Happy Monday evening, everyone! Or night, I suppose. It’s almost ten o’clock here. I have a “kinda” cover reveal today. Kinda because the pre-order has been up since the eleventh. Yep, I dropped the ball on that one. My bad.
But first, I want to tell you about something spectacular. Something life changing. Something chocolate.
That, my dears, is fried Texas sheet cake. Fried. Chocolate. Cake.
Now, you’re probably wondering where in the world you would find such a thing. Three words for you: Texas State Fair.
If you’re a newsletter subscriber, you know we were in Dallas last week. And as you can tell from the picture, I found the chocolate cake. Was it amazing? Was it decadent? Was it too chocolatey for a mere mortal?
Yes, actually. It was all that and more. I doubt I will ever get the chance to eat another, but it was worth it. Now, according to my husband, it didn’t hold a candle to the fried Twinkie. He’s wrong though. It’s all about the chocolate.
Anyway, onto the cover reveal!

Fueled by love and determination, twenty-one-year-old Harper took a great leap of faith and transferred home from college to finally declare her feelings to Brandon, the boy who’s adored her since they were children.
There was only one thing that could derail her perfect plan, and that was Brandon showing up with a new girlfriend the very same weekend.
Now slightly bitter and irked at the world, Harper focuses her time and attention on making her sister’s childhood dream come true: she’s going to meet Mason Knight, former lead singer of the wildly popular Forever Now band. All Harper has to do is bake her way onto the nationally televised cookie competition he happens to be judging. Easy. Until she finds herself partnered with Sadie–Brandon’s vapid, wide-eyed, hair-of-many-bottle-blond-colors girlfriend.
Just when Harper’s ready to throw in the towel, she collides with entitled, pretty-boy, celebrity-judge Mason. Except he’s not entitled, and with his sharp eyes and chiseled jaw, there’s nothing pretty about him. Suddenly, Harper doesn’t just want in the competition–she wants to win. Even if that means she has to play nice with Sadie to accomplish it…
