Day 89 – American Dreamer by Adriana Herrera
Herrera splashed onto the romance scene with this debut, a bright, bold, multi-cultural M/M love story.
It also featured mouth-watering descriptions of Dominican truck food; his love interest, a librarian (yay!); a short-sighted, small-minded bigot who tries to stand in his way at every turn, creating conflict for the plot, but also reminding people of privilege to check our biases; and a supporting cast of people from all walks of life and around the globe who bring a strong story to even brighter life.
A great read, on every level. I hope you’ll give it a try.
( I also enjoyed Book 2, American Fairy Tale, and am eagerly anticipating Book 3, American Love Story, which looks equally fabulous. Links below.)
No one ever said big dreams come easy
For Nesto Vasquez, moving his Afro-Caribbean food truck from New York City to the wilds of Upstate New York is a huge gamble. If it works? He’ll be a big fish in a little pond. If it doesn’t? He’ll have to give up the hustle and return to the day job he hates. He’s got six months to make it happen—the last thing he needs is a distraction.
Jude Fuller is proud of the life he’s built on the banks of Cayuga Lake. He has a job he loves and good friends. It’s safe. It’s quiet. And it’s damn lonely. Until he tries Ithaca’s most-talked-about new lunch spot and works up the courage to flirt with the handsome owner. Soon he can’t get enough—of Nesto’s food or of Nesto. For the first time in his life, Jude can finally taste the kind of happiness that’s always been just out of reach.
An opportunity too good to pass up could mean a way to stay together and an incredible future for them both…if Nesto can remember happiness isn’t always measured by business success. And if Jude can overcome his past and trust his man will never let him down.
