Tweet Cute by Emma Lord
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
My heart just exploded over the cheesiest (grilled-cheesiest, that is) romance I have ever read!!!
Love, love, love this with my whole body and soul!
When fast food behemoth, Big League Burger, announces a new line of grilled cheese sandwiches, no one is more surprised than twins, Jack and Ethan Campbell.
Their surprise comes from the fact that one of the specialty sandwiches has the exact same ingredients, and name, as a grill cheese they know very well.
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 and 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.
If this book is any indication, she is poised to have one heck of a career. I cannot wait to see what sort of story she comes up with next!
Tweet Cute releases on Tuesday, January 21st and will be available at your favorite book sellers and via online retailers. Be sure to pick up your copy. You don’t want to miss out on this adorable story!
