About the book:
Riding the waves of a sugar high, Violet Cunningham seduces the town’s newest pastry chef, slathering him with whipped cream in his secret kitchen. But all that is made of sugar melts, and her brazenness vanishes soon after their tryst, leaving her battling old insecurities about her waistline and appetites, courtesy of her mother. Positive she’s only made a fool of herself, she’s mortified when her boss sends her back to sexy Chef Max’s kitchen and into the proverbial frying pan.
After a red-hot date, her chef disappears, and Violet’s emotions simmer to a boil, forcing her to confront the awful truth: there’s more to life than pastry.

Let me be honest; I’m not a fan of French pastries and desserts but Mon Dieu, Eva Lefoy completely whets my appetite with her short and steamy story. My favourite heroines are curvy gals and the only thing better than a big beautiful heroine is one who has a larger than life attitude and the aplomb to go after what she wants. Now Violet isn’t perfect, she has insecurities and flaws which to me just makes her more interesting, more believable. I love when I can relate to the heroines and in Violet I felt as if I made a friend. And really who wouldn’t want the sexy Chef Max who has a delicate touch with sweets and a deft touch with the heroine’s body? Can I say I’m jealous of the heat from this couple? Ohh la la, but they steam up the kitchen and the bedroom. I so enjoyed this story as it was the lunch time read I loved how swift the story was yet I didn’t feel as if it were sacrificing the integrity of the character’s personalities. If all Eva Lefoy’s characters are this easy to relate to I’ll definitely be adding her to my must read list.
