Every bite is a mouthful of heaven.

And the women of the Cupcake Club are bringing their appetites ...

Riley Brown never imagined she would find her bliss on Georgia's quiet Sugarberry Island after years of Chicago's city life. With a new career and fantastic new friends, she's got it all-except for eligible men. But a gig staging a renovated beach house delivers a delicious treat-six feet of blue-eyed, gorgeous writer as delectable and Southern as pecan pie. Quinn Brannigan has come to Sugarberry to finish his latest novel in peace, and suddenly Riley has a taste for the bad boy author that no amount of mocha latte buttercream or lemon mousse will satisfy ...

Riley's friends are rooting for her to give in to her cravings and spice up her life, but it's Quinn who needs to learn that life's menu just might include love, in all its decadent, irresistible flavors...  (Goodreads)

Just to be clear, I did not read Cupcake Club #1, so I may have missed some of the relationship building that occurred in book one. I struggled at first to get into the book. I just couldn't understand why Riley decided to get onto the treadmill in the home she was staging, knowing that her big client and potential home viewers were arriving soon. The point was even harder for me to grasp as she described her inability to keep up to the treadmill speed and her huffing and puffing. To add insult to injury (literally, treadmills are dangerous and should not be used inappropriately), Riley flies off the back of the machine, into a cactus plant only to be rescued by rich, gorgeous, successful author, Quinn.

Quinn, in my humble opinion, started off nice. Just, a nice southern gentleman. He was polite, and even sweet, but the bad boy promised in the book summary had to be there, right? I waited for him to surface. Quinn, proved to be to be worth the wait. While he struggled with his past, his writing issues and his new found feelings for Riley, I felt Quinn genuinely grow.

This book turned out to be quite amusing with the cupcake gang and the silly mishaps that seem to follow Riley. It was a sweet end to have the cute Chicago klutz find herself and love! I suggest picking up book one and two and hitting the beach this summer...Enjoy!
