    I love Levi and Joss. I love this book.

    This is the first book in the Smartypants spin off books (this one is from the Winston Bros' series).

    I think that this can be a standalone book. There are a couple of very brief appearances from previous books. I really enjoyed

    's writing. I plan to read more of her books.

    I love Levi and Joss. I love this book.

    This is the first book in the Smartypants spin off books (this one is from the Winston Bros' series).

    I think that this can be a standalone book. There are a couple of very brief appearances from previous books. I really enjoyed

    's writing. I plan to read more of her books.

    I love that Joss wasn't portrayed as a martyr or that she felt sorry for herself. Joss is still young but is determined to get on a path to do great things with what she has.

    I love Levi. I love his family. Neither of these two dwell on the past. Levi has a lot going for him & seemed to be the golden boy as he was growing up. He had to find his way too.

    The story opens up with Levi and Joss (Jocelyn) are already bff since they graduated from high school.

    I loved their relationship building, struggle and growth.

    I need to give a shout out to Joy- Joss' boss at the Donner bakery, Levi's mom, and to Jennifer, and even Joss' mom who had to learn to let her daughter fly.

    I won't say much specifics. This is a very sweet. Slow burn, love-love lovely romance.

    I did get annoyed with Joss-just a little. I wanted her to just go for it. I'm a mom of a disabled daughter, so I just worried I guess. Will Levi find his way? Will Joss find her way? Read this and find out.

    This is your chance to read a book in the Penny Reid Winston Brothers' world.

    I received this advance copy from Spartypants Romance. Thank you!

    5 Brilliant Sonic stars for Baking Me Crazy!

    "Patience is a virtue, Levi Buchanan." "And a virtue never hurt you..” My heart is a jumbled up mess of feels. This was absolutely the most perfect, slow burn best friends to lovers story that I’ve read in a long time. First of all, to be instantly teleported into Green Valley is always where I want to be. Donner’s bakery, and seeing Jennifer, Cletus and a couple new characters was simply fantastic.

    Karla outdid herself with this

    5 Brilliant Sonic stars for Baking Me Crazy!

    "Patience is a virtue, Levi Buchanan." "And a virtue never hurt you..” My heart is a jumbled up mess of feels. This was absolutely the most perfect, slow burn best friends to lovers story that I’ve read in a long time. First of all, to be instantly teleported into Green Valley is always where I want to be. Donner’s bakery, and seeing Jennifer, Cletus and a couple new characters was simply fantastic.

    Karla outdid herself with this story. The way she worded things that Levi or Joss would say, I could feel in my bones. I loved that it was the guy that had feelings and the girl was oblivious. It was very interesting to read from that POV.

    “There would never be a day when I didn't wish Jocelyn would just … wake up and realize it. That one day, she'd see me differently. That she could look back on the day we met and see that I'd never wavered because the way I loved her was as constant and unyielding as the Earth rotating around the sun. Something that couldn't be stopped or prevented.

    Or this one that gave my chills, chills:

    “Sometimes my brain struggled to remember that we were just friends. She'd never dated, never even hinted that she wanted to. She'd never given me a longing glance. Never stared at my mouth like she wondered what it tasted like. But my hands never, not once, stopped wanting to reach for hers. My fingers always, always itched to dig into her crazy hair and see what the curve of her scalp felt like. My brain knew what this relationship was, but sometimes, the signals it sent to the rest of my body didn't always match up with the truth of our situation.”

    I could go on and on, but you just need to experience this goodness for yourself. Feels upon feels upon feels. SmartyPants Romance has got it going on!

    I'm in that stage right now where life is cozy and wonderful. You know what I mean. It's called bliss—the happy sigh after you read something amazing.

    Each word was written with care. You can tell. This isn't a story strung together haphazardly while the author noshed on candy. I imagine her curled up on the sofa, as obsessed with her characters and their love story as I am.

    This is a story filled with heart. It's a journey so different from anything you've ever read in the very best way that I promise you it's unforgettable. This one will stay with you.

    I loved this book. I hate that it's over. If I could crawl into this world and eat pickle cupcakes for the rest of my life, I would.

    Read this. You deserve a book this great.

    WOW ! Did I just Read all this Perfection ??!!

    When I read the news of

    new books from

    Newsletter, I was really skeptical ,

    IS so dear and special to my heart , I just Couldn't imagine how multiple writers other than

    could write stories from this fantastic world , I mean , Nothing good could get out from this mess !!

    Ohhhhh Myyyyyy ! I was SO FREAKING WRONG!

    was perfection, reading this book was like meeting a stranger but having the feeling that You know this stranger, that he isn't stranger at all !!

