Genre: YA, Contemporary Romance
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.
This may be one of the cutest books I’ve ever read you guys! I grabbed this one when I was in the mood for something really light and fun and this was absolutely perfect, it made me smile and was just overall a super cute read. I tend to steer clear of YA in general, I maybe read ten YA books a year, (if that) but this book reminded that I need to read more, of you have any recs for fun YA romance please let me know!
You hear from Jack and Pepper in alternating chapters and I adored these two SO much! They were both charming in their own right and when you put them together you get PepperJack. No, really that’s their ship name, I mean come on!! 😍 Besides all the adorable feels this one was really funny, the Twitter war was full of snark and humor and I legit laughed out loud. SO much wit. Highly recommended by me, this was just a blast to read and I’m super impressed it was a debut.
Overall rating: 5/5
