Strohm provided me with an adorable story The banter was on point, and I laughed quite often, but this was also a little different from her previous three books Those leaned heavily on the comedy part of rom com, and this book, while quite funny, featuredtender and heartfelt moments.Many of those moments starred Rosie She really tugged at my heartstrings Her backstory and the interactions with her family were all quite touching The texts from her brothers always made me laugh, and her mother s endless support and love never failed to deliver some feels.This book incorporated many elements I love, and together resulted in a great reading experience The setting I love Paris, and Strohm did a great job taking us into the city Not only did she bring us to some popular places, but she gave us a pretty immersive eating experience too Boarding school I have an affinity for stories set in boarding schools, and we get that dynamic combined with the fervor of a reality cooking show and high school antics The food This was a culinary school, and there was a LOT of cooking, baking, and eating going on Strohm must be a foodie, because the descriptions were quite vivid and mouth watering The characters What a fun group of characters Each one had their own little quirk, and combined to form one fantastic friend group The friendships were strong in this one They may have been competing against one another, but they were still always there to lend a hand or a shoulder to cry on They supported and encouraged each other, and there were a lot of awww worthy moments shared The romance was adorable Yes, there was some miscommunication, or rather, a lack thereof, and also some misinterpreted signals, but there were also a bunch of tender and sweet moments, and I thought Henry and Rosie were precious together Overall This book was a tasty treat stuffed with an adorable romance, fantastic friendships, lots of heartwarming moments, and tons of food ARC provided in exchange for an

teen protagonists, Rosie Radeke and Henry Yi, aboard their flight to Paris Both have been selected to attend the very prestigious Ecole of Chef Laurent The program is part competition, part culinary school, open to only 20 students per year Being selected is an honor and both Rosie and Henry are full of excitement and trepidation upon their flight.Absolutely adorable from the very first pages, featuring one of the best Meet Cutes I have ever readLove a la Mode reminded me that sometimes it is okay to just read something that makes your heart happy There was nothing complicated, no horrible hidden secrets or murders or deceptions, just love, reflection and growth.Oh and a heck of a lot of fun, food and friends In addition to Henry and Rosie, the story incorporates quite a few of the other students who are from different areas around the world They each brought such unique personalities to the story If you are someone who enjoys stories with strong friendship groups, you should definitely check this one out I loved the support and camaraderie amongst the teens Yumi in particular I loved her so much The banter between the characters is so great I was laughing out loud only 3% into the book.As romance heavy YA Contemporaries go, this book is replete with the angsty romance tropes that you would typically find, but they were really well done here It never felt cheesy to me or overplayed, just nice, steady and sweet I loved watching the evolution of the relationship between Rosie and Henry, even through the miscommunications that made me want to scream, I just truly felt filled to the brim with warmth from this story.Thank you so much to the publisher, Disney Hyperion, for providing me with a copy to read and review I appreciate the opportunity to provide my feedback and I look forward to hearing what other readers think of this one Well done, Ms Strohm Very well done.Original ARC received Teens chefs in Paris YES, please I would love some of that 4.5 starsI totally did not realize just how much I needed an adorable romance until I picked this up But yes I did need this book And you probably do too.Because not only was it absolutely adorable and swoon worthy and filled with delicious baked goods foods I couldn t get enough of, it also was just a whole lot of fun and a perfect get out of your head read Sometimes you just need that light enjoyable read to take away from some of the darkness moodiness of life, and this book put me i 4.5 starsI totally did not realize just how much I needed an adorable romance until I picked this up But yes I did need this book And you probably do too.Because not only was it absolutely adorable and swoon worthy and filled with delicious baked goods foods I couldn t get enough of, it also was just a whole lot of fun and a perfect get out of your head read Sometimes you just need that light enjoyable read to take away from some of the darkness moodiness of life, and this book put me into such a good mood.I am, admittedly, one of those people who do like watching cooking baking shows even though my culinary talent only extends as far as following very basic recipes, but it was so atmospherically Parisian that I couldn t help but enjoy But seriously If you are looking for a low stress read which is very important from time to time feat delicious foods and a happy, fluffy romance, you need to pick this up Not only was I drooling the whole way through, I found both of the protagonists likeable and sweet and very well suited for each other It was pleasantly romantic with a perfect dash of teenage angst that I sped through this book rather quickly.And I mean, I love the sound of Paris I ve never been, but Paris books are so fun and magical to read Paris anything is fun and magical Europe anything sounds wonderful aka anything that isn t the trashfire of my country right now So if you re someone bothered by that tourist y romanticism that I love so much, you might not want to pick this up But if you re someone like me who would be happy with even Canada, you need this book in your life I thought it was very well paced and filled with an endearing cast of characters outside of the protagonists Their friend group was endearing, and even the antagonists who weren t really antagonists were enjoyable too And the meet cutes were adorable and even the side characters smaller plots were enjoyable and well woven into the novel Which is, admittedly, something you don t see very often.Honestly, I don t have a lot of criticism for this book, or justification for the 4 stars I guess I just felt like something was missing although this was a really enjoyable couple of hours, I wanted a little bitMaybe atangible plotline, because I admit that a lot of the struggle was internal, and I kind of wantedthan that But overall, I very thoroughly enjoyed reading this, and although it might not be one of my Most Moving Books of 2018, it was definitely worth the read and I wouldn t want to unread it I definitely hope to pick up Strohm s earlier novel, Prince in Disguise as it s been on my TBR for a while now, and this has cemented my enjoyment of her writing I d recommend Love la Mode to anyone looking for a light fluffy contemporary read full of atmospheric Parisian ness, an enjoyable romance, and some sweet and savory treats that will get your stomach rumbling Thank you so much to Disney Hyperion and Netgalley for providing me with a digital review copy in exchange for an honest review Blog Instagram Twitter SO FREAKING CUTE OMFGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG salty about the cover change but the book is amazing so its fine
