Photographer Lili DeLuca spends all her time working at her family's Italian restaurant, instead of following her dream of getting an MFA. When famous British chef Jack Kilroy unexpectedly challenges her father to a cook-off, Lili decides she's tired of playing it safe and vows to seduce the tempting Brit. But once a video of her and Jack kissing goes viral and her luscious (if voluptuous) butt starts trending on Twitter, Lili fears she's cooked up a recipe for disaster . . .
Jack Kilroy's celebrity has left him feeling used and used up. While Lili's oh-so-sexy moans when she tastes his delicious creations turn him on, he's even more aroused by how this beautiful, funny woman is unimpressed by his fame. He knows they could be amazing together, if she could only see past his rabid, bitch-fork-wielding fan base. Now as he's about to start a new prime time TV cooking show, can Jack convince Lili to realise her own ambitions-and turn up the heat in his kitchen?
It was a good book, much like her others in hat they are enjoyable but don't have a complex story line, so they are very easy reads.
Character wise, i liked Lili, and the fact that she's curvy, but i hated how much of the story line was dedicated to that and how much hate and cyber bullying she got for being curvy. Lili was actually a strong female character for this type of book.
Jack was a bit of a twat times, i read too many books that have male characters like this that i think i am getting a little immune to their stupidity, i don't know how i feel about Jack because at times i loved him and at times he annoyed the crap out of me and I'm still on the fence about him.
The rest of the characters were good, and there were so many of them that at times it felt some of them disappeared without any explanation, so that was a bit annoying as well.
The story line, like i said, didn't have much substance but it was a quick enjoyable read. I am currently in a reading slump and books like this make sure i am still reading but it doesn't put me even further in one. It wasn't a terrible story but it also wasn't the best, but it was somewhere in the middle.
Until Next Time
