Ash & Ellie

The book begins with Daphne from Grimalkin Academy Catacombs series, escorting Eloise (Ellie) Denning to her dormitory room. Ellie’s roommate is Ash Parkes. Ash is the youngest brother of the sisters from the Broomstick Bakery.

Ash and Ellie become best friends. They have a fun and warmhearted relationship. They are very compatible. They are both afraid to explore a more passionate relationship. They do not want to ruin their friendship.

Ellie wants to be an intern with a fashion company named Demarque. She interviews and awaits their answer. She is very nervous and afraid that she will not get the internship. Ash wants to cheer Ellie up and give her hope. Together they bake magical croissants that are infused with hope. Will Ellie get the internship? Will Ash and Ellie take a chance on love?

This was a quick and sweet read. Ash and Ellie are adorable. They are made for each other. They are cute when they worry how the other will react if they become romantically involved. This is the third book in the Broomstick Bakery series. This series has been fun and charming. I look forward to reading the next book in the series.

Ellie and Ash

It is very difficult to do a crossover with the identical levels of emphasis on both main characters.

For this book, the title implies the focus is on Ash's journey romantically speaking. It's the Pastry Warlock (Ash) - so that's what the reader sees (or thinks) is going to be the primary focus of the book.

As this is listed as a part of the Broomstick Bakery series, I went into it from the title that it would have a Ash and his love journey as a primary focus.

However, the story begins with the heroine and her introduction to Grimalkin Academy. While this is necessary, it leaves the reader with a different starting impression than what the reader of the series might come to expect.

Putting that aside, I found this to be an extremely delightful read. I like the friends to lovers theme when done well. This one was, just not as well as it could have been.

I still highly recommend this excerpt in the series as Ash is clearly a part of the family. I just wish that there was more of a focus on Ash's emotional journey than there was on Ellie's.
