You can call me arrogant as much as you want. But when you're the best at what you do and have the hottest restaurant on the west coast, with enough Michelin stars to make Gordon Ramsay's head spin, you've earned the right to your confidence.

When I give an instruction in the kitchen, it's not a suggestion--it's an order. So when a new chef thinks she can do things her way, and dares to say so to my face, even her sharp wit and gorgeous pouty lips don't make it okay. 

But I have to admit, she's got talent. She's creative in the kitchen and not even that double-breasted chef jacket can hide her perfect body. As I get to know her, I can't help wanting to know everything she thinks. I've never met a more talented chef. And I've never met a sassier and sexier woman in my life.

There's only one way this push and pull can end.

With her in my bed, begging for more.

Maria’s Review

➦This one hit real close to home, people. I, too, both like the hero and the heroine of this book, very very very much love food.

➦But, unlike the hero and the heroine of this book, I only enjoy the actual eating part, not the cooking. That’s not to say I’m not an excellent chef.

➦Jake, buddy, you would me. But you know what? I don’t wanna talk about it. Let’s talk about this book instead. So this world renown chef hires a new line chef for his awesomesauce restaurant. But when he pretends to be a customer and tastes one of his dishes he realizes one of the ingredients is different. There is going to be a confrontation, people, and you want to be there for it! :p

➦I recommend this book if you’re looking for a solid romance read with great banter, hot steam and likable yet very opinionated main characters. When faced with a choice between a career and love relationship, which one is more important? Can they have both?
