About the Author
T Neilson writes flirty, silly, contemporary m/m romance featuring recovering addicts, mental health problems, and abuse survivors. Honestly, honestly, the books are silly.
Okay, maybe they’re also a little angsty in parts. After all, T grew up in the middle of nowhere rural British Columbia, in a family where everything was totally fine and nobody was an alcoholic, so she's used to living the angsty life. And, yeah, sometimes her books get a little heavy. But her books are also full of good things like mugs of coffee, and hamburgers on the grill, and nights at the beach, and cozy sweaters, and getting mush-mouth in front of a cutie, and his brain betraying him with a freudian slip, and that gorgeous guy he never thought he had a chance with suddenly, whoa, in his arms.
Because, I mean come on. Just because we have heavy stuff to deal with doesn't mean we can't get a happy ending too.

Will a bitter bite from the past spoil a sweet romance?

Tristan Love, the youngest of seven brothers, is back in his hometown. He’s left the New York food scene and an abusive relationship behind him, but he holds his love of French pastries close to his heart and is determined to put his skills to use in a bakery of his own.

Returning to his childhood home means his meddlesome brother Simon will butt into his business, but before the bakery even opens its doors, Tristan’s delectable creations have the town’s mouths watering, and Jake, a cute mechanic, asks Tristan out. It all seems worthwhile….

That is, until the bakery burns down, Jake’s criminal past comes to light, and Tristan’s nasty ex rears his head where he is decidedly not wanted.

Sweet Nothings
Overall 
 
4.0
Sweet Nothings is book one in the Amuse Bouche series by T Neilson. An amuse bouche is an appetiser to provide a glimpse of the chefs style of cooking. It is the perfect descriptor for this delightful short read by a new-to-me author. Sweet Nothings can be read and enjoyed over a relaxing afternoon and gives the reader a taste of this author’s writing style. 

Tristan Love has been in New York for the past five years. He left Lake Balmoral to complete a pastry chef apprenticeship and get out from under the weight of his small home town with six older brothers intent on interfering a little too much in his life. Stuck in a toxic controlling relationship with Christopher, a big city lawyer, Tristan decides to take back his life and return to his roots. Opening a bakery there is a dream come true and the perfect opportunity to start fresh. 

Jake Rutherford has come to Lake Balmoral to work in his sisters auto shop. Having plead guilty to arson and spending five years in jail he comes out to find an unforgiving world where job opportunities are non existent. Using his skill as a mechanic in the workshop feels like the second chance he needs to grab onto. Maybe his luck is finally changing. It sure seems like it when he bumps into a sweet shy guy in the bread aisle of the local supermarket. 

I loved the fact that after all he’d been through Tristan was so open to trust Jake, despite the opinion of others. Their chemistry was sizzling from the first time they met, but there was also a lovely sense of acceptance of each others history and the possibility of a future together. When a delusional Christopher comes to town determined to win Tristan back there are fireworks of a different sort and Jake just might get caught in the crossfire. Earning the town and the brothers  trust will be difficult, but there’s an inherent goodness that shines through Jake that becomes impossible to ignore, the past be damned. 

Sweet Nothings was a thoroughly enjoyable story of two men in need of redemption and forgiveness, not the least from themselves. I found myself unable to put the book down until the highly satisfying conclusion. Recommended to lovers of sweet romance with just enough bite to keep you engaged throughout.
