With a three-year-old daughter to raise and a restaurant to run, the last thing Luc Rossi's life has room for is love. After his fiancée's betrayal, he isn't sure he believes in it anyway. His colleague's matchmaking attempt is awkward at best, but what can he do except play the gentleman? Liz ends up being smart, charming, and sexy, and he can't resist her.
An offer to teach her to cook leads to a steamy fling, but this gorgeous older woman makes Luc wonder if it's time to open his heart again. Can he convince Liz that giving their relationship a chance beyond the bedroom wouldn't be a betrayal of the past she holds dear?
Sensuality Level: Sensual
Luc by J.M. Stewart (Rossi Brothers, #1)She thought the closest she would get to a steamy love affair again was through the erotic stories she wrote under a pen name. Widowed when the love of her life was killed in action, childless and alone, Liz Anderson lived a lonely life, pouring herself into her writing as a way to live vicariously through her passionate characters. That’s when her best friend decided to play Cupid.
Luc Rossi is ten years younger than Liz, has a young daughter, is a sexy chef in a popular restaurant and has no desire to find love. He’s been burned before and won’t let it happen again. The sight of Liz, her quick wit and her obviously damaged heart is too much of a temptation to resist, but Liz is hung up on age, his daughter and the fear of being hurt or unfaithful to her late husband. Intrigued by both her profession and the fact that beyond coffee or toast, Liz can’t cook, Luc finds a way into her house and her heart by offering cooking lessons.
Turns out there is more than boiling water steaming up the windows and fogging the lines of protection each has drawn. Luc by J.M. Stewart is a recipe for second chance romance with just the right touch of humor, heart and heat! From heartwarming moments to heartbreaking revelations, I was hooked on these two completely adorable characters. A fun read with just enough spice and emotions to become invested in the outcome! The older woman/younger man theme was done to perfection, like the perfect dessert after the perfect meal.
