Book Review: Cupcake Overload by Bethany Lopez 9


Cupcake Overload

by Bethany Lopez






One night I was out with my girls enjoying a much needed ladies night while wondering if one more dirty martini would push me over the edge. The next thing I knew, I was in the club’s bathroom listening to a woman screaming, “No,” and a man’s voice growling, “I know you want it.”

That asshole picked the wrong restroom, in the wrong club, at the wrong time.

Little did I know the asshole was Cade’s VP, and although we saved that woman from his clutches that night, she’d be found floating in a motel pool a month later.

Running a PI firm is a lot harder than taking pictures for one, especially when your professional life spills over into your personal one. I’m going through cupcakes like our new puppy goes through piddle pads, and if I’m not careful there’s bound to be a Cupcake Overload.

Favorite Quotes:


They seemed really into each other, and although the age difference was probably at least ten years, I had to admit I had the urge to give her a high five over it. I mean, it’s always a score for the sisterhood when an older woman bags a younger man, even if he does have delusions of surferdom.


Like the angel she was, Amy May slid a beautiful white-chocolate cupcake under my nose while I was freaking out. ‘I love you,’ I managed as I shoved it into my mouth.


I bent over to fluff out my hair, then tossed it back. ‘Whoa,’ I uttered when the effect looked more wild banshee, than seductive siren.


I was just standing there, staring at him like I’d paid admission.



My Review:


Cupcake Overload was a tasty treat without the calories. The story was laden with delightful indulgences such as steamy sensual scenes, wickedly fun and irreverent humor, clever observations, and an engaging plot, I fan myself as well as snorted, barked, and smirked as I read. The writing was crisp, highly amusing, and bitingly clever.   New love bloomed, relationships solidified, a murder mystery was solved, and massive amounts of cupcakes were consumed.   It was like nectar from the gods for this old cougar.
