Since we are telling you about some of our favourite reads of 2013, the Let it Snow Books Event 2013 wouldn't be complete if I didn't mention Some Like It Spicy by Robbie Terman. It was one of those books which after months of having read it still gives me goosebumps and happy sighs. Yes it was that good. And thankfully its sequel Some Like It Sinful got released recently, so you know what I'll be reading during the holidays! ;-) So please give a warm welcome to Robbie as she shares with us some of her favourite holiday traditions. :-)
Some Like It Spicy. The story's heroine, Ashton Grey, may not get along with her father, but she's definitely carrying on a family tradition by becoming a chef. Her father is a famous food critic, and she grew up in the industry. But her true love of cooking came from her grandmother, who ran a tea shop out of the lower level of her home. It's her grandmother that makes it possible for Ashton to open up her restaurant, Sweet Home, by leaving Ashton her house. And Ashton will do whatever she has to in order to keep her restaurant - and her grandmother's memory - alive. Even compete on a cooking reality show!
What are some of your most important holiday traditions?
When she's not writing, Robbie can usually be found doing one of three things: shopping for shoes and handbags at Nordstrom; trying a new restaurant (or attempting a new recipe); or relaxing on the couch and catching up on her favorite television programs (if you're wondering which ones, open up a TV Guide and take your pick. You've probably guessed right!).
Book #1 in the Perfect Recipe series
Ashton Grey’s restaurant, Sweet Home, is in trouble. Months of empty tables have left her and her partners near bankruptcy, and her father’s prediction of her failure as a chef seems imminent. But a chance encounter could provide Ashton with the publicity she needs to save her restaurant—if the fiery chef is willing to compete on a reality cooking show. But in order to win, she needs to stay focused. No problem…until she meets the head judge.
Celebrity chef Ty Cates is ready to get away from the camera and back to the kitchen where he belongs. Performing as head judge on a reality show is just one more commitment he’d like to get out of, especially after he meets Ashton. Head judges dating contestants is about as taboo as putting ketchup on filet mignon, but from the moment they meet, there’s a simmering heat between them that neither can ignore.
As the competition heats up, they rely on sneaking around, stealing amazing night after amazing night together when the cameras aren’t rolling. When both realize what’s starting to feel like love could easily be a recipe for disaster, Ashton and Ty need to make a choice—get out of the kitchen or turn up the heat.
