All's Fair in Love and Cupcakes - Book Review

All's Fair in Love and Cupcakes By Betsy St. Amant, is the story of a 26 year old woman named Kat Varland, who worked in her Aunt Maggie's Bakery in Bayou Bend, Louisiana. She was tired of the usual flavors of chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry cupcakes; She knew she could do so much more then this.
She had a business degree and a passion for baking, and was tired of living in her families shadow. Her life suddenly takes a change, when her best friend, Lucas Brannen, signs her up for a reality Tv-Bake off on Cupcake combat.
She was nervous and excited all in one, as all she wanted in her life was right their within arms reach. If she won the cupcake competition, she would get her creative license as a baker, recognition as a visionary, and even a job at a famous bakery in New York! But soon after the competition gets going,
and Kat is doing so well, Lucas realizes the mistake he made. The mistake of possibly losing Kat to New York, when he wanted her to himself all along.
Lucas is now faced with a decision, does he help Kat achieve her dreams,
or sabotage her chances in winning, so he can keep her Louisiana?

Read the book to find out ;-)

I really loved reading All's Fair in Love and Cupcakes. I sat all day reading it, wanting more and more. The story between Lucas and Kat, and their playful friendship/wanna be romance is cute and frustrating all in one. The back and forth between them makes you laugh because you get both sides of gender, thinking through the entire process. It's interesting to see how male and female think so differently.
And then you want them to hurry up and tell each other their feelings, because when you read each persons thoughts, it's clear they should be together. It's like you're watching a chick flick right in your own mind, as you read the story! I love books like that! This has been a truly fun read, the kind
of book if you're looking for something to sit back on the couch with, and enjoy a cup of coffee.
