Me when I started this book –


Me when I finished it –


Having waited patiently for a year for the third book in Robbie Terman’s A Perfect Recipe Series, I was so happy to finally get to read Jenna and Luke’s story. You were given a little tease of the potential fireworks that could go off between them in Some Like It Sinful and I couldn’t wait to see how this second-chance love story would play out for them in Some Like it Sizzling.

Jenna has always been the cool self contained girl of the trio and it was no exception in this book. Problem being the author did such a good job of making her an unlikeable snob in the first 60% of the book that by the time she loosened up, I didn’t really care either way anymore. I think what really was the final nail in the coffin of this one was the fact that Luke, albeit in response to Jenna’s behavior and attitude towards him, turned from a sweet, hot, dirty Fireman into a bit of a douche as the story progressed as well. There were glimmers between them, but one or the other would then do something that turned the sweet to sour pretty much every time.

"That hand is lethal…"

"Wait til you feel my mouth."

The big secret that Jenna nursed over the 15 years they were apart, and the reasons why she left without telling him… Felt like a total cop out to me if I am honest, I was expecting more, I wanted more, the characters deserved more.

The one thing I did love about this book was the side story between Olivia and Riley, I kind of wish they had had a bigger part in the book. Older woman, younger guy, sexy times…



In fact, I would like them to have had their own book.

I like the authors writing style, the previous books in the series were extremely enjoyable; I just struggled to connect with the characters myself, or feel much of a connection between the two of them for most of the book.

Maria Rose It was a three for me, based on the fact that I liked Olivia. Wish there had been more of her story!

Thanks Ladies xx


Maria Rose I didn't feel the chemistry between Jenna and Luke and her pouting really annoyed me. The Olivia parts were definitely the best.
