Review: A Sweet Mess

I really enjoyed A Sweet Mess! I love stories with a cooking/baking theme and this definitely didn’t disappoint. Aubrey and Landon have a chance meeting in the small town where Aubrey lives, she doesn’t think she’ll ever see him again.

When he writes a scathing review of her bakery, she HOPES she’ll never see him again. When he shows up with a crazy plan to save her bakery, Aubrey isn’t sure whether she should trust him or not. However, it’s the only plan she has, so really has no choice.

Hilarity and lots is tension follows as Aubrey and Landon are continual forced together by circumstances, and some would say by fate.

This book was a lot of fun. Aubrey and Landon had great chemistry, so their predicament just made them all the more endearing. Landon was somewhat hard to like at first, but he does eventually redeem himself – this one is well worth the read.



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 possible…by 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.
