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.

My Thoughts:

Tweet Cute was a delightful and charming read! If you are looking for a light-hearted, feel-good romance, look no further.  Pepper and Jack had me smiling and giggling, like I was back in high school. 

Pepper misses small town living and the family deli, where she grew up in Nashville. As the family business, Big League Burger grew, her parents grew apart and divorced. Now living in New York alone with her mom, Pepper demands perfection from herself.  She gets straight A's, is in all A.P. classes, and is captain of her private school swim team.  However, Pepper is lonely.  She misses her older sister Paige, who is estranged from her mother, her dad who still lives in Nashville, and the life she use to have.  Living in the big city is vastly different from the comforts of small town living, everyone knowing each other, and the ease of built in friendships.

Jack works hard in his family's deli, Girl Cheesing.  He is tired of living in the shadow of his identical twin Ethan, who is very popular, successful in school, and expected to leave high school and do big things; while it is expected that
Jack will run the family business one day.  Jack is resentful and has secret ambitions of developing apps.  He anonymously develops Weazel an app where the teens from his school are paired up with another person, but identities are kept secret.

When Big League Burger steals Grandma Belly's grilled cheese sandwich recipe and posts it on twitter, Jack is outraged.  He tweets a comment that ends up sparking a twitter war between him and Pepper.  Pepper is pressured by her mother to post tweets on the corporate page, because she has quick and witty comebacks, while Jack, and at times Ethan, post tweets on their family business' page.

As secret pen pals on Weazel, and anonymous comments on twitter pile up, these two interact with one another all day long, and don't even know it!  However, in real life Pepper and Jack start getting closer due to participating in swim captain duties for their high school.

I loved all of the interaction between Jack and pepper.  It was fun, sarcastic and witty at times, sweet at times, and all around such a great time.  I love #pepperjack!  These two connected with one another on such a deep level, and filled emotional needs in one another.  They became best friends, each other's biggest support, and I was rooting for them to figure everything out and be together!

If your looking for a super sweet, cute, fun, feel-good story, pick up Tweet Cute!  It was such a delightful treat!!!

  2. So glad to hear you approve of a Tweet Cute Lindy! I should have requested this... now I’ll have to snag a copy and check it out. It sounds like these two had a bunch to work out but I’m sure it was totally worth it. I’m not sure how they could resolve the recipe theft but now I’m interested in finding out.

  3. Yeah! I am so excited to see this was a hit for you. This one charmed the pants off of me. Between the whip smart banter, fantastic characters, and adorable romance, I was all in.

  4. I've seen good things about this romance and comparisons to You've Got Mail, and I loved that movie. Happy to see you loved it! I'd like to give this a shot sometime. :)
