Rory Perez, a food truck owner who can’t cook, is struggling to keep the business she inherited from her aunt out of the red–and an upcoming contest all through Modest’s annual food truck festival seems one of the simplest ways to do it. The prize money could after all give her a solid financial footing and keep her cousin with special needs paid up at her beloved assisted living home. Then maybe Rory will have enough time to meet the man she’s been talking to via an anonymous online dating site.
Jude Strong is tired of being a puppet at his manipulative father’s law firm, and the food truck festival seems like the easiest opportunity to dive into his passion for cooking and after all call his life his own. But if he loses the contest, he’s back at the law firm for good. Failure isn’t an option.
Complications arise when Rory’s chef gets mono and she realizes she has to cook finally. Then Jude discovers that his stiffest competition is identical woman he’s been falling for online the past month.
Will these unlikely chefs sacrifice it all for the sake of love? Or will there only ever be tacos for one?
