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.

Thank you to NetGalley and Wednesday Books for giving me a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
Big League Burger owns by Pepper’s family, her mother moved to NYC with Pepper and Paige’s. Pepper is the one who has to help in social media stuff. Even spending 4 years in NY and the new school, she doesn’t feel like home, don’t have friends. Only her sister is her friend who is away for college, but they are connected through their baking blog.
Jack’s family runs a small deli, Jack is more involved in it rather than his twin Ethan. Jack is always overshadowed by his STAR brother, though they are identical twins. He made an app, where people talk to each other anonymously.
The fun started when Jack’s small deli claims that BLB stole their family recipe of Grilled cheese, which started the twitter war between both, Jacka and Pepper both are unaware of their identities on Twitter, as well as on the app where both are talking for months, with all this happening they are also becoming friends IRL.
I loved the writing, story, characters, cheesiness and everything. Anyone can see the author is a fan of Rom-coms, references of mean girls, Gossip Girl and others were scattered throughout the story which I loved, I also get the mild vibes of Gossip Girl in the story. Twitter war scenario was so fun and on the point.
All the characters were so fun except Ethan, I didn’t like him. The family role was equally fun. I loved the way the author define Pepper’s homesickness and Jack’s insecurities that were Perfect. Unlike other YA, both weren’t hot-tempered, stupid and annoying, which I loved the most.
Did I mention that not read this book, If you are hungry…I am a sucker of bakery goods and this book literally left me drooling.
If you are looking for super cute, light, cheesy and fluffy read…Go ahead read it 🙂
