All's Fair in Love and Cupcakes

All's Fair in Love and Cupcakes
Betsy St. Amant
Kat is working at her aunt's bakery. But her aunt has a plain vanilla type of bakery and Kat can envision so much more. She would love to branch out into other types of flavors beyond the 3 they carry. But she lacks the confidence to go for her dreams. Her best friend Lucas is always by her side, encouraging and helping her. He secretly signs her up for Cupcake Combat in hopes of boosting her confidence. 

This was such a mixed bag for me. I love Cupcake Wars, the premise of the story, and the beautiful cover art. I really didn't care for the mostly inner monologue the two main characters had. The book was very big on thinking and very small on action. I'm okay with lots of talking, but there really wasn't a lot of that. The couple fought constantly and constantly misunderstood each other. I actually liked Kat. While whiny and lacking in self-esteem, she redeemed herself. Lucas was mean to her to protect himself, didn't make wise decisions, and came across as overbearing. In summery, the book was a light fluffy read that was fun, but could have been great with a few changes.

I received this book free of charge from BookLook Bloggers in exchange for my honest review.
