Essentially this is a short contemporary romance with a LOT of heat. I agree with some of the other reviewers, in that we could've done with a little more story. Also the relationship is founded on sex, which we even have the H thinking at one point. He muses as to whether the relationship can work because they don't know each other. They sleep together quickly even though there is the business problem that is potentially explosive. This is not a deep story and if you want a quick, easy, not very complicated and very steamy book, this is the one for you.

The Sweetest Seduction by Crista McHugh is the first book in the Kelly brothers contemporary romance series. I was provided a copy of this book from the publisher and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

Lia's mother put Lia's services as a chef up for auction and now Lia has to cook dinner for her mother's well off friend and her sons. If she didn't know better, she would suspect her mother was matchmaking. Once Lia meets Mrs. Kelly she relaxes and decides to make the best of the situation.
Then a few of Maureen's boys begin to arrive. Adam is a well off business man and works entirely too hard and too much for a social life. But, when he meets Lia and taste her incredible dishes, the two suddenly remember they have hormones. Before the night was over they would respond to those dormant feelings, but just manage to escape making a huge blunder. As it turns out that's a good thing. Adam finds out he owns the lease on Lia's restaurant and he is about to evict her for a more well known and high maintenance client.
Adam delivers the news to Lia but just can't throw her to the wolves. He tells her he will try to convince his client to take a look at some other possible locations, giving Lia at least a small amount of hope. In the meantime, she and Adam decide they should silence those raging hormones.

The set up is sticky. Adam has the chance to put people before business and to grab the chance to have a life outside of work. Lia was hurt once before and it is really important to her to maintain her independence. Adam will find that Lia drives a hard bargain and he will have to make a few hard choices when he is threatened with a lawsuit.
The story here is a good one.

Lia is a workaholic. She has big dreams and is willing to sacrifice everything to make them come true. She refuses to sit on the sidelines and watch the world go by. Adam has the power to either make or break Lia. With just a word he can shut down her restaurant and her dreams. When the two first met, the chemistry is off the charts. Unfortunately, neither of them realized that theirs would be a working relationship.

I was pleasantly surprised by The Sweetest Seduction. The characters were fun, the story sweet, and the connection between Lia and Adam was sizzling. The storyline itself was entertaining, and there was enough suspense to keep me wondering exactly how things were going to work themselves out.

This is the first book I have read by this author, but I will be looking for more from her, and this series in particular. There was just enough of an introduction to each of the other Kelly brothers to make me curious to find out more about them. The writing style is easy and charming and makes for a fun, sexy read.

“Have you ever felt that way about something, been caught totally by surprise and never realized how deep you were into it until it totally consumed you?”—Lia

Lia’s dreams are finally within her reach. Her restaurant is wildly popular, and she’s getting great reviews. And best of all, she meets the handsome and successful Adam who happens to be as attracted to her as she is to him. Everything is looking up—way up! Well, except for the fact that Adam happens to be the owner of the building her restaurant is in and is planning on giving her space to a world famous chef when her lease runs out in a month. She’s about to lose everything, but if both Adam and Lia fight for each other, then both of them might actually have more than their dreams…

“Until he settled the restaurant problem, they didn’t stand a chance.”—Adam’s thoughts

Oooh, what a tough one! There’s nothing worse than possibly meeting the person of your dreams and then find out you’re the one about to destroy their dreams! I couldn’t help but feel bad for the timing for our two workaholic leads. They finally decide to live a little and have some fun with each other and then discover that professionally, they’re very entwined. It’s a really hard dilemma for Adam, because it’s not just his choice whether to renew Lia’s lease or not since he has to deal with a temperamental diva chef and a board of investors. Poor Lia is literally at the mercy of whatever the owner decides! I was totally rooting for these two throughout the book even though I couldn’t help but feel that if I was in Lia’s shoes, I would be soooo furious that I wouldn’t have given Adam a chance.

I liked the characters and felt like we got to know them and sympathize what they’re going through.
