Sugarcoated by Erin Nicholas Book Summary

A hot, funny brother’s best friend rom com . . . with sugar on top! 
She's his best friend's little sister. He's known her all his life. He's practically part of the family. There is nothing either of them could do to surprise the other at this point. Then she showed up in his bedroom in lingerie and asked him to take her V-card.
Okay, that was a surprise.
Aiden is pretty sure Zoe was equally surprised when he told her no. 
To say that he didn't handle it well would be a massive understatement. Almost as massive as the amount of work he's going to have to do now to convince her that he wants her. Forever. 
Right after he tells her that he's bought the company that's her bakery’s biggest competitor. 
Maybe if he tells her he’s in love with her first, that will help sugarcoat the whole we're-rivals-in-business-now thing. 
So, first "I'm in love with you", then "take off your clothes", then "I'm now your business adversary".
Sure. Piece of cake.

Sugarcoated (Erin Nicholas) Book Reviews

Can’t love this enough!Best friend’s sister/ friends to lovers trope is my jam! And nobody does it better than Erin Nicholas! Aiden and Zoe were muy caliente from page one. Aiden frankly had his work cut out for him because Zoe is one stubborn miss! How is he suppose to tell Zoe about his new venture...when she has VERY rigid thoughts about said company....and convince her he’s home to stay, because of her? His sweet and very sexy actions speak louder that words...but come on, he still needs the words! But so does Zoe, so any conflict can be worked out if they’re just honest with each other. Right?! As much as I loved Zoe and Aiden, one of the best parts of a new series is to meet the characters who will be both introduced and woven through the whole series. I am very preoccupied now with who will match with who...and how their stories will unfold. I’m already in love with Jane and Josie, Ollie looks to be an absentminded but adorable nerd and Cam is going to be a fiery wildcard. I can’t wait! Great first book, wonderful characters and a believable set up to both Zoe and Aiden’s story and ultimate conflict. Welcome to Appleby, Iowa..Score: 5/5

What happens next is such fun, secrets, laughter, sparks, hot romance, cupcakes, complications, business rivalry and so much more! Can’t wait for the rest of the books in this series about the other hunky billionaires and the women who tame them!.Score: 5/5

Amazing new series!!Ever since I discovered the Sapphire Falls series in 2015, I have been absolutely in love with Erin Nicholas' small towns. This first book in the Hot Cakes series combines everything I love about Sapphire Falls and Bliss. I am so excited to see where this series goes that I can hardly handle it. Zoe is one of the best characters I've read in a long time. She's strong, confident, and even though she's stubborn, she's not unmoving. I finished this book with a huge girl crush on her. My favorite thing about her though was making the golden boy who never really had to work to win anything work for her. This book left me feeling so light and happy I'm counting down the days until Forking Around is in my hands..Score: 5/5

Review by Christine JaliliThis was such a sweet and fun romance. Loved the chemistry between Cam and Zoe, loved how well they knew each other. It’s been 5 months since she offered up her virginity, is he now too late? But he’s got a secret to tell, will she understand? Really loved his grand gesture at the end. I highly recommend this book..Score: 5/5

Fabulously fun & sexy friends to lovers romanceI was swept away in the fabulously funny and sexy friends to lover’s romance. Zoe is afraid of failure or looking foolish so she sticks to what she knows. Even taking over the family bakery, she uses the same recipes and sells the same products that her mother and grandmother did before her. But she is tired of not knowing about sex so she propositions Aiden, a man she grew up with and feels safe with but he turns her down. Aiden knew when Zoe showed up in his bed wanting sex that this wouldn’t be a one-night event for them. He realized that he wanted more with her so he had to put a plan in place to return to his hometown and claim her. Of course, he never expected that plan to involve buying Hot Cakes, the baking company, which is hated by Zoe’s family. Now how does he convince Zoe that he loves her and that Hot Cakes isn’t a threat to her bakery? Zoe has to face her fears and realize that not knowing is sometimes a good thing and to be willing to take risks. Will she or will she push Aiden away?.Score: 5/5

