Overview

Wherever they travel, there's an aphrodisiac waiting to whet their appetites. . .

Brazil. . .Hawaii. . .India. . ..As a food writer, Maeve has just been handed the hottest opportunity of her career. She's being sent on an international research tour for an aphrodisiac cookbook. The downside is that she has to travel with rock star photographer and womanizer Jackson Dodds. And the upside is that she has to travel with Jackson Dodds. Because once they meet, Maeve understands why he's been named "America's Most Eligible Bachelor"--and despite her best intentions, all she can think about is putting their arousing recipes to the test. . .

Sexy and talented, Jackson can have any woman he desires. But lately, the thrill is gone--until he lays eyes on Maeve, who exudes sensuality like no one else. She's determined to keep things professional, but he knows the attraction is mutual. And as they travel the world, sampling warming saffron, juicy papaya, silky avocado, rare herbs and teas--and a mushroom whose very aroma sends women to heights of ecstasy--both discover a hunger they've never known, and don't want to resist, even amid unexpected danger. . .

    Hot, hot, hot!!!  What could be better than the combination of food and sex?  Liz Everly's detailed descriptions of both left me
    wanting more of each!  The chemistry between Maeve and Jackson was great, the sexual tension and tease was well done.
    I really enjoyed the writing style and never found myself bored.  I look forward to reading more from this author in the future.

    I loved this book! I related to Maeve on so many levels. She is a complex, modern woman, and Jackson is an interesting guy. I may have a bit of a crush on him. In fact, I enjoyed the chemistry and the love scenes. If you're looking for travel, food, and romance, this is the book for you!

    There's something about a book that draws your eye - the cover, the blurb or both, as was my case. So off I went to enjoy a book that promised exotic food and places, sizzling chemistry and a little mystery. And I tried, I really did try to love the book, but it felt flat to me at the 40% mark and it was downhill from there. Although the story shifted constantly from Maeve's point of view to that of Jackson then to the third person, I decided to overlook it and focused instead on the characters, their story and their connection.

    And here is where it got complicated for me.

    The Characters: Try as I might I could not connect to Maeve. Although I liked that she was a strong female lead, to me she came across as selfish and cold. And at times where I got see some depth to her, the story changed and the moment was lost. I gave up on her when she continued to lead Jackson on, especially when she went ahead and left him alone when he was injured. Now Jackson I liked a little bit more. He came across as a very passionate man, sure of himself. He did care about Maeve in his own way, but sometimes he was a bit too soft. For a well traveled bachelor, he sure was lacking common sense and became too clingy too fast.

    The Chemistry: With all this talk of aphrodisiacs and arousing dishes, these two were kind of vanilla on the page. I was expecting the sizzling-hot chemistry, the lustful moments, the sighs and the moans to be more than what they were. But nope, it didn't even reach the simmering level in my passion meter. They were plain and short.

    The Mystery: There was a moment for me when I lost the direction of the story. There were some events that I felt were unnecessary because they added nothing to the story and then there were those that were important to the story but were not developed properly. It was confusing and at times I found myself walking away from my tablet. I still don't understand the reasoning behind the killings. Maybe it's just me, but it was all happening so fast and not properly explained that I just didn't understand.

    I encourage you to read it and come to your own conclusion, because I'm fairly sure that this just wasn't a book fit for me. I found Saffron Nights to be an okay read. I liked the concept behind the story, the different places visited and Chef Paul and his little book.

    I received this title from Kensington Books through NetGalley in exchange of my honest opinion.

    Who doesn't love a romance with amazing aphrodisiacs and exotic

    Who doesn't love a romance with amazing aphrodisiacs and exotic locations? Maeve is hot enough to turn me a little gay and Jackson is hotty-patotty.  Oh my god the part where Maeve gets some peircings -- whoa, that was hot too.  Everly manages to get things steamy without even trying. The plot has a break neck speed to it, and it's kind of like riding a motorcycle, you really feel the twists and turns as a reader.

    Review:

    "Saffron Nights" By Liz Everly was a interesting contemporary romance and some mystery read that flowed along quickly giving us a good read with a happy ending. The exotic food, add some hot chemistry and some mystery and you have this read all tied up. The two characters Maeve and Jackson were very interesting. I will leave it at that...well I will say that Maeve seemed somewhat selfish and Jackson at times too soft at times. Now, this is where I will say you must pick up the read to see what you think. At one time I was somewhat confused with this mystery of it all and if I had the time I would reread but I will leave that up to you to read and see what you think. Now, I do think that this was still well written I do think the chemistry and the love scenes were great. Would I recommend this read...YES...I definitely think it is worth checking out.
