I received a copy of this book from Book Enthusiast Promotions in exchange for an honest review.

The first book that I read from this author did not work quite that well for me. That’s why going into this book, I deliberately lowered my expectations a bit. Maybe it’s because of that or something else, but I certainly liked Monster Chef much better than the other book.

The hero is a lost and tortured widower who seemed to lose his passion when his wife died. The heroine was a widow who was trying out a new life with her daughter and her mother-in-law. At first, they are antagonistic to each other until something changed and they fell into an affair and eventually into love.

I liked the conversations that the hero had with his late wife. I think it was sweet and it added depth to his character. I also liked the relationship between the hero and the heroine’s daughter. It was again sweet and unexpected. I didn’t love the heroine, but I thought she was okay.

I have some issues with the book, especially with the transition from enemies to lovers. Also, there were some events in the book that I felt were insignificant and did not add to or do anything for the story at all. I won’t give you the details, but they’re there. Anyway, regardless of my complaints, I still have to say this one entertained me more than her MC book did, so in that aspect, I’m happy.
