    2. Since the world of 50 shades hit the books I have come across the "vanilla" phrase more and more. But it still amazes me that each time it has a different meaning. In Anything but Vanilla the author showed that life is about colour, flavour, everything sweet and spiced so not plain old vanilla.The book tells the story of Sorrel, she has a business to run and nothing is going to stop her even if she has to buy the store that supplies her the deliciously sinful tasting ices. But she does not count [...]

    3. Full review at Smart Bitches, Trashy BooksAnything but Vanilla is a Harlequin Kiss romance about Alex and Sorrel, who bicker over running an ice cream shop. The ice cream added a nice comfort read quality to the book, but tragically all the parts of the book that did not involve ice cream were sexist, nonsensical, or both.The romance unfolds over a short period of time as they work together to save the store. Initially Alex can’t take Sorrel seriously because the first time they meet she is we [...]

    4. 'Anything but Vanilla' totally suits the newish Harlequin Kiss line, sassy and romantic, and will leave you with a huge craving for ice-cream! The hero is scrumptious Alexander West, who turns up out of the blue to close the ice-cream parlour Sorrel Amery uses for her perfect, fun, catering events. We're not talking any old ice-cream parlour, it's all about ice-cream that 'sparkles on the tongue' with new and unusual flavours. Champagne sorbet, anyone? Chilli-chocolate? Their relationship kicks [...]

She wants to make her first million by the time she’s twenty-five and become one of the country’s most successful businesswomen. Sorrel is determined that she will not let anything or anyone stand in her way. She will not make the same mistakes that her mother had made and let a man turn her [...]

    6. Yes, after FIFTY SHADES OF GREY, the word vanilla has taken on a whole new meaning, like 'boring' and 'predictable'. I know that Liz Fielding is a mistress of the craft of romance writing and yes, I know she can do hot, but I was wondering what was in store when I read this title. Well, I needn't have worried, Liz is a writer who knows how to make a relationship sizzle on the page, but she's still writes the kind of books you can give your teenage daughter (or your mother in law for that matter) [...]

    7. Liz Fieldings book is a very easy read a good story, interesting, made me want to run out and buy ice cream. Sorrel (intersting name) loses her partner in crime in the ice cream business just before a big event. Alexander shows up at the store where her partner puts the ice cream after it has been madde, adn the two meeet, and the sparks are there. They both try to ignore them, but eventually you know it is going to happen. I would imagine Liz has two more books about the other two sisters, I ha [...]

    8. I won this book from Ms. Fielding and although this is the second book I reviewed for her, her stories keep getting better and better! Sorrel Amery knew that most men were no good after all thanks with the females in her family had a bad track record with men taking advantage of them. taking what they wanted and leaving them penniless. She and her two sisters had different dads and they never knew their names as their mom would never say and their fathers never stuck around long enough to see th [...]

    9. A twenty-three year old virgin falls for a Global-trotter, hunky and super yummy guy. Exciting? Yes!I actually love this book and consider it as one of those easy reads, where it doesn't contain those heavy scenes that you sometimes hate and love at the same time. Sorrel, our heroine who wants to be a millionaire before shes reaches twenty five wants her ice-cream business to be known like the ones she sees on t.v nothing and no one will stop her from achieving it, while our hero, Alexander who [...]

    10. Anything but Vanilla?Yes, especially Cucumber!Sorrel and Alex fall in the love at first sight couple who understood it well that their hearts were involved from the first. Coming to terms that their lives might be altered is a bit difficult and both of them are not there yet but who has seen the future?Carpe Diem ;)That is how they reach their happily ever after.A happily ever after that would not have been possible if it was not for ice cream. Not like sharing a cone or scoop of one. Rather mak [...]

    11. So I'm really enjoying the new Modern Tempted range of books from Mills and Boon right now. They're starting to become my favourites over the normal Modern Romance ones and this book is no exception. The romance between Sorrel and Alexander in this story was very hot and full of sexual tension and yet it never felt unrealistic or rushed. The chemistry was all there and the inclusion of both characters' families in a larger role was a nice touch. I've got to stop reading books with food playing a [...]

