Kitchen Affairs by Brooke Cumberland
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I bought this book a couple weeks ago and finally got the chance to read it. It was fantastic. I had tears in my eyes (the sign of a good book with great character development to me) but only once or twice, don't like too many sad parts.
Molly is a young single mother whose fiance, which she loved very much, was killed in an accident when their daughter, Stella, was just 2 months old. Alone with a child, she decides to go to culinary school. She convinces her gay friend to move to Chicago with her to help her with Stella.
On the first day of her internship, she is approached by Drake, the restuarant's sexy manager. He approaches her 3 times that day, she says no each time. Although it's been 4 years since her fiance died, Molly hasn't let him go and hasn't dated anyone. He ends up convincing her to have dinner with him, OK, convincing probably isn't the right word, but it worked. Love grows from there.
Of course it isn't all smooth sailing for them. There's the ethical issue of her being an intern while he's the manager. She has to let go of her fiance. There's leaked pictures, possible love triangle, and a crazy ex-girlfriend, and amazing sex to hold it alltogether. Does it get any better than that?
Sex scenes are there, but they aren't described in detail and you get the idea they are absolutely perfect t.
I finished this book the afternoon I started it. It was hard to put down.
