Can't Wait Wednesday - Paris Daillencourt is About to Crumble

“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which encourages fellow bloggers to spotlight upcoming releases that we’re excited about.  However, as Jill is no longer actively posting, from now on I’ll be linking to Can’t Wait Wednesday, hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings, which is a spinoff of the original WoW meme.

Today’s selection and book I’m excitedly awaiting is:

Paris Daillencourt is About to Crumble by Aexis Hall

Paris Daillencourt Is About to Crumble
(Winner Bakes All #2)

by Alexis Hall
Adult Fiction – Contemporary – Romance – LGBTQIA+
October 18th, 2022

From the bestselling author of Boyfriend Material comes a sweet and scrumptious romantic comedy about facing your insecurities, finding love, and baking it off, no matter what people say. 

Paris Daillencourt is a recipe for disaster. Despite his passion for baking, his cat, and his classics degree, constant self-doubt and second-guessing have 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.

But not only does he win week one’s challenge—he meets fellow contestant Tariq Hassan. Sure, he’s the competition, but he’s also cute and kind, with more confidence than Paris could ever hope to have. Still, neither his growing romance with Tariq nor his own impressive bakes can keep Paris’s fear of failure from spoiling his happiness. And when the show’s vicious fanbase confirms his worst anxieties, Paris’s confidence is torn apart quicker than tear-and-share bread.

But if Paris can find the strength to face his past, his future, and the chorus of hecklers that live in his brain, he’ll realize it’s the sweet things in life that he really deserves.

I adored both Boyfriend Material by Alexis Hall, as well as the first book in the Winner Bakes All series, Rosaline Palmer Takes The Cake, which means that I already have high hopes for Paris Daillencourt is About to Crumble.
And turns out Paris is an insecure mess with constant self-doubt and second-guessing? I already want to hug him so much and give him all the love he deserves and I haven’t even met him yet.
So ready for more baking shenanigans!
