A Taste of You: Book Review

A Taste of You
By Barbara Morgenroth
Available on Amazon

Pastries, chocolates, overwhelming desires, duct tape and kidnapping.

Bel Miller’s life is French pastry and she wants to be left to her passion without distraction. Ash Lau, #1 lawyer on cable TV, has no intention of leaving Bel alone. One taste was all it took to convince Ash there is no life for him without her. For Bel, a man in her life would be like pouring water into melting chocolate—instant seize. Kicking herself every step of the way, Bel’s not immune to Ash’s charm onslaught and finds herself uncontrollably melting into him.
Ash’s ex-girlfriend doesn’t feel so exey and won’t give him up. She has a reputation as Sizzle McFizzle to consider.

Add a fan who will do anything to have a man she’s never met and the results are a holiday season worthy of the gossip pages.

Three women. One man. What doesn't go wrong?

My Review: Bel isn't looking for a new relationship or a thriving business, but her sister, Viva, is determined to kickstart both her catering company and her love life. Add a heaping helping of Ash, the sexy, intelligent lawyer who has his own news show; his scandalous ex who won't let go; a stalker; and Molly, the pushy 'friend' with the alternative lifestyle. Bel's bland life is about to get spicy.

This is a very fun book. Full of intelligent dialogue, likable (and unlikable) characters, and a romance that leaps off the page, A Taste of You is a definite must-read. I adored Bel. Logical and reasonable, Bel has a firm set of values, though she's not a stick-in-the-mud. She hardworking, but not overly ambitious. She's trusting without being stupid. In short, she has very clear ideas of where she wants to go in life and she's not willing to sacrifice her morals to achieve her goals. She wants a peaceful, normal life.

Unfortunately, her love interest is embroiled in a not-so-peaceful scandal involving his boss's daughter. Even though Ash annoys Bel at first, she finds herself drawn to him. As they get to know each other at a cerebral level, the chemistry between them kept me turned the pages, anxious to see how Bel and Ash would overcome their problems. I wholeheartedly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys romance with a dash of humor. I loved this book!

My Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
