Rachel Goodman dishes up a delightful treat with this romantic contemporary. Gwen Lalonde has a sharp tongue and a sharp mind, two of my favorite things in a heroine. The fact that Logan Stonestreet admires both of those qualities cemented him in my eyes as a perfect hero. This couple has such a wonderful rapport and I loved witness she hem trading barbs with one another. When Gwen is dumped and fired in such a horrible way I thought I would feel sorry for her, but Gwen didn't need my pity at all. She is a strong and capable woman with mad kitchen skills. Logan could so easily have been too much. You know the all-American boy next door that every woman wants, the football hero full of himself and his own importance. But while he was more than confident he was compassionate as well. The fact that he worried so much about his team that he took on so much internal pressure to be the best and make everyone else the best made him so special. I felt as if I took a roller coaster ride with these two and I'm so glad I got to ride along. I cannot wait to see some of the other sexy sportsmen get their own adventures. If you are a fan of contemporary romances, sports romances or foodie romances this one is just right for you.
The Story: Gwen Lalonde's career takes a horrible twist and she finds herself working in a steakhouse for for football star Logan Stonestreet. She's determined to clear her good name and doesn't have time for romance but Logan has other ideas and who can blame Gwen when she finally gives in. But when Logan's career faces a major challenge will it bring them closer together or tear them apart?

Gwen Lalonde is a rising star in the eyes of the elite restaurateurs of the world. But when her celebrity chef boss and now ex-boyfriend fires her, she finds herself playing a different game.
