Cupcakes and Cowboys by Lindzee Armstrong
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?
I love books where Hollywood actors fall for everyday people. I always find myself excited to read those kinds of books and this one did not disappoint. The characters were developed well and I loved them. Cassidy was left by her fiance who was not a nice guy and someone who wanted to be an actor. After that happened she decided to chase after her dream of opening a cupcake shop in her hometown and to never fall for an actor again. Until Jase shows up at her ranch to learn about ranching for his upcoming movie. Jase doesn't like Hollywood and begins to love the small ranching town in Oklahoma and is intrigued by Cassidy who is giving him the cold shoulder and doesn't know why. He finally figures out why and they are able to move forward but Cassidy is worried about the fact he is an A-list actor. This is a novella that was a quick read for me because I didn't want to put it down. It could have easily been made into a novel and I would have loved it even more. It was a sweet and clean romance that makes you excited to read more books in this series.
