The Romance Recipe by Ruby Barrett


not my first pride book of pride month being a dud.....

let's start with the good:
- I actually really liked the writing for the most part. it was clean, funny, and (mostly) polished
- oh you thought there was going to be more?

the bad: 
- were there actually two characters here? because they certainly felt the same! they had the same personality, the same goals, the same way of speaking, the same way of thinking, and I literally never knew who I was reading from.

my personal preference violated:
- they both had pre-established crushes on each other before the book even started. where was the tension? why am I supposed to care at this point?
- they started hooking up less than 100 pages into the story. again, where is the tension?
