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?

My thoughts: I enjoyed this You've Got Mail romcom book that is set against the backdrop of the food truck scene in Texas. Fans of the famous romcom will enjoy the new twist of the story and how they characters quote the movie back and forth to one another, little realizing how their own romance will mirror the movie. 
I enjoyed the food truck scene and found myself wishing that this book came with recipes! I could relate to Rory, as she struggled with what her dreams were as apposed to the legacy that she felt she needed to honor by continuing to run the food truck in her aunt's memory. This is a fun story! 
I received this book from the publisher. This is my honest review.
