Beefcakes (Culinary Creatures Book 2) by L Eveland

An anxiety filled wedding planner and a minotaur Baker!

From the blurb for Beefcakes:

Falling for a minotaur is no piece of cake.

Wedding planner Ezra Higgins is having a bad day. He’s lost his phone, he’s got six weeks to plan the biggest wedding of his career, and now the minotaur baker won’t stop flirting with him.

It’s enough to make anyone’s anxiety spike.

But the minotaur owner of Beefcakes bakery, Matteo Reyes, has an oddly calming effect on Ezra, and he can’t stop thinking about him, no matter how hard he tries.

Matteo is sweet as salted caramel and twice as hot, but he’s off limits, especially since they have to work together.
Pulling off a televised celebrity wedding in less than ninety days? Doable. Resisting Matteo’s candy-coated charm in the process? Ezra can’t have his cake and eat it too…or can he?

Angel's Review:

I want to start by saying I love when food is incorporated into a romance book. It brings me so much joy. I love the fact that Matteo not only enjoyed baking and sweets, but he also owned his own bakery. I loved the insights we got of him baking, and trying different recipes. Along with different things he chose to do with food. *Ahem*

Ezra is a mess, (his thoughts, not mine!) He puts so much pressure and stress on his shoulders that it's hard for him to relax. When he meets the baker for the wedding he's planning, for the first time in a long while, Matteo found ways to help him relax. 

I really enjoyed this book. I thought that both of these MC's complimented each other very well. Matteo calmed Ezra's frayed nerves, and Ezra added extra spice to Matteo's life. The writing for this book was so good! All of these creatures that were mentioned had details and stories to them, that you could picture them. I'm really excited to see where else this story goes. Although I don't think anything can too this one, I have a special place in my heart for sweets.
