Baking Me Crazy
I'm Levi Buchanan, and until five years ago, I thought the legend of my family's curse was a load of crazy, Southern nonsense.
No curse can make you fall in love at first sight. No curse can force a true, deep, passionate, all-consuming love that will haunt you all the days of your life.
Then I met Jocelyn Abernat...more

Baking Me Crazy is my first book by Karla Sorensen and I enjoyed it so much. I love that it’s written in Penny Reid’s Green Valley World and Levi & Joss were such great characters. Their friends to lovers romance was a joy to read.
Levi Buchanan comes from a family that’s cursed. It’s a love curse and when you meet the one, you fall in love at first site. Levi never believed the curse to be true…until he laid eyes on Jocelyn Abernathy and fell hard.
Jocelyn was going through a lot wh ...more
"Levi Buchanan," I said. "It's nice to meet you, Joss."
Then, then she gave me a real smile—white teeth, pink lips, tiny dimple on the right side—and I never, ever got my heart back.
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 cr ...more
I adored Baking Me Crazy, I loved the romance so much!It is a friends to lovers romance which is set in the same universe as Penny Reid's Winston Brother Series.It was fast pace,heartwarming and sweet romance!
I'm in love with Levi and Joss.Their romance is sweet and cute.I loved their moments together and I have butterflies in my stomach with these two.I seriously couldn't get enough of them!
If you are looking for a swooning romance Levi and Joss are the perfect couple!
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.”… "He looks scary." I s ...more

Baking Me Crazy is ... well, what is it not? It's beautiful. It's thoughtful. It's so well-written that I'm jealous of Sorensen's pen. (Or fingers if I assume she typed this book. Anyway ...)
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 th ...more
Baking Me Crazy is the story of Levi and Joss. Levi’s family has a curse, one that makes them fall in love at first sight. Five years ago Levi met Jocelyn and knew she was the one, but she wasn’t ready for a relationship and they became friends. Now when a handsome stranger makes some moves on Jocelyn, Levi realizes it’s time to make his move, or lose her forever.
I went into this book blind, with an open mind and it really paid off. I was skeptical about books written in Penny Reid’s u ...more

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 Karla Sorensen'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 ...more
"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 word ...more
-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.
-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 suppo ...more
In general, I like Joss’ character and learning her POV on having this disability. I also love that she’s introverted, sassy, and competitive.
Levi is nice, and a good best friend, but I did not like the romance. I really hate the friends-to ...more

Levi Buchanan didn't think that his family's ''curse'' to fall madly in all-consuming love only once in their lives was real - until he met Jocelyn Abernathy.
Jocelyn or Joss as she likes to be called wasn't having a great time when Levi saw her for the first time and asked her out on a date. She was still recovering from the consequences of Transverse Myelitis, an inflammation to the spinal cord that led her to ...more
* * * * A Wonderful Start to the new Smartypants Romance Publishing Group. This entry tackles real-life issues with the flavor of Reid's special sauce, interpreted masterfully by Karla Sorensen. I foresee many, many winners from this new writing group.

This was such an enjoyable read. The characters are well written, likeable and down to earth. Joss and Levi’s heartwarming story felt authentic and it had the perfect recipe for the makings of a delightfully entertaining romantic comedy: it was sweet, sexy and fun, with a smidge of angst thrown in for good measure.
This was my first Karla Sorensen read, but it certainly won’t be my last!

Baking Me Crazy is, sadly, boring. To me it is more clean romance. I guess my problem is connecting with the push and pull between Levi and Joss. Levi waited for 5 years before he made a move to Joss.
I need some reason or plot why they can not move their romance faster. Somethibg angsty, dramatic, suspense, swoony wothy courting will also hel ...more
"There is no crying in the bakery."
Take some of the best friends to lovers trope, add some of Penny Reid’s universe with a pinch of spicy scenes, and Voila, a perfect recipe! Baking Me Crazy has it all and more. I think I haven’t finished a romance book this quickly in a while, and it’s all thanks to Sorensen’s writing. Prior to starting this book, I was intrigued to see how this concept would work: different romance authors all writing within the same ...more
Such a treat. Pun intended.
When Penny Reid announced she was starting a new line called Smartypants Romance, and other authors would be writing novels in her Knitting In the City/Winston Brothers world, I was intrigued. I was also somewhat apprehensive because I wasn't sure that the other authors would maintain the Pennyverse that I had come to love. I should have had faith that Penny would not let that happen. If this first book is any indication of what's to come, we are al ...more
This is this first book published by SmartyPants Romance and it was such a joy to read this story.
I LOVE the friends-to-lovers trope!
Levi and Jocelyn were great characters.
I loved their chemistry, bantering and history.
Great start to a new series!
