Goodreads synopsis: 
Korean-American author Jayci Lee delights with this delicious and light-hearted romantic comedy that readers will devour and ask for more.

Bake a chance on love.

Aubrey Choi loves living in her small town nestled in the foothills of California, running her highly successful bakery away from the watch of her strict Korean parents. When a cake mix-up and a harsh review threaten all of her hard work and her livelihood, she never thought the jaded food critic would turn out to be her one-night stand. And she sure as hell never thought she’d see her gorgeous Korean unicorn again. But when Landon Kim waltzes into her bakery trying to clean up the mess he had a huge hand in making, Aubrey is torn between throwing and hearing him out.

When she hears his plan to help save her business, Aubrey knows that spending three weeks in California wine country working with Landon is a sure recipe for disaster. Her head is telling her to take the chance to save her bakery while her heart—and her hormones—are at war on whether to give him a second chance. And it just so happens that Landon’s meddling friends want them to spend those three weeks as close as sharing a villa.

When things start heating up, both in and out of the kitchen, Aubrey will have to make a choice—to stick it out or risk her heart.


4.5 stars

When a mistaken order disrupts Aubrey Choi’s business, Landon Kim, the blog writer tries to make good by getting Aubrey a job on his friend’s tv cooking show to make up for his mistakenly written bad review.

Lots of drama in this light hearted contemporary romance. I liked getting to see Landon open up and embrace his big dream. He had already made a lot of money with his blog but he never seemed to want to move past where he was. Being with Aubrey shows him that he can have these dreams. I liked that part of the story a lot. Very inspiring

Loved the back and forth between Aubrey and Landon, plus the making up at the end was well worth the wait.

I received this as an ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) in return for an honest review. I thank NetGalley, the publisher and the author for allowing me to read this title.
