Rosa Cruz, the fiery and ultra-sexy heiress of the Mama Linda Latin foods empire, is determined to create something on her own and not rely solely on her family’s name and legacy. For her new upscale restaurant in the trendy Wynwood neighborhood of Miami, she enlists the help of her childhood friend, the hot, young Cuban-American chef, Eliseo Perez, who’s already made a name for himself on the New York culinary scene. Despite Rosa’s reservations about a forbidden workplace romance with her new employee, not to mention longtime friend, the chemistry between them is undeniable. When the cooking starts, things quickly heat up in the kitchen and the bedroom. But with Eliseo’s troubled past coming back to haunt him, can Rosa and Eliseo hold onto love and keep the restaurant from going up in flames? 


My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

I love reading Vivian’s books!  I have been on this wild and crazy ride ever since Lily’s story in book one.  I have mixed feelings about this one I admit.  The writing is superb as it always it but I found myself skipping pages at times. 

As always Viv’s girls are very confident and powerful women that know what they want and Rosa is no exception.  She is Rodrigo’s brother and runs her own restaurant in Miami.  Needed to hire a head chef she travels to New York to visit an old friend in hopes to persuade him to work for her.

She hasn’t seen him since they were kids and it doesn’t take long before the two quickly start off in a very heated (I say that word lightly…wow) relationship.

Eliseo moves to Miami where things start to get interesting with old flames and dark pasts come to the surface.  Though not my favorite Viv book I still highly enjoyed and can’t wait to read more!

Favorite Quotes:

Elisea sits up and encircles Rosa with his legs.  Neither one can speak.  Neither of them wants to for fear hat any sound would break the spell.”

Vivian Winslow was born and raised in Southern California. Before becoming a writer, she made a career out of moving around the world every couple of years thanks to her husband’s job and her incurable wanderlust. She currently lives in New York City with her husband and two elementary school age children, and is grateful to finally have a place to call home for more than two years. New York is the perfect city to indulge her love of fashion, the arts and especially food. If she’s not at home writing or running around the city with her kids, you’ll most likely find her eating at the newest restaurant in her beloved Lower East Side or having a cocktail at her favorite bar in Alphabet City. That said, she’s still a California girl at heart and would gladly trade in her heels for a pair of flip-flops to catch a sunset on the beach.
