Book Blurb

If they could stop arguing for a hot second . . . they might just fall in love.

Gabriel Moretti and Sean Cooper should be friends. They’re both passionate about serving delicious food to their customers. They both love to kick back with the other food truck owners at the collective they’ve joined. But maybe it’s possible to have too much in common . . .


Especially when they’ve chosen the exact same name for their food trucks.


Gabriel and Sean know that one of them will have to change the name. The only question is, who’s willing to give in first?


It’s inevitable that with such a difficult decision, their tempers flare. But to their shock, their deeply-buried chemistry ignites too. Could it be that for them fighting is actually flirting, and what they really crave is each other?


Book Review

“When good times turn out way bigger than you first expected, that's when you know you're on a roll!” ~ Stephen Richards


Gabe’s, of ‘On A Roll’ by Beth Bolden, food truck On A Roll is a great success. As he admires his new logo, Tony, the manager of the food truck lot, comes by to tell him how good the truck looks. At the same time, he lets Gabe know that there is a new truck on the lot with the same name.


Gabe can’t believe what he is seeing. He spent months of research to make sure no one else had that name. Yet, there it is, his logo on another truck! Gabe goes over to confront the newcomer and demand that he change it. He intends to be as diplomatic as possible but when he brings up changing the name, Sean, the new truck owner, tells him no. To say the least, this gets them off on the wrong foot.


Even after two years, Gabe and Sean still disagree on everything, including who is going to change the name of their truck. Since they serve entirely different foods, it was okay at first, but as time goes by, things get confusing. Tony, the lot manager, puts his foot down; he insists that they get together and work it out because it is hurting business. He gives them an ultimatum. One of them has to change their logo or someone will have to leave the lot. Begrudgingly, Gabe and Sean decide that they need to take Tony’s request seriously. Since both men have an emotional attachment to their truck’s name that neither is aware of, their refusal to give in appears to be pure stubbornness.


Tony’s final warning forces Gabe and Seth to put their differences aside and focus on agreeing. They are sitting in the Funky Cup when Gabe decides that negotiations may go more smoothly if Seth has a drink or two. Drinking leads to flirting which leads to kissing. It may be a terrible idea, but Seth and Gabe can no longer deny the sexual tension between them. The thing is, if they have sex, can they keep the feelings that are bound to occur separate from the issue of who will change their truck’s name?


So far, Gabe and Sean are my favorite couple in the ‘Food Truck Warriors’ series. It is an understatement to say that their relationship was complicated. Before they could deal with their feelings for each other, they had to come to terms with their own issues. Thanks, Beth, for helping them work it out. I’m looking forward to the next book in the series.
