Two restaurant critics learn their opposing tastes might make for a five-star relationship in the next foodie romantic comedy from the author of Sadie on a Plate.

By day, Julie Zimmerman works as an executive assistant. After hours, she’s @JulieZeeEatsNYC, a social media restaurant reviewer with over fifty thousand followers. As much as she loves her self-employed side gig, what Julie really wants is to be a critic at a major newspaper, like the New York Scroll. The only thing worse than the Scroll’s rejection of her application is the fact that smarmy, social-media-averse society boy Bennett Richard Macalester Wright snagged her dream job.

While at the Central Park Food Festival, Julie confronts the annoyingly handsome Bennett about his outdated opinions on social media and posts the resulting video footage. Julie’s follower count soars—and so does the Scroll’s. Julie and Bennett grudgingly agree to partner up for a few reviews to further their buzz. Online buzz, obviously.

Over tapas, burgers, and more, Julie and Bennett connect over their shared love of food. But when the competitive fire between them turns extra spicy, they’ll have to decide how much heat their relationship can take.

After reading Amanda Elliot’s delicious romance debut, SADIE ON A PLATE last year, I was tickled to win an eARC of her upcoming release with Berkley Romance BEST SERVED HOT that comes out 2/21 thanks to Shelf Awareness + NetGalley!

I am not a foodie, instead, I have a palette of a five-year-old but books like Elliot’s make me want to go out and try ALL THE FOODS. I love how her books are centered around incredible food + eating, but both titles manage to be so incredibly unique.

This book focuses on Julie, a foodie influencer trying to claim her space in a world that she thinks may not respect her as someone who knows her stuff when it comes to food. While her job provides her the luxury of being able to do @JulieZeeEatsNYC she struggles with being seen seriously even though she’s grown her following + community from scratch.

When she doesn’t get the food critic job she wants, and it instead goes to Bennett, a privileged white male just like her boss it creates the dreamy set-up for an enemies-to-lovers romance when a viral instagram LIVE results in a collaboration for reviewing together.

Full of banter and hilarious escapades, take a seat, grab a snack and enjoy BEST SERVED HOT, it was a treat to read!
