With This Cake by Samantha Chase
Leanna and Brody’s story in With This Cake, book two in Samantha Chase’s new Meet Me at the Altar series, is an emotional, heartwarming, tale of two independent, strong, and motivated people who have struggled to find their true love.
Leeanna Baker knew that with a last name like hers, she would someday become a baker. As the go-to baker for Meet Me at the Altar, is truly a dream come true for her. Leanna loves creating the perfect desserts to help couples celebrate their big days.
Despite all of her hard work and supposedly the way to a man’s heart being through his stomach, she has yet to attract, or find, her perfect man through her treats. Brody King figures if is he has to take time off of work he would rather train for his upcoming triathlon rather than his brother’s engagement party. If it was a normal engagement party, one evening of celebration, he could have handled it. But no, his brother and the bride-to-be had to go to the extremes and plan a week of family togetherness and crazy wedding games.
Brody knows there is no way he is going to survive it. While out running, Brody crashed into Leanna, knocking her down, and ruining a hundred cupcakes. Knowing the polite thing to do, Brody offers to help her make more. Working together they decide to be each other’s fake plus-one for the party, except it doesn’t feel like pretend. The magnetic attraction, along with off the charts chemistry building between them has Brody craving not just Leanna’s cupcakes and muffins, but this baker as well. Being a commitment-phobe, it is going to take more than their attraction to change Brody into wanting Leanna to be part of his life.
Ms. Chase wrote an amazing, heartwarming and emotional story that is not to be missed. She provided a tale rich with sizzling chemistry, amusing banter, and an endearing cast of secondary characters giving Leanna and Brody a chance at love, happiness and the possibility of a forever together. I highly recommend With This Cake to other readers and look forward to the next book in this series.
