Carmen Jenner thank you for such a fun time with this rom com! Poppy Porter our cat loving, cake eating, heroine is trying to navigate being dumped by her fiancée while being the maid of honor in his wedding and the wedding planner. Things go from bad to worse but for readers so very interesting when her ex’s best friend and our heroine’s archnenmeis enters the story… Leo Nass the Ass.
"To look at Leo Nass is to look at a god, but any-like impression is ruined the second ...more
This book was absolutely delightful! It was silly, sexy and sassy. Cake was a feel good rom com that I didn’t put down once I started. Poppy and Leo have the hate/love relationship down pat and the cover is perfect for this book.
Poppy is not loving life right now. After getting dumped by her long time boyfriend, she now has the privilege of planning his wedding to her (ex)best friend. And while she isn’t totally heart broken over their split because she knew it was time, she is ...more
Poppy and Leo have known each other since they were teens. Poppy was engaged to Chase, Leo’s best friend, but that relationship ended and he then started dating her best friend. Now they are getting married and Poppy, who is a wedding planner, is not only planning the wedding but is also the maid if honor. Leo, is the best man so they get to see each other often.
I loved the banter between Poppy and Leo! They think they hate each other, but we ...more
“You sleep in Grumpy Cat pajamas?”
“Oh, baby. You really are a crazy cat lady.”
“Don’t call me baby; I’m not your baby. And so I like cats. So what?...”
“Tell me, Pop Tart, is your pussy this unhappy, too?” He fingers the print of Grumpy Cat right over my nipple. I gasp before I can help it. The sound just slips out. Leo’s eyes darken with lust.
“Right now? Yeah, because some asshole doesn’t know what personal space means….”
As if that isn't stressful enough, the best man is someone that Poppy despises, Leo Nass. The man whori ...more
HOLY MOLY!!! When an authors tagline line is what’s a happily ever after without a little torture? you come to expect stories full of angst, heartache and most definitely not smooth sailing. You hope for those belly flutters and warm fuzzies to accompany the aforementioned torture, but it wouldn't be remiss of us to not expect it. When Ms Jenner first announced CAKE I did a little happy dance because word on the street was SPOILER ALERT: NO ONE DIES.
Can you hear my excitement through my review b ...more
Carmen Jenner is known for her gritty, heartfelt second chance romances. She has written everything from Biker Romances to Angsty romances that give you all the feels. So, when I heard that she was going to be writing a romantic comedy, I couldn’t wait to see what she would bring to the table…
Cake is a hilarious romantic comedy. From the moment I picked up this book, I was sucked into Leo a ...more
ARC kindly received in exchange for an honest review.
This was my first Carmen Jenner book, and oh boy, it certainly will not be my last. I have been recommended Carmens books by a friend for the last few months, so finally getting to read one was awesome.
I loved this book! I was hooked from the very beginning, that prologue sure draws you in. Also, this book is so hilarious. I was grinning like a fool at my kindle so often its ridiculous.
Both of the main characters in th ...more
This is Pop Tart. She’s anal-retentive, OCD, wedding obsessed, and a believer in true love, love at first sight , and . . . fate.
And Leo "Nass the Ass", is a man-whore, who's done half of Manhattan and rigorously working his way through the other half. He loves needling her for her obsession with these sugary delights.
They meet in NYC , he manages to distract her enough that she falls on the street and her cupcakes are smooshed. He meets her at the weddin ...more
If all frenemies were as hot as Leo Nash… I’d need at least 3 please.
Another great story from the fabulous Carmen Jenner.
Poppy is preparing to stand beside her (ex) best friend on her wedding day… only problem is her (ex) best friend is marrying Poppy’s ex fiancé. That’s all one big mess, so let’s focus on Poppy’s career as a wedding planner… wait… that’s a mess too… Never mind. Let’s just focus on cake. Poppy loves cake… but… that’s another mess. Okay… So, this story is one b ...more
It's been such a long time since I read a 4 star worthy- enemies to lovers trope. I'm so glad I came across this in my updates. It's a perfect laugh out loud mood lifter.
