✿ Cake ✿ Carmen Jenner ✿ Blog Tour ✿

A hilarious new rom-com from USA Today best-selling author Carmen Jenner.

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 Poppys job and Bridezilla's head from exploding?

Piece of cake, right?

ARC received for an honest review
 See that there ^^?

That was me as I read Cake - because, you know, you can't read a book called Cake without eating cake.  It's a law or something.

Firstly, I love love love love LOVE this cover.  I am not usually a big on paying attention to covers, but I adore this one more and more every time I look at it.

This book was everything.  I laughed, I cried, I yelled at my kindle, I may or may have not wanted to climb into the book and nut punch someone - or someones!

Right from the start, Cake is silly, sexy, fun and I could not put it down.  Poppy and Leo are all sorts of adorable.  They say fighting if foreplay,  and OMG this pair love to fight.

My heart hurt for Poppy throughout this book.  I am telling you now, I would never be as understanding as she is with things.  I would be ripping people's balls off and shoving them down their throats! But, maybe that is just me???

I freaking adored Leo "Nass The Ass". I am like Poppy - I didn't know whether I wanted to kill him or kiss him (well, you know that I really wanted to kiss him lol) 

Gah, I know this isn't doing the book justice! 

So buy it, Read it. Love it!


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. Its not hard, just a quick jab or two, but he still doesnt 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 himon top of himand 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.

Leos 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.

Youre disgusting. I wouldnt touch you if—”

Yeah, yeah, if I were the last man on Earth. Ive heard it all before, sweet cheeks, and I dont buy it for a second. He flips us so suddenly my head spins. Im 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. Im 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. Im stunned, speechless. I have no words. Theyve all left me because my brain has turned to mush and my vagina is the only one thinking, and Im really not okay leaving her in charge. Why burn them when were not done messing them up?
