Lina knows never mix business with pleasure, its too bad no one told that to the hot, handsome head chef and owner of The Cookhouse. Widower Eric Reid, father to two teenage sons has his work cut out for him. Trying to hold onto his dream, he needs that lucky break. Restaurant reviewer Lina has been secretly reviewing his cuisine while trying hard to keep her hands off.
The problem, that man is as irresistible as his food. Eric hasn't been interested in anyone long enough to pull him away from his kitchen since before his wife died and he wants Lina desperately. Can Lina remain professional and stay away?
First, I wanted to say that the chemistry between these two spark right off the bat. You'd have to feel that tension if you blow up within a few minutes that he's in your face. Second, the secondary characters were memorable and cute, helping bring these two together. I could see Lina's point in keeping away, considering she'd seen first hand what can happen when you mix business with pleasure. I was happy when they both saw the light and allowed their feelings for each other put their concerns about appearances away. Great read, can't wait to read more from this author.
