Image of More to Love (A Perfect Fit)

Despite playing with a fun trope, the novel has some clunky writing and underdeveloped leads. The narrative tends to tell, not show, the characters' states of minds and struggles. The heroine lacks an emotional journey and the hero's struggles become a distraction rather than an obstacle. With an interesting chef lead, the book could also use some mouth-watering descriptions of food.

Jessa Gibson is ready to put down roots, and her food truck taking off is the first step in her plan. The health inspector who won't leave her alone, however, is a different story. His increasingly strange citations and his culinary pickiness are no distraction from his attractiveness. Max Hager never intended for his ruse as the health inspector to last this long — he was just trying to help a friend. As things between the chef and her man heat up, can Max come clean without ruining the best thing that's ever happened to him? (FOREVER, Feb., 368 pp., $7.99)
