If you are following my reviews, you already know I love Helena Hunting. Thanks to her books, I had too many sleepless nights with the mantra of ‘one more chapter’. As always I really enjoyed Kiss my Cupcake and through the book, I always had a smile on my face. I admit some parts made me laugh out loud, thank god I was at home 🙂
Blaire Calloway comes from a family of successful restauranteurs. She is a smart, ambitious, hardworking, and talented baker. Opening her cupcake and cocktails shop without the help of her family has been her dream and she was working hard towards owning her shop. Finally, Buttercream & Booze’s grand opening is close and everything going smoothly until hot lumberjack next door starts hammering her walls. Ronan Knight is helping his grandpa to redecorate his old-school sports bar to make it more approachable by the younger crowd. To cut back the cost, he is doing most of the things by himself. However, he is not aware that he is driving his next-door neighbor nuts with the noise and all that hammering so as you can imagine their first meeting wasn’t a pleasant one. Everything gets more interesting and contentious when Ronan decides to schedule his grand opening on the same day as Blaire. Starting with their openings, they are both in battle mode. Adding the ‘Best Bar’ contest by one of the most influential YouTubers in the mix, they are constantly trying to sabotage each other and create events that will move them further in the contest. However, when a big chain decides to open a restaurant on their block, soon they realize the only way they can survive is by joining forces. No worries their banter is still there, it only gets flirtier and hotter. I loved how their rivalry turns into an amazing friendship and when they give up fighting the attraction, it turns into a sweet, sizzling love story.
Kiss My Cupcake is a sweet, inspiring, face pacing story that will put a smile on your face from the beginning to the end. If you are looking for a light, drama free, summery read, this book might be just for you.
