Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

This is the first in a new series, and I am really looking forward to reading future installments, as I am already invested in this family. I love romances set in restaurants with broody, sexy chefs... so this was always going to be good plot-wise, but I am also a big fan of the very talented Catherine Bybee – which made this a definite win-win!

Brooke has to make a difficult decision when her father needs help, and her boyfriend refuses to be patient. She ups sticks and moves to San Diego – not back to her father's dreary hometown, but close enough to be there for him.

Luck (and a somewhat interfering possible mother-in-law) gives Brooke the opportunity to live in a small, top floor flat above an Italian restaurant. Now she finds that she is being adopted by the family, especially Luca's young daughter, Franny, and it feels good. Brooke and Franny have something profound in common, and that link between them is a beautiful bond. It is always important that along with the passion of the main characters, the child is not neglected – that is dealt with so organically here, that it enhances the progress towards love of Luca and Brooke.

Knowing that we are going to get more goodness, more sass, and more family from this new series is very gratifying!
