Overview

Dr. Ivan Rusilko has got it bad. He’s in love—with life, his work, and his baby girl, Jaden Thorne. The nearly 3000 miles between Miami and L.A. that once threatened their happily-ever-after now seem nothing more than a mere geographical challenge—nothing a few hours on a plane and a sexy weekend rendezvous can’t trump. No time apart is too long to keep him from wanting her in his arms and in his bed. He’s absolutely sure Jaden is his dream come true.

Jaden Thorne is living the life she’s always wanted. She’s got her one-in-a-million job on a TV cooking show, she’s achieved celebrity chef status, and she’s in a committed relationship with her perfect guy… Then the network’s surprise decision to add a co-host to her show takes a bite out of her perfectly balanced life and career. With a new man in the mix, living the dream gets a whole lot more complicated both personally and professionally.

When the emotional, mental, and physical paths of true love’s course collide with frustration, secrets, and assumptions, will Ivan and Jaden pay the price? Does their dream-come-true cost something neither can afford?

The Winemaker’s Dinner: Entrée is a decadent meal of passion, sex, and secrets, inspired by the real romantic life of Dr. Ivan Rusilko. Authors Everly Drummond and Dr. Ivan Rusilko have turned up the heat in this emotional follow up to The Winemaker’s Dinner: Appetizers, expertly executing their unique recipe for blending fact and fantasy, with more than a dash of passion and sex.

    Entree ~ Breathtaking!!!

    I cheered when I began with the first page knowing i would be taken on a beautiful journey of LOVE. I laughed throughout and want to cry now that it is over and more so, Ivan and Jaden could be over forever. Thank you for once again taking your readers on the ride of our lives or should I say part of your real live Ivan. I dare ask when Desserts may be out (selfishly) but the writing is so gripping and every day real that you feel you are a part of the love story so intimately. Thank you seems so understated but for yet another day, you allowed your readers to be a part of your personal journey to find love, life and family. It is out there and I have no doubt you will make one very lucky woman a Princess to your Prince. Best of luck with your new practice and future endeavors. From one of your Baby Girl's.

    Pull up a chair and settle in... because you will not be able to

    Pull up a chair and settle in... because you will not be able to put this book down, you will need to devour it whole. Pour a glass of Velvet Glove and grab some exquisite chocolates, let those flavors explode on your palate. This course of The Winemakers Feast is truly a carnival for the senses and will have your emotions teetering on the edge... Entree is simply mouthwatering, a mouthful of pure decadent deliciousness. 




    Appetizers may have been the inspiration for the menu and it set the perfect impassioned ambiance, but HOLY HOTNESS this serving of the banquet got spicy and left me salivating in overdrive. Everly Drummond and Ivan Rusilko have found the perfect blend of eroticism and reality for this meal. Their combined writing styles blends these superb raw ingredients and expertly prepares and presents them in a way that will satisfy the deepest hunger. Their combined efforts has created yet another masterpiece.




    In this tsunami of emotions all the organic fixings are present. Plenty of passion, want, need, love, romance, trust, mistrust, insecurity, anger, angst, heady intoxication, and even the proverbial angel versus the devil of the conscious. All of this garnished with uncertainty. 




    I won't lie, the passion and sex was amazing. At times left me a bit tingly. ~Which OMG is not a bad thing~ 




    Ahhhh... But the pate foie gras??? The little green pills of course!!! I wonder just how many hits Google has sustained in looking these up? (So let me take this opportunity to insert an apology to all medical professionals at this time, I've a sneaking suspicion that if you've not already, you're about to experience an influx in female patients. Just saying... you may want to get your prescription pads ready!). 




    So I raise my glass to the fusion that Everly and the good Doctor have plated. It has flambeed me and left my heart palpitating. Christian WHO? After this delicacy, I can't even count to fifty let alone remember or think about another book!!!




    Hope may very well be a narcotic but in the end love is always worth the fall. Love is beautiful.




    This aphrodisiac has me frantically searching around for my waiter, because just like Veruca Salt, I want my dessert... and I WANT IT NOW!!! ~JH

    I read this book in a matter of hours. I just could not put it down. The story had me on an emotional roller coaster the entire time. Dr. Ivan and Everly did not disappoint. Dr. Ivan and Jaden are as Hot as ever, but struggle with the distance, desperately trying to keep their relationship going. As they both deal with the difficulty of a distance relationship they have the added stress of their booming careers. Dr. Ivan. always the romantic, devoted man that he is, continues to romance, Love, and seduce Jaden, even with their time together being so limited. Jaden being insecure lets doubt of Dr. Ivan's faithfulness creep in and lets someone else try to ruin all that she has worked do hard for, in her career and love life. That disappointed me, but that is also what makes the story so engrossing, you feel as if you are along for their emotional roller coaster ride.

