Tweet Cute
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.

I also loved the will-they-won’t-they romance, and how Pepper and Jack circled each other tentatively, as if the other person was a fire whose warmth they craved but knew might burn. There’s also a helping of family drama that kept me riveted; this is a web of people, after all, not just a few clashing separate relationships, and all the characters step wholly into the page.I felt genuinely buoyed by the sweetness of the story washing quietly about me, and was reluctant to put down the novel, eyes aching from twisting themselves around the words, until I reached the very last page.This charming yet emotionally charged novel casts a spell, and I’m already looking forward to reading it again.

Jack's POV I especially loved. As I have mentioned in many other reviews: books that feature a written communication between the main characters are always a winner for me. Be it email, texts, letters or even tweets - I am weak for these. As much I loved seeing them outsmarting the other on twitter and online, the sweet moments they had IRL was so precious. “[...] the issue isn’t so much what I want to be, but whether or not I can be it without hurting everyone else in the process.” It was so beautiful watching these two connect over the outside pressure they both feel. This book was filled with cuteness and banter and hilarious tweets. BUT it was also layered and had many other important and beautiful aspects that I thought added to my love for this story. It was honestly just so wholesome and feel good and I wanted to hug Pepper and Jack so badly 😭. I am excited for whatever Emma Lord has next for us!

Was this seriously a debut novel? Tweet Cute by Emma Lord is one of the best YA contemporary/rom-com's I've read in so long. It was adorable, endearing, and made me laugh out loud more than once. I loved the modern day, high school spin of the 'You've Got Mail' type of story line, and it was so much fun to read! Jack and Pepper go to the same prep school in NYC. Pepper is the overachieving student who is captain of the swim team and is constantly striving to be perfect in all things. Jack is an identical twin and feels like he lives in the shadow of his more popular brother Ethan. He works for his family's deli, and Pepper is helping her mom with their chain of Big League Burger's twitter account. When the BLB steals one of the most popular items on the deli's menu, a twitter war ensues. And Pepper and Jack are caught right in the middle of the cross-hairs. Only they don't know it... at first. Once they figure it out, it goes from being a straight up rivalry/war to more of a game. The banter between these two was top notch and you could feel the chemistry oozing from them every time they were around each other. I loved watching these two connect and become friends of sorts. I think my favorite part of the book was watching them fall for each other and truly connect on a deeper level in an online anonymous school app Jack created as Wolf and Bluebird. The app is where they went when they both needed a real world break. Things changed rather drastically for them, as they went from being normal high school students to the faces of their respective businesses that strangers on the internet were shipping. It was a huge shock. "Maybe just Pepper and Jack, then," I concede. There's a ghost of a smirk on Pepper's face, but she's so close, I can hear it more than see it. "Pepper and Jack." She corrects me. Then her eyes light up. "Pepperjack." Pepper was snarky and witty, and Jack was the absolute best. They both had a lot of expectations placed on them, and much of this book was a coming of age story of them figuring out life and what they wanted to do for themselves despite this family feud their family businesses have going on and all the outside pressure. Tweet Cute is a strong YA debut that's highly entertaining, well written, and charming. Also, be prepared for this book to make you want some sweets! I would love to have a few of Pepper's dessert recipes! This book was fantastic and I recommend it whole heartily!

Also, thanks for the ARC that has been provided through Netgalley. This of course, did not affect my opinions on this book.★ So, when I read the synopsis of this book, I just knew I had to read it. I don’t read much romance but I like to read one in a while. The synopsis promises food, twitter, haters to lovers, fluffy romance and in addition to that there were many puns!★ The writing is very accessible and easy to read. after reading a few pages, my kindle app showed that I need 4 hours to finish it so I finished it fairly quickly and I would be reading for an hour without realizing that. The book is not very lyrical, so there was not many quotes that I highlighted but at the same time, I prefer this for a contemporary story. If you know me, then you know I love puns and as I mentioned above, there were puns and snarky tweets in this book! “You know, for someone named Pepper, you’re pretty salty about losing.” ★ I liked the characters, Pepper and Jack were both humans, they were not all black or white and I enjoyed that we got to see all their sides! The romance was fluffy, cute and clean! I don’t think there was anything explicit in this one. I was conflicted about one thing that Jack did but the author apparently does not encourage it and it was explained later and he regretted it. The parents in this book were also realistic, I like the fact that the book tackles some important issues such as graduation and what to do next, following our dreams and most importantly not comparing ourselves to others (I liked that the comparison was between 2 twins who look exactly alike).★ The plot seems to depend on coincidences but at the same time, I lived enough to see that this kind of stories really happens in real life. The book name implies that Twitter is involved and it was, although I wish we have seen more tweets! People who don’t know the website may be slightly confused of how twitter works but I don’t think it is enough to change the reading experience. I was in the mood for something light and fluffy and this book delivered. “I’d be much more disappointed if you didn’t go out in the world and do something you loved because you wanted to make me happy.” ★ Summary and Prescription: I believe this book will be fairly successful when it comes out. I don’t have much to criticize, I liked the characters, the plot and the writing.

