Goodreads Synopsis:

As a little girl, Komomo Ninomiya delighted in picking on Natsu Azumi, the son of her family's pastry chef. Ten years later, when the family fortune is lost and she has no place to live, Komomo encounters Natsu again in her hour of need. Now that Natsu is a master pastry chef in his own right, he'll help Komomo-but only if she works for him at his new confiserie!

Both Komomo and Natsu are resolute in their stance that they are not in love with each other, even though everyone else around them thinks otherwise. Now that Komomo’s fortunes and arranged fiancĂ© have returned, a romance between a pâtissier and a princess seems even less likely. But Komomo is determined to pursue her own path in life when she realizes what she wants most.


This fantastic series draws to a very nice close. It didn’t feel rushed to me, and it worked out very nicely in my opinion.
There’s some love-triangle drama involved, but that doesn’t take as much precedence. And I don’t think it matters as much when Komomo’s father tries telling her what to do and she straight-up refuses. She even makes Natsu pay for being such a jerk to her, and I think he makes it up to her in a very deserving way. It is cheesy, for sure, but it’s adorable, and I love the way it all wraps up.
This was a super fun series, and I really love the author's work. I hope they release everything else of hers they can; I would eat it all up.
