gg “Sugarcoated is hot, funny, and so adorably swoon-worthy, it’s sure to satisfy your sweet tooth!” – Katana Collins, author 

A hot, funny brother’s best friend rom com…with sugar on top! 

Sugarcoated - RB Banner

She’s his best friend’s little sister. He’s known her all his life. He’s practically part of the family. There is nothing either of them could do to surprise the other at this point.

Then she showed up in his bedroom in lingerie and asked him to take her V-card.

Now, that was a surprise.

Aiden is pretty sure Zoe was equally surprised when he told her no. 

To say that he didn’t handle it well would be a massive understatement. Almost as massive as the amount of work he’s going to have to do now to convince her that he wants her. Forever. 

Right after he tells her that he’s bought the company that’s her bakery’s biggest competitor. 

Maybe if he tells her he’s in love with her first, that will help sugarcoat the whole we’re-rivals-in-business-now thing. 

So, first “I’m in love with you”, then “take off your clothes”, then “I’m now your business adversary”.

Piece of cake.


BlueSeal’s Review Of Sugarcoated by Erin Nicholas

Erin Nicholas is one of my go-to authors so I was very excited about the release of her newest series – Hot Cakes!  One thing you may not know about me is that I am a cooking show junkie (i.e., Chopped, Top Chef, The Kitchen, Guy’s Grocery Games, Pioneer Woman, Buddy vs. Duff, Cutthroat Kitchen, Iron Chef America, etc… – you get the picture).  The Food Network is my guilty pleasure. When I saw that this series was about a bakery and a snack food company, I knew that it was the series for me! Erin starts the series off with the story of Zoe and her brother’s best friend, Aiden.  Grab your glass of wine and let’s chat about Erin Nicholas’ Sugarcoated.  If you have cake pops or cupcakes in the house, you might want to grab some of those as well. 


Aiden and Cam left Appleby for college and never looked back.  The best friends, who developed the biggest online video game to hit the market in a decade, now live five hours away in Chicago.  They just sold the company for millions so, why is Aiden dead set on moving back to their small hometown in Iowa? Aiden made a promise to his mother before he died.  He was going to do something important with his life, something that mattered. When the snack cake factory in Appleby when on the market, Aiden know what he was supposed to do.  It also gave him a reason to move home which is what he’s wanted to do since he discovered that he was in love with his best friend’s little sister – Zoe.


Zoe McCaffery hated two things: change and Hot Cakes. That’s why the menu at her family bakery, Buttered Up, had not changed in years.  The pie recipes were made exactly the way that her grandmother made them. The cakes and icings may look different depending on the order but they always tasted the same.  Zoe’s family had been feuding with the family who owned Hot Cakes for three generations…all of the way back to their grandmothers who founded them both 50 years ago. When Aiden walks in the door, after the humiliating Christmas situation, he brings in enough changes to complete throw Zoe for a loop.  Will she be able to embrace Aiden and the changes that he brings or will she shut him out?


I’m pretty sure that I say this every few books but, Aiden is my newest book boyfriend!  The man is just about perfect…he looks as good in jeans and a t-shirt as he does in an expensive suit.  He is smart, sensitive, determined, romantic, and just naughty enough to keep things interesting! Erin Nicholas has laid the foundation for a great series with Sugarcoated.  I can’t wait to read more. My rating of Sugarcoated by Erin Nicholas…5 out of 5 propellers!

About Erin Nicholas

Erin lives in the Midwest, where she enjoys spending time with her husband (who only wants to read the sex scenes in her books), her kids (who will never read the sex scenes in her books), and her family and friends (who claim to be “shocked” by the sex scenes in her books).
