Being the financial caretaker for her deadbeat parents isn’t the life professional organizer Sterling Andrews dreamed of. Tired of being the dependable—and boring—daughter, Sterling decides to have a little fun. And what could be more fun than seducing rich bad boy chef, Jack Vaughn? Except, after one scintillating night together, Sterling’s not only lusting for Jack, she’s working for him. And remaining professional becomes harder every day.Goodreads
Already a major success thanks to his exclusive restaurants, Jack Vaughn is looking for something more. Ultra responsible Sterling is unlike anyone Jack has met…but she’s his employee. Unwilling to give her up, Jack makes Sterling an offer she can’t refuse—for four sexy weekends, he’ll indulge her most wicked fantasies with no professional strings attached. But will mixing business with pleasure spell disaster? Or will they find the recipe for satisfaction?

The title for this book is spot on, because between these pages Gina Gordon really has created a recipe for satisfaction.
Sterling Andrews; professional organizer, parental baby-sitter, woman in need of one wild night. With bad boy Jack Vaughn, Sterling knows she is way out of her league but gives into temptation, regardless. Unfortunately, an untimely interruption puts a quick end to the night and Sterling never expects to see Jack again afterwards. Until he wants to hire her to organize and pack up his mother's house, who recently passed away. And despite the fact that Sterling never mixes business with pleasure, she cannot get the sexy chef out of her head. When he makes a seductive deal with her for the next four weekends, she can't refuse and is taken on a whirlwind journey of passion and romance. But what will happen when their time is up?
I really liked this story. Right away I connected with Sterling Andrews. Wow, what a crappy home life she has come from and really surpassed to be a competent and successful business woman. She's strong, independent, and I loved her. Jack Vaughn was very much a swoon-worthy leading man. Fed up with the life-style he was living and the image the media projected about him as well as coping with the death of his foster mother, he's ready for a change. With Sterling he has found someone that see's the real Jack Vaughn, the real challenge is getting Sterling to let go, forget all of her responsibilities, and live in the moment. But Jack quickly comes to realize that he wants more than just a moment with Sterling. Jack turns Sterling's perfectly ordered world on its ear. The chemistry between the two is undeniable and the love scenes heated up the kitchen, bedroom, limo...and a few other interesting places!
Recipe for Satisfaction was an enjoyable and engaging read filled with relatable characters, lively banter, spine-tingly passion and heartwarming romance. I'm looking forward to the other smexy chef brother's stories! A wonderful and quick contemporary romance to pick up!
