Jennifer Echols Week: Jennifer's Boys

Thank you Katelyn at Tales of Books and Bands for hosting
 Jennifer Echols Week!

Today's Topic: Jennifer's Boys

 Oh, Hellew favorite day of Jennifer Echols Week! 

Some people like to pair wine with a good meal, but I prefer to pair a cupcake with a good book boy. Here are a few of my favorite "Jennifer Echols' boys" and the flavor they would be if they were, in fact, a cupcake. 

(In a perfect world, you would be able to "click" on the the photos below and the cupcake associated with it would pop out of your computer...)

Grayson ~ Such A Rush

First Impression: Bossypants with anger issues.

Cupcake Flavor: Lemon Blueberry. You might think the tangy lemon would overpower the sweetness of the blueberry, but one taste of this unlikely combination reveals a surprisingly refreshing flavor.

Why We Love him: Grayson is grieving and that can bring out the ugly in anyone, you know, like their blackmail tendencies. But Grayson's not just another hot body in aviators, the boy can fly a plane!  He comes through for Leah too, like a knight in shining wingspan, reminding her that love isn't something that has to be earned.

Sam ~ Dirty Little Secret

First Impression: He has "Heart breaker" written all over him. 

Cupcake Flavor: Double Chocolate.You can see it's bad for you, but you just can't stop yourself from eating one, or ten.

Why We Love him: There were plenty of times I wanted to kick Sam in the shins. I mean, how much more of a selfish jerk could he be to Bailey?  But behind his smooth talkin' swagger, Sam's insecure, afraid he'll end up a chip off the 'ole block. It's takes one tough cupcake like Bailey to set him straight and when she does Sam will be dancin' away with her heart! (Ours too.)


Doug ~ Forget You 

First Impression: Tall, dark and in need of a serious attitude adjustment.

Cupcake Flavor: Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough. Looking at it, you think you're just getting a regular vanilla cupcake with chocolate frosting, but one bite reveals a surprise filling of warm, gooey deliciousness. 

Why We Love Him: He's been given the shaft in more ways than one, (I'm glaring at you Doug's Dad.) Underneath all that protective bravado, Doug's a sweetheart. He's also a hard worker and Oh.Em.Gee...He pulls Zoe from a BURNING CAR! Never mind that she doesn't remember yet.  

John ~ Going Too Far 

First Impression: Dude needs to pull the stick out of where the sun don't shine.
Cupcake Flavor: Peanut Butter Oreo.This cupcake is complicated. A layer of peanut butter is sandwiched between two Oreos and hidden inside a chocolate cupcake. It's delicious, but complicated. 

Jon from GOING TOO FAR by Jennifer Echols

Why We Love Him:  Man in uniform. Need I say more? Okay, yes, because Officer After has a heart of gold and abs of steel. He sees the good in Meg and is determined to make her see it too. John also understands the value of a life and refuses to let Meg settle, which is exactly what she needs. 

Adam ~ Endless Summer 

First Impression: Friend zoned, or what?

Cupcake Flavor: S'more.  Just like it's fireside counterpart, these cupcakes will have you wishing for an endless supply and saying, "S'more please!"

Why We Love him: Adam is sweet, funny and doesn't let Lori's obsession with his brother Sean keep him from proving to her that he is the one she should be with!
Determined or what?

  1. Jen, as you already know, I LOVE this post so very much! I think you did an incredible job matching up each guy to a flavor. The Grayson one made me laugh so hard because he is a bit of a sourpuss at first but he is definitely sweet.

BLOG TOUR + BAKING WITH ROTH & ZAYNE: Stone Cold Touch by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Welcome to Jenuine Cupcakes! This is my stop on the Stone Cold Touch tour and you're in for a treat because Roth and Zayne stopped by to make cupcakes for Layla. More on that in a minute. 

 ~ About the Book ~
Every touch has its price

Layla Shaw is trying to pick up the pieces of her shattered life—no easy task for a seventeen-year-old who’s pretty sure things can’t get worse. Her impossibly gorgeous best friend, Zayne, is forever off-limits thanks to the mysterious powers of her soul-stealing kiss. The Warden clan that has always protected her is suddenly keeping dangerous secrets. And she can barely think about Roth, the wickedly hot demon prince who understood her in ways no one else could.
But sometimes rock bottom is only the beginning. Because suddenly Layla’s powers begin to evolve, and she’s offered a tantalizing taste of what has always been forbidden.  Then, when she least expects it, Roth returns, bringing news that could change her world forever. She’s finally getting what …

BLOG TOUR: Frazzled by Booki Vivat (GUEST POST + GIVEAWAY)

Meet Abbie Wu! She’s about to start middle school and she’s totally in crisis.

Abbie Wu is in crisis—and not just because she’s stuck in a family that doesn’t quite get her or because the lunch ladies at school are totally corrupt or because everyone seems to have a “Thing” except her. Abbie Wu is in crisis always.

Heavily illustrated and embarrassingly honest, Frazzled dives right into the mind of this hilariously neurotic middle school girl as she tries to figure out who she is, where she belongs, and how to survive the everyday disasters of growing up. With Abbie’s flair for the dramatic and natural tendency to freak out, middle school has never seemed so nerve-racking!

Packed with hilarious black-and-white illustrations and doodles throughout, Frazzled takes readers through Abbie Wu’s hysterical middle school adventures.

Thanks for stopping by, there be cupcakes here today! *whispers* Really creepy cupcakes.
If you have followed this blog or my Instagram or Pinterest board for any length of time, you've probably seen some of the bookish cupcake creations I've made over the past few years. Book inspired cupcakes, characters as cupcake flavors, release party cupcakes, that sort of thing.Making cupcakes for people makes me happy. 
However, of all the different kinds of cupcakes I have been asked to make, today's definitely take the cake--or the cupcakes--or the finger.  Wait. What?  Stay with me, I'll explain. 
But first...
