Sizzling In The Kitchen Series

Book #1 - Chef In The Wild - Amazon US | Amazon UK | Universal Link


Bobby Diaz has worked his whole life to get where he is – running a restaurant with his two closest friends, no boss, and generally content. When his best friend Baldwin gets the gig of a lifetime, he asks Bobby to take over the restaurant while he’s gone. He’ll miss his friend, but he’s excited to put himself to the test. He can’t believe he’s getting the chance to finally run his own kitchen.

Cal Mayer is thirty and starting over. His last relationship was a failure. His job went down the drain. So when his cousin Pete, a.k.a Baldwin Powell celebrity chef, offers him a gig in his restaurant, he can’t help but to jump at the offer to reinvent himself.

Bobby and Cal don’t exactly hit it off—to put it lightly. Bobby resents getting Cal dumped in his lap. Cal doesn’t appreciate Bobby’s frosty attitude. They’re stuck together day and night, and their chemistry is undeniable… but will it be sweet summer love or a case of too many chefs in the kitchen?


I truly, absolutely LOVED this book!

The world of Montpelier was warm and friendly and filled with the perfect descriptions for a world built around the kitchen of a small town restaurant. It was like a character unto itself. Murph and Baldwin were great supporting characters in that way that they helped move the story forward with the main characters and they were full of personality and it made me want to read their story. (I hope they have one!)

The main characters made this story. Watching Bobby and Cal’s evolution from the first time we meet them to the end warmed my heart and even made it a little broken at times. I felt for Cal in his decisions and his feelings, even as much as I wanted to smack him to wake him up. The same went for Bobby in the beginning. From enemies who argued and fought for months to tentative friends to more, each step was well paced and flowed so well.

The one hiccup I found that I thought could’ve made this story 5 stars was the sex scene. The author gave us two dynamic characters whose relationship went through this transformation but always had this underlying heat and chemistry. When the time came and the tension broke and they finally woke up to their feelings to have it be in a vague one-off paragraph felt like all that heat and chemistry just fizzled. It was anti-climactic. Do I like sex in books? Yup but I’ve read plenty that made it work so that it didn’t hurt the story or its characters. This TO ME was not one of those times, sadly.

In the end, I still loved these guys, the town, and even the ending. The author is truly a talented writer and she has proven this to me time and time again with every story I’ve read of hers. This one included.

MJ O’Shea has never met a music festival, paintbrush, or flower crown she can stay away from. She loves rainstorms and a perfect cup of tea, beach days, music, bright colors, and more than anything a cozy evening with a really great book.

She is from the Pacific Northwest. While she still lives there and loves it, MJ has the heart of a wanderer. So she puts all her dreams of far off places and extraordinary people in her books.

Except for every once in a while when she does what all travelers have to do on occasion… come home.
