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.

Book Riot, Sweet as Sugar Romances for Spring (and Summer)

Korean American author Jayci Lee is on metaphorical fire this year and A Sweet Mess will make you want Netflix to hire her to write a slate of witty rom-coms, STAT. - Cosmopolitan

Lee's lush romance is a delectable delight. - Booklist

Lee's (Temporary Wife Temptation) latest is perfect for anyone who enjoyed Amy E. Reichert's The Coincidence of Coconut Cake. Readers will get lost in Aubrey's sugary creations while rooting for the characters to find their happily ever after. - Library Journal

Lee is a gifted writer, particularly when writing about the all-consuming power of desire. - Entertainment Weekly

A perfect balance of impeccable wit, laugh out loud hilarity, and off the charts chemistry. A Sweet Mess is a sinfully decadent romantic comedy! --Helena Hunting, New York Times bestselling author

A rich, vibrant romance that's a feast for all the senses!- Lauren Blakely, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author

A wonderful twist on a classic romance...this is a fun summer read that is best enjoyed poolside or at the beach. - Lit Up, Southern California News Group

About Jayci Lee

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.
