Publisher's Summary

Ingredients: One seriously hot chef for a boss plus one sassy employee who always says what's on her mind equals a sexy and flirty romance about trying to resist the irresistible....

Finn King. He's sexy, single, successful, and hotter than anything that comes out of his kitchen. His focus lies on the perfection of his food and becoming a celebrity chef. Women and love aren't on his list of priorities until in walks Hailee with her smart mouth and flaming red hair. She challenges him at every turn, and he just can't get enough of it. 

Hailee Ferris doesn't believe in fairy tales or happily ever afters. She learned that the hard way a long time ago. All she wants is to save up enough money to move away from the small town she's felt trapped in her whole life. When she lies to get the job at Finn's restaurant, the one thing she wasn't counting on was falling for her boss. 

When one accidental kiss turns their worlds upside down, cooking isn't the only thing heating up the kitchen....

(This audiobook is a stand-alone romance in the Men of Evansdale County series. No cheating, no cliff-hangers, and a guaranteed HEA. Bonus content included: extra epilogue and sneak peek chapter for the next title in this series)

I want a sexy chef!

Seriously! Where can I get one? I need to find one just like Finn King!

Ok, back to the book. I went into this book with a really weird question... What in the world is a foodie novel? I had no idea going in but after reading this, I feel the need to find more in this category. Hot men making hot food? Sign me up!!! This is a great addition to the series. I really enjoyed how this story overlapped with the first book. I cannot wait for the rest to come to audio!

The narration was amazing!

A Delightfully Delicious Romance!

This was a fun, sexy romance with all the right ingredients. It has a hot, sexy chef, a sassy employee that gets past all his defenses, witty banter, and lots of heat, in and out of the kitchen! Finn and Hailee have a funny and awkward meet cute. But once they connect over the intricacies of food, the sparks really fly. They have more than fod in common, both having a rough beginning and then raised by their grandmothers. They really connect on so many levels. I like how they worked through many of their issues despite having plans that would take them in different directions. The food references were interesting and made me hunger for more. I loved all the secondary characters making this romance even more fun and heartwarming. I enjoyed Alan Taylor's deep, seductive voice that easily lured me into this story, bringing it to life.

Cute Story!

This is the second book in The Men of Evansdale County Series. This story can be listened as a standalone.
This was a cute story with a great HEA. I love the epilogues! I received this free review copy audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

A culinary experience


A culinary experience between the head chef and the hostess. Food is a language of love and it’s one of the main elements in this book that brings these two characters together.

Performance: Alan Taylor is not a voice I’m familiar with in the audio world. He is the sole performer in this book. I actually prefer a dual or duet performance. In this case having two separate narrators would improve the the quality of this book. I couldn’t get over my disappointment at listening to Alan perform the female characters.
I love to experience new narrators, however I need the voice of the narrator to sell me on the performance. Just as it’s the authors job is to sell me on the writing. Alan’s voice was not a suitable match to portray the female characters in this story.
I easily lost track of which character I was listening to having one narrator performing both. Too many unnecessary details in the conversation dialogue.
Solo performance is not ideal for this type of story. When sex scenes become hot and steamy this solo performance is awkward.

Story: Finn is Hailee’s boss, yet he can’t stop thinking about her in a sexual way.
An insta-love romance between the head chef and palette taster. Personally there was too much information about food and cooking. I know this is a book about a chef, yet I didn’t need a lesson on flavors. I appreciate creating an original story, yet it still had that push n pull trope.
This was an instructional story in regards to food, recipes, and dining.
This is a story how they fall in love together despite the obstacles between business and pleasure.

Overall: This story made me aware that I’m not a fan of characters who run away with fear about falling in love. Hailee is the type of character who exudes every characteristic that annoys me in books.

How We Fall

Another great love story I this series. Although it is the second in the series it can be read as a stand-alone. That being said, you really don’t want to miss out on the first either. Watching these two struggle with their own self worth as well as sad history was heartbreaking. I am very pleased to see their happy ever after and the second epilogue was fantastic!

can't help but love a sexy chef

Ahhhh Fiiiin!!! Swoon! After reading Dean's story, where Finn 'dropped in', I was sooo looking forward to Finn's story...and I was not disappointed. Lots of steam, but so glad that Finn wasn't a sexy, jerk, manwh*re!
On her first day as a hostess at a fine dining restaurant, Hailee's first task is to go the market with a list of items that she's never heard of before. Luckily, she runs into a hottie who helps her gather everything. She explains that it's her first day, she has no experience working at a restaurant...and that she heard that the chef is a hard@$$. I'm sure you can imagine that probably was not a good idea...to share with a total stranger. To Hailee's surprise, when she arrives back at the restaurant, the chef is non other than the hottie who helped her in the market. Instead of firing her for lying on her application, the chef, Finn King, insists that she work for a few weeks in the kitchen tasting every dish on the menu, helping prep, clean, etc. before she can assume her hostess position. The chemistry between the pair is off the charts haawwwt but will they do anything about it? Since Finn is her boss and all. Meanwhile, Finn, who already has a YouTube series, is working with a TV network to gain his own TV show. What surprises Finn and Hailee the most, is Hailee's natural talent to discern all of the flavors in a dish and give an intelligent critique. Finn offers Hailee a side job of helping him to try out dishes for his TV pilot...enough money that would help Hailee fulfill her dream of leaving her small hometown. This arrangement gives them the opportunity to get to know each other and they begin to secretly date. Can this relationship withstand their individual insecurities? I love that we get a cameo of Dean and Grandma Rosie...also love Hailee's grandma. Overall a beautiful story...love those King brothers...mwah!
I voluntarily accepted a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Great Read

How We Fall (Men of Evansdale County #2) by Alyne Hart was another great read in this series. Hailee doesn't expect to run into her boss when she's sent to the grocery store. I loved reading Hailee and Finn's story although there were many times that I wanted to yell at them both. I can't wait to read more by Alyne Hart.

Yummy Listen!

What a delicious listen this book by Alyne Hart is! I was drooling over some of the descriptions in this book. I loved the chemistry of Finn and Hailee in this book. As someone who appreciates fine food, this book really appealed to me. Add in an awesome narration, and the book is a total success in my eyes. Alan Taylor did a great performance with the character voices, which made listening enjoyable. I loved the character banter in the story.

Delicious and Satisfying!

Alyne Hart is fast becoming an author that I will one click! In book two of this series, we get an intimate look at the inner workings of a chef. Finn is first and foremost a chef, not looking for love, but when he runs into his new hire, Hailee, all bets are off. There is a no fraternization policy, but the chemistry between these two is sizzling and keeping their hands to themselves is difficult. Hailee has been hurt badly and is not interested in anything long term, but will she be able to hold her feelings back? This chance at happiness for each of them is clear and present. Hart writes the story so you can easily relate to each character and spend the entire time rooting for their happily ever after. This recipe for love has feelings of passion, frustration, anger and love all come out leaving your hunger completely satisfied. Not to mention the wonderful visuals of the food these two prepare and taste! With a cameo from Finn's brother Dean and his wonderful grandmother, Hart has another winner.

Alan Taylor is wonderful as a narrator. I love his rich tone and ability to switch between characters with ease. He provides female voices that do not have that forced sound and makes this story a delicious listen!
