Paris Daillencourt is a recipe for disaster.
Despite his passion for baking, constant self-doubt has left him a curdled, directionless mess. So, when his roommate enters him in Bake Expectations, the nation’s favourite baking show, Paris is sure he’ll be the first one sent home.
And yet, not only does he impress the judges and win week one’s challenge – he also catches the eye of fellow contestant, Tariq Hassan. Sure, he’s the competition, but he’s also incredibly cute with more confidence than Paris could ever hope to have.
But when the show’s vicious fanbase confirms his worst anxieties, neither his growing romance with Tariq nor his success in the competition can keep Paris’s fear of failure from spoiling his happiness.
If Paris can find the strength to face the chorus of hecklers that live in his brain, he’ll realise it’s the sweet things in life that he really deserves.
