What a delicious enemies to lovers romance! Omg the description of tacos in this book where can I find these tacos? I don’t think I will ever be happy until I can find these perfect tacos.

Julieta is the chef in a popular restaurant in her community. Her block has just gone up for sale and purchased by a chain restaurant group. Unfortunately for her it is the same guy she met on the Day of the Dead and clicked with and his father who stole her mothers taco recipe years ago and made millions.

I loved the slow burn especially how steamy everything was in their thoughts as they were trying to stay professional. It got really steamy as they got closer. But the raising of rent and forcing all the businesses out that made the community what it was, forced them apart.

I think updating and giving face lifts and doing some landscaping is ok but doing renos that make housing crazy expensive and then raising business rents to put in chain stores is horrible. I would love to go to all of these shops in Barrio Logan.

Loved this was set in San Diego!

Also side note: my Dad used to call my BIL an Aztec God that brought back memories. He had such a man crush on him.

鉂 What meat do you eat with your tacos? If you don’t eat tacos, why you monster? Then what do you eat? This book was themed around these amazing fish tacos.

Synopsis:

When fate and tacos bring Ram贸n and Julieta together on the Day of the Dead, the star-crossed pair must make a choice: accept the bitter food rivalry that drives them apart or surrender to a love that consumes them.

Ram贸n Montez always achieves his goals. Whether that means collecting Ivy League degrees or growing his father’s fast-food empire, nothing sets Ram贸n off course. So when the sexy se帽orita who kissed him on the Day of the Dead runs off into the night with his heart, he determines to do whatever it takes to find her again.

Celebrity chef Julieta Campos has sacrificed everything to save her sea-to-table taqueria from closing. To her horror, she discovers that her new landlord is none other than the magnetic mariachi she hooked up with on Dia de los Muertos. Even worse, it was his father who stole her mother’s taco recipe decades ago. Julieta has no choice but to work with Ram贸n, the man who destroyed her life’s work–and the one man who tempts and inspires her.

As San Diego’s outraged community protests against the Taco King take-over and the divide between their families grows, Ram贸n and Julieta struggle to balance the rising tensions. But Ram贸n knows that true love is priceless and despite all of his successes, this is the one battle he refuses to lose.
