"Lexie Meyers decides there’s nothing sweeter than watching Sebastian Grayson’s perfect, wicked mouth devour her coconut cake. He’s hot, he’s hungry, and he’s sizing her up like she’s the best thing on the menu. But she’s been burned in the past and flings just aren't her thing. Too bad Sebastian can’t resist a challenge.
Worldly, famous, and notorious with the ladies, Seb had planned a weekend of fishing and relaxation with his brothers. Until Lexie, with her kissable lips and frosty “get lost” attitude, makes him want to forget his culinary empire and create some magic with her. After he fires up his charm - including challenging her to a televised cook-off to break through her resistance - it’s now hotter in the bedroom than it is in the kitchen and Lexie isn't sure whether she’s lost her mind . . . or just her heart." ~ From Goodreads
I wanted to like this book, I gave it about five chances to get to me. It didn't and it took me a long time to realize what I wasn't getting to the flow of it. And then it hit me, it wasn't so much the lack of romance, but the over abundance of work. And when I read romance I don't wanna focus on work.
Let me elaborate, as much as I liked the chemistry between Seb and Lexie, there wasn't a lot times they were together and let the romance develop, sure it was hot when they were together, but I was left missing more interaction with the two.
Now I did like Seb, he had the cocky arrogance of a guy who's very good at what he does and that made him sexy, especially when he was being all alpha dog with Lexie. Hot! Lexie I liked a little bit less than Seb, maybe because she was up to her elbows in drama, secrets and didn't wanna give up anything. Gets old fast.
So not my best experience, but if you like the blurb, do pick the book up, maybe these things just bothered me. ;) Not everybody.
