Author: Kate Meader
Series: Hot in the Kitchen
Publication Date: May 07th, 2013

Photographer Lili DeLuca spends all her time managing her family’s Italian restaurant, instead of following her dream of getting an MFA. When famous British chef Jack Kilroy unexpectedly challenges her father to a cook-off, Lili decides she’s tired of playing it safe and vows to seduce the tempting Brit. But once a video of her and Jack kissing goes viral and her luscious butt starts trending on Twitter, Lili fears she’s cooked up a recipe for disaster . . .


Jack Kilroy’s celebrity has left him feeling used and used up. While Lili’s oh-so-sexy moans when she tastes his delicious creations turn him on, he’s even more aroused by how unimpressed this beautiful, funny woman is with his fame. He knows they could be amazing together, if she could only see past his bitch fork-wielding fan base. Now as he’s about to start a new prime time TV cooking show, can Jack convince Lili to realize her own ambitions – and turn up the heat in his kitchen?

Review: It took me weeks to read this book, I just couldn’t get into it enough to read more than an hour or so before having to stop and read something else. I didn’t feel any connection with anyone or have any interest in any of the characters. I felt the story dragged and quite a bit of it was unnecessary. I picked this up simply because I had already received the second book on netgalley, I didn’t know it was part of a series, and I hate reading series books out of order.

Stars: ★★★
Recommendation: Not something I’d recommend, if you do read it, I suggest borrowing it.