    Having Dr. Ivan as the character in his book makes the book even better, I love that we have a face to go with the name. He is truly my new favorite Book Boyfriend! I mean he is Smart, Romantic, Loves his family, Sexy, Fun Loving, Giving, etc. I could go on for days. This is definitely on my list of books to read again and give as gifts. Now I really can't wait for dessert!

    Once again I am blown away by Dr. Ivan and Everly what a pair, would love to be a fly on the wall when they are working on these books. It is quite the Miracle!

    Wow! I'm still trying to recover and get my heart to calm down a

    Wow! I'm still trying to recover and get my heart to calm down after reading this! The second book in the Winemaker's Feast Series, "Entrée" did not disappoint. Dr. Ivan Rusilko and Everly Drummond did a fabulous job yet again. I'm not at all surprised, they work very well together!

    Ivan and Jaden are making their long distance relationship work by taking a vow to go no more than two weeks apart; they take turns traveling between Miami and LA, and some special trips in between. Ivan, as in the first book, is so romantic and just so perfect. He loves Jaden more than anything and has no doubt that he wants her as his wife. He constantly spoils her with flowers, chocolate, and romantic getaways whenever they are together. Jaden loves Ivan with all her heart. She feels at home with him. Ivan is her forever! But between a new arrogant, cocky, yet gorgeous co-host Damian, who will not take no for an answer, and Ivan's work getting his own medical practice up and running, things start to get shaken up. Can they survive? You'll have to read to find out, my lips are sealed!

    Dr. Ivan and Everly do an amazing job bringing you into this book, and it was written beautifully. I felt like I was really able to connect with the characters and go through their emotions right with them. And boy did I go through some emotions!! There was laughter and there were tears. I'm not going to lie, there were moments I wanted to jump in and punch some of the people out! As far as the sex....again, It was off the charts!!

    I really loved how real the dialogue was throughout the book. Some books you read the dialogue is so crazy there is no way that a real person would actually speak like that. Dr. Ivan and Everly keep it real! I give this book a 5 star rating and I am so looking forward to Dessert! Hopefully we won't have to wait too long!!

    Congrats to Dr. Ivan and Everly on another ahhhmazing story!

    Just when I thought that the first book was awesome, the second book was way beyond awesome!! I just totally LOVED every minute of it. I read into the wee hours of the morning with each of these books! The romance and the steaminess were spectacular!!! I hated for it to end. It surely left me craving more; craving DESSERT!!! : ) I recommend these books to everyone who enjoys a romantic, steamy, erotic story! You will not be disappointed.

    Oh my goodness!

    Wow...this was long in the waiting from my Appetizer...but let me tell you, my Entree was phenomenal! Everything was done perfectly.....the setting was romantic with just enough angst to set the mood....the music was awe inspiring....the food and wine delicious;) I cannot recommend "this restaurant" any higher:) you will not be disappointed with your meal, the hot romance, the disappointments that follow a long distance relationship, the make-up (or should I say catch-up) love scenes were indescribable! The good dr and Jaden have a lot to be thankful for, and yet, as is the norm, she makes her "mistakes" that keeps the reader on the edge of their seat, yelling at her for one reason or another! As I said, you won't be disappointed with your meal....I just recommend a glass (or maybe a bottle) of your favorite wine and plenty of time to savor every moment.....using Ivan's expression....Love is Beautiful....

    The writing team of Everly Drummond and Dr. Ivan Rusilko have do

    The writing team of Everly Drummond and Dr. Ivan Rusilko have done it again for readers – another FABULOUS read from The Winemaker’s Feast Series – “The Winemaker’s Dinner: Entrée”! They’ve taken the readers on an emotional roller coaster ride that has left me weak and in need of a place to sit down and regroup. Because of the gift Everly and Ivan have for drawing the reader in as though they are there, in the story, I once again found myself feeling like a voyeur watching Jaden and Ivan’s relationship as they work through the challenges of maintaining a long distance relationship. Sexual passion, tenderness, fun, love of family and uncertainty are just a few of the things you’ll experience with Jaden and Ivan. Every emotion I can experience was brought out as I read book two in the series and I was exhausted and left wanting much, much more. Thank you Everly and Ivan for yet another fantastic installment in The Winemaker’s Feast series – “Dessert” cannot be served soon enough!!
