Blurb: Cooper Reed has a fairly relaxed life for someone who lives in LA. He’s no celebrity—just the guy who makes sundaes at the Dreamy Creamery, and that’s the way he likes it. The highlight of every week is the beautiful guy who turns up and orders a sundae with rainbow sprinkles. Cooper still isn’t sure if that’s a code, because he has a huge crush and the hot guy is terrible at flirting.
Drew Tanner, it turns out, is an original California dreamer. He’s as wholesome as apple pie and twice as sweet, a real-life Disney Prince at Disneyland. But while Drew’s head is in the clouds, Cooper’s feet are firmly on the ground, and their different outlooks might be more than their new relationship can take.
Cooper Reed works at Dreamy Creamery, making sundaes and living a fairly relaxed life. Drew Tanner is one of his consumers who always orders a weird – if not disgusting *lol* – combination of ice cream. Drew is also a hopeful actor who works at the Happiest Place on Earth. They flirt, they exchange phone numbers, they date…
I wanted to read something light and easy in between my heavier novel, and Rainbow Sprinkles fit the bill completely. I mean, you get a combination of Disneyland and ice cream with rainbow sprinkles (of course). Totally results in fluffy sweet moments *smile*. Sexy-scene seekers should not be worried, though, Anna Martin still offered those steamy moments in between.
I did think that the argument that Cooper and Drew had later in this novella seemed to be coming out of nowhere. It felt like Anna Martin wanted to have something of a climax because the previous scenes had been so sweet. I wasn’t happy with Drew during this time though. I thought he needed a bit more groveling.
The epilogue also felt rushed. But other than that, it was a nice read.
Overall Impression: It was good
