Cal Mayer is thirty and starting over. His last relationship was a failure. His job went down the drain. So when his cousin Pete, a.k.a Baldwin Powell celebrity chef, offers him a gig in his restaurant, he can’t help but to jump at the offer to reinvent himself.
Bobby and Cal don’t exactly hit it off—to put it lightly. Bobby resents getting Cal dumped in his lap. Cal doesn’t appreciate Bobby’s frosty attitude. They’re stuck together day and night, and their chemistry is undeniable… but will it be sweet summer love or a case of too many chefs in the kitchen?
I enjoyed this latest effort by MJ O’Shea. Anything with chefs, especially chefs who fall in love, is right up my alley. All of the main characters were quite likable for the most part. Bobby was particularly prickly when Cal arrived, but I understood why. My only issue with the story was the inevitable conflict between the main couple. I felt it was a little forced and it’s resolution very rushed. The side characters, Murph and Baldwin/Pete, were great and I will definitely read the first book in the series to learn more about them and their sweet relationship. All in all, this was a good read, even though some of the characters frustrated me at times. lol
I received a copy of this book from the author via Signal Boost Promotions and voluntarily provided my honest review.
