Frosted Sweets: a Romantic Comedy (A Taste of Love Series #1) by A.M. Willard


frosted sweetsBlurb:
 Morgan Lewis, a hopeless romantic and the bubbly owner of the Polka Dot Bakery, couldn’t wait to wed the man of her dreams. Feeling giddy as she walks through the park carrying her beautiful wedding dress over her shoulder, she sees a sight no soon-to-be bride should ever see. In that moment, the wedding of her dreams becomes a story fit for a gossip magazine. As tears stream down her face, she wonders who to cancel first; the church or the caterer.

Insert Jayden Rivers whose career in production has him relocated to Atlanta. His mother always said it would take a special woman to lure him away from his work, but he felt like someone sucker punched him when he saw her… the sweet smelling goddess carrying a wedding dress through the park. Will Jayden be able to set the camera aside and restore Morgan’s faith in love?

Eh, I wasn’t really impressed with this book.  I saw it on Books and Bindings and it was free at the time so I though, What the hay?  And the cover is pretty.

I’m glad the book was free, this story seemed to drag on for me.  And it was a lot of telling and not enough showing for my tastes.  I finished it so that’s something, but the climax wasn’t nearly as good as it could have been. I don’t know, it was just missing something. It seemed a bit cliche and tropey IMO.  And while some tropes are awesome and I never get tired of them, this was not one of them.

Morgan was lost after finding out her fiance was cheating.  This is where I get annoyed. She was with him for years and constantly did what he wanted, then all of the sudden she switches gears and decides that she is living her life for her.  I mean, I get it, he cheated, but it just didn’t make sense to me that that is what caused her to have this epiphany. Maybe I wasn’t in the mood but this just seemed way to easy.

And the other romance seemed way too fast, like who falls in love after one encounter.   IDK, it was very all over the place for me.  I don’t think I’ll be reading anymore in this series.  Bummer.
