NUMBER OF HEARTS: 4 1/2 REVIEW:   Yoga on a paddleboard....Check A set of wet clothes......Check  Tater Tots in the oven........Check  This was such a fun, shorty, dirty and wet story.   I just love the whole idea behind this story.   I think just about every girl on the planet will be able to relate to Cami.  And just about every girl in the world would like to have a man like Paul.   If you are looking for a quick that will leave you satisfied you need to grab a copy of Eat, Play, Lust. Disclaimer:  I received a complimentary copy of the book from NetGalley & Entangled Publishing, LLC in exchange for an honest review.  This review is my own opinion and not a paid review.

Eat Play Lust is exactly what I expected. It is light and flirty. This is what could definitely be a weekend read. The characters weren't complex, but they were easily relatable. Cami, the main character is a yoga trainer with unresolved weight issues.  Her mother is a health-nut, who judges those who indulge in junk food harshly. This leaves Cami confused about food and herself.   Paul is a professional chef who is a little on the dorky side. He doesn't know when to stop talking.  He fumbles a bit and always makes the conversation a little bit awkward.   “I know it’s rude to ask an attractive woman her age. Or any woman, regardless of whether she’s attractive. I mean, obviously, a woman’s value isn’t determined by her level of attractiveness.” I suffer from "Blabbermouth Syndrome" so I can understand why he didn't stop talking there. “Not that I’m implying you aren’t attractive. Obviously you’re knock-down, drop-dead, leave ‘em howling gorgeous". I am sure he would have kept going if Cami didn't interrupt him.   The characters are universally relatable, and fun to read. I say if you have a few extra hours on your hands and you are looking for a light-hearted funny read, this is right up your alley.

50 pages, yes, only 50 pages for real. This should be part of a book of short stories if anything. Glad it was free. I was unimpressed with either of the characters, the whole food thing was annoying ALL of it! The way it was portrayed wasn't realistic to me at all. The whole thing with the beard...yuck! It was a short story, no conflict, no plot, I was bored.

This is one of the most entertaining books I've read in a long time. Don't get me wrong, I've read a lot of really good books lately, but this one, well, it entertained me, made me laugh, root for the H/h, fan myself, laugh...oh, I said that already? Well, I did. The story was so well written, it pulled me in and held me there to the last screen. Yes, it was a real screen flipper :D  I loved Paul. Who wouldn't love a man who not only cooked you a gourmet meal, but made a point of including your secret food obsession--tater tots!! As a fellow tater tot lover, my mouth watered right along with Cami's...well, okay, for more than just the tots. Cami is my hero. Never did I think I'd find another woman who could make a meal out of tater tots alone, and she has it down to a science. 18 minutes. Who knew? Now, brownies? In a 10 inch round pan, 28 minutes at 350*--perfection <3 Bottom line, guys, don't miss out on an awesome read. This is my first book by Ms. Fenske, but it certainly won't be my last. Thank you, Ms. Fenske, for a delightfully entertaining read.

I loved this book. It was great. It also dowloaded fast which is always a plus. The one thing that i didnt like very much was that is was only 57 pages. I think it was this one that was 57 pages. There was two different copies on my screen. I totally recomend reading this!

Reviewed by Kim for Read Your Writes Book Reviews This book should come with a warning that says to not read while hungry. Or reading this book will make you wish for your own personal chef to make all of the food mentioned. Paul Hammond moved to Bend six months ago to be the head chef at a restaurant called Merenwall. Cami Pressman is a yoga instructor and health nut. Cami has a SERIOUS guilty pleasure obsession with tater tots. I’m talking five bags in her freezer is low obsession. But this is a secret obsession no one knows about. Paul is a student in Cami’s yoga class but finally decides that he wants some one-on-one time with her. For Cami’s part, she always notices Paul who’s in the back of her class. Paul is a funny, charming, likeable guy who has a tendency to put his foot in his mouth. When Paul accidentlly discovers Cami’s secret, he makes it his mission to let her know that it’s okay. And what transpires is nothing short of foodgasm nirvana. There’s nothing like having your own personal chef who can introduce you to the pleasures of food both inside and outside of the bedroom. Source: Publisher

