Publisher Description

I'm Levi Buchanan, and until five years ago, I thought the legend of my family's curse was a load of crazy, Southern nonsense.

No curse can make you fall in love at first sight. No curse can force a true, deep, passionate, all-consuming love that will haunt you all the days of your life.

Then I met Jocelyn Abernathy and I realized how completely wrong I was.

The problem is, Jocelyn guards her feelings like well-armed soldier. She's the most beautiful, stubborn, infuriating woman I've ever met. Every time she talks, I want to kiss the living daylights out of her. But I can't.

Because when we met, she didn't need true love. She needed a best friend. And that's what I've been to her... for five years.

But when Jocelyn meets a handsome stranger her first day working at Donner Bakery and she lets him buy her a dill pickle cupcake, I realize with ominous regret that I may have missed my window with my best friend.

If I can't get her to see past our friendship, my new curse may be to watch the love of my life move on with someone else.

'Baking Me Crazy' is a full-length contemporary romantic comedy, can be read as a standalone, and is book#1 in the Donner Bakery series, Green Valley World, Penny Reid Book Universe.

Such a fun and charming read!

I was completely surprised, in all the best ways possible, with Baking Me Crazy by Karla Sorensen. I loved the characters, the story and the fun I had reading this story. Do you believe in curses? Levi Buchanan did not, until he met Jocelyn Abernathy, Joss. She was a game-changer.

Talk about a slow burning friends-to-lovers romance! Joss and Levi became fast friends when they met, even as Levi wanted more. But he would take what he could, for now. He just did not expect now to last as long as it did. In that time, they became the best of friends. But when Joss meets a man that brings out new feelings, Levi knows its times to change the game. I loved Levi. He was strong, caring and protective. When he gave his heart, he gave it whole-heartedly. Joss had insecurities she struggled with but was so strong and very determined.

Can they realize what they have before it’s too late? I absolutely loved reading Baking Me Crazy by Karla Sorensen. Though this is part of Penny Reid’s universe, it can be read as a standalone. Baking Me Crazy by Karla Sorensen was such a fun and light read with all the best feels.

4.5-stars! Loved it!
Happy reading?!

It wasn’t terrible. It was a cute story and I appreciated the heroine’s story with her disease. But, it was completely predictable from beginning to end with a little too much sex.

Review: Donner Bakery 1: Baking Me Crazy

Baking Me Crazy by Karla Sorensen is the book that kicks off the first in the Smartypants Romance series - a set of interconnected standalones set in the Penny Reid multiverse of awesome romance - and is the first book in the Donner Bakery series.

A wonderful tale of a family's love-curse, one-sided instant love, friends to lovers romance. The back and forth between Joss and Levi is immersive and the emotions are all kinds of swoony and the openness of their friendship, determination and strength of characters - just WOW! The realities of the situation surrounding Jocelyn, her limitations that don't stop her, Levi's acceptance of Joss' offer of friendship is humbling and the length of time he stays true to what Joss needs denying what he needs is awesome. Enjoy!
