Maya Vaughn, the hottest young pastry chef to emerge from the reality television machine, enjoys spending time with men and women alike. When she takes a turn as a judge on the very show that launched her career, she expects to find a nice change of scenery and a little diversion.

A late-bloomer at forty-two years old, Shannon Hayes is finally on the precipice of achieving her dreams. She has one shot to prove she can compete with chefs half her age with much more experience. Engaging in a fling with a judge fourteen years her junior would almost certainly kill that chance.

An enjoyable read. Well written, likeable characters, and the plot of a cooking reality show is very different than most romance novels.  Would recommend!

Very good story with a clean writing style. The author did a fantastic job with the characters. Often bi-sexual characters end up "becoming" gay or lesbian at the end of the story, but this character stayed true to herself throughout and I thought her bisexuality was handled well. The connection between the two characters felt real. The author made the city of Nashville part of the story. The plot was a little predictable, but the writer kept it interesting.

Another winner from Erin Dutton. She tells a great story and covers all the bases with her writing.  I liked the plot in this one as it brings in a very realistic reality genre.

This book was joy to read. The plot was snappy and well developed, with perfect timing in the development of the romance between the love interests. I look forward to reading more by this author.
