Product Details


Lavash at First Sight is a heartfelt and dazzling love story that’s good enough to eat. Taleen Voskuni deftly weaves together multiple narrative threads as loyal, intelligent, and overworked Armenian-American tech employee Nazeli sets out to woo the beautiful and charming Vanya—whose parents happen to be the sworn enemies of Nazeli’s parents. A competition at a Chicago food packaging conference provides an entertaining and dramatic setting, and the themes of family bonds, generational change, and finding a healthy balance in all aspects of life add poignant layers to the story. I devoured this fun, witty, and romantic book and can’t wait for whatever Voskuni writes next!”—Sarah Hawley, author of A Demon’s Guide to Wooing a Witch
Lavash at First Sight is a hilarious and heartwarming romance about finding your authentic self while celebrating where you came from. The chemistry between Ellie and Vanya sparked and sizzled–they were an absolute joy to read. Filled with forbidden love, family rivalry, and cooking competition shenanigans that will leave you with serious food cravings, I adored this deliciously sweet sapphic romance!”—Tori Anne Martin, USA Today bestselling author of This Spells Disaster

“A joyous celebration of Armenian Lebanese culture and cuisine set against a Chicago backdrop, Lavash at First Sight is a dazzling and transportive delight! Amidst family rivalry, clever competitions, and dreamy first dates, Taleen Voskuni expertly crafts a gorgeous love story that sizzles with heat. I fell so hard for Nazeli and Vanya that I could not put this book down!”—Courtney Kae, author of In the Case of Heartbreak

“A beautiful story rife with food and family rivalry, Lavash at First Sight is smart and sexy, inspiring readers to go after their heart’s desire. A dazzling romance.”—Ashley Herring Blake, USA Today bestselling author of Iris Kelly Doesn’t Date

Lavash at First Sight is a wonderfully lighthearted and loving look at family and identity, love and the importance of staying true to oneself. I just ate it up!”—Jenna Levine, USA Today bestselling author of My Roommate is a Vampire

“I love Taleen Voskuni’s voice so much—the way she can craft a beautifully descriptive sentence and then follow it up with a sly bit of humor. Lavash at First Sight is Voskuni at the top of her game with clever, flirty banter between Nazeli and Vanya even while they have to deal with the very real pressures from their feuding families. I feel like I could’ve spent hours with them enjoying a cocktail and sparking off each other on a Chicago rooftop bar, and I wanted to eat every single food item described on the page. What a delight of a book!”—Alicia Thompson, USA Today bestselling author of With Love, from Cold World

“Voskuni writes a heartfelt, fade-to-black sapphic romance that focuses on Ellie’s Armenian-diaspora and queer communities.”—Library Journal

“Voskuni brings welcome depth to her latest romance with her keen focus on Armenian culture, along with descriptions of food that will leave your mouth watering…A delectable contemporary romance that revolves around family and culture.”—Kirkus Reviews

“After wowing romance readers with her splendid debut, Sorry, Bro (2023), Voskuni is back with another fun and flirty rom-com that insightfully illustrates the importance of family and the universality of love while celebrating the food and heritage of Armenia and highlighting the joys awaiting visitors to Chicago.”—Booklist
