Things are cooking in the kitchen... And in the bedroom.
Restaurant owner Phoebe Mayle thought she had it all under control. Sure, her new chef has a bad-boy reputation--and a chiseled body to match--but she's positive she can whip him into shape.
But from the moment Nick Avalon roars into town in his Hummer, he makes her whole world sizzle. Not only has Nick taken over her kitchen, he's taken over her mind and her body. His insatiable appetite for her pleasure leaves her breathless with carnal cravings only he can satisfy. Can their hunger for each other be a recipe for a love that lasts? (source: back cover)

REVIEW:
Fill your tub up with ice cubes, sit in it and read this book! Good gracious, holy 9 1/2 Weeks spoon feeding scene Batman! Wow, wow, wow! Jamie from For the Love of Romance was not kidding about Lilli Feisty being a must read author.

Where can I get my own Nick Avalon? Heck, I'd settle for any gorgeous yellow Hummer driving, the Le Cordon Bleu graduate, chocolate pudding making, banana flambeing, oyster gathering, orange peeling, dark haired, blue eyed chef with magical hands and mouth and has a tendency for whisking. Throw in a tattoo and I think my knees just turned into jello.

The relationship between Nick and Phoebe is hot and cold. Yes, the sexing is HOT, HOT, HOT! Yet, their feelings towards each other run a little tepid. Nick wants to go back to his life in Los Angeles, Phoebe knows he's not going to stay. Nick's constant voicing of his dislike of the town grates Phoebe but his touch puts fire in her veins and he's panty dropping good looking to boot. At every turn she thinks Nick is trying to one up her: teaching her niece to cook, changing the menu to be a little fancier and even entering brownies in the bake off, of which her families recipe has won for the past 10 years.

Since the passing of her parents and sister, Phoebe has thrown herself into organic farming and running the cafe owned by her late aunt and uncle. She is determined to show the community that she can carry on the tradition of baking the best brownies and has the ability to run the cafe with the help of her niece and that guy, Nick Avalon. At first, she doesn't know what to do with Nick but after getting to know him a little better, she finds that there is something simmering under his cocky bad boy image.

Nick is just there to re-assess and get his life back together. He's not there to find love or comfort in the arms of an uptight cafe owner. Between taking snark from Phoebe, teaching her niece to cook, showing her how to loosen up behind closed doors and letting the little town and its people grow on him, he's bound to lose his heart along the way. Bad boy, meet good girl and get ready to rock her world with all sorts of foodstuffs.

FAVORITE QUOTE:
Her entire body was thrumming with lust and desire. Not just sexual, but so much deeper. She needed something more than a fuck. She needed Nick. She needed him to own her. Now that he'd won the battle, she wanted nothing more than to surrender completely.
OVERALL: Dear Lilli Feisty, where have you been all my romance book reading life? This book is (I'm borrowing from the title) deliciously sinful, wayyy better than chocolate pudding. It's a sexy, laugh out loud, book gripping, thigh clenching, 'oh my god did I just moan out loud in public?', pupil dilating, heart pounding read with a side of whisking. Sheesh! Who knew whisking could be so hot? I was waiting for the book to go up in flames after reading. Again, where can I get a man like Nick Avalon? Those chefs on the Food Network have nothing on Nick Avalon, nothing I tell you! Oh god, now I'm going to be looking at the likes of Bobby Flay and wonder if he too practices whisking outside of the kitchen. Ahh!!!
