Kate Meader's debut novel, "Feel the Heat," is smart, funny and sexy hooooot.  I was literally smiling, chuckling or laughing out loud at some point on almost every page of this book. The hero is a rising star in the TV chef world and the heroine is the artsy, dutiful daughter of an old-world Italian Chicago Restaurateur. I loved how personal flaws drove these characters and gave them a sense of humanity and relatability.  Meader has a deft mastery of subtly turning a phrase in such a way as to heighten both it's meaning and hilarity.   I highlighted lines that made me laugh and I can tell you, my book is awash in yellow.  I can't wait for the next installment in this series.

Life's too short, isn't it? Well, you can call your sister, or text. When you go to college, you can do the same for the rest of your family. It's impossible to not grow up, so the best thing you can do is accept it. And, at college, you'll make new friends! Sorry, l'm the advice giving kind, more so than the comforting word giver person.

    This book is fantastic!

    So many romance novels start to read the same after a while. And there is a formula to telling these stories to be sure, boy meets girl etc. But what makes this book stand out is its realism and its humor.

    The characters felt real. For once the hero of the story says and does things that a man actually WOULD do in real life.

    Jack is a macho hero with an ego. But he's also a man who realized he has to keep his ego in check or he will continue to be hurt by the women in his life who are only interested in him for his stardom (and his cooking).

    Lilli is a strong female character who has her own self doubt. She can stand on her own two feet, knowing what she wants in a physical way yet being vulnerable enough to be hurt from being picked on when she was younger. Haven't we all felt this way at some point in our lives?

    On top of all of these people who feel as though they live in a real city (Chicago,) having real problems and having real relationships, this story has an honest sense of humor. They are able to laugh at themselves as we laugh with them. And the supporting characters also have personality and are developed to such an extent that they could have their own stories to tell as well.

    I really enjoyed this and look forward to more.
