This book is EVERYTHING! Hilarious characters, and entertaining as hell plot. A total reading jackpot!

Charlotte is the general manager of a restaurant and on the very first day she applied for this job, she literary crashed into love. A delicious love that tastes so sweet but also bitter at times. That is because she has to work with Oliver Pense, the gorgeous and ultra talented chef that cooks a her restaurant.

Oliver and Charlie have the best friendship; they both love food, they both speak sarcasm, and the sexual tension between them burns red-hot every time they are in the same room together. The only problem is that Oliver is engaged to be married to another woman. Even though they both can feel the attraction, neither of them has ever crossed the line, not only because they work together, and respect Oliver's fiance, but also because they care a lot about their friendship. So all odds are against them.

Even though the story has angst, it is also very funny. These characters are always getting into all kinds of trouble and it's hilarious to read. The best word I can find to describe this book is delicious, mostly because it's meant to be devoured. And because there is so many layers to the story, and the romance is so sweet I could almost taste it.

If you haven't tried this author before, The Work Wife is the perfect opportunity. C.j Martin and her talented pen really transport the reader inside the story, almost making you feel like an actual part of it. I highly recommend this book, I can see everyone who reads it absolutely loving it.
