Series: Love and Games #1
Published by Entangled: Bliss on July 8th, 2013
When chef Colby Robicheaux returned home to New Orleans to save her family restaurant, the last person she expected to reconnect with was her brother’s best friend and her childhood crush. As tempting as a sugar-coated beignet, Jason is one dish she doesn’t want to taste. Colby is counting down the days till she can leave the place where her distrust of love and commitment originated and go back to Vegas.
Fire captain Jason Landry isn’t looking for love, either. He knows he should focus on finding the perfect mother for his daughter, but when he first sees Colby, all grown up and gorgeous, he can’t help but be drawn to her. And when she suggests a no-strings-attached fling, Jason doesn’t want to say no.
As their relationship grows more intense, Colby finds that Jason isn’t as easy to leave behind as she thought. Could turning up the heat on something real be worth the possibility of getting burned?
This was my second book by Rachel Harris and let me tell you, I loved it! Taste the Heat is the first book in the Love and Games series, but can also be read as a stand alone. If you’re looking for a read to make you feel all kinds of happiness – this is the book to read! I couldn’t help but feel all kinds of warm fuzzies after I finished reading this book, not to mention…you’ll swoon over Jason!
I first fell in love with her characters when I read Seven Day Fiancé (#2 in the Love and Games series) and I just knew I had to go back and read this one. Her descriptions of the cajun food not only makes me hungry, but I would love to have the opportunity to visit New Orleans and see all it has to offer for myself. Reading about it has been amazing, but I am more than ready to experience it for myself.
The characters are the kind you can’t help but love. Colby is the kind of female lead you can’t help but cheer for and hope that she gets her happy ending. As for Jason, prepare yourselves to swoon and fall madly in love with all he has to offer. He is the epitome of a southern gentleman. Plus, he is a firefighter and his whole world revolves around his pre-teen daughter. As a single father, he wants nothing but to provide and make his daughter Emma happy. I just love Emma too. Her spunky personality is contagious and you can’t help but admire her for wanting her dad to be happy. She is quite the mischievous girl who has an agenda all of her own when it comes to her dads love life.
Taste the Heat is a feel-good romance about falling in love when you least expect it. This book is sure to set your taste buds on fire and add a little spice to your life.
5 out of 5 stars!
