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.Amazon | Audible | BAM! | Barnes & Noble | IndieBound | Kobo
This has to be one of the most perfectly named books that I have come across in a long time because this book was really cute! As soon as I read the premise for this book, I knew that I would have to give it a try. It just sounded like such a good time. And it was! Once I started reading this book, I could not put it down and ended up finishing it in a single day. I really enjoyed the time I spent with this book.
Pepper hasn’t been in New York all that long. She moved there with her mom and older sister when their family’s burger chain started getting huge. She somehow finds the time for her schoolwork, activities, and still helps out with the company’s Twitter account. Jack has lived in New York all of his life. His family owns a neighborhood deli and Jack occasionally posts something on social media for the business.
When the big burger chain is rolling out a new grilled cheese that sounds a lot like the signature sandwich served at the small deli. It’s war or a Twitter war, at least. These two are going back and forth and they don’t even realize who is on the other end. Until they do. I loved this setup! It was just such a playful way of getting to see these characters get to know each other.
I loved Pepper and Jack! They both had some family issues to deal with and really had a lot in common. I thought that they were both very smart and resourceful teens. They really were perfect for each other. They had a lot of chemistry but I really felt like they understood each other in a way no one else seemed to.
I would recommend this book to others. I found this to be a light-hearted story filled with wonderful characters and a few laughs. I will be keeping an eye out for future books by this debut author!
I received a digital review copy of this book from St. Martin’s Press – Wednesday Books via NetGalley.

A Twitter war. I love the sound of that. I spend too much time on Twitter but to see social media in the books is always fun/
It sounds nice to have a good time!

This does sound like a cute book and a well picked title. The cover looks very cute as well. It sounds like a fun and unique way for the characters to get to know each other through the twitter war. I kinda like it when books include social media or modern things like that in an fun way in stories. I might have to check this one out as it sounds like a fun read and I like how you say the characters understand each other in a way no one seems to. Great review!
