Book Review: Melting Into You by Cassandra Carr

Seth, a chef who runs a mac & cheese food truck in Austin, Texas is immediately enamored with the straight-laced new case manager at the Mission, where he provides leftover culinary delights each day. Ben can't deny his attraction to the chef, but he's apprehensive. He's just moved to Austin and he's unsure about starting anything serious. Seth charms and woos Ben in ways he's never experienced before, and makes him realize that taking a chance on love isn't quite as scary as it seems.

This book was okay to me. It wasn't particularly bad, but at the same time I wasn't wowed. Seth and Ben are both likeable, and I enjoyed their interactions with secondary characters, but there was no oomph or real excitement.

As a self-proclaimed foodie, I loved reading about Seth's dishes, which included various incarnations of macaroni and cheese as well as other food creations. Seth and Ben's interactions were sweet, but it was the food truck aspect that really caught my attention. I really appreciated the index at the end of the book which described all of the Seth's mac & cheese dishes, many of which made my mouth water.

Overall, Melting Into You was a pleasant read, but not something I'd read again in the future.
