AAAAHHHHHHH! Oh Gawd sorry for screaming just omg Paris is just too good for this world.
OMG and it’s in the midst of a bakery show like my favorite The Great British Bake off. I always love the bakers that are so awkward and anxious but have the best bakes.
Paris was entered into the Bake Expectations by his roommate cause that isn’t something he would do on his own regardless of his talent.
He meets Tariq during a baking accident on the show and tries very hard to make a good impression but can’t stop saying things that are kind of inappropriate.
I always enjoy when there is a person with anxiety or any other mental health conditions the other person is supportive and kind of opposite personality.
And yes Paris I thought I was the only one that cycles through all the worst case scenarios from ok to gruesome constantly. I’m always in crisis mode in my head but you can’t tell. And I’m always talking about nothing. But only to my husband lol, who listens to every 20th word or looks for key words🤣. I just love when people talk like Paris.
There were so many fun side characters with both of their roommates Morag and the Dave’s.
This book was as everyone is saying more a fiction book with the romance on the side. Paris’ anxiety and mental health journey are a big part of the story as well.
Thank you readforeverpub and netgalley for the e-ARC for my honest and voluntary review.
From the bestselling author of Boyfriend Material comes a sweet and scrumptious romantic comedy about facing your insecurities, finding love, and baking it off, no matter what people say.
Paris Daillencourt is a recipe for disaster. Despite his passion for baking, his cat, and his classics degree, constant self-doubt and second-guessing have left him a curdled, directionless mess. So when his roommate enters him in Bake Expectations, the nation’s favourite baking show, Paris is sure he’ll be the first one sent home.
But not only does he win week one’s challenge—he meets fellow contestant Tariq Hassan. Sure, he’s the competition, but he’s also cute and kind, with more confidence than Paris could ever hope to have. Still, neither his growing romance with Tariq nor his own impressive bakes can keep Paris’s fear of failure from spoiling his happiness. And when the show’s vicious fanbase confirms his worst anxieties, Paris’s confidence is torn apart quicker than tear-and-share bread.
But if Paris can find the strength to face his past, his future, and the chorus of hecklers that live in his brain, he’ll realize it’s the sweet things in life that he really deserves.
