Thank you to Helena Hunting, Forever, and Netgalley for the advance reader copy of Kiss My Cupcake, releasing on August 11th.
I absolutely adore Helena Hunting’s books and this new release is awesome. It has the perfect quirkiness that Helena brings to her books.
Check out the Goodreads synopsis…
“As two neighborhood shop owners battle for business, they prove opposites attract in this outrageously funny romantic comedy from the USA Today bestselling author of Meet Cute.
Blaire Calloway has planned every Instagram-worthy moment of her cupcake and cocktails shop launch down to the tiniest detail. What she didn’t plan on? Ronan Knight and his old-school sports bar next door opening on the very same day. He may be super swoony, but Blaire hasn’t spent years obsessing over buttercream and bourbon to have him ruin her chance at success.
From axe throwing (his place) to frosting contests (hers), Blaire and Ronan are constantly trying to one-up each other in a battle to win new customers. But with every clash, there’s also an undeniable chemistry. When an even bigger threat to their business comes to town, they’re forced to call a temporary time-out on their own war and work together. And the more time Blaire spends getting to know the real Ronan, the more she wonders if it’s possible to have her cupcake and eat it too.”
Check out my more detailed thoughts below…
- Characters: Blaire and Ronan are the main characters of this love story. Blaire is the quirky main character of Kiss My Cupcake, she has distanced herself from her weird family and is opening her own cupcake business. Ronan runs the neighbouring business and quickly turns on the charm. Blaire quickly falls into competing for customers, business, and ultimately who has the better bar.
- Setting: The setting truly jumps between the two bars, Buttercream and Booze which is Blaire’s bar. B&B sells the cutest cupcakes and fancy cocktails. Ronan’s bar is the Knight Cap which has the classic pub foods, beer and for fun axe throwing!
- Romance: I absolutely adored the chemistry that Blaire and Ronan had. This story is that classic enemies to lovers story where you cannot but wait with bated breath for the couple to finally get together!
Kiss My Cupcake receives five out of five stars.
