Just one taste isn't enough…
I ran into Rex Keene—literally—when I was trying to catch my flight and his muscled, tattooed arms stopped my fall.
Then our flight gets canceled, and we're stranded in the same hotel room together...it ended up being the steamiest night of my life.
All I knew is that I had to see him again.
I just didn’t expect him to show up a week later in the restaurant I manage…as our new head chef.
But the generous, tender man I spent that night with is gone; instead he’s arrogant, demanding, and terrorizing the staff.
But he won’t give up until we’re together – and I’m not sure I can stay away.
Which man is real?
Who is Rex Keene?
From bestselling author Opal Carew, take a bite of Meat.
Meat is exactly what you are expecting from the title and the knowledge that it is a Swerve title. Rex and Rebecca are a fun couple, from their meeting in the airport to the discovery that he is the new head chef who has been causing havoc in her beloved hotel restaurant.
There are the erotic elements that you would expect, the immediate sex and the other “erotic” elements. The book is also fairly short, so there is not as much character development as in a longer novel.
All of this said, this book is done really well. The sex is hot, the characters are believable, the dialog is real and feels like actual people are speaking the words. The secondary plot around the hotel gives some external conflict, while at the same time, it is dealt with quickly so it does not bog down the rest of the plot.
I recommend this overall. It is a well-written, short, hot read that delivers exactly what you expect in a way that is enjoyable.
