I have never ever been more relieved to have received a book for free from kindle! Because If I had paid for this, I would be distraught over being out of the Amazon 14 day return period.
For all those who have not read this book and are thinking of doing so, let me give you the basic plot, mainly in picture form.
First off though:
Gay best friend – √
Horrible ex – √
Stalker insane ex of new guy – √
Massive misunderstanding due to the heroine only hearing half of a conversation – √
Heroine with an unexplained and unbelievable low self esteem, despite her actually being super hot – √
But onto the story.
annnnnnnnd that is basically it. With the addition of the odd idiot ex mixed in there somewhere
So again, making your heroine a slap happy twat, is not making her “cute” or “fiesty” or whatever else you thought you were writing her as. She is an abuser – just because she is female does not make it any less true. It is not funny or sexy. It is just wrong.
And how the heroine actually made any money is beyond me, other than the odd wedding cake, or cakes for herself, she did zero baking, yet seemed to have an endless supply of cakes and pastries out the back, that I assume the magical cupcake fairy made.
I will not be reading the next book about these two, unless I read a review that the hero, actually dumps the heroine due to her habit of slapping him hard across the face for every perceived slight. Not that he was much better in all honesty, sleeps with his secretary (who ofc turns out to be insane! duh! she is an ex girlfriend, she was never going to be much else) then fires her, due to I assume it being awkward to fuck your current girlfriend up against your office door, when your recent hook up/employee is sitting on the other side. That is a lawsuit waiting to happen I am sure.
