My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Bastien isn’t used to bad reviews. His French restaurant is the toast of the town, and when a well-known critic insults it, he’s left off-kilter. Luckily for him he’s found a distraction. He’s just met an attractive writer at his niece’s school bake sale. He’s into food, into Bastien and the touch of kink they share, and there’s a chemistry between them that might make the perfect recipe.
James isn’t expecting to meet a good-looking French chef at a bake sale, but he’s not going to let the chance slide. It comes as a surprise when the chef turns out to be the owner of a place he knows—and has reviewed—and it puts James in a sticky situation. So he might have to omit some pertinent information to make it work… at least for now.
I loved the idea of a chef and a food critics as a main characters for the story, loved the cover as well.
It was good in the beginning of the story where Bastien got so mad after James wrote a review, a bad review of his restaurant.
Their real first meeting was also interesting and I was hoping that I can get more to see what's going to happen with the two guys.
And I've got so many cooking lessons (not that I'm complained), but with so many cooking and dining and nothing's really happened with their 'instant relationship', I felt bored easily. And the food didn't appealed me anymore.
The sex parts was hot. That's why I keep reading this and finished the story.
There's no angst after Bastien found out who James really are. There's some silent moments and then James cooked for him instead of talking (that's probably how chefs saying they're sorry though), and then Bastien forgave him. The end.
If you're a cook or chef or you're into this kind of story, you'll probably going to love this one. Give it a try, and let's see, and I hope you'll enjoy the story.
And there's plenty of food and cooking tricks, what's not to love?
