The Mix-Up

The Mix-Up

A must-read romcom for 2022 – an uplifting romance that will make you laugh out loud


So funny and so moving. I could not stop reading" Sophie Cousens, author of This Time Next Year

Paige might bake wedding cakes for a living but that doesn't mean shes dreaming about her own perfect day. Far from it.

Trusting people is hard after she was badly let down by her family and boyfriend just when she needed them most. And to make things worse, her ex has just walked into her bakery with his new fiancée...

Needing a little no-strings-attached fun, Paige goes to a party where her friend knows just the guy - the guy in the black top.

There's just one problem. There are two men wearing black tops.

Noah was meant to be her perfect distraction...instead, he wants more than just a bit of fun. But could the wrong guy turn out to be the right choice?
