Recipe for Romance
1 cup crazy Myer triplet aka Boone Myer
1 cup snobby guppie aka Robbie Gaither
2 tbsp. nutty family and friends
1 tbsp. epic beard (no substitutions)
1 tbsp. sexual compatibility
1 tsp. misunderstandings
Preheat sexual tension to 375 Degrees. In a large American City aka Atlanta, Georgia, combine the odd ball Myer triplet, Boone, with equal parts stuffy, snobby uptight Robbie Gaither. When mostly together, add family and friends, who mean well but… bless their hearts, they try. Toss in Boone’s gorgeous beard and do not forget the intense, sometimes ridiculous attraction these two bone heads have for each other and lastly throw in two lives that seem to only get in the way of these two making each other happy. Mix until a complete chaotic mess and pour into a well lubed… check that, pour in well-greased pan and bake until very, very firm. Bake for one hour. Serve hot and eat with your fingers. Very messy, very funny and very tasty!
Boone Myer is a flamboyant, loud, bearded, sexy man who is comfortable with himself and cares less about what others might say. And why should he? He’s fabulous, and he bakes. Robbie Gaither is a stuck-up, higher than thou, events planner that is all about the labels he and his friends wear and judges those who he feels are below him. Now don’t get ahead of yourself and hate on Robbie, because he just might surprise you.
The way Mathew has written The Baker is like a light, fluffy dessert. The banter between Boone and Robbie and the way they can get under each other’s skin is sweet with a bit of sour that makes for a delicious dessert. I think what makes the story so good is the way Mathew’s characters come alive on the page. I also enjoy the way he brings other characters from other stories into this one, so you get a little catching up from the past.
There are so many love stories that have drama and what I love about The Baker is that it’s a light hearted romance. So if that’s what you’re looking for I would defiantly pick this one up and give a read and maybe, if you haven’t already, then get the first story in the series too.
