I love my life. As owner and chef at one of the hottest restaurants, I know how to keep things sizzling in and out of the kitchen. What more could I ask for? But I’ll tell you what I didn’t ask for… a klutzy, curly-haired woman slamming into me with a unicorn cake. Yes, you read that right—a damn cake decorated to look like the mythical creature bathed in every color of the rainbow.
What could be worse, right? I’ll tell you. My brother hired her to be my pastry chef. You’d think that would be my biggest problem, but that was just the tip of the iceberg.
Aside from her being one of the clumsiest women I’ve ever met, she turns me on like no other woman has. She tastes sweeter than anything she creates, and we make a great team in and out of the bedroom... I mean kitchen.
When we first met, I worried my restaurant wouldn’t survive her. Now I worry that my heart won’t.
I never wanted to fall in love, but sometimes life isn’t all unicorns and rainbows.
4 Heart Review by Ashley
Oh my happy heart! Hooked is the conclusion to the Prescott Series that I have been waiting for. From the Josh and Gia's, literal, first run in, I was there for it. There was family and humor and food heat and friendship and heart.
Josh, the baby of the bunch and the one determined not to settle down. Married to his job, and not looking for anything serious gets more than he bargained for when he and Gia collide, literally. His second encounter with Gia didn't fare much better than the first. And when he learns the news that she'll be working for him, he for sure thought it was going to be a recipe for disaster.
Gia was so adorably awkward that I couldn't help but root for her. From her glasses to her curly hair she was a mess of color and creativity. Her talent in the kitchen more than impressed Josh. And as they spent time working together, he found himself drawn to her more and more. To say these two were electric together would be an understatement. They were dynamic and hot and I could feel the emotions building every time they came together. So color Josh surprised when he realizes he went and did the thing he thought we could never do, fall for a woman.
And when it was all on the line, it was Josh who made the hard choice. I shook my kindle and went "noooooooooo!"even though it was the right thing to do...But fate, the good ol' fickle thing she is, decided she wasn't quite done with Josh and Gia yet. I can say I didn't see that one coming but I am beyond thrilled this panned out the way it did. And that ending, talk about perfection. Nothing else would've done this book, and this series justice. Hooked was bittersweet. While I am sad to say farewell to the Prescott's, I loved all of their journey's. And the way Joanne Schwehm gave me glimpses into all the siblings futures left me more than satisfied.
