by Helena Hunting (Goodreads Author)
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.
This books is so deliciously sweet! It’s like cotton candy and cupcakes. I loved it so much!
Helena Hunting is such an amazing writer. There is not one story of hers that I didn’t absolutely love. This is no exception. The story was adorable and super well thought out. All of the characters were amazing and hilarious! I laughed out loud several times while reading this one. Also, the mention of a beaver had me rolling. This enemies to lovers has it all!!
Love the concept of the bar and the bakery. Blaire and Ronan are two completely opposite people. Living to totally different lives. Blaire’s family is in the restaurant business and want her to join their forces. Ronan is reopening a bar that was his grandfather’s most prized possession (besides Ronan’s grandmother). Both are pushing back at each other and I love that cupcakes and axe throwing brought them together. That shit is adorable!
We are living in some dark times right now, but this book took that away for awhile. It is exactly the bright spot I needed. This book is adorable, fun, and fresh! I loved everything about it!!
Five stars from me ❤
