Taste the Heat (Love and Games #1) by Rachel Harris

17 Aug


One sexy fire captain. One Cajun chef, One combustible kitchen…

When chef Colby Robicheaux returned home to New Orleans to save her family restaurant, the last person she expected to reconnect with was her brother’s best friend and her childhood crush. As tempting as a sugar-coated beignet, Jason is one dish she doesn’t want to taste. Colby is counting down the days till she can leave the place where her distrust of love and commitment originated and go back to Vegas.

Fire captain Jason Landry isn’t looking for love, either. He knows he should focus on finding the perfect mother for his daughter, but when he first sees Colby, all grown up and gorgeous, he can’t help but be drawn to her. And when she suggests a no-strings-attached fling, Jason doesn’t want to say no.

As their relationship grows more intense, Colby finds that Jason isn’t as easy to leave behind as she thought. Could turning up the heat on something real be worth the possibility of getting burned?



This book is really amazing. It will swept you off your feet and you won’t help but falling in love with this book. In the beginning it intrigued me, I kept thinking what was that reason due to which Colby left her home a long time ago but it all turned out to be very interesting in the end.

Colby had always crushed on her brother’s best friend Jason but he never thought of her in any way other than his friend’s little sister hence someone he couldn’t possibly mess with. Then she left town due to some reasons and he got married to his first love and high school sweetheart. Now she is back and he is a single father. They are both instantly attracted to each other, chemistry is undeniable but none is looking for love or relationship although these things work in mysterious ways and despite of everything they end up together. Now the question is can their relationship last or will someone end up hurt?

A beautifully written romance which made me laugh and cry at the same time. If you enjoy contemporary romance this is a must read.
