Cupcakes and romance? Say no more! Jamie Wesley’s Fake It Till You Bake It, which comes out on June 21st, is the sweet romance you need this summer!
Jada Townsend-Matthews is the most reviled woman in America after turning down a proposal on a reality dating show. When she comes home to lick her wounds, Jada finds herself working at San Diego's newest cupcake bakery, Sugar Blitz, alongside the uptight owner and professional football player Donovan Dell. When a reporter mistakenly believes Jada and Donovan are an item, they realize they can use the misunderstanding to their advantage to help the struggling bakery and rehabilitate Jada's image. Faking a relationship should be simple, but sometimes love is the most unexpected ingredient.
This romance was so cute and honestly worth reading just for the drool-inducing descriptions of cupcakes in the story.
Fake dating has always been a favorite trope of mine and this one was done so well and just made me love this trope even more!
I loved the different personalities of the main characters and how Jada and Donovan complemented each other. Plus the fact that Donovan is a stern grumpy pants while Jada is a sassy sunshine makes this story even more delicious! Add in a few amazing bestie side characters and you have a recipe for a great romcom!
I seriously need to read August’s book ASAP so I hope it comes out soon! But in the meantime, Donovan and Jada’s story is so much fun and is definitely one to add to your Summer TBR!
