Litfuse Review: All's Fair In Love and Cupcakes by:Betsy St.Amant
About the Book:
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.

Kat Varland's dream has always been to show the world what she is made out of and how incredibly delicious her cupcakes really are. But apparently that is too much to ask of anyone. Lucus Brannen, Kat's best friend and the man that is secretly in love with her hopes to one day let his true feelings be known to the lady of his dreams. But he has to wait for that chance at least until this cupcake competition is over.
Kat is actually going to get her chance to show the world what she is made of. She goes nuts trying to remember all the details and she insists Lucas come along for the ride. Lucas soon realizes that Kat winning this competition would mean his dream for the two of them is over because it will change everything. He is stuck in a hard situation because he wants to help the woman he loves but he doesn't want to lose her in the process.
This story is a sweet one in more ways than one. I love anything "bakery" related and it weaves in a sweet schoolboy type romance, where for once it is the guy in the relationship that is worried he will lose his love forever. In this one the tables get turned, Love it!
