This was an enjoyable story. I liked both Lauren and Donal and liked their story. This is the first story I've read by this author and I liked it well enough I may try more of her work in the future.
Lauren is a (32 year old) chef that was working under a TV chef on a cooking show. Unfortunately, when the show's celebrity chef (aka her boss) lost it on live TV, everyone on the show lost their jobs. Desperate for a quick recovery, Lauren takes a contract position for 8 weeks of cooking for a Rugby team in Ireland. Lauren's mother is disabled and she doesn't like being away from her but figures it's only temporary.
Donal is 22 years old and is a hooker for his professional Ruby team. Donal is currently benched due to an injury to his Achilles tendon which he hopes will heal up well. Due to some stuff that happened between his parents when he was younger, Donal's relationship with his father is strained.
Lauren and Donal meet her first day of cooking for the team. The regular lead cook had an accident right after she got there and it put Lauren in charge. As luck would have it, the previous cook was a bit lame so Lauren's cooking was met with much appreciation. While Donal shared in the appreciation of her cooking, Lauren herself was of much more interest to Donal and he made his interest clear. However, Donal has a reputation as a man-whore and it makes Lauren leery. The 10 years difference doesn't help and Lauren's past heartbreaks makes her unwilling to trust easily.
Although Lauren tries to stay away from Donal, he's persistent and eventually gets her to go out with him. Gaining her trust to turn the relationship into something more is difficult...especially since Lauren's visa is only good for 9 weeks and she'll have to go home once it ends. They do manage to work past these difficulties and the story ends with Donal and Lauren starting on a HEA together.
This was an enjoyable story. Lauren and Donal were good MCs. While I liked that they worked things out, I wasn't thrilled with the reason Donal and Lauren were able to be together more easily (something that was more sad then bad). Still, I liked the characters fine and the story was good overall. :)
Lauren becomes the team chef after some scandal in her own career. She isn't looking for anything but a distraction and a job. Donal is immediately attracted to her, and pursues her. She is reluctant to give him any sort of chance because he is so much younger, and because she indirectly works with him. You will fall in love with Donal in this story!! He's cocky, but he has the biggest heart. I loved him and Lauren. Also loved the Cam-eo in the end. Love Rebecca's books. Don't miss this one!!
Donal Casey knows how to heat things up in the kitchen with the new chef in town.
Finally we get to see what Donal has been hiding and hinting at. I have to say, I like Rebecca's approach on this one and I absolutely loved Donal's dirty talking. The man sure knows what he's doing.
I may be a little biased because I fell for Donal in in Trying Sophie and Ruck Me - I'm so glad to finally have his story.
