Hello! Here is the review for Tacos for Two. I guess I would call this one a twinky sort of book. Not necessarily nutritious, but quite entertaining.
Ok so I liked Jude right off, even if the first chapter made me a little mad. I don’t like his family at all. Which I guess was kinda the point. I guess I think he’s a bit cliche. The ideal rich and well built muscle. Oreo obsessed. He was ok. I think it was sweet the way he treated Rory.
Rory herself was a complex mix. She was cliche too. Which I expected from the beginning of this book so that wasn’t a surprise. None of her motives or personality traits were very original either, so she was your basic female Hallmark movie character.
I liked Grady and Alton. Grady was all bossy and sass and old man vibes. And Alton was your cliche college kids looking for a job. When they got Cody and Alton and Jude into one room I had a blast.
THAT being said, please read through the next section.
Ok… the plot was VERY cliche. They start talking over a dating app. Don’t know who each other is. Connect and feel understood over the app, and absolute rivals in real life.
I really did like their backgrounds tho. The way that Rory was fighting to keep Salsa Street afloat, and Jude trying to earn his freedom. It was interesting.
The BANTER. The way they talked. The things they said. The way it was written. I had such a blast reading this thing. I was constantly laughing. The texting situation and misunderstandings kinda hit home as I have some really good friendships over the internet and I felt that. I think reading their texting conversations was half the fun of the book. I really had so much fun.
I guess that is to say, plot wise, there wasn’t too much shocking or world changing, but I had a hoot and holler of a time reading their interactions, even if some of them were cringe.
Ok so at this point I’m not actually done with the book, but so far there has not been a lot of content that needs to be brought up. I suppose there will be more towards the end of the book and I’ll come back and adjust this if there’s something I think needs to be mentioned.
My friend. If you are looking for a laughable Hallmark-style taco truck romance this should be your go to. I am totally keeping this book to read for future fuzzy-blanket cup-of-tea days.
I recommend this book (before finishing) for ages 16 and up!
I think that my favorite quote for this book is almost EVERY single one of their text bubble conversations. I’m going to let you get a copy into your library or on your bookshelf and read it yourself. XD
Thank you to the author and Revell for a free copy of this book! A positive review was not required, and all opinions are my own.