In the first 40%, whatever Jack and Pepper are trying to play against each other on Twitter is totally CHILDISH. I wouldn’t say like this if they tweet against each other by using personal account but they don’t. They use their restaurant official account to tweet which I don’t think anyone would do it in real life since it might cause a lot of problems to their business. But after that, I’m annoyed because when Jack and Pepper already stop tweeting, Pepper’s mom and Ethan (Jack’s identical twin) don’t. They continue tweeting and tweeting against each other. It annoys me so much that ughhh I want to burn Twitter down!(Which is in fact, I absolutely cannot do that because Twitter is my life.🤣)Despite that, I truly enjoy the rest of the story especially the WEAZEL app thing. I really love the idea of this application that I wish I could hire Jack to create this application in real life!To sum up, I would say that this book is a fun and quick read for everyone. It’s really easy to enjoy because the story is cute and the characters are hilarious as hell. (Sorry for an inappropriate word but this word can describe best.😂)And if you think this book seems cheesy, I can confirm that you’re right, it’s cheesy. But who cares? Sometimes we just need a cheesy book to read!

It was created by their Grandma and has been on their family’s New York City deli menu for decades.Shocked and chagrined by the announcement, Jack turns to Twitter to call BLB out. That one tweet sparks an epic Twitter battle that takes not just NYC, but the world by storm!Little does he know, at the other end of the Big League Burger Twitter account, is an overachieving classmate of his, Pepper.Pepper is not native to NYC, having moved there at the start of high school, leaving her hometown of Nashville behind. Feeling lost and alone in the big city, Pepper throws herself into her studies with an intensity unmatched by most of her peers at the super competitive private school in which she is enrolled.Unfortunately, neither teen is prepared for the physical and emotional toll the social media battle will have on them. Over time, neither Jake, nor Pepper feels good about the whole thing and both wish they weren’t involved. They're losing sleep and other more wholesome activities begin to take a backseat to the nonstop drama fest.At school, Pepper and Jake begin to see more of each other and a precious friendship develops.Little do they know, they have also been corresponding for months on an anonymous direct messaging app created by Jake and used by everyone in their school.Assigned the pseudonyms, Wolf and Bluebird, their flirty banter is a ray of light in both their lives. But when Jack inadvertently figures out who Bluebird is, how will he navigate transitioning their relationship from the screen to real life.Full of heart, humor and delicious food, Tweet Cute is sure to delight readers of all ages. I absolutely ate up this story from beginning to end. There is so much more to this than I have words to describe here. Great friendships, fantastic character growth, witty banter, this book truly brought it all!Pepper and Jack were both so well developed. The challenges they faced as they completed high school, trying to figure out what they wanted to do with their lives, were really well handled. Family is a big influence on this story as well and I thought those elements were so relatable and well written.I am really impressed with this as a debut novel. The pacing and plot twists were expertly crafted to keep the reader engaged throughout.Thank you so much to the publisher, Wednesday Books, for providing me with a copy of this to read and review, as well as including me in the blog tour.It has been so much fun and I wish Emma Lord the best with this release.

