A hot, funny brother’s best friend rom com . . . with sugar on top!
She's his best friend's little sister. He's known her all his life. He's practically part of the family. There is nothing either of them could do to surprise the other at this point. Then she showed up in his bedroom in lingerie and asked him to take her V-card.
Okay, that was a surprise.
Aiden is pretty sure Zoe was equally surprised when he told her no.
To say that he didn't handle it well would be a massive understatement. Almost as massive as the amount of work he's going to have to do now to convince her that he wants her. Forever.
Right after he tells her that he's bought the company that's her bakery’s biggest competitor.
Maybe if he tells her he’s in love with her first, that will help sugarcoat the whole we're-rivals-in-business-now thing.
So, first "I'm in love with you", then "take off your clothes", then "I'm now your business adversary".
Sure. Piece of cake.

Review: Hot Cakes 1: Sugarcoated
Sugarcoated by Erin Nicholas is the first book in a brand new series entitled Hot Cakes and is a great introduction to the small town world of Appleby, the Hot Cakes factory and the Buttered Up bakery. Told in dual POV between Aidan and Zoe, the story is filled with best friends skirting the line towards lovers, secrets, rivalry and more. There was passion, some interesting scenes with cream filling and some really sweet (pun intended) moments between Aidan and Zoe. Enjoy!
Aiden is the whole package!
This is book one in the Hot Cakes series and it features Zoe and Aiden. He’s been her brother’s best friend since childhood but she didn’t realize she had a crush on him until five months ago. It was seduction gone wrong and she thought he didn’t want her. He did but he wanted more than one night. Also, how does he tell her that he and his partners bought the company that she thinks is her competitor but really isn’t? She’s carrying on the family tradition of the feud between her family bakery and the owners of the packaged snack cake factory in town. Zoe is EXTREMELY stubborn and close-minded to change...ANY change. Aidan is drool worthy, dressed in a well fitting suit and tie. He’s the whole package.
The story line is great but I wish Zoe wasn’t quite as stubborn as she was. I didn’t hate her but she wasn’t my favorite character either. There was some fantastic character growth happening with the McCaffrey women towards the end. It really surprised me! I’ll never look at cupcake cream filling the same again. Looking forward to the next book.
Review by Christine Jalili
This was such a sweet and fun romance. Loved the chemistry between Cam and Zoe, loved how well they knew each other. It’s been 5 months since she offered up her virginity, is he now too late? But he’s got a secret to tell, will she understand? Really loved his grand gesture at the end. I highly recommend this book.
