When a grumpy baker and a brash marketing wiz collide, they'll either blend perfectly...or turn into a recipe for disaster.
After a chaotic childhood, all Erik Andersson wants is peace and stability. What a shock, then, to find himself quitting on the spot after a tornado of a woman storms his workplace and exposes the toxicity of his boss. Although Erik should be focused on locking down his next gig, he instead agrees to a wild business proposal from the beautiful chaos agent intent on upending his life.
Josie Ryan spent years chasing her mother’s approval and now fills that void by wowing clients with her buzzy PR events. So when the brooding baker with the gorgeous cakes ends up jobless, Josie leaps at the chance to prove her worth by turning his talent into an empire—assuming she can work alongside a reserved hunk who charms her with every grumble.
Keep it professional. That’s the first rule of a good partnership. Soon enough, though, Josie and Erik have dropped their defensive walls to explore the potential of their sweet-and-salty relationship. But as the business grows, their clashing definitions of success threaten their happy equilibrium. Can they resolve their differences to form the perfect fusion, or will the heat force one of them out of the kitchen?

I had a great time reading this storyline it had my attention from the beginning to the end. The characters are well developed and engaging and they had enough chemistry to hook me.
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
A fiery red head and a grumpy hottie.... yes please. I love this second installment in the Tempting series. Josie and Erik kept me entertained and turning pages. Erik is definitely being ranked highly on my list of book boyfriends.
Thank you, Sara for the arc!
A Great Meet Cute
The moment Josie met Erik on a train a spark was lit. The next time she saw the giant gorgeous man was at bakery tasting wedding cakes. Who doesn’t love giant gorgeous men with man buns that can bake delicious cake? This book was so cute. I love Josie so much and my heart breaks for her that she doesn’t know how great she is and Erik, well I want to know where I can find one of him. The two are such opposites but still perfect for each other in every way. So you are left with good writing, a good, cute story with a great couple, some amazing side characters that you will want more of, and a HEA. What more could you want? Unfortunately we can’t try the delicious cakes described but I guess you can’t have everything....
