Synopsis from Goodreads
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.
Kiss My Cupcake is such fun, adorable, cute and smexy with a helping of sass to top it off.
Blaire is an amazing character; cute and sassy with her own unique style and vision. She is surprisingly well-adjusted considering her family background. If you think you’re family is messed up wait until you get a load of Blaire’s. Stubbornly independent, Blaire is determined to see her charming cake/cocktail shop succeed. What she doesn’t count on is competition in the form of axe throwing in the neighbourhood bar next door to her shop.
Ronan is stunning and hilarious with a mischievous sense of humour. Another character with a unique sense of style, plaid has never been so appealing! Taking over the running of his grandfather’s bar in order to update it and make his dream of opening a brewery a reality, Ronan is equally determined to succeed as Blaire.
Despite their obvious attraction, Blaire and Ronan wage a battle for the title of Best Bar when a famous influencer hosts a competition. However, they are forced to work together when a large chain restaurant moves into the neighbourhood. Their collaboration and initiative bring Blaire and Ronan closer together in more ways than one.
With the best bar competition heating up how will the budding relationship between Blaire and Ronan survive, especially as they both have their own emotional baggage clouding their judgement!
