All's fair in love and cupcakes by Betsy St. Amant

All's Fair


All’s Fair in Love and Cupcakes || (Zondervan, September 2014)
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.
My opinion: I thoroughly enjoyed this book.  I am a huge fan of books where best friends fall in love (probably because my husband and I started off as friends before falling in love) so I was very excited to receive this book and it certainly did not disappoint! This was the first book by Betsy St. Amant that I have read and I totally fell in love with her style of writing! I found it very engaging and the characters were realistic and very likable, quirks and all! 
I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion.
