Review: Tacos for Two by Betsy St. Amant



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?

My Thoughts:

What a cute romance about a couple who is competing to win a contest in a food truck contest. But there is much more to this story than either character can imagine.

Rory Perez has inherited her late aunt's food truck and she is responsible for her cousin as well. The only thing, and it is a big one, is she can't cook and she has tried to learn, but it is just not her thing.

Jude Strong works with his dad and brother in a very prestigious law firm. He has no interest in law and enjoys cooking and is toying with the idea of opening a food truck. Jude also cannot stand the constant high handedness from his family and would like to just break free and do what he loves.

This story of Jude and Rory, who are enemies to lovers, are quite a fun couple to watch. Both are stubborn and have much to lose if they do not win the contest. There is another glitch that is going on as well in the story, and the scene in the restaurant when Rory finds out was a wowzer. This was a fun one.

I received a copy of this novel from the publisher I was not required to post a positive review and all views and opinions are my own.
