Publisher's Summary

A Cinderella story with a hot boss so charming even a fairy godmother couldn't do better. 

Everyone thinks Dax Marshall is a prince of a guy. And he’s definitely charming.

But Jane has enough going on without adding a torrid fling with the boss to her life. Between her father’s illness, her wicked-ish stepmother, her little sister’s teenage drama, and the coworkers who depend on her - she can’t handle another mess. No matter how tempting and gorgeous the mess may be. Or how messy he wants to get with her.

Dax has spent his life being very serious about only one thing: proving you can be successful while still having a helluva good time. But he’s just met the one woman who might break his I-can-charm-anyone streak.

She’s actually taking him seriously, and she seriously thinks they have nothing in common and can’t be together.

Maybe, he’s the one who needs a new view of happily ever after. It’s time to stop forking around.

Charming and Sweet

I love this series so much!! Forking Around was about Jane and Dax and it was so charming and sweet. These two were smitten with each other from the moment they meet, Jane is fiesty and independent and will do anything for her family. She has so many balls in the air that she barely has time to breath. Dax is such an adorable goofball who is extremely invovative and cares so much about his friends. He is on a mission to make Jane his and to make her life easier. These two steam up the pages and will make you look at strawberry pie in a wholly different light.

I absolutely love the narration of Jason Clarke and Lili Valente. They seem to fit whatever characters they are bringing to life and this is no exception. They are a perfect duo that I never tire of listening, too.

I highly recommend Forking Around and all of the other books in the Hot Cakes Series. Each one is a delightful story full of heat and laughs.

An absolute gem

This is a fantastic follow up to Sugarcoated! I absolutely love the idea of a small town girl and a millionaire CEO bonding over cake pops, lol. There is something genuine and lovable about Dax that makes him an irresistible character. I can’t wait to listen to more books in this series.

Absolutely Wonderful!!

This is the second book in this absolutely delightful series. This book is a wonderful mash-up of fairytale and workplace romance. Jane and Dax's story is filled with tons of charm, sweetness, humor, heart and heat. This is the type of romance that is simply beautiful, powerfully moving and deeply heartwarming. It is impossibly easy to get swept up into this tale about life and love. I adored Dax and Jane. So different and yet they fit perfectly together and their chemistry and banter were top-notch. This book features dual narration and that is something I always appreciate. I thought the narration was extremely well done and I felt the narrator's voices fit the characters really well.

Could any two people be more different?

Forking Around by Erin Nicholas is a romantic comedy with some serious moments encompassed within the fun. Dax Marshall is one of the new owners of Hot Cakes. He is one of the fun ones, along with Ollie. Grant has his bottle of Tylenol labeled "Dax." At the new ownership announcement party he had met a girl. She had red hair, a killer body, and loved cake pops. She didn't hesitate to admit it. She wouldn't tell him her name, though. Not that that was a big deal in Appleby. The next day he had a bouquet of red velvet cake pops delivered to her at work. He really liked her. At the same time, he was busy making things better for the employees at Hot Cakes: a cappuccino machine, a ping pong table, a big screen TV, all in the employee's lounge. He wanted Jane and made no secret of it. She wanted him right back, but he was her boss. AND she was too busy for men; her life was too complicated.

This is a great book. It has it all: spoiled teens, spoiled adults, a disable person, a nursing home, people falling in love, friendships. It also has comic relief in the person of Max, Jane's best friend and unabashedly gay. He's always right there drooling over Dax or pestering Jane for details. He's great. It didn't surprise Jane that she was in love. It did surprise her that Dax was. He seemed more of a fling guy. He bought the nursing home, but he had a short attention span. These were people's lives and Jane was worried. Dax's friends jumped in. No doubt about it. The relationships between these five guys are worth the price of the book. You knew it was going to work out; that there would be a happily-ever-after. It was the charm of the journey that captured my attention and kept me reading. What a terrific, feel-good novel. Congratulations, Erin Nicholas!
The narration through Audible did the author proud. Rather than reading characters the male and female readers, Jason Clarke and Lili Valente alternated chapters. It was a good approach and was so natural that I didn't notice fore several chapters. They were comfortable and low-key, letting the words speak for themselves. It was the perfect listen for days at the gum. I recommend it.

I was invited to listen to a free ARC on Audible by the author. All opinions and thoughts are my own.

Strawberry Sweetness

Dax and Jane are really cute. He's a millionaire and Jane's boss at Hot Cakes. They meet when she's eating cake pops and won't share. Jane is attracted to Dax but doesn't want to date her boss. He makes a grand gesture so she will feel comfortable dating him. Jane takes care of everyone else and feels overwhelmed. Dax trues to lighten her load. He's taking their relationship seriously when he hasn't ever done that before. He just needs to convince Jane that he's not fooling around. I love this series! Jason Clarke and Lili Valente are great as Dax and Jane.

Hot & Sweet

Another sweet (but not overly so) book in the Hot Cakes series. Not only was this book hot, but it totally woke up my sweet tooth. Jane is this strong, independent woman who is carrying so much stress and pressure around with her. This was relatable to me in certain ways, especially her struggles with a family member’s health. And she does her best to help everyone without asking for anyone’s help in return.

Enter Dax. At first glance, Dax is a light-hearted goofball. But deep down, he is always doing his best to help people. To make them happy. And he is also super friendly, whether it’s bantering with Jane’s friend Max, dealing with catty teenagers, or working with seniors at a nursing home, Dax is always kind and respectful. And he treats everyone with dignity. He may come off as immature, but he loves hard. He give the term “hero” new meaning.

I enjoyed every second of this book. And the narrators really brought the characters to life, as they always do. I highly recommend this series so far.

Strawberries and cake pops with a bit of romance.

I just love Forking Around. I love every aspect. Erin Nicholas has written a phenomenal story. I felt a variety of emotions. I was busy so I played this book on my Audible. I really enjoyed being able to listen to Forking Around while running my errands and cooking. I was able to follow along with the narrator. The narrator spoke very clearly. Listening to the narrator read the book made me feel as if I was sitting around with a friend and chatting. I felt as if I were there in Appleby. Listening to the narrator read Forking Around felt like I was reading the story.

In Forking around we get Dax and Jane's story. Jane is my type of person. She is so down to earth. Can I just say I love Strawberries. His theory is you can have both. Jane and Dax really do compliment each other. I love the chemistry they have.

Erin Nicholas captivated me from the beginning. I love the Hotcakes series. I could smell all the yummy deliciousness and I could taste the cake pops. No matter what your doing grab some Strawberries or something sweet and listen to Forking Around. It's honestly just like reading it. Once you enter Appleby you won't want to leave.

Wow

I loved the first book in the series, there was so much that I have to love in it and book 2 did not disappoint. Again characters that jump off the page at you and incredible chemistry between the two. The humour of this series is just the icing on the cake. Between excellent storytelling and narration this was a pleasure to listen to.

Book 2

I am loving this series! Dax is so over the top extravagant and Jane has so many responsibilities with no time for ridiculousness. It was fun watching these two interact. I love the characters and all their friendships. The narration was great. I have heard Jason Clarke in other audiobooks and really enjoy his voice. I totally recommend this book.
