Allison Bradley has always known what she wanted.

At thirteen, I decided to be a nurse. That very same year, I fell in love with Ed Cooper. Sure, I was barely a teenager and he was one of my older brother's buddies from boot camp. I didn't care. I was in love or lust...or something. He consumed my every waking thought.  Sadly, fifteen years later, I'm still infatuated and h

Absolutely smashing! Delicious is a combination of sweet and spicy that makes it a delight for the brain.

Allison has loved Ed since she was a teenager and Ed’s been hot for Allison since he joined her brother and their best friend in their new business two years ago, but each thinks the other isn’t interested. That is until one drunken kiss changes everything. This is a delicious story with a charming HEA ending. It’s a quick, easy, fun read you won’t want to put down. Allison and Ed are delightful and are just so right for each other. In fact, all the characters are very appealing and make you wan ...more

Deliciously decadent quick read. Allison and Ed’s chemistry is off the charts. Couldn’t put it down. I loved how the secondary characters intertwined and set up future plot lines. Looking forward to the next 2 books in the series.

This is book one in the Camos and Cupcakes series and it features Ed and Allison. The base story for Camos and Cupcakes is fabulous! Three military guys leave the service and open a bakery...a very successful bakery! Each contributing something different. Ed is the master baker. How much more delicious can you get? A gorgeous ginger that is 6‘4“ and can bake! He is also deliciously talented in other rooms of the house other than the kitchen. Allison’s been in love/lust with him since she was a t ...more

It’s Delightful. It’s Mouth Watering.
Delicious, Book One of the Camos and Cupcake Series was, in fact, delicious. The author, Melissa Schroeder, certainly showed us she knows her way around a storyline, character development, and making romcoms actually that. Light and witty and this is exactly what Delicious does. Chapter after chapter there is something that draws you in, engages, then leaves you with a smile, followed by repeating this for each chapter.
The main characters, Ginger Jesus and

A sweet, handsome cupcake baker in love with his best friend’s little sister. A dedicated chemo nurse in love with her brother’s best friend and business partner.

Each holds back thinking the other only has platonic feelings. Until Allison and her friends tie one on and Ed is her designated driver, who gets more than he bargains for.

It’s a pretty quick read, and utterly predictable. But that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. It’s a classic romance trope, but it’s sweet and satisfying— like a cupcake

Just what I needed, a fun lighthearted sexy romance. You just can't go wrong with a sexy former military ginger that bakes. Ed has the hots for his best friend's sister, for years, and is finally realizing it's reciprocal. Allison calls Ed by the funniest nickname, but only in her head. She's been crushing on Ed for numerous years, her friends know it but she just needs the right circumstance for things to get rolling. Loved the relaxed and caring relationship they have, it gets better once they ...more

Allison has been in love with Ed forever. Ed has been in love with her since he moved to San Antonio with his best friends, one being her brother Harry. Harry is very protective of his sister and Ed is intimidated enough to not upset his friendship balance. Well he takes her home after she has been drinking with her besties and stays in case she needs him. Staying on her couch is not an option for a 6’4” guy so he sleeps in her king sized bed with her. So what will happen when Harry finds out wh ...more

Delicious is definitely Delicious! I couldn't decide if it was the hot military men or the yummy cupcakes but I am definitely addicted.
First of all, I had high hopes considering this is the first in Melissa Schroeder's Camo and Cupcakes. She doesn't disappoint. While these stories fall more under the style of contemporary romance compared to Mel's other books, the scenes are spot on and the dialogue is hilarious. I loved it so much I also purchased a copy for my personal library. I can'

Allison and Ed have a long standing friendship which seems doomed to never be anything more. But cupcakes and friendship are the start to this romance. There has been an attraction between these two for years, but being the sister of Ed's best friend means they can't act on the feelings neither one knows about. For Ed this feeling of love has been a recent thing, for Allison it has been a crush from teenage years. They are both adults now, but will they be allowed to act on their feelings with o ...more

Not only did the cupcakes make me salivate, Ed is definitely drool worthy. Ed and Allison had held onto a hidden attraction for years and one drunken night provides them with the opportunity to reveal their hidden desires. This is a light hearted story with intense attraction and funny little puns. EJ, Allison and Savannah are a hoot. 3 best friends who don't hold back, and are as close as sisters. A short read that I did not want to put down and written in Melissa style with mouth watering sens ...more

I love this story of Ed and Allison. The slow build up over the time before the story makes it all the more sweet. Ed is sexy beyond words. Allison is fierce and fun. She is fun loving with great friends and a good family. There is humor, there is spice. All of the pieces fit together so well, just like Ed and Allison. I love the backstory. Ed's life's work is fresh and interesting. Ed's friends, Allison's family, all strong characters that help build the story.

Author's Warning: This story includes so much sweetness from the strawberry lemonade cupcakes to the sexy giant of a baker you might end up with cavities.

I say, Bring on the cavities! This was a fun and sweet brother's best friend romance. The characters are wonderful and the author keeps you engaged, hoping for Allison and Ed (Sunshine and Ginger Jesus) to finally get their happily ever after. I can't wait to read the rest of the books in the Camos and Cupcakes series.

Delicious the first book in Melissa Schroeder's new Camos & Cupcakes series certainly lived up to its name. As it was deliciously sweet and fun to read, and I loved it. Plus, the characters were great, and I adored the Harry Potter references. So if you're looking for a fast paced, sweet story. That also has a big dash of sexy and a former military man who knows how to bake. Then this is the perfect book for you.

Would happily recommend.

Talk about a sweet treat! Ed and Allison will have you in their corner. Ed has a thing for Allison and what he doesn't know is that Allison has been into him since she was thirteen. All it takes is one drunken night to put into play all of their feelings but will the bro code come into play when Harry catches them together ruining what was starting to become a promising relationship?

This story was over far sooner than I'd have liked. Not that it was too short, but more because I bulldozed through it!
Allison is a loveable character, who's crush happens to be her brother's best friend. I'm sure we've all had a secret crush at some point, and it's written so wonderfully. Ed is in the same boat as Allison, but neither of them realise. Once they do, there's no going back. Sparks fly and sexy times flow.
Btw, I'd love an Ed cupcake, they sound amazing!

Ed and Allison were so good together. Sweet, sexy, romantic, and funny.

This was such a fun, light hearted read. Ed (Ginger Jesus) and Allison (Strawberry Lemonade) each had what they thought was an unrequited lust.

Who knew a couple of margaritas and a few shots would end up taking them down an unexpected road?

This book will leave you feeling lighter, and with a smile on your face.

This book is funny, sweet and sexy. Allison has had a crush on Ed for years and little did she know that he felt the same way about. One night with the girls and drinks makes all of Allison's and Ed's dreams become a reality. Good story and well put together. All of the characters have great chemistry together.

This book hooked me from the start. The snarky and funny way the characters talk and think had me devouring this book like Allison eats Ed's cupcakes. The characters really made this book entertaining and though it's a pretty quick read, I felt like I really knew them by the end. If you're a fan of frosting and enchiladas with your happy ending, this book will leave you sighing in delight.

I highly recommend this quick read. It is like a delicious cupcake covered with decadently sexy frosting. The characters have been in love with each other for years but didn't admit it until one night. One fantastic night and it all comes together.
