Lena’s Review

Can a woman chef and a great winery owner find love with one another?
Eva Raines loves cooking and baking; it’s her whole life. Life to her goes by quick when she is working with food for there are no problems of men leaving her. That is until an appointment brings Gabriel Abbott into her life and somehow into her heart.

She always knew food was to a man’s stomach but something about Gabe brings out more in her. For the first time she feels safe, cherished and loved. Eva knows she is different from the other women he has dated before, but she cannot stay away from him. Something about him makes her feel more of a woman than just a chef. Only thing is, can she keep her man when an evil woman wants her away from Gabe. Can her food keep her man in her heart?

Gabriel Abbott is a man who loves money and women, with no time for love in his life. So it comes as a shock that he cannot forget about his little chef. Hearing her voice was like a breath of fresh air but meeting her in person just knocks him away. He’s dated beautiful women before and a country girl like Eva is so unlike his style. Yet he cannot forget about her no matter how hard he works. He knows his flavor of the month Stephanie wants him, but something about Eva seems pure. Eva completes him in every way and a day without her is killing him. Can he convince her that a little chef like her and a winery owner like him belong to one another?

One word for this book is WOW from the beginning to the end. I can’t decide who I loved the most for everybody in this book was awesome from Gabe, Eva, and Jason to even the evil Stephanie. The food in this book was delicious and the passion between Eva and Gabe, beautiful. This is the first book I have read by Julia Barrett and definitely won’t be the last. This author is talented in bringing the story to life from the food, passion and secondary characters all in one book. Great job!
