    This is written in the first person which isn't generally a style I enjoy Unfortunate this book wasn't the exception to thatThe writing is choppy and kinda all over the place Tony What was that all about?Max calling Adam 'kid' every time they speak to each other gets really old really fast Or 'coffee lover' or 'bad boy' ick in fact anything other than 'Adam'That and the winkingThere's so much winking going on that to the outsider it must look like some sort of weird secret coded language There are mistakes too At one point Max puts his hand on Adam's knee and then in the next sentence Adam wishes Max would put his hand on his kneeThe sex is boring and badly written with little or no foreplay but there are magical condoms that appear from nowhere when needed although there is no talk of lube or prep The writing is juvenile and the character are one dimensional and lack depth It's all so dramatic it's like a bad soap opera I started skipping at 40% tried to stick it out but just couldn't read any so DNF at 65%ARC provided in exchange for an honest review

    Much dramaI liked the book but I could have loved it if it didn't feel like the author tried to fill it to much drama the characters had to many issues for my likingBut the book was sweet and the storyline in itself was good and the characters was described okayThe writing style is easy so the story was uick to readIt's a 35 stars but I'm marking it at 4 because even though I'm not all over the top for this book maybe others are

    This is the second book I have read from this author I'm enjoying her writing style and how much her book pulls you into the storyAdam Prescott was looking for a job that will help him pay for school so he didn't have to beg his family for help He applies for a job at Beans which he seems to spend most of his time in anyway so why not get paid to be there He is interviewed by Maxwell Lyons who obviously is sexy as sin and he immediately crushes on the store's ownerMaxwell Lyons doesn't seem to believe love is in the plan for him He has secrets that he believes will push anyone he falls for away because it happened with Tony But the moment he lays eyes on Adam he is immediately smitten Hey if he can grow a boner from hugging Adam then it's obviously trueThese two go through a roller coaster of drama because neither wants to open up and share their secrets One's scared of being rejected the other's scared of being pitied Both are truly made for each other they just have to figure out how to meet in the middleA sweet love story worth your time to readI received an ARC for an honest review

    Adjectives and adverbs ahoy glare at him incredulouslyMax laughs jokinglyhe asks in a deliciously deep voice that reminds me of dark molten chocolatehis lips molding into a hearty smile as he absorbs my reaction to the wafting scentI inhale another whiff of the comforting scent before I drink with gusto nearly burning my tongue on the scalding hot liuid A lot of sentences in that vein Then we've got just the plain nonsensical stuff He really is a dick no pun intended I really don't understand that What pun? Where is the pun? We've breached the subject of my friendsI start feeling kind of dizzy and light hearted'I don't like people getting too close to me I'm worried they'll find out too much about me' 'I wasn't trying to break down your walls' I tell him uietly 'I was just trying to get to know you' Max tells a group of people including Adam's friends that he's just recently met that they're the closest thing he has to family Likenot weird At all Adam is a student filmmaker and his big project ends up being a film on Max's dad who's suffering from Alzheimer's Well he films this whole documentary style film and submits it to a review board for something or other then shows it to Max and their friends and there are tears and yadda yadda and I'm sitting here going Ummmpretty sure that's not legalSee there's such a thing as a media release form And since Max's dad would be considered incompetent that release form would need to be signed by Max Even if Max would never in a million years consider suing Adam for the film there's no way Adam's school would have accepted the entry without one and it's also fairly unlikely that the home Max's dad resided in would have allowed Adam in to film without such a consent form I hate it when authors write about shit they don't know

    Beans is a warm comforting blanket to the primary and secondary characters in this sweet MM romance The two main characters Adam and Max both have their own in depth storylines and each of their characters are fully explored by author Morgan Shaw Shaw also gets kudos for creating a solid cast of supporting characters – wouldn’t be surprised if one or of them show up in a future story of their ownA jaw dropping story twist related to Adam’s family dynamics towards the end fuses both surprise and inexplicable acceptable and understanding on than one count to the storyline Max keeps his father’s health condition a secret from Adam and all of his friends and colleagues even though he really shouldn’t have or wouldn’t have needed to all things considered Regardless this secret – and his actions surrounding it – almost leads to him losing Beans Max and Adam endure their fair share of self imposed angst yet they figure out how to resolve underlying issues – Max’s impending loan payoff and Adam’s attempts to pay for college – while working through their personal and relationship insecurities to arrive at their HEA These two are good guys deep down who belong together and together through help from their friends grow into a strong couple This book promises an entertaining story with new plot twists not the same old story enjoyable main characters strong secondary characters delicious coffee and a dog

    A sweet romance with interesting main and supporting characters Max owns Beans the coffee shop at the center of the story Adam needs money to pay for film school so he applies for a job at Beans There is an instant attraction between Max and Adam which becomes the main story There is a lot of bouncing back and forth between Max Adam pushing each other away for what I consider artificially inflated crises For example Max worries if Adam will still want him when he finds out about his Father who is in an institution due to his dementia That is just not a reason you leave someone you love Adam worries about Max not accepting him because his family rejected him when he admitted he was gay Again Max is also gay so why would that be a reason to drop someone you love?However behind all this is a sweet romance friendship friends that become family and good coffee There is an interesting twist near the end And a wonderful HEA with no cliffhanger I think there are supposed to be other books set in the Beans world and I look forward to reading themI received this book free for an honest review

    Salted Caramel is a wonderful story of passion and love Max and Adam meet at Beans the coffee shop Adam has been a regular at for awhile but is now applying for a job at and Max is the owner and interviewer Their attraction is immediate but their relationship doesn't happen immediately They become friends first and flirt the whole time The sexual tension is pretty thick When they finally give in it's pretty sexy But Max runs away from his feelings and Adam is hurt of course They work their way back to each other with help from an adorable abandoned puppy named Aslan I think Aslan is actually my favorite character in Salted Caramel There are many obstacles to Max and Adam being happy together Max's tendency to shut down and run away Adam's obnoxious mother and Adam ending up leaving the country for a job But in the end they get their HEA and it's pretty sweet The whole book is sweet and sexy and well written The supporting characters too are great and I hope there are books coming for them I received an ARC for an honest review
