Overview

From the New York Times bestselling author whose torrid tales are "legendary" (Robin Shone) comes another steamy story-set in the kitchen.

World-renowned chef Jake Chambers could have had any ing-nue he wanted in California since the kitchen isn't the only room in the house where the hard-bodied hunk has special talents. Still, when he realized there might be more to life than glitz and silicone, he left for Minneapolis to buy a local joint and try to clear his head.

But even though he's no longer serving the glitterati, that doesn't mean he's about to compromise quality and serve a Minnesota wine. However, local vintner Liv Bell-with curves even more delicious than his tapas-has other plans once she lays eyes on this Adonis. Determined to promote her vineyard's juicy bounty, this sun-kissed goddess might just bring Jake around to at least tasting what she has to offer.

This one's a page turner from the very start. No matter what mood you're in this book will get your blood flowing. It's upbeat, exciting and romantic. The characters are funny and bring you right into their world. I enjoy books that put you right in the middle of the action. This book has action and grabs you from the very first page. It's funny, sexy and most definitely a good read. This is one to keep in your library to pick up when you need a pick me up. And if you need ideas on how to get things going, well get out you pen and paper cause it gives quite a lesson in making things fun, sexy and exciting in the bedroom or anywhere else you might wnat to try.

I was looking forward to reading this book. The characters are not very well developed. The storyline held promise but that was not realized. Contrived conflicts and sexual scenarios in addition to some really bad prose and a few spelling mistakes made for a disappointing read and dislikeable characters. There was a lot of sex in it but it was neither sexy nor erotic.

Successful west coast chef Jake Chambers needs a breather from the hectic Southern California cuisine scene so he buys Chaz Burnett¿s Minnesota restaurant with plans of bringing a class establishment to an area where he spent summers visiting his aunt. He decides to give himself six months for this labor of love. Olivia ¿Liz¿ Bell quit modeling once she had enough money to live her life in comfort and to open up a local Minnesota winery. When she comes to deliver an order to Chaz, she meets Jake instead. They immediately are attracted to one another, which surprises both of them. Jake asks to stay for dinner and talk, but quickly realizes he cannot stop himself from kissing her. They rush upstairs to the apartment above the restaurant where they make love all night. Soap opera star Janie Tabor calls Liz to tell her she is coming from New York with her three years old son Matt as her wealthy husband Leo Rolf plans to file for divorce to include custody of their offspring. Jake used to live with Janie until she abruptly left for the soaps in New York. Leo orders private investigator Roman Novak to bring back his son. As Liz and Jake fall in love, she learns he looks down at her wine. --- This entertaining romantic suspense will have readers believe falling in lust at first sight by the likable lead couple is normal as the sex is well handled (no pun intended) and only graphically described whereas Roman and Janie have their trysts off-page. Although suspense is unneeded as the lead pair only become involved because they mutually know Janie and the focus of the danger and their relationship would have gone down the same course regardless, fans will toast Susan Johnson with wine served with tarts and sex. --- Harriet Klausner
