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.
Confession time... I have watched The Prince & Me far too many times. So when I heard the second book in Ann Marie Walker's Wild Wedding series was a combination of The Prince & Me and Notting Hill... Where do I sign up? I adored the heck out of the first book in the series and was counting down the days until the publication of the next book. And let me tell you, Icing on the Cake did not disappoint. It delivered on everything I wanted. This book made me laugh uncontrollably, swoon unabashedly, and yell loudly at a character many times for not telling the truth. One of my favorite elements of the book was that there is more of Cassie and Olivia's friendship. Olivia goading Cassie... best friend ever! Then we have the chemistry and sexual tension between Cassie and Hank. All of the burnt cupcakes were well worth the time they spent together.
Overall, Icing on the Cake was a fun read that kept me up way past my bedtime. Plus the combination of the two movies was perfection. And if you're waiting for Prince Henry's wedding like the rest of us romance lovers, then this is the book to read to keep you company.
