Publisher's Summary

If opposites do actually attract, then Gunnar Erickson and Frankie Reeves take the cake.

Frankie Reeves is complicated, even though she won’t admit it. She fills her days working as an ER nurse, taking care of her mom, and searching for the father she never knew. Anything else has no place in her perfectly compartmentalized, purposefully simple life. Attachments? No thank you. She has no time for that.

Gunnar Erickson recently moved to Green Valley to train at Viking MMA with his brother Cage. Being the youngest of the Erickson clan, he’s always felt like he has something to prove, and now that he’s finished with college, it’s his time to shine. But before he can step into the ring, a freak accident sends him to the ER and into the care of one Frankie Reeves.

While he’s immediately smitten, she pretends to be unfazed by this six-foot-three, 230-pound beef cake. Gunnar sets out to prove to Frankie that not only does she like him more than she wants to admit, but he’s not the uneducated, brute she assumes he is. To Frankie, he’s the worst kind of complication, but that doesn’t make it easy to stay away.

Beef Cake is a full-length contemporary romance, can be heard as a stand-alone, and is book four in the Donner Bakery series, Green Valley World, Penny Reid Book Universe.

So disappointed.

This story had so much promise! I was really excited to read it, but as the story continued, I grew to dislike Frankie more and more. I did finish it, but the way she treated Gunnar towards the end was grating. It's lovely to find a male protagonist who is loving and kind, however it was disappointing to have the female character treat him like garbage. I would have actually have loved for him to find another romantic interest other than Frankie.

well narrated, but dragged

found most of this dragged for me. took too long to get going, and even the more of a fizzle. thought leads were well suited, and attraction believable, as well as difficulties in relationship. Reakly great narrators, they basically saved items kept me listening (with a lot of skipping through female character). only minor thing for male narrator, his female voice for female lead had wrong intonation, not matching situation - and didn't really align with female narrator's way of expressing character - so felt like it was for a completely different person.
