All’s Fair in Love and CupcakesAll’s Fair in Love and Cupcakes || (Zondervan, September 2014)

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 fun book to read. Lucas and Kate are crazy about each other, but they didn’t really know how the other felt. Sometimes the way they acted got kind of annoying because, well I just thought a better attitude for each of them would have been a little more pleasant to read. I really enjoyed the TV Cupcake competition, and that is what makes the book worth reading, for me anyway. I was excited about the competition, and the scenes of the shows taping was full of interesting humor and excitement. And though it took me a while to get into the story at first, as the story unfolds. I began to enjoy it more and more. This would be a great book for you to read if you are looking for a light entertaining read.

I received this book from Litfuse to read and review. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 55.
