Sugar Rush

Neve owns a bakery called Sugar Rush that just got a whole lot of new customers after one of her employees, Corky, posts a picture of an elderly lesbian couple, Helen and Maggie, on their Facebook page. The night before a bill was lifted, the state had declared the ban on same-sex marriage unconstitutional. Neve is going to be making their wedding cake and has made it public that her business is people-friendly. Neve gets thrown for a loop when her ex, Giana comes by her bakery and claims to want her back.

Judy works at a hobby store and is trying to be a good friend and find a bakery that will do a rainbow cake for her best friend Rachael. It’s not only Rachael’s birthday but it’s the day she officially came out when she turned 18. None of the other bakeries wanted to do it but when Judy saw Neve’s post on Facebook, she figured Neve could help and hires her.

The sex scenes were well written and that was to be expected since the sexual tension between Neve and Judy practically came off the page. I enjoyed this story and it made me realize that even though the LGBTQ community still deals with bigotry it’s not as bad as it was in the past. It was really nice and I loved how much Neve enjoyed her job. She loves baking so much it might as well be a hobby for her instead of a career.

As Neve and Judy satisfy each other’s sweet tooth in the most pleasurable ways possible, feelings begin to blossom.
