Waiting on Wednesday ~ A Taste for Love by Jennifer Yen


Happy humpday, happy Wednesday! Welcome to a brand-new Waiting on Wednesday~ This week? A Taste for Love by Jennifer Yen!

A book with Asian culture, romance, and baking! I am so hyped for this one, I love books like this. I cannot wait to see the bake-off/the baking competition, I want to see how the show is done, what kind of things they are going to bake, and of course how the romance develops. And willl Liza’s mom see that she needs to let her girl go and have her own love instead of one hand-picked?

The cover is also adorable! Now I just go to wait until April! ARGH!

A Taste for Love, Jennifer Yen, Asian Culture, Baking, Young Adult, Man, Woman, Flirting, To her friends, high school senior Liza Yang is nearly perfect. Smart, kind, and pretty, she dreams big and never shies away from a challenge. But to her mom, Liza is anything but. Compared to her older sister Jeannie, Liza is stubborn, rebellious, and worst of all, determined to push back against all of Mrs. Yang’s traditional values, especially when it comes to dating.

The one thing mother and daughter do agree on is their love of baking. Mrs. Yang is the owner of Houston’s popular Yin & Yang Bakery. With college just around the corner, Liza agrees to help out at the bakery’s annual junior competition to prove to her mom that she’s more than her rebellious tendencies once and for all. But when Liza arrives on the first day of the bake-off, she realizes there’s a catch- all of the contestants are young Asian American men her mother has handpicked for Liza to date.

The bachelorette situation Liza has found herself in is made even worse when she happens to be grudgingly attracted to one of the contestants; the stoic, impenetrable, annoyingly hot James Wong. As she battles against her feelings for James, and for her mother’s approval, Liza begins to realize there’s no tried and true recipe for love.
