Add a Little Spice

Is he the ingredient that’s missing from her life?

Harper Rivera is up to her elbows in cupcakes. For a shot at sky-rocketing her career as a pastry chef, Harper has to bake the best damn cupcake she can, but so far, she’s missed the mark. When she recruits her best friend Mason as taste-tester, an unexpected flicker of desire inspires the ingredient she’s searching for … but leaves her reeling.

Knowing she can’t risk their friendship Harper tries to ignore her feelings. But Mason doesn’t make it easy, and when they share a kiss to rival all kisses, Harper isn’t sure she can ever be just friends with Mason again. Will she play it safe in the friend zone, or is she brave enough to take a chance on love?
