Courtship of the Cake by Jessica Topper ~Review~

The follow up read from author Jessica Topper’s Much I Do about Nothing series has the same formula that I am beginning to appreciate, as good people with crazy lives injected with a bit of rock and roll that gives the series a nice bite.

Courtship of the Cake is a second chance romance on two different levels. It’s a one night stand that won’t fade away for neither Dani nor Mick. Also, a childhood romance that is years past its expiration date still hasn’t had its final curtain call for Nash and Angie.

Rocker Nash needs the help of masseuse Dani. Not only for his health, but to act as a pretend fiancĂ© in order to facilitate a relationship with his sons mother. Quickly, Dani discovers that all isn’t as quiet as it seems back home where Nash grew up.

When you throw in the fact that Nash’s best friend is the incredible one night stand Dani hasn’t been able to forget, it only adds to the lies that begin to pile up and become a bit unbelievable.

Honestly, I would have preferred Nash and his ex’s story to have been the main focus. As much as I love Dani and Mick, I just felt more drawn to the obviously more dramatic and deep love shared and rejected by Nash and Angie. There was just so much there I wanted to know more intimately.

All in all, Courtship of the Cake is a nice follow up, but it falls just a bit short of its predecessor; however it is still worth devouring as is any good piece of cake ;)
