Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: July 13, 2020


One hot chef
One beautiful woman
One chance encounter
Mix and dish up some love

Erin Bazzara is living life to the fullest as a single woman in New Orleans and making a name for herself as one of the top psychologists in the state of Louisiana. Years ago, she swore off men after receiving devastating news, news that proved her fiancé didn’t care about the rule “in sickness and in health.” It also proved he didn’t really care about her.
Good riddance, who needs a man anyway? Not her. Not ever again.
Or so she thought, until she literally runs into a certain world-renowned chef who looks at her like she might be his next four-course meal.

Chef Curtis Rockwell, host of the award-winning Chef To Go, never knows who the next participant on his show will be. State to state, city to city, he scours grocery store aisles each episode, looking for the perfect stranger to go home with so he can teach them how to cook a gourmet meal. It’s always been just a part of his job, a job he loves but still a job…
Then he spots her. The perfect participant. The perfect woman. A woman not even his dreams could have conjured up.
Now, all he has to do is prove the heat between them won’t just sizzle out like yesterday’s flambé.

**My thoughts**
I loved the way that these two met in the beginning. It makes me want to make sure I am properly dressed every time I go to the grocery store from now on! They immediately have an intense physical attraction to each other that is off the charts. But somehow they make it through their taping.

I relate well to Erin with her secret that has prevented her from having a real relationship since her fiance dumped her over it. It's an affliction that I suffer from myself and one that I'm glad is getting more of a role in stories as some level of awareness. Curtis also has some hidden issues that Erin is able to slowly discover partially through her prowess as a psychologist, but also because they innately trust each other. They have excellent chemistry and banter. I especially liked how Curtis wants to take care of her, even though she's pretty independent. And a man who can cook gets bonus points, for sure.

I think my favorite part of the whole book is the lengthy section about their first date on the New Orleans ghost tour. I learned a lot in addition to enjoying their relationship and watching their attraction grow. It reinforced my desire to go down there some day to take one of those tours. Bonus points if I could find a hottie chef.

I will say that the insta-love bit was a little hard for me to swallow. I mean, a day? But stranger things have happened. And I still enjoyed the book overall. It's rather spicy, so I was even happier that I was poolside so that I could cool off!

Thank you to the publisher and Give Me Books for fulfilling my review request. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Author Bio

KD Robichaux wanted to be a romance author since the first time she picked up her mom's Sandra Brown books at the ripe old age of twelve. She went to college to become a writer, but then married her very own alpha and had babies. Putting her dream job on hold to raise her family as a stay at home mom who read entirely too much, she created a blog where she could keep her family and friends up-to-date on all the hottest reads. From there, by word of mouth, her blog took off and she began using her hard-earned degree as a full-time editor. When her kids started school, and with the encouragement from her many author friends, she finally sat down and started working on her first series, The Blogger Diaries, her own real-life romance. She's now published more than fifteen stories in many different genres of romance.
