Lucy Sweet is a baking blogger living in Brooklyn, where the rent is high and she needs a roommate. Her brother’s best friend, Connor Pratt, has moved to New York to get over a break-up. He decides to move into Lucy’s extra room.
Lucy and Connor make a bet to get over their break-ups doing it the other person’s way. So a girls way is to eat ice cream, watch romantic comedies and drink wine. A guys way is to immediately get back out there and watch porn. This part of the book was actually kind of funny.
Their relationship blooms slowly, mostly due to Lucy’s insecurities and daddy issues. Her dad abandoned their family when she was young and she’s convinced that being with a good looking guy like Connor will end poorly for her. This part of the book drove me nuts.
One thing I really enjoyed about this book was Lucy’s ability to equate everything to baking. And ingredients. It was really cute and endearing.
I really liked Connor. He was such a sweet guy and he was very good for Lucy. I liked Lucy as well, but her insecurities got a little old after a while. Her group of friends were quite funny, and I enjoyed them. I hope the next book is about her friend Tess or her brother Kyle, because I would read both of those.
I would recommend this book. It was fun and sweet.
