Poppy Porter's ex is getting married ... to her ex-best friend. To land her dream job of partner in the most prestigious firm on the Upper East Side, Poppy must now pull double shifts as their wedding planner and maid of honor. And the icing on a truly craptastic cake? Leo Nass. Handsome, infuriating, womanizer, and … the best man. Despite their longstanding loathing, Poppy doesn't see Leo coming. Literally.
One ruined cake.
One archnemesis.
One hour to save the wedding.
Can they put their hatred aside long enough to save Poppy’s job and Bridezilla's head from exploding?
Piece of cake, right?
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?” Cake_Insta_Share

My Review
4 “Pop Tart” Stars

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 a little miffed that he moved on so quickly and that he moved on with her childhood friend no less. Not only that but now she has to spend time with her arch-nemesis, her exes best friend Leo. His manwhore ways annoy her as does his rich lifestyle. Yet when she least expects it, she has to depend on him to help get her out of a literally sticky situation. And the fact that she finds herself thinking about Leo in ways she never expected is another surprise she’s not ready to deal with until she no longer can deny it.

This story had me giggling all the way through. I loved the lighthearted feel to it. Some dramatic push and pull but for the most part it was just really fun. I loved the love/hate between Leo and Poppy. I honestly am still not exactly sure why she had such dramatic hatred toward him, but in the end their hate to love romance was just what I needed.