Before I go further with my review, let me just say this: the book met my expectations.In this story, we meet Pepper and Jack. Pepper is the smart overachiever and the daughter of giant fast food chain Big League Burger's owners. Jack is the class clown who feels that he is overshadowed by his twin and he is the son of the owner of the deli, Girl Cheesing.When BLB introduces a grilled cheese on their menu, Girl Cheesing called copycat on Twitter which began a Twitter war. Both Pepper and Jack have control on each company's twitter account and they focus on trying to one up the other.In the world where Twitter wars happening everyday, and brands being snarky and meme-addicted, this was such a fun book to read.I love getting inside the minds of both Pepper and Jack, especially when they use the anonymous chat app, Weazel. Both Pepper and Jack were loving and responsible children and watching them learn more about each other while learning about themselves was such a great experience.Though fun and cheesy, this book also hits serious notes like pursuing your passions, sibling rivalries, friendship, honesty, education, and deciding on your career paths.All in all, this was a great debut for other Emma Lord.

Happy publication day to this concoction of teenage angst and romance. ⤐ Overall.When the publisher granted my wish to read and review this book in advance, I was totally over the moon. Seriously, the e-mail made me smile like a doofus - at 6.45 am. I am n.o.t. a morning person, so this says loads about the hopes I had for this book. I expected a cute and funny love-story with a lot of teenage-angst and issues my past teenager self could relate to. I was not disappointed.I felt especially invested in the book when the main characters had arguments with their parents. Having turned 25 myself this year, I still have these kind of arguments with my mom where you seem to work all the logic into arguing your case and also knowing it is definitely you who should leave the courtroom of family arguments as the winner, whereas my mother is hell-bent on staying convinced she did nothing wrong and it is, in fact, her being victimized and not she making herself the victim just because that seems to be the easier role. Only midway through the book I actually consciously realised that I was following the story of teenagers, not in fact, kids about to graduate from college. And it really disagreed with me. Recalling just too well how I was at the age of 17 it just seemed a bit implausible, to name their self-confident, wise-beyond-their-years attitude. And before y'all hit me with that "That's what happens when you work [at your parents' business] from a young age on"-crap; s.h.u.s.h. I worked at my fathers bakery and tutored younger kids from a very early age on.Throughout the 3.5 days it took me to get through this lovely book I always caught myself being excited to get back to it.⤐ What’s happening.Pepper. She can't remember the last time she was able to let go of all the <stress and pressure of handling being at a prestigious high school where she has swim captain duties and needs to keep top of the class grades, the booming franchise business of her parents' burger place Big League Burger, mediating between her mother and her sister Paige, and keeping up their food blog. Pepper, much like me, has peculiar ways of dealing with her stress; baking: Add chocolate chips, butter, flour, salt, cocoa powder, eggs, and more embarrassment than the body of a teenage girl can possibly contain, set the oven to a bajillion degrees and set the whole damn thing on fire. There are only two things that bring Pepper relief: the blissful hours she spends at the swimming pool and chatting at anonymously with the mysterious Wolf. Being able to be herself is a rare enough thing with her mother burdening her with the task to make their business a twitter-sensation.Jack. Although he loves his family's deli Girl Cheesing to bits, it is hard to always compete with the older twin for some recognition, both from his family and his fellow school mates. Golden boy Ethan always seems to excel at whatever he is doing, even though sometimes it's actually Jack doing those things for him. I resent the assumption that just because I don't have debate club practices or someone to make out with on the steps of the Met, his time is somehow worth more than mine. It is adorable how Jack is almost like the great Chandler Bing in his way to deal with all the uncomfortable situations he finds himself in. "Two people asked for my number."[, Ethan says]"You already have a boyfriend", I remind him, poking one eye out to glare."And I told them that.""But you didn't think to mention you have an identical twin?" His two opportunities for a timeout from the life he feels alienated from are his passion for building apps and chat-time with Bluebird. She seems so honest and at ease with him even though there are only few intimate details they share with each other as not to reveal their true identities. PepperJack. Being a student at a school that enforces a competitive spirit that goes way beyond what is healthy and productive for a decent learning environment sure ain't child's play. It is aspects such as this one that makes me shake my head in disbelief when I catch people making jokes about students and how they have it easy. They don't.Whereas their paths only cross for official school matters in a somewhat detached way, is is the online time they spend with each other unknowingly that gives them a reason to smile. But all of a sudden, their real-life interaction becomes much more personal in more than just one way: on the one hand, they need to arrange their two teams to share the pool and on the other hand, they unknowingly begin a twitter-war each being the business opponent of the other that get's way too personal way too quickly. As the tweets become meaner one cannot help but wonder if the connection that is coming together between the two will survive the spitfire between Girl Cheesing and Big League Burger. Especially, since it seems to surpass the borders of friendship._____________________ Writing quality + easy of reading = 5* pace = 4* plot development = 4* characters = 4* enjoyability = 4* insightfulness = *_____________________This eArc was provided by Wednesday Books via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    So, before actually starting this book, I had a feeling this would be cute (and honestly that's as high as my hopes were because I've been burned before!) but by 49% I knew I would love this. And I did. Side note, I know 49% doesn't sound impressive considering it's halfway through the book and most people can see the writing on the wall by that point, but this felt.. long. Not in a bad way, but this is a substantial romance read, so.

