Book Review: Recipe for Romance by Parker Elliot

When Cory and his sister find themselves in search for a new head chef to take over the kitchen of their restaurant, Flavor, due to Elise's upcoming maternity leave, Cory is nervous. He and his sister have such a good thing going, and the thought of being without her, even temporarily, puts him on edge, especially after an incident with his ex that almost ruined his reputation and put Flavor out of business.

Wyatt just recently returned to Chicago after spending years in London honing his skills as an up-and-coming chef. A bad break up didn't help matters either; however, he can't help but feel elated, and a little scared, when an opportunity at Flavor falls into his lap. You see, he and Cory have a past. One that didn't end in rainbows and declarations of love, but abandonment and sadness; so how will they react once they're face-to-face once again?

I liked this story! The characters are very likeable and interesting, and I found myself invested in their lives. The relationship between Cory and Wyatt was sweet when things were good, but when things were bad, I felt that the angst was exaggerated and a little frustrating. The "big misunderstanding" was blown out of proportion from Cory's standpoint, especially since he didn't have all of the information. Wyatt's fault in the situation, in my opinion, was not nearly as substantial as the characters made it out to be. There was also one storyline left open that I'd wished had been resolved. It would have brought closure to everything.

All in all, this is an enjoyable book I recommend to all m/m romance fans!

I received a copy of this book from the author and voluntarily provided my honest review.
