The Book Junkie Reads . . .
Claire and two hot sexy chefs. Who wouldn't enjoy the intensity of the ride and make the most of it? A cooking competition would not be the place to spread your wings into a new love. Claire found this out the hard way. But in the end she gets her man and learns a lesson. ...more

I have to admit, reading this book reminded me of watching one of my favorite reality shows, Master Chef. It was really like having a behind the scenes look into how the competition can go. I was very excited and could wait to see how it all turned out! And I must say, I loved the ending!!

This is an ok read if you have nothing else to do with your time. It is just like a reality TV show, very predictable and full of annoying and idiotic people.

Loved it!!

I loved the fact this had Unraveling the Billionaire as a bonus. And loved how it ended with Claire and Shep's story. I think we can all agree that we have made mistakes and I'm just glad her story ended the way it did. Alice Ward is so awesome with her stories, another great written story.

So I haven't read Unraveling the Billionaire yet, which I guess is where Claire is first introduced. But after reading this book I'm definitely going back to get her friends' stories! This book is definitely hot and if you can't stand the heat, you'll need to stay out of Claire's kitchen!!

Claire is the last single girl among her friends, and after finding out that her boyfriend of years has cheated on her, she's ready to embrace life and start a new adventure. The adventure comes when she lands
1.5-2 stars... maybe
Rating: MA for steam and sexual talk and situations

OK... there are so many things in this book that annoy and frustrate me, I'm afraid this will be a rant. I'll try to make it constructive.

I don't expect all the details in books to be "real", especially depending upon the genre - there is the suspension of disbelief in just about every book to some extent. But a "contemporary" romance... I expect the premise to be somewhat believable. There are lots of examples of reality sho

Having recently gotten out of a long term relationship, she is ready for a new chapter, and maybe even a hot fling or two. Though she’s never been formally trained as a chef, Claire holds her own in the competition which pairs amateurs and professional chefs side by side.

I did receive this book as a free ARC copy in exchange for an honest review.

I did not read the other previous books. This can be read as a standalone. I think knife you read the others in the series you may know more about the characters.

This story has a good story of a cooking reality show with a love story. The main character, Aiden, Shep & Claire. Aiden & Claire have a great start to a friendship. Although their relationship moves at warp speed they get along very well. Aiden warns Claire ab

Recipe for Lust by Alice Ward

If you read Unraveling the Billionaire by Alice Ward then you might remember Lauren's friend, Claire, who's heart was broken after finding out her childhood sweetheart was cheating on her.
In this story, Claire is chosen to compete in a reality cooking show and ends up having not just 1 but 2 guys from the show vying for her attention! Who will she choose?! & she quickly finds a friend in fellow competitor, Elle, but as the story goes on though, Claire finds out the h

Really loved this book and what was so good was I got two great books in one. I had not read the first book in this series so that was a plus I got to read it at the end of this book.

Claire is in a reality cooking show and man is it a doozie. You have to read this one to get all the scoop. I was so surprised at some of the turns and not so much at some of the twists. IT was a good book. Lots of heat.

The second story is Lauren and Asher's and that is the one I was wondering about all the way thru

Good competition chef story

I am a newer reader to Alice Ward. After reading one of her other books, I was hooked into her writing style. I feel like I could read a few of the books over and over. This book had bonus stories included, which I was glad since I felt like I was missing the story behind the main characters friends, but it didn't effect the main characters story. Loved it.
Overview. Claire had a rough year. She broke up with her childhood boyfriend. Then decided to fall in love with c

Love it!!!

I absolutely live this series and I'm so happy that everything has worked out for Claire finally. Seeing Asher, Lauren, Jackson and Kennedy are all still a big part of the family was reassuring and that they're all happy with families of their own was amazing. Thank you for another amazing read! Can't wait to see what's next.
