I love Molly and Drake! In Kitchen Promises, you get both Molly's point of view and Drake's just like in Kitchen Scandals. I love getting both views! You get to view Molly's pregnancy hormonal rants, desires and just how sexy Drake is! You also get to read Drake's desires and just how protective he is of his family.
Molly and Drake are one of those couples who have everything going for them. I love that they have this great blended family together. Molly has a daughter, Stella. Michael is such a great guy and is so funny! He is not related to Molly or Stella, but has been a part of their lives for so long and has helped Molly raise Stella. Drake has a son name Liam who does split spending time between Drake and his mother. It's so great that Liam and Stella get along so well. There is no fighting or hostility toward one another. On top of that, Molly is expecting twins!
Just like in the other novels, there's no lack of very hot moments between Molly and Drake. Their chemistry together is so great. Drake is dominating, but wants to please and pleasure Molly so much. Molly eventually was put on bed rest. Poor lady was not liking it! She was still aching for action from Drake. Drake trying to be the sensible one would try not to give into her desires. As much as I like reading about their hot moments together, I was peeved when Drake gave into temptation. When that happened, I was thinking, "Are you two crazy! You're supposed to take it easy! The babies!"
Some of Molly's past would visit her in her dreams. She would also have nightmares about her past. Molly does have an encounter with someone who looks like this monster from her past. Everyone else knows him by a different identity. Molly starts to get threatening messages from someone who knows her background and threatening to expose it if she doesn't comply with his demands. Not many others know this part of her life. This person so much wants to ruin what she has going for her now as a form of payback. So Molly is left with either she gives up everything or fights back.
Kitchen Promises is such a great ending to the series! I have enjoyed this adventure with Molly and Drake. If you haven't read this series yet, make sure you read them in order to get a feel for how Molly and Drake's story builds up (Kitchen Affairs, Kitchen Scandals.) This is another great series I enjoyed by Brooke Cumberland!
My Rating: Five Stars!
Coming February 4, 2014
