When baker extraordinaire Leilani Trusdale left the bustle of New York City for Georgia's sleepy Sugarberry Island, she didn't expect her past to follow. Yet suddenly, her former boss, Baxter Dunne, aka Chef Hot Cakes, the man who taught her everything pastry, wants to film his hit cooking show in her tiny cupcakery. The same Chef Hot Cakes whose molten chocolate-brown eyes and sexy British accent made Lani's mouth water and her cheeks blush the color of raspberry filling - stirring all kinds of kitchen gossip, much of which Lani wished was true....
Lani's friends are convinced that this time around, Baxter is the missing ingredient in her recipe for happiness. But convincing Lani will be a job for Baxter himself. And he'll need more than black velvet frosting to sweeten the deal....

Predictable formula romance.
It's nicely written and gorgeously read by Amanda Ronconi. In fact, I only downloaded the audio because of Ms. Ronconi. She must have been having a dry spell at the time. Normally, she chooses better.
If you've ever read any modern paperbacks, then you already know this story. It's set in a small town on a small island in Georgia and that was fun - or would have been if there had been any references to island living at all. There were also cupcakes and that was fun too. Who doesn't like cupcakes? (other than that cake guy on TV)
As for the rest - I found myself thinking: come on! how much more can we talk about this relationship? This is not junior high! And I kept hoping for a dead body to enliven the plot.
So - decide for yourselves. It's an excellent example of what it is.
Oh, another thing. I like series listening. On second look though, the island town is all that really seems to string this series of books together.

Just as Sweet as the Cupcakes Made by Lani
If you could sum up Sugar Rush in three words, what would they be?
Sweet, Humorous and Charming
What did you like best about this story?
I actually loved Baxter! I loved that he was so unsure of himself when it came to Lani. Their kisses were toe curling cause they gave me the best first-kiss squee feeling!
Which scene was your favorite?
Definitely the first kiss between Lani and Baxter...I simply adored Baxter's ramblings and the shock from Lani...finally getting something she had wanted for so long, and it was just wrong timing!
Any additional comments?
This was my first book from Donna Kauffman, and I really enjoyed it! I though the narrator did a phenomenal job with the voice of Baxter (English accent), and the story was just read so well!

slow and boring.
I love to bake but this story is dull and very slow. Mills and boon but with very little boon!!

Enjoyable quite explicit towards the end
I enjoyed the story but was a bit surprised by how explicit it became towards the end. I nearly listened to it in the car on a long journey with my mother but glad i didn't .
