Things are cooking in the kitchen...and the bedroom.
Restaurant owner Phoebe Mayle thought she had it all under control. Sure, her new chef has a bad-boy reputation - and a chiseled body to match - but she's positive she can whip him into shape.
But from the moment Nick Avalon roars into town in his Hummer, he makes her whole world sizzle. Now Phoebe has lost control of her kitchen, and Nick has taken over her mind and her body. His insatiable appetite for pleasure leaves her breathless with carnal cravings only he can satisfy. Yet can their hunger for each other be a recipe for a love that lasts?
Since reading Louisa Edwards books about the sexy world of Chefs, I find myself HOOKED. But DELICIOUSLY SINFUL fell short of the mark for me.
Nick Avalon is a conceited Chef who thinks he is all that and then some. He arrives in a small town in Northern California with a huge chip on his shoulder and a major attitude that I found somewhat annoying. I will admit that I love falling for the bad-boy in romance books, but I didn't find Nick appealing at all. There was no charm, nothing that pulled me to him and I couldn't like him.
This story has some strong BDSM elements, which I do love to read. However, the fact that Phoebe gets swatted with a wisk? That wasn't erotic, it was too damn funny and lacked something that I just can't put my finger on. For me, when you have a scene between the hero and heroine, there should be something more than just the sex between them. There needs to be a connection. I couldn't see a connection between Phoebe and Nick.
I have read Lilli's other books and I thought they were great. But Deliciously Sinful fell flat for me. There was no believability that these two people could meet and fall in love.
