Title: Always Room for Cupcakes
Author: Bethany Lopez
Published: February 2016
One day I was be-bopping along jamming to the music in my head while wondering if my thighs could handle grabbing a cupcake on the way home. The next thing I knew, my entire world crashed and burned.
I used to wake up at night in a sweat, crying because I’d dreamt that my husband was cheating on me, or that he hated me, and resented my kids. He’d always hold me close and tell me it was all just a dream, that he loved me and our family and that he’d never let me go.
He was a fucking liar.
Now I spend my days taking photos of scum just like him, trying to be a champion for other’s being taken advantage of by the losers in our town, and my nights being a single mom to my beautiful twins.
I’ve got great friends who have my back, and a sexy, mysterious motorcycle man who keeps showing up when I need him. Maybe things are starting to look up, and one thing’s for sure… There’s always room for cupcakes.

Ana will put Always Room for Cupcakes on her third shelf!!
3.5 stars!! This was a fun, quick read that mixed romance with suspense and even a bit of humor to bring it all together. My first thought as I started this book was “WOW…how long has it been since I’ve read a Bethany Lopez book?” The reason is that this is definitely an adult book – one filled with adult situations and language – and I think I’ve somehow put Ms. Lopez in the YA category in my mind. What’s that got to do with anything, you ask? Well, I was surprised, and pleasantly so! The author has a great voice, no matter the genre, and I love that I can read a variety of books by her!
