I love the premise behind this book, the young culinary school student and the sexy millionaire meeting over catering. The discussions of food were fun and mouth-watering. The jealous, fancy “upper crust” women who looked down on the lowly chef were pure evil. I liked the conflict but I kept wanting to give the hero and the heroine a thump in the head to make them get together faster. The tension in the book and the charm of the leads kept me turning the pages and looking forward to stealing time away from my own writing so I could finish this story!
Reviewed by Molly Review originally posted on Romancing the Book Book provided by the publisher for review Carol Preflatish is a new to me author and one that certainly has caught my attention with this book! I love a good romance, one that has characters that jump off the page, a plot that will hold my attention through out the story and an ending that will leave you wanting more. Ms. Preflatish’s book has all that and so much more! From start to finish, I was completely engrossed, and cheering for some pretty amazing characters! Derek’s character was charming. I loved him from the start. He was sweet, handsome and witty. The realness of his character was amazing and so many times through out the story I felt like I was right next to him, wanting to cook for him and help him out! For an author to create a character like that, that’s awesome and definitely what I look for in a well written novel! Jenny’s character was also well created. She really popped through the story and I felt my self cheering her on more than once when it came to her career and her romance. She was super sweet and lively. I was definitely taken with her character. Ellen, Derek’s sister, and Colleen, Derek’s new manager, really left a lot to be desired…..I wasn’t impressed with either of them. But, despite that, it didn’t take away from the story at all. They were playing their part in the story, and that’s what keeps me from disliking it. Definitely well created “villainous” characters! All in all, this story is a lovely one, and one that I would recommend to everyone. It’s got laughs, twists, and romance. What more could you want in a story? If you are looking for a new read by a talented author, I highly recommend KITCHEN AFFAIR. It’s deliciously romantic and heart capturing, for sure! Well done, Ms. Preflatish!
