“Something should happen: a thunderbolt should erupt, a car should crash, a bell should ring. There should be a soundtrack—some horrible, frightening sound to accompany the news of your ex-boyfriend marrying one of your best friends from high school. Especially when you’re still in love with him.”
No, of course she wasn’t going. Are you insane? For 29-year-old academic Mina Joseph, attending Ella Hutchinson’s destination wedding would be the ultimate act of lunacy. It would be much safer to stay in her shitty studio in Boston so she could stalk the Facebook pages of the bride, groom, and every other guest in attendance before falling asleep in a box of tears and Wheat Thins.
But Luke’s best man, the insufferably charming Benjamin Fogarty, has different plans for Mina. Both desperate to break up the mismatched couple before they say their “I do’s” and convinced that Luke is still in love with Mina (though he can’t figure out why), Ben offers her a plane ticket and a wad of cash to come out of hiding to seduce the groom. Armed with a new wardrobe, devious friends, and copious amounts of tequila, Mina has five days to rekindle her love with Luke, expose Ella for the certifiable psychopath that she is, and at all costs, avoid having sex with the best man, regardless of how hot it could be.
What people are saying:
“I’ll say it, I want to marry this book! One of the better books I’ve read this year. I have a feeling that it will blow all my future reads out of the water. It was not only fun and witty, but also emotional. I felt like I was sucked into one amazing romantic comedy. One that I would watch again and again.”
“An unbelievably excellent story of deceit, romance, hope and longing, with a truck load of frivolous fun, laughter, and a bloody awesome ending…Here for the Cake would have to be the BEST “chick lit” book I’ve ever read. It is a feel-good book that although had some sad parts, was a fantastically uplifting story.”
“Such a fun read. Loved the characters, the story, the shenanigans. Highly recommend this well-written, entertaining read.”
“Here for the Cake is one of those books that you find and are BLOWN away with how funny, witty, emotional and just wonderful it is. When I was asked to review this book for Emily Poule I knew I would enjoy this story but as it turns out I LOVED this story! I could not stop reading this, I found myself squeezing in a few pages or just a chapter waiting in lines, at carpool and while my kids were eating breakfast. Emily Poule took romantic comedy and knocked it out of the park!”
