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.

Note: I received an ARC of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This did not affect my opinions.
Review: There was so much about this book that I loved and reading from Pepper and Jack’s perspective was a lot of fun. The fact that Pepper and Jack were talking to each other on two different platforms without realizing that they were talking to each other was incredible. I thought it was clever the way that Emma made nods to Bustle and Buzzfeed with Boostle and Hub Seed. I loved how meme heavy this novel was, and honestly Tweet Cute was the most modern, modern-day romance.
My heart raced when Jack found out the Pepper was behind the Big League Burger Twitter account. I was so glad that they decided to turn it into a game. The friendship that formed between Pepper and Jack was so fun to watch. I couldn’t wait for them to figure out they’ve been anonymously talking to each other on the Weazel app that Jack made.
I really enjoyed the parents in Tweet Cute, even though they were a little not so great at times. I liked the backstory we got for them, although it was a little cliche-y. Admittedly, a lot of this story was a little bit of a cliche, and many parts were predictable, but none of that kept Tweet Cute from being great.
This was truly a fun and enjoyable read. It was the perfect amount of fluff and serious. I’m so glad this story had an epilogue; the ending was perfect with all the loose ends tied up.
And we talk about how their ship name is Pepperjack and their families own a grilled cheese business? Iconic.
