They call me the sugar whisperer.
Anything your tongue desires, I can bake it. Scones? Child’s play. Cupcakes?
I’ll frost them so good you won’t know what hit you. Donuts? Please.
You’re talking to a master baker.
But there’s one egg I’ve never been able to crack.
My best friend.
Correction: My former best friend.
She’s the apple in my pie. The whip in my cream. The lemon in my meringue. The
wish in my bone.
She’s the one who got away.
After ten years in the military, she’s back. She’s bruised and battered by
life, but she’s back.
Except she’s not my second chance. She’s gone to the dark side.
Running a rival bakery in a town not big enough for two.
So now I have to decide—which do I want more?
Or the woman I never should’ve let go in the first place?Master Baker is a deliciously fun friends-to-enemies-to-lovers romantic comedy
featuring a smooth-talking baker, the one who got away, and a goat with more
matchmaking tendencies than a nosy old grandpa. It stands alone with no
cheating or cliffhangers.
With Master Baker, Pippa Grant produces a funny and sexy enjoyable read from start to finish.
Grady Rock is the best at what he does, and what he does is dirty talk his baked goods into orgasmic treats for your mouth until his best friend and the girl who got away comes back into the feuding neighboring town and opens up bakery with her mother and younger sister and starts stealing his customers. Annika Williams automatically becomes the enemy. But honestly, his heart, cannoli and goat aren’t into it. They want her back. Feuding towns and bakery wars be d@mm3d. Can Grady find a way to make both bakeries thrive and get the love of his life forever?
Resolute in not making the same mistakes her mother did, Annika renounced all boys while in high school, except Grady’s friendship. And when they finished high school she wanted to be a strong, independent woman able to stand on her own two feet. She served her country in the army until a decade later a family emergency forced her to go back home and face the only man she ever loved. Can they find their way back?
What a fun book to read. This was my first Pippa Grant read and it had me smiling the entire time. I really enjoyed her characters. Who can resist a smooth talking master baker who sweet talks his cakes?
“So perfect,” I whisper. “I could lick you from top to bottom and over again.”
And what ensues after Grady and Annika realize that bakery wars are good for business is one hilarious scene after another as the town of Shipwreck and Sarcasm respectively support their bakery. Grady’s goat Sue, and his grandfather’s parrot steal the show more than once, Grady dirty talks Annika and heck breaks loose when an actual bakery contest between Grady and Annika is televised.
There was hilarity, heart and romance in this story. I very much enjoyed the back and forth between Grady and Annika. Anything that came out of Long Beak Silver was spirited and funny as was all of Grady’s family.
Master Baker is a standalone rom-com by Pippa Grant. It is a hilariously delicious stand alone told from both points of view, with a happy ending. No cliffhanger.
