Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!

Fun #Teen #RomCom – Cupcake by Cookie O’Gorman 

My Review:

This is a fun High School/teen romance,
With a heroine who doesn't think she has a chance.
She's shocked to discover - she'd never have thought - 
She's a princess in the school's Homecoming Court!

She's usually happy with herself and her size
But being selected for the role is a huge surprise.
As she usually stays quiet, behind the scenes
And now she's unsure just what it all means.

Her partner is to be Rhys Castle who
Is a hunk and sportsman, what should she do?
With weeks of festivities and activities to weather
Can they survive this time together?

But even though he's offered the chance
He chooses to say with her and learn to dance.
As they're involved in activities, getting to know each other 
There are surprises for both of them to discover.

It is a heartwarming read full of fun that shows
That, given the chance, love grows
Regardless of size, everyone deserves their chance
At kindness, love and romance.

Their secret problems they discuss and share
With others who they trust might care.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book
And at the end are recipes for you to cook!

This is my honest review after choosing to read a complementary copy of this book.


I know what you’re thinking……

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.
