Monster Chef, Margaret McHeyzer


Monster Chef, Margaret McHeyzer
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
Genre:  Romance, Erotica
I’d read the amazon sample and this looked really promising – the love/hate relationship looked like it would deliver some sparks and sharp wit. It did for a while, but very quickly they moved from hate to full on romance, and for me I needed a bit more development, a slower progression.
I didn’t really feel I got to know either of them as people, their likes, dislikes, a sense of them, not just as names on a page. I didn’t connect with them. Then there’s Emma, and what an incredibly precocious little girl she is, wise beyond her years at times and I felt she was more like a seven year old going on seventeen in what she said and how she acted…
I just couldn’t see how two broken-hearted people, grieving so deeply could suddenly fall in love. The fact they started off badly was working for me, the are clearly two very strong minded and opinionated types so it was clear sparks would fly but it moved too soon for me, I didn’t feel they really had a connection other than lust. I think I needed a slower build up, and a bit more day to day stuff. Ah well, there are some fabulous five star reviews so not everyone feels as I do, just shows once again that we all enjoy different styles of read.

Stars: Three , a fun but one off read for me.
