This was just a ton of fun. I loved it so much! Violet is a great driven character, willing to work her butt off to get where she wants to be. She isn't going to let anyone get in her way. But, as smart and intelligent as she is, she has a few big moments that just made me shake my head. I just didn't believe that she wouldn't ask for help - or at least be honest about what she was going through. It didn't really fit with her character.
Ben was another great character. Thrown together with Violet in a famous bakery, he quickly finds himself in over his head. Not just with the inner workings of the bakery, but with the cute production manager that he can't stop thinking about.
There are a few big conflicts and a few little ones. Both have major (and I mean major) ex issues that just keep popping up at the worst time. Violet's was especially creepy. Plus, they work together, and dating a co-worker is a big no-no.
They manage to navigate the waters in a fun and exciting way that really kept me turning the pages. I will have to check out more from this author.
