On the Steamy Side is book 2 in Louisa Edward's Recipe for Love series and it's just as good if not better than the first one! Lilah Jane Tunkle moves to New York City to get away from her lackluster life in rural Virginia and thanks to her girlhood friend, Grant, gets a job bussing tables at Market (the trendy Manhattan restaurant featured in book 1).

Devon Sparks is a celebrity chef whose good looks and playboy ways have made him one of America's hottest bachelors, but it's been a long time since Devon has actually been in the kitchen. When Adam Temple (the hero from book one) goes on vacation, he asks Devon to take over his restaurant.

When Devon and Lilah first meet, sparks fly (whew!) The next day, realizing they have to work together, they decide to keep their relationship professional. But when the 10 year-old son Devon barely knows shows up at the restaurant's doorstep, Lilah convinces Devon to take him in. The boy's mother has been arrested for a DUI and has gone into rehab. Devon doesn't know anything about taking care of a child, so he hires Lilah to be the boy's nanny.

Devon is my absolute favorite kind of hero- the wounded alpha male. And Lilah is an every woman who gets under his skin and teaches him what's important in life. I really loved this story. It's sexy, warm, romantic and the food descriptions are fantastic. I finished it in one day!
