About the author:

Louisa Edwards is the author of ”Can’t Stand the Heat”, “On the Steamy Side”, and ”Just One Taste”. She grew up in Virginia, where at the age of 11, she was already sneaking Harlequin romances from her grandmother’s suitcase, much to her parents’ horror. She graduated from Bryn Mawr College before moving to Manhattan to work in book publishing—a dream job that allowed her to earn a living by reading romance novels. She later moved to Ohio, where she worked as a restaurant reviewer. The Recipe for Love series combines her love of food and romance. When she’s not writing, Louisa eats at as many wonderful restaurants as possible—purely for research, of course. 


Klapptext:

When it comes to competitive cooking, Max Lunden is no stranger to winning… though he’s never been great at working with a team. A master chef - and major hunk - he’s traveled the world, picking up new cooking techniques as well as beautiful woman. But when the prodigal chef returns home to his family’s Greenwich Village restaurant, he discovers one too many cooks in the kitchen - and she’s every bit as passionate as he is…

Juliet Cavanaugh used to have a crush on Max when she was just a teenager, hanging out at Lunden & Sons Tavern, hoping to catch a glimpse of the owner’s oldest, and hottest, son. Now a chef herself - competing the biggest culinary contest in the country - Juliet will be cooking side by side with the one man she’s always admired… and desired. But despite their simmering attraction. Juliet is determined to keep her cool – no matter how hot it gets… 

 

Meinung:

“Too Hot To Touch” ist der erste Band in der Rising Star Chef-Reihe der Autorin Louisa Edwards – und auch mein persönlicher Erstversuch mit ihren Büchern. Obwohl ich ja offen zugeben muss, dass das Cover der ausschlaggebende Kaufgrund war und ich vorher überhaupt nicht geguckt hatte, ob es Teil einer Serie ist oder ein Einzelband. Kann ich ja dieses Mal von Glück sagen, dass ich den Serienstart erwischt habe. *gg*
