Gimme S'more (Hot Cakes #6) by Erin Nicholas

Spoiler Free

Oh, What The Hell, I LOVE THIS SERIES, PERIOD. I love Erin Nicholas and her creative mind. She has this way of presenting situations, creating compelling people, making you WANT to be friends with them and CARE about them, even when you are not reading about them.

Think about that for a minute. What person in Real Life doesn't wish that for themselves, to have those you know want to be your friends and care about you...Then think about what an accomplishment it is when authors are able to do just that with their characters in their books. It is not as easy as some authors make it look, either.

So my love for Erin Nicholas and this current series is serious.

We were given five guys who connected in college, each bringing something to the relationships they forged.
Two of them created a video game and the other three worked with them to market it, protect it, and make it all happen. They became brothers from other mothers and they loved each other unconditionally.

In this last entry, Gimme S'more brings into focus this support, caring, and love these guys have for each other. It is the foundation of who they are. We have been waiting for Ollie to wake up and understand he loves Piper and she loves him. It takes Piper making the decision to quit working for the guys and explaining when Ollie asks why that she loves him.

Ollie has been this character that has been the "Man/Child" of the group. He never remembers meetings, he is the creative force of the video game they sold for major bucks, and Piper is the glue that holds him together. He knows he will be lost without her and when she says she has to leave because of how she feels for him, his answer is to figure out a way for her to stop loving him.

What happens next is this journey Piper, and Ollie goes on. It is everything. It is revealing not only for Ollie but for Piper, too. It is this look at who people are and how they became the way they are, what needs they thought they would fulfill. How we can think we are doing things for another that is helping when it could be holding them back.

There is so much cover in this story and it was all handled so well. It was insightful, understandable, and made you think about how much we can impact another.

Oh, and the sexy times...Please, this is an Erin Nicholas book...Smokin', Delicious, and could I have S'mores, please...hahahahaha see how I did that!

So my love affair with Erin continues and you are so lucky to have all these books ready, just for you.
