A Sweet Mess by Jayci Lee is one of the sweetest books you will read this summer.
Is it time to bake a chance on love?
Aubrey Choi has been content running her highly successful bakery Comfort Zone, with dating the least of her priorities. Then a one-night-stand with gorgeous Korean hunk Landon Kim makes her want things she didn’t think she had time for. Too bad it turns out he’s a celebrity food critic whose scathing review of Comfort Zone goes viral and nearly destroys Aubrey’s business – and her fond memory of their night together.
Landon tries to clean up the mess he made by offering Aubrey a spot on the new celebrity cooking show he’s producing. To save her bakery and her reputation, she agrees – whilst vowing to protect her heart.
Will their pairing be a recipe for disaster? Or will the baker and critic finally admit that they have all the necessary ingredients for love?
We are a sucker for a romance novel, and we also love cooking. So A Sweet Mess pretty much was ticking all the boxes before we even started reading.
And it’s safe to say we were not disappointed.
While we hold our hands up and admit it’s not the most original plot for a book, it’s one that is extremely easy to like and fall in love with.
Jayci Lee has created a delightfully sweet novel full of humour, tiny bits of angst and very healthy doses of cake and romance.
Aubrey and Landon as characters are extremely likeable and reliable so you connect with them right away, being drawn into their story from the first paragraph.
It’s a story that is absolutely perfect for reading on the beach or even curled up on the sofa with a cup of tea, It’s romantic escapism at it’s very best.
