Caution: Filling Is Hot

3.77  ·  Rating details ·  43 ratings  ·  19 reviews
Some men should come with a warning.

Here's a recipe to share with friends. Take one prickly demonstration cook, handle carefully. Add one lonely widower, slightly beaten. Mix gently. Fold in two six-year-olds, one at a time to temper the batter and avoid scrambling. Then finally, add the mother with an agenda—but just a dash, because she's spicy. Whip into stiff peaks then

Caution: Fill is Hot has everthing a woman is looking for in a romance and, as the title indicates, the filling in this novel is hot!

When a good-looking, widowed father of two sees the woman he wants in his life, he pull out all the stops to pursue her. Even his children and his mother are ready to assist. Too bad the woman he desires thinks he a jerk.

You'll enjoy reading this fun, sexy story about Chad and Piper and what fate is cooking up for them. Just remember, Caution: Filling is Hot.

Sweet and spicy! The chemistry between Chad and Piper is explosive from the moment their eyes meet. This story will have you believing in love at first sight, and cheering for Chad in his quest to earn Piper's trust and love. Though I fell in love with Chad, I empathized with Piper's reluctance because she felt like a friend. I especially loved the family scenes; they were real and fun. Tara Mills achieved the perfect mix of sweet and spicy in this fun romance.

I don’t read much contemporary romance anymore, leaning more toward darker paranormal, SF&F and its various sub-genres. But Caution: Filling is Hot, just turned that around, and I’m heading back to the bookstore to see what I’ve been missing! I loved this book. It was an absolute joy to read.

Piper has been burnt by love and isn’t looking for a relationship any time soon. Then bam…gorgeous widower Chad and his precious twins barrel into her life. Try as she might to just stay friends with Chad, P

If everyone has ever watched 'Around the World in 80 Plates', I have watched and learned in order to make a successful restaurant, the front of the house, the back of the house and the dishes must make the customers happy...and 'Caution: Filling is Hot' made me happy.

Piper, a chef, getting over a bad relationship, is pursued by Chad, a contractor and single father of two, who not only knows how to build for a living, begins building on his interest with Piper. When Piper puts the halt on Chad's

The name of the heroine says it all. Piper Frost is coolly self-protective on the outside, but piping hot on the inside. She is reserved for a good reason: Her last boyfriend hurt her and she does not want to be burned again. Chad is a widower with two young children. He is extremely handsome, but also very kind. The way he treats his kids melts Piper's heart. Piper insists on being just friends. Chad wants much, much more. The sexual tension between them builds and builds until finally . . . it ...more

Kudos to author Tara Mills for creating such a "visual" treat. I was there with Piper and Chad every step of the way; I could "see" them, their town, Chad's house, and Piper's shop with such clarity. Tara led me on a merry chase as I relentlessly turned page after page to find out what would happen next. The characters are enchanting, the dialogue fresh and witty, the scenes a wonderful mix of comedy, warmth, good fun, and heartbreak, with several pulse-pounding love scenes thrown in to boot!

This was a fun, contemporary love story full of hot love scenes and witty banter. It moved quickly and kept me engaged throughout the story.
Tara's ability to give her characters personality was wonderful. They were diverse, emotional, likeable, and familiar. She will make you laugh and cry all the way through.

Loved it!! Wow this was a great book. It had a mixture of so many good things. It had comedy and romance and a bit of erotica. I loved the story line and the writing was so good. I didn't want to put it down!

If there were a dictionary entry for "great summer read," "Caution: Filling is Hot" would be the definition you'd find there. It's the story of how a man who finds the woman he's been looking for just when she's decided she's taking a break from relationships, gets her to change her mind. And it's a good one.

Chad Thomas is ready to get a personal life back after losing his wife in a car crash and raising his twin son and daughter by himself . Piper Frost is a chef who has just come off the relat

This was one of the most fun reads ever! A set of twins dead set on bringing two people together, add in their grandmother to help.

And the very unsuspecting couple each trying to do their own mix of flirting with pleasure and avoiding contact.

The book had all kinds of super hot romance, fun and totally off the hook craziness that had me laughing out loud, which was no surprise as this author is one that knows how to not only tickle your funny bone but, send it into a full blown can't stop laug

I was given a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
With that being said… I got halfway through this book and just couldn’t stop reading! I read this book overnight… lost sleep, and haven’t done that in quite a while so it was both a blessing and a curse!! Haha!

Piper Frost is a happy single woman living her life after her last… idiot of a boyfriend… (read it, you’ll understand)… anywho.. Piper meets Chad and..well… she kinda pulls a can of pepper spray on him. But at

Once again Tara has blown me away by another great story!
Piper Frost has reservations when it comes to men after her last relationship, and Chad Thomas is recovering from a broken heart after his wife died in a car crash. After stumbling into her cookery class he just knows he has to have her. Piper on the other hand tries to deny her attraction to him, jumping to conclusions about the kind of man he is.
The sparks fly as Chad goes to any lengths to persuade her he’s the right guy for him, incl

I read this book during the winter and I couldn't help but wish, the entire time, that I was reading Caution: Filling is Hot on a lazy summer day. Between the cheeky kids, the delicious cuisine and the light-hearted banter, I definitely found myself desiring to lounge by a pool with a margarita in my hand. Anyway, I digress. Mills writes with the kind of wit that is sure to entertain. If you love family romances, you will adore Caution: Filling is Hot. And just as the title promised. It was.

Humorous, sexy, and perfect! I love Tara' s characterization. Piper and Chad come to life on the page. Not to mention her fantastic use of supporting characters. The story comes together into a wonderful and entertaining read!

I like to cook, and this is a wonderful novel about that - and so much more. Nice cozy feel to it. I curled up on a rainy day and enjoyed this book so much.

In one word? Cute. This book was cute. I'll admit I was put off in the beginning with the authors writing style but I eventually got used to it. Mostly it felt very fast paced and often swapped POV's every other paragraph which was sometimes frustratingly confusing. Otherwise once the beginning of the book settled and I adjusted what to expect it went fine.

Steam level would prob rate at about a solid 6, I think. A few sexual terms here and there and full detailed sex scenes but nothing overly gr

Piper is ready to think about herself for a while after her ex drained her dry.

Chad is a widower with twin six-year-olds needing to get back in the game.

For Chad, it's love at first sight. It takes a while for Piper to admit it was for her too.

The rollercoaster ride this storybook me on to find their HEA was fun, fast, and incredibly thrilling. I will definitely be reading more of Tara Mills in the future.
