A stalker was the last things rising TV chef Reggie Caldwell though she was going to have to deal with but apparently it was becoming an issue. Such an issue that her barely assistant sister got in contact with a personal bodyguard to hand the situation. Enter Gabe Bankovic.

The problem with this bodyguard is that he has history with Reggie. Hot, steamy, sweaty, unresolved history that's going to complicate things.

Even more complicated is the list of suspects and the fact Gabe isn't too sure this

Good and talented writer, but too many plot problems.

I enjoyed reading about all characters except Natalie. Hot and well done sex scenes. My problems were with the plot, which used my pet peeve of creating conflict through vague communication and inaccurate assumptions. In addition, the author did not make Gabe's actions realistic and believable. Some examples follow in Spoilers below.

Sexual language: strong. Number of sex scenes: ten. Setting: current day San Francisco area with some trave

DELICIOUS is a lip-smackin' load of hot fun that leans more on the romance side with a tad bit of erotic thrown in for good measure! Its a great escape that will leave you rooting for the heroine all the way to the end!

Reggie Caldwell is a self-trained chef who becomes an overnight sensation in the world of food. When the fame she has desperately worked so hard to achieve is finally attained and she believes her life is on the right track. Reggie's popularity soars largely because of her friendl

Super fun modern romance. A little dated (people fax things and go to internet cafes, and middle class people can afford to rent decent apartments in San Francisco) but the characters are engaging, and the story charmed me. One note, I would have been happier if they had gone with a different cover. This one makes it look like a sex fest, and its not that at all. I had to take a break from reading this because I wouldn't take it on a plane with me where people might see it.

The book's alright, but not special, certainly nothing that I'd ever think about reading again.
The sex scenes are hot, which I appreciated, but the rest of it lacked the suspense that keeps me on edge that I usually get when I read books with a stalker character.
The other thing that really bothered me about the book is that it seemed like a total and unforgivable attack on thin/healthy people; almost every chapter in the book made people (specifically women) who eat healthy and exercise look stu
May 03, 2015 Janice rated it it was ok  ·  review of another edition
Hate the Lolita-ish cover. Has nothing to do with the very soft erotic story. More weak thriller than romantic or sexy. Hot scene with secondary characters that didn't move the plot along.

It was a cute story of a one night stand and became more as the story went on.

Good story. Editing issues as usual for this author.

This was a very fun romance with a bit of a mystery thrown in. The mystery provides the set-up for the encounter between Reggie, an up and coming chef with her own cable show and a new cookbook, and Gabe, her bodyguard. They had had a one-night stand in Hawaii about a year before (without even exchanging their info apparently). I like the slow renewal of romance and trust between them - it is a nice, fluffy, fun read.

I didn't like the ending at all!!! There needed to be more, why would the book end in some type of cliffhanger? What about the future? I wanted to see what happened with Gabe and Reggie!! :(
This was good, but not special. Too many cliches and a "big misunderstanding", so it could have been much better. I did like the author's style and will try her work again.
Sep 10, 2013 Sarah rated it it was amazing
This book has ok but thought it would be better as I love the writer. The story's good and has romance but a lot of miscommunication goes on and they struggle to make it work.

Like so many romance readers, my first romance novel was by Kathleen Woodiwiss - The Flame and the Flower, to be exact. I was thirteen. I spent the next month working my way through her entire back list. Shortly thereafter I discovered Judith McNaught, Johanna Lindsey, Karen Robards, Catherine Coulter, Shirlee Busbee among others, and devoured their lavish historical epics full of overbearing alph ...more
