Sugar and Spice - Angela Britnell

The Way to a Hero's Heart...

Fiery, workaholic Lily Redman is sure of two things: that she knows good food and that she always gets what she wants. And what she wants more than anything is to make a success of her new American TV show, Celebrity Chef Swap without the help of her cheating ex-fiancé and producer, Patrick O'Brien. So when she arrives in Cornwall, she's determined to do just that.

Kenan Rowse is definitely not looking for love. Back from a stint in Afghanistan and recovering from a messy divorce and an even messier past, the last thing he needs is another complication. So when he lands a temporary job as Luscious Lily's driver, he's none too pleased to find that they can't keep their hands off each other!

But trudging around Cornish farms, knee deep in mud and meetings with egotistical chefs was never going to be the perfect recipe for love—was it? And Lily could never fall for a man so disinterested in food—could she?

My thoughts:
Cute and fun and with a bit of drama in it. 

Lily is a chef and is always on the go. She loves food, she loves her job and to her cooking is relaxing so I can't fault a woman for doing what she loves. Even if she could sit down and smell the roses now and then ;)

Kenan has issues. Trauma from his tours in Afghanistan, and unresolved conflicts with his ex.wife. He is a nice man, but does not say much.

Which means we have whirlwind meets stone. And she will break through that shell and they will slowly fall for each other.

Then we have the drama part that are from both their pasts and brings so something new into the mix. I can not tell you more...

Conclusion:
The book felt cute and I cheered for them.
