Notting Hill meets The Prince & Me in Icing on the Cake, the second standalone laugh-out-loud romance in Ann Marie Walker’s Wild Wedding series

 

Cassandra Miller doesn’t have time for men. She’s far too busy trying to open a cupcake shop with her silent partner and best friend, not to mention catering her brother’s wedding. And let’s face it, it’s not like Prince Charming is going to stroll into the bakery and sweep her off her feet.

 

Henry has been a prince his entire life but for one wild wedding he wants to be nothing more than an “Average Joe”, or in this instance, “Average Hank”. However, when a case of mistaken identity and a batch of burned cupcakes ends in a night of passion, Cassie and Hank must decide if theirs is a recipe for disaster or the makings of true romance.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Icing on the Cake (Wild Wedding, #2)Icing on the Cake by Ann Marie Walker
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the 2nd book in the Wild Wedding series. This book can be read as standalone novel. For reader enjoyment and understanding of the series, I recommend reading in order.

Cassandra is busy trying to build a new life for herself. She is starting a new business, and really does not have time to date. Going to her brother's wedding gives her the chance to have a fling with a sexy someone.

Henry AKA "Hank" just wants to be a normal guy for the weekend. Just wants to enjoy hanging with his college friends without the paparazzi following him around. Then he meets this amazing woman he wants to spend time with.

I loved this story from the start. The banter wasn't the only thing zinging all over. The heat in this book was seriously turned up! Had a steady pace and characters that were so much fun to read.

Icing on the Cake
Icing on the Cake - Lisa Pattinson Icing on the Cake - Lisa Pattinson There are no reviews here on Goodreads and only one one-star rating on Amazon but I read this story anyway. It looks and reads like an author's first book and there is some quality I enjoyed about the story. Nothing really dramatic happens - it's more a day to day story of a group of women. If there were grammatical errors, I'm sure I skimmed over them.

I never had the sense of any physical intimacy (detailed or 'fade to black') between Winona and Heather or real emotional closeness, especially given the last tenth of the book.

The Icing on the Cake
The Icing on the Cake - Janice Thompson Title: The Icing on the Cake (Weddings by Design Book 2) Author: Janice Thompson Pages: 320 Year: 2013 Publisher: Revell Weddings by Design is a series of novels that focus on relationships, first with the Lord before looking elsewhere for fulfillment. I read the first novel, Picture Perfect, and thoroughly enjoyed the various heritages the characters brought to the story. Now in the sequel, The Icing on the Cake, Janice Thompson continues where Hannah’s story wasn’t quite complete in the first novel one. The story continues with Hannah’s adventure while expanding on several of the other players’ story lines. Scarlet is the daughter of a pastor and an only child, which is why Hannah is her BFF. While preparing for events, Scarlet begins to feel uncomfortable with herself and who she is, doubting she can be loved for who she is and her looks. Armando comes from a large Italian family, who feels as if he never got the right amount of attention; therefore, he was making decisions based on what he felt, which led him away from the family. Now, he has returned to the island to help his family and then go wherever the winds might blow, at least that was his plan. Sometimes when we aren’t looking for Who we really need or want God brings the pieces together to draw us to Him. In the story, many characters are looking for or avoiding God for a variety of reasons. Some even refuse to interact with people based on past experiences. Now, in the tale, the tiny church, which isn’t modern by any means, is going to have a talent show to raise funds for a mission trip. There are also plans to have a sale at the bakery Scarlet owns and runs. Faced with her past and wondering about the future leads her down a road of opportunities. The tale has many themes running throughout the pages such as nicknames that build up and others that cause pain for a long time. There is forgiveness, choosing how to live now for a healthier future, as well as being gently led out of one’s comfort zone. Each chapter highlights a little saying that adds spice to the novel some of which will cause you to really laugh out loud! Some of the personality traits in the players I would venture to say are ones we can relate to in ourselves or someone we know. Most of the quirks in these fictional families will crack you up or at least make you smile. So grab a sweet ice tea, a comfy chair and enjoy book 2, The Icing on the Cake! My rating is 5 stars.

Review: Icing On The Cake by Karla Doyle
Icing on the Cake - Karla Doyle

A copy of this book was provided by the publisher for an honest review at The Romance Evangelist.

ICING ON THE CAKE is the second story in Karla Doyle’s Close To Home series, and picks up a few months after the first book, CUP OF SUGAR, where we are now about to see Conn and Nia walk down the aisle. After all the shenanigans Nia’s sister, Sara, had pulled in book one, I was curious to see who could possibly her love match. When Conn’s love ‘em and leave ‘em brother, Curtis, appeared to take an interest in Sara, I knew I would be in for a rollercoaster ride until the very end. What I didn’t expect was how ICING ON THE CAKE would manage to show the hidden sides of both Curtis and Sara, and how she wasn’t the only one who needed that perfectly matched someone to care and understand.

Even though we got a fairly decent explanation of why Sara behaves as she does, and why Nia’s family continues to support her no matter what, it’s in ICING ON THE CAKE that we see exactly what her past actions and present stubbornness have brought her. Nia and her parents still have no idea how Sara really lives, and only by virtue of his desire for her does Curtis manage to wedge his way into her existence and ultimately her heart. 

Curtis may be less self-destructive than Sara, but he’s still a badass, and just as resistant to romantic relationships as she is. His police job puts in him danger every day and women are just a off-duty distraction. Any time one of them gets close, it’s all over, and he’s on to the next one. But even Curtis knows that as much as he wants Sara in his bed, he still needs to be especially careful with her heart. If only he was looking after his own as closely.

As much as I loved Nia and Conn’s sweet and passionate romance in CUP OF SUGAR, I was even more taken by the rough and tumble path to love for Sara and Curtis in ICING ON THE CAKE. So much of what keeps them apart is a lack of trust, but you have to give trust to get it, and that’s one thing neither Sara nor Curtis seems to be particular good at. Thank goodness that their mutual sexual attraction is so incredible that it keeps bringing them back together even as they resist acknowledging their deeper feelings for each other. By the time Curtis and Sara stop denying the obvious, each has finally stopped putting on the front they keep for everyone else and the result is a happy ending that is not only satisfying but realistic for both characters. ICING ON THE CAKE is a lovely continuation of the Close To Home series, and I quite enjoyed it.
