Two unlikely chefs. One life-changing contest. There can only be one winner . . . right?
Food truck owner Rory Perez may not be able to cook, but she’s determined to keep the family business out of the red. An upcoming contest during a food truck festival seems like the best way to do it. The prize money could finally give her solid financial footing, freeing up her time to meet the man she’s been talking to via an anonymous online dating site.
Jude Strong is tired of being a puppet at his manipulative father’s law firm, and the food truck festival seems like the perfect opportunity to dive into his passion for cooking and finally call his life his own. If he loses the contest, he’ll be back at the law firm for good, so failure is not an option.
But things are about to get . . . complicated. Rory’s chef gets mono, forcing her to cook after all. And Jude discovers that his stiffest competition is the same woman he’s been falling for online. Will they sacrifice the futures they’ve envisioned for the sake of love? Or will there only ever be tacos for one?
What a fun read. This has a lot of “You’ve Got Mail” elements to it which made it fun to read.
Both Rory and Jude are trying to find their way in this world. The both are suck and feel like that can’t escape, except one of them makes a move it effects the other in a negative way. From the beginning I was interested to see how the author would work this out with a happy ending. Who would compromise because either way someone had to give up something. Or would they?
Guess you’ll have to read it to find out.
