Kauffman (Let Me In, 2009) begins the first Cupcake Club contemporary romance by introducing James Beard nominee Leilani Trusdale, who quits her hectic life as the top chef in a prestigious New York restaurant to open her own cupcake bakery on small Sugarberry Island, Georgia. Mostly, she’s running away from nasty gossip generated about her when her former boss Baxter Dunne turned over his restaurant to her to begin a successful television show.

Sugar Rush was a fun, predictable romance with cupcakes! It was friends, or should I say former associates to lover’s romance. Sugar Rush made me laugh, with its small –town setting, banter and community. Cupcakes, a bakery, chefs and sinful talks about chocolate.

When baker extraordinaire Leilani Tursdale left the bustle of New York City for Georgia's sleepy Sugarberry Island, she didn't expect her past to follow. Yet suddenly, her former boss, Baxter Dunne, aka Chef Hot Cakes, the man who taught her everything pastry, wants to film his hit cooking show in her tiny cupcakery. The same Chef Hot Cakes whose molten chocolate brown eyes and sexy British accent made Lani's mouth water and her cheeks blush the color of raspberry filling- stirring all kinds of kitchen gossip, much of which Lani wished was true... Lani's friends are convinced that this time around, Baxter is the missing ingredient in her recipe for happiness. But convincing Lani will be a job for Baxter himself. And he'll need more than black velvet frosting to sweeten the deal...--From back cover.

If you like books with lots and lots of talking in them, boy have I got a book for you. I was torn over whether to give this book three or four stars, so I'm probably at 3 1/2 stars.

First the good stuff: I really liked the characters. They were interesting, likeable and well drawn. The locale was cute enough. Not especially unique, but nice. The sexy scenes were the right amount of explicit for me. I believed in the romance, especially because of their communication skills. Oh boy, did they ever communicate, which leads me to the...

Not so great stuff: The talking. Everyone talked about their feelings. Lots and lots of feelings. So many feelings and so much talking about feelings. The story verged on boring because not a lot happened. People walked on the beach, and they talked. They baked cupcakes, and they talked. They rode in cars, and they talked. They had sex, and they talked. All. The. Time. Loooooong conversations. I started skimming the in depth conversations everyone had. It's a tribute to how interesting the characters were that I finished the book.

I'm not sure I will read another one in the series, because while I liked the characters and setting, I don't know I can survive another gabfest.

This was a very, very enjoyable read. It was a really fun and romantic story about two Chef's deeply in love, but have decided to go their seperate ways, rather than admit their true feelings for one another. That is until they can't seem to get the other one out of their minds, and decide to do something about it. It won't be easy since one is still living and working in New York, and the other is now residing in a small coastal town off the shores of Georgia. Will they be able to figure out how to make their relationship work? Or are they doomed?

I loved all of these characters, some more quirky and lovable than the others. Pssst.....I'll let you in on a little secret, I wanna be Alva when I grow up. LOL!

This is my favorite Donna Kauffman novel. I enjoy her work very much, but this one hit a new emotional high.
Something that made this story different from other romances is that we start after other novels have ended. The H/h are already in love with each other but have not been able to be together. Had the story been about their time in NY, it would have been just okay. Instead, we see them learn to know each other truly and work on a real love rather than just being in love. This provides more emotional depth. Also, I appreciated that we read a lot from Baxter's POV. He was a much more complex and realistic character than I had anticipated. All in all, I could not wait to see everything would be resolved.
Because it is Donna Kauffman, it is also very funny and has great supporting characters. Women like Alva are a Southern institution! The writing is fantastic as always. I will be getting the rest of the series soon!

I normally love Donna Kauffman's books so was surprised to not be mentally drooling over this series. It's sweet (no pun intended) but not as rich in romantic tension as her black sheep series. However, it was a good set of stories that grew over time. In this particular book, Sugar Rush, the H/h are former co-workers who didn't connect in their original relationship (Baxter owned the patisserie where Lani worked as the executive chef.

The story is cute, there is lots of funny scenes and the folks on Sugarberry Island are the best (and some of the worst) of small town living. There is a little bit of sizzle, but not enough for my taste. On the whole, however, it was a nice story for those times when you want a little romantic comfort food. I'm not sure I'll reread this, but may after a long while. It did, however, make me want to reread some of Ms. Kauffman's older books, like The Great Scot or The Black Sheep and the Princess.

This was a fun, romantic, and yummy romp through the lives of pastry chefs and their friends. A nominated pastry chef, Leilani Trusdale decides to move closer to her remaining parent and quits her famous job at the illustrious Gateau. This means going to an island off of the state of Georgia, and opening her own dream...a cupcake bakery.

Leilani also left behind her dreams of a romance with the handsome television chef, Baxter Dunne, owner of Gateau and better known as "Chef Hot Cakes."

Then one morning, Leilani receives a shock. Chef Hot Cakes is coming to her island home, Sugarberry Island, to film a week of his next season's shows. And, the only working kitchen that could handle this...Cake in A Cup, of course.

This book is the first in the series and if it is any judge, I can't wait to read "Sweet Stuff."

Ok. There is so much personal reflection in this book I want to SCREAM! I feel like the story is so bogged down in each of the characters giving their reasons and back story that the book is just not progressing. We get it already! she doesn't trust him and he doesn't get it. Move on.

I'm pulling the plug. I can't even finish the book. I am so frustrated i am am actually moved to write this review. AND this is the first review I have ever written.

It had a lot of potential but my time is precious and I have just lost interest. If I were reading this in paperback form I would have flung it across the room already.

:) Here's something funny. I hate cooking and baking, but I love a cute kitchen romance. This book definitely gave me a sugar high.
Not as good as other books by author.
