Love never tasted so sweet...
Sexy venture capitalist Cameron Price takes the helm of the Seattle branch of the firm to prove he has what it takes to lead the entire company. Unfortunately, his boss thinks what it takes for a workaholic like Cam is a wife!
To fend off the matrimonally inclined, Cameron has to think fast. Inspired by the dazzling green eyes of the gorgeous caterer, he proposes the kind of innovative arrangement he's known for. If Lauren Brody will spend a few weeks on his arm networking at events, she'll be able to raise the profile of Come For Dinner catering and book more clients than she ever dreamed.
But Lauren has a plan of her own and tempts Cameron to play along. She convinces Mr. Buttoned-Up-Tight they can have some serious fun on his piano, in his kitchen, and behind closed doors. But it's dangerous to keep a lid on something so hot. And a relationship was never on Cameron's agenda...
WARNING : Indulge at your own risk! Cravings for exotic fruit, decadent delights, erotic fashion & steaming hot nights of pleasure have been reported.
My Review: 4 1/2 stars
This was an interesting book that had a lot more to do with cooking and eating than I originally thought. I liked the story line, especially the part where Cameron apologizes to all the guests for something he told them previously. I did like that initially, Lauren was supposed to be just a one night cover for Cameron, and she was willing to play along. A way to get his boss off his back about getting married. I really liked that Lauren had her own ideas about everything and was playful and interesting. I liked that she thought her business was just as important as Camerons, and didn't back down because of a difference of opinion. I did like that in the end, they gave in to their passions and they did have some time to enjoy each other. These two were so funny in that they both wanted each other, and not for a short while, but didn't want the other to know they had feelings for them. Too afraid to say something about anything lasting, because both of their previous relationships were horrible and ended very badly. I really enjoyed the way the story ended. There were bumps along the way, but nothing so truly horrendous that they couldn't get over it. I'll be sure to keep an eye out for more of Jenna's work.
