Love You Senseless by Susan Mac Nicol

One of London’s up-and-coming chefs, Eddie Tripp has just the right recipe to drive tragedy from the mind of Gideon Kent—and leave him senseless with desire.


An award-winning chef with his own restaurant and an inexhaustible passion, Gideon Kent once had everything. Then came tragedy. It stole more than Gideon’s home. He hasn’t cooked since.

Until Eddie Tripp. Fun-loving and vivacious, the Norfolk redhead’s a real up-and-comer in Gideon’s kitchen—and other places. Slim where Gideon’s broad, easy-going where Gideon is growly, he and Gideon seem polar opposites, and yet Eddie conjures flavors that would tempt anyone with a taste for perfection. The sauce of love is already simmering, and this pair is about to dine on the most delicious dish they’ve ever prepared. Because Eddie’s been Gideon’s missing ingredient all along.

From Soho to Norwich, there’s no escaping love.

Gideon's one passion is being a chef. It's the one thing he loves to do but a serious accident has taken that from him. A fire that took his friend in front of him also left him without a sense of smell or taste. Two things a chef must have to be good. Without cooking in his life, Gideon is moody and short tempered. He's quick to go off on his kitchen staff. He knows he has one of the best up and coming sous chefs around. Not only is Eddie talented, but Gideon can't keep his thoughts professional.

A chef, a moody restaurant owner, a pervert and a physic....not character's traits you would usually put together but for whatever reason being put together in this context works. This is my first read from this author, the writing had a good flow, good character base. Overall the story was well written and worth a read.

This is the first book in the series.
This book is about Eddie and Gideon, they are very different but at the same time they have common interests.
Due to an accident Gideon has lost confidence in cooking, not great for a man who works as a chef and owns a restaurant. However when Eddie comes into the picture he's a great cook but quite accident prone, what a pair they make.
I really enjoyed watching the story unfold between Gideon and Eddie, it was great to watch them fall in love throughout the book.
Great start to the series, I can't wait for the rest.

This is a really lovely story which manages to combine some very sexy moments, with some very poignant ones – and then have you laughing out loud ... so pretty much perfect reading material! The characters are brought to life in a cleverly understated way, well, except for Leslie who definitely flames, yet clearly has a heart of gold. In fact there are lots of gold people in this story, and yet it is in no way sickly sweet – tough love and reality checks. The interplay between Eddie and Gideon is steamy hot, and hugely enjoyable. I am excited about reading the next in the series.

Thank you Ms. Mac Nicol, thank you very much indeed!

Susan Mac Nicol is a self confessed bookaholic, an avid watcher of videos of sexy pole dancing men, self confessed geek and nerd and in love with her Smartphone. This little treasure is called ‘the boyfriend’ by her long suffering husband, who says if it vibrated, there’d be no need for him. Susan hasn’t had the heart to tell him there’s an app for that…

She is never happier than when sitting in the confines of her living room/study/on a cold station platform scribbling down words and making two men fall in love. She is a romantic at heart and believes that everything happens (for the most part) for a reason. She likes to think of herself as a ‘half full’ kinda gal, although sometimes that philosophy is sorely tested.

Lover of walks in the forest, theatre productions, dabbling her toes in the cold North Sea and the vibrant city of London where you can experience all four seasons in a day , she is a hater of pantomime (so please don’t tar and feather her), duplicitous people, bigotry and self righteous idiots.

In an ideal world, Susan Mac Nicol would be Queen of England and banish all the bad people to the Never Never Lands of Wherever – Who Cares. As that’s never going to happen, she contents herself with writing her HEA stories and pretending, that just for a little while, good things happen to good people.
