When Lilah Jane Tunkle fled her dull life in Virginia for the bright lights of New York City, she didn’t expect to wind up a nanny to a gorgeous celebrity chef’s ten-year-old son. Working for the delectable Devon Sparks is a sure-fire recipe for disaster, especially after Lilah gets a tantalizing taste of his perfectly seasoned kisses …
Devon’s not sure he can handle one more surprise ingredient in his life—he quit his popular TV show, his culinary reputation is on the line, and now the son he barely knows is back for seconds. Lilah’s Southern sass is supposed to keep the boy in line, but soon enough she’s teaching Devon a thing or two about homespun food…and turning up the heat.
On The Steamy Side is the next installment of a Recipe for Love series by Louisa Edwards.
Back are some of my favorite characters, Frankie and Jess. And just like the previous book, Can't Stand the Heat, I was more curious on what was happening with those two than the main characters, Lilah and Devon.
Don't get me wrong both Lilah and Devon are great characters, she has a wonderful quirkiness that is so endearing that I couldn't help but loving her and Devon is such a strong individual plus he has an ego of the size of Manhattan, but underneath that hard shell there's this boy wanting to be accepted by the one person that he cannot seem to charm, his father. And then you add Devon's almost non-existent relationship with his son, Tucker. Slowly Devon realizes what he wants and what he needs and it is truly wonderful when he comes to that realization. Gone is the mega super star but a vulnerable human being.
I cannot wait to get my hands on the next book, Just One Taste.
