    Love the premise! I could totally picture Zack being a super sexy chef, but the editing killed me :(

    I received this book with the understanding that I could leave a voluntary and honest review. In this book we meet Juliann Addison and Zach Elliot. Julliann is a woman who is just starting in the industry. Though she has worked for years to hone her craft since she is young they consider her and up and coming.

Julliann is a woman who is just starting in the industry. Though she has worked for years to hone her craft since she is young they consider her and up and coming. So when she signs up for a contest (at her best friends insistence) to win an internship with acclaimed chef Zach Elliot she doesn't really think she will win. Being one of the final 3 she must attend an award ceremony to find out who the winner is. Julliann is nervous so if it could go wrong it kinda does for her but she does win. Zach can't believe the woman he wants more than anything is in front of him at this ceremony. He doesn't want to embarrass himself but he does want to push her buttons some. Now that he knows that he will have her with him for the next year he knows he can relax and give her time to come to him. Will these two find that they are destined for a HEA or will outside influence make it seem like this is just a passing phase? This is another amazing story by this author. It does have its ups and downs I really want to tell you about. However I don't want to ruin the story for any other readers. I will say this book will take you on an emotional roller-coaster you won't want to get off of it even when the story is done. I would highly recommend it to anyone and everyone.

    This story was hard for me to rate. There were several things that I liked about the story, but there were other things that really annoyed me. Pros - I liked that Zack was attracted to and wanted to be with Juliann from the beginning. I liked that he was excited to work with her for the next year. Zack being willing to give Juliann all the time she needed to come to him was awesome too. Juliann being excited to work with Zack was great. Juliann having a great best friend that was so supportive This story was hard for me to rate.

Juliann being excited to work with Zack was great. Juliann having a great best friend that was so supportive was wonderful. Cons - Juliann repeatedly asked those around her NOT to call her sweetie pie but they all continued to do so including her best friend and her new boss/boyfriend. I felt like that was really disrespectful. Zack not listening to Juliann and making excuses to keep Francesca around even after Juliann told him she was afraid of her was disrespectful. The way Juliann talked to and treated Zack off and on irritated me and made me feel that she was very immature. Juliann being so wishy-washy with Francesca made me want to smack her in the head. The story was entertaining. I liked their happy ever after a lot. I know that my review is probably confusing and I'm sorry about that. I do recommend reading this book for yourself and giving it a chance. Maybe you will like it better than I did!

    Juliann Addison is one lucky girl. She gets to work and learn from Zack Elliott. He owns the Kitty Cat Strut restaurant and is an excellent chef/baker. He plans to show Jules the ropes to advance her career but there is a spark between them and he can’t resist. She feels it too but there is no way Zack would be interested in her. But Zack’s past is going to test his relationship with Jules. This is such a sweet romance. I love the sweet romance of love at first sight. It’s always heartwarming.

Their passion is a slow burn not a quick one. Zack has a great deal of patience with Jules. But once they get started, WOW. Of course there has to be a wrinkle in the story, the past. Always someone has a smudge on their past. Plus Zack has a few issues with his staff. UGH, you just want to clap Francesca. I didn’t understand why he just didn’t tell Jules sooner, why wait. And the other thing is Jules is too easy to sway. She believes something and never once thinks otherwise. How can you love someone if you can’t trust? Things work out but I do wish that Jules was a lot bolder and stronger.

    Big-Girl Erotica Let me just state this plainly: this book is big-girl erotica. I wouldn't necessarily call him an alpha, although I know that that is a particular subgenre of big-girl erotica, curvy girl/alpha male. There is a bit of a plot to get them together and “together,” but once they are, the novel seems mostly about them getting busy and having some fun with occasional problems from his cranky, vindictive sous chef/former sister-in-law who has an unrequited attraction to him.

[SPOILER: I had a hard time believing the H & h’s dark moment at the end. After all the trouble the heroine had with Francesca the sous chef, is the heroine seriously going to believe her to the extent that she did without talking to Zach first? Puh-leeze! Grow some ovaries, girl!] There were some problems with grammar, punctuation, and usage—especially commas, irregular capitalization, and improper formatting around dialogue—that I unfortunately found were still present in the published version, not just my ARC version. However, if you like erotic big girl romance, this may be up your alley for brief titillation. I received a free copy of this book, but that did not affect my review.

I really liked Zach, i think he really cared for Juliann and he felt guilty about his past, even though he didn't do anything wrong. I liked that Zach like Juliann's curves and made her feel so good about herself. Another good one.

It takes a while for them both to realize it, and due to outside forces, it almost collapses before they find out if it will work out or not.

    Hmmmm, I don’t know how Julianna tolerated people called in “Sweetie pie” let alone her best friend When specifically asked them not to. Oh well. She won a challenge was able to work in a restaurant for a year with Zachary Elliot. Her being a southern woman with curves and accent should’ve been pretty straight forward. Anxiety spurred their first encounter and it was restrained interactions until it was inevitable. There is a villain in this story.

    Loved it Ugh I hated when I finished this book because I just loved it. Juliann is darling and I couldn't stop adding the accent when she was talking. I'm glad that she had back up in Kelsey. Zack is not what you expect in the sense that even tho he is cocky he's actually likeable fairly easily. You start rooting for them from the very beginning and hate Fran from the minute she starts mouthing off. Loved it! Can't wait for the next book!

    A nicely-written story of an older man and younger woman romance. The characters are realistically written, where each of them have flaws - not everyone is perfect - He does stand up for her. The plot is not unique, but it is still good. Our rich hero suffers love at first sight, and his dream wonders if he can be trusted. Lovely read I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

    Whew! This is one exciting and amazing read! It is a fast pace page-turner that steamy, funny, and witty with twists and turns, drama, and more. The entertainment level increases as the story progresses and kept me interested. The characters are sweet; the chemistry between them is instant, blazing hot, and off the charts amazing.

    I didn't really care for this book. There were a lot of editing problems that I found distracting from the main plot of the story. Most of the plot itself was unbelievable, and I had a hard time connecting with the main characters. The story itself rather dragged for me, and I wound up forcing myself to finish it. Suffice it to say, this is a one and done for me, as I have no interest in continuing with the other books in the series or in any other books by the author. I didn't really care for this book.

    I really loved this story. It had everything in it what you need.

    Juliann was a Curvy dessert chef looking towards her future when meeting the famous chef, zack. Their chemistry was an intense mixing of lust with the forbidden as he was to teacher in his restaurant for a year. I felt the story was slow going for me, I couldn't seem to connect with it and become engaged with the book. But I think it was more my frame of mind than the story itself.

    Super sweet Really sweet and quick read. There was a lot of repetitive and back and forth for me that it kind of made me upset that Jules wouldn't stay focused, I guess you could say. I really love the story and the characters tho. I still love this author and will continue to read her books. Super sweet Really sweet and quick read.

    Well... I really wanted to like this book more than I do but there were some things that prevented that. Juliann's emotions yoyo so fast my head spins. Zack was very 'well it may be bad but if I ignore it it should work itself out'. I liked the story line, but I felt like the situation with Francesca sounded like it was going one way but ended up completely flat. Well...
