As LA’s hottest up-and-coming chef, Alexa Montoya is known for her ruby red lipstick, award-winning arroz con pollo and a penchant for falling for the wrong kind of men. And when a confrontation with a loser ex-boyfriend lands her in some legal trouble, she’s forced to call her long-time friend, Dante Perez, to bail her out. Only this time, Dante seems different, somehow. More gorgeous, more sexy, more…mouthwateringly irresistible. Suddenly she’s tempted to give the lawyer much more than a simple thank you…

Dante is tired of seeing Alexa with guys who only know how to steal her money and break her heart. He’s watched–and waited for–her long enough. Helping with her legal situation will finally give him a chance to win her over for good. His plan? He’ll seduce her into finally believing that there’s something deliciously right between them…

Despite their chemistry, Alexa can’t trust that Dante won’t leave. But Dante knows how to win a case. And he’ll do whatever it takes to convince Alexa that she’ll always leave him hungry for more…

After reading the second book and learning about Brandon’s sister who’s a chef (Alexa) and his best friend slash lawyer (Dante) and their chemistry that was so evident, I knew I had to read it. And read I did and enjoyed as well.

Alexa knew she shouldn’t have gone to her ex’s restaurant with her friends because one look at it and she knew that was her ideas, dream come true. Only it’s been stolen by her d-bag of an ex. She shouldn’t have called him up for it and took control of her feelings but it’s too late. Now she’s facing a lawsuit for being accused of breaking things at his restaurant because she’s a jealous ex. This was when she really needed Dante’s help.

There are so many things that I liked in this book. It’s a second-chance romance since Alexa and Dante had already met back when they were still in Puerto Rico and Dante had been Brandon’s guest for the summer. Dante knew there’s something between him and Alexa after that kiss and hanging out with her but clearly something bothered her that had her pulling all the breaks. Years later, he still got the hots for her and she’s still pushing him away. You could really tell that Dante cared for Alexa from how he treated her–special, with respect because of her independence and spirit and a very good chef. Even when what she wanted from him was just sex. Or that’s what she said. It was very obvious that Alexa was holding back from trusting Dante because of what the above mentioned ex did to her. But so was Dante though he kind of hid it. His past wasn’t something he talked about to anyone because he’s not proud of it but you could really tell how much he loved the person who took care of him. Dante and Alexa’s banter was easy and flirty and they’re really good for each other.

The book was also generous of really yummy recipes that I swear made my mouth water, sex scenes that were steamy and done very well, light issues about immigrant people and foster care system, and girl power (setting her ex straight). The story progressed smoothly and sexily without heavy drama.

I would’ve given this five stars if I wasn’t so frustrated with Alexa for bailing out like that on Dante when all he did was to secure her. It would’ve been satisfying as well if the court hearing happened again just so I could see Dante in action in the courtroom defending Alexa’s case and winning it, and if the ending didn’t feel a little too rushed.

Overall, I really had a good time reading another Sabrina Sol’s book and this just makes me so excited for what she has in store next for readers who fell in love with her stories. I would keep an eye out for the next ones!
