It’s the middle of the week, which means it’s time for Can’t-Wait Wednesday. Every week I spotlight seemingly amazing future releases that—well, that I just can’t wait for. This is a feature hosted by Tressa over at Wishful Endings, so be sure to check out her weekly post to find other participants. Fair warning: don’t be surprised if you come away with an expanded TBR pile.
Today I’m waiting for…
My excitement for A Sweet Mess stems from two things: food and romance. What’s a better literary combination? And though I never tire of books that pair them, I have extra affinity for those that offer up a unique twist.
A small town baker. An unenthusiastic food critic. The cake that brings them together, and the food show that keeps them that way.
I can’t wait.
From the publisher:
Aubrey Choi loves living in her small town nestled in the foothills of California, running her highly successful bakery away from the watch of her strict Korean parents. When a cake mix-up and a harsh review threaten all of her hard work and her livelihood, she never thought the jaded food critic would turn out to be her one-night stand. And she sure as hell never thought she’d see the gorgeous Korean hunk again. But when Landon Kim waltzes into her bakery trying to clean up the mess he had a huge hand in making, Aubrey is torn between throwing and hearing him out.
When she hears his plan to help save her business, Aubrey knows that spending three weeks in California wine country working with Landon is a sure recipe for disaster. Her head is telling her to take the chance to save her bakery while her heart—and her hormones—are at war on whether to give him a second chance. And it just so happens that Landon’s meddling friends want them to spend those three weeks as close as possible…by sharing a villa.
When things start heating up, both in and out of the kitchen, Aubrey will have to make a choice—to stick it out or risk her heart.
