eARC review: Cupcake by Cookie O’ Gorman

You’re thinking this will be just one more story of the ignored, “big-boned ” girl, who sheds her glasses and a few extra pounds and finally attracts the notice of the most popular guy in school.

Except it isn’t. Because I’m not unpopular. Not all that ignored. And I love the way I look―just as I am.

Then someone puts my name in for Homecoming Court.

The bigger surprise?

People actually vote for me!

Now, I’m a “princess”―whether I like it or not―but the guy I’m paired with isn’t exactly Prince Charming.

Rhys Castle is the strong, silent type who always wears a frown―he’s certainly never smiled at me. I’m 99.9% sure he hates being on Court and being my partner, but surprisingly…he doesn’t switch when he gets the chance.

Turns out Rhys has a secret―something that makes him run hot and cold throughout the entire three weeks of Homecoming festivities. Whether he’s stepping on my feet during dance lessons or gallantly escorting me through the Homecoming parade, I can’t get a read on this guy, and for the first time, I find my confidence wavering.

But there’s more to Rhys than meets the eye. And the more the spotlight shines on me, I realize there’s more to me, too.

My review:

Cupcake by Cookie O’Gorman was a super cute book that swept me off my feet.

I loved the plot. It was a homecoming centric book. But it had a message behind it, which was you should always be comfortable with yourself.

I loved the romance. I loved the characters and the baking and all of the nods to the romantic comedy movies. This was another book that is making me want to do a movie night soon.

I also loved how the mean girl and the main girl character ended up becoming friends. If I had any complaints it would be that I wish their friendship was longer and explored, but it was nice to see them set aside their original beliefs and (spoiler alert) stick up for each other.

Cupcake by Cookie O’Gorman was a five star rating book. Thank you Netgalley and publishers for allowing me the chance to read and review this. I enjoyed every minute.
