12 Mar 2012 Cupcake Club Romance
Riley Brown never imagined she would find her bliss on Georgia's quiet Sugarberry Island after years of Chicago's city life. With a new career and fantastic new friends, she's got it all - except for eligible men. But a gig staging a renovated beach house delivers a delicious treat - six feet of blue-eyed, gorgeous writer as delectable and Southern as pecan pie. Quinn Brannigan has come to Sugarberry to finish his latest novel in peace, and suddenly Riley has a taste for the bad boy author that no amount of mocha latte buttercream or lemon mousse will satisfy...Riley's friends are rooting for her to give in to her cravings and spice up her life, but it's Quinn who needs to learn that life's menu just might include love, in all its decadent, irresistible flavours...

4.0 out of 5 stars not that sweet 2 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Read via elibrary. Enjoyable light romance. Very pleasant read. Not a wow or great hence my 4* as I just didnt feel it did enough to warrant 5. Nothing offensive to me with story. Hot in places but not excessive. Very easy read but did find 1st scene of cupcake club in kitchen very confusing. I just didnt get what had/was going on. Think it presumes reader read book 1 which I hadnt. Some of the issues/background to that scene are explained later in book. I just felt kitchen scene allegory would be to everyone shouting at once. Thats my only gripe with story.
E-copy I read. Last sentence of story is immediately followed by authors note. No line or paragraph break to distinguish The End and then Authors note. Just carried on as if part of story.""I'll blame it on the cupcakes". In sweet stuff......"

4.0 out of 5 stars Second book sweeter than the first 9 July 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read book one sugar rush and didn't think too much of it, but this one was better it had more story , I liked Riley and Quinn and had a big old soft spot for Brutus the dog, this has the characters from book one back , and the story goes at a better pace, Riley's had her heart broken and has come to heal and start a new life when she meets Quinn, she doesn't expect to have feelings so fast for him and it scares her, Quinn was great a strong sexy man who knows what he wants and goes after it, better than book one still a little slow for me but more fun in this,made it a better read glad I stuck with the series and gave book two a go

5.0 out of 5 stars A Lovable Romance 1 Feb 2013
By L. Rigod - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
In this second novel in a delightfully humorous and romantic series, we find food stylist/ house stylist Riley Brown adjusting to life being a single and living in Georgia. To her shock, a handsome author rescues her from a life threatening episode at a house she is styling, to only place her heart in a treacherous situation.

Cleverly woven into this tale are the characters we grew to love in the first novel. We have the Cupcake club members only too ready to help Riley find her heart.

Quinn Brannigan has returned to the small Georgian island, Sugarberry, to remember his Grandfather and find an answer to his novel which seems to be heading in a new direction. He finds he can't get Riley out of his mind.

This was a fun filled romance. I truly enjoyed reading it and the recipes at the end are a bonus. The fact that there is a lovable dog even made it more special for me.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good not great 20 Dec 2012
By CM - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the 2nd of the books in Donna Kauffman's Cupcake Club series (the first is Sugar Rush) and like its predecessor, it's a light, sweet romance. While I liked the first and second books to want to finish the series, I liked Ms. Kauffman's other books better for their tension and sizzle. In this story, Riley and Quinn become the latest couple to find their mates on Sugarberry Island. There was a bit of a predictability. Riley, like Lani before her couldn't believe Quinn would be in love with her - what is with these women? They're strong enough to run their own businesses but not strong enough to have good self confidence? Equally, Baxter (Sugar Rush) and Quinn are both famous and must reconsider their home's locations if they want to be with their newfound loves. Of course, like all traditional romances, there is HEA to consider and so it's not a surprise what they choose.

Again, a good, not great story but perfect for a vacation read.

Sweet Stuff

Double Fudge...Toasted Coconut...Key Lime...Strawberry Cream...
Every bite is a mouthful of heaven.
And the women of the Cupcake Club are bringing their appetites ...
Riley Brown never imagined she would find her bliss on Georgia's quiet Sugarberry Island after years of Chicago's city life. With a new career and fantastic new friends, she's got it all--except for eligible men. But a gig staging a renovated beach house delivers a delicious treat--six feet of blue-eyed, gorgeous writer as delectable and Southern as pecan pie. Quinn Brannigan has come to Sugarberry to finish his latest novel in peace, and suddenly Riley has a taste for the bad boy author that no amount of mocha latte buttercream or lemon mousse will satisfy ...
Riley's friends are rooting for her to give in to her cravings and spice up her life, but it's Quinn who needs to learn that life's menu just might include love, in all its decadent, irresistible flavors...

