A week in Italy with Sean, her hot divorce attorney--not to mention the fantastic food and wine--sounds like the perfect getaway. If only she wasn't there to break her parents' hearts by quitting the family business. Sean's attention makes her feel brave, desirable, and adventurous again. But Sean is hiding something, and Olivia is short on trust these days. Can a romantic interlude in Italy turn into something more, or will it all go up in smoke?
"In the small but expanding niche of foodie romance, Usen's debut rules the kitchen with lip-smacking prose and rowdy protagonists who put Iron Chef to shame. . . the pacing, emotion, and erotic exuberance all sparkle. " - Publishers Weekly"In her superbly crafted debut, Usen blends together two realistically complicated protagonists, a well-realized culinary setting (complete with mouthwatering descriptions of food), and plenty of incendiary love scenes. The resulting literary dish is a smart, sexy, simply irresistible contemporary romance. " - Booklist TALL, DARK & DELICIOUSJoe Rafferty is just as mouthwatering as the food he cooks. But if he thinks he's going to waltz in and take over her kitchen, he's denser than a thick slice of chocolate ripple cheesecake. Marly has invested too much of her life in Chameleon to hand off the restaurant to someone else--especially a cocky-as-all-get-out superstar chef. But there's no denying the man knows how to light her fire. Question is: Can she have the sizzle without feeling the burn?"The title perfectly summarizes the feel of this book. Both the main characters and the culinary dishes are described in such a way that readers can practically taste, see and feel every word.
