All's Fair in Love and Cupcakes

Betsy St. Amant All's Fair in Love and Cupcakes

Book info and review
About the book:

Kat Varland has had enough of chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry.

At twenty-six years old, Kat is still living in the shadows of her family in Bayou Bend, Louisiana. Still working shifts at her Aunt Maggie's bakery. Still wondering what to do with her passion for baking and her business degree. And still single.

But when Lucas Brannen, Kat's best friend, signs her up for a reality TV bake-off on Cupcake Combat, everything Kat ever wanted is suddenly dangled in front of her: creative license as a baker, recognition as a visionary . . . and a job at a famous bakery in New York.

As the competition heats up, Lucas realizes he might have made a huge mistake. As much as he wants the best for Kat, the only thing he wants for himself---her---is suddenly in danger of slipping away.

The bright lights of reality cooking wars and the chance at a successful career dazzle Kat's senses and Lucas is faced with a difficult choice: help his friend achieve her dreams . . . or sabotage her chances to keep her in Louisiana.

My thoughts: ALL'S FAIR IN LOVE AND CUPCAKES is a totally cute contemporary romance. I love reading contemporary romances, and am so glad they are beginning to make more of an appearance in the market place. 

ALL'S FAIR IN LOVE AND CUPCAKES is a light-hearted story of a woman stuck baking plain old vanilla, chocolate, or strawberry cupcakes. No German chocolate. No dark chocolate. No lemon. She needed a little variety in her life, and she wasn't getting it--until Lucas steps in and signs her up for a baking competition. Which all the plain, normal people discourage her from doing. But her flavorful friends are all one-hundred percent behind her. 

I totally enjoyed reading ALL'S FAIR IN LOVE AND CUPCAKES and highly recommend this book to anyone (like me) who can't get enough contemporary romance. It's laugh out loud funny in places. Recommended.
