Make It Sweet by Kristen Callihan

Their broken pieces just might fit together and make them whole. Make It Sweet by Kristen Callihan.

From New York Times bestselling author Kristen Callihan comes a charming, emotional romance about redefining dreams and discovering unlikely love along the way.

Life for Emma isn’t good. The world knows her as Princess Anya on Dark Castle, but then her character gets the axe—literally. The cherry on top is finding her boyfriend in bed with another woman. She needs a break, and sanctuary comes in the form of Rosemont, a gorgeous estate in California promising rest and relaxation.

Then she meets the owner’s equally gorgeous grandson, ex–hockey player and current recluse Lucian Osmond, and she sees her own pain and yearning reflected in his eyes.

He’s charming when he wants to be but also secretive and gruff, with protective walls as thick as Emma’s own. Despite a growing attraction, they avoid each other.

But then there’s an impromptu nighttime skinny-dip, and Lucian’s luscious homemade tarts and cream cakes start arriving at Emma’s door, tempting her to taste life again…

In trying to stay apart, they only grow closer—and their broken pieces just might fit together and make them whole.

I really enjoyed this book – lots going on in Emma's life, added to which Lucian is a man who plays hockey and is a fabulous baker... perfection!

From the moment that Emma arrived at the Rosemont estate and we get to meet the wonderful characters who live there, there is magic in the air. It felt a bit like we entered a set of an Agatha Christie mystery set in the 1930s with a modern twist. Emma watching Lucian swimming late at night; the arrival of pastry treats for her breakfast; who might be the talented pastry chef; the fashion style of Sal and his relationship with Amalie; I could go on. Really, I think it best you just grab a copy and dive right in!

As well as Lucian having to decide what comes next in his career – and the decision has a potentially huge impact on how he lives his life – Emma is too at a crossroads, as her hugely successful role has ended and she is uncertain of whether she will be able to transcend the Princess label. Thankfully, these big issues do not make them both selfish, just confused and in need of support rather than guidance.

Highly recommended! In fact, I have already downloaded another of Kristen Callihan's books, as I have really enjoyed the writing style and the humour of this fun read.
