All's Fair In Love and Cupcakes - Betsy St. Amant (with a giveaway!)

4 Stars

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 REVIEW -
Oh this book was so adorable! I loved the writing style right from the beginning. It was very Chick-lit-ish and I love that. This story was very romantic. I was blushing at times (and there was no sex!). I love when a book can make you blush with no sex.

Both the female and male lead characters were great, I loved them both. They were very likable and very believable.  Lucas was the kind of man you fall in love with instantly, I was rooting for him from the beginning. But - have you ever wanted to yell at a book - "JUST TELL HER YOU LOVE HER!!!!!" but then if he did that the book would only be 5 pages long LOL.

The POV switched back and forth between him and Kat and I like when books do that. It lets us see what both are thinking. And I like to see what's in the guys head as well.

Very nice little love story! Fun and quick. I would definitely read another by this author!

Thank you Litfuse for send me this e-book for my honest review!
