review Cooking with Kandy Will Cook for Love #1,
Always have to have his way unless it came to the protection of the heroine And that was his ob This is a romance that has a bit of mystery and suspense to it which I always love The sexual tension between
The Two Main Characters Was Intense And Steamy Yet Itwo main characters was intense and steamy yet I liked that they stayed professional most of the book and weren t umping into bed or having sex throughout But when they finally did ouch
it was hot It s nice to read a book thatwas hot It s nice to read a book that t ust one long sex scene and actually has a plot There s a nice teaser at the end for the second book in the series and it includes Kandy s sister Gemma And she was uite a character in this book so I can t wait to see what this author has in store for her I received this book from Net Galley I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads I really enjoyed this book and am delighted that it is the start of a new series there are after all plenty of side characters who could do with an HEA too Kandy is a human dynamo sweeping along everyone in her wake This includes giving her family members good Civil-military Relations In Pakistan jobs working with her on her show books etc and avoiding situations where she must cede control Having seen what her father s departure did to her mother she is most definitely not interested in love Enter Josh PI and security detail employed by her cousinassistant following series of unpleasant events And I have to say this plot was done really rather well with sufficient false leads etc to make it a bit of a mystery Now Josh is not a man to mix business with pleasure so they should be perfectly safe from each other but of course that pesky chemistryust won t leave them alone The layers in this book work well peeling away her fears and rationale uncovering the perpetrator of the threats delving into family dynamics and loyalties and the romance A very promising start to this new series thank you Ms Jaege.
