No spoilers! Love HOT, sexy books w/a plot. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. I also review in exchange for books-lots of fun surprises!
A Taste of You is Book One in the Epicurean Series. It is about a young food photographer, Catherine, who is swept off her feet by a handsome billionaire. Sound familiar?
Catherine is a young widow having only been married six months before her husband was killed in a car accident. Of course she blames herself for this.
Billionaire, William has a secret past as well. It was dramatic and we are only given hints about it in this book with a huge cliffhanger.
It was okay at the beginning but became repetitious and drawn out. I am not even tempted to continue the series – there was a lot of mature situations but they became repetitive, in my opinion.
The narrator was adequate but not someone I will seek out in the future.
Note: Mature themes, Strong Language
Thank you for reading my review. I hope you found it helpful. If so, please select yes below his text. Thanks
Has a believable story without the over the top affectations of similar books. Graphic but believable intimate encounters, wrapped in the story of a likeable character.
Ending leaves you wanting for more.......which is the idea since there's a sequel.
One of the best female narrators in the business. Even carries you through the slow parts with compelling narration. Does the graphic scenes in an entertaining, not tawdry, way.
The love stories about naïve young women who are swept off their feet by lonely, handsome billionaires is growing tiresome, but this story and this narrator really put an interesting twist on it.
Talented photographer meets rich well-endowed man. Yes girlfriends, yet another writer trying to cash in on this corner of story-telling. Naturally both parties are laden down with emotional baggage and are stunningly attractive but the plot is so thinly spread that it is barely relevant. The narrator grinds through at a mind-numbingly slow pace so that even the sex scenes are a yawn-fest.
The ending is a cliff-hanger but I would rather watch paint dry than listen to another episode of this dull saga.
Wife, mother, romantic heroine.
A young, beautiful girl moves from California with her gay best friend to start over after tragedy. She literally bumps into a gorgeous, tall, dark billionaire who immediately is obsessed with her. She says no, but she can't resist him.
If you think "boy, that sounds just like the Crossfire series", you would be right. And the similarities don't end there. Their first sexual encounter is pretty much identical. Their first date is a formal event. Her relationship with her mom/dad is pretty much the same. There are long, drawn out sex scenes with too much dirty talk that no one would ever use. There is even a military type driver. Sigh.
I couldn't get into the characters, or find any chemistry between them. It felt too forced too soon. It needed a little more romance, less sex.
this book was a complete retelling of Bared to You with the character names changed.
write something original
Sorry, not for me
Boooooooooring. Even the food she was describing did not seem appealing to me. I can't believe I bothered to finish this book. I should have pushed my plate away.
Great story, well written and performed. Honest emotion. Relatable relationships. And Hot, hot, hot and yummy romance scenes. The food scenes made my mouth water, too!
Although it was typical, I really enjoyed this love story. William and Kat need each other very much. Good food.
loving this series and can't wait for no 3 , please hurry .... well worth the read and thoughtly enjoyable
