ARC was given in exchange for an honest review.

Tessa loves cupcakes. They’re tasty and comforting, and they’ve made her bakery a success. Men, on the other hand, are unreliable jerks who are bound to break her heart. Even if they’re hot enough to melt her frosting.

Tessa is smitten with Luke after a less than graceful encounter on the streets of Chicago, and fate keeps reuniting them. She’s certain he’d be delicious in bed, but there’s just one problem: Tessa’s sworn off long-distance romances, and Luke lives in London. Besides, he’s proven himself to be bad news. Although Tessa’s sexy stranger swears to set aside his player ways after she carries-out sweet revenge, she’s far too smart to believe in happily-ever-afters. Luke will need to use every weapon in his arsenal – including a spatula or two – to convince Tessa they’re meant to be together.
I thought I was ready to add some sizzling chick flick titles to my blog, but nope. Sweet Bliss proved to be too much for me, a lover of cheesiness and romance. 

When I requested this book, I knew I was going to see a lot of sweetness (because duh, bakeries?) and some sexy scenes but I did not expect the book to be full of them! In a sentence, this book is like Fifty Shades of Gray with cupcakes and frosting. 

Look, I know chick flicks are generally predictable from the start, but this book was way too predictable. The plot didn't even shift and become more interesting -- it just... sat there. It was the usual "girl meets guy who she thinks is perfect but she's afraid so she lets him go but in the last chapter they come back together" kind of book. The only thing that made it "more interesting" was the Fifty Shades-ness of it.

I'd say I'm disappointed by this book. I wish it had more fluff and complexity to its plot. 

Oh well, good effort.
