When Gage took over his grandparent’s bakery three years ago, love was the last thing on his mind. Despite the best efforts of his wanna-be-matchmaker sister, Emma, he was content to keep his nose to the grindstone, work his ass off, and make the bakery the success he knew it could be.

That all changed the day the neighbor from hell bought the shop next to his and began rem

This is such a good book. I love that Ms. Wright took a sad subject and shows us how women can get past some terrible things that can happen. I couldn’t begin to imagine what Cady went through or how I would deal with everything. It had to be even harder for Cady with no other family or close girlfriends. I was glad to see her remember about the mountain Hannah and her had gone to in college. I thought she as very brave to start the business she did. I loved Gage and his personality. I thought i ...more

Cady Walcott had determined that today she was starting her life again. Instead of wasting away in bed all day, afraid of the world beyond her windows, she decided to go to Long Valley for a hike. Her college roommate Hannah Lambert, had brought her here once before, and the tranquility was just what she needed. She perhaps should have called Hannah to meet with her, but she would do that next time. Right now, small steps. Cady had lots of trauma to get past and it was going to take time to rejo ...more

I'm so happy that Erin Wright has released a new book. I read it as soon as I got it. She has the gift of being able to tell a story and make you feel like you are right there. I feel like I have a connection with the characters.

Baked With Love is the 9th book in the Long Valley Western Romance series. You don't have to read the other books in the series but you really should. Not only are they fantastic books but you'll gain a lot of insight, as the characters from previous books walk through t

Having read all the books in this series, I was delighted to read Gage's story. Determined to make a success of the bakery he has taken over from his grandparents, Gage doesn't have much time for a social life, let alone romance. He certainly didn't factor the skittish woman who appears to have more money than sense, that bought the store next to the Muffin Man, into the equation. Even though he is oblivious to her charms, Gage cannot help but recognise that Cady has very real problems, even apa ...more

Gage, The Muffin Man" has been in the background of many of the Long Valley books, baking up all his delights. But he has not been lucky in love. He is a workaholic with the bakery he is buying from his grandparents, and it takes a special woman to work their way into his heart (or under his skin, depending on the day). Cady is petite and beautiful but she has so much baggage that it must cost her a fortune to fly! She suffers from depression and agoraphobia after a frightening incident and the ...more

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author via Booksprout. I also purchased a copy as I just love all of the stories of Long Valley.

This was a wonderful addition to the story. The cover model is the perfect one for Gage. It was so easy to picture the scenes that were written almost like a movie script. It flowed so well that it was hard to put down. Ms. Wright just put poor Cady through the wringer with such a past that would make most women just shut down. Cady did for a while

Erin is a very talented storyteller. Her writing style mixes laughable moments and intensely powerful emotions to create an exceptionally good romance. Her novel is beautifully written with a smooth flow that is well edited. She delivers powerful characters that are multi-dimensional and have great chemistry. I was fully engrossed in Cady Walcott and Gage Dyer’s story. Gage is kind, caring and patient while Cady lives in fear and pain and her life is an emotional wreck. She needs Gage’s understa ...more

Such a great addition to the Long Valley series!

Without giving the plot away, this story revolves around Cady, a young woman who has had more than her fair share of trauma in her life. She meets Gage as she is trying to move forward with her life.

Gage has a heart of gold and is there for Cady step-by-step as she works on reclaiming some normalcy in her life.

While the subject matter is serious and tragic, this story draws you in and keep you engaged throughout. Watching Cady grow and regain con

I enjoyed this book about Gage and Cady, he owns the Muffin Man bakery, and Cady has bought the shop next door. She's new in town and is trying to rebuild her life after too much personal trauma. Her plan is to start a smoothie and health food business. Unfortunately for Gabe, this will cause him and others some annoyance as the works are carried out.

Their relationship starts slow and Gage does his best to make her feel safe around him and just as she is starting to think everything is going to

Like a feral kitten....

What can I say about this story without giving spoilers? How about "I loved it and you have to read this one"? This addition to the "Long Valley" series is definitely a roller-coaster ride. After Cady and Gage's first meeting, one would think the two could never be friends. Actually their second meeting isn't very promising either. So, how is that they find themselves drifting into a friendship? Could it be because Gage knows that like a feral kitten Cady needs to handled

The Muffin Man.

Gage Dyer is the town baker. Hey, he’s ripped and he bakes. He’s a dream.
But he has a nightmare of a new neighbor, in the utter headcase Candy Walcott. She disses sugar, acts like he’s going to jump her, takes out the entire towns electricity when she hires a cheap electrician off Craigslist.

I loved Gage, the hard working baker.
I really didn’t care for Cady. Yes, she has reason to be skittish. But I just wanted Gage with someone extra special.

