really liked it

When Claire, a young and ambitious cook, decides to audition for Extreme Cuisine, she has no idea how much her life will change in just nine weeks. 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. Her biggest surprise comes when her celebrity chef crush, Aiden Maxim, becomes a fellow competitor. Sparks fly between the two both on and off the screen, and her crush quickly grows for the kitchen bad boy. As the competition continues, everything seems to be going well for Claire. She holds her own in the competition and gets along with the other chefs, including Shep Thompson, Extreme Cuisine’s host and chef to the stars.

*explicit content*
Secrets, lies, and drama abound in this inside story of a reality cooking show. Claire is kind and naïve, way over her head to be with a group so underhanded and conniving to ensure their own win, at any cost. Claire falls for Aiden, his wit and charm, and is blind to anyone who says anything against him. Even though she just met him, she believes his insight to Shep. Shep is nothing but kind to Claire, offering her assistance and a word of warning about Aiden. I do wish Shep would have spoken much sooner and Claire not put so much trust into a person she just met and is now sleeping with, but she is too trusting.

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.
