In Lauren Dane's Cake, we meet Gregori Ivanov, rock star of the Seattle art scene. With his tattoos, piercings and sensual sneer, Gregori is the ultimate bad boy. But Gregori loves women like he loves cake and champagne—intensely, but only for the moment.
I have a thing for the bad boy, especially one covered in piercings and tattoos. The sensual sneer Gregori always seems to wear is but a bonus.
1. He might be the bad boy, but once he sets his heart on something, Gregori is devoted and focused. He throws his whole heart into his work, like everything else he does in his life. If you are the object of his attention, he will give it to you one hundred percent.
“The building could fall down around him and he wouldn’t notice. There was something incredibly sexy about that. His intensity was sort of overwhelming, but in the best sort of way.”
2. He is sexy, sexy. His hair may change like the wind (currently scarlet red and mohawked) but his body is a work of art. Pierced and tattooed, Gregori is one beautiful piece of eye candy. Plus, he wears leather pants in one scene, nom!
“In short, he was a visual buffet. And she was really hungry.”
