Allen Jameson had it all—the perfect house, the perfect partner, the perfect life—until his partner, Gary, died suddenly, leaving him alone in the real world, where life isn’t so pretty and people make mistakes. Now Allen is the owner of Sweet ‘n’ Sassy Cupcake Shop, a cute boutique downtown, where he invents delicious flavors like strawberry and French meringue. Between working long hours and making special orders, Allen barely has time to think.

Once cheap viagra 100mg I find the source of the vertigo, I rehabilitate the dysfunctional system. However, it may also be combined with other ingredients such as, Gold, which is often known as Swarna bhasma in ancient ayurvedic texts for its abundant health benefits, Kesar and other important herbs like vardenafil cost Ashwagandha, Kaunch Beej and Safed Mushali to form a power packed super food. Then a hunky contractor walks into his shop looking for a treat. Allen and Byron Bannigan are total opposites, but they’re perfect together—salty and sweet like Allen’s signature peanut butter and chocolate ganache cupcakes. But as Allen struggles to juggle his business and his boyfriend, he learns he can only handle so much. He may have to choose between the cupcakes in his store and the cupcake in his bed.

Allen found himself at a loss after the death of his long-term, beloved older partner. To help keep himself busy he decides to use some of the money left to him to open his own tiny little cupcake store. Byron walks in one day, desperate for some sweet treats for his workers and the two men instantly hit it off. Can each of them find what they’re craving?

I really loved this sweet full length story. I found both Allen and B’s characters to be well drawn, complex and deliciously layered. The emotional connection between them is exceptionally written to my mind, and totally believable. There’s no insta-lust here and readers who enjoy a slower pace to their romances should find this as enjoyable as I did. I really loved how the fuller length of the story allowed the pace between the men to be just perfect for me – fast enough it didn’t feel like it dragged the story down, but slow enough that it didn’t feel rushed and there was no immediate jumping into bed.

I also was really pleased, despite the sweetness of the story and the deeply emotional connection between the two men, their path wasn’t unrealistically smooth. Allen’s friends (mostly in connection with his previous partner) were very well meaning, but nosy and a bit of a downer to B and Allen’s fledgling relationship. And there were hiccups along the way with Allen’s business. Conflict and real-world problems that I feel were totally relatable – nothing overly dramatic or unbelievable, but just normal, understandable problems many of us face now and then. I really feel these additional parts gave the story some realism (Allen and B didn’t just exist in a happy bubble of joy and discovery as they came together) but it wasn’t over-the-top and I could see that the two men were able to work together and support each other through life’s usual ups and downs. This also helped really sell me on their long-term potential.

I found the sex between the men to be both hotly explicit but also sweet and tender. Their connection was clear and I had no doubt of their compatibility or their love for each other. Aside from the explicit nature of the sex there is nothing envelope pushing or even remotely kinky to be found here – readers who simply like the bedroom door open and a bit of heat in their romance should find this suits their tastes very well. More importantly, this is an exceptional story showing the depth of emotion and real connection that two men can find together when they discover the right partner.

I found this story to be highly emotional, very sweet and utterly dear. It will be going on my keeper shelf and I know I will adore reading it many times in the future. This is a deliciously sweet story for when you need a good pick-me-up and I can strongly recommend it.
