"I'm face-down in forty glorious inches of well-endowed cake, seriously reassessing my life choices, when suddenly I hear it. The voice that launched a thousand teenage boy-band dreams. My #1 crush, Drew Delaney himself."

Ten years ago, Drew was boy-band royalty: the subject of a million teenage fantasies - and the guy next door. He was so far out of my league, I couldn't see him for stars, but now I'm back in town for our high-school reunion, guess who I run into but Mr. Right-Now himself...

Older. Hotter. And still sexy enough to make me forget about the glittery white frosting currently smeared across my chest.

Sparks are flying, and so are my panties, and soon, our trip down memory lane has taken a detour to 'oh my god, don't stop!'. Population: me.

But can I turn Mr. Right-Now into Mr. Forever? Or will crazed fans, vicious yoga moms, and three dozen flesh-toned popsicles (don't ask) doom our romance to the 'Where are they now?' section of MTV's greatest hits?

Fun, sweet, and a whole lot of laughsMr. Right-Now is every fangirl’s dream come true. This book will make your mouth water for reasons that involve food and a very sexy man!

We all swooned over our favorite celebrities back in high school—A-list actors, rock stars, and the fan favorite, boy band members. Then maybe meeting them and making them fall in love with us, as you do. Our heroine in this story has been through that, too; the only difference is she’s actually met her favorite celebrity because he’s her next door neighbor and her best friend’s big brother. Not that her fantasies came true when she was in high school, of course. On that score, we’re on even ground.

When a famous TV chef opens a new bakery near Maggie Hayes’s bakery in Brooklyn, her business fails and she goes back to Philly to lick her wounds and regroup. Just when she thinks she’s reached the lowest of lows, she bumps into Drew Delaney, former boy band heartthrob and the man of Maggie’s teenage fantasies… while her face is getting intimate with a phallic-shaped cake.

Despite the less than cute meet-cute, the two hit it off and are mutually interested in hot fun. Maggie isn’t sure she’s ready for something so serious after she had her heart broken when her business failed, but as she spends more time with Drew, she’s having more doubts of leaving Philly for New York again.

This book has flirty banter, dirty talk, and sweet, sweet conversations (often involving actual sweets). Drew and Maggie have an instant connection and palpable spark that goes deeper and more intense as they get to know each other more than they did when they were kids.

I couldn’t resist Drew Delaney! The man knows how to get to your heart and into your panties. He’s sexy and fun and will do anything for Maggie. And the man is genuinely nice. Nothing better than a genuinely nice man who can sing, dance, and talk dirty.

And Maggie is amazing. I admire her resilience after that bump in the road. She does have moments of self-deprecation, but she continues to keep her head up and work hard to reach her dream. And her pastries? Yum! I want some!

Mr. Right-Now is a quick, light, and fun story packed full of fun scenes and sexy times to keep you entertained the whole journey.

I kinda want to read about Drew’s sister, McKenna now…
