Synopsis |

I'm Levi Buchanan, and until five years ago, I thought the legend of my family's curse was a load of crazy, Southern nonsense.

No curse can make you fall in love at first sight. No curse can force a true, deep, passionate, all-consuming love that will haunt you all the days of your life.

Then I met Jocelyn Abernathy and I realized how completely wrong I was.

The problem is, Jocelyn guards her feelings like well-armed soldier. She's the most beautiful, stubborn, infuriating woman I've ever met. Every time she talks, I want to kiss the living daylights out of her. But I can't.

Because when we met, she didn't need true love. She needed a best friend. And that's what I've been to her... for five years.

But when Jocelyn meets a handsome stranger her first day working at Donner Bakery and she lets him buy her a dill pickle cupcake, I realize with ominous regret that I may have missed my window with my best friend.

If I can't get her to see past our friendship, my new curse may be to watch the love of my life move on with someone else.

'Baking Me Crazy' is a full-length contemporary romantic comedy, can be read as a standalone, and is book#1 in the Donner Bakery series, Green Valley World, Penny Reid Book Universe.

Review

Baking Me Crazy is my first read that’s part of the Smartypants Romance, you know, just more romance in the universe that Penny Reid created and loved by so many. Baking Me Crazy is a read by a new-to-me author, which makes me more excited for the Smartypants Romance world, just more authors to read from.

I’ll be honest, unrequited love stories make me a little nervous because when it eventually comes to that point where they start to explore a relationship, I wonder if it’s one-sided or not. However, I loved watching their friendship grow into something more.

I was completely nervous for Levi the entire time, but it was such an insta-love for me and his character! It’s nearly impossible to not fall head over heels for the guy. Of course, he’s the ultimate best friend and goes above and beyond for Joss. But he also has the patience of a Saint.

Joss is one tough cookie and a bit unaware about a lot of things. And I found that downright adorable. Her feelings were very authentic when Levi dropped some truth about how he felt for her. I was so thankful that she took the time to really think everything over before jumping into something.

I wish there was more on their relationship, but hopefully we’ll see in the next installment of the Donner Bakery series.

major thank you to social butterfly pr for the complimentary copy in consideration for a review. this does not affect my opinion of the book or review.

About Karla Sorensen

Karla Sorensen has been an avid reader her entire life, preferring stories with a happily-ever-after over just about any other kind. And considering she has an entire line item in her budget for books, she realized it might just be cheaper to write her own stories. It doesn’t take much to keep her happy…a book, a really big glass of wine, and at least thirty minutes of complete silence every day. She still keeps her toes in the world of health care marketing, where she made her living pre-babies. Now she stays home, writing and mommy-ing full time (this translates to almost every day being a ‘pajama day’ at the Sorensen household…don’t judge). She lives in West Michigan with her husband, two exceptionally adorable sons and big, shaggy rescue dog.
