Throwback Review: Cupcake (Cyd Charisse #3) by Rachel Cohn


I previously had a different book blog, and I had a bunch of problems with the hosting company I used for the blog, and all of my content was deleted.  I managed to salvage some of my reviews from back then by compiling what  I wrote on Goodreads, Amazon, and Barnes and Nobles review sections.  See some that I have already posted here.


Goodreads Summary:

When Cyd Charisse moves from San Francisco to start a new life in New York City, she leaves behind her family — and her true love, Shrimp.She wants to find a cool job, the city’s best caffeination and most perfect cupcake, and a hot new love. But the reality of CC’s new life hits some unexpected obstacles, including a broken leg that renders her immobile; the joy and aggravation of sharing an apartment with a roommate who’s also an older brother; and a tasty selection of guys — none of whom measure up to Shrimp.

Then, just when CC starts to get her new life on track, her old love returns. Shrimp has given up on his plans to live and surf in New Zealand and arrives in NYC with nothing to do other than to be with CC. And this time CC is determined that she and Shrimp will not repeat their old mistakes.

This third book about reformed hellion Cyd Charisse is just as unforgettable as “Gingerbread” and “Shrimp.”

My Thoughts:

I was so disappointed with this book!! CC just annoyed me so much. Does she want to be with Shrimp, does she want to be on her own? She goes back and forth so much, it was just frustrating. I knew from the beginning that she was going to own Luncheonette, so that was no surprise. I am surprised her family was willing to fund it though, given they wanted her in school so badly. I guess because Danny is going to be her partner, they are confident that it will be ok. Or not, because his first cafe went under, and they are all just rich enough to do whatever they wasn’t. Meh. If you liked the first two, there isn’t a real reason you have to finish the series with this book.