Not in a bad way, but this is a substantial romance read, so. I don't know, I don’t know why I'm defending this point, regardless, I loved it, let's move on!This contemporary is chock full of all the best kind of tropes. Opposites attract, secret identities, business rivalry, slowburn, friends-to-more.. also, lots and lots of sassy tweets and memes.Additionally, the author leaned into these tropes but made them better? I don't know. If you've seen You've Got Mail, it's pretty obvious how some of the events go down, and yet it felt less cheesy (hah!) and far more layered (with cheese?).Pepper and Jack both have very real soul-searching to do, compounded by very real expectations, and obstacles, set in place by their parents. I'll admit the area of the parentals is kind of where things got dragged down a bit for me, in particular I struggled with Pepper's mom, but I do feel things are wrapped up nicely without it all feeling like a cop-out or too far fetched. It doesn't mean I liked how things went down, but, I mean, there are underlying motivations that pushed everything in motion.But back to Pepperjack. These two, I mean, wow. I loved how these two interacted from the very first page. It was such a gradual shift but it was so well done. The chemistry, everything, was just sweet and awkward and perfect. The banter sprinkled throughout, the humour infused in so many situations, even outside of the MCs, was so great. I laughed, nay, giggled, at so many spots. But it was the quiet moments, too, particularly between the two leads, which were just.. special. You really felt their connection, their understanding of each other, and that more than anything made this book wonderful.This was such a fantastic debut and I look forward to more people reading it the closer we get to release (it's November, as I write this, lolz), and am so excited to see what Lord has for us next. I'll definitely be first in line to get my hands on it. ** I received an ARC from NetGalley and the publisher (thank you!) in exchange for an honest review. **---This review can also be found at A Take From Two Cities.

(Also, why aren't there more books like this?!)Anyway, Tweet Cute follows Pepper and Jack (hah, yeah, PepperJack) as they get caught up in their family business's tweet war. Pepper has a knack for feisty tweets, so when a mom and pop cafe accuses hers of copying a recipe, her mom forces her to take over Twitter with her snarky responses. What Pepper doesn't know is the cafe she's tweeting at is none other than Jack, a kinda-rival-of-sorts's family business. He's behind the other Twitter account, tweeting right back at her. What Pepper ALSO doesn't know, is that Jack is her anonymous internet friend via a secretive classmate app. And in turn, Jack doesn't know either is Pepper ... until he catches her in the act of tweeting on her cafe's account.Thus the fun sort of drama ensues. I won't say much more, but I enjoyed Jack's character and how he interacted with Pepper. The tweet war was fun, and so was the general not-knowing stuff. I think I craved a little more at times, and maybe even a bigger blow up at the end? This one wasn't unsatisfying per say, but I think I wanted a bit more feels when everything came back together in the end.Either way, it was a cute, easy read that I devoured within a few days! Thank you to Macmillan audio for the wonderful audiobook!! Great narration. [email protected] on Insta!

