Overview

She’s a small town caterer, he’s a big city chef, but they don’t need a kitchen to make things sizzle...

Erin McDonald likes her simple life in her small town: no drama, no fuss, no uncertainty...until Jesse Hackett breezes back into town. Erin never quite got over how he left for the bright lights of the big city, and took her heart with him.

Jesse never regretted his decision to leave small town life behind and chase his big city dreams, but he’s always regretted leaving Erin behind. No woman has ever compared, and once he convinces Erin to let him touch her again, he’s never going to let her go.

Sparks fly and fires are rekindled, but the basic divide still remains: what really matters in life — location or love?

    A romantic, funny and modern romance with a lot of sugar and spice.

    Ravenous is the sweet, romantic story of Erin and Jesse. Young love can be a beautiful thing, but in their case, adulthood brought around some tough decisions. Erin thought their love would continue to thrive in their small home town of Holbrook, but Jesse wanted more - a better life and more opportunities. When Jesse left for Sydney, Erin remained behind, heartbroken. Eight years later, Jesse is back for a family party his mother is throwing, and Erin has been asked to do the catering. The sparks between them never faded despite the heartache, and staying away may be impossible once they get a taste of what they could have. But the obstacles that once separated them still remain.

    Erin and Jesse were such a sweet couple, and I easily fell in love with them and empathized with them. I understood why neither of them wanted to give in even if it meant being able to be together. I definitely got the feeling that Jesse was more confident in himself and what he wanted, whereas Erin decided to stay behind more out of obligation and because it was comfortable and safe.

    I loved the plot because it was engaging and it dealt with a believable, modern day relationship and the problems that some couples have to overcome. What is more important? Ones roots, familiarity, love or a career? What is worth the risk and what isn't? There were times I wanted to grab Erin by the shoulders and shake some sense into her, but her reactions and feelings were paced to the story, and the author did a great job of making her character go through the motions on her own. Jesse. What can I say about Jesse? Other than I want him in his chef's uniform, tied to my bed. He was HOT! Though I'm not sure why he waited eight years to try again, I think it was important for the story to have Jesse in a successful place in life, and it allowed Erin to come to terms with her own feelings or have others point out her stubbornness which eventually leads to my favorite part of the story which was the ending. So good!

    If you want a feel good romance with a bit of sugar and a nice dose of spice, this novella is for you! Grab it, gobble it up, and it will leave you feeling satisfied. I've had two helpings already and there's room for more. (Okay, so I meant that I have read this twice).

    Rating 4.5 rounded up to 5 Lip Bites

    Eden Summers knows how to write some steamy, sexy books.  This was yet another scorcher, but this time it was a quick read that just makes me want more.

    With that being said, I highly recommend reading this book before the summer ends because it is a perfect book for a day at the beach or a day out anywhere you can relax without anyone bugging you.  Thank goodness, I was able to finish it without any interruptions otherwise the husband and the kids would have gotten snapped at.

    Ravenous is about a small two caterer, Erin McDonald, who is about to see the love of her life walk back into her life after eight years of not seeing him.  She's not very happy to see him because she knows once she sees him, the love they had for each other, will just come out of hiding. Jesse  is irresistible though and she can remember the first time she lost herself to him.  He is in town for his mother's party and his mother wants Erin as her caterer.  Erin is not going to be able to turn down Jesse's Mom, but she will do anything to avoid Jesse.  Unfortunately, it is kind of hard when Jesse is always there trying to get her attention.

    Eden did a fabulous job again with writing an adult romance story that makes the reader fall for the characters.  There were times though I wanted to beat both of them though due to their stubbornness.  Mostly, Erin was the target of that anger due to her not wanting to listen to Jesse.  Grrr!  I think I liked Karen, Erin's sister, better than Erin at times.  She definitely knocked some sense into her sister a few times.

    The sexual tension between Erin and Jesse definitely was there a lot in this book and when they did hook up...Wowza!! I was constantly fanning myself to cool down.  Jesse's Mom even got to witness some of the first heating moments before it got further on with Erin and Jesse.  Poor Erin and Jesse..LOL

    I give this book 4 full moons and recommend it to readers who read contemporary romance and love books that are short and steamy.

    I received a complimentary copy of the book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
