My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This book hit my sweet tooth just right. That includes both the romance and the delicious sounding treats. The humour was also well done. I got some looks for laughing out loud at some of the scenes.
Lara and Graham’s story was a delicious one!

Sashimi (Evil Sushi #2) by C.A. King

This is another great read by the author. This is the second book in the Evil Sushi Series. Sashimi picks up after the first book and it’s a must read.

Alieen is one of the survivors of Evil Sushi and is fighting them again. When another branch of the government takes over her base things might not go as smoothly as she wants. The quote I chose for Alieen is: “I should mention the shoreline is creeping inland. I’ve been watching it every day. That could be a problem. Strange weather is being reported from all over. We should keep an eye on it.”

Highly recommended for Horror lovers.

Spring’s Showers: Romantically Seasonal: Spring by C.A. King

Another amazing read by the author. This is the first book in the Romantically Seasonal series. What can happen when Cupid gets against the other Gods?

Greta is Mother Nature and can make plants grow. When she plays poker with Gods and Cupid anything can happen. Now she’s got the task of finding a couple like Cupid does. Is it as easy as she thinks? The quote I chose for Greta is: “There are still a few good people in this world, aren’t there? Can’t a stranger help his fellow man out of the kindness of his heart anymore? Tsk. If it were Christmas time, no one would think twice about the matter. Why is December the only time humans can share goodwill? It makes no sense.”

Eros is Cupid and doesn’t get the credit he deserves. When he thinks about it he’s got the hardest job of them all. Now he’s going to bet them all that their jobs are easier. The quote I chose for Eros is: “I’ll guess I’ll see you when the time is right. Until then, I’m out. Greta, it’s been an adventure.”

Highly recommended for Paranormal Romantic Comedy lovers.

C.A. King never disappoints. Time and time again I learn they are my favorite author for a reason!

This book was unexpectedly wonderful. I was apprehensive at first as how can a short book really be well written but this book as it all! Its funny, its emotional and its inspirational!

Clover well she is down on her luck with a streak a mile long of bad things that could make anyone give up, just when she needs it, Clover comes along!

This book gave me the hallmark romance fix I needed! It’s a very cute, romance read that is written in a unique way. I loved Graham’s character and his interactions within the book matched him very well. I didn’t really enjoy Lara and couldn’t really connect with her. I think the reason for her being in Cupid’s Cove was a legit reason, I just don’t think the weight of how her mental health was impacted was written in a way that conveyed authentically what she was experiencing.

My Valentine’s Day Cookie Match is part of the Welcome to Cupid’s Cove series. The series is set in Cupid’s Cove, written by different authors. I grabbed this one because I have read many books from this author, and they never disappoint. Graham is new to town and has a great dating app connected to a bakery. Lara works in her mother’s bakery and does not like the new competition.
This is a sweet romance that I read quickly and left me in a great mood. I liked the characters and their will they/won’t they story. I look forward to reading more from this author soon.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Graham is quitting his city job to move Cupid’s cove and launch his new matchmaking app and coffee shop. He is banking on people making it popular in their quest to find love. Lara runs a bakery with her mother in Cupid’s Cove. After her recent breakup, the bakery is all she has to keep her sane. That is, until the mayor (who happens to be Lara’s father) approves a new coffee shop to open up in town.

However, when Graham’s business opens up, Lara finds herself spending more and more time with Graham and their chemistry and banter is there in spades! But, as it is with small towns, his ex comes through town and stirs up some drama and families meddle under the guise of doing what’s best. Can these two make it work despite being rivals (and the age gap)?

The story was a cute small-town rivalry story. It was a quick read and a quick-paced story. Using the radio intros was something I enjoyed reading…and the recipes sprinkled within the pages sound yummy!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is a great, heart-warming contemporary romance that I devoured in a few hours. It’s a feelgood romance that was great to read after having read a heavy, dark romance before it. I enjoy both types but this was just what the doctor ordered at the time.
Marketing specialist Graham has decided on a career move, opening a cookie shop with the added bonus of having a dating app based on your purchases. Very apt in a town called Cupid’s Cove. What he doesn’t expect is Lara, the mayor’s daughter, whose family own the local bakery. Intent on hating Graham for proving competition, she’s surprised by how much the two of them click.
As always, true love never run’s smoothly and Graham and Lara’s love is put to a very big test to prove just how true it is.
This is a great read, which I really enjoyed and would definitely recommend it to others, especially if you are looking for a quick, heart-warming read to lose yourself in for a few hours.

This is such a great book. It was so much fun to read. I loved the radio personalities sprinkled throughout the book. Lara is a small town girl who just wants to take a break and figure everything out. That is until a new coffee shop comes to town. Now she needs to make sure that her family’s bakery survives the competition. Then she meets the competition. Graham is the owner of the new coffee shop. Graham and Lara’s attraction are obvious, but there are obstacles in their way. Can they make it through? If all that wasn’t enough there are the most wonderful sounding recipes that you can make.

Squeal! What a treat! This book has characters who reluctantly fall in love, and are willing to do what is best for one another. We see family members looking out for one another, without being intrusive. We glimpse the tourism industry from the perspective of a small town. We also have characters in the periphery of the story, who have a story of their own unfold throughout the tale

I LOVED THIS BOOK! What a fun, sweet romantic story the author has written about a bakery owner that finds love when she least expects it. The author did such a great job, as she usually does, with the chemistry between the characters. This was a quick read, but I didn’t want to put it down. Also, might I mention that there are recipes included for different baked goods? Yeah, and I tried one of them last night for the macadamia nut cookies. They are delicious. And they are all gone. I can’t wait to try the others. If you like heart-felt romances then please pick up this book. You won’t be disappointed.

