This was just a ton of fun. I loved it so much! Violet is a great driven character, willing to work her butt off to get where she wants to be. She isn't going to let anyone get in her way. But, as smart and intelligent as she is, she has a few big moments that just made me shake my head. I just didn't believe that she wouldn't ask for help - or at least be honest about what she was going through. It didn't really fit with her character.

After heartbreak threw her years off track, Violet Young is finally making her dreams come true. She’s just landed a sweet position with Wynne’s Kitchen, New York City’s world-renowned bakery at Rockefeller Center.
Ben Preston rose to greatness as a general manager at one of the finest dining establishments in the Big Apple only to fall from grace when life dealt him a rough hand and his wife left him. A phone call from the hiring manager at Wynne’s Kitchen is the catalyst he needs to start over.
Sparks fly when Violet is asked to train her new boss, who stands between her and the next promotion she needs. Worse still, she and Ben must fight not to fall in love … because there’s a fine line between a delicious affair and dipping your pen in the company ink. Will Ben and Violet turn up the heat or do their careers take the cake?
Ben was another great character. Thrown together with Violet in a famous bakery, he quickly finds himself in over his head. Not just with the inner workings of the bakery, but with the cute production manager that he can't stop thinking about.
There are a few big conflicts and a few little ones. Both have major (and I mean major) ex issues that just keep popping up at the worst time. Violet's was especially creepy. Plus, they work together, and dating a co-worker is a big no-no.
They manage to navigate the waters in a fun and exciting way that really kept me turning the pages. I will have to check out more from this author.
