Donnie Watson's baking disasters are legendary, but this Easter, his mismatched chocolate eggs bring accidental but astonishing results to four downhearted gay men. The chocolate sweets spill onto the pavement of a small parade of local shops—and go on a matchmaking tour like no other! From a bankrupt and betrayed baker, to a homeless but hopeful man, to a conceited bar owner in need of a reality check, and finally to the hapless but caring Donnie himself.
After all, Love means you can have chocolate too!
Who says 'There are no happy accidents...'
'The Accidental Baker' is the tale of how one little accident plays a role in the lives of 4...well actually 8 different men.
Starting with Donnie a sweet young man with a heart of gold who never gives a second thought to what he can do to help someone else...he just does it but when Donnie drops some of the egg shaped or mostly egg shaped eggs that he's made for the local community center children't party what he doesn't realize his chocolate creations are about to play a role in changing the future of more people than him and a few children.
I was totally enchanted with how this story played out and how each one of Donnie's chocolate creations that rolled away from him played a role in the meeting of two other men ...from something as simple as sharing a chocolate treat to causing to men to be locked in the men's room.
'The Accidental Baker' isn't a collection of romance stories but a collection of romantic beginnings. It's a collection of stories all connected by chocolate and really who doesn't like chocolate? These stories are high on sweetness and love on sex...I'm a just sayin' if you're looking of steamy graphic sex than this may not be the one for you but if you just want some sweet, promising beginnings than you've come to the right place.
And having said all that...I'd be lying if I said I didn't want the rest of the story to go with these sweet beginnings because of course I do and I've got no shame in saying that I'm hoping the author has plans to give us more story for each of these couples...one where everyone gets an HEA or even a solid HFN...one can always hope, right?
