The publisher kindly provided me with a digital copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
A fresh, irresistible rom-com from debut author Emma Lord about the chances we take, the paths life can lead us on, and how love can be found in the opposite place you expected.
Meet Pepper, swim team captain, chronic overachiever, and all-around perfectionist. Her family may be falling apart, but their massive fast-food chain is booming ― mainly thanks to Pepper, who is barely managing to juggle real life while secretly running Big League Burger’s massive Twitter account.
Enter Jack, class clown and constant thorn in Pepper’s side. When he isn’t trying to duck out of his obscenely popular twin’s shadow, he’s busy working in his family’s deli. His relationship with the business that holds his future might be love/hate, but when Big League Burger steals his grandma’s iconic grilled cheese recipe, he’ll do whatever it takes to take them down, one tweet at a time.
All’s fair in love and cheese ― that is, until Pepper and Jack’s spat turns into a viral Twitter war. Little do they know, while they’re publicly duking it out with snarky memes and retweet battles, they’re also falling for each other in real life ― on an anonymous chat app Jack built.
As their relationship deepens and their online shenanigans escalate ― people on the internet are shipping them?? ― their battle gets more and more personal, until even these two rivals can’t ignore they were destined for the most unexpected, awkward, all-the-feels romance that neither of them expected.
Tweet Cute by Emma Lord Review
As soon as I heard about Tweet Cute, I’ve had a huge desire to read it. I’m so so happy that I enjoyed it as much as I did.
Tweet Cute follows Pepper, who helps run the social media account for her family’s restaurant chain. A local restaurant accuses Pepper’s family restuarant of stealing their grilled cheese recipe and a Twitter war ultimately occurs. When Pepper finds out that her school nemesis Jack is behind the other Twitter account, war between them is no longer kept behind the screen.
I really enjoyed the premise of this story. It’s really great to see how both of these characters will do anything they can to protect their family and their businesses. It definitely leads to some crazy moments! I also think its hilarious that they’re arguing about grilled cheese and their names are Pepper and Jack … aka Pepperjack!
I also really enjoyed the lighthearted romance in this book. It is a total slow-build but it’s really cute and sweet. And certainly falls into the category of an enemy-to-lover type romance, which is one of my favourite tropes!
In general, this book is super cute and fluffy. I read it really quickly and think it’s perfect for the times you just want something lighthearted to read.
I highly recommend checking it out Tweet Cute by Emma Lord when it releases this week. It really is an enjoyable, cute contemporary and a great debut novel!
