Food trucks are such beautiful things when you are hungry and just not in the mood to go into a restaurant. Perfect for a quick bite and definitely a good summer idea, food trucks are something that you can find in various romance books. Let’s talk about culinary romance books for your inner food truck lover!

For me, when it comes to a foodie romance, I love when they talk about the food they make or the food they work with. Sometimes in books they don’t get so into it, but when they do, it’s beautiful to my soul. Food trucks, to me, bring something cute to the table. I don’t know why, but whenever I see a book synopsis and they mention food trucks, my excitement for that novel increases so much.

But I’ll stop talking and instead start telling you all about these romance books that have characters who work at a food truck or own a food truck!
