There's one thing Maddie Bird (18) finds more tempting than red velvet cake: her coworker, Drew. All it takes is one of his sly winks or a playful hip-check by the cooler, and she's incinerating the cookies. Her boyfriend would not approve.

When a reality TV crew descends upon the bakery, her simple summer job gets even more complicated. Maddie could become the Bakery Network's next breakout star, if she can handle the heat of being cast as a show villain. Drew has an alternate idea: run away from everything, with him and his sexy tousled hair. She decides to take the leap, but when she finds out Drew's been hiding a shocking secret, Maddie looks down at her packed suitcase and takes a moment to think. She could fly off to Australia with a guy she hardly knows, or she could pick up her suitcase and hit him with it.


Is there anyone Maddie can turn to for advice? Her sister has terrible taste in boyfriends, so she's out. Roxanne, the charismatic reality TV show producer, has some interesting opinions, but may be more interested in ratings. Maddie's best friend keeps pushing her cousin Hudson, a guy who thinks he's too cool for entry-level jobs, but makes origami. Come on. Origami?
I told you I was stuck in bakery lit. lol.  This one is geared more for young adults or even teens, but a good book nonetheless.
