Sweet, yet dirty and down right funny of a rom-com that Helena Hunting has brought to the table because Ronan and Blaire are one of a kind...



If you know me already, you will know that my love for Helena's books are immense. I do not think I have stumbled across any of her books in which I have ever said, "wow... this was terrible". And you know why? Because her writing will forever satisfy my book needs and will always make me laugh and have those butterflies in my stomach through every word

this story is sugar and spice and everything nice. and i would kill for a cupcake right about now.

just like a cupcake, this story is super sweet, the characters are lovely, the atmosphere is light, and the story is tasteful.

but sometimes, too much sweetness can be too much of a good thing and my only critique would be there really isnt any sort of opposition, which makes the climax a little dull. yes, cute and fluffy is nice to read about, but i think i tend to prefer my romance to be a little

6S can be the definition of this ultra deliciously yummy, feel-good, joyful novel I just finished:

Soft, swoon, sweet but also sexy, smart, sassy.

Ingredients for creating a delightfully entertaining rom-com:

Adorable MCs: Blaine Calloway makes us sing :”Look at me, I’m Sandra Dee, lousy with virginity, won’t go to bed till I legally wed”: actually she is Rizzo who is wearing Sandy clothes. Maybe I used so much references from Grease, but you have to know a lot about the musical to visualize the s

Is it possible to have your cupcake and eat it too?

Gosh this book was SO MUCH FUN to listen to. Seriously, I kept a smile on my face almost the entire time. I loved this story of rivals to friends, of enemies to lovers. 2020 has been good for something and that’s Helena Hunting reads. This is the second book of hers I’ve read this year that I’ve absolutely adored.

Blaire Calloway is determined to make her bakery a success. It’s been years in the making and she’s ready

This is a romance/chick lit. I would like to Thank Forever for granting my wish on Netgalley for this book. I cannot say how much I enjoyed this book. I could not put it down. It was cute, fun, and funny. I loved all the characters, but my favorite character was Blaire. Her family was something else. I am so very glad I read this book.

What’re you doing?”
“I want to see what I’m dealing with.”
“You can touch him, he doesn’t bite.”
“Him?” She peeks up, her expression amused. “Does he have a name?”
I scoff. “Of course not.” I call him The Sword of Destiny in my head, though.

I finished this book with a ridiculous craving of cupcakes and a goofy grin on my face. This was just so stinking cute, y'all. SO CUTE. This was opposites attract perfection with a splash of enemies to lovers and all the feels.

A very cute love story with just about the right amount of steam! Blaire has just opened up a cupcake (and booze..how creative is that?) shop and next door Ronan has taken over his Grandfather's pub (and added axe throwing..how cool is that?). They start off on the wrong foot but the tension builds and smoulders until they can no longer resist each other.

I completely enjoyed this "sweet" story. It's my first Helena Hunting book but definitely not my last. I especially loved the scenes of Ronan s

Cupcakes, HP trivia and a hot bartender. This was one fun combo I didn't know I needed!
Would have given this 5 stars if not for Blair's constant "I'm not like my shallow family, I'm gonna make it on my own" speeches and her inherent dubious nature. Ronan deserved better than that.

All right, y'all, I'm hungry. Let's chat about this novel.

I usually enjoy Helena Hunting's books because they're a mix of fun escape, a tad improbable, and quite steamy. Kiss My Cupcake, on the other hand, didn't quite give me what I was expecting. While that's not necessarily a bad thing, I just never really connected with this book. There wasn't a long-lasting conflict in here, and everything kept wrapping up so neatly the entire time.

Kiss my cupcake was delicious, delightful and enjoyable; even the “foodgasms” were thrilling, especially when the demo of them were by the ever yummy looking Ronan Knight, the owner of the pub next door.
Here’s a quick overview of the plot... Blaire Calloway was determined to succeed on her own, and worked really hard on opening a cupcake and cocktails business, moving it from a food truck to a brick and mortar store. Everything was cruising along fine until Ronan Knight the grandson of the owner

I can always count on this author to put a smile on my face. If I’m looking for a fun read that will put a smile on my face, I grab a romcom from Helena Hunting.

"He's completely self-centered as well as condescending. I hate him already. Forever. Like a kindergartner."

This was such a fun read! It was exactly what I expected: funny and entertaining. The banter between Blaire and Ronan was hilarious, and kept the story entertaining from beginning to end. Is the story clichéd and predicable? Definitely, but it is a rom-com after all.

This book is filled with smart banters that definitely make you laugh. .Both Blaire and Ronan are likable. I enjoyed Blaire's dysfunctional family and Ronan's normal family. It is a bit predictable but if you are into food and in the mood for rom-com, it won't be a bad choice.

What disturbed me, the heroine emphasizes she has curves and how her family is always on the keto diet. Can we stop this? Not everyone likes sweet food, maybe some people are happy with dieting. There's nothing wrong with e

Super cute. Low angst, almost minimal conflict. Gives you all the happy feelings.

Kiss My Cupcake is filled with lovable characters, fun small shop shenanigans, and a romance that is completely sweet and a bit steamy. I really enjoyed these two as people and a couple, although Ronan stole the show for me.

The plot is very low angst, and the conflict while there comes late in the plot and is resolved very quickly. My preference is for a bit more angst and substa

Helena Hunting's books always bring such a smile to my face! This enemies to friends to lovers/forced proximity-ish romance checked all my boxes and was such a fun read.

Oh my lord was this one CUTE y’all! If you like baking, enemies to lovers and a slow burn romance this one is a must. It made me feel all the warm and fuzzies and was such a perfect escape for me.

Blaire was downright adorable and quirky to boot, and Ronan was basically her polar opposite. From the moment they meet their banter was hilarious and HH is the queen of creating amazing chemistry between her characters so this one had some heat to it. It does take awhile for their to be any sexy s

Blaire has just opened her cupcake business and she really needs it to succeed, because even though she comes from a wealthy family, she doesn't want their help and involvement. But things start on a rough patch with the bar next door, so she goes there and we get to meet Ronan, the owner of that bar. Blaire also needs to win a contest and when she notices that his bar is also participating said contest, things get interesting...

Kiss My Cupcake was a super sweet,slow-burn, rivals to friends to lovers read. Blaire is opening up her own cupcake and cocktails shop, and next door Ronan is revamping his families bar. These two meet when Ronan axe-identally shakes their shared wall and bursts some of Blaire’s new business happiness. I don’t want to say too much, because this is just a sweet romance that you need to read. There’s banter between the characters, sexual tension for days, funny family dynamics, a heroine trying to ...more

While this was not my favourite from Helena Hunting, it was very enjoyable overall. Blaire and Ronan give us a sweet and feisty enemies-to-lovers romance, but at times it was also quite cringe-y. Blaire was almost unbearable at first and I literally could not even fathom making it to the end of the book. I thought that the tweets in-between... while I understood WHY they were there, could've been a little more creative.

Blaire storms out in one scene and yells "KISS MY CUPCAKE" and thinks it's th

Kiss My Cupcake was a fun neighborhood rivalry that turns into love. I did have issues with the way Blaire and Ronan were described verse the way the illustrated art on the cover. There was also some inconsistency about the descriptions and demeanor as the story evolved. Overall, I was able to look past those issues to really enjoy the relationship.
