Vanilla Clouds by Roe Horvat

Sex and chocolate are the two pleasures Michał enjoys most in life.

His sex life has been nonexistent for some time, though. After a particularly bad hookup, he keeps mostly to himself. That leaves chocolate. Luckily, he works surrounded by the most delicious, extravagant produce in Gothenburg. Beside his job at the chocolaterie, his main source of excitement is his online friend, Magnus, whom he stubbornly refuses to meet in person.

A customer turns up at the chocolaterie one day—tall, shy, and charming. He could be just the right man. If Michał can step out of his overly safe shell, there might be not only chocolate, but sex, too. Maybe chocolate-flavored sex. And if he’s lucky, maybe even love.

This book contains explicit scenes, adult language, and obscene amounts of chocolate.

*I received the book in exchange for an honest review.*

The warnings say that the book contains obscene amounts of chocolate. I want to warn you, when you read the book, be sure to have some chocolate near you, or at least chocolaterie to go to because…WOW DID I WANT CHOCOLATE.

Okay, with this out of the way, this is another amazing work by Roe Horvat. It is a sweet and short story but the length didn’t really matter. I would have read it in one sitting even if it were longer.

I loved the relationship Michał and Magnus forged online, especially since it had started as a kind of hook up attempt. I loved how it showed that even the relationships forged online are important and can be just as real as the ones made offline.

I was a bit skeptical at Magnus’ decision to meet Michał when the latter kept saying that he did not want to meet Magnus, but the author managed to make it good even though it could have turned up really badly. It also helped that Magnus had good intentions.

I also loved the friendship Michał had in real life, especially how protective his best friend was. That’s what best friends are for. Support and to protect the friend if needed!

The setting was great, as usual with Roe’s works. It is a breather from all the US and UK  based stories (which are also great but…there’s just so many of them).

And seriously, ALL THE CHOCOLATE!! 🙂
