Taryn Cummings could not believe she was accepted into the prestigious International Institute of Culinary Arts culinary institute she dreamed of studying at in beautiful Paris, France. It was a far cry from her unglamorous life back home in New York where she helped her mother run their small family-owned restaurant called Sam's. The International Institute of Culinary Arts churned out the top chefs in the world, including the wildly sexy and eccentric Master Chef Errol King, whose celebrity personality was larger than life.
She wanted excitement in a city of romance and thrills, but arrived to find her apartment barely livable and herself in need of a suitable place to stay. A chance meeting at the Institute brings her face-to-face with her new roommate...the devilishly charming Errol King, who would be guest teaching her class this term.
The attraction is as hot as the fire they cook with, and while Errol King, the notorious bad boy chef with an attitude, can get anyone he wanted into his bed, he wanted this woman more than anything. Something about her sweet innocence and sad eyes reach into his harden heart, but is it enough for him to forget his past?
I signed up for the Book Tour for Savor Me and decided to read it without reading Devour Me first which I thought was doable. The author made it where it was easy to catch on so I can be done if needed. But after reading Savor Me (Book 2) I just had to backtrack and read this one too. I got so caught up in the drama between Taryn and Errol and wanted to know more. I am sure you will too so if you had a choice in the matter, read this one first. Believe me you won’t regret it.
In this book it tells us how the Taryn and Errol met, describes how their daily interactions were, how their relationship starts from something professional into the physical and finally into something perhaps more. The teacher-student concept may be awkward for some but in this story it was never an issue for them to keep things separate. There was the occasional heated looks between the two in the kitchen but Taryn was talented enough that she never needed Errol’s influence to prove herself to anyone.
I loved how they fit perfectly. The chemistry between them was outrageous. Never have I found food play and cooking utensils that interesting. Who would have thought that a lemon reamer ….oh nevermind. Since this was Taryn’s first relationship I thought she may have over reacted in the end which leads to one crazy cliffhanger but as you know book 2 – Savor Me is now available. Stay tuned for that review this Sunday.
