Kate Sullivan just landed a career-making job creating a huge wedding cake for a high-profile client. So what that the bride is a bit difficult to work with; Kate can handle that. What she's not sure she can deal with is the fact that groom is her ex-best friend, Eric Wagner, a man she fell in love with shortly before he disappeared from her life. Can Kate really pull off this larger than life cake? And will she really have to witness Eric marry another woman? Baking Love by Lauren Boyd is a fast read that is equally well-suited for enjoying while sunbathing on the beach or while snuggled up in front of a fire. Kate's inner monologue gives great insight into her character. I particularly enjoyed the banter between Kate and Eric, especially what was left unsaid between them. Overall, a sweetly satisfying read.
When Eric Wagner walks back in to Kate Sullivan's life after cutting off contact years before, she soon realizes she has never stopped loving him. Unfortunately, he is engaged to another woman. Baking Love is a cute, fun read! You won't be disappointed with Kate and Eric's story. I look forward to ready more of Lauren's work.
I had the pleasure of reading Lauren Boyd’s debut contemporary romance Baking Love and I have to say, I was quite impressed. The book did not read like a debut author’s work. It was extremely well written, had excellent pacing, and an engaging story line. Lauren did an excellent job of developing her characters. They had depth and I connected with them, especially Kate. I could feel her conflict as she dealt with her feelings for Eric. She was a strong character and kind of snarky, which I loved. Her internal dialogue was sometimes funny and I’d laugh out loud at her thoughts a few times. In addition to developing strong, relatable characters, Lauren found plenty of situations to stick them in, creating enough conflict to keep the pacing of the book at a good rate. There were no slow spots where I found my attention wandering. My focus stayed firmly on the story. There was a scene I especially liked. It put Kate in a very uncomfortable position, which is the best position to put characters because it keeps readers entertained, and it kept me reading and giggling. I don’t want to spoil anything so I’ll just say pretend brides can be funny…and a little bittersweet, too. I will admit I was a little worried going into the story. Kate, the main character, is hired to bake a wedding cake for the man she’s in love with and the woman he’s marrying. I didn’t know how I’d feel if in the end of the book the man, Eric, were to leave his fiancée for Kate. But I was pleasantly surprised by the ending of the book. I thought it was perfect. Everything wrapped up exactly how it should and left me with a smile on my face and a sense of contentment. Bottom line: Lauren Boyd baked herself a good one with Baking Love. She is definitely an author I’ll be watching. I won’t hesitate to read another book of hers and I highly recommend Baking Love to anyone who loves sweet contemporary romance. My rating: 5 Stars (with frosting on top)
