Tacos for Two by Betsy St. Amant {Book Review}

**I received a complimentary copy for consideration. All thoughts are my own. 

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?

What happens when the person you are talking to on the anonymous dating app turns out to be your biggest frenemy and competition in a local food truck competition? That is just what happens in this delightful romance Tacos for Two. Does it seem perhaps a bit cheesy and predictable? Sure. Does it sound like the perfect plot for a Hallmark movie? Absolutely. Still, I love cheesy, I love Hallmark movies and I love tacos... so needless to say, I found this book to be super entertaining and fun! It was a uniquely done take on enemies to love, and of course the whole food truck concept made it even more fun... although I must say I certainly did find myself craving some tacos as I read. The characters were imperfect and as such a bit frustrating in their reactions at time, but I enjoyed their banter throughout the story and enjoyed seeing their romance grown. Overall, I found this to be a super cute romance and one that fans of clean romantic comedies are sure to enjoy!


  1. This sounds like a fun book. Thank you for the review!
