Publisher's Summary

A hot, funny brother’s best friend rom-com...with sugar on top!

She's his best friend's little sister. He's known her all his life. He's practically part of the family. 

There is nothing either of them could do to surprise the other at this point. Then, she showed up in his bedroom in lingerie and asked him to take her V-card.

Okay, that was a surprise.

Aiden is pretty sure Zoe was equally surprised when he told her no.

To say that he didn't handle it well would be a massive understatement. Almost as massive as the amount of work he's going to have to do now to convince her that he wants her. Forever. 

Right after he tells her that he's bought the company that's her bakery’s biggest competitor. 

Maybe, if he tells her he’s in love with her first, that will help sugarcoat the whole we're-rivals-in-business-now thing. So, first "I'm in love with you", then "take off your clothes", then "I'm now your business adversary".

Sure. Piece of cake.

Loved story & narration

I loved this small town romance story written by author Erin Nicholas. She did a great job as always with her storytelling and I love the characters she develops. I really enjoyed Aiden and Zoey and their history together. I loved the witty dialogue, humor and their sexy times that include food. I loved Aiden’s dirty talk, Zoey’s sassiness and the friendships throughout this book. Narrators Jason Clarke and Lili Valente did a wonderful job with their performances and brought the characters and story to life.

A tad predictable but still a fantastic story!

I love the bits of comedy thrown in when not expected! The story was great, a bit too slow of a burn than I typically go for, but Erin Nicholas still hits you with the super sexy stuff at random times to spice it up.
Jason Clarke and Lili Vanlente: freaking TOP NOTCH.

The only downside is that the conflict/climax of the story is a bit predictable once you hit the 3rd chapter. Also, this may just be me, but the family of the heroine makes me wanna pound on them a little bit. If you buy this book or listen, you’ll understand. Lol. Those are the only reasons why this isn’t a fiver!
Happy reading/listening!

Eh..

Well the good news is, Jason Clarke was great, as usual. I’m not a Lili Valente fan, so... The story was, okay. Nothing special. Sucked me in but left me wondering why I bothered to finish it.

Sweet & Yummy!

Jason and Lili make the magic happen! They are my favorite audio duo! I can never get tired of listening to these two.

Sugarcoated is a mix and sweet and sour...the perfect blend! Zoe and Aiden are cute and I knew they were kismet. This story gave me exactly what I needed. Light hearted and romance wrapped together. There is a sprinkle of drama and a few tumbles along the way. But that makes a great recipe for a fun story to read!

Funny, Heartfelt & Swoon Worthy

I loved this book and I thought it was the perfect way to start this new series. This brother's best friend romance had no trouble at all in capturing and holding my attention. Aiden and Zoe were wonderful characters and quickly have you fully invested in them, their relationship, their friends and family and their quirky little town. I found myself really feeling for these two as their impulsive decisions, misunderstandings, embarrassments and hurt feelings cause plenty of complications for them on the road to a HEA. The well crafted combination of heartfelt emotions, small town charm, steamy heat, tension, laugh out loud humor and drama will have you totally falling in love with this book/series and craving much more of it.

Just ok, Narration saves it.

I had high hopes for this, but when you keep checking out for entire chapters that’s not a good sign. I think cause this is the first book in this series there was a lot of details that I didn’t need to know right now. I’m not continuing the series. I was ok with our couple, happy they work it out. Just didn’t seem the couple was the focus.
Now Jason Clarke & Lili Valente was amazing. They saved it for me. Plus Jason saying “I Love You” in his deep sexy voice was my fave!

Awesome start to a new series!

I adore Erin Nicholas books. When I found out she was publishing a new series I was so excited! Aiden and Zoe were absolute perfection! The narrators really made this story come to life! I can't wait for more of the Hot Cakes crew!!!

Rivals no more?

I loved this story in print but to hear it was so much more! Aiden and Zoe have known each other forever since he is her older brothers best friend. But as they grew older things changed and Aiden realized that Zoe is so much more too. I loved how Aiden goes all in with Zoe. I loved how Zoe puts herself out there too.

Great book

I have been looking forward to this series and this book didn’t disappoint. Zoe and Aiden grew up together since he is her brother’s best friend and essentially a part of her family. At some point they started to look at each other as more than friends. Aiden moves back to their small town, where Zoe runs a bakery, and is all in to get Zoe. The main issue between them...him and his partners bought Hot Cakes, the company that has been part of the family feud for 2 generations. This was a fun book and am looking forward to reading more books in this series.

Perfect narrators for this sweet sexy story

This book has the perfect blend of sweet and sexy with only a small bit of angst. Aidan and Zoe’s love story has all the feels. It’s the classic brother’s best friend story with a bunch of extras thrown in to make it so much more - small town, cute successful family bakery, a previous no to Zoe’s request for Aidan to take her v-card, Aidan’s purchase of the business owned by Zoe’s family’s sworn enemies/family recipe stealers, and so many delays by Aidan to tell Zoe the second reason he has returned to their hometown. Sprinkled throughout this beautifully paced story of Aidan and Zoe’s HEA, there are also a number of secondary characters introduced in this first book of this new series. Rather than being overwhelming or detracting from the main love story, these characters are central to the unfurling of Aidan and Zoe’s dance of love and passion. We learn enough about who the secondary characters are along with just enough of their stories so that they’re fully developed characters in their own right and definitely make me excited to hear what happens next for Hot Cakes and in the town of Appleby. With Sugarcoated, Erin Nicholas once again proves she’s a fantastic storyteller and Jason Clarke and Lili Valente bring Aidan and Zoe wonderfully to life. And I may never look at a cream filled cupcake the same again.

Fantastic

This is such a fantastic book, I loved the second chance aspect of it and add in the best friends little sister aspect and this is like my catnip. Strong characters, which leap off the page with their individuality and personality. This story has plenty of chemistry and kept me entertained and definitely desperate for the next one.

Such amazing narration as well, there was clear distinction between the characters which added a wonderful layer to the story.

Book 1

Second chance romance.
I really enjoyed this book. The story and characters are great! I like when the epilogue gets you ready for the next book in the series and I believe that’s what just happened here. Aiden is Zoe’s brothers best friend. Old family feud is stopping things from progressing. The narration was great! I definitely recommend this book.