A story of a yoga teacher with a unhealthy past and a chef with a unique way of cooking "junk" food...these two have been secretly been crushing on each other for months but when Paul signs up for one of Cami's private yoga lessons everything changes. Can they handle the changes or will Paul's love to cook cause Cami to fall back into her old unhealthy eating habits?

This one was cute, sexy, and laugh out loud funny. I think my stomach grumbled just about the entire time I was reading this book. I want some tater tots and gourmet junk food so bad I can't hardly stand it. I read it in one setting and I think I had a perma smile the entire time! I was in stitches over Cami trying to keep Paul from finding out about the tater tots! *copy provided via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. -Tammy-

Eat, Play, Lust is a fast, quirky read that is full of sweet romance, a junk food obsession, and Stand-Up Paddle Yoga. Cami and Paul are just a match made in heaven. She likes to eat and he likes to cook! The sensual scenes that involve food in this story are not to be missed! Let’s just say that you may never look at certain food in the same light anymore! This is a quick read with engaging characters that will have you wishing and hoping for longer story with the two fun characters! I was given a copy of this story in exchange for an honest review.

As per the line, this was a super-quick read, and I actually didn’t have a problem with it. Both Paul and Cami came across as fully developed. The one thing I thought was waaay over done was how sensitive Cami was about her appearance. Let’s face it, I’m a big girl, and I will one day not be such a big girl. I fail to see why she’s so humiliated because Paul notices a picture and thinks it’s her sister. Her face will have changed a whole lot if she got a lot of weight off.  But that’s my three cents worth. Cami has a passion for junk food which she has managed to mostly overcome save for the occasional binge of tater tots. That’s totally to be respected, especially since she’s into yoga and being physically fit now. Paul is a chef, and I adore the way he found a way through to Cami, using her junk-food cravings. Just goes to show you can’t judge a tater tot by its packaging, or something along those lines. There was some hot and heavy lovin’, but it didn’t come on too fast or too soon. I’m glad things worked out for these two and I haven’t read anything else by Ms. Feske, but that will change, I’m sure. Book provided by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Being so short, it pretty much gets straight to the point. Boy likes girl. Girl likes boy. After some bumbling around, boy and girl get together … but the bumbling is very delicious. If you need a great way to wrap up your summer night, grab a glass of wine and sit back – Eat Play Lust is that perfect little tidbit to finish out your day.

**Review Copy Provided By Publisher** Sometimes after reading lots of longer books, you need a shortie to clean the palate (for lack of a better phrase). And Eat, Play, Lust did just that. I can safely say that after reading it, I might not look at Tater Tots the same way again in the future. I never pegged them as a potential aphrodisiac, but man, that was one hot scene...lol! and I loved the use of SUP Yoga (Stand-Up Paddle Yoga) to move the story along. It was quick funny, in that, an online friend of mine had just been talking about trying it out and now I'm kind of interested (especially if there might be a hot guy involved for me ;) ) The story itself was short, only about 55 pages, and so I was able to read it rather quickly (all of it while waiting for a prescription to be filled at the pharmacy), but for such a short book it really packed a punch. I would love to see a long book between Cami and Paul, or even with them as secondary characters. In fact, I would probably even buy this book over if it were revised/expanded to tell a longer story (can that be registered as a request please...)1

