Salt and Sugar by Rebecca Carvalho was a emotional but sweet and cute enemies to lovers tale that with a Romeo and Juliet feel when the children of two rival Brazilian Bakeries fall in love. I'm an absolute sucker for those Romeo and Juliet style retellings and anything with star-crossed lovers or enemies/rivals. I loved the banter and writing style and the world building was chef's kiss. I additionally loved that the story wasn't set in the United States. I feel like books set outside of the United States(and not in a fantasy world) are harder to find. Lari and Pedro working to save their families bakeries together felt so special and pure. This book was truly adorable and took me on a journey of emotions. Special thanks to Net Galley and Bookish First for providing me both an digital arc and a print arc of the book. All opinions, however are my own.
