I LOVEEEEE a good rom com. It doesn’t matter if OTT, it’s fiction and you need OTT to make the book amazing. Jenner got the right balance here and Cake easily is a favourite after I read and wanted to devour it all over again. Leo and Poppy may be upper crust New Yorkers but don’t judge them by their families. These two are entertaining as heck and been at each other bantering since high school and never can stand to be in the same room . Until now when things get just tiny little crazier when everything collides in their lives when their respective best friends get married. Which happens to be both ex’s of Poppy, her ex fiancé and ex best friend. Talk about ouchh
It was match made heaven here, as the situation these two find themselves into , it something you have to read to believe as everything happens like the blurb hints, but that only part of this story. As underneath it all it’s a romance that fitting for these two that you won’t get enough even though it takes a while to heat up as these two quite frankly can’t get the past behind and it’s one that keeps raring it’s head at the wrong/right time. It’s all how you see things really and it’s a light hearted fun with no serious consequences. The perfect rom com with all the right elements
As Poppy has been dragged into the situation by not only being the maid of the honour , but the wedding planner as well and it’s her dream wedding she now planning for them. She could have acted in a immature way but there more riding on this then letting feelings override her work life.
Instead Poppy backbone was the story. She had a stick up her back as, Leo and Jasper liked to say and it’s no surprise when you dive into this book and truly get to know these characters. She was grinning and bearing it, she couldn’t say no given the circumstances and Leo was just the added distraction she didn’t need . Oh did she
He was never shy about his womanising ways and it added to this story in a positive way . I loved his antics and the way he acted when it came to Poppy and the transformation when he realised what was in front of him. He may a bit of an ass, but he had the best intentions at times . It was the best of both worlds and Cake showed that you could have both
It may be a rom com but Cake’s romance is one that you won’t forget for a long time because of the antics.
