When baker extraordinaire Leilani Trusdale leaves New York City for Georgia's sleepy Sugarberry Island, her past follows in the form of her former boss, Baxter Dunne. Baxter, otherwise known as Chef Hot Cakes, wants to film his hit cooking show in her tiny cupcakery. Last time they worked together, Baxter's molten chocolate brown eyes and sexy British accent made Lani's mouth water and her cheeks blush the colour of raspberry filling...Lani's friends are convinced that this time around, Baxter is the missing ingredient in her recipe for happiness. But convincing Lani will be a job for Baxter himself. And he'll need more than black velvet frosting to sweeten the deal... (Goodreads)


For me this was just an “alright” story. Baxter and Lani is a great, well matched couple. I liked Lani’s back story and her current life, and Baxter is just a sweetheart. The other characters really make the book entertaining. I did find it refreshing that the main female did not have self-esteem issues.

I didn’t like that different characters kept calling Lani by different nicknames; it was a little confusing in the beginning. For me I just didn’t connect with the story as well as I like to, I had no problem sitting this book down to do different things, and usually I cling to a book until I am finished. The story was cute, but it didn’t grab me. I found myself skipping through some of the babble, it seems like the same arguments and internal struggles were repeated over and over.

Cute Story, but I don’t think I will read more of the series.
