Feel the Heat (Hot In the Kitchen)

 

Feel the Heat. Kate Meader
Review from Jeannie Zelos Book reviews.
Romance – always good for a bit of escape into my mind so having had a few paranormals I wanted something different and chose this. Lili is a great character, full of fun but held back by all the family responsibilities heaped on her. Cara – big sister, has arranged for her TV show starring British chef Jack to film at last minute at the family restaurant. Of course she’s hoping that Lili will get together with Jack who has a bit of a playboy rep, thinking Lili needs to have a bit of fun. It all backfires though – as someone who had bad self image from childhood teasing I can really empathise with Lili when she gets to be the focus of Jack fans on twitter, face-book et al…and its not done in a nice way but a really unpleasant bitchy way. She’s hurt and upset, Jack sees that and he’s hurt too – he doesn’t want her to see Jack the famous chef, but Jack the man. They dance around a bit, they’re both clearly very attracted to each other, and there are some scorching scenes when they get together. He wants to date her, she’s scared to, even the little action they’ve had has caused her problems with family and her self image, they connect briefly, then all crashes down before slowly picking up again. Its a very emotive book, full of sensuality and steam – not just from the kitchen!
Great characters, good plot-line so why isn’t it five star from me? Well, I’m not actually sure of that myself, I just know that I didn’t really get lost in the book, but was always aware of what else going on. In a five star read I’m so engrossed the house could be on fire and I’d not notice…and with this book I didn’t have problems putting it aside to do other things. It was good, very good but just not that five star excellent. I’m quite cross with myself that I can’t explain why too – sorry, I hate it when readers do that and here I am doing the same 😦 On the plus side its excellent value at just £1.49 for a terrific 384 pages!
Stars: four.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