    4.5 stars, rounded up. Could this book be any more adorable?Pepper is an overachiever. She's in her senior year at a prestigious New York City private school, captain of the swim team, and hyper-focused on getting into Columbia. She's also in charge of social media for her family's fast-food chain, Big League Burger. The company has come a long way since her parents opened the first store in Nashville; now her mother is the ruthless CEO looking to expand, leaving Pepper and the rest of her 4.5 stars, rounded up. Could this book be any more adorable?Pepper is an overachiever. She's in her senior year at a prestigious New York City private school, captain of the swim team, and hyper-focused on getting into Columbia. She's also in charge of social media for her family's fast-food chain, Big League Burger. The company has come a long way since her parents opened the first store in Nashville; now her mother is the ruthless CEO looking to expand, leaving Pepper and the rest of her family hanging on.Jack's family owns a neighborhood deli, Girl Cheesing. While he and his twin brother Ethan grew up working there, since Ethan is more popular and more involved in high school, Jack's family expects he'll run the deli in the future. Jack dreams of developing apps, and in fact has developed a popular chat app for their high school, but he's also in charge of the deli's not particularly active social media presence. And in his spare time, he loves needling Pepper in class.When one day Big League Burger steals Girl Cheesing's iconic grilled cheese recipe, Jack isn't willing to let that action go unnoticed. He starts taunting the larger company on Twitter and the only thing Pepper can do, egged on by her mother, is respond in kind. (Memes, GIFs, and sarcasm abound.)While Pepper and Jack don't realize at first that they're the other's social media nemesis, it's not long before their identities become known to each other. Neither is really interested in keeping the Twitter war going, but both are being encouraged (or, in Pepper's case, compelled) to continue, so they propose a more friendly and competitive arrangement. However, they keep getting thwarted by family members on both sides.Meanwhile, as their friendly rivalry goes viral and the public starts shipping the idea of the two of them as a couple, the other thing they don't realize is that they've been chatting with each other anonymously on the school app Jack designed. When Jack realizes he's been talking to Pepper the whole time, he isn't sure how to feel, especially when he learns she thinks she may have been chatting with someone else.Is all fair in love, food, and tweets? It turns out there's a lot more to the rivalry between Big League Burger and Girl Cheesing than meets the eye, and Jack and Pepper may get caught in the crossfire. And at the same time, as they try to figure out their feelings for one another, they also need to figure out what they want their futures to hold as opposed to everyone else deciding for them.Along the way there's lots of good-natured fun, romance, and lots of delicious-sounding food, so don't read Tweet Cute if you're hungry!! Emma Lord really did a great job with her debut novel, creating characters that you rooted for even when they annoyed you, and a totally believable scenario given how social media rules our lives!

    3.5 starsI liked the idea behind this one as corporate social media wars are definitely a relevant topic in today's times. I mean just look at the frenzy over Popeye's chicken sandwich after their back and forth quips with competitor Chic-fil-A. And while at times while reading this book, I struggled with some of the business aspects of the story, I did like the two main characters and thought they had good chemistry together. Overall it was, well, a cute read!Not too long ago Big League Burger 3.5 starsI liked the idea behind this one as corporate social media wars are definitely a relevant topic in today's times. I mean just look at the frenzy over Popeye's chicken sandwich after their back and forth quips with competitor Chic-fil-A. And while at times while reading this book, I struggled with some of the business aspects of the story, I did like the two main characters and thought they had good chemistry together. Overall it was, well, a cute read!Not too long ago Big League Burger was just a small hamburger restaurant in Nashville owned and run by Pepper's mom and dad. It seemingly found success overnight and quickly added new locations, and is now one of the top fast food franchises in the country. Even though Pepper is busy with school and swim team, she also helps run the social media accounts per the request of her mom. (but shh, it's a secret as the rest of the world doesn't need to know the online voice of Big League Burger is just a teenager)Jack feels like he lives in his twin brother's shadow but he still always tries to do the right thing by helping out at his parents' deli. He is livid when Big League Burger rips off the recipe for his family's grilled cheese sandwich with special sauce. This means war. Twitter war, to be specific, as he's going to use the deli's Twitter account to give Big League Burger a piece of his mind. Shenanigans ensue and Pepper and Jack are going to spend a lot of time trying to one up one another. But maybe there's also time for a little romance too!So it's probably going to sound like I have more complaints about this book than anything, but I really did like the story. The biggest problem for me was trying to just go with the story and not take it too seriously rather than question how realistic it was that a teenager was running a social media account for such a gigantic company. Jack's situation made more sense because it just was a mom and pop operation. In general I had a difficult time understanding Pepper's mom as it was hard to get her motivations at times. Many of the questions I had regarding her end up being answered by the end of the story, but in some ways it felt like it was too little too late. I liked how the story alternated between the perspectives of Pepper and Jack and thought they were pretty well-developed lead characters. It truly is mind boggling how much of a role social media plays in our lives now versus when I was a teenager and the internet was just becoming a mainstream thing. Overall, the author did a good job writing a modern, young adult romance. Thank you to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with an advance digital copy in exchange for an honest review!

