Contemporary romance/ to review

What is better than a pair of meddling grandpas! Those two are up to no good!

Kamilah wants things, but she is sort of stuck. But she really wants to change her family's restaurant, but yes she is stuck. I liked her, she was so sweet and she loved loved cooking. I could practically taste it.

Liam owns a whisky distillery with his grandfather. He has not had a girlfriend in ages, and has a lot of trauma from his childhood that he really should see someone about.

Then the grandfathers say they must get married and all the want will be theirs. Yes, fake relationships are so much fun. And since they used to be best friends it is obvious that they will fall hard for each other.

But Liam has his trauma, and Kamilah has her fear of doing things.

A fun ride. I think this would be a funny movie btw.

Good narrator that knew what she was doing. Good voices, good flow, and easy to follow along to.

Kamilah Vega is desperate to convince her family to update their Puerto Rican restaurant and enter it into the Fall Foodie Tour. With the gentrification of their Chicago neighborhood, it's the only way to save the place. The fly in her mofongo--her blackmailing abuelo says if she wants to change anything in his restaurant, she'll have to marry the one man she can't stand: his best friend's grandson.

Liam Kane spent a decade working to turn his family's distillery into a contender. Now he and his grandfather are on the verge of winning a national competition. Then Granda hits him with a one-two punch: he has cancer and he has his heart set on seeing Liam married before it's too late. And Granda knows just the girl...Kamilah Vega.

If they refuse, their grandfathers will sell the building that houses both their businesses. With their futures on the line, Kamilah and Liam plan to outfox the devious duo, faking an engagement until they both get what they want. But soon, they find themselves tangled up in more than either of them bargained for.


  1. I do like a fun, fake relationship.

  2. Fake romances are a fun trope. It does sound like it'd make a good romcom movie.

  3. Sounds really a good fun read, love the set up.

  4. Fun books like these are pretty common, but I don't think I've seen one with a premise featuring meddling grandpas before!

  5. Got to love meddling grandfolk!

  6. OMG! This is everything I love in a story! I need this one! thanks!!
