Warning: contains pet rats, hot YouTube celebrity roommates, and one spurned girlfriend about to get even...
Working in a wedding cake shop sucks when you've just been dumped.
Bailey Frost has a recipe for disaster: one cheating ex, one big glass of liquor, and three well-meaning male friends who think her lack of a sex life is funny. Before she knows it, she's confessed that she's never had an orgasm with a man.
Now Bailey has to navigate sappy couples at work, while her friends are hell-bent on helping her get revenge on evil Craig...by dressing up as werewolves, on YouTube.
And one of those friends-- the tall, shy-but-gorgeous Linc--might just want to help Bailey with that other little problem...
This was really really cute. But there was something missing…
This is a really sweet “friends to lovers” trope romance. I love “friends to lovers” so my issue is certainly not the trope. In thinking about this novella, I think my biggest issue is how quickly Linc and Bailey started having sex.
Bailey and her boyfriend broke up one week or so before she and Linc hooked up. In fact, now that I think about it, it wasn’t the sex it was how the sex happened. Bailey came over to Linc’s house to hang out…and walks into a romantic candle-lit set up. Really cute but there was no indication (from either character) that there was ever any interest. So that part felt rushed and weird.
Everything other than that was very sweet and cute.
