Everybody dreams of a Hawaiian Vacation…

They sell you on the drinks with little umbrella’s, dolphin watching, and long walks on the beach. Which probably happens, if you’re that lucky schmuck living out your dream with your destination wedding, but if you’re a fish out of water PI like me, there’s no time for relaxing because trouble is never far behind.

Instead of cocktails, I ended up dealing with the seedy underbelly of The Big Island.
And, I didn’t see one damn dolphin while undercover on a boat which was spilling over with drug dealers, Kingpins, and Pedophiles.

Elin and Elena think Cade’s family are the coolest people outside of Snapchat, but it’s hard to meet the parents when your boyfriend is in his late thirties and has never had a serious relationship.

I’d never missed my girls so much in my life, but Amy May, Bea, and Carmen are all dealing with issues of their own, and can’t come to my rescue.

The only thing that may help me with this “vacation” is if I could get Lei’d with Cupcakes.



Tracey’s Review

Who wouldn’t love a vacation in Hawaii? I mean, sun, sand, surf, how much more relaxing and attractive could a destination be? Add in meeting the family of the man of your dreams, and it should be nothing but smooth sailing. Unless your Lila Compton, because, even when she wants to take it easy, chances are good that things will not go as planned.

Author Bethany Lopez has brought her ‘A’ game again with LEI’D WITH CUPCAKES, the third book in her Cupcakes series. Besides the sun and fun, this is a read chock-full of all of the things that make these books so enjoyable.

Lila’s her same snarky, sassy, jump-right-in self, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. She doesn’t even have to look for trouble in Paradise, because it finds her anyway, and she more than rises to the occasion. Aided by Cade and his family and friends, Lila never stops kicking butt and taking names.

We finally get to see a different side of Cade here, and, if possible, I love him even more. He’s still the big, strong, take-charge alpha guy that we know and love, but being home with his family shows his softer, more relaxed side. There’s a moment (and you’ll know it when you see it) that was so seriously swoony that I could just see it, that endeared him to me forever.

I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the previous books in this series, because the characters are engaging, there is such a strong emphasis on friends and family, and they constantly make me laugh out loud. LEI’D WITH CUPCAKES has all of this and more, and leaves me hoping for more shenanigans with the whole crazy crew. 4.5 sweet, sexy, action-packed stars for this treat of a read.
