When food critic Claudia Thomas gets dumped on Valentine’s Day, she finds herself occupying a table for one at London’s hottest new restaurant. If her job wasn’t on the line, she’d skip the whole affair, but her editor’s waiting for a review—and with luck, an interview with sexy chef Ward Nicholls.
Ward, intrigued by the single woman in a restaurant full of couples, sets out to tease her palate. Claudia has never tasted anything so luscious as the special meal Ward prepares for her, but when the seduction moves from the restaurant to his bedroom, Claudia discovers the only thing more tempting than his food is the chef himself.
Their connection is instantaneous, sizzling, and spicy—until Claudia comes clean about her job, reopening a wound Ward had thought long-healed. Could one accidental lie of omission end a delicious relationship before it even has a chance to start?
(THIS IS FOR ADULT AUDIENCE)
This book starts out with a break up and ends with a plan. The read is quick and cute, with lots of food references. I love a man who can cook and Ward does it well. He’s an interesting character, full of intrigue and swagger. Claudia is a independent woman who needs a man like him. Their relationship has its bumps and bruises but in the end they work through it just like any real relationship should. This is definitely one of those cute novellas that is perfect for Valentine’s Day romance (or anytime you need some spice in your life).
