All's Fair in Love and Cupcakes by Betsy St. Amant

All's Fair in Love and Cupcakes
Lucie's Review:

All's Fair in Love and Cupcakes and combat. Cupcake Combat, that is. Lucas sent in a video of his best friend Kat, (without her knowing), and now she is a contestant on a reality cooking competition show. Kat needs an assistant and figures that it is only fair that the man who got her into the show, should help her through it.
Lucas and Kat have been friends for a long time, and lately they've both been hoping for something more between them, but neither one of them has been brave enough to say something. Lucas is a football coach, and this was supposed to be his grand play for Kat's hand, but that was before he found out that the grand prize is a year working with a famous baker in New York.

There is a lot of tension on and off set once they arrive in Hollywood. At first Kat is afraid she'll lose. But as the competition continues she gains confidence, and realizes that she could win the whole thing. Which would be great because she has always wanted to get out of Bayou Bend, Louisiana except that it would mean leaving Lucas behind.

Overall, this was an excellent portrayal of a reality show drama, with colorful characters, drama, love, and underhanded dealings.

About the book: 
Kat Varland has had enough of chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry.

At twenty-six years old, Kat is still living in the shadows of her family in Bayou Bend, Louisiana. Still working shifts at her Aunt Maggie's bakery. Still wondering what to do with her passion for baking and her business degree. And still single.

But when Lucas Brannen, Kat's best friend, signs her up for a reality TV bake-off on Cupcake Combat, everything Kat ever wanted is suddenly dangled in front of her: creative license as a baker, recognition as a visionary . . . and a job at a famous bakery in New York.

As the competition heats up, Lucas realizes he might have made a huge mistake. As much as he wants the best for Kat, the only thing he wants for himself---her---is suddenly in danger of slipping away.

The bright lights of reality cooking wars and the chance at a successful career dazzle Kat's senses and Lucas is faced with a difficult choice: help his friend achieve her dreams . . . or sabotage her chances to keep her in Louisiana.
