An inherited parking spot. That’s all it took to make Natalie Moran’s food truck dreams come true. But her dream space is attached to a bakery inherited by someone else—drop dead gorgeous Eric Schneider, a financial consultant who wouldn’t know a cupcake from a cannoli. And he wants to buy Nat out, no matter what she has to say about it.
Eric’s determined to build his own business, but he needs the super cute klutz with the cupcake truck to help. If Nat will teach him the basics of running a bakery, he’ll give her free kitchen time. Except…neither expects the heat burning between them or the possibility that their arrangement might become permanent.
When it all blows up, Nat is convinced his actions mean betrayal. It’s up to Eric to regain her trust and show her he’s a man who is truly, madly in love with her, before she disappears from his life forever.

So, I’m gonna gush a little, okay? I really, really liked this one. It was super cute and adorable. I adore the relationship that these two share. It’s just amazing, you know.
Yes, they’re attracted to each other from the beginning. Nat thinks that Mr. Gelato who always buys ice cream off of her truck is delicious. And Eric keeps coming back for more icecream, even though he doesn’t really like cakes because he likes his Cupcake. So, yeah. They like the look of each other from the beginning. But, like always, there’s things that keep them from being together. In their case, it’s because they inherit parts of the same property and intend to buy each other out. Also, Eric’s parents are nosy and overbearing and don’t want him to go out with a girl like Nat.
Whatever be the case, Eric and Nat grow close and fall in love and there’s even more complications. Eric’s parents meddle a lot which causes a lot of misunderstanding between the two of them and leads to them almost breaking up. So, yeah. There’s drama. There’s loads of drama. But, there’s also super cute and adorable, swoon worthy moments and a lot of indecision. I like it.
The characters grow and branch out, developing as the story progresses. I like that. The dialogue is natural and right. It never feels overdone or forced. It flows naturally. The story in itself progresses beautifully.
Nat and Eric are so good together it makes my heart burst. They’re cute and adorable and sweet and sexy and gorgeous together. I really, really like them together. They’re so good for each other and they bring out the best in each other.
The highlight of the story is obviously when Eric finally stands up to his parents about everything. His life, his career choices, his girlfriend. Everything. It hurts him to break his parents’ hearts because he is an amazing person and he loves them and they’ve done a lot for him in all his years, but he’s got his own life and he wants to live it the way he wants. Not how they want. And, he finally does do it. That, is great to read.
All in all, this is a really cute and enjoyable read. I’m pretty sure you can’t go wrong with this one because it’s so cute! ❤