Riley had loved her job in Chicago and it still hurt when she thought about leaving it to start over. She found her way to Sugarberry Island and settled in there on a borrowed houseboat. She found an interesting new job staging homes and condos for sale on the surrounding islands and began to make friends and a new life. The only thing missing was male companionship, and she isn't sure that she's ready to get back into that race.
While working on staging a lovely beach cottage for showing, Riles lets her eyes wander to the Jog Master 3000 she set up and decides that it can't be that hard to try. Looking at the control panel with all the buttons she steps up and presses a few. As the machine starts rolling she starts walking slowly. The pace starts to pick up until she is hanging onto the side rails for dear life, wondering how she's going to get off this thing with her body intact. Although of course she is also dreaming about hunky EMT's coming to her rescue.
She is now almost thirteen minutes into her torture and wondering where the deliverymen with the Steinway Piano she ordered are. She is also imagining herself being thrown from the job machine and sees the newspaper headlines in her mind "Riley Brown Found Dead! Sugarberry's Premiere House Stager in High Speed Treadmill Incident!"
The doorbell chimes and she hopes it is the men who are delivering the piano she ordered for the house. It will add just the right touch of class, and hominess to the house. Again the doorbell chimes and she starts to wonder why they aren't coming in, Open House means open house. Just walk in and bring the piano. A deep voice with a Southern accent startles her as he says "I thought this was the house that is being leased. Riley looks up and sees handsome six foot plus, with shoulders and jawline and loses it as she is thrown violently off the treadmill and into her artfully arranged cluster of plants.
This is definitely the way to meet the world famous author Quinn Brannigan!.
This is the second book in the wonderfully funny and enjoyable Cupcake Club Romance books. I love the way the author brings what are essentially damaged souls to the island where they are healed and find happiness and love in this small town island setting. I truly hope that this series has a long and successful run.

FTC Full Disclosure: I received this book from the publisher who only asked for a fair and impartial review.

Review originally posted at Romancing the Book

Let me start out by saying that I love Donna Kauffman. Her writing style and story telling skills just draw me in to the tale and just won’t let me go. And having read the first book in this series, Sugar Rush, and loving the community she was creating, I couldn’t wait to get started on Sweet Stuff.

This story starts shortly after the Sugar Rush ends and features Riley who made a small appearance in that prior book. And from page one, I was in stitches laughing at Riley’s klutziness, perhaps because I could totally relate. But it also made her more believable. Yes, she’s an attractive women. But she’s also clumsy, not stick thin and a little awkward when it comes to dealing with a man she’s attracted to. And she’s also dealing with having been betrayed from her fiancee. As the story progressed, I found myself rooting her on and anxiously awaiting her “ah ha” moment so we could have our happily ever after.

Enter into the picture Riley. He’s a famous author who has come to this small island community in South Carolina to clear his mind and work on his new novel. Little does he realize that his world is going to be shaken up when he meets Riley. Quinn is your typical romance hero… you know the type. They’re rich or famous (or both), quite handsome and sometimes just too good to be true. But that didn’t stop me from perhaps just falling a little in love with Quinn myself as I read his love story with Riley. His understanding of Riley and her insecurities, but his persistence with her when she’s keeping him at a distance just had me turning the pages.

The plot of this book is really just the romance. There’s no grand mystery or bad guy in the wings. There are some minor subplots that enhance the story, but Sweet Stuff is all about the character development as they work toward their happily ever after. And I was honored to go along for the ride.

As this book is part of the Cupcake Club series, we’re also treated with a couple recipes for the reader to enjoy. How does Reverse Caramel Apple Cupcakes or Sweet Peach Tea Cupcakes sound?

I honestly can’t wait for the next book in this series, Babycakes, which will be released in October. The book does stand alone, but has characters from Sugar Rush do make appearances in Sweet Stuff, reading the series in order does make the experience a little more enhanced.
