A Delectable Novel
Simon Ford's success is hard-won. He grew up in Napa and resents the rich people who have moved into the valley, changing the culture by opening boutique wineries and pricing the locals out of the market.
Austin Kelvin runs an award-winning winery his father started after making a fortune on Wall Street. He lives the posh lifestyle Simon resents but secretly longs to attain. However, Austin's world isn't as luxurious and privileged as it seems: he didn't inherit his father's business savvy, and his winery is going under.
When Simon's boss sends him to covertly scope out Kelvin Cellars for a possible takeover bid, Simon sees it as a step toward attaining his financial dreams. Until he falls hard for Austin. The feeling is mutual, but when Austin learns the real reason for Simon's initial interest, he suspects Simon's seduction is merely a means to procure the winery at a bargain price. If there's any hope of winning Austin's heart, Simon will have to risk it all to prove Austin is more than just an intoxicating crush.

I’ve really enjoyed Lynley’s books. I’ve read three so far. Crush was enjoyable. There were a few times unnecessary plot twists were hinted at and then never addressed, which left you feeling kind of lost. Those twists if developed more could have added a lot more depth to the story. Again, it was worth the time to read.
Another great book by this EM Lynley with characters which pull you into the story and make you like them. This series also features some great recipes
