Review posted on Books on Silver Wings blog.
Andrew runs a restaurant, The Saucy Minx, and Jack is the chef who specializes in magicked dishes. Ten years ago, Andrew and
Jack cast a spell to find their soul mates but haven't found them yet. They hired a new dessert specialist, Nick, who can revitalize
food to their freshness. Nick's boyfriend, Richard, brings his friends, Grant and Chris, from overseas. At first glance, Grant is meant to
be with Andrew and Chris is Jack's soul mate, but Grant and Chris are dating each other. Andrew and Jack are crashed but all hope is
not lost for them.
It is difficult for me to focus on the main couple (Jack and Chris) when there's a total of three in this story. In general, I think the pace is
too fast. I don't have enough time to develop a connection to each main character and fully digest what struggles they went through.
There's not enough back story for the main characters for them to be fully developed and to leave a deeper impression. The romance
is very much love at first sight.
Having said that, the romance part of the story is very cute. I love the interesting idea of modern witches using magic in food. It's a way
to continue their practice, be subtle, avoid detection, and charge people thousands for a "special dish." I especially love the food
descriptions (although there weren't many) and the use of a little magic to make the meals one-of-a-kind. Yummy.
Overall, this is a very cute story that leaves a fluffy feeling afterwards. I would recommend this for paranormal fans that want a fluff story.
