Kiss My Cupcake by Helena Hunting

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.

5 out of 5 stars

Kiss My Cupcake was so sweet and entertaining! I loved the animosity between Blaire and Ronan and the awesome banter as their attraction built and sparks flew. I loved the ups and downs and playfulness!

I really liked Blaire and her fierceness to succeed on her own. Ronan was amazing and I loved his big heart and what he was trying to accomplish with his bar. I loved them meeting, all the bickering and innuendos, and the amusing pranks and fun barbs. There was a delightful slow burn happening as they get to know each other and feelings grew and I really enjoyed it. There's a playful antagonism that's simmering with chemistry underneath it all and I couldn't get enough of it.

This story was outright fun to read! It was light and easy with minor drama and a bit of angst. There's a nice amount of emotion mixed in as well. I loved the build to Ronan and Blair coming together, from that animosity turning more playful to the building heat. There were great secondary characters, some really hilarious moments, plus a really inviting storyline. Blaire's family is crazy and a bit over the top so they created some interesting scenes. I loved Ronan's grandfather and how charming he was, the bond they had together was great. I liked the competition element that was happening as well and how Ronan and Blair ended up working together. I thought the ending was wonderful with a fantastic epilogue, I totally got choked up. 

I was super excited to read this and was not disappointed. A lively and enchanting story with a sexy bar owner and cupcake queen! This book left me smiling and happy. I couldn’t read it fast enough!
