My Review of Food Lust by J.D. Lexx

Food Lust
Food Lust by J.D. Lexx

Series: A Crimson Confessions Novella
Genre: Erotic Romance, Contemporary
Publication Date: August 15, 2015



For some, the kitchen represents a sanctuary of the senses—a mergence of soul and sustenance that licks at the flesh while teasing the mind’s pleasure. To others, it’s but a steely hive of horror. And then there’s JESSICA AMES, a canned soup kind of girl in a land of haute cuisine whose aversion to culinary adventure once seemed all but incurable. But when she catches the eye of celebrity chef MARCO ADRIANO at a pretentious rooftop soiree, his uniquely sensual take on food whets an appetite that may just prove insatiable. If only they’d had more time…



My Rating: 5 out of 5 stars

Where does one begin after reading such a delectable read, such as Food Lust?  I’m in love with this man’s writing. His words course through my veins like molten lava. Setting the fictional bar high in ways those other mediocre authors can only dream about.

I’m typically not one to read Novellas.  They always leave me craving and lusting for more, but Food Lust sated me, creating an insatiable frenzy in my taste buds, as well as other parts of my body.

I admired Jessica’s wild, tenacious persona.  Determined to finish what was started on that rooftop with Chef Marco Adriano months prior, she brazenly wins a private audience with him.  Once she has him in her lustful clutches, the erotic dance commences, tantalizingly mixing food and desire to an orgasmic level.

I love how JD begins his stories with the glimpse of the end. I find myself looking forward to reading the first chapter over, once the story concludes. Expect to have to walk away from this read, on more than one occasion, to catch your breath and slow your rapidly beating heart.

Favorite Scene: I’m not one to usually waste wine, but when Jessica pours Cabernet over Marco’s body, intending to lick every last drop off him, made me want to recreate the scene myself.
Favorite Quotes:

He owned the moment without apology or pretense, giving me precious little to push back against.”

”I’m your apéritif now, am I, Mr. Adriano?”
”Not at all, my dear.” He leaned in to whisper a playful correction.
”An apéritif serves only to whet the appetite.  I see you as a complex spread, a feast to savor at leisure.”

”You owe me a shirt.”
”Done.” He didn’t miss a beat.  Button by button, Marco loosened his monogramed dress shirt until it flowed loosely from his shoulders.  Each rooftop breeze now exposed his strong chest and a teasing tuff of black hair that rolled down defined layers of abdominal muscles before tapering at his belt line.
The wolf in chef’s clothing? Yum.

”He played into my hands, while I fell into his—the line blurred between stalker and quarry until the roles themselves became academic.”

International attorney, award-winning journalist and last of a modest raconteur bloodline, J.D. Lexx has been a storyteller for most of his life and a student of humanity for even longer. Perhaps it’s no wonder that he takes such pleasure in the subtle tease of the written word, in kindling curiosity with every shared tale, then daring the imagination to continue on beyond The End.
A traveler by nature, Lexx spends most of his time between the frenzied streets of New York and the slower pace of New Orleans’ Vieux Carre´. When not exploring the sensual psyche through his writing, he can usually be found honing his skills in the kitchen or working alongside charitable organizations to promote literacy and tolerance– two causes not only reflected in his work, but forever dear to his heart.
