To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I absolutely love romance books especially books like this this was definitely a great read how Katie and Madson got together it was just wonderful The carriage was also good in the book as well it was a couple of miss spell words but I still enjoy it
Cute story. Not world-shattering. Are there too many books about bakery shop owners (or waitresses?) falling for celebrities? - maybe. There was nothing really wrong with this story, it was middle-of-the-road. The characters were written well, but I just didn't get to the high-level of an exciting romance.
I followed along for the ride and enjoyed it. And then suddenly it ended. It seemed more like a happy for now ending vs HEA. An epilogue would have sealed the deal and made it a five-star book. As it was, it kind of left me hanging.
It's okay to leave out love scenes if you don't know how to do them. In fact, please leave out love scenes if you don't know how. The romance was cute. But the love scenes reminded me of those awkward no chemistry scenes in the first season of Bridgerton. A man who obviously has no clue about foreplay and a woman who takes care of herself.
I love Sydney’s romances! Read it in one sitting and it was just so satisfying and exactly what I needed. If you’re looking for something well written that hits all the right notes with good surprises this is it.
The h is the owner and chef of the local bakery. The H is a big time movie star and is filming in her town. He drops into her bakery one early morning to buy coffee and cinnamon rolls. The h doesn’t recognize him and he finds that refreshing. He tells her that he works on the movie set as a grip. He continues to drop in early to talk to her and take baking lessons from her. The cat is out of the bag when she surprises him with pastries on the movie set. They decide that the nature of his work and her wanting privacy can only result with the them being friends while he is filming in town. They wind up sleeping together but stay friends. One international trip and job together lead them beyond the friendship stage. The two get a HFN after months of spending time time together and admitting that they love each other.
The story moves at a good clip while the two are building a relationship. They didn’t jump right into bed. There is no drama or conflict. It’s like a Hallmark movie except for the sex scenes. The relationship set up is done very well. Unfortunately there isn’t much of an ending. The H swoops back into town weeks after the h told him to stop contacting her after they had hit the headlines. He tells the h that he loves her and that he bought a warehouse in town. She tells him that she loves him too. That was the end. No epilogue or a commitment.
I was really enjoying this book and considering buying the next installment. It was interesting and I liked the story and the setup... and then in the middle of the story it just ended within a couple paragraphs. Have a case of readers whiplash. Unfortunate that i'll be moving on from what appeared to be an interesting group of characters.
