Today I'm reviewing Cooking Up Love by Candace Shaw!
Now, if you all know me by now, you know how much I love romances with cooking involved in it! I don't know why I love them so much. But I think it is absolutely sexy! And of course, you know I love stories that surround families! This has both!
This book did not disappoint!
Here is my amazon review:
Miss Shaw Heats Things Up with Cooking Up Love!
Shelbi Arrington is happy with her job as a food critic. She has no desire to start her residency and follow in her family's medical career footsteps. And love certainly isn't on her brain. Then she meets Justin Richardson, the very sexy chef of a restaurant that Shelbi ends up critiquing.
Justin's main focus is to run his restaurant, something that was a dream of his and his mother's, who passed away when he was only twelve. Because of his mother's death, Justin has a strong animosity towards doctors.
Justin is attracted to Shelbi from the first time he meets her. She's smart, sassy and tells it like it is. Even if her opinions piss him off!
The chemistry between these two is hot! But there is also drama and emotion as well. I was so nervous about them finding out about each other's pasts. I was eager to find out how they would react.
I also loved the secondary characters in this story. Of course there is Shelbi's family, the Arringtons, who are there for Shelbi, be it supportive or annoyingly!
I am eager to read the rest of the books in Miss Shaw's, Arrington Family Series!
I've gotta tell you, her books have been on my TBR list for a loooong time! I'm glad I started with this one and I can't wait to read the rest! I'm such a big fan now!!!
P.S. Cooking Up Love is the first book in The Arrington Family Series and it is currently Free! Pick it up on amazon!
