From the Author

Dear Reader,

Ever since Cinderella, we've fallen in love with makeover stories. The girl who's transformed not only in the way she looks but how she feels about herself, has left generations of women dreaming of their own evolution from caterpillar to butterfly. And we've all wished up that handsome prince who'll see the beauty in us always.

But what if you're already a member of cooking 'royalty'? And despite someone --a very sexy someone--wanting to transform you, deep down you're quite happy the way you are. 

In Dishing up Desire, Kirin Hart's image as a homely celebrity chef is in crisis. She's been accused of sexual harassment by a younger employee and since settling out of court, her fortunes have plummeted. She's now desperate to win back her good name, and the public's trust. Enter Blake Matthews--smoking hot ex-model and image consultant guru--who must turn Kirin's image around in two weeks if he's to acquire L.A's most prestigious P.R firm.

Kirin's been influenced by power hungry men before, and to have another, younger one tell her what she's doing wrong with her looks and behavior, rankles. But Kirin's battled her whole life to prove her worth and she's not afraid of hard work - even if it does mean learning to wear heels and having a gorgeous man getting intimately acquainted with her underwear.

Given that level of interest, it's not long before things heat up between Kirin and Blake, but they must fight their surprising and powerful attraction--Kirin because Blake's a younger man and that's the last place she can go right now, and Blake because he can't jeopardize this assignment or he'll lose the company. 

And it's not only Kirin's image that's about to be flipped. Blake might be very easy on the eye, but there's a whole lot more to him than meets it. As Kirin starts to look beneath his smoldering looks and rugged charm, there are a few surprises in store, and Blake's belief in what he sees in the mirror is one of them.

Please visit my website: barbaradeleo.com to learn more about Blake and Kirin, and my other Indulgence titles.

I hope you enjoy reading Dishing up Desire as much as I enjoyed bringing it to you!

Wishing you love and laughter,

Barbara

I just loved this book. I read it through in one sitting.

How refreshing to have characters who read as real people. I loved Kirin a woman unsure of who she really is has taken a bad hit with a sex scandal. Thank you Ms. DeLeo for not having a perfect heroine but a woman who worries about her body. All Kirin wants is to be known for her cooking. Enter Blake, sexy image consultant who thinks Kirin needs to be true to herself and update her image. With reluctance and through wonderful dialogue we see Kirin resist Blake as she's slowly falling for the younger but oh so sexy Blake. Did I mention that Blake is hot? He's smoking hot. He hasn't told Kirin he needs to turn her image around so he can buy the PR company. Both Kirin and Blake had different goals but the author did a great job of weaving everything together. Through the story we see their falling for each other and it was done in a believable way that by the end of the book I was desperate to see them together but wasn't sure if they would. The sex scenes are steamy and hit all the right notes. The HEA moment made this reader sigh and wipe a tear. I highly recommend this book. A must read. I look forward to reading more from Ms. DeLeo.

I loved this latest offering from Barbara DeLeo, both Blake and Kirin where fantastic characters and I found I wished for their happiness throughout the story (which I couldn't put down!)
The evolution of their true personalities came out slowly but this made it very easy to relate to them both on an emotional level - even if their high flying lives are a far cry my my own!!
The other characters, Kirin's mother and Lucy, were also so enjoyable and added richness to the story.

Just like Contract for Marriage, this is a lovely escape.....

Looking forward to more from Barbara :-)

This book was not at all what I expected, but I still loved it. In my mind's eye, I imagined this book would have a lot more to do with the fact that she was a chef, which is what initially made me interested in this book. I have a thing for chef romances. The fact that Kirin is a chef plays a fairly small role in this book. The majority is really cleaning up her image after a false accusation of sexual Harassment took place.

Kirin and Blake are a hot couple, and there were so many times where I wanted to just smack Kirin for being so stuck in her ways and disliking the changes that Blake was suggesting for her own good. Not only was their attraction believable, it was deliciously forbidden. I couldn't help but worry the entire book that she was going to get caught and all hell would break loose.

I was sitting at the edge of my chair devouring pages until the very end. This is a great and fast read, just in time for summer.

Note: I received a free copy of this book for honest review.

Dishing Up Desire by Barbara DeLeo is a sweet, yet slightly spicy romantic read. Thirty-four year old celebrity chef and domestic goddess Kirin Hart has been living a nightmare for the past year. Her integrity and wholesomeness took a huge hit when she was wrongly sued by an employee ten years her junior for sexual harassment. Her life has become a media circus and as a result, she has become hardened and difficult to deal with. She is now in debt and her public image is in the gutter. The multimillion dollar empire that she and her late husband created, "Cooking with Hart" is in danger of crumbling. Kirin needs a complete makeover; heart, body and soul.

Former model Blake Matthews is the best Public Relations and Image Consultant in the business. Everyone and everything he touches turns to gold. Once he acquires the prestigious firm of Dent and Douglas, (D&D), his conglomerate will be complete. However, Kirin Hart is their client and her unwillingness to cooperate is causing the upstanding reputation of D&D to go down the tubes. They will not sell him the company until D&D's reputation is back on track. Blake has been given two weeks to change Kirin's image and prove to D&D that he can maintain their high quality of services.

Due to a tragedy in Blake's childhood, it is difficult for him to form and maintain personal relationships of any kind. Thus, he doesn't have any close friends and has never been in love.

Kirin and Blake do not hit it off at first. It is difficult for Kirin to trust anyone and Blake is no exception. However, between his good-looks, sound advice and public image knowledge, he is slowly gaining her confidence. Spending so much time together naturally causes feelings to develop and cultivate. They begin to transform each other while sharing secrets, dreams and hopes.

If you are looking for a quick sexy read with good story development, get this book.
