He's everything that broke her heart
Cassidy wants two things—to make her cupcake shop a success, and to forget the ex-fiance who traded her for the lights of Hollywood. She can’t stand actors, movies, or anything resembling the guy who ruined her life. So when Jase—best friend of her ex and A-list actor—shows up at the ranch to research an upcoming role, ignoring her past becomes impossible.
Jase is desperate to escape Hollywood, and ranch life gives him a temporary reprieve. But ranching is starting to feel less like preparing for a role and more like the life he’s always wanted. And he can’t help envisioning Cassidy as his co-star. Can Jase convince this stunning cupcake shop owner that he’s really a country boy at heart?
My Review: 3.5 Stars
Cassidy had put her life and her dreams on hold for her fiance, Drew, only to be left at the alter. Hurt and broken she struggles to get her life back on track. She is determined to live her dreams and put herself first for a change.
Jase is an actor who has done well for himself. But no matter how many movies he has been in or how much money he makes, he is having a hard time finding happiness in acting. He travels to Oklahoma to live on a ranch to prepare for his next movie. But while he's there, he'll question even more if acting is really what he is meant to do.
Cassidy and Jase got off to a rocky start but soon found themselves being drawn to each other. The more they got to know each other and spend time together, the more they wanted their futures to include each other. But their new found relationship is put to the test when they come face to face with Cassidy's past. Will they be able to face it together and get their happily ever after?
While I enjoyed this book, there was something missing for me. I would have like to see Jase stand up for himself a little more and put certain people in their places before disaster strikes. I would've also liked to see Cassidy have a little bit more faith in Jase, The ending also felt rushed to me. I would have love an epilogue of some kind... even if it was just a month or two down the road.
All in all Cupcakes and Cowboys was a cute, quick Saturday read. This is my first book by Lindzee Armstrong and I can tell you I will definitely be checking out more books by her. :)
And of course I can't forget my casting. This one was pretty much me because there wasn't much description of our hero and heroine. :)
