Fiction. Romance. Humor (Fiction.) LGBTQIA+ (Fiction.) HTML:The first openly nonbinary contestant on America??s favorite cooking show falls for their clumsy competitor in this delicious romantic comedy debut that USA Today hailed as ??an essential read.?
Recently divorced and on the verge of bankruptcy, Dahlia Woodson is ready to reinvent herself on the popular reality competition show Chef??s Special. Too bad the first memorable move she makes is falling flat on her face, sending fish tacos flying??not quite the fresh start she was hoping for. Still, she's focused on winning, until she meets someone she might want a future with more than she needs the prize money. 
After announcing their pronouns on national television, London Parker has enough on their mind without worrying about the klutzy competitor stationed in front of them. They??re there to prove the trolls??including a fellow contestant and their dad??wrong, and falling in love was never part of the plan.
As London and Dahlia get closer, reality starts to fall away. Goodbye, guilt about divorce, anxiety about uncertain futures, and stress from transphobia. Hello, hilarious shenanigans on set, wedding crashing, and spontaneous dips into the Pacific. But as the finale draws near, Dahlia and London??s steamy relationship starts to feel the heat both in and outside the kitchen??and they must figure out if they have the right ingredi

2.75 stars. i usually have a real problem with these stories where the characters fall in love so quickly, and it did happen pretty quickly here, but it felt like it made sense, mostly. the conflict felt reasonable. it was a little too quick to move across the country for someone (although it really really helped that she had no real reason to stay where she was), there wasn't enough of the on-set tension of the cooking show, and i could have used some more depth in the side characters, but this was actually a pretty fun read with two mains that i wanted to see get together.

great nonbinary rep, including a great explanation of why that might be someone's identity. ("And it was a hard thing to explain, that they didn't want to be a man, but they never felt quite right as a girl. That they only started to feel really okay when they understood they could be their own thing. That they could exist in a space that was all their own. That they could shift and adjust until it felt right. They had settled on nonbinary feeling right for them, even though they knew others like them had their own names that felt right to their own experiences. And that was comforting too, that each person could choose what brought them closest to belonging. The power in that - knowing that one day, people might discover even better words for it. That there was only ever freedom in continuing to find new names for who we were, who we could be.")

i'd definitely read them again. ( )

In order to become a contestant on Chef's Special, a popular reality cooking show, Dahlia has quit her job and basically put her entire life on pause, pinning all her hopes on that $100,000 prize. At an cooking station adjacent to hers is London, a nonbinary fellow contestant, who spends the first few cooking tasks hopelessly distracted by Dahlia's hair. Both prove to be excellent cooks, but as they get to know each other more closely the studio kitchen isn't the only thing that starts to heat up (ha!).

As part of annual summer reading shenanigans, I and each of my library colleagues vowed to read a romance novel based on selected attributes, and then report back at a book discussion. My selections were "forced proximity" and "chef/foodie," and this title popped up. To my delight, it sounded like something I might have chosen to read anyway. I found that I cared about the protagonists, though the supporting cast was disappointingly somewhat one-dimensional. It's a sweet and well-written — I might even suggest 'wholesome' (though also spicy!) — romance. The inevitable, obligatory conflict was believable, and forgivable. Recommended! ( )

How crazy is it that I've never read a book featuring a nonbinary main character? This was a delightful first, a very cute romance. I really enjoyed the behind the scenes of a cooking reality show! ( )

Plenty of lovely warmth and humor-humor was spot-on, in fact. Sexy and sweet, but the pacing gave me problems. ( )

Boring. The Characters were barely explored, the cooking competition aspect was barely explored, the romance was just another bland instalove story with no real depth. However, it was a quick read, even if it was wholly forgetable. ( )

"It’s a familiar setup, but a nonbinary protagonist in a mainstream romance is cause for excitement and the characters spark with chemistry."
