Austen, Party of Two Paperback
A food truck owner, a restaurant critic and a charity bake-off.
Known as the One-Date Wonder, Lexi Sarmiento threw herself into her food truck pastry business after a bad relationship during culinary school. When her best friend approaches her about helping with a celebrity bake-off for charity, she can’t say no. But when she’s assigned to coach the gorgeous jerk from a speed dating event the week before, she’s ready to throw in the towel.
Fitness guru and local journalist, Brennen Peters jumps at the chance to participate in a bake-off supporting a charity that means a lot to his family. Still mourning the loss of his parents, and taking orders from the girl he scorned on a speed-date-gone-wrong, he isn't sure his nerves can handle the heat in the kitchen, especially when he doesn't know the first thing about yeast and egg wash.
But the more time he spends with Lexi, the more his expectations for love shift, and he finds himself ready to take a leap. Will their budding romance survive their past prejudice?
