Side Quest

(The second book in the Trending For You series)
A novel by


Ever since I was a kid, I’ve dreamed of being a chef. After graduating at the top of my class in culinary school and successfully running a restaurant, my professional life is amazing. Personally, I��m more than a little lonely, but you can’t have everything. Things are going just fine … until the owner of the restaurant fires me. To make matters worse, he’s sabotaging my job applications, preventing me from finding employment anywhere in Toronto.

Fine then. I’ll take matters into my own hands and apply for the head chef position for an e-sports team … whatever the hell that is. I don’t mind learning new things, especially if my teacher is the team's older and very hot co-founder.


I’m not exactly what you call a foodie. Give me instant ramen or a protein shake any day. But when Holly shows up at work with a food truck as her application for the chef’s position, I’m ready to trade; I’ll show her how to play video games if she’ll teach me how to appreciate food. She’ll get to do something that she hadn’t as a kid, and I get to spend time with her.

Everything’s fine until my fans see us interacting during a livestream. The next thing I know, the company gives Holly her own cooking stream and wants me to help. It would be perfect if it wasn’t for the jealousy, backstabbing, and drama that unfold while she’s breaking more than a few eggs. When one hot night has me questioning my entire professional existence, do I go adventuring on this romantic side quest, or will I stumble and break her heart—or worse, both of ours?
