Book Description


Heat...spice...chemistry...

Hot-tempered celebrity chef Paul Devoe has no problem handling those elements in the kitchen- but when Nanny Bridget Parker introduces them into his every day life, he quickly realizes that he is out of his league!

Bridget has raised "Tad" Devoe since he was born. He's much more of a son than a charge.   Bridget is devastated to learn that she might lose Tad when he goes to live with his negligent father after his mother's untimely death.

Bridget knows more about Paul from his television shows and cookbooks than she does from interacting with him in real life. She can count on one hand the number of hours that he's spent alone with his son. She is certain that Paul is not suitable to raise a little boy alone and will do anything to keep Tad safe and secure- but she never realized that her heart would be on the line.

Sweet, sensual and funny, this story will leave you HUNGRY FOR MORE!

5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshing *some spoilers* July 21, 2012
By M.L.
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Reasons I shouldn't have liked this book:

1. It's a contemporary romance and I normally read paranormal romance or science fiction. I like my fiction spiced up with a little something extra and out of the norm. Not Lifetime family dramas.

2. The heroine had body image issues. And I've come across too many books where reading about the heroine's issues just becomes draining or much eye rolling ensues.

3. A child is one of the major secondary characters. I read romance to read about relationships between adults, sans "cutesy" children who I feel should be seen and not heard.

4. The hero had a temper. *big eyeroll* I am way past over jerk heroes. Not even a little bit attractive and I usually find myself still hating them at the end of the book.

5. There was a misunderstanding that kept the hero and heroine apart for a time. This plot device is like beating a dead horse.

Reasons why I loved this book anyway:

1. I needed a change of pace from my normal reading habits (a book where every other character wasn't some dark creature of the night) and the premise of this book sounded really intriguing (am I the only one who thought of Chef Ramsey?).

2. Though she had her food issues, the author presented the heroine in such a way that her issues didn't detract from her character. And I never saw her as weak-willed, amazingly enough (which would have been so easy to have happen). And once you learned more about where her food issues came from, it gave a nice, realistic insight into her character and background.

3. The kid in the story actually made it better for me. I never thought I would say that.

The premise to this story had me eager to download and read it, but unfortunately, while the author has a definite ability to write well, I just couldn't care for her characters. At first, Bridget, a nanny to Paul's 4 year-old son, struck me as intelligent, caring, and strong. She loved the little boy under her care and clearly was going to make sure that he was well cared for. But then her eating neurosis takes over her character and I just started to be disgusted by her. You see, she is size 16, and she is afraid to eat in front of other people for fear of what they'll think of her. So she deals with this by not eating in front of people and then bingeing on total junk when she's alone. Worse, she is constantly crying about it.

Paul, on the other hand, is a chef. Not just any chef, mind you, but a celebrity chef with an apparently requisite, and definitely cliched, terrible temper. I had difficulty liking him from the beginning. In his dealings with other people, and in talking about his employees, he is extremely condescending and critical and just an outright jerk. But I guess this is okay when you're a self-loathing nanny whose entire life revolves around a four year-old. Temper tantrums have to be par for the course for her.

At about the 37% point in this book, I was starting to get really fed up with Bridget's self-destructive behavior. She is so utterly unrealistic and an oversimplified representation of how real women who struggle with their size think of themselves. That Paul accepts her as she is is sort of good but also sort of just weird--who could really want someone who cries so much?! I kept thinking that the two of them would have to change each other in some way. The potential was certainly there.

1.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't Get Past the Food Issues October 19, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I wanted to like this book. I think it might have been good, but I just couldn't stomach the way the heroine refused to eat in front of anyone, and then scarfed down a bunch of junk food. I guess it might be realistic, but it was just too cliche to have a plus-size heroine do that. When I read the occasional rubanesque romance, I want to read about a woman who is comfortable with herself. Maybe there's just too much realism for my personal preference in a woman obsessed with body image and hiding away to eat. We have too much of that sort of thing in society. I don't want to read it in a romance. Again, just a personal preference. The writing was fine, and the book will probably appeal to many others, but not me. This was the first Kindle book I have ever returned, and I only did so because I couldn't continue after reading only a few pages past the sample. Maybe I shouldn't review it, since I didn't read it all, but I know there are other readers out there who will find her own body image and food attitudes a turn-off. I just couldn't get past my own ick factors.

4.0 out of 5 stars Finally! A romance that isn't "perfect"! July 20, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Bridgette, our heroine, is the live-in nanny for little Tad. She had been with Tad and his mother from the moment of his birth. Upon the death of his mother, Tad is shuffled off to live with his father Paul--who happens to be a world famous chef.

Paul hadn't played a big part in Tad's life, and he had a lot to learn about how to raise a child. He decided to keep Bridgette as Tad's nanny to make the transition easier. The father/son relationship began slowly with a few mistakes along the way, but they both grow together.

What surprised Paul was the attraction he felt towards Bridgette. She shouldn't have been his type, but he found himself distracted from his job as head chef at his restaurant as the attraction grew. He had a reputation of a fierce temper at work that sometimes overflowed into his personal life.

Bridgette has a lot of self-esteem issues. Even though she's always been told she has a beautiful face, she just knows she can't be that attractive to men being a "fluffy" size 18. She isn't able to eat in front of people for fear they will look at her and mock her for it. So, she hides junk food and binges when she's alone. Bridgette feels attracted to Paul, but she believes she is unworthy of him because he is so "perfect" while she is so flawed.

The relationships between Paul and Tad as well as Paul and Bridgette don't necessarily get off to a good start. However, with patience and perseverance we see strong growth throughout. The flaws Bridgette sees in herself were completely relatable. I'm sure most women will understand and feel for Bridgette as she works through her insecurities. I like the way Paul's character was written.
