Sweet Evil Read Along: Week 2

Topic: Citrus or Pear recipe!

I'm drooling over this recipe I found!
See here: Pear-Hazelnut Cheesecakes w/ Pear-Raspberry Sauce

Recipe by memory:
Better than sex cake (that's the name)
Make a cake with yellow cake mix
Use a toothpick to poke holes in the top
Spread sweetened condensed milk over the top
Let it cool
Spread canned crushed pineapple (drained) over the top
Evenly place sliced bananas over the pineapple
(This is where you can add a citrus fruit or pear but I don't)
Cover with Cool Whip

Mini Review!

These chapters are what really set the tone of the book for me. This is when we get to learn more about Kaidan during the road trip and when we first meet Anna’s dad.

Fave Quote!

I Sigh for Kai "How's your orange juice, Ann? Does it have a touch of lime?"

The glass paused at my lips as I processed his innuendo, and I took a second to make sure my embarrassment stayed hidden inside. I let the drink swish over my tongue a moment before swallowing and answering.

"Actually it's a little sour," I said, and he laughed.

"That's a shame." He picked up a green pear from his plate and bit into it, licking juice that dripped down his thumb. My cheeks warmed as I set down my glass.

"Okay, now you're just being crude," I said.

He grinned with lazy satisfaction.

"I have no idea what you're talking about. I'm just enjoying my breakfast." He took another bite and I shook my head.

The road trip was my favorite part of the book! I decided to do the read along with you guys, but couldn't put the book down! It's so good that I read it in two sittings! Do you know when Sweet Peril comes out! I love your posts Mindy!

Richa said...

These were my favourite chapters in the book. Omg Kai <3 He was so sweet in a lot of the scenes! And great job on finding that amazing recipe, I really really want to eat it now ;)

Unknown said...

Anything that is named "Better Than Sex" HAS to be worth a try! :)

Fiktshun said...

LOL I think we all used the same quote. I love that freaking quote! And that recipe sounds totally awesome. Like seriously sweet. Of course now I may have to figure out how to make yellow cake so I can try it!

Unknown said...

Ooohhh sounds like a yummy cake! The citrus quote is popular. My favorite part is when Kai licks the pear juice and Anna calls him crude. lol I'm more of a citrus drink fan than citrus food.

Love that quote . . . wish I had time to reread this book right now! And cake sounds soooo yummy--will have to make it, maybe for mine and hub's anniversary:-)

Unknown said...

That cake...sounds amazing! Can't wait to try it!

Timing is everything - I just started Sweet Evil yesterday and noticed the read along going down so I'll have to keep an eye on the posts (though I haven't gotten to the pear part yet... sounds juicy. LOL

I'm already on page 122 - sucked in from page 1!

Mary Preston said...

Loved the quotes & I must make the cake - what a name!!

Anonymous said...

What a name for a cake :D haha I haven't tried to bake unless you'll consider the ready mixed types:) Though I'll consider doing this recipe of yours. Looks like something I can handle :)

Amy said...

That cake sounds awesome!! I will have to make it sometime. I am still keeping up with the read-along so far. Yay!! I have my recipes all picked out, I just have a few more chapters to read.

starryeyedjen said...

Eeek! I loved these chapters! I'd always seen that quote and now knowing the context it was set in...swoon! :P I loved the road trip!! Great recipe, too...I've actually had a cake called that before, but it was completely different, so I'm curious to try your version. :)

Lis said...

Love that quote as weel. And the recipe sounds so yummy!!

Christina @ Biblio Thoughts said...

That Better than Sex cake recipe seems real appropriate for this weeks reading. Although, I don't think Kaidan would think it's better than sex, LOL!

Gaby Pendragon said...

That cake has to be delicious!
That quote on the juice! hahaha one of my favorites too!

smiling_ina said...

Oh, I like the sounds of your cake - especially the name :D and how easy it is to make. *yummy* I'd love some right now! LOL

Unknown said...

I love the quotes. Drool.
Kaidan is such a tease!! Sigh.
Now if only real life resembled the book - only in this one instance!!
