Seth Mason's life as a macaroni and cheese food truck owner in Austin, Texas, is pretty good, except for one thing: he'd like to find a man to share that life with. As part of an organization Seth founded, he donates leftovers to the local homeless shelter, and meets Ben, a new employee. He's a preppy guy, and very much not Seth's usual type, but the attraction is strong and not going away.
Ben's just moved to Austin from Connecticut to take a job as a case manager at the Austin City Mission, the first time he's left home and family. But only a short time after he starts work, he meets a man who, though he looks like an extra in a surfing movie, intrigues him. He's hardly seen what life in Austin has to offer, and yet finds he wants to discover that with Seth's help.
The passion burns hot between them--hotter even than Austin in the dog days of summer, and neither man can deny it. As they grow closer, both must decide if they have the necessary ingredients for lasting love, or if the relationship will go up in smoke.
I adored this book! I loved that the food truck worked only in Mac and Cheese. Mac and Cheese is the king of comfort food. The characters were fun and interesting. I loved that the area food trucks also gave their leftovers to a homeless shelter. What a great idea! I wish that more restaurants and stores would give the nearly outdated or the leftovers to help others. We have so much in this country but not everyone has enough to eat and there are so many who need a hand up. I love the way that Ben and Seth kind of bumble into dating. My only real complaint about the book is that the ending is so abrupt and it felt so unfinished.
