Tacos for Two
Rory Perez, a food truck owner who can’t cook, is struggling to keep the business she inherited from her aunt out of the red--and an upcoming contest during Modest’s annual food truck festival seems the best way to do it. The prize money could finally give her a solid financial footing and keep her cousin with special needs paid up at her beloved assisted living home. Then maybe Rory will have enough 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. But if he loses the contest, he’s back at the law firm for good. Failure is not an option.
Complications arise when Rory’s chef gets mono and she realizes she has to cook after all. Then Jude discovers that his stiffest competition is the same woman he’s been falling for online the past month. Will these unlikely chefs sacrifice it all for the sake of love? Or will there only ever be tacos for one?
I liked this book. It was a sweet and fun read. The "You Got Mail" references were cute. The food cooking was making my mouth watering. It was as if I could smell and taste the food with the descriptions.
I liked both Rory and Jude. They both are humble and easy going. The chemistry between them was good but I actually was feeling it better when they were messaging each other under their profile names...StrongerMan99 and ColorMeTurquoise. They could share a witty banter this way. In person they were a bit more business like focusing on the competition. Overall, I did enjoy this book and will be reading more books by this author.
