Resolution: Eating In - Tessa Blake
Reading Challenge Category: Free from Author
There’s more to life than eating out… Claire Warner has not one but four potential New Year’s resolutions: Trying to choose one is making her crazy, but she likes to keep things simple. But when her boss, Rafe Garrett, hooks her up with a gorgeous new apartment with a dream kitchen and a handsome chef to give her cooking lessons, it looks like three of them are sorted pretty neatly. Claire’s not sure she can trust it—everything is happening so fast. It’s a big leap from single girl heating up cans of soup and eating takeout to … whatever this is that she’s doing with Mason Brody, celebrity chef and star of Knives Out, the cutthroat cooking show. Mason doesn't want to take her out; he just wants to take her. And Claire’s about to learn that sure, eating out is great—but eating in can be pretty mind-blowing, too.
This was a very realistic portrayal of New Year’s Eve resolutions. 1. To lose weight 2. To learn to cook 3. Buy a house 4. Find a man When Claire gets the text from her sorority sister saying she should just go for it and make a change, she doesn’t know which of these resolutions to go for. As fate would have it three out of the four would come packaged in a neat little bow later that evening! The romance between Claire and Mason develops organically and naturally and at a steady pace. For a short novella, it feels as if you are really getting to know the characters. For the first half of the books, I actually forgot that this was supposed to be a ‘steamy’ romance as I was wrapped up in the story. It was a delightful read, and I’m grateful to the author for sending me a copy of this book as it is no longer available on Amazon. This was the last of Tessa Blake’s Flirt Club collaboration books that I needed to catch up on, and I’m glad I hunted it down.
