Baked Fresh by Annabeth Albert

Annabeth Albert brings us another fun read about Vic Degrassi a baker on the rise in Portland. Vic goes after what he wants—and gets it whether it's losing weight, giving up smoking, or graduating from culinary school. Vic decides he wants Robin Dawson, the sweet-hearted hottie who volunteers with him at the local homeless shelter. When he learns that Robin is suddenly single after being unceremoniously dumped, Vic is more than happy to offer a shoulder to cry on—or at least a fresh-baked pastry to bite into. But it's been a long time since Vic's gone on a date, and he's nervous about risking his friendship with Robin. So when their flirtation turns into a steamy night together, Vic and Robin have to figure out if they're friends with benefits or lovers in the making, and if Robin is ready for something more than just a rebound.

I really enjoyed this book and thought the characters were just adorable. I like the differences in Robin and Vic and how they see each other. The description of the book led me to think that Vic's New Years resolutions would play a bigger part than it did but it didn't really detract from the story. Robin's previous relationship was certainly not really healthy at all but I would have liked to hear a little more about it rather than just guessing from how he is so skittish now. I thought that Annabeth did a very good job of displaying the self image issues that many people face after losing a lot of weight like Vic did. I was super excited to see Robby and David from the previous book too. I really look forward to reading more from this author.

I was given this awesome book to give my honest review of from NetGalley!
