Every girl in school followed him around in hopes of getting his attention. I was no different, except that I admired Logan from afar. With him being a superstar junior and me being an awkward freshman at a new school, our coupling was ...more

4.5 star Review Lip Smacker by Alison G Bailey

Alison G. Bailey is a new author to me and why that is the case, I have no idea. I found this book to be well written and entertaining, keeping me interested from the first to the last chapter.

Elipheleta (Lip) Smacker is the co owner of a bakery with her grandmother Wavy (love their names). Going through life with such an unusual name has certainly been a challenge for Lip, particularly when she was a teenager. Falling in love from a distance with,

~ 5 Two Halves of a Whole Stars ~

Lip Smacker was a fun, entertaining and sexy read. But it was also a book with all the feels you want to read in a 5 star read.

This story had me laughing out loud, swooning, blushing and even crying. The majority of this book was a feel good romance but it also had that emotional side that pulled on your heartstrings. I was invested in this story and characters right from the start.

I loved the book cover -- I detested the name chosen for the main female character -- even shortened didn't help me in my distaste for it. I know - I know the author probably had her ideas relating to the name and it's her book after all. The storyline has the good, the bad and the ugly. There are some highs and lows. At certain times, I felt the feels. But overall, this book didn't really click for me and I ended up neither hating or loving it. It was a quick read -- entertaining enough to keep ...more

DNF at 22%

There's being quirky and cute and there's forcing quirky and cute. This book is 100% the latter. There are so many places where this book defies logic and what people would do in a situation to go for the "cute" or "quirky" and it just didn't work for me.

3.5 All about Logan Stars

If you are in the mood for a CUTE read this is a MUST read book. I really enjoyed it. I had a smile on my face AND tears were brought to my eyes within the pages of this book. Bravo Ms. Bailey. It isn't easy to bring tears out of this blackened reader's heart. But you done did it. Logan was everything I love in a book boyfriend and Lip was adorable. I flew through this and enjoyed the ride thoroughly and had a smile on my face at the end. So win win. xo

3.5* and here's why; while this book had a lot of potential it never delivered for me. Don't get me wrong it was an OK read but it was at times a bit too cheesy for me. The chemistry wasn't working for me and I had a bit of a struggle to connect with the characters.

Now what I did like was the love Lip and Wavy shared. That was the (only) feeling i felt straight from page one. I did like how Longan ended up helping Lip. To be honest if this was written in two POVs maybe it would make more of a

This is the first book I’ve read by Alison G. Bailey and it will most certainly not be my last. I absolutely loved everything about it. I love her writing style and found myself rereading paragraphs\dialogue because it was so entertaining. Lip and Logan are amazing, I fell in love with them both individually and as a couple. The chemistry between the two is off the charts and the use of family members (Wavy) also added to the storyline and enjoyment factor. This book is a five plus star read, ...more

This heroine had the emotional maturity of a two year old and the poor hero should have escaped when he got the chance. She was awful and after a sweet night together tried to ghost him. Refused to communicate with him. Believes the worst about him. Twice! She then has the audacity to whine about her broken heart - when *she* ghosted *him*. And he just kept coming back for more emotional abuse. I think this was the awfullest heroine I've ever read.

I finished Lip Smacker last night and oh many did I love it! Logan (mr.heath, to me because I refuse to swoon to guys who share my child's name) was sooooo swoon worthy. Like seriously. And Lip, goodness she was such a great character! Strong and stubborn and I just really loved the way she was written.

This book was sooo sweet and super cute but also got me a little emotional, there were tears.

Definitely recommend you give this romance a try!

Elipheleta Smacker (Lip) has strong ties to the neighborhood she now runs her cupcake business out of. Memories of walking down the street reminiscing with Wavy (her grandmother) keep Lip tied to the neighborhood even if her building is run down and a major corporation wants to buy her out to build a new hotel in the area. She isn’t willing to leave the spot she chose so deliberately.

Logan Heath is known as the Closer. He is brought in to work the deal when small businesses don’t want to be

Let me start by saying that Alison G. Bailey never disappoints. I've read pretty much all her books and they all bring something original and sweet to the table.

Lip Smacker is funny, heartfelt, sexy, with a heroine full of sass, a grandmother who is a beautiful soul, and a swoony hero. A big investment company is looking to buy the bakery that Lip has put her heart and soul building from the ground up. And when they send a sexy attorney to try to convince Lip to sell, she receives the surprise

Sweeter than sugar. Better than a cupcake. More adorable than a baby unicorn and all the rainbows. Hilarious. Guaranteed to hit you right in the feels. Lip Smacker is just all the things!

There is nothing that Lip wouldn’t do for her Grandmother and that includes putting her heart and soul into the bakery that they own. Even though it is a struggle financially she is determined to turn their fortunes around and is determined not to accept the offer that they have received to purchase the building even if it comes from her high school crush.

When Logan arrives to convince the bakery owner to sell, he is surprised to find out that it is a girl he went to high school with. They find

This is the first book I've read by Alison G. Bailey, so I didn't know quite what to expect. It was fun and quirky, even if I had to stretch my imagination at times for the logistics of the story. If you were ever the nerdy, dorky teen who dreamed of dating the hot guy at school, then you will totally relate to Lip. (Her name cracked me up!)

There is great banter between Lip and Logan, and the enemies-to-lovers aspect of this story works well. Logan is a pretty swoon-worthy book boyfriend, and

I’m a big fan of Alison’s books and she did not disappoint with Lip Smacker. This story was sweet and a lot of fun. It had me laughing and swooning and enjoying every minute.

There was witty banter, chemistry and romance, and a little angst. I loved the characters. They were well developed and realistic. Lip was independent and strong and Logan was definitely book boyfriend material.

This story is told in Lips’ point of view and is a complete standalone. And I loved it!!

Lip Smacker is my first read by Alison G. Bailey. It was a fun, quirky story that I enjoyed reading.
Lip and Logan are a cute couple, and even though they started off as kinda enemies it didn’t last long. Logan knew what he wanted and pursued Lip with the intention of winning her. He was sweet and kind and just the right amount of alpha.
I liked their push and pull and the witty banter and loved how the epilogue gave us so much more than usual.

My one click pile just got a little bit bigger. Alison G. Bailey was never on my radar before, but boy does she make an impression. Lip Smacker packs all the feels inside of an irresistible story. From awkward teen years to adult heartache, Bailey gives emotions something worth investing in. Lip and Logan were a joyful, breath of fresh air. Can't wait to see what else this author has up her sleeve.

Two words! Logan. Heath. He had my heart swooning with just the right words to say. Just when you kinda wanted to hate him, he became every girls dream. Lip came to be someone who I wanted as my best friend. She’s been through some terrible heartache and I just wanted to be there for her! Their chemistry together was off the charts! You don’t want to miss this charming story! I highly recommend!

A huge thank you to Alison Bailey for this ARC.
I should probably start by saying that I am a long-time fan of the author. I had read her books since so many years and I absolutely love her 'Perfect' series and 'Crazy Sexy Love'. So when I received this ARC, I was happy for the chance.
This story starts when 'Lip' aka Elipheleta Smacker and the bakery that she runs with her grandmother who was her only family left and the bakery that was their dream come true. Since the bakery was not so hot
