A free-spirited woman…
Eccentric interior designer Mirelle Brasseur is tired of relationships with handsome, charming, fickle men—in other words men just like the father who abandoned her. She’s fun and funky, but takes her career seriously. She’s not about to let a man derail her dreams or wound her heart again.
An ambitious man…
Award winning chef Bradan Hunt is handsome and charming, but he's always honest with women about his one date-one night rule. Between his best-selling cookbooks, his TV appearances, and his restaurant, he’s too busy for a relationship. He saw what a lack of ambition did to his parents. Bradan wants more. His newest restaurant is going to be the best, so he hires Mirelle to help him design it.
Turn up the heat…
Soon it isn’t just the food sizzling in the kitchen, in spite of Mirelle’s misgivings, as the attraction between the chef and the designer heats up. It will take more than one date-one night for them to overcome their pasts and find a way to cook up a sweet future together.
My Thoughts - Story
This was my first book of the new year and what a sweet surprise it was! As you know, my taste in books fluctuates all over the place. You can find me reading a dark, horror mind fuck one day and the next one start a sweet romance. By being this diverse and open minded – it is times like this that I am happy to experience such a broad spectrum of genres.
This book brought me back down to a fantasy love story between two troubled souls. Mirelle is so screwed up from the past with her father while Bradan has misplaced his priorities. Both of their problems stem back from their childhood and their misguided emotions and beliefs.
It isn’t until they come together as a couple…Bradan can’t get Mirelle out of his mind and Mirelle tries so hard to continue to evade Bradan’s advances but nothing works out the way they want.
By opening themselves up to the other, they both start to heal from their past and realize that the present and future have so much available to them if they only just….LET GO.
Bradan is a famous chef…Mirelle is an interior designer – Bradan is opening a new restaurant and wants Mirelle to design it. However, after meeting, Bradan wants so much more than just her touch of design.
Mirelle continues to pick guys who are players and end up cheating on her…she finally makes a pact not to date the good looking players anymore. Well, Bradan matches this exactly and she tries her hardest to dodge his advances until he finally wears her down.
