Review – Donut Leave Me

Donut Leave Me; One of the Boys (the Donut Collaboration) (Series)
by Teresa Crumpton (Author)

This review is from: May 28, 2018 By Kay Daniels (Kindle Edition-Goodreads)
Heat Level:🔥

Part of the Donut Collaboration for National Donut Day, Donut Leave Me is a short, sweet story that focuses more on the relationship between daddy and daughter than a HEA love type of relationship.

Forest works at Belladonna restaurant as a pastry chef and doesn’t meet his daughter until she is eight years old. He had a one night stand years ago which resulted in the birth of his daughter, Ella. When a woman shows up on his doorstep and finally reveals to Forest that he has a daughter, only at the time when she is in the final stages of cancer and realizes that she can no longer care for her daughter. Selfish, sure, but Forest quickly comes to grips with what she did vs. being mad at her when he hears her reasons.

The story escalates quickly leaving Forest to raise his grieving daughter alone. Luckily Forest has a pseudo family with everyone at the restaurant who is willing to step in and help out. With such a heavy storyline and this being a short story, there is little room for romance. There is a spark between the bakery owner, Jax, and Forest, but perhaps with a longer book this could have been explored deeper.

I love the relationship Forest builds with his daughter, but it would have been nice to have a bit more love for a romance book.

But my past is dark….
How dark you ask?

I’ve committed unspeakable acts. Sins so vile, so dirty they are without redemption. I thought I was beyond saving until I met her-Reese.

Beautiful, sexy, and enticing. Her body sends passion coursing through my veins. In her, I’ve met my fated soulmate.

The only way to save myself is to destroy the thing I love the most…




Ashton Blackthorne.

Ruthless. Unstoppable. Sexy.

My gorgeous secretary calls me a bad boy in a good suit. I’ve built up quite a reputation over the years women have dubbed me “So so bad” and men have called me the biggest, baddest shark on Wall Street. They say I’ve been everywhere, done everything…
And it’s all true.

I get what I want when I want it.

Now I’m sharing the most intimate details of my sordid life in my books based on actual events.

Broken, a dark alpha male romance is my first novel and Shattered, the sequel is a bad boy romance both based on my life.

I love hot action and even hotter women. And I will share with you ALL of my naughty, sordid exploits in my books.
