spoilers ahead, 3.5*
Cute, drama free, sexy read. I liked
Alpha hero who was all in from the get go
Sweet and loveable h with some daddy issues, she cried a bit to much for me but 🙍
Gaston 😂 I sang the song every time I read his name
I'm really liking the covers for this series
This author knows how to deliver Alpha heroes
Both non virgins but no deets or skeevy references
OW drama from a woman who wanted the H but he definitely wasn't interested. I did think he should've been wiser in dealing with her but I guess it created the suspense for the plot 4 Stars!

Chrissie owns a successful bakery called the Sweet Spot that keeps her very busy. She hardly has time to date, and hasn’t made it a priority since her business takes up all her time and attention. Then she meets the insanely gorgeous and persistent club owner Gaston and everything changes. She goes from not being interested in a relationship, to giving him a chance as he relentlessly pursues her.
Gaston is used to usually getting what he wants, but then he crosses paths with Chrissie who at first doesn’t seem that interested in what he has to offer. He’s intrigued, and wants the chance to get to know her better. From the moment they met, there’s just something different about her, and he won’t give up. He loves her laugh, and how she smells like cupcakes. She’s absolutely stunning, and he wants her to be his. He is up for the challenge, and prepared to convince her he’s worth her time.
I don’t think I’ve ever had a man look at me with so much desire; it’s a heady feeling.
From the moment we met, Ive wanted more from you more time, more kisses, more of you falling asleep next to me, more of your laughter, and a lot more of your love. I can’t get enough of you.
Baiting Him (How to Catch an Alpha #2) by Aurora Rose Reynolds is a fun, flirty, sexy romance full of humor and chemistry. I really enjoyed this story, and love Aurora’s writing! I hope we get more books in this series!

Baiting Him is the second book in Aurora Rose Reynolds' How to Catch an Alpha series and follows Chrissie, Leah's friend from book one. Chrissie has seen her friends through bad dates and relationships, and even her own mom through a failed marriage. Which leaves her less than excited to start her own relationship and the reason she first blows off Gaston aka Gus when they meet. But Gus is a man that knows what he wants and decides to not let Chrissie run scared.
These two had such a cute relationship and I loved reading about it. Gus wasn't as posessive as ARR usually writes her heroes but he was still a complete Alpha that made Chrissie is whole focus. The connection between them was sweet and heated with moments of strong passion. It made the book really intriguing and easy to get stuck in.
The story was very low on angst which left even more moments to focus on Chrissie and Gus, and their relationship. We did have some emotional scenes thrown in with Chrissie's family and they actually helped bring her even closer to Gus and provided a ton of cute moments.
ARC kindly provided in exchange for an honest review. Talk about yummy! Not only did the food and scrumptious sweets that Chrissie created make my tummy rumble, but Gaston was the delicious hero every woman weak for an alpha dreams of. He was sexy, gorgeous, intelligent, articulate, kind and caring, successful, and everything Chrissie could ask for. They meet and, despite Chrissie's reluctance to take a chance on potential heartbreak, he was relentless in his pursuit of her (which I loved). The development of their relationship was a lot easier than I expected, not counting the sliver of drama towards the end. Gaston and Chrissie's love was smooth, effortless and inevitable. Their chemistry was on point, there was very little angst, and the sex scenes were exactly what I was hoping for. No fadetoblack here people!! It's been a long while since I've read anything from ARR, but if this is the type of story I've been missing, you better believe I'll be going back for more! I am really struggling on how to review this book. I feel like just the fact Aurora Rose Reynolds wrote it should be enough said. But I guess I mean Aurora is one of my top auto buy authors and I love her writing. I love going in knowing the type of hero I'm going to get. And knowing I am going to be happy with the outcome.
Chrissie was sweet and loving and I was a big fan of hers from the start. She knew who she was and what she wanted and I liked that when she first met Gaston she didn't fall all over herself to get his attention.
Gaston was everything I love about the author. He is sexy but not a manwhore, driven but doesn't put his work before his friends and family. But mostly he knows who he wants and goes all out to win her over and convince her she's it for him.
Together they were so cute and the chemistry was scorching hot. Their relationship developed quickly but it still felt natural and I was right there the whole time with them. There was really minimal drama and the whole book was just one big warm fuzzy.
A great read for a lazy afternoon Aurora has done it again. Easiest five stars I think I’ve given to one of her books besides Until December. If you know me well, then you know I can never get enough of how ARR writes such easy romance. I love that there is hardly any angst. LOVE IT!
Chrissie and Gaston falling in love was so simple and flowed so well. It was easy and had so many moments that made me smile and swoon. For me, it doesn’t really any get better than that. Throw in a dog named LeFou and I’m obsessed.
ARR writes amazing alpha males. While Gaston is a bit tame compared to the Masons, I still adored him. I will always love a man who knows what he wants, doesn’t play games, and is absolutely dreamy.
Like I keep saying, this was such an easy romance to read. If you like alpha males, low to no angst, and super sweet stories then I think you would like this one.
All in all, I am still loving this series and can’t wait for the next book Hooking Him later next year. Hopefully, it’s about a certain redhead that works at the bakery!

Ladies, I present you my first true pink fairy tale of the year. 💖
I’ve said before; only ARR can deliver a perfect alpha hero, but Gaston is out of this world perfect! You notice that he even has a fairy tale name, right? 😻
He’s a club and bar owner, who meets this dorky woman inside his club’s men toilette. He’s captivated because she’s also sassy, beautiful and funny in a cute kind of way, without even trying. He’s protective and dominant, not caveman style like the ones from the Until series. There’s simply no other way to describe him than perfect.
I got the most wonderful warm and cozy feeling while reading this story, drama free, hot and sexy, funny and charming, worthy of a 5⭐️ rating. I forgot to mention that our heroine owns a bakery called Sweet Spot 🥰 I mean, what more can you wish for?
So, if you want to feel as good as I did, make sure you preorder it now!
It’s going to be release in just a few days, January 14th.
Thank you, ARR for writing this one just for me. 😋

It would be an absolute honor to have you as my guest on my blog too. Stop by anytime you want :)
Baiting Him is the second installment in the How to Catch an Alpha Series and features Chrissie, Leah’s best friend from book one. This was a very enjoyable read. Super sweet, steamy, with fantastic writing as always and two amazing characters that had me hooked from the start. A heartwarming entertaining romance that focuses on what love is all about and leaves a warm fuzzy feeling!
“I feel the possessive brand of his mouth on mine and his hold, like he’s staking his claim, telling me without words I belong to him.”
“He makes me feel safe, he makes me feel at peace, and he makes me feel cherished and wanted.“
💝 ARC provided by the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. 💝 Baiting Him is super cute. We met Cassie in the first book of the series. She's a very sweet heroine with a bit of an emotional side to her. She's always there for everyone around her, and she protects the ones she loves even when she is hurting.
Gaston (love that name) is actually a toned down alpha from what I am used to seeing from this author. I mean, he's still alpha and protective but he wasn't as "caveman" as ARR's usual heroes. He came off more gentlemanly. He treated Cassie like a man should. He was also a sweet mama's boy.
There isn't very much conflict in the story which makes this a nice low angst read. There is some family drama but not much couple drama. I really like that in a book. There was a small bit of ow drama as well, but I really loved how Gaston handled it.
If you are looking for a fun, feel good story, this series is perfect. I hope there will be more to come.
