Hugs & Quiches contains the following content:
As this is a cooking competition, there is a general content warning for eating and preparation of food.
Masturbation with a wand toy, oral and manual sex between two cisgender women
Discussion of an emotionally and physically abusive marriage, declined marriage proposal, description of small injuries sustained during cooking, descriptions of blood and minor gore, discussion of a parent with cancer, parental death from cancer (off-page, minor character), discussion of diets, diet culture, the appearance of an abusive spouse, the threat of inter-partner violence, and a vegan character is asked to cook meat and offal.
Though for Zoe Cooper and Amelia Hughes, it’s the very first step toward their happy ending.
It’s been a year since Zoe Cooper packed up her daughter and fled her abusive husband with only the clothes on her back. But life as a waitress, food blogger, and “roommate” to her supportive mother has turned into a holding pattern, and her dream of launching her own catering company and cooking school feels like just another fairy tale ending–when she’s no Cinderella.
Until the newest cooking competition comes to town, and suddenly magic just might be at Zoe’s fingertips with the chance to audition for Heating Up the Kitchen.
If only she can beat Amelia.
Fresh out of a disastrous relationship and determined to prove her ex wrong, Amelia’s got a chip on her shoulder and is ready for a grudge match in the kitchen. When she locks horns with Amelia, there’s more steaming than their buns as the two competitive young chefs vie for the top spot on the show…
…and the top spot in each others’ hearts.
There’s more cooking in this kitchen than the food, and romance is on the menu. When hatred turns to heat and threatens to boil over, their rivalry might just end in disaster.
Or Zoe and Amelia might just find the future they need in each other–in between stolen hugs and quiches.
