Publisher's Summary

This marriage of convenience is about to get sticky.

Getting hitched for the health insurance is not Jocelyn Asher's idea of romance.

But the hospital quote has really frosted her cookies, and suddenly, "I'm rich. We should just get married", sounds a whole lot more swoony.

Especially when the man proposing is this gorgeous. And takes her to parties featuring champagne and petit fours. She's a sucker for anything with bubbles or icing. And just like that she finds herself married to a near stranger.

Grant Lorre is usually allergic to spontaneity.

So why did he ask the beautiful small-town baker he had a one-night stand with to marry him? Somehow watching her lick batter off a whisk - not a euphemism - made a wedding and a little fraud seem like a sweet idea.

They'll just play house and make some whoopie - pies, of course - for a few months and then move on with their separate lives. Until then, bring on the cream filling. And that is a euphemism.

But as things heat up even outside of the kitchen, they quickly realize there's no recipe to follow when it comes to love.

Steamy small town romcom

I absolutely loved this book and the small town that Erin has created. Grant and Josie have become my favorite my favorite couple in this series. Grant is the broody city guy and Josie is happy and lovable and loves her small hometown. When Josie needs help Grant steps in and helps her by offering to marry her. The chemistry between these two is explosive. It’s hard not to fall in love with these characters. Jason Clarke and Lili Valente were perfect for these characters and loved every moment of their narration. This was a must read/listen if you love small town romcoms.

Wonderful audio version of this sweet sexy romance

This is my favorite book in this series so far. Josie and Grant’s love story has all the feels. It has the perfect blend of sweet romance, silly moments, and fan your face sexy with a side helping of difficult real life issues. Josie has a pressing medical issue and needs health insurance. Grant has great health insurance and an overwhelming need to take care of women making it a classic marriage of convenience trope. There are a bunch of extras thrown in to this classic storyline to make it so much more - sweet close-knit small town, budding relationship instead of strangers, super romantic wedding night, secret marriage, food as an aphrodisiac, secret medical issues, and the push/pull of need versus independence. I loved that Josie was her own person and is never going to be content being “taken care of” even if financially Grant could easily afford to. I also loved that Grant did not want a woman to need him but could not fight his need to take care of Josie. On their way to their HEA, Josie and Grant find there is so much more to their relationship than a business transaction and you just cannot fight true love. Like the other books in this series, Making Whoopie includes a number of secondary characters interwoven throughout the story - some we’ve met in previous books and others are new. Rather than being overwhelming or detracting from the main love story, these characters are central to Josie and Grant’s love story and to the heart of what makes small town Appleby, Iowa and the people who live there so wonderful. I am excited to hear what happens next for Hot Cakes and rest of the town. With Making Whoopie, Erin Nicholas once again proves she’s a phenomenal storyteller who creates towns we all want to live in and Jason Clarke and Lili Valente bring those characters to life with their perfect voices.

Hot Cakes Series

Making Whoopie (Hot Cakes, Book 3) is a luscious story with an arranged marriage twist. I love the characters, storyline and the baking aspects of the story. I lovely hea. Narators Jason Clarke, Lili Valente are the icing on the cake. I absolutely love this dual naration. Jason Clarke's deep baritone inflection is intoxicating. He becomes the character in the role he is portraying. Lili Valente captures your mind with her sweet tone. Her ability to become the character brings vivid images to your mind.

Terrific story

I loved this story in the Hot Cake series by author Erin Nicholas. Her small town romance books are always so much fun and I enjoy the friendships, witty dialogue, humor and food references. Jason Clarke and Lili Valente did a terrific job with their narration and brought the story and characters to life. I really enjoyed their performances of Grant and Josie who are the main couple in this book and their narration captured the feelings this couple had for each other as I listened. I would definitely recommend this audiobook.

Fantastic

And to think I thought the first two were the best of this series. I was sorely mistaken because the author decided to throw in a really well done marriage of convenience with more chemistry than should be allowed in one book. I loved this and I have my fingers and toes crossed for another book. Especially with these narrators as they just add that last amazing layer to how much I love this series

Book 3

Opposites attract Oh my! This is my favorite book of the series so far. There are more books to come in this series though (wink wink) The characters are great. They have great friendships and families. Grant and Jocelyn got together quickly but it ended up being for convenience. Not a lot of angst. HEA. I love the narration. I love this series. I definitely recommend these books! 🎧Audiobook Obsession
