GOd this novel! This novel made my whole damn week, and I couldn't stop smiling afterwards.

Damn, I miss Curtis and Erin so much already..

Anyway, let me tell you why I found this novel, the most amazing thing ever after chocolate.

1. The writing - pretty fast paced, and so smooth, I loved every minute of it. Thoroughly invested, and never even bored for once. No grammar problems, totally a smooth ride.

2. The characters - Love

If you asked me what's the best recipe to write a perfect Rom Com, then I would strongly suggest you to ask K.D. Robichaux to give you a cooking lesson because boy did she knock this one out of the park. I've devoured this amazing book like a four-course gourmet meal. The storyline was very unique and entertaining, the dialogue funny and witty and the lead characters multi-layered, intriguing and endearing people you would love to be best friends with in real life. I absolutely adored the beauti ...more

This was as cute as it’s cover! This was my first book from Robichaux and I would read from her again. I loved the whole aspect of their meet-cute. Meeting at the grocery store and her being a guest/contestant on his show? Adorable!

Curtis and Erin were cute together and had some awesome chemistry. They fell into an easy relationship and the banter between them was hilarious and flirty.

While I did enjoy the romance and characters, I couldn’t give it more than 3 stars because I couldn’t stay fully

Loved!

I used to love watching Take Home Chef so when I read the blurb on this, I knew I had to read it. What a whirlwind romance! I went from laughing to crying to swooning and back again. And that epilogue was just EVERYTHING. Highly recommend!

I loved how it started! Their meet cute is just swoon worthy and thrills the foodie and FoodNetwork fan in me. BUT I have to say that after they cook together, I began to lose interest in the story.

I’m not so sure why. *shrugs*

It sort of dragged in places (like when they went on the ghost tour). And went on fast forward in others when I would’ve wanted more depth.

Erin also began to annoy me. And more importantly, Curtis just felt like he was so obviously written by a woman — some of his though

Parts of this story I really loved. I loved the connection between Erin and Curtis. The parts of this book that were centered on that initial attraction were really hot, and sexy. The cooking scene in her house was perfection and I was looking forward to watching their relationship and their attraction develop. Little did I know the bulk of the rest of the book was going to happen in one really long night.

Which brings us to the parts of this one that didn't work f

Triggers for infertility, surprise pregnancy. (There is a believable medical explanation for the pregnancy.) Also includes adoption and quite a bit of nausea from morning sickness so maybe don’t read if if you’re not feeling well. This book had nothing bad happen in it. They work through their struggles together, love on each other, and have an adorable meet cute. Great, feel good, read.

Dishing Up Love was exactly what my heart and mind needed at the moment. A light, sweet, sexy and highly entertaining story about a hot, famous chef Curtis Rockwell and a sassy, nerdy psychologist Erin Bazzara. To say that I loved this book would be a total understatement. I devoured it like the perfect dessert, leaving me desperately wishing for more of this yumminess. Kudos to K.D. Robichaux for writing such a brilliant story and portraying New Orleans and it's history so beautifully and charm ...more

This book was such a pleasant surprise! I can’t believe how I stumbled on it, and literally jumped my reading queue just because I loved the cover. Someone who read the ARC had left an exceptional review, and it just jumped at me.
And boy, am I glad that I followed my heart.
Ok now to my reading experience.
The book for me started a bit slow, and while I’ve always liked reading, and watching shows about NOLA(Shows like the original was set in New Orleans), I was a bit hit by the tourist informatio

I was introduced to K.D. Robichaux when she wrote Scary Hot in ARR's Until world and I was crazy impressed with her writing. Well she's got a brand new book out and oh my goodness y'all! I loved it and these characters so very much!

This is a super cute ROM COM Romance. This is a little bit of a follow on to No Trespassing. Both books are completely separate, you don't need to read one without reading the other. 

In this book we have Erin Bazzara, who is a psychologists. She has her own practice in New Orleans. She's always lived there, and loves her city. She's more of a homebody - likes to do what she likes. She goes out with her girlfriends but not a lot. She has had a recent heartbreak, and is not ready to put herself ou

This book was absolutely amazing! I have to admit to a brief girlie squealing moment when I realized who the book was about! (I'm not sharing, you will just have to read it to make the connection!) But afterwards, I tucked into the book, and got to reading. I'm so glad I did! This couple is so sweet, absolutely perfect for each other, and it is set in the most amazing city ever!

Erin is a psychologist, and gets to help people through her job. And she loves that. But life isn't perfect, and she l

Ah, KD Robichaux did it again. A perfect story written in the perfect place. Returning to NOLA, where we're first introduced to Erin in No Tresspassing, is a breath of fresh air. This book is unique with the way the story is told. There is some LOL moments, lots of history about New Orleans, and of course romance. It's a perfect mix. And someone needs to tell the U.K. to update their surgical panties, because all we get is passion killer paper knickers. Please god, we need the surgical panties t ...more

Oh my goodness, this book was filled with so many aww moments. I felt myself sighing throughout the entire story. I absolutely feel in love with Erin and Curtis and now know I MUST go read Emmy and Dean’s story.

Erin is living her life in New Orleans. She misses her best friend Emmy but is so happy for her and Dean. She goes to work and does what she loves, helps other people. She just happens to be in the right time and the right place for fate to step in and take her carefully constructed life

(All I can say is "pick me, pick me!) What Curtis didn't expect to take home from the grocery store is the woman of his dreams.

I’m so in love with this book!!!!!!!! I adore Curtis and Erin individually and as a couple! This book deserves more than 5 stars!

NOLA is my favorite city to visit so it’s no wonder Curtis got love struck the moment his eyes landed on Erin. Their chemistry was palpable and set the book on fire. Their witty banter had me cracking up!

You will absolutely fall in love with these characters and wish that the book never ended!
