I was sent an ARC of this book for an honest review so here goes.... :)

OMG WOW! This 3rd book is by FAR my favorite of the trilogy. And I LOVED the other two. But this one just blew me away. I loved that the book went back and forth between Molly and Drake. I loved seen both there sides :) The drama in this book was from start to finish. As you could guess it would be with the end of Kitchen Scandals when Molly noticed Denny with Stanley. But that was not the only drama in this book,chellooooo

I always love making it to the third book in a series. I know going in that I am going to get the closure I need, and hopefully, the happy ending I wanted since the beginning of book one. When I heard the title for the third book in the Riverside Trilogy, Kitchen Promises, I took Brooke Cumberland's title at its word and began Drake and Molly's happily ever after as soon as I started reading page one. And, true to that book title promise, Drake

Just when you thought the kitchen couldn't get any hotter, Brooke Cumberland turns it up a notch! Kitchen Promises is the perfect ending for the Riverside gang and my favorite book of the series. Not to mention everything is all wrapped up and competed with a perfect happily ever after.

Molly and Drake are hotter than ever, and the fact that she is pregnant and in her opinion as big as a house, doesn't stop them from being all over each other. Stella and Liam are still cute as a button, and throu

Brooke Cumberland did it again with the third book in her Riverside Trilogy. Normally when the same characters are in a three book series they are not as good as the first or even the second, but I must say this one was just as good as the first two. In this third book all the characters from the previous books are in this and Drake and Molly’s love for each other makes we smile just reading about them along with the suspense of what w

I have to say this installment is by far my favorite of the 3.
Brooke made me cry, laugh and cry some more.
Kitchen Promises picks up a few months after Kitchen Scandals leaves off.

Molly is a few months pregnant and Drake, boy he is in for a ride of a lifetime. Not only does Molly have the typical pregnancy temper, she has the raging sex hormones as well. We all know Drake can live up to that.

There is drama where we least expect it. Not going to say whe

I was lucky enough to read this as a beta after devouring Kitchen Affairs and Kitchen Scandals. The drama in Molly and Drakes lives is like a pasta facial...necessary but not necessarily desired. Poor Molly, hugely preggers with twins, and not supposed to be stressed out is living a life full of Love , Lust and Drama! Her past just won't let up...Spying Denny in her home at her engagement party pushes her over the edge. Will Denny spill her secret and ruin her and Drake? Well, to prevent spoile ...more

I was fortunate enough to receive an ARC from the Author, Brooke Cumberland.

Perfect ending to the Riverside Trilogy! Love, love, love Drake!! The first few chapters will have all readers swooning over him! Every single thing he did in this book had my stomach fluttering, and head tilting dreamily. I enjoyed reading more into Molly and Drakes story. I got some good laughs with Mollys pregnancy mood swings and bluntness. Molly and Drakes relationship matures and changes in different ways right bef

This is the third book in Brooke Cumberland’s Riverside trilogy. This is not a standalone novel so make sure you read the first 2 books before this one. You won’t be disappointed, this is a great trilogy.

We were left off in the 2nd book knowing that Denny was back. So along with Molly being pregnant she also has the stress of knowing Stanley Webber is her biological father and Denny the man who molested her as a child is in town. So the tension will definitely keep you enthralled, and the surpri

I was lucky to be a beta reader for Brooke and I have to say this is one of my favorites. From beginning to end it was non-stop action. I laughed, screamed and did the happy dance. There was drama and love and of course an HEA! Drake and Molly have so much chemistry you can't help but get sucked in. I fell in love with the entire series and especially the characters. The banter between Michael and Drake, even Molly and Michael lighten up the mood at all the

Well done Brooke! This whole series has given me such mixed feelings that it is amazing. In book one I fell in love with Drake and then by the end of the book I hated him. Book two I was so mad at him that I wanted to kick him in the nuts and then throw him on the bed the next minute. Well, book three I was so in love with Drake that I forgot everything he ever did wrong. He is so in love with Molly it isn't even funny. And Molly - well that girl has so drama! She has so much on her plate that i ...more

I love Molly and Drake! In Kitchen Promises, you get both Molly's point of view and Drake's just like in Kitchen Scandals. I love getting both views! You get to view Molly's pregnancy hormonal rants, desires and just how sexy Drake is! You also get to read Drake's desires and just how protective he is of his family.

Molly and Drake are one of those couples who have everything going for them. I love that they have this great blended family together. Molly has a daughter, Stella. Michael is such a

I was privileged enough to Beta read and then get an ARC of Kitchen Promises.

