Lulu Cavanaugh’s a liar.

The moment she lost her job running the fanciest restaurant on Maui, Lulu threw herself into recovery-mode. She’s pitched a cooking show, and as soon as it gets the green light, she’ll come clean to her family. Prodigy chefs don’t fail–so she’s waiting until she has the kind of news that will blow them away.

Alexander Wilder flamed out.

An injury cut short the quarterback’s promising career, but he’s determined to find his way back–even if it means swerving in the most unexpected way. So, when a producer offers him a cooking show, he takes it. He grew up in his mom’s restaurant, so he knows his way around a kitchen, and it’ll give him much-needed visibility…why not?

Lulu nails her audition. But before she can pop open the champagne in celebration, the producers drop a bomb: they’re giving her a co-host. And she can pretty much take it or leave it, because the quarterback’s got the starring role.

What happens when these enemies become lovers?

Heat so hot even the kitchen can’t stand it.


Xander’s gaze skimmed over her features, as if she were precious to him. β€œThe thought of you being here with Griffin drove me crazy.”

β€œWhy?” Lulu whispered.

β€œBecause I want to be with you.” He pressed his mouth to hers, softly, gently. β€œOnly you.”

And then he kissed her.

It was soft, sweet, but his body practically vibrated with restraint. She wanted himβ€”God, did she want himβ€”but her fears were screaming. Still, she knew–she absolutely knew–if she didn’t take a leap of faith and kiss him back, she’d never have a chance at this kind of love.

Clasping her hands around his neck, body pressed up against his, she opened her heart, her soul, and let herself fall into him. And it was dizzying. β€œWhat part of me do you want?” She lowered her forehead to his chest. β€œBecause if you just want my body for a night or two, that’s just…I mean, if you know me at all, you have to know that won’t work for me.”

“I want all of you. I want us. Nothing feels better than being with you.”

She flung herself against him, lifting up on her toes to reach his mouth. His kiss was hot, urgent, and sent her senses spiraling. She thought she might melt from the heat of his desire, and when she whimpered, he bent his knees, lifted her, and carried her to the blanket.

β€œYou want this, too? Us?” His eyes were wild.

β€œMore than anything.”

MY REVIEW:

A swoon worthy delight! Another terrific Calamity Falls romance with a dream couple in Cavanaugh sister Lulu and the hunky football quarterback Xander. Both are in an unsettling career situation and while she has a plan to get back on track, he’s waiting on a decision beyond his control. Both end up in Calamity Falls and their proximity leads to a slow burn attraction that explodes into a toe tingling romance. Lulu and Xander find common ground and slide into a sexy relationship while working together. The introvert Lulu blooms in the kitchen and Xander is mesmerized by her sensuality and beauty. She likes his outside as much as his inside and he’s just the sweetest. Their connection is real and I love the the depth to the relationship. I love these Cavanaugh sisters and can’t wait for Stella’s story. And any sighting of the hunky Bowie men is a treat. This is a spectacular romance with tons of emotion and terrific family and friends. Absolutely fantastic!
