Book Review: Fake It Till You Bake It
A reality star and a cupcake-baking football player pretend to be a couple in order to save his bakery in this sweet and sexy romance from Jamie Wesley, Fake It Till You Bake It.
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.
Fake it Till You Bake It is a sweet confection of a novel, the perfect story to curl up with and enjoy with a cupcake on the side.
I really enjoyed this book a lot. It was just what I was looking for in a romcom...witty banter, hot romance, and engaging characters, and yummy cupcakes! Jada and Donovan first meeting was anything but a sweet meet cute. Yet, it did provide for some great entertainment. It also showed that Jada was not intimidated by Donovan.
The chemistry between these two heated up and before Jada knew it, she was finding not just Donovan's cupcakes irresistible. While, this book focused on Jada and Donovan, the rest of the cast of characters were just as engaging. They really added to the story and kept things fun. When August spoke, I had to do a double read. If you read this book, you will understand what I mean by this. Fake It Till You Make It is one that you will want to make sure is in your summer reading plans!