AHH OMG this kitchen is on FIRE!!! Brooke Cumberland has done it again. After reading Kitchen Affairs/Scandals I had to know what would happen to Molly and Drake. And I got my answer. This was by far my FAVORITE book in the Riverside Trilogy, and we got the PERFECT ending to it!!!

Kitchen Promises picks up not long after Kitchen Scandals leaves off. Molly is pregnant with twins and has agreed to marry her prince charmin

Review is for the series as a whole.
Kitchen Affairs was good. The story was sweet and romantic. The heroine Molly and her sweet little girl Stella were two great characters. Molly is an intern at a hotel restaurant that Drake runs. Molly is a loving, independent, at times though she can get a little down on herself. Molly fell in love with her high school sweetheart, Liam and got pregnant with Stella. Only to lose Liam to an accident. Molly is determined to be a chef. She took her best

This is such a great series and there is a part of me hoping that maybe there will be a spin off or even one of the other characters stories could be told ;) ,,,, we have already had a fair share of dramas within the first two books from this series and by the time you get to this book you will be wondering what else could possibly happen ,,,, well there is a whole lot more that can happen I assure you!!!,

I had been wanting to read this trilogy for a while and it just so happened that I was given the opportunity to receive an ARC copy yesterday. Timing couldn't be more perfect since I completed my last final for school which meant no boring textbooks and more time for some adult stories.

I literally read all 3 books in 2 days and even though I'm tired today, I didn't mind losing sleep one bit. This book ties up the trilogy perfectly and Drake remains flawless. I'm also a huge fan of dual POVs.

We finally have the last piece of this trilogy and I loved it. Kitchen Promises starts of with so much passion. Throughout the whole book I was laughing or crying or yelling. Brooke has poured so much into this book and it really shows.

We start with Molly and Drake awaiting the birth of their children, bring on the steamy scenes and the swoony Drake and this is a recipe for 100% sexy. These 2 lovebirds have a solids strong relationship. However, there is someone who does not want them happy and

Kitchen Promises is truly the perfect ending to Molly and Drake's story.

The story kicks off shortly after book 2. Drake and Molly are engaged and expecting twins! Molly's still struggling with her ordeal from Kitchen Scandals
On top of that, she's not having an easy pregnancy, her biological father Stanley is dating Drake's baby mama and oh yeah, Denny is Stanley's business partner.

Talk about drama! There was plenty of it in the final book in the Riverside Trilogy. Just like book 2, we are handed

Another very well written and hot novel from Brooke Cumberland! After reading the first two books of this series I desperately needed to know how their story would end. I needed them to be together, without all the drama (ok, well maybe some of it). Ms. Cumberland absolutely delivers in this third book. What is there not to love...Mr. Swoonworthy himself, Drake who will do ANYTHING to protect his new 'family' and kick-ass-love-o

Finally...after waiting what seems like forever...Molly and Drake are back and what I hoped would be an HEA for everyone (Michael included!). This book, the third in the series starts off calmly enough and we get to see just how wonderful a man Drake really is...especially when dealing with a very pregnant with twins Molly...LOL! But of course, the calm before the storm as once again we are drawn into some major drama, threatening messages, blackmail schemes and trying to keep Molly from going i ...more

This is the third and final book of the Riverside Trilogy. And I have to say... I LOVED EVERY BIT OF IT! Brooke does not disappoint at all. She ends the series with a bang. There is more scandal in this final book. But it brings to light something that, I think, needed to be said. Of Course the sex is hot, and even though Molly is pregnant, she still has those pesky hormones. Drake steps up and takes charge when he needs to, and of course Mi

Every "big" issue that came along was over and sone so quickly you almost didn't have time to grasp it as it was happening..

Kitchen Promises wraps up The Riverside Trilogy in a no-holds-barred fashion that rings true to Brooke Cumberland's style. There's all of the family dynamics that the audience has come to expect -Drake & Molly are making their merged family work for them with regular visitation from his son, Liam, who gets along swimmingly with Molly's daughter Stella while Molly is precariously carrying their twins- along with all the drama of unforgotten enemies, secret biological fathers, and dangers that ...more

The Riverside Trilogy has had me in tears, shouting at the books and not wanting to put them down. Brooke Cumberland has written a fantastic series. I would recommend this book and the whole series.

Drake and Molly have been though so much in the first two books. There are new obstacles and some old obstacles in Kitchen Promises. Drake is worried about Molly and her pregnancy. Molly is worried about Drake and the stress he is under. Michael seems to be the one thing holding this family together.

Brooke had a greatamount of twists and turns, and I think that she made you feel the pain of each of her people, including Trey, which is nice. I love that every detail is thought out!
