Sypnosis from Goodreads

USA Today bestselling author Lauren Dane delivers a second serving of sexy in her new Delicious novel, in which taste and temptation make up a sweet recipe…

Mary Whaley has her hands full running a successful catering company and overseeing her supper club. She has everything she ever wanted—or so she thought. When she meets ridiculously hot and very dirty rock star Damien Hurley at her friend’s engagement party, the attraction she feels is overpowering—and she isn’t about to deny herself.

Damien is used to a hard and fast life. He and two of his brothers started a band when they were fresh out of high school—then they hit the big time and stayed there. He’s also a legendary madman on the stage and in the bedroom. But when he meets Mary, something clicks, and the bad boy starts thinking he may have finally found something good.

What begins as a series of fleeting trysts soon gets much more complicated. Damien can’t figure out why Mary doesn’t want more from him. And before long, it’s Damien who wants more from Mary. But it turns out Mary is no stranger to celebrity news, and he’s got a very big job ahead of him: proving that he’s worth more than a one-night stand…

My Thoughts

I have read 40% of this story before finally calling it quits.  I received this book for an honest review from Netgalley and after reading the Synopsis I thought it would be a good Steamy read.

Unfortunately while it did have steamy parts, most of the plot revolved around Mary and her food. I am not a foodie, I don’t Instagram or facebook my cooking, In fact most of the dinners made in my house are from my dear husband.

I just could not get past the food parts of the plot, It did not appeal to me and since Mary’s main love for food dominated the plot I DNF it.

I may revisit this story again in the future, The ARC copy that I received had formating marks through it which also made it very distracting.

  1. Sadness, but it’s always nice to clear the shelf and move on! I hope you have a great book lined up. I think I’m too picky of an eater to be considered a foodie.
