Book Review: Yes, Chef by Alex Cohen

Diego is the executive chef in a swanky restaurant in the northern midwest. Not only is he an incredible chef, but he also runs a tight ship in his kitchen. When the owner hires his own nephew, Ben, to be the restaurant's new pastry chef, Diego does not want to like him at all. However, Ben is so charming and nice that it's actually pretty difficult to dislike him; and Diego enjoys spending more and more time in his presence. Both men are harboring painful pasts, and those issues could potentially hinder any romantic opportunities presented to them.

I have to say that I was neither wowed nor bored with this novella. It was okay. I loved the cooking aspect of the book, but the actual romance between the main characters fell flat. Diego and Ben also suffered from an extraordinary (and annoying) case of not being able to communicate. This is standard in many books, but these two just refused to utter even a single word that could have made their lives better.

All in all, it was a nice book, but not all that memorable.

An ARC of this book was provided by the publisher, via NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review.
