I was given the ARC for Sprinkled with Love By Jennifer Faye for a fair and honest review.
Sprinkled with Love By Jennifer Faye The third book in the Bachelor bake off series what is unique about this series is all five books are written by different author each book is roughly 190-160 some pages and are all stand lone, and can be read out of order. Now even though they are written by Different authors they still center around the charity bachelor bake off and the small town of Marietta, so if you love small town Romances this a great series for you. Also if you’re a fan of closed door/ no sex then the two books I’ve read are perfect for you.
This book centers on Jillian Parker and Avery Wainwright Now apparently they used to be friends and Jillian used to be love in with him. When his parents die Jillian even took on the job being a nanny to his brother and sister while Avery worked. Avery is cowboy who has done the rodeo circuit and worked on a ranch, while it’s never said that he’s a cowboy outright there is nothing else he could be. Jillian was in love with Avery but he never felt the same and shunned her attempts. So now years Later Jillian has got her life together and owns a small jewelry shop with her bff and is totally over Avery. But one night her mother’s cat named Romeo gets loose and runs away worried about Jillian take off and is almost run over but Avery, who is back in town fixing up his old house for his sister to live in after she is done with school. It turns out that Romeo is running across town to meet up with Marshmallow who just happens be Avery’s sister cat… hello matchmaking kitties! Let’s not forget the basis of this entire book is Avery is entered in the Bachelor bake off. Also another thing the mention is the bake off in all books follow the same rules for each round the guys must make Cookies, Pie and a Cake. Avery opts to make Cowboy Cookies I googled them because I’ve never heard of them and they don’t look half bad, that and the author did her research. As the story progresses we meet Jillian’s d-bag of an ex and Avery comes to terms with having feelings for Jillian.The back and forth pull between ‘I’m over him’ and ‘Oh my god I have feelings for her!’ gets a little tiring after a while because it stretches on for so long. Avery also takes forever to tell Jillian how he feels.
I didn’t like this book as much as A Spoonful Of Sugar, the only thing I found good about it was the love affair between the cats. The characters just seemed too stressed about their feelings that the romance is hardly there even the bake off is pushed in the back so far that I had almost forgotten about it. Also can we talk about the cover for this one. It’s cute don’t get me wrong but that man does not look like a cowboy…. just sayin.
Over all the book wasn’t the greatest and if you can get this one for free and are a fan of clean/small town romances. ( this one had no sex at all) it might be for you. But for me it would not be worth the $2.99 because it just fell flat all around.
