First thought when finished: Cute read! I have had those insecurities before 🙂

What I Loved: I loved Jenny, Katie, and Darcy! Their moments of banter, wit, and conversations were a joy to read. Darcy was a character and her blunt self-descriptions rang true in my head. Though some people will find her a little neurotic, I found her to be adorably insecure. None of us are perfect but it is so much easier to look at our own flaws than accept them.

What I Liked: Thorne was such a good guy! While I never fell head over heels for him, I did really like him. More importantly, I really liked him with Darcy!

Final Thoughts when Finished: This is just a cute romance! Now I want cupcakes!

    I can't help but think how much fun it would be to run a bakery. Except for the unnaturally early hour they wake up to bake. But other than that, I wouldn't mind spending all my time around the yummy pastries! I could use a good, cute romance right now, so I think I'll try this one:)