Review: Hot Cakes 1: SugarcoatedSugarcoated by Erin Nicholas is the first book in a brand new series entitled Hot Cakes and is a great introduction to the small town world of Appleby, the Hot Cakes factory and the Buttered Up bakery. Told in dual POV between Aidan and Zoe, the story is filled with best friends skirting the line towards lovers, secrets, rivalry and more. There was passion, some interesting scenes with cream filling and some really sweet (pun intended) moments between Aidan and Zoe. Enjoy!.Score: 4/5

Sugar and SpiceLove the sweetness and the spice in this book. ChAracters banter well, the problem looms over the story, waiting for the crash. Can’t wait to read the next book on the series!.Score: 5/5

Aiden is the whole package!This is book one in the Hot Cakes series and it features Zoe and Aiden. He’s been her brother’s best friend since childhood but she didn’t realize she had a crush on him until five months ago. It was seduction gone wrong and she thought he didn’t want her. He did but he wanted more than one night. Also, how does he tell her that he and his partners bought the company that she thinks is her competitor but really isn’t? She’s carrying on the family tradition of the feud between her family bakery and the owners of the packaged snack cake factory in town. Zoe is EXTREMELY stubborn and close-minded to change...ANY change. Aidan is drool worthy, dressed in a well fitting suit and tie. He’s the whole package. The story line is great but I wish Zoe wasn’t quite as stubborn as she was. I didn’t hate her but she wasn’t my favorite character either. There was some fantastic character growth happening with the McCaffrey women towards the end. It really surprised me! I’ll never look at cupcake cream filling the same again. Looking forward to the next book..Score: 4/5

Swoon & Sizzle!SUGAR COATED: HOT CAKES was the romantic ride of a lifetime. Every single second of this story was just so incredibly entertaining and I had a blast reading it. Seriously sexy, highly entertaining and perfectly romantic. As well as charming, adorable and LOL, funny. It was L-O-V-E- @ first page for me. Zoe and Aidan are a total force to be reckoned with and their story is one that you are not going to want to miss. The banter between these characters sizzles between teasing and serious, dirty and sweet, full of flirty, snark and heavenly foreplay with delicious sexual undertones. Their interactions are so much fun, and sexy hot, that Cupcakes will soon be your new favorite dessert! The ease they had with each other. The pull they had. The great conversations, and dialogue it all had me hooked. I could feel their attraction and loved their heat. The chemistry between them is so real it leaps off the page right at you. This book had me smiling, laughing, melting and swooning with every turn of the page. And Aidan oh my! Hello sweet, charming, sexy, bossy and dirty talking alpha, and my new favorite book boyfriend. I love how caring he was and just there for Zoe! I was totally charmed by this small town, golden boy, millionaire. Swoon! This was one of the best written most captivating, entertaining and unforgettable romance that I’ve read in a long time. What a Fantastic way to start off a new sexy, rom-com series! Can’t wait for the next in this series with Dax and Jane! You need to read this immediately because it is a masterpiece that needs to be worshipped..Score: 5/5

Pink is a lot of fun!Uber Fun start to Erin Nicholas new series. Pink is the theme in this fun lighthearted romp to the bakeries! I will never look at frosting, cake pops or pink satin the same way again!.Score: 5/5

Delicious new series!This was the first book in a new series and it was an excellent start! This book made me hungry for cupcakes and more books in this series. Aiden and Zoe have known each other their entire lives, their families were very close and Aiden was Zoe’s older brother’s best friend. After Aiden left his hometown for the big city to make it big with his job he comes back home...for Zoe and a new job opportunity. Zoe and Aiden don’t fight their attraction too hard and Zoe opens up about her work to Aiden. But Aiden keeps his new job from Zoe since he isn’t sure how she will take the news. I think we can all see how this will work out for him... I actually love how Zoe handles everything from the moment Aiden came back to town, now mind you she is a bit stubborn at the get go but she does keep everything that is told to her filed away in her mind and does try to make small changes. Ones that she can be comfortable with and still makes her happy with her bakery. I love all of Aiden’s partners and I am excited for all of their stories. This is going to be a wonderful series and I can’t wait for more!.Score: 5/5