    This story took place within the same

    community, that I already love, yes, the characters were all new ( Except for the Winstons - Especially Cletus and Jennifer - ) , But when I started reading I didn't feel as if I'm starting a new book , EVERYTHING WAS FAMILIAR , and I don't know why !!! ? as this could be read as a standalone novel .

    isn't new to the Romance Genre , BUTT

    In

    made me fall in love AGAIN with this trope .

    Ahhhhh,

    is one of the best heroes I've EVER read about, I already love the name Levi, and in this story, he was sweet, charming, funny, loving, adorable, hot ....... I can keep talking about him FOREVER ..... What I liked the most about him , his compassion and love for

    how he was understanding, considerate and careful with her feelings , how he sacrificed a lot of chances to be with her, just waiting for THE RIGHT TIME, the time when she is ready to accept him as more than just her best friend , but While All that she needed is A friend < he was that For her ..

    While-Reading the first chapters, My heart broke, every time he gazed lovingly at

    while she wasn't looking at him, every time he described the color of her eyes, Every time he was proud of her for her courage and hard work ...

    AHHHHH ! I JUST LOVE HIM SO MUCH <3 <3 <3

    was a brilliant character, ( in most Romance novels, there is kind of standers for the characters: they should be perfect, beautiful, hot, confident ..... ) BUTTT The amazing

    changed all the rules, as our Levi wasn't arrogant and brooding, Our Joss was Badass, Awesome, Sassy, funny and with a disability that made her MORE AMAZING...

    in this Romantic - Comedy , was able to spread awareness and educate others in many topics Regarding People with disabilities , she described the struggles that

    had to face since she started using the Wheelchair, with herself to start with, with the society and how others started to view her, ending up with her dating life ....

    It was amazing and heartbreaking at the same time to read about

    experience and story, I ADMIRED her so much, in some scenes, I found myself angry for This Incredible Woman.

    Love story was so sweet, romantic, amazing and really admirable. I loved every single part of this novel.

    For

    writing style, it was Brilliant, Her words were sooooooo beautiful. Definitely, a New favorite Author.

    THIS BOOK IS HIGHLY RECOMENDED, PLEASE JUST READ IT ;) You can thank me later ;)

    Favorite Quotes:

    Joy's face morphed. Gone was the sweet, ebullient young woman who'd been my co-worker for the past couple of hours. Gone was the happiest person in the world. In her place was determined, scheming Joy. She narrowed her eyes, and I actually sat back in my chair from the force of it.

    "There's a wild dog sitting outside." Her voice was shaky, but her eyes were unflinching. The skin around them was wrinkled and translucent, spotted with age. "Oh, that's my dog.

    "There's a wild dog sitting outside." Her voice was shaky, but her eyes were unflinching. The skin around them was wrinkled and translucent, spotted with age. "Oh, that's my dog.”… "He looks scary." I smiled at her. "He's very sweet, I promise." "What's his name?" "Nero," I answered. She glanced over her glasses at me. "After the Roman emperor who burned people alive?"

    Joy can't figure out how I learned so many swear words during my young life, and I had to try to explain how spending my impressionable teen years with the Buchanans gave me the vocabulary of a drunken pirate.

    For as different as I felt on the inside, it was strange that it didn't reflect anywhere else. Shouldn't there be a sign above my head? Beware of the twenty-one-year-old virgin with repressed sexual feelings. Explosion imminent. Touch with extreme caution. May spontaneously combust with prolonged eye contact and cupcake purchasing and/or casual swimming sessions.

    My Review:

    I will confess to a complete lack of awareness of Karla Sorensen’s genius before picking up this delightful book, but as she was Penny Reid’s pick to blaze the trail and be the first rattle out of the box to kick off her new Smartypants Romance, Green Valley World, Penny Reid Book Universe, well, that was all I needed to know. And I wholeheartedly concur with the mastermind’s brilliant choice. Ms. Sorensen has produced an excellent lead-in for a new series and her contribution fit seamlessly into the oddly alluring and ever-appealing microcosm of Green Valley.

    Written in my favorite dual POV, the storylines were relevant, engaging, and absorbing. The main character of Joss spent much of her time in a wheelchair and I was quite taken with the care, thoughtful observation, and sensitivity used in enlightening the reader of the impact her medical and mobility issues had on her social-emotional development and the energy and concentration required to complete even the most simple of tasks of day-to-day life that ambulatory bipeds take for granted.

    Ms. Sorensen’s humor was well-honed and witty, her characters were endearing and assessable, and to my gleeful amusement, their captivating tale effortlessly rolled through my gray matter with an even balance of emotional tone, with heart-squeezes and giggle-snorts aplenty. I was besotted with sweet Levi and adored how he perceived and cataloged Joss in vivid Technicolor in his inner musings. Levi current reigns as King, occupying the top spot on my list of BBFs. Does it even need saying that Karla Sorensen has a new fangirl?

