I love my life. As owner and chef at one of the hottest restaurants, I know how to keep things sizzling in and out of the kitchen. What more could I ask for? But I’ll tell you what I didn’t ask for… a klutzy, curly-haired woman slamming into me with a unicorn cake. Yes, you read that right—a damn cake decorated to look like the mythical creature bathed in every color of the rainbow.
What could be worse, right? I’ll tell you. My brother hired her to be my pastry chef. You’d think that would be my biggest problem, but that was just the tip of the iceberg.
Aside from her being one of the clumsiest women I’ve ever met, she turns me on like no other woman has. She tastes sweeter than anything she creates, and we make a great team in and out of the bedroom... I mean kitchen.
When we first met, I worried my restaurant wouldn’t survive her. Now I worry that my heart won’t.
I never wanted to fall in love, but sometimes life isn’t all unicorns and rainbows.
Sometimes books are titled perfectly and well Hooked hooked me right away. The characters, the banter, the chemistry, just about everything about Hooked I liked or loved. Hooked was just what I needed to read when I read it after some intense books and a bunch of let downs.
Josh and Gia I absolutely adored and even now thinking about them puts a smile on my face. What I wouldn’t give to have my husband be a Chef, but since I can’t I will dream that Josh is my man and he will cook for me whenever I wanted. A girl can always dream right? Gia was adorably awkward at times, but I say that in a good way, she was a refreshing change to some of the heroines I have read lately.
I really enjoyed Hooked and I really want to find the time to read the entire series as I know I have missed some of the books.
