The boy who ruined her reputation and crashed his future, before ghosting her when she needed him most.
Isla Fraser, Cook and Divorced Mom
High school sweetheart.

The Chef and the Cook.
Paired on a Reality TV Bake-Off, their chemistry still smokes. But when Isla confesses the secret she’s kept from him, will Connor burn their second chance?
There’ll be a bonus Christmas chapter for readers who sign onto my newsletter. I’m also writing a cookbook featuring some of the bakes from the book. That will be for newsletter subscribers, too.
If you’re addicted to food competition shows like me, you’re going to love this second-chance romance. This couple burns for each other…whether passion or hate, you choose.
From the first page, I got sucked into this drama-filled romance. Emotions run high and I loved every agonizing moment. Passion simmers barely beneath the surface but once ignited, you better get the fire extinguisher.
The characters are so vibrant, so emotional, they leap from the page and burrow their way into your heart. The stakes couldn’t be higher for this couple, and I kept rooting them on. I can’t decide which one I loved more, which one I connected with better, so I’m saying it’s a tie.
The writing is what makes this romance unputdownable. The descriptive narration is so detailed, you’ll drool over the food, cooking, romance, and more. The author writes with authority so I’m pretty sure she’s been in the culinary industry at some point. The writing is flawless, authentic, and full of emotion.
Twice Baked in an addictive romance and will satisfy your cravings. Read this juicy second-chance romance and see why it’s the best book I’ve read this year.
