Jordan Shoenover is happy to help friends in need and welcomes taking refuge at their historic inn while awaiting the impending doom of a frivolous lawsuit. On top of facing the loss of everything she's built, she's forced to work with Josh Lukasik—the man who abandoned her years ago after one fantastic night of mind-blowing bliss.
Josh Lukasik is one sexy cupcake whom women vie to take home when his catering shifts are over. Mixing it up is his only distraction from the responsibility of caring for his young brother, his lost dream of being a chef, and the memories of Jordan Shoenover—the One Who Got Away.
When Jordan drops back into Josh's life, he's not about to let things get stirred up between them again. He has secrets to keep, and she'll flambé him if she ever learns the truth. As far as Jordan is concerned, so what if their chemistry's still off-the-charts hot! She's not about to let Josh back into her bed—or anywhere near her heart.
Cupcake of the Month is a Just Add Peaches novel. Each book in the series is a stand-alone, passionate and playful contemporary romance, but you'll want more than one juicy bite.

I received this ARC for an honest review. Abigail Sharpe is a new to me author. This story is about Jordan and Josh. Jordan owns consulting agency named Shoenover Strategic Management. In which, she goes and visits with the employees of a company and see what they are doing right or wrong. On company she did a job for decided to fire some of the employees, and those who were fired are suing Jordan for breech of contract because she said that whatever they told her will be confidential. Jordan decided to stay with her cousin in Georgia. at their inn named Inn at Fountenoy Hall. Josh has aspirations to be a chef. Josh was not able to go to culinary school because he had to take care of his little brother. Josh and Jordan met initially in college eight years ago. They ended up having a one night stand because Josh left her in the morning and never contacted Jordan after. They ran into each other at a fundraiser where Jordan was attending and Josh was working for the caterer. Josh then received a job at the Inn in where Jordan is staying to help cook breakfast and prep dinner. Much more happens, but I am not going to share more. I like the idea behind this story, but I feel it needs to be refined more. Some parts read really well and others not so much. It is a cute idea, but it needs a good editing.
After reading the first book in this series, I was really looking forward to reading this book. This book was okay, not great. Jordan and Josh were friends in college and eventually became more on one hot night. The problem is Josh skipped out and totally ghosted Jordan. Now it is eight years later and Jordan is is hiding out from her problems at Fontlenoy Inn, run by her two best friends. She sees Josh serving at a catered event, one where wealthy women (the baker)find their “cupcake” (aka young hot server) for a night of fun. This was the first aspect of the book that I wasn’t thrilled with. The next issue I had was that both Jordan and Josh were keeping secrets and feeling shame about something that the were not responsible for. While I liked both characters, their relationship seemed forced. They barely interacted, but felt this undying love. This book had so much potential, but just fell short for me. I received an ARC of this book from NetGalley for my honest review.