I have read a few books from this author and she continues to blow my mind. This book is from the series Welcome to Cupid’s Cove and it could be read as a stand alone. This is a perfect story if you want some sweet romance. These characters had me hooked to this story right from the beginning. It only took me a few hours to devour this book. I can’t wait to see what she will write next.

He is going to open his very own coffee shop that will also help singles find their true love. Graham meets the beautiful Lara. He can’t get her out of her mind but she is the mayor’s daughter and she also owns a coffee shop. Graham doesn’t want to give up on his dreams but he has never felt this way before. Will Graham find his true love or will it all be just another friendship?

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This book is a very cute, romance novel. Set in the Idyllic town of Cupid’s Cove where the residents thrive off all things love. The characters are pretty typical with a new spin on finding love.

Graham is a successful marketing executive just looking for a change of pace and new way of life. Deciding to open his own business which is a coffee shop/bakery, and launching a new app that offers users the option to get paired based on their taste buds. Essentially what they order, and it seems everyone is not only fond of this new dating idea through Cookie Match but Graham is now the most eligible bachelor in Cupid’s Cove. Enter Lara , who is not only the mayor’s daughter but also runs the only other bakery in town. When their paths cross, sparks ignite, but there is one big secret Lara is keeping from Graham. When the secrets are exposed and the two have to deal with figures from their past will this make or break what they have started? Is a match truly in the cards for Lara and Graham or will the mayor veto it all?

This book has an interesting plot, though it can get a little confusing bouncing back and forth between the radio hosts and the recipes that are thrown into this book. I however, am excited to give the recipes a whirl to not only see if they are legit but how they taste. I will read the other books in the series if only to see what happens in Cupid’s Cove, a charming little town I almost want to live in!

This was a really good read! Not only was it short and sweet, but it was also funny as well! I was pleasantly surprised at how well I actually enjoyed this read. Especially for it being March, and way past Valentine’s Day. Cupid’s Cove is such a cute town, I wish I could visit it in real life! The characters were very loveable and enjoyable. One of my favorite things were the recipes included throughout the book. They sound delicious and i can’t wait to try some of them! I absolutely loved this book and highly recommend it!

Sparks fly between Graham and Lara….but with Lara’s father meddling with this new budding romance..will Graham wait for Lara? Definitely read this cute story to find out!

Shamrock & Clover: Fields Apart by C.A. King

This isn’t the first book I’ve read by the author. I will say it’s the first book like it that I’ve read. Shamrock and Clover may be lucky charms but they are also human.

Clover is a human who wants to find love. When Shamrock shows up she starts falling. Then his past keeps being thrown in her face. Can she forget his past? The quote I chose for Clover is: “How could I ever walk into a room with him? I’d spend the whole time wondering if the women staring at us had already slept with him.”

Shamrock wants love but he doesn’t know how to do it. When life brings him Clover he wants her for good. He can’t find a clover for Clover. The quote I chose for Shamrock is: “Change. In the future. That’s it! You’re a genius. I have to show her the future. Let’s go. You’re driving.”

Highly recommended for Contemporary Romance lovers.

A Flavoursome five-star read. This was such a sweet and romantic read, there was a little of everything in this story, a little sweet, a pinch of sour and a dash of drama, it’s a quick and short read that packs a delicious punch. I enjoyed the rivalry, I enjoyed it all, there was just something about this one that captivated me and made it so I couldn’t put it down, so it’s a good thing its only short as I really didn’t have the time for a full story but couldn’t put this down, it’s a great welcome to Cupid Cove.

I loved how there was the extra added element of recipes and I honestly can’t wait to make them myself. Plus, the radio show banter really added to the overall entertainment of the storyline.

I loved how this novel was set up. With the radio station and the recipes after Every few chapters. This book screamed hallmark movie and I am here for it. I hope it does become a movie. It’s so cute. Graham’s determination to open his bakery despite the backlash from his (ex)girlfriend and the uncertainty of the reception he’d receive in his childhood town, is special. I thought the premise of his bakery was cute too. Cookies and matches. This is actually the first book I’ve read of the Cupid’s cove series and now I’m gonna read them all. I love lighthearted, feel good romance novels.

This is such a sweet romance. Graham and Lara are absolutely adorable together! The town of Cupid’s Cove sounds like the perfect Hallmark movie small town. I was drawn right into this book from the very first page and the cookie recipes that are sprinkled throughout the book made me love it even more! A bakery and a special app bring Graham and Lara together. They start out as rivals but quickly find themselves drawn to each other. Lara is the daughter of the Mayor though so that by itself is an obstacle that they have to overcome, along with a few more that pop up along the way. This is a really unique romance that you won’t want to miss and I am so excited to read more from this series.

Short and sweet are the words I would use to describe this book! It was light and definitely what I wanted to take my mind off the heavy. The main characters in the book are called Graham and Lara. They are great main characters and I liked watching their story unfold and all the messes they got into in their bakeries. Sparks flew between the two and so did the flour! I am looking forward to reading more by this author in the future!!

Graham is ready for a change of pace. He decides to move and open a bakery. Where better could he use the gimmick of a dating app partnered with his bakery than a town named Cupid’s Cove. When Lara finds out about the family bakery’s new competition she does not understand how her father, the mayor, allowed this to happen. When Lara finds herself at Graham’s bakery unwanted sparks fly. Will only one bakery survive? Can they learn to co-exist? Will Lara and Graham act on their feelings?

I thoroughly enjoyed this novella. It was well written, had dynamic characters, and the scene was well set. It really was a quick light hearted read. While this was the first time I had read King, I will definitely be reading her previous books while waiting for the next in this series. My Valentine’s Day Cookie Match was worth the read.
