All’s fair in love, war, and breakfast waffles in this sizzling standalone romantic comedy from USA Today bestselling author, Lila Monroe!

Zoey Rafferty dreams of becoming the food truck queen of San Francisco.

She’s building an empire whipping up delicious brunch treats – until the (annoyingly handsome) Breakfast Bandit starts stealing all her customers with his devious tactics and smoldering charm.

Cam Newsom never backs down from a fight. As far as he’s concerned, let the best chef win. And so what if Zoey looks sexy as hell when she’s all riled up? He wants a woman he can connect with – not have whipped cream spray fights in the middle of the street. A woman like his mysterious online pen-pal, WaffleGirl, who shares his ambition, and burns up his screen with her flirty quips.

My Review

Lila Monroe brings together the San Fransisco food truck community and the reality television craze in her latest story, You’ve Got Male, book 2 in her Chick Flick Club series. And in true Lila Monroe romantic comedy fashion, Zoey Rafferty and Cam Newsome know exactly how to get underneath each other’s skin as business adversaries but also how to heat one another up with flirtatious exchanges, sultry looks, and even some too close for comfort encounters that make readers question whether Zoey and Cam can keep their professional and personal lives separate when the rivalry gets even hotter and their exchanges lead to some interesting discoveries.

Zoey and Cam’s antics prove just how competitive the food truck industry is and illustrate why neither of them can play things safe…can allow another food truck to outdo them…can be afraid to do whatever it takes to get ahead and for all of these reasons, these two will either wind up going for broke alone or perhaps work together in order to remain doing what they love and being successful doing it.

Boy do Zoey and Cam push each other’s buttons, and while Cam seems to be more educated on the finer points of sabotage and nefarious acts, Zoey’s passion for cooking and her desire to succeed makes her a quick study, and soon, she’s giving as good as she gets but she’s also realizing that her growing feelings for Cam aren’t just ones of detestation or annoyance.

The idea that all is fair in love and war is fitting for what Zoey and Cam do to each other in You’ve Got Male, and it’s clear that this enemies-to-lovers’ storyline utilizes the main characters’ banter, chemistry, and passion for food to make a connection that’s a lot deeper than either of them knows, which means that as their relationship changes and grows, decisions need to be made before they’re both out of a job and a potential love interest.

I can’t help but smile and reminisce about some of my favorite romantic comedies when I enter Lila Monroe’s Chick Flick Club series; the way she puts her own spin on well-known movies and brings the swoon, the laughter, and the steam that these films are known for into her comedically crafted world allows readers to lose themselves in Monroe’s stories just like they do in the movies.