What I liked? That they got to kno

This might be my favorite Erin Wright book so far even though I love pretty much every word she writes. I loved Gage back from Flames of Love, plus we got to see more from Sugar in this book. Cady just, she just instantly found her way into my heart. Just like Gage, I wanted to hug her and tell her everything would be okay, that she was going to be okay. And the way Gage was with Cady just made me love him more. I could go on, but i really dont want to give anything away. This book is so good, e ...more

Cady has been through a difficult period of her life. After several months down at the bottom of her sorrow, she decided to spend the day up the hiking trails of Goldfork Mountains. She has no idea how that is going to change her life.
Gage is happy in his bakery shop, surrounded by coffee aromas, flour, sugar, and other sweet stuff. He has no idea how his life is going to change when “Skittish Girl” enters his shop.
Although the book has some serious and hard issues, Erin Wright still manages to

Wow, awesome book. Again Ms. Wright gives readers a wonderful story about love and sacrifices made to make it work. Gage has worked hard to take over and make his grandparents bakery a success. He loves baking even tho he’s built like a linebacker. Cady has been through hell over the last few years and is desperate for a new start. So on a whim she buys the storefront next to the bakery. Needless to say she and Gage don’t hit it off. It’s an emotional journey for Cady and one of patience for Gag ...more

Baked With Love is the latest Long Valley book but can be read as a delightful stand-alone. Handsome bakery owner Gage is determined to make a success of the business and romance is not anywhere in his future plans ... that is until the dilapidated shop next to the bakery finally gets sold. This really is a fabulous, easy to read small town Romance. It has so many true to life characters, both new and old, that you feel as if know them. Erin Wright is a very talented author who can weave romance ...more

I have been waiting and waiting for Gage's story and it so didn't disappoint. This muffin man is straight out of book boyfriend material.

Cady has had a really tough couple of years. She is trying to dig out of the mess and depression she has been in. Buying a store and moving seems to be a good idea. However, a grumpy man next door, taking down the power grid in the whole town and plain just being an out of towner doesn't start her off on the right path.

Gage has patience of a saint. There wasn't

Reading this series I have drooled over and lusted after Gage Dyer, as have almost all of the single women of Sawyer and Long Valley. But it seems one petite new comer who isn’t interested in him at all will catch his attention. Their falling in love story follows a most unusual path, though heartbreaking it is also witty and only proves how right for each other they are. We catch up with a lot of old friends while enjoying a return to this close knit community in a fun enthralling read.

This book shows the strength you have within when something devastating happens. Cady is trying to get control of her life.
Cady is afraid of her own shadow, with good reason, and it's Gage that helps her.
Gage has been so focused on the bakery that his social life is non existent. Then he meets Cady.
This is a sweet romance that touches on some tough topics and how we need to find our strength within. That it isn't weakness to ask for help, whether from friends or a professional.

Gage is owner of the Muffin Man. Everything decadent and sinful, full of calories. Cady is very reserved and has deep issues she is not willing to share. Cady stops at the Muffin Man only to find the shop next door empty. She has been thinking about opening a smoothie shop, all goodness and good for you stuff. Just the opposite of Gage's Muffin Man. Talk about opposites. Can they work thru that and can Cady open up her heart to anyone. Even as Gage helps her out, will she really let him in.

I LOVE the Long-valley series! Finally Gabe gets snatched by a girl(an out of towner of all things). Cady has a long road ahead of her and given how patient Gabe is he’s just the one to walk beside her and help her through. It can be hard to move on after what she went through but with the help of Hannah and of course Gabe she makes it. Grab a copy so you can see how strong Cady is and how her limits are pushed.

I enjoyed this book which is part of the Long Valley Romance series but it can be read as a standalone. The book was well-written with strong characters and an entertaining read. A . cute enemies to lovers romance that will keep you page turning. Some fiery language and no shortage of sexy scenes. I read an arc via Booksprout and voluntarily chose to review.

I could not put down Baked with Love. I enjoy all Ms. Wright's books, but this one is really special. When I got done all I could think was WOW! Cady just had so much to overcome but big hearted Gage really helps her. The last chapter and the epilogue are really outstanding and the perfect ending to this awesome romance. If you read no other book set in Long Valley, read this one!

It was a long journey for Candy to overcome her tragic past. Gage came along on that journey and was there to support her. As Cady became stronger, so did the love between her and.Gage. Both characters were very lovable. In spite of Cady’s struggle, her and Gage shared a special bond and some very humorous moments. Looking forward to more of this series. I received this ARC for an honest review.

Another fabulous book in the Long Valley Series. This one is about Gage Dyer and Cady Walcott. Cady stops in at the Muffin Man Bakery in Sawyer after hiking in the mountains where she meets Gage. She is scared of him because of his size! From being scared to falling in love is a tough journey for her.

Gage and Cody together are perfect. It was a heartwarming read. The characters are developed and had great chemistry. This book draws you in and keep you engaged throughout. This is the 9th book in the Long Valley series. This is a standalone read, you don't have to read the other books in the series but it is more enjoyable if you do.

This was a very enlightening story since it was a very sensitive subject matter. Cady had some traumatic events that left her emotionally scarred and Gage was the perfect guy to help. The author did a beautiful job of making this such a wonderful story that was full of growth, love and humor. I highly recommend this one!
