A Sweet Mess

Summary: Korean-American author Jayci Lee delights with this delicious and light-hearted romantic comedy that readers will devour and ask for more.

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.


Traveling With T’s Thoughts:

This was a total impulse download (thanks Edelweiss!)

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again- I have a love/hate thing with romance. I mean, sometimes I just crave a good romance story, but then when the main characters get into all the manufactured conflict- I am just DYING over some of it.

This was part of A Sweet Mess’s problem- If Aubrey and Landon had maybe talked every once in a while about some things- but anyway.


What I liked:

The cover is so RIDICULOUSLY cute. And that tagline- Bake a Chance on Love- *insert allllllllll the heart faces*

Landon. I could see him in my mind perfectly- and he was Henry Golding.

Aubrey’s determination. She was someone to root for!


Bottom line: This was my first Jacyi Lee book-I would def be willing to check out more of Jayci’s work- or to see if she would revisit Aubrey and Landon one day (when in the mood for a lighter read.)
