Beth Mason seemingly has it all. A successful bakery/café called Decadent Dreams, good friends, and a nice home in Stamford, New York.
After her previous boyfriend dumped her six months before for not spending enough time with him, Beth decided that she had been through enough and wanted more in a relationship. Throwing herself back into the dating scene, Beth decided to go onto an online dating website called, ‘A Foreign Affair.’
Enjoying the different types of men from all over the world that ‘A Foreign Affair’ catered to, Beth became struck by a handsome man from Belarus named Yuri who was the former manager of the famed Rhapsody night club. After realizing that they had a lot in common, the two struck up a close, intense relationship.
Yuri, who’s been depressed since his nightclub burned to the ground and watching his best friend’s parents both die from a terminal illness, decided to take Beth up on an invite and join her for a fun-filled weekend in New York City.
With both of them full of emotions, will the weekend be just what they needed or more than they bargained for?

Beth Mason is a successful chef who owns her own bakery called Decadent Dreams. Her business takes up so much of her time that she decides to join A Foreign Affair, an international online dating service. She soon meets Yuri a former manager of a popular night club. Unfortunately the club burns down leaving him unemployed. Beth finally gets the courage to invite Yuri to New York City for a weekend visit. They had become close friends through emails and web chats and Beth felt confident that their connection would grow stronger once they met in person. 

I liked both Beth and Yuri. Beth was a really strong, heroine who knew what she wanted and went for it. Yuri was a little conflicted about letting Beth pay for his trip to New York but once he got there his worries disappeared. I thought the relationship seemed a little unbelievable but I tried to go with it. This novella was packed with a lot of sex scenes. As Yuri and Beth only had the weekend to connect, they took full advantage of their limited time together and did it every waking moment. They mostly stayed in the hotel room and only ventured outside once to go dancing but that only lasted a few minutes before they locked themselves in a bathroom and went at it again.  I can’t believe I’m saying this but I thought there were just too many sex scenes and not enough romance. Decadent Dreams was a pretty steamy read and the characters were likable.
