My Thoughts:

This was such a fun read! I devoured this book in one sitting. It’s a super quick read and fun from beginning to end.

Poppy is not having the best of luck lately. She gets to be the maid of honor for her ex best friend’s wedding to her ex fiancĂ©. I mean… that’s just not fun at all. And then comes the snowball effect, because when it rains it pours. Poppy is a much better person that I could ever be and that made me love her. She has every reason to be horrible and vindictive but she rises above it all. I couldn’t help but feel for her and love her.

Leo is a bit of a jerk… but he manages to be a lovable jerk. Leo and Poppy have been arguing since they were kids and that hasn’t stopped now that they are adults. It’s clear to everyone but them why they argue so much but love is clearly blind. I loved them and I loved their banter. You can’t help but laugh with the way they go back and forth.

I read this book at a lightening pace because it moves so quickly. I think that was my favorite thing about it. It never drags and it’s just enjoyable. It's laugh out loud funny and the characters get themselves into ridiculous situations. And yes there are times where it is over the top ridiculous and highly improbable but that is what makes it so enjoyable. It’s a bit cheesy and over the top and is exactly why it’s such a fun time. It’s a rom com through and through.

Cake is a really quick and really fun read. It’s the kind of read that is guaranteed to be a good time and not drown you in angst. It’s perfect for when you want something to escape into and put a smile on your face. Poppy and Leo will make you laugh and steal your heart.

Excerpt:

I sneak closer to the bed, my heart pounding as I throw the pillow at him. The guy shifts in his sleep, and his breathing slows, but a beat later the snoring starts again and I have to resist the urge to scream. Instead, I raise my poker and jab the sheet covered body. It’s not hard, just a quick jab or two, but he still doesn’t stir. “Hey, asshole!” I shout, and whack him hard in the butt with my poker. The giant freak jumps up and seizes my hand. His grip forces me to drop my weapon. He yanks me toward him—on top of him—and this is how I find myself eye to eye with the beast. He breathes his heavy, stinking breath on my face, and I wince and wrinkle my nose. Leo’s eyes crinkle in the corners as he laughs. “Morning, Pop Tart.” “Get the hell out of my bed. And brush your goddamn teeth. What are you doing in my house, Nass?” “Ah, still feisty, huh? Is this like an all-day thing with you, or do you eventually turn from an angry sea witch into a person? Would coffee help?” “Fuck you, Leo.” “Darlin’, you wish.” “You’re disgusting. I wouldn’t touch you if—” “Yeah, yeah, if I were the last man on Earth. I’ve heard it all before, sweet cheeks, and I don’t buy it for a second.” He flips us so suddenly my head spins. I’m beneath him, my wrists pinioned to the bed above my head by just one of his strong hands. The other glides up my side. My sheets have twisted up around us, but from this angle it looks as if Leo Nass is very much naked in my bed. “Goddamn it,” I complain once I find my voice. “I’m going to need to burn these sheets after you leave.” His eyebrow quirks, and the grin he gives me is all-out salacious. He shifts his weight between my legs, then he drops his hips and grinds his erection against me. I’m stunned, speechless. I have no words. They’ve all left me because my brain has turned to mush and my vagina is the only one thinking, and I’m really not okay leaving her in charge. “Why burn them when we’re not done messing them up?”
