It’s time to grab some hot chocolate, wrap up in a blanket, snuggle up and get cosy because…
Noah and Spencer are absolutely everything and their story is just like a hug in book form. It’s a super low-angst slice of life with a school bake off, a bisexual awakening over buttercream, best friend’s brother, adorable ghost cupcakes, interfering friends, and lots of sweetness and steam.
I’m so excited to take you back to Heather Bay and I hope you’ll love this cosy, autumnal romance as much as I do.
Plus the audio will be coming soon because Dan has already finished recording it! I’ll keep you posted with updates and let you know as soon as it’s out.
Dreaming about my best friend’s brother is one thing, him actually falling for me is another.
Baking cupcakes for the science department bake-off shouldn’t strike fear into the heart of chemistry teacher Noah, but his previous record hasn’t exactly been glowing. In an attempt to stave off another year in last place, Noah turns to the one man who might be able to help him: his best friend’s older brother, Spencer.
Noah’s had a crush on the vibrant and sporty footballer turned baker for years, but the chances of anything happening between them are slim to none. Spencer is caring, funny, gorgeous… and totally straight.
Spencer has never thought about dating men before, but after watching Noah lick buttercream off a whisk he’s suddenly realising he’s not as straight as previously thought.
Revelations about his sexuality are one thing, but his footballing past being dragged into the present is another and Spencer isn’t sure which is more stressful. But he’s sure about one thing: he wants Noah in his life. Now all they have to do is figure out how to make their wishes come true.
Like I Wished is a hot and heart-warming best friend’s brother contemporary MM romance featuring adorable ghost cupcakes, a bisexual awakening over baking, gate-crashed first dates, gym-bro besties, and lots of hot chocolate.
It is book two in the Heather Bay series and while it can be read as a standalone, it’s best enjoyed as part of the series.
“If you are ever in need of a book to cheer you up and put a smile on your face, then here you go! Like I Wished, by Charlie Novak, was such a delight. Her books just make me feel like I am wrapped up in a blanket, with a cup of hot cocoa, in front of a fire, and with my fav book. Best feeling ever!!!!”Reading_ismyjam on Instagram
