I love the novella format. Lily Everett draws her characters quickly and then lets their relationship grow before your eyes.

5.0 out of 5 stars For Mature Audiences, August 5, 2011

I recently read a movie review in the New York Times in which the reviewer observed that the "old screwball idea of heterosexual courtship as a battle of equally matched, contending forces is close to extinct." That may be true in films these days but not in romance novels. Equally matched grown-up lovers can still be found, especially in the work of Louisa Edwards. Her first three books, the "Recipe for Love" series, featured hot chefs and smart, determined, and happily sexy women, who found adult relationships challenging and satisfying--physically, emotionally, and mentally. The first book in her second trilogy promises more of the same. In Too Hot to Touch, the hero and heroine knew each other as adolescents but meet again to find romance (and crazy hot sex) as adults. Adam, a world-traveling seeker of philosophical enlightenment and esoteric cooking techniques, has a broader range of experience than Juliet, who grew into womanhood and achieved professional standing right in the kitchen of his own family's restaurant in New York. Even so, Jules has some hard-earned wisdom of her own to share as the two learn things about each other, and themselves, in the process of falling in love while competing on the same team for a prestigious award which they hope will give the restaurant a much needed boost. They're surrounded by interesting characters, especially the judges in the contest, who include an ultra-sophisticated French woman of a certain age and a young rock-star food enthusiast who thinks she's the hottest thing since sliced baguettes. In short, Too Hot to Touch is a rich concoction for mature readers, and "mature" there doesn't just reference the sex scenes. It's a great read with characters who are just like real people we all know, except they're better looking, wittier, and lead more glamorous lives. Fun!
