Always Room For Cupcakes
by Bethany Lopez
One day I was be-bopping along jamming to the music in my head while wondering if my thighs could handle grabbing a cupcake on the way home. The next thing I knew, my entire world crashed and burned.
I used to wake up at night in a sweat, crying because I’d dreamt that my husband was cheating on me, or that he hated me, and resented my kids. He’d always hold me close and tell me it was all just a dream, that he loved me and our family and that he’d never let me go.
He was a fucking liar.
Now I spend my days taking photos of scum just like him, trying to be a champion for other’s being taken advantage of by the losers in our town, and my nights being a single mom to my beautiful twins.
I’ve got great friends who have my back, and a sexy, mysterious motorcycle man who keeps showing up when I need him. Maybe things are starting to look up, and one thing’s for sure… There’s always room for cupcakes.
WARNING: THIS BOOK CONTAINS FOUL LANGUAGE, SEX, SOME VIOLENCE, AND SHENANIGANS. IF NONE OF THAT BOTHERS YOU, GRAB A CUPCAKE AND READ ON!
“I hadn’t seen anything, but that didn’t mean the perps weren’t inside. They were adulterers after all, so they wouldn’t exactly be boning in the front yard.”
“The full view was nothing to write home about. He was totally naked, and really hairy in areas that were not pleasing to the eye… There was nothing happy about that trail… I almost tossed my cookies.”
“‘Oh my God! I love you,’ I cried then without wasting any time, I ate that cupcake like someone was about to take it from me. Because seriously, if the nurse had come in and caught me, she would have.”
Always Room For Cupcakes is a fun, quick, and delightful read that kept a smile on my face as well as occasionally had me snorting and laughing aloud. I was happily entertained by the clever humor and comical depictions as much as I was by the quirky small town characters. The story was well-written and well-paced with a bit of mystery and intrigue along with the frequent wit and occasional hits of steamy goodness. Lila is a recently divorced, single-mom turned investigative photographer for a skivvy PI, who soon found herself in over her head in every facet of her life, and although her adventures were dangerous and scary, the light tone kept the story entertaining and breezy. I would classify it as an enjoyable and entertaining women’s fiction/romantic comedy hybrid.
