      Through most of the book, this story was pretty good. Nothing special, but a fun romance in a small town with a big (extended) family realistically and lovingly portrayed. But then the complexity of the characters starts to simmer and develop and I became first attached, and then (to my dismay) unable to put it down.Devlin starts well-enough as a man who loves his family and loves to help them. Unfortunately, he's highly competent and very often right so the best way to help them, obviously, is [...]

      If you haven’t visited Sugar Creek you really should. Beth Ciotta writes a heartwarming story filled with realistic characters you’d love to meet.I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to Sugar Creek. It’s a small town, nestled in the Thrush mountains and filled with interesting people, charming shops and businesses—the type that look old-fashioned from the outside while offering all the modern conveniences inside.It’s also the home of the longstanding Cupcake Lovers Club, a community organizat [...]

      I never read Beth Ciotta's stories before -- but for the past couple of months I have been on M/F contemporary romance mood, and this one appeared on my "Readers Also Enjoyed" GR page several time, so I thought I'd give it a try.Well, I guess I have to add another small-town romance series on my list!!After her fiancé dumped her for a Parisian tart right on what supposed to be her happiest day, being graduated from Culinary Arts Institute with honors, Chloe Madison decides to accept her best fr [...]

      Fool for Love is the first book in Beth Ciotta's Cupcake Lovers contemporary romance series. I started out thinking it would be a fluffy small town romance, but instead I got a really well written, insightful and sexy small town romance, with a lot more going on than just the blossoming passion between the main characters.Chloe Madison has just been dumped by her boyfriend and she's feeling very sorry for herself, especially as he did it on what should have been one of the most happiest days of [...]

      Reviewed by ValerieBook provided by the publisher for reviewReview originally posted at Romancing the BookBeth Ciotta has hit a homerun with this book! I was hooked from the first chapter and retreated into the world of laughter and romance until I turned the last page! I absolutely love books that have small town characters and while this one does, it has so much more…Chloe gets dumped by her fiancee right at the get-go. She is totally crushed and decides to accept her best friend’s suggest [...]

      The idea that the cupcake club is based on is pretty interesting - women baking for the troops and charity. I really liked this story and getting to know the people in the small Vermont town.What I enjoyed:* Daisy was a hoot. Although she took it a bit too far, you have to admire her attitude towards life.* Devlin and Chloe made a good couple, they balanced each other well and both seemed willing to work to overcome their issues.* The rest of the family. I like they had some real problems withou [...]

      I would have liked this more if the hero secretly investigating the heroine to find out if she was a suitable companion for his grandmother hadn't been a major plot point. But I liked the world that was being set up a lot, so that aspect of it was good. And I'm very curious about the next book, which is better.

      "if you live life ruled by your fears, you're not really living" cute. chick-lit. fun characters. not sure if I will continue with the next book

      Da leggerefantasticoNon vi avevo ancora parlato de La Ricetta Segreta dell' Amore perchè a dire la verità ne sono venuta a conoscenza quasi per caso. L' ho messo in lettura, incuriosita dalla storia d' amore espressa nella trama e cosa mi sono trovata alla fine? Un romance davvero scritto bene, emozionante e travolgente sotto molti punti di vista. In realtà la storia e molto semplice e gli elementi all' interno di questa potrebbero essere identificati nei soliti clichè delle storie d' amore. [...]

      This was my first romance by Beth Ciotta and it will certainly not be my last. Fool for Love has most of the things I enjoy most in my romances, a broken-hearted heroine, a over-bearing hero, a crazy cast of secondary characters and decedent desserts, how can you go wrong?A broken-hearted, Chloe Madison comes to Sugar Creek after taking a companion/cook position with Daisy Monroe, a senior member of the Cupcake Lovers and Grandmother of Devlin Monroe, our strikingly handsome, over-bearing, bossy [...]

      3.5 stars. On the day Chloe Madison finds out she's graduated from Culinary School with honors, her live-in boyfriend dumps her for the "french tart" he's been seeing. Dejected and trying to find meaning to her life, she hops a plane to Sugar Creek, Vermont hoping her temporary job as a cook and companion will give her the boost that she needs. She never expected that the quirky town, a baking group and a micro-managing financial wizard were exactly what she needed.I loved Chloe. She may have co [...]

      What a scrumptious story! Ciotta had me hooked from the very beginning. Her well written, easy flow allows you to focus on the sometimes steamy, sometimes comical story at hand. I found myself not only attracted to the subject matter but also drawn into the lives and homes of Ciotta’s characters. She gradually develops her scenery until you can easily picture the lush hillsides of Vermont and taste the delicious cupcakes.The characters are actually fantastic in this novel. The main characters [...]

      Questo romanzo si è rivelato un'autentica sorpresa positiva. Non mi aspettavo che fosse così carino! Per carità non è niente di particolarmente originale, con tanti cliché. Ma quando i cliché vengono usati nel modo giusto proprio non mi dispiace. Gli ingredienti, per restare in argomento con il titolo, ci sono tutti e nella giusta dose: bellezza, amore, amicizia, famiglia, lavoro e denaro. Il tutto condito con ironia, sensualità e leggerezza, ma neanche troppa. Insomma il libro giusto per [...]

