A sizzling second book in a new contemporary series featuring sexy chefs. Newly divorced chef Olivia Marconi is balanced on the knife-edge of a major meltdown. A week in Italy with Sean, her hot divorce attorney–not to mention the fantastic food and wine–sounds like the perfect getaway. If only she wasn’t there to break her parents’ hearts by quitting the family business. Sean’s attention makes her feel brave, desirable, and adventurous again. But Sean is hiding something, and Olivia is short on trust these days. Can a romantic interlude in Italy turn into something more, or will it all go up in smoke?

Viviana's Thoughts:


Italy, great food, gorgeous men, romance and steamy scenes all make “Luscious” a book you’ll want to read. However, there is a great story encompassing the above adding depth, a great plot and wonderful characters you’re sure to fall in love with.

“Luscious” begins where “Scrumptious” left off, Olivia, our heroine has finalized her divorced from her two-timing, sleaze ball, ‘doesn’t know how to cook even though he went to culinary school’ husband and has several life choices to make.

Sean, our hero, is Olivia’s divorce attorney and they have known each other since high school (if not longer. For years, Sean has loved and wanted Olivia, but missed opportunities and family circumstances, never provided Sean with the chance to pursue his heart’s desire.

There are moments with humor that you’ll laugh aloud. Others, you’ll relate to whether they are about our won life reflections, our own self judgments and/or fears.

Like I said, Italy, great food, awesome story and characters; you’ll truly enjoy this contemporary romance.
