Baked goods and reading are two of my favorite things, and with A Sweet Mess Jayci Lee, those two loves collide. A Sweet Mess is an adorable love story between a self-made baker and a food critic whose harsh review nearly ended her career – a true recipe (pun intended) for chemistry and drama. This book was light and airy and was almost great – with the exception of its ending and lack of resolution.

Bake a chance on love.

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 her gorgeous Korean unicorn 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.

When I first heard about A Sweet Mess it checked a ton of boxes for me, namely, it’s about a star crossed romance between a food critic, and the owner of a restaurant that he panned in a review. I recently finished this book (review to come!) and I can’t wait for you guys to get to experience it.

“How’s this?” He’d chosen a small table at the back corner. When Aubrey nodded, he pulled out her chair and took a seat across from her.

Their proximity and relative privacy made the air between them hum with electricity. Their knees brushed every time either of them shifted in their seat, sending bolts of desire through him. A sharp intake of breath and a parting of her lips revealed Aubrey wasn’t immune to their magnetic attraction.
