Synopsis |

A fun, sweet, and sexy romance with a swoon-worthy rockstar and a single mom that will make your heart burst with happiness.

Rockstar Hudson Mitchell is over the glitz and spotlight of the music industry. Desperate for a break from the fast-paced life of fame, he retreats to the one place that has always been home.

Brooksville, California.

It's the same place where Charlie has taken refuge, trying to build a life for herself and her young daughter. The quiet, small-town atmosphere and her new bakery venture are exactly what she needs to pick up the pieces of her shattered past.

As they spend more time together, neither of them is prepared for the effect Charlie has on Hudson, and how important she would become for his career.

Review

This was such a sweet first time read from a new to me author, Jasmin Miller. Rockstar and single parent romances are quickly becoming reads that I’ll gravitate towards and Baking with a Rockstar was such an adorable read.

I love a great rockstar romance and the more you read, you’ll quickly see the different personas that the hero can take. Sometimes angsty with a bit of that alpha inside of them. It definitely wasn’t the vibe that Hudson was emitting, he was such an endearing character that was literally sweet all the way around. And he’s just so smooth about everything it’s nearly impossible to not fall in love with him. Swoony for days!

Charlie is a heroine that you’ll absolutely adore, definitely a strong character that is totally rocking the single-mama life and starting her own bakery.

Everything between Hudson and Charlie just felt so natural. I liked that they easily transitioned into this sort of roommate life together and then watching their relationship grow was the absolute best.

I gotta say, after reading this, I’m definitely looking forward to anything else that Jasmin has up her sleeve. She weaved such a sweet and endearing story with some twists that’ll have your jaw on the floor. I love being surprised in my romances, I can’t say that it happens too often, but when an author can do it. I’m instantly a fan!

I appreciated that this wasn’t such a heavy read and one that I could simply enjoy in my pjs and fuzzy socks with a cup of coffee! Too much detail?

Jasmin, you have a new fan and I can’t wait for the next book in this sweet little world!

Major thank you to Jasmin Miller for the reader’s copy!

excerpt

The smart and rational side of my brain seems to be on a break because all I’m capable of doing is raking my eyes over Mr. Basketball Shorts. He’s tall with broad shoulders and the most pronounced abs I’ve ever seen up close. The baseball cap on his head is turned backward, and he’s currently wiping his face off with what I assume to be his shirt. That is the only reason he hasn’t seen me yet, and why I haven’t seen his face yet either. But I’m going out on a limb here and say it’s probably as gorgeous as the rest of him.

My eyes drift back to his drool-worthy chest, following the beads of sweat that are slowly running down his torso to the V-shaped lower abs until they disappear into the pair of shorts that sits low on his hips.

Sudden heat shoots through my body, making my cheeks tingle from the force of it. My brain uses that moment of distraction to finally kick back in again, reminding me of the situation at hand.

A total stranger is standing in my kitchen.

Half-naked.

And we’re all alone in this house.
