Not So Cookie Cutter (2019) Aidan Wayne

Not So Cookie CutterJerrell is content being second baker, but he doesn’t mind taking over the kitchen when his co-worker is out sick.

What he doesn’t expect is to be called out front so a customer can talk to him.

He clasped his hands behind his back, at-ease stance so he wouldn’t cross his arms. He’d been told enough times that it made him look like a thug, so he tried to avoid doing it.

Jerrell is a big guy, and in shape, and so people have expectations. Because he doesn’t fulfill those expectations, no one ever wants to see him more than once. So that’s your relationship impediment: he doesn’t expect anyone to want him for himself.

He’s also incredibly sweet and obviously loves what he does (and is good at it).

Rafi took in the counter, already set with Jerrell’s food scale and stand mixer, and the butter and eggs Jerrell had left out so that they’d warm to room temperature.

What I liked best about this story is that although we discover what Jerrell is feeling, we are shown the most important parts, like him getting hit on at the gym, or how he is easily distracted yet good at his job.

It’s very sweet AND all the boinking was fade to black! And for a novella, the other characters had distinct personalities (especially Melody) which is always lovely.
