Genre: Contemporary romance
Publisher: Vivian Winslow
Eliseo has dealt with the egos of chefs while remaining a sous. Ready for a new adventure and even some notoriety of his own, he is willing to return to his hometown even when it means accepting the family drama which comes with it.
I have read all of the works from Vivian Winslow and this one has quite a bit of a different feel to it. Although there isn’t as much sex in this story as in previous ones, Rosa and Eliseo still have crazy good chemistry. I love that they have a bit of built in history because they were childhood friends. In the past stories, I’ve learned to not try to figure out what man the heroine will end up with because I’m not always right. In this one we learn pretty quickly. This made for a nice change because then the focus is truly on the formation of the bond and how it increases in significance while traversing through the mind fields of their lives. There’s quite a bit of angst because both individuals are rather passionate and independent; those characteristics alone are interesting just vying for friction from being so similar. Fortunately we get to see how the couple navigates their families, work, and pasts to create a future.
This is another solid story from Winslow. Plus we get to see how some of the past couples are doing. It’s a win-win romance.
