Meet the Naked Baker
Lizzie and Blue are meant for each other and they know it… but Blue cannot figure out why Lizzie keeps turning him down when he asks her out. The truth is Lizzie has a secret and she is afraid that if Blue finds out what is keeping her from accepting his requests for a date, he will turn tail and run as fast as he can the other way.
The Naked Baker is a webcast that Lizzie started to help pay for her sister’s college education. She appears to naked (even though she is modest about how much she shows) while she is baking. It is this webcast that she is afraid that Blue will find out about. Her motives are altruistic but as the owner of the local florist shop, she is concerned about her reputation should it get out what she is doing.
Blue persists and when they are together, he knows its right! But when her secret is finally revealed, what will happen? I was not too sure how it would all play out but it was handled well.
Addison has written another great story line… and I enjoyed reading it as well as listening to the audio version. The narrator is easy to listen to and does a good job of sharing the story. I would recommend it in either version.
Love Lizzie and Blue!
I always enjoy Addison Cole’s books. This time we get to meet and spend time with Lizzie Barber and Blue Ryder. These two are amazing people all on their own and they are always going above and beyond for their families and others especially Lizzie. They have an amazing friendship and Blue wants to take that friendship into a relationship however he’s been hurt in the past and Lizzie has a secret that she’s afraid to share with Blue much less her family and best friend Sky. However they decide to take a chance and as they become closer Lizzie decides to share her secret with Blue. Blue feels as though she is like his ex and they have to work to keep what they’ve worked so hard for. I appreciated that Blue was willing to sit down and talk to Lizzie about the situation and that he even went as far as trying to mend fences between Lizzie and her father. I was rooting for these two the entire time. I listened to this audio book narrated by Melissa Moran. I feel like she always does such a great job narrating Addison Cole’s books and is very consistent with voicing all the different characters we meet when we listen.
So Much Love!
Addison Cole wrote a clean and captivating story with this book. I love it when an author allows the listener’s imagination to take over for the scene behind closed doors. The premise of the Naked Baker was great. I love how selfless Lizzie was to provide her sister with the education she wanted. The relationship of Blue and Lizzie was friends to lovers, which is a favorite genre of mine. O loved Blue’s pursuit of Lizzie. Lizzie had much to deal with in this book, her parental approval/disapproval was huge motivation for her to succeed. Melissa Moran performed this book beautifully with her eloquent narration and appropriate emotions. Love is the recurring theme in this book, and one feels good listening. The added humor in the story was great. I loved her friends too!
