Fast, fast paced Almost too fast This really could ve been strung out a little but it s pretty typical of the steamy novellas It was still an enjoyable read I loved that the H was so grumpy and growly and that the h brought him back down to calm I especially loved that this book was dedicated to my sweet friend Chantal For that alone it gets an additional star.
Too short to get off.I need foreplay at my age
I really liked this novella by Aria Cole I honestly wish this one had been longer I loved both Delaney and Jean Luc If this story had been fleshed out and the characters developed it would ve been amazing.

Jean Luc is a hot, tattooed, arrogant, temperamental, talented chef, who owns his own restaurant Delaney is sassy, feisty, and gives as good as she gets Perfect match No spoilers from me though, you need to read this one for yourself This is a short, sweet, sexy story I adore this author s work, and she always hooks and intrigues me from the very beginning of each book I recommend his authors work for all readers.I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book
This story would actually be a 4 stars if it weren t for a lack of physical description I hate when I can t imagine what they look like By 24% we only know that she is short with blue eyes and he is tall with tattoos, no other descriptions We do eventually find out about her It s not until 35% that we find out he has long hair And we never find out his hair or eye color.
