_ Then ... Then she gave me a real smile - White teeth , Pink lips , Tiny dimple on the right side - and I never .. Ever got my heart back _WOW ! Did I just Read all this Perfection ??!!

When I read the news of The Smarty Pants Romance new books from Penny Reid Newsletter, I was really skeptical , Green Valley Fictional World IS so dear and special to my heart , I just Couldn’t imagine how multiple writers other than Penny Reid could write stories from this fantastic world , I mean , Nothing good could get out from that !!

Ohhhhh Myyyyyy ! I was SO FREAKING WRONG! Baking me crazy was perfection, reading this book was like meeting a stranger but having the feeling that You know this stranger, that he isn’t stranger at all !!

This story took place within the same Green Valley community, that I already love, yes, the characters were all new ( Except for the Winstons – Especially Cletus and Jennifer – ) , But when I started reading I didn’t feel as if I’m starting a new book , EVERYTHING WAS FAMILIAR , and I don’t know why !!! ? as this could be read as a standalone novel .

Best Friends to lovers Trope isn’t new to the Romance Genre , BUT Karla Sorensen In Baking Me Crazy made me fall in love AGAIN with this trope .

Ahhhhh, Levi is one of the best heroes I’ve EVER read about, I already love the name Levi, and in this story, he was sweet, charming, funny, loving, adorable, hot ……. I can keep talking about him FOREVER ….. What I liked the most about him , his compassion and love for Joss how he was understanding, considerate and careful with her feelings , how he sacrificed a lot of chances to be with her, just waiting for THE RIGHT TIME, the time when she is ready to accept him as more than just her best friend , but While All that she needed is A friend < he was that For her .. While-Reading the first chapters, My heart broke, every time he gazed lovingly at Joss while she wasn’t looking at him, every time he described the color of her eyes, Every time he was proud of her for her courage and hard work …

_ Then ... Then she gave me a real smile - White teeth , Pink lips , Tiny dimple on the right side - and I never .. kkkgot my heart back _AHHHHH ! I JUST LOVE HIM SO MUCH ❤ ❤ ❤

Joss was a brilliant character, ( in most Romance novels, there is kind of standers for the characters: they should be perfect, beautiful, hot, confident ….. ) BUTTT The amazing Karla Sorensen changed all the rules, as our Levi wasn’t arrogant and brooding, Our Joss was Badass, Awesome, Sassy, funny and with a disability that made her MORE AMAZING…

Sorensen in this Romantic – Comedy , was able to spread awareness and educate others in many topics Regarding People with disabilities , she described the struggles that Joss had to face since she started using the Wheelchair, with herself to start with, with the society and how others started to view her, ending up with her dating life …. It was amazing and heartbreaking at the same time to read about Joss experience and story, I ADMIRED her so much, in some scenes, I found myself angry for This Incredible Woman.

Levi and Joss Love story was so sweet, romantic, amazing and really admirable. I loved every single part of this novel

For Karla Sorensen writing style, it was Brilliant, Her words were sooooooo beautiful. Definitely, a New favorite Author.



20190718_DB01_Baking Me Crazy_Sorensen_KDP_FINALBlurb :

I’m Levi Buchanan, and until five years ago, I thought the legend of my family’s curse was a load of crazy, Southern nonsense.

No curse can make you fall in love at first sight. No curse can force a true, deep, passionate, all-consuming love that will haunt you all the days of your life.

Then I met Jocelyn Abernathy and I realized how completely wrong I was.

The problem is, Jocelyn guards her feelings like well-armed soldier. She’s the most beautiful, stubborn, infuriating woman I’ve ever met. Every time she talks, I want to kiss the living daylights out of her. But I can’t.

Because when we met, she didn’t need true love. She needed a best friend. And that’s what I’ve been to her… for five years.

But when Jocelyn meets a handsome stranger her first day working at Donner Bakery and she lets him buy her a dill pickle cupcake, I realize with ominous regret that I may have missed my window with my best friend.

If I can’t get her to see past our friendship, my new curse may be to watch the love of my life move on with someone else.

‘Baking Me Crazy’ is a full-length contemporary romantic comedy, can be read as a standalone, and is book#1 in the Donner Bakery series, Green Valley World, Penny Reid Book Universe.

Karla Sorensen has been an avid reader her entire life, preferring stories with a happily-ever-after over just about any other kind. And considering she has an entire line item in her budget for books, she realized it might just be cheaper to write her own stories. It doesn’t take much to keep her happy…a book, a really big glass of wine, and at least thirty minutes of complete silence every day. She still keeps her toes in the world of health care marketing, where she made her living pre-babies. Now she stays home, writing and mommy-ing full time (this translates to almost every day being a ‘pajama day’ at the Sorensen household…don’t judge). She lives in West Michigan with her husband, two exceptionally adorable sons and big, shaggy rescue dog.

Excerpt : 

“Besides, this is my best friend perk. Shouldn’t I get perks in baked goods?”

She cut me a look. “You’ve been getting those perks for two years, Buchanan. Don’t even pretend you didn’t put on a solid ten pounds that first year I started baking.” Quite pointedly, she looked at my stomach, which we both knew was covered in muscle.

“That’s rude,” I mumbled under my breath. I flexed my bicep. Nero licked my elbow since it was right in front of him. “Yeah, ten pounds in my left arm maybe.”

The noise she made roughly translated to you are ridiculous. She made that sound at me a lot. Of course, the sad truth of the matter was that I was ridiculous.

Not once in the past five years had my feelings lessened for her. I had just learned to live with them. In my junior year of undergrad, I was taking a class on brain pathology in injuries, and a man came to talk to us about how he learned to live without his right arm after it was amputated.

He told us about how, even years after he lost his arm, his brain still triggered sensations to the limb that was no longer there. The adult brain, in particular, struggled to reorganize after the loss of a limb, and given that four out of five amputees suffer from phantom pain symptoms, some of which were incredibly debilitating, it was a lesson that stuck with me.

I wasn’t fool enough to think that me loving Jocelyn was on par with a man who’d lost his arm, but something about the way he talked plucked at a chord inside me. Sometimes my brain struggled to remember that we were just friends.

She’d never dated, never even hinted that she wanted to. She’d never given me a longing glance. Never stared at my mouth like she wondered what it tasted like.

But my hands never, not once, stopped wanting to reach for hers. My fingers always, always itched to dig into her crazy hair and see what the curve of her scalp felt like.

My brain knew what this relationship was, but sometimes, the signals it sent to the rest of my body didn’t always match up with the truth of our situation. We worked out together a lot, Joss and I, and when she got frustrated with the limitations of her body, I always wanted to wrap my arms around her.

I wanted to pull her into the curve of my body, absorb her dissatisfaction into my skin, and carry it for her. That was the irony when she made noises like that.

She had absolutely no clue how ridiculous I really was.

Until Next Time ,

Stay Strong And Change the world ,

Lana ❤
