Not only is she caring for her beloved grandmother, she's also working desperately to secure a bank loan for her fledgling gourmet catering service. The last thing she has time for is romance—not even with Christopher Bishop, the sexy financial whiz who's been evaluating her business.

After eight years of toiling to put his younger siblings through school, Chris is ready to lead the life of a carefree bachelor. Then he meets Melanie, and finds himself thinking about forever. Melanie insists she's too smart to fall for a man with the devilish good looks of a practiced playboy, but Chris is determined to show her that their passion is too powerful to deny—and that love is the sweetest thing of all.

    This light, funny, sweet contemporary romance is just the thing

    This light, funny, sweet contemporary romance is just the thing when you want to escape.  Filled with one hilarious calamity after another you only stop laughing long enough to sigh at the sweet romance.  Take an accident prone cook add in a sweet smoking hot accountant (now there is a phrase I never thought I’d write) mix well add a dash of an eccentric Nana and you get Kiss the Cook.

    Something's always cooking with Mel and Christopher.

    Jacquie D'Alessandro's hilarious tale of Melanie Gibson and Christopher Bishop's begins with a series of mishaps and initiates a wacky courtship, in which one article of clothing is ruined in each encounter! This 4 ½ story works on so many levels. Melanie and Chris are believable, multidimensional characters. Melanie's spry, wisecracking Nana and Chris' matchmaking mama add humorous color to the tale, which snaps along at a breakneck pace. And humorous and dramatic moments are handled equally well. Bon appetit!

    I laughed till I cried....

    I laughed (a lot), I cried and I enjoyed. This is a light, fast romp of a story. From the first chapter where Murphy's Law takes over to the HEA the characters touch the emotions. Mel Gibson's hormones literally talk/sing to her and are a pip. I even enjoyed the fact that the hero, Chris, was an accountant. A nice change from the usual hero image. The dialogue was a hoot. Sample (no spoilers): 'Don't worry. You're in good hands. We'll have a lot of fun.' She eyed him with clear suspicion. 'Define fun.' He laughed. 'Trust me on this.' I don't know about you, but I'd have been running in the other direction. Mel is braver than I. Nana, Mel's grandma, is a card. She says whatever she wants, whenever she wants. It only adds to the humor. She is, also, people smart. She helps when emotions are out of control and manages to make the most profound statements seem obvious. I really enjoyed her. If you're looking for a laugh, characters that have values shining through, and a fast, fun read, go out and get 'Kiss the Cook'. You won't regret it, I don't. It's firmly on my keeper shelf. Ok, Jacquie, when do we get the next one?