      Dopo pochi capitoli mi sembrava di essere a Sugar Creek ad annusare i fantastici profumi di cibo che si alzavano dalle parole stampate, circondata da questa variegata ridda di personaggi che mi riempivano di curiosità: fino alla fine non ho fatto che desiderare di essere nei panni di Chloe e, quando sono arrivata all’epilogo, ho abbandonato questo libro con rammarico, ma con un sorrisone esagerato sulle labbra.Recensione completa qui: libridilo/2013/06/

      Tra le pagine di questo romanzo troverete non solo dolci godurie, ma anche l'amore di una famiglia unita, l'affetto di amici che non mancano mai nel momento del bisogno e la lussuria di un amore scoppiato all'improvviso.Lasciarsi trasportare da questa lettura è veramente semplice, ti conquista con il suo cuore zuccherato al caramello e la sua anima ardente di passione.Recensione: chelibroleggere/20

      Fool for Love is a sweet, steamy, funny, and charming romance with well-developed characters who are easy to relate to and totally draw you into the novel. Cupcakes are almost another character in this novel. All the talk about cupcakes will definitely inspire your sweet tooth and leave you longing for cupcakes. It also has recipes for cupcakes at the end.Full review available in September/October Affaire de Coeur Magazine @ adcmagazine/

      this was a pretty good book! it flowed really nicely and i always was looking forward to reading it. my boyfriend even rates it a 3.5 which is surprising since hes a guy haha. he says they could make it a good movieSPOILER:cant wait to read the next one when she starts her cupcake place :) & my favorite character is definitely Daisy

    18. Karen on said:

      A good start to a fun series. Chloe is a sweetheart and Dev is the responsible, uptight brother of the family. Chloe is hired to be a companion to Grandmother Daisy who is a handful. It was as much a pleasure to read about the two woman's antics as it was to watch Dev finally yank the pole from his rump and learn to loosen up to enjoy his lady-love Chloe.

    19. Colleen on said:

      Standard chicklit. I liked that the family was a big part of the story rather than just focusing on the would-be couple. And it talks about cupcakes a lot since the story pivots around the Cupcake Lovers Club. It was a cute twist.

    20. Kathryn on said:

      I loved everything about this book. The setting was quaint and well described, the characters were developed and likeable (I wanted to join the Monroe family) and the story line was original. I also loved the cupcake angle. That enhanced the story.

    21. Stephanie on said:

      This is the very first book that I've read from this author, and it started off really great.Just a little background on me: I've recently gotten really obsessed with TV shows set in small quirky little towns like Stars Hollow (Gilmore Girls), and Blue Bell (Hart of Dixie). After reading the synopsis for this book, I was thrilled to have finally found something set in a town resembling the ones that I've just mentioned, and it didn't really disappoint on that front. Sugar Creek seems just like B [...]

    22. Selene on said:

      Non mi ha emozionata particolarmente. Ho preferito altri libri di questo genere ma per lo meno qui la protagonista non è superficiale o perfettina, quindi si legge abbastanza bene. Devo ammettere che mi ha colpito molto di piú il personaggio di Rocky e, anche se lo stile dell’autrice non mi convince troppo, penso che proverò a leggere anche il secondo. Lettura veloce e leggera comunque. Certo, però, che molte cose rimangono incompiute. Immagino verranno spiegate nei prossimi volumi.

    23. Charlie McKenzie on said:

      What an amazingly written story, with twists and turns that will leave you on the edge of your seat and unable to put the book down even for a minute. The chemistry between Devlin and Chloe is so wonderfully written, from their very first moment. I loved this book, and would highly recommend reading it.

      originally published on The Book Tart at thebooktart/new-fiction-reI highly recommend Fool For Love! It’s everything, and more, that you could want from a contemporary romance. It is full of heart, hope, humor and heat! Chloe is a very relatable heroine that I was rooting for and wanted to be friends with. You’re introduced to her at a rough point in her life. Her boyfriend has just dumped her for a women he met on his travels and had an affair with while Chloe was finishing culinary school. [...]

      4.5 Stars! Fool for Love is my first book by Beth Ciotta. It is book one in the Cupcake Lovers series, and an introduction to an old-fashioned Vermont town and its family-oriented residents. Summary:Newly graduated chef Chloe Madison is jonesing for a fresh start. This isn't a new experience. Practically her whole life is made up of her pursuing her passions and setting about finding her dream. The difference this time is the catalyst.

      Non ho capito cosa è successo con questo libro, mi ha stregato, già dalla copertina. Girando per il web, mi sono imbattuta in questo libro, incuriosita dalla copertina ho letto la trama, e mi ha conquistata. Ho aggiunto il libro in lista, e mentre stavo per incominciare un altro, questa storia mi chiamava, non riuscivo a concentrarmi, alla fine ho ceduto. Non mi sento pentita assolutamente perchè è stata davvero una bellissima storia. Chloe Madison è una ragazza di trent'anni, fino a quel m [...]
