This summer, Reese Camden is trading sweet tea and Southern hospitality for cold brew and crisp coastal air. She’s landed her dream marketing internship at Friends of Flavor, a wildly popular cooking channel in Seattle. The only problem? Benny Beneventi, the relentlessly charming, backwards-baseball-cap-wearing culinary intern–and her main competition for the fall job.

Reese’s plan to keep work a No Feelings Zone crumbles like a day-old muffin when she and Benny are thrown together for a video shoot that goes viral, making them the internet’s newest ship. Audiences are hungry for more, and their bosses at Friends of Flavor are happy to deliver. Soon Reese and Benny are in an all-out food war, churning homemade ice cream, twisting soft pretzels, breaking eggs in an omelet showdown–while hundreds of thousands of viewers watch.

Reese can’t deny the chemistry between her and Benny. But the more their rivalry heats up, the harder it is to keep love on the back burner…

My review:

This was a sweet young adult/ new adult rom com that will be perfect for when summer rolls around.

I loved reading this. The banter between the two characters was great. I loved the fact that Benny realized he liked Reese early on. Kind of a spoiler, but cover and plot gives the fact that this is a romance away.

I liked the fact that he was honest and just tried to win her affections over.

The book wasn’t really enemies to lovers. The enemies part was only a bit one sided with the competition for the internship.

Some things I didn’t like was how obsessed Reese got with the online comments and such. It seemed like she focused a little bit too much on that aspect but I could still relate to her on why she had misgivings about that.

I also wasn’t a fan of the miscommunication part.

Overall, I did enjoy this book and I thought it was a sweet, adorable romance. I definitely recommend it for those that want something fun and light hearted. It was a four star rating.

Thank you Netgalley and publishers for allowing me the chance to read and review this book.
