Sweet goodness from Sean Michael!
Allen Jameson had it all—the perfect house, the perfect partner, the perfect life—until his partner, Gary, died suddenly, leaving him alone in the real world, where life isn't so pretty and people make mistakes. Now Allen is the owner of Sweet ‘n’ Sassy Cupcake Shop, a cute boutique downtown, where he invents delicious flavors like strawberry and French meringue. Between working long hours and making special orders, Allen barely has time to think.
Then a hunky contractor walks into his shop looking for a treat. Allen and Byron Bannigan are total opposites, but they're perfect together—salty and sweet like Allen’s signature peanut butter and chocolate ganache cupcakes. But as Allen struggles to juggle his business and his boyfriend, he learns he can only handle so much. He may have to choose between the cupcakes in his store and the cupcake in his bed.
I dare you to read this book and not fall in love with Allen and B!
Allen had his HEA, when his partner died he wasn't looking for another; he was just trying to survive. He spends his days creating wonderful cupcakes for his friends and customers in his small shop. Until the day Byron walks in and his heart starts to beat again.
B thought all he was looking for were cupcakes for his secretary's baby shower, what he finds is Allen and if he plays his cards right; he may have just found love.
But between B’s construction company, Allen’s growing business and some shady friends coming together isn’t going to be easy.
This book took me on an emotional ride, it made me sad, and angry and happy. Not to mention flushed because when these two men come together they melt the frosting right off the cupcakes! There are an assortment of secondary characters that add to the drama and give the book it's "real" feeling. And of course me being the series whore that I am, I am really hoping that Isaac get's a story as well.
I am a fan of Sean Michael and this story fits right into his long line of wonderful couples, with real, everyday lives who just want someone to love.
