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.

Lucas and Kat have been best friends in the small town of Bayou Bend, Louisiana for years.  As friendship turns to potential romance, each is afraid to make the first move.  Personal insecurities and career aspirations threaten the couple before platonic love has a chance to bloom.  As critical decisions must be made about living situations and employment, Lucas and Kat find themselves facing choices that can either bind them together or rip them apart forever.

All’s Fair in Love and Cupcakes is an absolutely delightful clean, romantic treat.  The characters are believable, likeable, and struggle with issues familiar to the heart of most of us.  This is the perfect novel to read when you want to relax and reflect on the many blessings love and friendship can bring.
