Overview


The Master Chefs dominated in the kitchen as well as the bedroom...

Devour Me is for adults age 18 and up due to mature subjects.

Taryn Cummings could not believe she was accepted into the prestigious International Institute of Culinary Arts culinary institute she dreamed of studying at in beautiful Paris, France. It was a far cry from her unglamorous life back home in New York where she helped her mother run their small family-owned restaurant called Sam's. The International Institute of Culinary Arts churned out the top chefs in the world, including the wildly sexy and eccentric Master Chef Errol King, whose celebrity personality was larger than life.

She wanted excitement in a city of romance and thrills, but arrived to find her apartment barely livable and herself in need of a suitable place to stay. A chance meeting at the Institute brings her face-to-face with her new roommate...the devilishly charming Errol King, who would be guest teaching her class this term.

The attraction is as hot as the fire they cook with, and while Errol King, the notorious bad boy chef with an attitude, can get anyone he wanted into his bed, he wanted this woman more than anything. Something about her sweet innocence and sad eyes reach into his harden heart, but is it enough for him to forget his past?

For age 18 and up. Contains language, scorching hot scenes (cooking and otherwise), a gorgeous alpha Master Chef who likes to dominate more than the kitchen, beautiful scenery, and foods you can't even pronounce.

Having traveled to over 25 countries, lived in the American South, in California, Las Vegas, and briefly in England; Kailin Gow feels blessed to be able to use her experiences and inspirations to bring characters and stories from the places she visit, to life.

From visiting Romania, she was asked to write stories about vampires; visiting the Black Forest in Germany and seeing the castles of Europe inspired her to write fantasy; visiting Asia's mystical mountains inspired her to write action adventure and mythological dystopians. From her experience in college as a peer counselor and her volunteer work with women's shelters, she was inspired to write contemporary romance with social issues for women, new adults, young adults, and teens. Having faced adversity, including battling stereotypes and bullying, Kailin Gow has become a well-known speaker and figure in media. Her adventurous bold spirit has taken her around the world, where she has ridden on top of elephants through jungles, hand-fed sting rays, studied kung fu from a Shaolin Temple monk, and learned cooking from a celebrity chef.

Compelled to write her first fiction book because of 9/11, Kailin Gow now has over 100 fiction books published with a handful of non-fiction books, has sold over a million books, and is now in the development phase of her most popular book series being turned into games and films (look up Kailin Gow on IMDB, and you will find which ones.)

She has over 20 Series, written under Kailin Gow:

    I devoured Devour Me! I haven't read many erotic stories becaus

    I devoured Devour Me! I haven't read many erotic stories because most of them are like watching Grade C, XXX rated movies. But Ms. Gow certainly has the dialogue and suspense-building scene writing down pat. There is definitely a good story here, not just eroticism, and the two together are explosive. Now I can't wait to read book 2 in this series. Wow! Taryn and Errol show their vulnerabilities and strengths in this moving story, culminating in a cliff-hanging ending that leaves the reader wanting MORE...and reaching for Book 2 to continue their saga. I can't help comparing this series to another famous one--50 Shades of Grey--that I just can't quit with the first book. I gotta see how this ends! Readers won't be disappointed with this roller coaster ride of a romance.

    3.5 out of 5 Stars; I love adult teacher/student relationships a

    3.5 out of 5 Stars; I love adult teacher/student relationships and this one involves a girl from New York City who has been accepted to study at a well-known culinary Institute in Paris with a chef, Errol King.

    Did I feel connected to the characters? I liked Taryn. First I thought she was a little naive to move in with Errol and immediately accept an assistant position the minute she met him. However, I grew to really like her character.

    Errol: In the beginning his cockiness was getting on my nerves. It was hard for me to connect with his relationship with Taryn. I was worried that in an instant he would want nothing to do with her. I still don’t know how I feel about their relationship. I don’t trust Errol. When he says he is not looking for a relationship, I worry that he really means it even with Taryn. I understand why she is a runner. I would be a runner too with Errol. I do not like him telling her that she wanted it like he wanted it. She is a sweet and innocent person unlike the other women he is used to so I was yelling at my Kindle at him to take it back!

    Pace of the story: Okay
    Positives: The cliffy was the type of cliffys I love in a romance stories so I am excited to start Savor Me.
    Negatives: The meeting between Errol and Taryn felt rushed. I mean everything was to insta for me. The minute that Taryn steps foot in Paris she runs into Errol. He helps her carry her bags to her new apartment only to find it a dump so he tells her she can move into his apartment. In exchange she is to help him with his cookbook. However, what I thought would be an insta-love, insta-everything, turned out to be something else. After all the initial “rush”, things slowed down.
    Do I recommend? I just finished a very dark read and I wanted something lite and fluff and this book fit that bill.
    Book Format Read: A copy was provided in exchange for an honest review.

    If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen! This is my first time reading anything from this author. I'm going to a book signing event this August and she will be there, so I thought I'd check her out. First thing I did was check out her website being unfamiliar with her and her work. I found she had written several books and actively supports and advocates social issues that effect young women and adults. I found that to be pretty cool. I saw this book listed as an upcoming release, so I pre-ordered right away. I spent a good portion of the day (and evening) yesterday reading it. I loved it!

    Errol, what can I say about Errol? He's sexy, HOT, and maybe a little twisted. He is a world renowned chef and instructor at the International Institute of Culinary Arts in Paris. Then there's Taryn, she is intelligent, strong willed, determined, and recently accepted as a student of the International Institute of Culinary Arts. She leaves New York to follow her dreams. She learns more from him than she originally bargained for, but finds she has plenty she can teach him as well.

    They both have influences from their pasts that have made them who they are and how they view relationships. Sparks fly almost immediately when they meet. Paris turns out to be more than she expected in so many ways. I CANNOT wait for the second book in this series (expected July 2013).

    I have also picked up The Protege by this author (which also looks and sounds really good). I figured if this was any indication to her previous work, I have a lot of catching up to do :)

    Needs serious editing

    I really tried to read the whole book, but after about 25% had to quit. The editing was lacking and detracted from the story. Add in the wide swing in character behavior and I was unable to get through the entire book, in spite of how short the story was. I'm disappointed since the description sounded intriguing.

    Could have been great

    I liked the story line possibilities but this book didn't deliver. The meeting was rushed, story wasn't fluid, and the editing was less than stellar. That being said, I almost always finish any book that I start and this will not be an exception. I have to know what happens next. Why must so many books these days be 3 parts instead of one nice, long book?

    Not impressed

    I am all for far fetched romances, but this was too much. Unlikely (more like impossible) and what was suppose to be erotic left me saying "yuck" and really?! (Molasses and early on bath...without attempting to spoil). At any rate, I consider myself a flaky hopeless romantic willing to be sucked into any happily ever after, steamy relationships, and a pension for dreaming...but this just didn't do it for me. Sorry for not a great review.
