Tweet Cute

by Emma Lord

eARC, 336 pages

Expected publication: January 21st 2020 by Wednesday Books


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.


I received an eARC of this book through Edelweiss Plus in exchange for an honest review.

Tweet Cute is one of those unexpected gems that I find through book blogging. I rarely read contemporary so that even if the blurb sounds super cute and the “secretly texting each other” premise reminds me of Alex, Approximately (which, btw, is one of my favorite contemporary ever!), I probably won’t pick it up immediately. But then reviews started to pour in, all of them loving this book so much that I got excited and read it immediately!

And fortunately, Tweet Cute really lives up to the premise and positive reviews. From the start, we are already giveth with cute banter between our main characters, Jack and Pepper. They were not the best of friends so their interaction is limited with jabs and competition but they’re still really fun to watch, especially since they’re on an equal ground.

As the story progresses though, we got to know the characters even more and their relationship also develops. I especially love their characters interaction, it’s really small but got me really happy everytime I read them. The light touch and smile, the accidental eye contact and touch. And of course, the inside jokes between them! The twitter war may be a huge plot point, but we spend more time in the real life developing the romance, which is actually very fluffy and cute. I love reading about them!

Furthermore, the characters also undergo tremendous growth throughout the story. Both Jack and Pepper have passion for food, both are barely able to keep up with academic pressure, and both are unsure of whether they will continue the family business. They are able to communicate their want, as well as think deeper about the academic system and their family legacy. Especially for Pepper, the baggage she carries from her move are discussed and she opens herself for more opportunities! I’m sad that the conflict between Ethan and Jack were never actually resolved between them, but I love how the friendship between Pepper and Pooja develops!

Overall, I think Tweet Cute is a really fun and cute story that resonates deeply. We’ve all been there, crumbling underneath the academic pressure and competition that comes with it, and feel disconnected and couldn’t talk with anyone in your family. With cute romance and friendship, amazing character development and fun banters, this book is a perfect read to start your 2020! 💕
