Publisher's Summary

Love makes men do desperate things - if desperate things means opening a rival cupcake shop to drive your ex-girlfriend crazy.
Twin brothers and air force vets Tanner and Garrett Mann return from deployment to find their thriving business burned to the ground. Time for plan B: move back to their hometown of Beach Pointe to start over.
But that means running into Paige and Morgan Baxter: gorgeous, curvy, and owners of Two Sisters Cupcakes.
There's an old diner for sale across town, Garrett's a great cook, and Tanner has an idea. They'll make savory cupcakes that men would like. We're talking bacon and Cheez Whiz. Even better? They'll call it Mann Cakes. Problem is, they end up attracting an unexpected crowd.
Paige is furious. Every man in her life has left her behind, including Tanner. She's sacrificed everything for her shop. She won't lose it over some egotistical ex-boyfriend, even if he does have an air force-chiseled body. Her younger sister, Morgan, isn't helping matters. She's been gaga over Garrett since high school.
"To hell with that. If it's a fight Tanner wants, it's a fight he'll get." But how much is Paige willing to risk to win a cupcake war?
For fans of sweet, sexy romantic comedy in the same vein as Janet Evanovich, Lauren Blakely, Kylie Gilmore, and Louisa Edwards. Bonus Mann Cakes recipe included!

I loved it!

Humor, romance, and steam are great words to describe this book. I really enjoyed this book with the unexpected twists. My review is not a synopsis of the book, but rather my opinion of it. I thought both the author and narrator were very talented and would listen to more books by them. I was given this book and have voluntarily written this review.

Yummy In So Many Ways!

After twin brothers Tanner and Garrett Mann return from deployment to find their computer business burnt to the ground, they decide to return home to Pointe Beach and start over again. Except this time, they rent an old diner and open a savory cupcake shop, an alternative to all the overly sweet bakeries in the area. The last thing they expect is to find the Baxter sisters as their new rivals.

Paige and Morgan Baxter have their own past with the Mann brothers to deal with. Paige lost her heart to Tanner in high school, and after they broke up she found him with her best friend. And Morgan has always liked gentle Garrett, but was too shy to make a move. Now their business is threatened by the new cupcake shop, and they can't avoid the Mann brothers forever. When Paige and Tanner finally meet, they declare war.

This was a fun steamy read, yummy in so many ways! I loved the descriptions of the food and baking, and spent a lot of the time munching while listening. It was a cute plot with a bit of intrigue and mystery near the end.

The characters were interesting, and the story was told from all four characters point of view, just the way I like. Morgan and Garrett were perfect together. Garrett was adorably shy, and Morgan surprised him over and over with how bold she was now. Paige and Tanner's relationship was more difficult. Between Tanner's ego and Paige's trust issues, they had a lot to work through.

The narration was well done, Addison Spear performed different voices for each female character, and her pace and tone were great. Her narration didn't intrude on the story and really immersed me in it. I received a copy of the audiobook, and I'm voluntarily leaving a review.
