Publisher's Summary

They call me the sugar whisperer.

Anything your tongue desires, I can bake it. Scones? Child's play. Cupcakes? I'll frost them so good you won't know what hit you. Donuts? Please!

You're talking to a master baker.

But there's one egg I've never been able to crack.

My best friend.

Correction: my former best friend.

She's the apple in my pie. The whip in my cream. The lemon in my meringue. The wish in my bone. She's the one who got away.

After ten years in the military, she's back. She's bruised and battered by life, but she's back. Except, she's not my second chance. She's gone to the dark side. Running a rival bakery in a town not big enough for two.

So, now I have to decide - which do I want more?

My bakery?

Or the woman I never should've let go in the first place?

Master Baker is a deliciously fun friends-to-enemies-to-lovers romantic comedy featuring a smooth-talking baker, the one who got away, and a goat with more matchmaking tendencies than a nosy old grandpa. It stands alone with no cheating or cliff-hangers.

talk dirty to your batter

While this isn't my top favorite by Pippa Grant, I loved it none the less! loved the dirty talk....even if it was to the batter/cookie dough. Sue was awesome and I love the crazy animals/pets in her books. definitely recommend this book for an easy read.

You just gotta love this book!

As you have come to expect from a Pippa Grant book, this one will steal your heart. In this funny, romance you will find a potty mouthed parrot, a matchmaker goat, 2 towns full of pride and attitudes, 2 families full of love and support and 1 couple who just belong together. So buy your copy, sit back in a comfy chair and get ready for love, laughter and great freinds.

Holy brownie batter sexy times!

I will never bake again without listening to Grady and Annika talk dirty to ingredients and each other. Holy brownie batter sexy times! Master Baker is all the things!! It's very sweet, often hilarious, and super hot!

Narration is expertly done by Jason and Virginia, two of my auto-buy favorites. Well worth the credit!

A fun, crazy, adorable, lovely romp!

Pippa Grant never fails to make me grin. This book is just another in SO many that have made my day with witty and silly banter. She somehow seems to make sense of the senseless and make love so lovable.

Annika and Grady are friends to enemies to lovers. With an unlikely rivalry between bakeries, but not between bakers since Annika can’t bake her way out of a wet paper bag.

I found some parts of the story a bit too lean on why Annika put so much onto her shoulders. And wondered why Grady was so all in with her, but then realized for him, it’s in his blood.

I’m also personally not into the “I love my best friend” being drilled into my head towards the end. I get it. Enough.

Still, the characters and their intertwining banter and stories is what makes this book enjoyable.

Jason Clarke’s voice was super hot. Virginia Rose had these little inflections in her narration that totally conveyed her characters emotions. I loved it all.

Fun narration

This book is a fun and flirty friends to enemies to lovers story that I absolutely could not put down. There is just something about a man who knows his way around a bakery that is very sexy;)

Banana Pudding Donuts

Master Baker is a sweet and witty lsten. It took a bit to peak my interest but then it was smooth sailing till the end. I loved the pastry / cookie dough talk and the crazed animals / pets (Sue). The ending was the icing on the cake with 3 epilogues.

Narators Jason Clarke, Virginia created a vivid portrayal of the characters. Their inflection was smooth and consistent flow through and their tone changed in the right places. These two narrators together brought the characters and narrative to reality.

Not my favorite

I have really enjoyed a lot of Pippa's books but this one was kind of disappointing. I felt like it was kind of whiny and some of the extra characters were really annoying. Listening to a whole book where everyone is repeatedly called a shithead or an asshole is not really my idea of fun. Usually I really am up for anything but I found myself just waiting for this book to be done.

Brilliant fun

I loved this book when I first read it, love it even more in this version. The pirates, the parrots, the Berger twins and the situations they're dealing with .

The narrators do a fantastic job.

live the extras at the end, dont miss them

3 1/2 - 4 stars for the story

Master Baker is a light-hearted, second chance romance with a large dose of small town rivalry added to the mix for some extra fun. The small town rivalry between Sarcasm and Shipwreck is absolutely OTT, verging on a little ridiculous at times, but at all times it makes for fun listening.

I prefer to listen to this authors books, I've read a couple and I find the humour just works so much better when I'm listening to the stories (for me the humour falls flat in ebook format)......bonus - she has some of my favourite narrators performing her works which is also a big plus.
