Oh my word. I think I put on five kilos just reading this book, and the romance was even more delicious than the food. But this story was so much more than a light and fluffy endorphin stimulant. These characters had some tough choices before them and had to ask themselves: Which regret can you live with? And which one would tear you apart? I can tell you how 999,999 contemporary romances would have answered those questions, but this story was the one-in-a-million that turned those answers on their heads and went deeper, bringing the story to a conclusion that set it apart as a loaf of hand-crafted artisan bread in a world full of supermarket sandwich loaves.
But I’m not going to lie to you; Melody and Justin made this book. I was hooked from the minute Justin knocked on the bakery door two pages in. They had such incredibly natural chemistry, and Carla Laureano not only knows how to get the most out of every last scrumptious drop, she also knows how to make it rich and emotionally satisfying without becoming sickly sweet. Never mind that all of that only made Justin and Melody’s dilemma more agonising!
I also need to mention the secondary characters, who added so much to this novel. In many ways, this was a story about family and friendship as much as it was a romance. But I could gush about this book for ages, when really, you just need to read it for yourself. Go and get a copy now!
