Having been raised in Paris and deciding that waitressing in Bensonhurst at her half-sister's bistro Vivi's is too provincial and keeping her from her dream to manage a top quality Manhattan restaurant, Natalie Bocuse quits her job. However, she finds it nearly impossible to obtain new work so with the help of her most persistent flirty customer Quinn O'Brien she accepts a waitress job at their Midtown family pub.------------ New York reporter Quinn has wanted Natalie since he first flirted with her in Brooklyn, but she showed no reciprocity as she sees him as an uncouth hunk. However, as Natalie dates his boss, Quinn needs to prove to her he is a man about the town even if he will earn an Oscar taking her to ballet or opera.-------------- Deirdre Martin provides a fun contemporary restaurant romance that through the secondary characters is a direct tie to the wonderful JUST A TASTE. The story line is lighthearted and amusing as Natalie, unlike Vivi who gave up her taste of Paris for Brooklyn, feels in exile amidst the barbarians. Fans will enjoy Quinn's efforts with the support of both their families to win the heart of the sophisticated snob he loves.------------ Harriet Klausner

I'm sure the first book in the series was excellent, but as with most series it just lost steam. Very predictable and very forgettable. Perhaps it was just to close to real life blahs to make it a worthwhile read. On the other hand, I did finish it.

I love romance novels but this was horrible! I can't believe people actually liked it! The lead characters were boring and their supposed 'chemistry' was not well conveyed. From the moment you meet Natalie you never have a reason to like her! Quinn is somewhat likeable but mostly a tool! I couldn't finish it and I feel sorry for anyone who did. I really expected more from an author with such good reviews.

I thought the character of Natalie was shallow and hypocrite. The plot was slow moving and hard for me to keep reading. I did quit at one point to read another book instead. The book isn't really worth it to read, sorry
