A Sweet Mess



Korean-American author Jayci Lee delights with A Sweet Mess, a delicious and light-hearted romantic comedy that readers will devour. 

Aubrey Choi loves living in her small town nestled in the foothills of California, running her highly successful bakery away from the watch of her strict Korean parents. When a cake mix-up and a harsh review threaten all of her hard work and her livelihood, she never thought the jaded food critic would turn out to be her one-night stand. And she sure as hell never thought she’d see the gorgeous Korean hunk again. But when Landon Kim waltzes into her bakery trying to clean up the mess he had a huge hand in making, Aubrey is torn between throwing and hearing him out.

When she hears his plan to help save her business, Aubrey knows that spending three weeks in California wine country working with Landon is a sure recipe for disaster. Her head is telling her to take the chance to save her bakery while her heart—and her hormones—are at war on whether to give him a second chance. And it just so happens that Landon’s meddling friends want them to spend those three weeks as close as possible...by sharing a villa.

When things start heating up, both in and out of the kitchen, Aubrey will have to make a choice—to stick it out or risk her heart.

My Review

This is the second book I have read by this author. As an Korean myself, I love that I have discovered Jayci Lee. I can't remember reading many books where the characters are of Asian/Korean descent. Just like the prior novel, I really enjoyed reading this book. Therefore, I am happy to report that I have found a new author that I hope to read for years to come. 

Aubrey is a sweetheart. Landon is too but his pride just got in the way in the beginning. Therefore, turning him into the "enemy". Luckily, his charm and love for good food/sweets, and the fact that he and Aubrey shared good chemistry are all factors as to why he is went from zero to hero. 

This book does not feature just yummy sweets that I may have caught myself day dreaming of and drooling over but this book also has humor and romance. Fans of rom coms will want to add this book to their reading pile. A Sweet Mess is sure to delight readers with fun, engaging characters mixed with a dash of romance!




JAYCI LEE writes poignant, sexy, and laugh-out-loud romance every free second she can scavenge and is semi-retired from her fifteen-year career as a defense litigator. She loves food, wine, and travelling, and incidentally so do her characters. Jayci lives in sunny California with her tall-dark-and-handsome husband, two amazing boys with boundless energy, and a fluffy rescue whose cuteness is a major distraction. She is the author of A Sweet Mess.