A few years back, I discovered a fantastically funny romantic comedy called Making Waves by a woman named Tawna Fenske. It kept me up that night while I finished it, and it reminded me that "light, romantic, beach read" means good things. Since then I've been a huge fan, so when I heard Tawna had a book coming out, and that I might finish it before one am, I was all over it. The read was fast (this is a short one, which was perfect for my mood), and it was just as sexy, fun, and grin-inducing as I hoped for. Cami has so much depth and I really was drawn to her, and Paul.. He's not just heating things up in the kitchen, that's all I'm saying. This was a fantastic short, the food references were brilliant (and mouth watering) and the laughs and 'aww's' were fantastic. My only complaint is, now I have to wait *again* for the next Tawna Fenske novel. But it'll be worth it, it always is ^_^

An absolutely delightful novella from Tawna Fenske. Be prepared to smile and giggle your way through this short story. Plenty of double entendres to keep you entertained from start to finish. Cami, a yoga instructor with a body image problem, thanks to her uber health nut mother, meets sexy gourmet chef Paul when he signs up for a private paddleboard yoga class, though they’ve been secretly crushing on each other for about two months. Paul keeps putting his foot in his mouth whenever he talks to Cami, which makes him absolutely adorable! Cami’s food issues come into play, though in a good way, when Paul decides to show Cami that it’s okay to crave delicious, calorie packed food, and perhaps indulge those cravings and maybe a few others! Lots of sexy, fun dialogue for your enjoyment! If you are looking for a quick, saucy read, this novella, with only 45 pages, is definitely for you!

A woman with body image issues, a tyrannical health food nut for a mother, a tater tot obsession and a crush on gourmet chef. Sounds like a match made in hell. However, Paul may be able to teach Cami a few important things about food and love. Cami Pressman has had to deal with body image issues ever since she came home from her first year at college with the dreaded “freshman fifteen” plus a little extra. It happens, right? Mother dearest didn’t agree, and promptly pointed out her short-comings, going so far as to take a “fat picture” of Cami next to her fridge as a preventative measure, along with some health nut recipes she wanted her daughter to follow religiously. Cami threw herself into working out like a crazy person. Now she’s fit as a fiddle, toned and honed and unhappy. Her body got with the program, but her mind didn’t. She teaches yoga for a living to ensure she stays in shape. Always. Paul Hammond is a gourmet chef. Naturally, he loves food. Naturally his body also loves his food, perhaps a bit too much. His doctor aka the nagging brother prescribes an exercise routine to whip him into shape. Yoga seems like a good idea, low impact, fun. and the instructor isn’t bad to look at either. He can’t formulate a coherent sentence around her, but when he discovers her dirty little secret, her love of tater tots, hilarity and a sensual teasing of the palates ensues. I loved this story! It was sexy, light-hearted at times, and rip-roaring funny as hell at other times. Or maybe I just have a slightly juvenile sense of humor. Bottom line is, it was funny and I loved it. I think anyone can empathize with Cami and how she feels, even if you don’t have an eating disorder. It wasn’t even just about that. Cami was made to feel guilty which just compounded her problem. She never learned that she could still enjoy some of the foods she loved, but in moderation. I could also understand her shame and not wanting the man she’s been crushing on for a while to see her at her worst. Paul was such a sweetheart in that regard. Not once did he make fun of her or bug her with questions. He was smart enough to not push the issue and try to help her in a different way. This couple had fantastic (culinary) chemistry, and I especially loved the hilarious dialogue between them. From the nervous word diarrhea filled with double entendres to the food geekery. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for a light, sexy and fun read that will leave you with a smile on your face and an ache in your belly, either because you’re hungry or because of laugh cramps. You’re guaranteed both. Favorite moment: I learned quite a bit from their dialogue about paddleboarding: - eight inches: the distance your hands should be when gripping the paddle - “mount the board”: (as opposed to trying to heave yourself up on it, jump it, straddle it, etc.) - “stroke it hard at first”: the paddle in the water - “you really want to stick it in there”: the paddle in the water - “is it too stiff?”: the paddle - “try a different one with a more flexible shaft”: the paddle Now, excuse me while I try to find a paddleboarding class at a lake near me.
