes!
HH: What did you enjoy most about writing this story?
EL: The research! The writing group helped me make raspberry cream puffs and they were so yummy.
HH: What do you think will most appeal to readers about this story this holiday season?
EL: Violet and Max really turn up the heat in the kitchen. When readers need a quick pick-me-up or a break from their over-stressed holiday shopping, they can slip into the reading room with a cup of cocoa or a glass of wine and have a great time!
HH: How do you feel your own personal experiences influence your writing?
EL: Well like Violet I’m not a size 4 either! I also like desserts, but I’m an avowed chocolate lover. I tend to write about what I know and I do have a background in the restaurant industry. My current day job is in commercial insurance and nobody wants to read about that! Unless it’s a fire in a big warehouse...hmmmm...
HH: What else do you have in store for lucky readers?
EL: I have a LOT of books coming out soon from Decadent Publishing! They include:
The Trouble with Memories â€“ a Science Fiction Romance w/Martians!
Perfect Ride â€“ a MM contemporary romance featuring Bull Riders
Lover Enslaved â€“ a MM contemporary romance in their 1 Night Stand series
Download my Love â€“ a Science Fiction Romance featuring robot love!
HH: What are you reading at the moment?
EL: I am reading anything I can get my hands on that’s short and *hot*!
HH: What do you like best about this time of year?
EL: The ability to spend time inside reading and writing. Generally, I like to be out on the hiking trail but I also like to take it easy now and then. The short days encourage one to slow down a little.
HH: Where can readers find you online?
