REVIEW : Master Baker by Pippa Grant

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.

Former best friend, that is.

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?

Is baking like getting involved in BDSM? Because I don’t know much about the lifestyle, but I know I’m about to beat this cake mix until it begs for mercy.


Master Baker is the rom-com version of a Food Network show and I am completely in LOVE with this story, with Grady and Annika, Sue and the towns of Shipwreck and Sarcasm.

Grady owns a bakery in Shipwreck and is the master baker. When he finds out the bakery in Shipwreck’s rival town is opening he is angry and storms over there. What he doesn’t expect?  To see Annika Williams, the only girl he has ever cared for, the girl he compares everyone else to, the girl who left him 10 years ago.

They have loved each other for years, but when Annika comes back they are enemies. They are business rivals. Annika has no idea what she is doing and she is having to go against a master baker and someone who once was her best friend.

This story was adorable, hilarious, sweet, steamy and completely delicious. I loved the banter between Grady and Annika. Grady’s sweet talking to the food (seriously gives a whole new meaning to food porn), Annika’s lack of skills, Sue, Pops, every single resident in Shipwreck and Sarcasm, and Cooper Rock.

Grab yourself a sweet treat, put on do not disturb because this one book you will not won’t to put down.
