Russ is awfully sweet for someone who pretends to be so salty.
Gruff ex-punk Russ is a sweets-obsessed baker, struggling to get his dream business off the ground. His cupcakes are delicious and everyone loves them—so why is his bakery failing?
“I’m begging you: please call me for an interview…”
Arthur is about to lose his mind. With his amazing grades and business degree, he thought he’d be a shoe-in at any company in Rosebridge—but he can’t convince anyone to hire him. With his savings drying up, it looks likely that he’ll have to admit defeat and return home to face his homophobic parents.
Arthur is simply off limits—he has to be.
Arthur is perfect for the bakery: motivated, meticulous, and a great worker. Unfortunately, Arthur is also gorgeous, hilarious, and way too young for Russ to date.
Arthur can’t ignore the way Russ’s strong arms and low laugh send electricity up and down his spine. He can’t let anything jeopardize his new job, but Arthur also can’t ignore how perfect the two of them could be together…
Oh man this was so sweet….and cute….and fun! And I just have to open this with…omg…there’s a lap dance scene in this story that stayed with me for days. It’s been over a week since I read this book and I’m still thinking about the smokin’ hot scene. YES, please!!!
Anyway, this is my first book by this author and it was a successful win. I love bakery/baker stories. They always have this super sweet/fun element and Sweet Deal was no exception. This was hot, sweet, funny, and downright adorable at times.
Arthur recently finished his degree and like many others is finding it difficult to find work. At a last ditch effort Arthur pleads with a local bakery owner to hire him on despite any baking experience, intrigued the bakery owner agrees.
Russ has been having a tough time keeping his bakery afloat and hiring on a kid with no experience doesn’t make sense but Russ just can’t so no to the adorable, Arthur.
Arthur however has tons of ideas about using Social Media to promote the bakery which helps increase Russ’s business.
Both Arthur and Russ try their hardest to avoid the attraction that is building between them but they can’t seem to fight it. So, they embark on a friend with benefits situation that eventually builds into a lot more….that HEA….yessssss!
Crazy, cute story…great writing…I love finding new authors…recommend!!
