Overview

A new contemporary romance series that's a sexy, modern twist on Seven Brides for Seven Brothers

Never, ever, mix business with pleasure...

Lia Mantovani has created one of the hottest restaurants on Chicago’s Magnificent Mile, but all that could disappear if she loses her lease with Kelly Properties. Having had her dreams ripped away from her before, she’ll do everything in her power to keep her restaurant. Her fate hangs on the whims of the frustratingly handsome Adam Kelly.

Adam has spent years trying to convince world famous chef Amadeus Schlittler to open a restaurant in Chicago, but he wants the prime location held by Lia. Business has always come first… until sparks fly when Adam meets her. When things get hot outside the kitchen, though, they’re both in danger of getting burned.

Warning: Contains a hero who always gets what he wants; a heroine who is just as deadly with gamberi as she is with a baseball bat; meddlesome, match-making mothers; and a Great Pyrenees with a penchant for sweeping the heroine off her feet.

**I was given a copy of this book by the author for an honest review** Lia Mantovani has created one of the hottest restaurants on Chicago’s Magnificent Mile, but all that could disappear if she loses her lease with Kelly Properties. Having had her dreams ripped away from her before, she’ll do everything in her power to keep her restaurant. Her fate hangs on the whims of the frustratingly handsome Adam Kelly. Adam has spent years trying to convince world famous chef Amadeus Schlittler to open a restaurant in Chicago, but he wants the prime location held by Lia. Business has always come first… until sparks fly when Adam meets her. When things get hot outside the kitchen, though, they’re both in danger of getting burned. I really liked this book. It reminded me of an updated harilquen story. The characters were normal everyday people. The situation was believable and possible. The heroine and hero were likable people that remain true to character throughout the story. I loved that Adam didn't just drop the idea, but tried to make it work for everyone involved. It didn't work but was more believable for the trying. I found the story easy to read, and at the end of the book I was smiling

I enjoyed this book enough that I want to read the other brothers books. It is a stwnd alone but you will like it enough to read others, I think. A quick read without being a short story.

The Sweetest Seduction by Crista McHugh is the first book in her new series, The Kelley Brothers, which is a very sexy contemporary romance, using a modern day version of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers theme. However, make no mistake, other then seven brides, seven brothers, there is nothing remotely similar in this story. For one thing, the original brothers were tame, and in The Sweetest Seduction, if using the first book as an example, these brothers are totally hot, the romance is very steamy, and the storyline is damn good too. Lia, who is the chef/owner of a new successful restaurant in a prime location in Chicago, is our heroine in this book. She meets Adam Kelley when her mother auctions off a dinner at the Kelley’s house, which turns out to be a perfect match making opportunity engineered by both Lia’s mother and Adam’s mother. Adam immediately finds himself attracted to the beautiful Lia, who wants to finish the dinner, and go home to her restaurant. Nothing is ever easy in romance, as Adam is in negotiations to bring in a famous restaurateur, and unbeknownst to him, the property he is offering is where Lia’s restaurant is being sub leased. When Adam realizes his predicament, and having fallen hard for Lia, not to mention her place has become the hottest restaurant in Chicago, he must find a way to fix things. What follows is a fun and very erotic story of two people, both workaholics, who love what they do; with both falling totally in love with one another. The sexual chemistry between Lia and Adam was sizzling, with Adam always finding different places for them to act on their lust. But with the many issues facing them; the lease issue, a possible lawsuit, a previous bad relationship; the question always remains until the very end, if they will be able to get past this. The Sweetest Seduction was a fun, romantic and steamy story. I really enjoyed Lia and Adam together, loved the restaurant theme, and the many different foods on display. Crista McHugh has a wonderful writing style, and I cannot wait to meet the rest of the Kelley Brothers.
