All's Fair in Love and Cupcakes - Betty St Amant
Definitely a sweet-tooth worthy surprise!

“All’s Fair in Love and Cupcakes” had one of those sweet heroes that literally made my hopeless romantic heart go pitter-patter. Lucas loves Kat with a beautiful, sacrificial love that is stuck in limbo between “best friends” and “something more”. I couldn’t help but ache for him just a little and wish he would walk off the pages of the book and be the “boy next door”.

Between the combination of sugary cupcake sweetness and kisses that would make any girl swoon, this novel did nothing short of entertain and delight me from beginning to end. Sassy humor with a spunky story line, I cheered for Kat and wanted her to see her dream come true—and yet realize that love was directly in front of her…if she would only open up her eyes and her mouth to communicate it! Much can be said for the romantic tension, but I’ll leave it at that for now.

Kat is loveable and sweet, though she has her faults and I anxiously counted the pages until she realized it’s not just about the cupcakes, it has never been just about the cupcakes. I loved the themes threading through the book and the sacrificial surrender of each of the characters in the end, in the face of their ultimate desire.

All together, thumbs up and I will eagerly wait for more!

This review is my honest opinion. Thanks to the publishers and Netgalley for my copy to review.
