All’s Fair in Love and Cupcakes by Betsy St. Amant

Book Synopsis:

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.

All's Fair in Love and Cupcakes is a great read when you are looking for that sweet romance and some flavorful fun with cupcakes! I love to bake and love cupcakes so I was hooked from the cover and title. Throw in a lil reality tv baking competition and what else can you ask for? Oh, a bit of romance! I really fell for the two main characters Kat and Lucas. They have been best friends for forever and both are feeling the lines blur but neither has the guts to say anything. This is where Lucas has this great plan to submit Kat for a cupcake baking show. Kat has really low self-esteem and feels she will always be stuck in the little town they grew up in making plain cupcakes - Strawberry, Vanilla and Chocolate. Lucas wants her to finally see how good at cupcake baking Kat really is. The storyline is fresh, fun and flows together very well. I had a hard time putting this book down and look forward to reading more by Betsy St. Amant.

I give this book a 4.5 out of 5 stars!