And I loved how mature both characters were, and how well they handled the turns and twists that were thrown at them. I was surprised by how layered the plot was, and that it even covered a couple more serious topics, but still managed to stay funny and trendy. Also, the last plot twist explained so much, especially concerning Pepper’s mom and her obsessive focus with the company’s social media presence.But besides all that, Pepper and Jack’s relationship was really what carried the story for me. They were just adorable together and had this multi-layered relationship that added more substance to the overall story. I especially loved how mature they acted in crises situations, it was often the outside influences that handled things worse.The reason why I deducted 1.5 stars was that I felt the story could have been perfectly fine with 50 pages less, and that’s mostly because some of the backstory and inner monologues started to drag a little.But otherwise this book but especially the couple was adorable. A light hearted and entertaining novel.ARC generously provided in exchange for an honest review.

Tweet Cute tells the story of a Twitter war between Big League Burger, a massive corporate account, and Girl Cheesing, a small family-run deli in the East Village. But this is just the surface of this multi-layered story. The accounts are managed by Pepper and Jack, two teenagers who coincidentally happen to go to the same school. All is fair in a Twitter war, especially if it's good for business. What the two don't initially realize is that they are slowly falling for each other, not only thanks to the friendship that blossoms between the two, but also thanks to an app that Jack has created and that everyone at their school is using. This book screams cuteness. It has some very sweet moments and trust me when I say that you will not be able to stop yourself from drooling when they talk about the delicious creations that Pepper can bake. I so want to try some of that monster cake!Jack and Pepper definitely are some wonderful, realistic and very well-crafted character with lots of things going on in their lives. If you're looking for a cute and sweet romance YA book, you should definitely check this out!

    This was a cute and quick read. The pop culture references felt odd. I wasn’t sure if they were meant to be modern or nostalgic since they were too recent to be old yet too old to be modern if that makes sense? Anyway, it’s a nice contemporary romance read that was a good escape from all the fantasy I’ve read lately!

(i know it’s literally the cutest thing ever) 💖 Pepper is the all-around perfectionist who not only balances the demanding responsibilities of high school, but she also manages the social media of Big League Burger, a national fast-food chain and her family’s company. Jack is the class clown, secret genius, and wholesome underdog, and when he’s not hiding in the shadows of his popular twin brother, he’s working his family’s local deli.When suspicions arise that Big League Burger has stolen the local deli’s famous grilled cheese recipe, it’s time for war… ✨ Twitter war. ✨"I am really good at being snarky on Twitter. Even if these days “good at being snarky” generally means photoshopping an image of Big League Burger on the Krusty Krab and Burger King on the Chum Bucket."Enemies-to-lovers? ✅ Yummy food descriptions? ✅ Anonymous flirting over text message? ✅ Emma Lord manages to take all of the ~best tropes~ in the history of YA Fiction and expertly weaves them all together in a show-stopping retelling of You’ve Got Mail. There will never be a dull moment in the story, and the writing itself is extremely fun to read.All of the food descriptions made me incredibly hungry, and never in my life have I ever wanted a grilled cheese sandwich more. 🧀 Pepper and her sister also run a baking blog together so we get to see tons of amazing treats to brighten your mood. (i’m still on a mission to find the recipe for monster cake!!)I have SO MUCH LOVE for this book and all of its characters. Pepper and Jack’s chemistry is just *mwah* magnificent, and I loved watching them fall for each other slowly both online and offline. They manage to challenge and encourage each other as enemies turned friends, and it was just so!! darn!! cute!!! 😭❤️Even more, the book explores greater themes of family relationships, competitive culture in school, and exploring your passions despite other people’s expectations for you. “How can a person even know who they are if they don’t know what they want?”If you want to experience happiness through a book, you need to read this story now. 🍰😍 I promise you will not have a single regret (like 99.99% sure) because it just made my heart soar and eyes water from happiness. I am blown away by Emma Lord’s story-telling, and I can not wait for her next novel. If it’s anything like Tweet Cute, I know it’s going to become an instant favorite!______1/13/2019This book was SO WONDERFUL & AMAZING!!! I've stayed up late reading it for 3 nights in a row, and I have 0 regrets because I am such a fan of #PepperJack!! 10/10 would read again. 💖 Stay tuned for my full review as part of the official blog tour~ Thank you to Netgalley and the publisher for an ARC in exchange for an honest review!
