Book Description

"A sweet and sexy treat! Don't miss it!" --Bella Andre, New York Times bestselling author

Out of the frying pan. . .and into the fire!

Desperate to escape the spotlight of her failed marriage to a fellow celebrity-chef, Carly di Matisse left New York City for a tiny town in the Blue Ridge Mountains. The restaurant she's running these days may not be chic, but in Pine Mountain she can pretend to be the tough cookie everybody knows and loves. Until she finds herself spending too much time with a way-too-hot contractor whose rugged good looks melt her like butter. . .

Jackson Carter wasn't looking for love. But he's not the kind of man to walk away from a worksite--or from a fiery beauty whose passionate nature provides some irresistible on-the-job benefits. . .

It's the perfect temporary arrangement for two ravenous commitment-phobes--except that Jackson and Carly keep coming back for seconds. . .and thirds. . .and fourths. . .

"Kimberly Kincaid knows how to whip up a delicious love story." --Susan Donovan

"Smart, fun, and heartwarming." –Jill Shalvis

    5.0 out of 5 stars Romance at it's Best June 3, 2014
    By Sbart61
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Carly di Matisse celebrity-chef, left a disastrous marriage and moved to Pine Mountain to restart to her life, on a temporary basis. Meet contractor Jackson Carter, forever bachelor. Jackson is fixing the deck on Carly's rental when they first meet. Neither one wants to admit the sparks are flying immediately. Both are commitment phobes so maybe friends with benefits will work. Not!!
    I am absolutely in love with this small town in the Mountains. This is the second book in the series but can be read as a stand alone. I love the friendship these characters have especially Jackson and Shane, nice to see male bonding, along with the girl friendships. The sexual chemistry of Jackson and Carly is fun. Of course no book of Ms. Kincaid's can be without food, recipes included. So, romance and food how can you go wrong, highly recommend this book. Can't wait for book three. I received this book from Net Galley for an honest review.

    First thoughts after…
    I can't wait for Sloane's book and MAN I would love to see a book with Adrian!

    How distracted did I get?
    Gimme Some Sugar is a wonderful follow up to Turn Up the Heat! I loved getting to know Chef Carly and Jackson. Carly is funny, sweet and independent. Considering she's dealing with a horrible divorce her attitude is amazing. Jackson, sigh…a new hottie mctottie to fall for. He is sweet and sexy. I enjoyed his interactions with his mother, Carly and Shane. You really get to know a character by how he treats his friends and family! ;) Though you never really see/meet Carly's ex-husband there's a build of what he may be up to trying to delay the divorce and I found the result anticlimactic. However if you enjoy a good romance with a little steam I highly recommend Gimme Some Sugar.
    I received a galley copy for an honest review.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Great Read! June 3, 2014
    By C. N.
    Format:Kindle Edition
    I absolutely loved this book. Carly and Jackson are just great together. They both are working through issues that make them think that love isn't in the cards for them. At one point my heart broke for Jackson. There is romance, humor, definite steam and drama. Definitely a must read and a great series. Can't wait to visit Pine Mountain again. Don't read hungry!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Feeding the Heart June 3, 2014
    By Anna
    Format:Kindle Edition
    I loved Jackson and Carly!!! From the first moment they meet each other you know the sparks are gonna flame high. Carly is the new chef at Pine Mountain Resort. Escaping from a nasty divorce and soon to be ex husband, she takes the position in the resort. Jackson is the carpenter that rebuilds her deck. The first meeting had me laughing so hard I couldn't see straight. But from there the sparks fly. Jackson having issues in his past doesn't think that he can be what Carly needs but he is determined to "feed her". He soon finds out that he needs to feed her heart. You will laugh, and cry along the way. Join them in their journey of discovery and the melding of their hearts together. A must read from Kimberly Kincaid!!

The chemistry between these two is so hot you feel the sparks coming out of the pages. Both have issues they need to deal with, some fun moments and definitely moments when your heart just hurts for this couple. Read it! You won't be able to put it down. Looking forward to the next book in this series.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Delectable!! June 10, 2014
    Format:Kindle Edition
    Never one to disappoint her fans, Kincaid has cooked up another steamy romance, foodie style!

    Chef Carly is a spicy Italian woman starting over, and the last thing she needs is the epitome of Adonis throwing her off the road to recovery.

    Jackson’s a single man who has always managed to guard his heart until the remote slinging beauty caught him by surprise. If the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, then he’s minced meat!

    These two butt heads on more than one occasion, but each recognizes the hurt the other tries to hide. They’re both on a path to self-discovery, but comfort each other through the process. Not everything is what it seems, but the passion between this couple is undeniable. I loved tagging along during their journey.

    As with the previous installment of the Pine Mountain series, the author delivered an exceptional story that stimulates the senses! The setting and the characters are so inviting, I could see myself having a meal with them. Every emotional aspect is balanced perfectly, and the romantic scenes are scrumptious! In her wonderfully unique style, Kimberly Kincaid makes you swoon with every chapter. I highly recommend this novel, with snacks on hand!

    3.0 out of 5 stars I liked it! June 3, 2014
    By LJT
    Format:Kindle Edition
    I am glad I got the opportunity to revisit the small town of Pine Mountain, Pennsylvania. The people are genuine, the Blue Ridge Mountains are beautiful and thanks to celebrity chef Carly di Matisse, the upscale restaurant at the Pine Mountain resort serves scrumptious dishes.

    Carly is a petite, New York City chef that now makes her home in Pine Mountain. She is in the process of getting a divorce from her cheating, good for nothing husband, who is also a celebrity chef. She is working very hard to make a name for herself without any outside influences. Jackson Carter is a good-looking contractor that believes he is unworthy of love. It takes the love of a good woman to change his belief system.

    As much as I enjoyed this story, I found the pace to be quite sluggish. Carly and Jackson are great together, but it took forever for them to do something about the feelings that were developing between them. When Carly and Jackson are together, their chemistry is combustible. Ms. Kincaid kept me chuckling through the use of food play on words and anecdotes. Looking forward to the next book in the series!
