The door next to me swings open, and a giant of lean muscle, scruffy cheeks, and deep dark brown scowling eyes steps out into the hallway, startling me.
With a really unladylike gasp, I stumble backward until my back hits the doorjamb. “Oh, I’m so sorry,” I squeak. “You scared me. Welcome. Kent emailed me that he’d sublet his place for a couple of months, though he didn’t tell me anything about you. Not that he needed to, I mean, it’s none of my business, really. I’m Lyla Dupree, it’s lovely to meet you.” I thrust my hand out to shake, but he just stares, so I let it fall back to my side.
I’m rambling, and I can’t seem to stop. It’s my thing when I’m nervous, but my roommate Sasha tells me it comes off as bubbly and kind of sweet. From the look on this guy’s face, though, I wonder if she’s just been blowing sunshine up my butt because he looks pissed. And that just makes me even more nervous, so the bubbly word vomit continues.
“You picked an amazing place to live while you’re here in the city. Where are you from? Somewhere out west, maybe? I mean, not that I know. I already told you that, so it’s just a guess, but with the flannel and the beanie…” Dear Jesus, now would be a perfect time for me to shut up. “Anyway, I just finished testing a new recipe, I’m a chef. I don’t know if Kent mentioned that when you talked about the sublet, but he should have. I mean, I do pastries, and my roommate Sasha does more of the real food. Oh my God, she makes the best mac and cheese, truly she’s amazing. Kent said it was a good thing he had to leave for this temporary assignment in London. Something about gaining weight if he lived next to us for too much longer. I don’t know, though, I think something might have happened between him and Sasha, you know? They both kind of started acting funny and then the next thing I know he’s taking a job in England for a year. But, whatever. Do you like sweets? Cakes, cookies, pastries? Any food allergies I should know about?”
And, cue uncomfortable silence.
BlueSeal’s Review of Sweet On You by KC Enders
KC Enders has joined 425 Madison for the second season with Sweet On You. Sweet On You is the 13th book in the 425 Madison Series and I have to say…it is not one that you will want to miss. Grab your coffee and a chocolate croissant or a tumbler of bourbon and let’s chat about Sweet On You by KC Enders.
He is a grumpy engineer who is in New York to fix a job that someone else messed up. She owns a fussy pastry shop in New York and has never met a stranger. He can only breathe in the mountains with their wide-open spaces. She followed a boy east but has made New York her home. She makes sinfully delicious chocolate croissants and he has a love-hate (mostly love based on the groans that come out of him) relationship with that sugary sh*t. He wears flannel, perfectly filled-out jeans, a beanie, and a scruffy beard which reminds her of the real men back home not the hipster, artsy wannabes. He reminds her of home – Colorado, a place she doesn’t want to go back to. His son is in Colorado and he can’t wait to get home. Together, they make sense at least for as long as he is in New York.
Layla and Raleigh are beautifully developed characters. Raleigh is my current book boyfriend that I am willing to share with you for a short time but you have to give him back because he is a keeper. Layle is a hilarious character who gets word vomit when she is nervous and you never know what is going to come out of her mouth. I think that I mentioned a kid. Raleigh has a son, Matty who steals the show.
This is one of my favorite stories in the 425 Madison series. I know. I know. I say that a lot but it is because they are all so good. I mean have you read them? If not, why are you waiting?
My rating of Sweet On You by KC Enders….5 out of 5 propellers!

proud to say can cook and clean up after themselves, and always open doors for the ladies (you’re welcome, world).
And when life gets a little too calm, she tends to adopt big old rescue dogs: short on brains, large on personality.
