Publisher's Summary

As two neighborhood shop owners battle for business, they prove opposites attract in this "deliciously sweet and savory new romantic comedy" (Abby Jimenez, USA Today best-selling 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.

"Kiss My Cupcake is a laugh-out-loud romance full of charm, wit and magic. Ronan and Blaire will have you fall in love with their story from their very first encounter. A thoroughly delicious read." (LJ Shen, USA Today best-selling author)

"With a sweet, sassy heroine and a deliciously sexy hero, Kiss My Cupcake is romantic comedy perfection!" (Melanie Harlow, USA Today best-selling author)

Pleasantly surprised

I was quite surprised by how much I enjoyed this story. It was interesting to have the switch off between the 2 points of view, although I think the balance was a little off considering how little of the male POV we had versus the female lead. A sweet story and a satisfying ending. Laughed, blushed, and cried.

Fantastic story- but the male narrator :/

So this story is adorable- feel good in the way the best romance novels are. However , the male narrator is so awful that I literally just stopped in the first love scene between the main characters to write this review because he is completely ruining the story for me. I honestly plan on buying the broom because this story is so sweet ... but if you easily annoyed but certain narrators sample first.

Delicious in every way.....

This book has so many things to like about it. Helena Hunting always has a way of making you fall in love with her characters. Loved the way this couple started off and the love hate relationship they had going on. How they came together and became a support for each other. The Narrating was fantastic but just be aware Teddy isn’t in it as much I would’ve expected. However, Holly did an amazing job! Loved it!

Needed more Teddy Hamilton

Female narrator comprised 70% of the book and she was not very expressive or good IMO. Her Scottish accent was not good. The Ronan character was soooo adorable and the book would have been much better if he had narrated more.

Cute and Flirty

This one was entertaining and sweet, not as funny as some of other books I have read of Helena's but still a very enjoyable story. Kind of an enemy to lovers story. Narration is great, I love every book narrated by Teddy Hamilton.

Good Listen

I enjoyed this book, it dragged a bit in the middle and end, but overall I think this is worth a listen, maybe not a credit. I also expected more of Teddy Hamilton's narration and not as steamy as some of Teddy's other work. But I can appreciate the characters for how their written.

Sweet story!

What a sweet story (pun intended!)! I loved Teddy and Holly bringing Ronan and Blaire to life! Their chemistry and hijinks come to life and I absolutely love it! I love following along with these two and bringing their shops to life. This story was sweet, steamy and sexy and I loved it! Full of laughs and heart like all of Helena’s work! Would recommend this to anyone! Now I want to have a cupcake and throw some axes!

Sweet story but needed more Teddy

The story was nice and sweet but the narration definitely was not even. Teddy Hamilton's narration is only about 30 to 40% of the story. The sexual tension would have definately been more intense if more of the male part was spoken by Hamilton especially in the beginning.

4 stars!!!!!!!

I wasn't sure about this one, even through the first handful of chapters. I did start to warm up to it as it continued. By the end, I was all in story-wise. It was a pretty cute, sweet and heartwarming story. There were definitely some oddball characters that helped add to the story as well. All in all, I was happy with this one.

One complaint though. I guess when romances are dual narrated, I have a certain expectation that the book will more or less make this an even thing. Meaning that the narration will switch on & off between characters. That wasn't the case here. I supposed I should also admit that I'm a little biased since when it's a book that involves Teddy narrating, then I want to hear more of him narrating! He only narrated maybe 20% of this book.

Ugh

So much of this I did not like. Since graduating from middle school, I haven’t found ridiculous sexual innuendo funny. Subtlety is so much sexier.
Also, the man who voiced Ronan was not my favorite. I live in the Pacific Northwest and have never heard an accent like that, it was almost like Johnny Depp’s Willy Wonka...super annoying. The leads lacked chemistry, I didn’t even care if they got together.

Sweet Book

Sweet story. I wish it had a bit more character depth and the chemistry between the two main characters could have been built up a bit more, but it was still light and enjoyable.

Sweet, fun and enjoyable!

Kiss My Cupcake is a fun, keep you smiling kind of story with great characters and an entertaining storyline.
Ronan has found his match with Blaire, the feisty, yet oh so sweet, next door business owner. What started out as an unintentional competition between these two ended up being a match made in heaven. Watching them get there is what made this such an enjoyable story!
I had the added pleasure of listening to the audio version and the narrators did an amazing job of bringing the characters to life!
