Kiss My Cupcake by Helena Hunting | Book Review

Is there anything so wonderful as sinking into a book by a trusted author? Helena Hunting certainly makes my list of trusted contemporary romance authors. Kiss My Cupcake was a book I seriously could have read in a single sitting if I did not have a number of different responsibilities to fulfill. In fact, this book immediately drew me in and I found myself thinking about it when I should have been paying more attention to other things. Also? I walked away from this book wanting to eat cupcakes and drink alcohol — to be fair, that’s my normal state of things.

Blaire and Ronan operate specialty bars next door to each other. You could say they are rivals, particularly as their meeting did not start off on the right foot. In fact, they begin competing with each event bigger than the last. Blaire sets up a comedy night. Ronan follows suit by having a live band. The competition increases when there is the chance to be put on the map by being featured by a YouTube celebrity named Tori. As it happens, however, there’s a threat to both Buttercream & Booze and The Knight Cap coming in so Blaire and Ronan must team up to fend off the threat. Turns out, there’s some undeniable chemistry and attraction between Blaire and Ronan. I was completely here for it as I gobbled up every page of Kiss My Cupcake.

I love a good enemies to lovers trope. Hunting absolutely nails it with this book. We see there’s the initial attraction on both sides at the very first meeting between Blaire and Ronan. We know something is going to happen between them. How we get there is the delectable treat. This book has some pretty spicy scenes that are well written and not at all awkward. I just loved how the romance played out and how it all came together in the end. You can’t help but adore both Blaire and Ronan — especially when you see what Blaire’s had to overcome to get to where she is. Also, Ronan’s Gramps is THE best. I really loved this book. I think if you’re in need of a contemporary romance you should give this one a shot.
