All's fair in Love and Cupcakes By Betsy St. Amant

Kat inspected rows of the same old cupcakes. They seemed to blink back at her, as if they knew she was capable of so much more.
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.

This was a really hard book to read. I struggled with every page. It was way to predictable and the romance was not to my liking. It some places I thought maybe it was going to turn around but I got fooled. It has some potential but, I am so sad to say it was a 2.5 star book. That is just my opinion. I am so sorry I did not care for this book.
I was given a copy of this book by the publisher for my honest review.

  3. Hi Mary! The idea of this book sounds good to me. I hate to hear that it wasn't a good read. Thank you for your honest review.

  4. Your honest review is appreciated, Mary. I doubt I'd enjoy this book either especially since I don't care for books to be so predictable.
