Poppy Porter’s ex is getting married … to her ex-best friend. To land her dream job of partner in the most prestigious firm on the Upper East Side, Poppy must now pull double shifts as their wedding planner and maid of honor. And the icing on a truly craptastic cake? Leo Nass. Handsome, infuriating, womanizer, and … the best man. Despite their longstanding loathing, Poppy doesn’t see Leo coming. Literally.
One ruined cake.
One hour to save the wedding.
Can they put their hatred aside long enough to save Poppy’s job and Bridezilla’s head from exploding?
Piece of cake, right?
“To look at Leo Nass is to look at a god, but any-like impression is ruined the second he opens his mouth.”
Carmen Jenner is known for her gritty, heartfelt second chance romances. She has written everything from Biker Romances to Angsty romances that give you all the feels. So, when I heard that she was going to be writing a romantic comedy, I couldn’t wait to see what she would bring to the table…
Cake is a hilarious romantic comedy. From the moment I picked up this book, I was sucked into Leo and Poppy’s story. I fell in love with their banter and couldn’t wait for their interactions. Their banter is some of the funniest and best that I’ve encountered. Their push and pull was perfection. The “hate” and dislike between the two of them led to some delicious and intense sexual tension. And I for one could not wait to see these two explore it.
Cake is well written and has one entertaining story-line. I can’t even imagine being in some of the situations Poppy found herself in. If this were a movie, I would be hiding my face and peaking through my fingers, saying I can’t watch, I can’t watch! But, you know you can’t look away, even if you tried. Poppy’s best friend and her ex were the absolute worst, I can’t even with them. They totally had me raging. Poppy was a way better person that me, because I would have dropped those two like a bad habit.
Overall,I really enjoyed this book. It was a quick, fun and enjoyable read. I enjoyed meeting these characters and loved spending the day getting lost in their story. Carmen Jenner hit it out of the park with this romantic comedy and I look forward to seeing what she has in store for us next.

I sneak closer to the bed, my heart pounding as I throw the pillow at him. The guy shifts in his sleep, and his breathing slows, but a beat later the snoring starts again and I have to resist the urge to scream. Instead, I raise my poker and jab the sheet covered body. It’s not hard, just a quick jab or two, but he still doesn’t stir.
“Hey, asshole!” I shout, and whack him hard in the butt with my poker.
The giant freak jumps up and seizes my hand. His grip forces me to drop my weapon. He yanks me toward him—on top of him—and this is how I find myself eye to eye with the beast. He breathes his heavy, stinking breath on my face, and I wince and wrinkle my nose.
Leo’s eyes crinkle in the corners as he laughs. “Morning, Pop Tart.”
“Get the hell out of my bed. And brush your goddamn teeth. What are you doing in my house, Nass?”
“Ah, still feisty, huh? Is this like an all-day thing with you, or do you eventually turn from an angry sea witch into a person? Would coffee help?”
“Fuck you, Leo.”
“Darlin’, you wish.”
“You’re disgusting. I wouldn’t touch you if—”
“Yeah, yeah, if I were the last man on Earth. I’ve heard it all before, sweet cheeks, and I don’t buy it for a second.” He flips us so suddenly my head spins. I’m beneath him, my wrists pinioned to the bed above my head by just one of his strong hands. The other glides up my side. My sheets have twisted up around us, but from this angle it looks as if Leo Nass is very much naked in my bed.
“Goddamn it,” I complain once I find my voice. “I’m going to need to burn these sheets after you leave.”
His eyebrow quirks, and the grin he gives me is all-out salacious. He shifts his weight between my legs, then he drops his hips and grinds his erection against me. I’m stunned, speechless. I have no words. They’ve all left me because my brain has turned to mush and my vagina is the only one thinking, and I’m really not okay leaving her in charge. “Why burn them when we’re not done messing them up?”
