Blurb from the cover:
In the next sizzling romance in Kristen Proby’s New York Times bestselling Fusion series, two celebrity chefs compete in a culinary competition, but resisting each other will prove to be the greater challenge.
Cooking isn’t what Mia Palazzo does, it’s who she is. Food is her passion . . . her pride . . . her true love. She’s built a stellar menu full of delicious and sexy meals for her restaurant, Seduction. Now, after being open for only a few short years, Mia’s restaurant is being featured on Best Bites TV. To say Seduction is a wild success is an understatement. All the blood, sweat, tears, and endless hours of work Mia has put into the restaurant has finally paid off.
Then Camden Sawyer, the biggest mistake of her life, walks into her kitchen . . .
Camden’s celebrity chef status is world-renowned. He’s the best there is, and the kitchen is where he’s most at home. He can’t resist the invitation to Portland for a showdown against Mia for a new television show. Mia was in his life years ago, and just like before, he’s met his match in the beautiful Italian spitfire. The way she commands the kitchen is mesmerizing, and her recipes are clever and delicious. He’s never had qualms about competition, and this is no different. He can’t wait to go head to head with Mia. But can he convince her the chemistry they share in the kitchen would be just as great in the bedroom as well?
As Mia and Camden face off, neither realizes how high the stakes are as their reputations are put on the line and their hearts are put to the ultimate test.
My rating: 3.25 stars out of a scale of 5
My review: I was provided a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest and fair review.
This didn’t end up being exactly what I expected but it still turned out ok. When I read “celebrity chef competition” I thought it was going to be more like that show Chopped, which maybe is an unrealistic expectation but it didn’t end up being quite that way. It was still a good book! It was a cute story and I liked it. There were also some things about it that I didn’t necessarily care for. There was one part where Mia is a b*tch to Camden in her kitchen at work and he had to apologize to her afterwards for an under the breath comment that he made, but I thought he was kind of justified in what he said. I mean was it rude yes but she was being a b*tch to him and taking out her aggression on him for no reason at all. I thought that there should have been a little more apologizing from her and a little less from him. Other than that though, the story was a sweet story about a second chance at your first love.
