Overview

Logan Blaise expected to be taking a quick break from his successful vineyard in Napa to visit his hometown of Brooklyn. But what he finds is a complete mess: His father is sicker than he'd imagined and Logan is responsible for keeping the family restaurant running smoothly. When the chef quits, he's forced to hire the first person who applies for the job—Skye Maxwell, a beautiful enigma with great skills and gaps in her résumé.

Skye is determined to make it on her own, without trading on her famous family name. Working in the community of Red Hook offers the perfect opportunity to stay out of the limelight while pursuing her dreams. At first glance, charismatic Logan seems exactly like all the shallow men she knew back home. But as she notices his small-town roots and strong family ties, the Brooklyn bad boy and his restaurant start to feel exactly like where she really belongs . . .

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Kaye's second Bad Boys of Red Hook contemporary (after Back to You) pairs sexy vintner Logan Blaise and chef Skye Maxwell in an unappealing, coincidence-laden story. Logan returns to his Brooklyn roots to find his adoptive father quite ill and unable to run his restaurant, the Crow's Nest. Logan must fill in as manager until Pop gets back on his feet. When the chef suddenly decamps for a family emergency, Logan is left adrift for the next dinner rush. Skye, who is fleeing a family restaurant legacy as she strives to make it on her own merits rather than her famous family name, just happens to be wandering the somewhat disreputable Red Hook neighborhood and stumbles across the "help wanted" sign. The usual passions stir, and awkward subplots waylay the couple. Wooden dialogue and a few too many deus ex machina moves create a skeptical distance. Agent: Kevan Lyon, Marsal Lyon Literary Agency. (June)
Kirkus Reviews
Logan Blaise comes home to Red Hook, Brooklyn, to keep an eye on his sick father and the family restaurant and ends up falling in love with the talented but secretive chef he hires. This is the second installment of Kaye's Red Hook trilogy (Back to You, 2012). Logan's life is easygoing and uncomplicated. He runs a San Francisco vineyard; he's engaged to the owner's daughter; and no one makes any emotional demands on him. But when he comes back to Red Hook to keep the family restaurant going while his brother Storm is on his honeymoon, things get complicated. The chef quits with no notice, and at first, Logan considers it a miracle that Skye, an amazing replacement, walks in off the street as soon as he posts the sign. Unfortunately, she's beautiful, full of secrets and the first woman ever to make him believe he's capable of falling in love. Forced by his attraction and newly discovered emotions to break it off with his fiancee, Logan then has to convince Skye that he's worth the risk while trying to figure out what she's hiding. Turns out she's from San Francisco, too, from a veritable restaurant dynasty, determined to make it in her own restaurant kitchen, on her own merits and away from her paternalistic family. Navigating meddling friends, angry families and a skittish Skye, Logan must gain her trust in spite of obstacles in his path. Good thing he's discovered his heart; Skye's the one he's determined to give it to. While the book's concept is strong, and there are plenty of romance fans who will enjoy the sparks flying and the sexy attraction between Skye and Logan, there are too many missed opportunities to show growing trust and emotional connection. Also, the condescending tone of the female characters continually putting up with the idiotic antics of their male counterparts grows thin. An adequate effort for the right romance audience but a step down from Back To You.
