It’s Kind Of A Cheesy Love Story by Lauren Morrill | Book Review

I brake for books like It’s Kind Of A Cheesy Love Story by Lauren Morrill. It is everything I wanted in a book and more. There is pizza and wonderfully written parents and class and obviously romance. This was the perfect book to pick up for a pick me up. Honestly, I was just so happy by the end of this book and thrilled with the outcome and developments within.

It’s Kind Of A Cheesy Love Story opens up with Beck’s birthday celebration. Every year she celebrates her birthday at the Hot N Crusty pizzeria. There is usually a photo taken for the newspaper. You see, Beck Brix was born in the bathroom of the Hot N Crusty. The owner who is just fantastic, Del, gives Beck free pizza for life as well as the guarantee of a job when she turns 16. Only, Beck doesn’t care for her local fame. She doesn’t love being known as the Pizza Princess and Bathroom Baby. She doesn’t even like pizza all that much. So, as we open the book, Beck is turning 16.

She would rather work anywhere else over the summer, or actually not even have to work like her friend group – essentially the popular rich kids. Alas, Beck needs to work. She was not born with a silver spoon in her mouth. Everything, however, seems to be coming together for Beck. Her crush Mac seems to finally be noticing her. Working at the Hot N Crusty will put a dent in her plans to get with Mac. She’s dreading her upcoming job. But, it turns out, it isn’t as bad as she thought it would be. Beck is getting paid a few dollars above minimum wage. She also really like her coworkers. And well, something just might eventually develop between her and a certain delivery boy.

Like I said, I just LOVED It’s Kind Of A Cheesy Love Story. I’ve read all of Morrill’s books and this is my favorite so far. It gave me real Emma Mills vibes which is such a high compliment. I loved that Beck wasn’t super sure about her future and which college to go to and what to major in. She also is having insecurity regarding her friend group and feels like the odd woman out because she’s not in dance and she’s not wealthy.

I love that Beck grows so much as a character. OH and her parents when they do pop up are wonderful. AND DEL the owner of the Hot N Crusty, he won me over too. And okay, I am not going to spoil the romance for you, but the trope is one of my favorites and I am so over the moon in love with how everything played out in this wonderful book.
