If you are looking for a diverse set of love stories that deliver sweetness and emotions, look no further than Graham’s Delicacies.
Six people and three love stories all in one bakery.
Jen goes to work, agonizes over college, and looks forward to the stolen moments in the kitchen, where she can watch Emilie bake love into every donut, cake, and brownie. Their delicate friendship takes a step towards a budding romance. But will Jen’s impulsiveness help their romance surviving its first hurdle?
James has never been kissed but he wants to, especially by Sam, who he can’t talk to without turning into a little jerk, and who is made of all the good stuff. Will James’ insecurity in his inexperience ever allow him to make the move to kiss the boy?
Alex won’t let some foodie with a video camera bash their beloved bakery, even if it means they have to be petty. Except they’re nowhere ready for Yujin, the one who got away, and the one attempting to woo them. Will Alex’s second impression of Yujin let them see the sincerity in the bashful king.

(Disclaimer: I received this book from the author. This has not impacted my review which is unbiased and honest.)
Graham’s Delicacies made me swoon. I don’t normally read a ton of romance books, so this book definitely brought me back to my nostalgic paranormal romance days. But even more so, the stories bring the heat, whether it be with a few explicit scenes (see content warnings), or the passionate love between characters. If you are a fan of diverse swoony and emotional stories, with a sprinkling of baking and smokiness, then definitely check out Graham’s Delicacies.
Graham’s Delicacies is about as sweet as can be. Whether it be the beautiful cover, the supportive relationships, or the baked goods, it delivers a book that will charm you. So many of my comments just talk about how cute and how squished my heart is from goodness and sweetness. Definitely check this out if you want some romance in your life all rooted in diversity, inclusiveness, and love.