Are you looking for a rom-com? Are you looking for a couple that hates each others guts which makes for great foreplay? Are you looking for witty comebacks & hilarious banter where the leads are constantly one-upping each other?
Are you looking for bridesmaid/best man romance?
Here you ...more
Cake was definitely a step away from the heart wrenching angst that Carmen Jenner is so well known for but I think she’s about to become well known for something completely different!
Cake was deliciously (pun intended) fun. It was flirty, a whole bit cray cray and full of so much snark and sexy banter. It had me up all night sniggering and waking up my house with laugh out loud hilarity. I could not put this book down! I picked it up late at night to read a couple of chapters and a couple of h ...more
I loved this story!!!
Cake is a great rom-com,it was enterteining,funny and sweet...I hope it becomes a movie soon.
Poppy,our heroine,is an amazing wedding planner but she isn't ready to arrange and to take part to her ex fiancè and best friend's wedding.
Fortunately our heroine during this very stressful time,with her job on the line and tons of little hitches,finds the support of her very nemesis,Leo Nass.
I liked Leo even if he's a playboy and our heroine is not too fond of him I can see somethi

4.5 PopTart Stars!!!
Popped my Carmen Jenner Cherry with this book. What a great quick paced, free flowing, laugh out loud story!!! I opened this book and could not put it down till I finished. It was one OMG moment after another.
Poppy Porter is a bigger woman than I could ever be! That is for sure. Working her way up the ladder in her current job as an associate wedding planner, this upcoming wedding will surely get her the promotion she so desperately needs.
The catch to t ...more
"After that read you will stop thinking the same about cakes as you used to be. Put a cocky-feisty-sexy-man in the picture and you will have the best rom-com you ever read!"
"I received a complimentary copy of this book and have volunteered to leave a review."
Book rates: 5+stars
WOW!!! What a great story!!! This book is the first I have read by Carmen Jenner and, damn, I love how this girl's mind works! Carmen likes t ...more
I loved this book!!!
This is a new author to me but I’m really thankful that I took a chance on her. There isn’t much I like better than a good enemies to lovers romance and when you add in all the hilarity of an ex-boyfriend and an ex-best friends wedding, this was a recipe for fun.
I’m normally not a fan of blatant, unapologetic manwhores but I have to tell you, I LOVED Leo. I totally understood Poppy’s hesitance to give into his charms but I love that once he fell, he fell hard and he ...more
Poor poppy has had a year from hell and the one thing she needs is for everything to go right but yet it’s all crumbling around her!! Can she pull off this nightmare wedding ...more
I've been a fan of Carmen Jenner's dark romance novels for years, so I couldn't resist giving her lighter side a try. As I suspected she nailed it, her word wizardry is not limited to genre, so I get to have my cake and eat it too. It doesn't matter what she decides to tackle next, whether it be a dark or light, chocolate or vanilla, badass bikers or wedding planners, I'm in.
I was #TeamPoppy from the beginning. She had my support and admiration ...more
Poppy Porter is in the middle of her worst nightmare. Her ex is marrying her ex-best friend, but no, that is not the worst of it. Nope! She is expected to not only be part of the wedding planning as both a wedding party planner and maid of ho ...more
I freaking LOVED Poppy. She was hilarious and totally my kindof girl. Ms. Jenner had me rooting for Poppy's happily ever after from the first chapter. And I will be honest, I REALLY wanted there to be a bigger falling out with Chase and Claire, they both totally deserved worse (but then, I might just be that vengeful)... Anyway... back to Poppy, man, what a confident woman an ...more
Poppy is a wedding planner chasing that big promotion and willing to do what it takes to get it...even planning the wedding of her ex life long best friend to her ex boyfriend as well as being the maid of honour at the nuptials. It's no wonder she loves ...more
A hardcore red lipstick addict and a romantic at heart, Carmen strives to give her characters the HEA they deserve, but not before ruining their lives completely first … because what’s a happily ever after without a little torture?
