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.

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.

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.

Small town romcom

I loved Dax and Jane’s story! Sweet, funny, hot small town romcom all my fave things. Their banter was one of my favorite part of the story. The narration was amazing. Lili Valente and Jason Clarke were the perfect match to bring Dax and Jane to life! This is a must listen story and series, it will leave you with a smile.

Perfectly hot and sweet

This book has the perfect blend of fairytale sweet and fan your face sexy and the narration by Jason Clarke and Lili Valente just adds to the depth of the characters. Jane and Dax’s love story has all the feels. They appear to be opposites on the surface. Dax is the fun-loving, impulsive, never serious guy and Jane has so much serious responsibility in her life that she cannot juggle one more thing. There are Cinderella elements to this story too - a wicked stepmother and step sister with Jane and her sister doing all the chores while her sick father is relegated to a nursing home plus there’s the charming fun rich boss who wants to make everyone happy with extravagant presents and makeovers. On their way to their HEA, Jane and Dax find they have more in common than they thought. They want the same things for the people in their lives they just go about it in different ways. Like the first book in this series, Forking Around includes a number of secondary characters, some we’ve met before and others are new. Rather than being overwhelming or detracting from the main love story, these characters are central to the main love story and to the heart of what makes small town Appleby, Iowa so wonderful. I am excited to hear what happens next for Hot Cakes and rest of the town. With Forking Around, Erin Nicholas once again proves she’s a fantastic storyteller. And now all things strawberry will forever make me feel like blushing.

Hot Cakes Series

Forking Around (Hot Cakes Book 2) a small town romance dredged with sweet and salty moments. Dax and Jane bond over their love for cakepops with flirty back and forth banter. Humor, romance and entertaining supporting character's ice the cake. Jason Clarke, Lili Valente dual naration was flawlessly perfect. Transitioning between different characters is smooth and feels natural. I love Jason Clarke's deep baritone inflection and could listen to him all day. Lili' sweet tone is music to the ears. Absolutely love listening to these two narrate this series. Overall, a fun listen and I look forward to listening to the next audio in this series.

Entertaining

The second book in Ms. Nicholas latest series and it was just as enjoyable as the first one. I fell hard and fast for Dax, there was just something about him that ticked all the boxes for me. He made me smile throughout the story and I couldn't wait to see if he and Jane could get the happily every after that they both deserved. The chemistry between Jane and Dax was intense and their relationship as it developed romantic. As I have come to expect from Ms. Nicholas, Forking Around was well written with characters that you cannot help but become invested in. This book was full of humour and this just added to my overall enjoyment of the book with many laugh out loud moments.   Forking Around ( I just love the titles in this series) is a great example of RomCom at it’s finest. Erin Nicholas has a way with words that quickly draws you in and keeps you captivated from the first to the last page. The narrators Jason Clarke and Lili Valente added another layer to my listening enjoyment.   It was not only the main characters that are entertaining but also the secondary ones and I am looking forward to reading/listening to more in this series which has quickly become a favourite.

Great story & narration

Once again, I devoured this story written by author Erin Nicholas who does a fantastic job writing small town romances with heart, humor and sexy times involving food. I loved how Dax and Jane first met and all the flirting these two did with each other; these two were such a sweet couple. I thoroughly enjoyed the friendships written throughout this book. Narrators Jason Clarke and Lili Valente once again did a great job bringing this story and the characters to life. They transitioned smoothly between the different characters and I found myself totally engrossed in listening to this audiobook. I cannot wait to listen to the next book in this series.

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. 🎧Audiobook Obsession
