I’ve absolutely loved this book. It’s a tender, feel-good romance. A simple story of two people falling in love, without angst or dramas so typical of this genre. At the background of this story is the food which also keeps the simplicity of the rest of the plot but also highlighting its sensual experience. The parallelism between food and love run along the whole book and the sensuality of both are skillfully portrayed by the author. The food descriptions are mouth watering and the author manages to describe the dynamism of a busy restaurant kitchen or the tension of a cookery exam with great detail.
The chemistry of the main characters is explosive and the secondary characters are all well rounded, specially Olivia, the 6 year old daughter of Taryn.
I had read Ms. Bryant’s previous books and liked them but she really excels at this one. Highly recommended if you are looking for a tender slow-burn romance that leaves you feeling good. 5 stars.
I received this book for free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
