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.

A Twitter war kicks off when this big chain restaurant, Big Burger League, decides to rip off a recipe from a small deli, Girl Cheesing.  I was so happy to have gotten so much tweets in this war. I wouldn't have minded more because they definitely had me laughing and entertained.

I’ve got a Twitter war to win.

Pepper and Jack are basically the ones to handle the Twitter accounts for each company. All the burn happens on Twitter between these two. They don't even know they go to the same school and could possibly even be talking to each other through an anonymous app!

I loved Pepper's determination and just the type of young woman she is. She studies so hard and really tries her best to succeed. To others, especially to Jack, she seems like she's untouchable and she probably looks down at others, which is so far from the truth! When Jack finally talks to her thanks to a mess-up with the swim team and diving team schedule, he realized just how amazing she really is.

Twitter, I can deal with. Pepper, on the other hand, has a way of sneaking up on me I’m not so sure about.

Jack was a perfect addition to this story. He was just the type of friend that Pepper needed. I loved how smart he is! He's even developing an app, which is where students can go in anonymously and talk to each other without putting up the persona they are at school.

In this app is where Pepper and Jack start getting to know each other, without knowing who's the other person. The bond and connection that they had through the app was beautiful to see. When these two finally date, it's so easy to see things transition smoothly from enemies-to-friends-to-lovers.

Also, Jack even develops other apps, just to mess around, which one of them has to be my fave! I need it in real life! Give me all the Mac-N-cheese! (Read it so you know what I'm talking about.)

Something that truly stood out to me where how the characters never really changed into something else. I mean, Pepper and Jack had the Twitter war fame going for them, yet they didn't let it change who they were or let it get to their heads. On the contrary, they stayed so down to earth and genuine!

Overall, Tweet Cute is a charming debut novel that will entertain you to the very end. I cannot wait for more from Emma Lord!
