“...Delightfully written. A story of identity, love and forgiveness...plenty of drama and WTF moments. Passionate and angsty.” – Amazon Reviewer
“The story was amazing...” – Goodreads Reviewer Laura
Frannie has spent years searching for herself. She’s tried ten different names so far (because why should she be saddled with Frannie just because her parents chose it?) and her latest, Jasmine, just might stick. Despite her insecurities, she’s always been confident about her abilities in the kitchen. She is a chef extraordinaire, thank you very much, and she won’t have anyone tell her different. Especially not some stuffy customer who doesn’t appreciate her work, even if he is tall and sexy and a loving father to boot.
Aiden is a stickler for privacy, so much so that he uses a pseudonym for his work as a famed restaurant critic. He’s received threats from irate chefs before and he doesn’t want anyone to know who he really is, especially since he has a son to protect.
During his working visit to a local pub, the Seashell, his life erupts. His ex barges in and decides it’s time he takes full custody of their son so she can go off on another flighty adventure. In the midst of the dramatic scene, it’s Frannie who comes to his rescue.
Frannie who comforts his son, while he deals with his ex.
Frannie who captivates him, and it’s Frannie’s food he loves.
And it was Frannie’s food years ago that he decimated in the paper.
So, he can’t tell Frannie who he really is, because he and his son could risk losing her forever.
Then she finds out, and all hell really breaks loose.
