Preparation: Only the best chefs are selected to compete in the hit reality TV show Premier Chef. First, add one bakery owner—Staci Rowland, who’s out to prove that even the sweetest chef can wield a wickedly sharp knife. Then counter that sweetness with Remy Cruzel, a spicy and smokin’-hot Cajun chef, who’s looking to prove he’s more than his name....

Alguns anos, os reality shows povoam nosso sistema televisivo, aumentando cada dia mais a audiência para as produtoras e o entretenimento para o público.

Inspirada nesse universo, Katherine Garbera escreveu esse romance, que se passa num reality show gastronômico e durante o seu desenvolvimento dois competidores acabam se entregando à paixão.

Sabor é como o próprio nome sugere, cheio de sabores e paixões. Não tem como não se envolver com a atmosfera de competição e paixão que o livro traz, como ta

Sabor é o primeiro volume de uma colecção da Harlequin brasileira, uma das longaaaaas. Aqui, e só descobri quando terminei este ebook, cada livro pertence a uma autora diferente e em nada estão ligados. Penso que no máximo se repetem autoras, mas como até este momento só li três e investiguei o quarto...
Após a leitura da opinião da Mafi, este livro sempre esteve ali no cantinho dos "um-dia-tenho-que-o-ler" e quando estava num momento parado lembrei-me de i

Eu sou muito fã de qualquer talent show que envolva competição e claro que adoro o Masterchef (da Austrália, o da América é muitas intriguista). E este livro foi como ver uma temporada curta do Masterchef! :D

Jei esate matę realybės šou "Top Chef" ar lietuvišką kadaise rodytą virtuvės meistrų konkursą su L.Čepracku, lengvai suprasite apie ką sukasi ši knyga.
Mergina dalyvauja geriausių virtuvės šefų konkurse ir susipažįsta su vyru, kuris atvyko tokiu pat tikslu, tačiau slepia savo garsią pavardę. Užsimezga draugystė, kuri tuoj pat perauga į šį tą daugiau, menkutis meilės trikampis su buvusiuoju, kuris pasipainioja kelyje ir daug įmantrių valgių pavadinimų (be receptų).
Na, apetitą knyga gal ir sužadi
This was incredibly boring for a good 40% of the book. It did pick up and I found myself enjoying the story. It was just a little frustrating it took so long to get into.

I liked Remy, I was glad he wasn't playing her and I thought Staci was nice too. A little naive but nice.

Article first published as Book Review: Sizzle by Katherine Garbera on Blogcritics.

Sizzle is the first book by Katherine Garbera I've read, and based on this, I'll definitely be looking out for more.

It is a hot contemporary romance (emphasis on the hot) published by Harlequin Blaze. It tells the story of Staci Rowland and Remy Cruzel, two contestants on a reality TV show, Premier Chef. The title of the book could not be any more fitting, as this book really does sizzle.

From the very beginning, t

Sem gosto, sem sabor...

Eu tinha dado 3 estrelas para o livro, só porque gostei do reality shown de culinária, mas acabei tirando por causa do final.

Começei o livro bem animada, afinal o tema é diferente: casal se conhece e começa a namorar durante um reality show de culinária, no estilo Master Chef, que passa na tv a cabo. O começo foi bem interessante, mostrando a interação do casal com o programa, as provas culinárias e a competição, mas logo caiu na pasmaceira.
Apesar do tema interessante a a

Was hoping for some real food recipes.. I know, I know.. NO, no, no!

While the story is about a woman who participates on a reality type tv show about cooking.. the story does NOT go into detail about that portion of the storyline. Instead the story is more about the main character's sex life. Which is cooking way more than she does as a contestant on the fictional show!

This was a real switch for me.. as I do not read romance type books at all. It was a very fast paced, easy read. Those who lik

In Sizzle by Katherine Garbera Staci is a baker and a part owner of a cup-cake bakery. What she really wants though is to put her skills as a chef to use again, to prove to herself she still has what it takes, that her talent hasn’t been wasted. She does not want to be forever known as the cup cake girl! She let love come between her and her kitchen skills once before and she’s determined to never let that happen again.Read More

A compelling, entertaining read, especially for reality TV junkies. The copy edits left something to be desired, though. Missing commas and unnecessary capitalization pulled me out of the story a couple of times.

I loved this story! It had just the right amount of 'sizzle' for me and the romance was perfectly told. The setting is topical and well-researched and I felt drawn to both of the main characters. I would recommend this to you if you enjoy a steamy romance and you love cooking too :) ...more

Was a great book for the fans of top chef. But the ending sucked.