    I love love love this book! The sweetness was perfection. A really good friends to lovers romance with those tender, achy, heartwarming feels that leave you giddy! I more than adored it and I just felt like Levi and Joss were everything!

    When Levi first met Joss as one of the coaches of her wheelchair basketball league, it was “lights out, head over heels in love” time. He didn’t care that she was sixteen and two years younger than him, he just knew the girl with the crazy curly hair and the snarky attitude was meant to be his. Fate can be a crazy bitch and thouStars!"Levi

    When Levi first met Joss as one of the coaches of her wheelchair basketball league, it was “lights out, head over heels in love” time. He didn’t care that she was sixteen and two years younger than him, he just knew the girl with the crazy curly hair and the snarky attitude was meant to be his. Fate can be a crazy bitch and though Joss was drawn to Levi from the beginning, all she could offer him was her friendship at that time.

    Jumping ahead five years, Levi and Joss are the best of friends but Levi still wants…more. Friendship has never been enough for him and he finds himself more in love with Joss than ever. For her part, Joss is absolutely clueless as to Levi’s true feelings. After an illness left her wheelchair bound seven years ago, she’s had a hard enough time facing her new reality, much less even considering someone else might want to make a life with her under those circumstances. She’s wrong, of course. Joss is a total badass whether she’s wheeling or walking and everyone around her seems to realize that.

    When a new man in town starts making his interest in Joss known, Levi realizes its finally time to let her know how he feels. If only five years of best friend bonding didn’t make that prospect a wee bit awkward.

    Right off the bat, I have to mention how refreshing it was to read a romance that didn’t follow the same old boring tropes. Yes, we get a friends to lovers storyline (my personal fav) but there are actual, real life issues keeping Levi from acting on his feelings. Joss and the fact she’d steered them towards friendship at first meeting, coupled with her insecurities when it comes to all things wheelchair related had Levi keeping his feelings to himself until he felt Joss was ready to listen. And let me tell you, the very second Levi realized Joss was going to be putting her single and ready to mingle vibes out there for the world to see, he knew what he had to do.

    Green Valley, folks! Yes, this Karla Sorensen bit of goodness takes place in Green Valley! Where Cletus lives and often makes an appearance! Okay, so you might not be as excited as I am by the prospect of more Cletus and I won’t judge you for that, but anytime I get the chance to head back for a little visit, I’ll take it. I love how Joss and Levi’s story seemed to fit seamlessly into Penny Reid’s world and even though I don’t recommend this, you don’t have to read any of Ms. Reid’s stories to start

    . I also appreciate how the author threw a little bit of her own crossover goodness into the story with mentions of characters from her

    series.

    Even though I loved Joss and Levi together, I would’ve liked more story about their actual relationship, both the friends and lovers variety, rather than the obstacles they were going to have to overcome. I completely understand why Joss felt the way she did, but I still could have used a little more of Joss feeling the “butterfly” thing for Levi.

    Baking Me Crazy is the first in the

    series released by Penny Reid’s Smartypants Romance. Joss and Levi’s story made a big fan out of me and I can’t wait to read the rest of these books.

    The good:

    -I liked that the heroine is in a wheelchair, and it’s generally not told in a soap opera kind of way. She’s just trying to live her life like anybody else.

    -Ummm...once they finally get together, Levi and Joss were cute.

    The bad:

    -This was really boring. Was there a plot?

    -This was really boring. Was there a plot?

    -Levi’s supposed pining over Joss made no sense. He knew immediately that she was it for him, yet he kept dating other women. (It was unclear if he was also sleeping with them.) This strikes me as unfair both to his supposed soulmate and the other women, even if he pretty clearly wanted Joss.

    -This book is barely funny at all. Like, it’s inevitable that the reader compare it to Penny Reid’s books, because it takes place in her universe. But the comparison isn’t all that favorable for this writer, unfortunately, because I didn’t laugh once while reading this.

    I’m Levi Buchanan, and until five years ago, I thought my family’s curse was Southern nonsense.

    No curse makes you fall in love at first sight. No curse can force an all-consuming love that will haunt you all the days of your life.

    Then I met Jocelyn Abernathy and realized how wrong I was.

    But when we met, she didn’t need love. She needed a friend. So that’s what we’ve been for five years.

    When Jocelyn meets a handsome stranger, I realize with ominous regret that I may have missed my window with my best friend.

    If I can’t get her to see beyond our friendship, my new curse may be to watch the love of my life move on with someone else.
