The Review

Oh dear.

Yes it is another one of those reviews in which I didn’t particularly like a book. I hate writing those.

Love’s a Piece of Cake by Eva Jordan is a story about Kate, a girl who is unlucky in love. She chooses the wrong guy and her life turns to poop. On top of that her professional life seems to be hitting the rocks as well. However, like most romantic fiction there is a happy ending because let’s face it, it would be pretty crappy if there wasn’t.

My problem with Love’s a Piece of Cake wasn’t the premise of the story. I like cake, I like love stories and I like fiction so you are pretty much on to a winner there. I think my issue had to do with the protagonist. She was portrayed as being in love with love and not with the actual characters. I don’t remember any description of the good things about the love interest that would make me root for him. Kate seemed far too fickle and that she wanted to be in a relationship so much that she didn’t really care with whom.

I saw so much potential in this story but it just wasn’t developed enough and it was far too quick a story. It was like someone had taken pictures of the important pieces and flipped through them really quickly and expected an emotional pull. For me it just didn’t work.
