I went on a date with a movie star.

I was in ninth grade and had known Michael for a couple of years. He was in an after-school movie and if my memory serves me, he was the main character. We were friends and had actually been cast together in a one-act play in my drama class. When he asked me out, I didn’t know how to say no, so I went.

An actor researching a role. A cupcake cake shop owner with a broken heart. Can he convince her she’s more than a stand-in heroine?

Cassidy Erickson refuses to obsess over the fame-chasing ex-fiancé who left her at the altar. Instead, she’s focused on making her new cupcake shop a success. Then the unthinkable happens. Jase Larson—A-list actor and co-star of her heartless ex—shows up at the family ranch to research an upcoming role.

Jase’s career is taking off, but years of chasing the perfect role hasn’t filled the emptiness in his heart. When he visits Sunset Plains to prepare for a cowboy film, it feels like the place he was always meant to be—especially when he meets Cassidy, the stunning cupcake shop owner who can’t seem to stand him. Too bad it’s all temporary and he’s returning to Hollywood in a month.

When a freak lighting storm fries the appliances at Cassidy’s cupcake shop, Jase becomes her unexpected hero. But Cassidy can’t shake the fear that she’s just a fill-in heroine. Can Jase convince her that he’s really a country boy at heart before he loses her forever?

This is a full-length sweet/clean contemporary romantic comedy that will delight readers who love Hallmark movies. Each book in this series by USA Today bestselling author Lindzee Armstrong can be read as a stand-alone.

This story was previously published as Cupcakes and Cowboys. It has been revised to connect to the No Match for Love series, and expanded so that it is now double the length of the original!

Cassidy had a big trust issue – at least where actors were concerned. After having her heart yanked out and stomped all over by one, there was no way she was going to risk that happening again!

Once again, Lindzee Armstrong has written a romantic story that combines humor and serious moments. I liked the way that Jase was willing to jump in to help at the cupcake shop and how he respected Cassidy’s need for independence and still found ways to help her as she struggled with issues.

Though this is part of the series about the Toujour matchmaking company, there isn’t any matchmaking in this one. This is a rewrite of “Cupcakes and Cowboys” to integrate it into the No Match for Love series. New scenes have been added and others were redone. Jase was first introduced in Match Me By Christmas, on the Toujour run matchmaking cruise where Cassidy’s brother Shawn was the cruise director. While I remembered some of the details from the original story, it has been long enough that other than remembering after I started a section that it was familiar, I couldn’t even tell you what changed.

If you are looking for a light-hearted romance with lovable characters, I recommend this one.
