I finished this in 2 sittings-and only because I wasn't going to stay up until the small hours already sleep-deprived. I'm an adult dammit.

She shifted uncomfortably, trying to work out if she had, in fact, let Amelie define her. And if letting something define you was different from it being the most important thing in your world. And if it mattered?
(SO Much this)


so I had seen many a review on this and silently adjusted my expectations for one of my favorite authors to 'basement-level' and quietly left this print copy I got on release day untouched until yesterday. AND THEN, I thought "I am going to read this first b/c I know Mhairi will not disappoint." Note how I expected to be disappointed? I also expected a heavier than normal main character arc than romance arc, and you know what? Maybe it was the reviews I read, but I kind of disagree.

Yes, the main character arc is heavier than some romances, absolutely. yeah, maybe it goes right up to the line into fiction instead. However, whether it was because I was kind of expecting it, or because I've read Hall too many times not to notice the way he messes with tropes and romance convention, but I'm just not convinced that I still wouldn't put the romance smack dab in the middle of this book. It's an anchor, it's a critical piece central to Rosaline's self-acceptance and frankly, it's swoony as shit in the best way.. It's who I expected, how I expected, and what I expected as a Hall devotee. (view spoiler)Where a structure like this on my best of days would bother me because I'm a stickler, the things in this book were essential building blocks on Rosaline's journey.

Or maybe it was the company. Being with someone every who'd seen her house and met her kid and knew what her life was like. Someone who seemed to care about who she was. Not who she should have been.

So much to love here, the flaws and the humor, the entire cast of characters, I just-I guess- I had so much fun spending the weekends with the contestants. And yeah, wouldn't have been mad at 500 more pages. ( )

I'm a huge fan of Alexis Hall, but I found this one different in a lot of ways from his other romances, but in a good way. Rosaline drove me crazy for a good part of the book with her inability to live her own life. For all her disdain for people who questioned her sexuality, she still projects the snobbishness and class superiority of her parents. So, her choice of architect Alain over good guy Harry because he's the guy her parents would like was annoying. Also, she's fairly oblivious to Alain's machinations for a smart woman. But that's what makes it a good story, too when she finally has that 'AHA' moment.
So the baking competition scenes are just hysterical. When an author's writing makes me laugh out loud, I (and everyone around me) knows the book is great. This one made me laugh too many times to count. I'm glad the next book will also feature the judges and behind-the-scenes people from Bake Expectations because they are a hoot! It'll definitely be on my pre-order list. ( )
