A dish best served hot / Natalie Caña.

Caña, Natalie, (author.).

A stressed-out single dad and caregiver to his mischievous abuelo butts heads and creates sparks with a teacher and social justice advocate.
Santiago "Saint" Vega gets a second shot at love with Lola León, but when duty to his family forces him to do something she'll never forgive, will everything he's built come crumbling down? Years ago, Saint walked away from the girl he loved to fulfill his duty. Now he's struggling to build bridges between his drifting family, take on more responsibilities at his uncle's construction company, figure out why his daughter refuses to talk at school and curtail his mischievous abuelo's escalating pranks. Then she walks back into his life. Social justice advocate Lola León has returned to Humboldt Park for two to help care for her dear abuelo and to serve the community center she loved, particularly the shelter for unhoused LGBTQIA+ youths. When she finds out that the Vegas are responsible for endangering both, she is more than ready to go to war--even if the boy she never forgot is standing at the front of the battlefield. Neither of them expects to become allies in saving the shelter, helping Saint's daughter or ending the decades-long feud between their grandfathers. They definitely don't expect all of their old feelings to come rushing back. As Saint and Lola enter combat, they can't help but wonder where the other's true allegiance lies, and whether they'll win these battles only to lose each other.
