When baker extraordinaire Leilani Trusdale left the bustle of New York City for Georgia's sleepy Sugarberry Island, she didn't expect her past to follow. Yet suddenly, her former boss, Baxter Dunne, aka Chef Hot Cakes, the man who taught her everything pastry, wants to film his hit cooking show in her tiny cupcakery.

Lani's friends are convinced that this time around, Baxter is the missing ingredient in her recipe for happiness. But convincing Lani will be a job for Baxter himself. And he'll need more than black velvet frosting to sweeten the deal. . . "Donna Kauffman writes smart and sexy, with sizzle to spare!"--Janet Evanovich "Deliciously sexy!"

"Leilani Trusdale spends 10 years training with charming but tough chef Baxter "Hot Cakes' Dunne, taking over his New York City pastry shop when he leaves to host a cooking show. When she finally escapes the city to open a cupcake shop in her father's tiny hometown of Sugarberry Island, Ga., Baxter turns up, natch, to start his show's traveling season, with a secondary agenda of romancing Leilani. The tension leads Leilani to revive her old bake therapy sessions with her best friend, Charlotte, adding Leilani's quiet new assistant and a lovable town gossip to lend support, share opinions, and add sugar as members of the Cupcake Club.

But there's so much more to the story. Kauffman's book chronicles profound character growth and offers layer upon layer of authentic, life-changing conflict. ... it's a good thing Sugar Rush is only the first in a series, because the residents of Sugarberry -- especially the delightfully oddball members of the Cupcake Club -- will lure you back to their island again and again."---- Kathy Altman, USA Today/Happily Ever After"Fans of cupcakes and TV chefs will like this first installment of the Cupcake Club back-to-back romance series that comes with recipes. For those looking for more, not to worry -- this isn't a light, spun-sugar tale. It has more substance, like a rich chocolate ganaches." -- 4 Stars, Joyce Morgan, RT Book Reviews"It's like blending the Food Network together with CONFESSIONS OF A SHOPAHOLIC. . ."--(4 Hearts!) Megan, Book Brat Reviews"Kauffman writes crisp, emotionally charged dialogue ... Sugar Rush is a sweet, delicious romance fortified with mouth-watering cupcake recipes." --Kathleen Gerard, blogger at Reading Between the Lines,"SUGAR RUSH is a quirky." --Patti Fischer, Romance Reviews Today.

A nice little sweet cupcake of a book. So glad the main couple was adult enough to talk and try to solve their problems without any fights and such. Charlotte was awesome as a friend.

Halfway through this book and so far not impressed. More like a Harlequin romance novel and just keeps repeating the same thing , just spoken in different ways. I usually finish a book I have started, but not so sure about this one.
