Dishing Up Love by K.D. Robichaux
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 rating: 5 of 5 stars
This book was absolutely amazing! I have to admit to a momentary girlie squealing moment when I realized who the book was about! (I’m not sharing, you will just have to read it to make the connection!) But afterwards, I tucked into the book, and got to reading. I’m so glad I did! This couple is so sweet, absolutely perfect for each other, and it is set in the most amazing city ever!
Erin is a psychologist, and gets to help people through her job. And she loves that. But life isn’t perfect, and she learns that the hard way. So, she decides to live life on her terms, that she doesn’t need anyone else to make her life the best it can be. Until she literally bumps into a man that leaves her head spinning! As they say in the big easy, Let the good times roll!
Curtis is a chef, who loves what he does! And he now gets to share that love with viewers everywhere, with his TV show. Surprising viewers, helping them learn that “Cook” doesn’t have to be a 4 letter word! He lives his life the way he wants to, gets to travel, and meet new people. Life couldn’t be better! Until a certain girl catches his eye, and everything changes!
I adored Erin and Curtis’s story! I have to admit to laughing throughout their story, but there were a few tears too. This is a story that will capture your heart, leave you with a smile on your face, and show you that even in the most dire of circumstances, there is still hope! It’s a beautiful, fun, quirky story that is sure to become a favorite of mine!
