Publisher's Summary

Luca McGrath may be returning to Napa Valley, California, as a promising chef with dreams of starting his own restaurant and winery, but his heart still lives with the bad-boy son of a billionaire James Armstrong. Luca spent his childhood playing games with the golden boy of California society, so blinded by James he barely noticed the dark, quiet lure of his conservative older brother, Dylan Armstrong.

But now Luca's home, and his own powers of attraction are enough to make James question his dedicated heterosexuality and his promised marriage to a wealthy and powerful businesswoman. The obvious attraction between Luca and James spurs Dylan into action - but he's fighting a huge secret. While Luca dreamed of James, Dylan dreamed of Luca. When Luca gets caught in the struggle between the brothers and gets accused of culinary espionage, he's ready to chuck the fairy tale - unable to even imagine Dylan's power to make his dreams come true.

    "great plot, bad execution"

    the storyline was great, don't get me wrong. Boy has childhood crush, his fantasies basically comes true only to find out that he has more in common and actually a chance with the older brother. the execution of this plot however, was very rushed. As soon as Luca realized that all his childhood fantasies was just that, fantasies, he IMMEDIATELY moves on to Dylan like??? Is it really that easy? Luca didn't even look at Dylan in that light until he came back home, and now your saying that they're in love and getting married all in what, the span of a month? I'm sorry but I was hoping for something more believable or at least a longer timeline for these events to unfold.

    "Wow!"

    I have to say Tara Lain knocked this one out of the park! Love, love, love her unique twist to my all time favorite fairytale romance Sabrina, and a great choice in narrators. Greg Tremblay did a amazing job bringing all of the characters to life. This book is definitely top of my list of books I will listen to again and again. Looking forward to your next book!

    "Sabrina remake with three hot men – audio review "

    Some books just hit the perfect note and Tara Lain’s Return of the Chauffeur’s Son is that book. I was never a huge fan of the movie Sabrina, but this remake is creative, imaginative, and just plain fun.

    Luca is the chauffeur’s son, recently returned from a prestigious position in a restaurant, who has come home to Napa to be close to his dad, take a new job, and see if his boyhood crush on James Armstrong is still as fierce as ever.

    Always treated respectfully by the Armstrong family, Luca grew up close to the younger son. Only when he returns does he discover his crush and friend is engaged to a very nice woman. Disappointed, although not as much as he thought he would be, Luca throws himself into this new job at Culinary Arts. All the local restaurants partake in an annual cooking competition and Luca’s new employer has lost several times to its archrival. So all hopes and pressure are put on Luca to win the prize.

    No pressure, right?

    Except there are rumours of spies everywhere. Oh, and James has decided he’s bisexual and puts Luca in his sights, despite his sweet fiancée.

    Chaos, right?

    Could be, except for Dylan, the eldest son in the Armstrong family. He is openly gay – not experimenting – and he sees James callously hurting everyone around him. He is focused on growing the family business, but keeps a close eye on his younger brother and tries to head off trouble at the pass.

    I love the trope of a pseudo-love triangle. Because although Luca has always had a crush on James, Dylan is now on his radar. There is also a lot of love in the Armstrong family and that includes Luca and his father. Proof that not everyone views social class as everything.

    The ending is predictable, of course, but I love the dénouement. Like I said, another Tara Lain hit. Low angst, lots of laughter, and most of all, a world where men are loved for who they are and not who they are attracted to. Or who they eventually fall in love with.

    Greg Tremblay is one of my favourite narrators and he did a great job. This is a great listen.
