Booklist Review: "Ernesto Nesto Vasquez has given himself six months to make his Afro-Caribbean food truck the success he knows it can be. Step one is moving his business out of New York City to Ithaca, where there is an untapped market for the Caribbean culinary delights he can deliver. Step two is ignoring any distractions that might come up along the way. Distractions like sexy librarian Jude Fuller, who just happens to be one of Nesto's first customers. Jude, who has his own hands full pursuing approval for a new grant, is more than willing to take a pass on dating anyone, including the too-delicious-for-words Nesto. But how much longer can Jude convince himself that visiting Nesto's truck is just about the food? Herrera not only dishes up plenty of muy caliente same-sex love scenes in her impressive, not-to-be-missed debut, which beautifully celebrates the rich diversity of life in the U.S., but she also excels at creating the kind of rich emotional connections between her protagonists that romance readers will find irresistible.--John Charles Copyright 2019 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Herrera's entertaining first Dreamers romance is fueled by love, community, and plenty of Afro-Caribbean food. Ernesto Vasquez has one dream: to sell Afro-Caribbean cuisine out of his food truck. After struggling to turn a profit in his hometown of New York City, Nesto follows his mother's advice to move his business upstate to Ithaca, where there's less competition. There he finds instant success and an instant crush in the form of blond, Spanish-speaking librarian Jude Fuller. After a slow start, Nesto and Jude embark on an adorable, delicious foray into hapless romance. The story is full of memorable, outlandish characters who leap off the page, including Nesto's "queer brown" best friends from the Bronx, who inspire and champion him along the way; his loving, no-nonsense Dominican mamA-; and Jude's meddling foodie of a best friend. The food descriptions are mouthwatering and the relationships ring with authenticity, but the flat, cartoonish antagonist robs the otherwise realistic romance of some of its hard-won satisfaction. Nonetheless, it's sure to excite fans of contemporary foodie romances. Agent: Linda Camacho, Gallt & Zacker. (Mar.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
