Paul Coccia ☆ 7 Read

Cub AUTHOR Paul CoccOf both the audience and the restaurant owner a sexy celebrity chef known as KCC When the owner makes it clear he is interested in what Theo might do outside the kitchen Theo has to decide how far he is willing to go to launch his caree. I mean this is a typical Orca book hi lo Fast paced super resolved ending predictable plot That being said I think these books are super important to continue publishing and have available for reluctant readers They hook you from the beginning and deal with issues that aren't in a lot of other YA fiction Best book ever Absolutely not Important in its own way Yes
