Tacos for Two by Betsy St. Amant

This book started out cute, but fell flat for me about halfway through.

Rory inherits her beloved aunt’s food truck, but the only problem is that she can’t cook and hates the smell of cilantro. She’s also starting to fall for a mystery guy she met online.

Jude is an almost lawyer who feels trapped by an overbearing father and manipulative brother. He decides to enter a food truck competition to try and succeed at something he actually enjoys: making tacos. The best part of his day is the online chats with someone he really wants to meet in real life. Little does he know, the same girl he’s been chatting with in the evening is the one who’s competing against him.

For two characters who are supposed to be adults, this story felt more like a teenage drama. There is a lot of miscommunication and family drama, and aside from a few online chats, you hardly get any romance.

All in all, this book wasn’t really for me. But hey, it sure does have a cute cover!

⭐️ 6/10 ⭐️
