Synopsis from Goodreads: Celebrity chef Maxwell Cavanaugh is known for many things: his multiple Michelin stars, his top-rated Culinary Channel show To the Max, and most of all his horrible temper. Hadley Beckett, host of the Culinary Channel's other top-rated show, At Home with Hadley, is beloved for her Southern charm and for making her viewers feel like family.When Max experiences a very public temper tantrum, he's sent packing to get his life in order. When he returns, career in shambles, his only chance to get back on TV and in the public's good graces is to work alongside Hadley.As these polar-opposite celeb chefs begin to peel away the layers of public persona and reputation, they will not only discover the key ingredients for getting along, but also learn the secret recipe for unexpected forgiveness . . . and maybe even love. In the meantime, hide the knives.Fan-favorite Bethany Turner serves up a heaping helping of humor and romance with this thoroughly modern story centered on cooking, enemies, and second chances.
My Review: I really enjoyed this super fun romantic comedy. I loved that it was about too chefs and featured a lot of their cooking and dish descriptions in the story. It made me want to cook a bit more. I for the most part enjoyed the relationship development and personal growth of the characters though I felt it had stalled out of a bit in the middle of the book which slowed it down. I also felt some of the main characters choices got a bit repetitive. Overall though I really enjoyed the story and definitely recommend it to fans of rom-coms.
