Overview

Just One Taste: A Recipe for Love Novel by Louisa Edwards

Bad-boy chef Wes Murphy is dreading his final-semester cooking class—Food Chemistry 101—until he meets the new substitute teacher. Dr. Rosemary Wilkins is a feast for the eyes, though her approach to food is strictly academic. So Wes decides to rattle her Bunsen burner by asking for her hands-on advice—on aphrodisiacs

Rosemary is a little wary about working with Wes, whose casual flirtations make her hot under the collar. But once they begin testing the love-enhancing power of chocolate, oysters, and strawberries, it becomes scientifically evident that the brainy science nerd and the boyish chef have some major chemistry together—and it's delicious

About the Author

Louisa Edwards is the author of Can't Stand the Heat and On the Steamy Side. She grew up in Virginia, where at the age of 11, she was already sneaking Harlequin romances from her grandmother's suitcase, much to her parents' horror. She graduated from Bryn Mawr College before moving to Manhattan to work in book publishing—a dream job that allowed her to earn a living by reading romance novels. She later moved to Ohio, where she worked as a restaurant reviewer. The Recipe for Love series combines her love of food and romance. When she's not writing, Louisa eats at as many wonderful restaurants as possible—purely for research, of course.

The third installment in the Recipe for Love series. I have enjoyed the series and this latest book was no exception. The blurb from the book is all about Wes and Rosemary's romance. However, there is a secondary romance, one featuring Jess and Frankie (a gay couple) that has been playing out over the course of the series and finally came to a head during this book. This couple got nearly as much playtime as Wes and Rosemary and it is a shame. It's almost as if both stories were shortchanged by having to share space within this book. That said, I really did like this story. I particularly enjoyed the quirky character of Rosemary. She's not your typical romance heroine, but she's believable and likable. Rosemary is the star of her romance. Wes is the weaker of the pairing. Of course, he's the once with experience, but he's also the one struggling with his past and his possible future with Rosemary. I'm quite interested to see if this series is going to continue or if Ms Edwards will be stopping with a trilogy. And for those cooks out there (of which I am not), there are recipes included in each book to enhance your enjoyment of the story.

I was actually really excited that this book was about a character that really didn't stand out as much in the first 2 books of this series. I'm totally in love with Wes as a character I love how he has a bad boy quality to him but wants to do good. I did enjoy the character of Rosemary but I did feel her "nerdiness" was a bit much but still great character none the less she's your typical plain jane whos obessed with sci-fi and is a genius. Also within this book is the final "chapter" in the Frankie and Jess romance and you really get to see how their relationship finally comes together, I was happy with the outcome but I do agree with RtBBlog I felt this book was a bit rushed since it was shared with another story but that didn't stop me from purchasing "Too Hot to Touch" which is the first book in Ms. Edwards "RIsing Chef" series. What I love about Louisa Edward books is there are recipies at the end which is awesome because sometimes when I'm reading the food that is being discribed makes my mouth water lol.

Louisa Edwards did a wonderful job again.  I'm not quite sure if I spent as much time enjoying the book or wishing it came with a personal chef to cook everything as I read about it. This is definitely not a book to read while you're hungry.

I loved Rosemary. Yes, she is an over the top nerdling. So, what? Star Trek, Star Wars, Land of the Lost. Absent minded obsessions. Cool. She is smart and strong. I liked Wes as well. Sexy chef trying to becoming himself. I thought the conflict for West stretched out too long. The end of the book felt rough. I wish there are been more there and more of the HEA and couple time but overall I was charmed and will be reading more by this writer. Fun!

This is the last book in the Recipe for Love series and I'm so sad to say goodbye to these characters! I loved Wes and Rosemary's story (Rosemary is an awesome character!) There are also cameos in this book from Miranda and Adam (the h/h from Can't Stand the Heat) which were fun and helped to wrap up the secondary romance between Frankie and Jess. I can't wait for Edward's next series to come out!
