Chef Reese Dunbar's ambition to hit the big time is fried when she walks out on a conniving boss and gets blacklisted from every decent restaurant in New York. Compelled to find a new way to reach her goal, she takes a menial job with a struggling cooking show and immediately clashes with its manipulative executive producer. Sensing a threat, producer Leonie will do anything to hang on to her star, who also happens to be the nephew she raised — a sexy charmer with a craving for Reese.
Actor Nick Coltrane agreed to host his aunt's cooking show just long enough for it to get on its feet. It's long past time for him to get back to the stage, before Broadway and Hollywood forget him and someone discovers his secret: The star of And He Cooks Too can't cook. He knows hiring a real chef who can sniff out the truth might be dangerous, but Reese could also be his ticket off the show — and, he discovers, so much more.
Forced to work together, Reese and Nick are hot in front of the camera and hotter behind closed doors. She can't understand why he won't cut the apron strings. He questions why she's so driven. Will their secrets and ambitions burn them both before they realize that together, they might just have the perfect recipe for love?