An amazing read!!!What an amazing start to this new series by Erin Nicholas!! We have the brother’s best friend trope. A rivalry between families. And that’s just the beginning! Zoe and Aiden. Where do I start. The chemistry between the two is AMAZING. Even in their banter, you can tell they truly care about each other. I loved how Zoe was such a strong heroine. She has an image for what she wants, and goes for it. Aiden is perfect for her. He’s sexy, sweet, and brings a fresh set of eyes to some situations. Oh, and of course, what would a baking/sweets be without some ooey gooey amazing sexiness!! We also meet some amazing secondary characters in this book, and it’s just the icing on the cake. I honestly can’t tell you who’s story I’m looking forward to most! The guys are so different from each other, it’s amazing they meld so well. The girls. Well, all I can say about them is they are DEFINITELY going to be keeping these men on their toes throughout the entire series! You definitely want to grab this sexy, amazing read ASAP!.Score: 5/5

Spicy and sweetSUGARCOATED is the first instalment in Erin Nicholas’ contemporary, adult HOT CAKES erotic, romance series focusing on the new owners and investors in the Hot Cakes snack company in Appleby, Iowa (Aiden, Dax, Cam, Ollie and Grant). This is independent bakery owner Zoe McCaffery, and billionaire investor Aiden Anderson’s story line. Told from dual third person perspectives (Aiden and Zoe) SUGARCOATED is a best friend’s little sister story line focusing on the building relationship between independent bakery owner Zoe McCaffery, and billionaire investor Aiden Anderson. Five months earlier on Christmas Eve our heroine, Zoe McCaffery, made an unsuccessful pass at her brother’s best friend and business partner Aiden Anderson, and in the ensuing months Zoe has just barely recovered from her humiliation and embarrassment. Seeing Aiden in her bakery, Buttered Up, brings back too many bad memories of what happened and why but Aiden wants a second chance to make things right including falling in love with his best friend’s little sister. What ensues is the rebuilding friendship, relationship and slow building love between Aiden and Zoe, and the potential fall-out as Aiden keeps secret a business deal that could directly affect Zoe’s bottom line. Aiden Anderson wants to save his small town of Appleby, Iowa but saving his small town could mean alienating the woman he loves. The family owned Hot Cakes snack company is up for sale but Hot Cakes is in direct competition with Zoe McCaffery’s independently owned Buttered Up. Heading back to Appleby, Aiden knows he must make amends with his best friend’s sister, a woman who stirs something deep within our story line hero. Zoe McCaffery knows she is unable to compete with the Hot Cakes snack company but Zoe’s personal attention to detail makes Buttered Up a favorite of the local crowd. Her attraction to Aiden has never waivered but Zoe is about to make a deal with Aiden, a deal that will bring her up close and personal with the man that she loves. The relationship between Zoe and Aiden is one of mutual attraction but when Aiden refused Zoe’s advances our heroine struggled in the aftermath of humiliation and heart break. Desperate to lose her virginity, Zoe makes Aiden an offer he cannot refuse. The $ex scenes are passionate and seductive without the use of over the top, sexually graphic language and text. We are introduced to Aiden’s business partners: Cam McCaffery, Grant Lorre, Dax Marshall and Oliver Caprinelli; Zoe’s best friends Jocelyn and Jane, as well as her parents Maggie and Steve. SUGARCOATED is a story of family and friendships, secrets and heart break. The premise is inviting ; the characters are flirty and colorful; the romance is spicy and sweet..Score: 4/5

Hotstuff!!!I have read all of Erin’ books and am so stoked to read this new series. I just finished “ Sugarcoated “ and it is steaming ‘Hot’ ! Zoe and Aiden’s brothers best friend to lovers story is so captivating and their chemistry is off the chart. I will never be able to look at pink frosting the same way again. They know each other so well but still manage to find new things to discover about each other. Erin once again doesn’t disappoint hot guys and strong independent women with lots off sass. Everything you want in a romance novel. We’ve now met all Aiden’s partners and Zoe’s friends. I’m sure this quirky little town is about to heat up! Can’t wait for the next one..Score: 5/5