    12. This wonderful book by Liz Fielding made me want to dress like a neapolitan ice-cream and embrace the possibility of summer!Sorrel and Alexander should fit like ice-cream and chicken soup. But like Sorrel's crazy menu Liz Fielding makes it all possible, throws in a lot of fun and adds a ripple of sweetness as Sorrel finds her life plans upended by sexy adventurer Alexander.This is the first book I've read in this series and I love the whole premise of Rosie the ice-cream van and the Amery sister [...]

    13. A great story with wholesome characters and a believable story, but a little slow in the middle. I still enjoyed it and love the cover of it! I think the new kiss series book jackets are wonderful. Bright and colorful :)

    16. I really wanted to adore this book, however too much dialogue and inexistent plot turned a great idea into a dull novel :(

    18. The second book in Fielding’s Ice Cream series was enjoyable but didn’t quite live up to the first book in the series. This book also revolves around the Herb sisters who have transformed their single ice cream truck into a thriving events catering business and tells the story of the middle sister, Sorrel. For reasons I don’t understand this book was written for a different harlequin imprint, the KISS line, which may explain the difference between the two stories. They both had strong smar [...]

    19. I'm not really sure how I feel about this book. I mean, I liked it, I liked that it avoided a lot of my rage buttons, but I'm not sure I like HOW it avoided them.To wit: the majority of the book takes place over a three day (I think) span. In this time, the hero and heroine fall hard for each other, but no declarations other than an oblique one are made. Yay! They commence an almost accidental long-distance romance, and after the hero completes his quest he comes home to declare himself. I like [...]

    20. In Anything but Vanilla by Liz Fielding, Sorrell has a life/business plan - to make her and her sisters' business a huge success, to be a millionaire by the time she's 25, and to settle down with a stable man even if he isn't very exciting or doesn't light her torch! Her plans have to adjust dramatically when the woman (Ria) who helps her flavor her ice creams and supplies her with them, suddenly disappears the day before an important event for Sorrell - one that could make or break Scoop! In Ri [...]

    21. After reading Tempted by Trouble I already knew of the Amery sisters, so I was delighted to find that this book was about the middle sister Sorrel. This sister is just as stubborn as the one before her, and she has her sights set on success. But when Ria, the lady Sorrel relies on for her ice cream parlour business lets her down, chaos ensues, in the form of hunky Alexander West, and the inevitable romance ensues. I reviewed the paperback format of this book and I think that they are perfect sho [...]

    22. Now this story was good. What happens to the person left behind when someone messes up on their business dealings and gets shut down? We get to watch Sorrell try to figure out how to keep her business from crumbling when her supplier comes up AWOL. Problem solving at its best. And along the way she comes to realize that she can love someone and still have some fun in life! Quick read with an interesting story.

    23. This is the first book I read by Liz Fielding and it is an enjoyable book and I adore this book,but it contained so many dialogues,which certainly made it difficult for me to comprehend(this might only be a problem with me) and it contained so many details about business(which I liked) but that made the story look dull and slow paced.Over all I enjoyed it.The book contained sweet and tender moments,strong heroine and a sexy,playful and witty hero.I loved both of them. :)

    24. I received this book as a "First Reads". I really enjoyed this book. It was an easy read that made it go by fast. I didn't want to put the book down. I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a fun read!!

    25. An enjoyable book, but I didn't feel that I really connected and believed the story between the hero and heroine.It seemed a little bogged down in details about the business really than about the two of them, so when they did get together it felt a little rushed.

    26. The two characters sparked as soon as they met. Lots of sizzling, sexy fun in this book. Really enjoyed it. But then I do love Liz's style of writing.

    27. It was very sweet, but again, the lack of foreplay/sex was disappointing. Also, very cheesy. I didn't like how they got together, it was unoriginal, disappointing, and "oh, that's it?".

    29. Cute story well written, although the pacing is a little off. Half the book is an extended first scene.
