Resolution: Baby Batter - Frankie Love

Reading Challenge Category: Free from Amazon

Official Blurb:

Let’s get a bun in her oven.
I’m a cop with a sweet tooth and Dolly’s the treat I’m craving.
She’s finally ended things with her deadbeat boyfriend and I’m not missing the chance to make her mine.
Dolly’s the owner of my favorite donut shop and the woman with the best Bavarian cream in the city. Damn, I love her jelly filling, her chocolate frosting, her perfect donut hole.
She may know how to make a mean old fashioned, but I know how to whip up baby batter that will get her maple glazed.
It’s a new year, and I’m ready to do more than get a bun in her oven.
I’ll be her baby daddy and her dream come true.

My Thoughts:

I didn’t have high hopes for this book based on the title and the premise, but against my better judgement, I decided to give it the benefit of the doubt. I really wished I hadn’t.
It is really cheesy and is full of baking puns. The term ‘baby batter’ is overused. Once was too much but when we were up to about the fifth time, I was growling at the book. Luckily, the book is really short. However, this both goes for and against it. It feels very rushed as it is only 37 pages long, but because it isn’t very good, you are glad it is only 37 pages long. I have read better books that are this length where the author makes the most of the space that they have and makes it feel like a full-blown story. This just felt very unreal and nonsensical.
There wasn’t anything majorly wrong with it, it, for me, was just cliched and corny. I rolled my eyes more than once.
I’ve just looked back over Frankie Love’s books that I have read that have been part of the Flirt Club collaborations, and I haven’t given any of them more than three stars. I’m not sure whey I have persevered for so long, but I have decided not to read the last two of hers that I had left to read as I am obviously not getting her style of writing and not enjoying them.
