Blog Tour and Book Review for Cocky Chef by J.D. Hawkins
You can call me arrogant as much as you want. But when you're the best at what you do and have the hottest restaurant on the west coast, with enough Michelin stars to make Gordon Ramsay's head spin, you've earned the right to your confidence.
When I give an instruction in the kitchen, it's not a suggestion--it's an order. So when a new chef thinks she can do things her way, and dares to say so to my face, even her sharp wit and gorgeous pouty lips don't make it okay.
But I have to admit, she's got talent. She's creative in the kitchen and not even that double-breasted chef jacket can hide her perfect body. As I get to know her, I can't help wanting to know everything she thinks. I've never met a more talented chef. And I've never met a sassier and sexier woman in my life.
There's only one way this push and pull can end.
With her in my bed, begging for more.
It's hard to patiently sit by and not want to reach for the Advance Review Copy of Cocky Chef that's sitting on my kindle, when you know you're going to get a great read from J.D. Hawkins. So I can't be at fault when I want to pause my life around me when a delicious cover is calling my name.
In Cocky Chef, I was given a main course from the start when it comes to famous chef Cole Chambers. Yes, he is arrogant! I found that his arrogance is well deserved, he worked his way up to own the hottest restaurant. He holds on to the reminders of those who betrayed him to make him who he is and who he is, is sexy as hell, dominate, great with his body and a total turn on when he talks about the meals he puts out. Cole is a master of his craft and more. Will his patience be tested when the sexy new hire questions his menu and the rules he lives by that made him the powerful chef he is?
Willow is the new hire, she is a passionate line cook who finds it hard to hold her tongue when it comes to her love of food and it's ingredients. Willow has had her dreams broken, that doesn't stop her from still wanting those dreams to come true even if that means walking away with a broken heart.
It's so hard writing a review for a book that I find myself wanting to talk about. Cocky Chef had me feeling as if my emotions were pacing like a crazy woman who needed to know what was going to happen with the next swipe on my kindle. J.D. Hawkins not only left me hungry with the way he described the food, he had me savoring the sexiness that is Cole and falling in love with the strong, determined yet frustrating at times Willow. I loved everything about this story especially the meaning behind the story-line that left my heart happy. I need to stop typing so that I finish this review spoiler free. 5 Sizzling Stars of a read from me!!!
She lets out a sigh of relief, but my cock hears something different in her gasping exhale. I bring my thumb slowly to a speck at the side of her mouth, fingers resting on the round perfection of her jawline. She stills under my touch and catches my gaze, time slowing with the deliberateness of my movements.
I brush the speck, but don’t pull away. Instead, I bring my thumb back across those ever-pouted lips, tracing their dip and fullness, letting her feel the texture of hands rough and scarred from a lifetime in kitchens, our eyes locked together in a moment of anticipation, emotions raging like an angry sea against the dam of the distance between us.
Her lips part slightly, I feel her shortening breath on my hand, and I push my thumb between those juicy, perfect lips, fingers pressing against the base of her ear. Her gentle gasp breaks the silence, before she closes those soft lips around my thumb, the sight of them pressing against my skin making my cock full against my pants. Her teeth gently squeezing my nail, tongue flickering as I push the finger inside the hot wetness of her mouth.
My other hand already on her waist, I pull her toward me, press her lithe body up against mine. Those magnificent hips swaying and rubbing against mine, her weight shifting onto me, breasts heaving, nipples so hard now I can feel them through that sweater dress.
“You’re fucking incredible,” I growl. Prelude to pulling her toward me, my finger in her mouth still, angling her head so I can taste the tenderness of her neck, run my sensitive tastebuds down the taut muscles, follow the path that leads me to the front of her chest. Quiet moans getting louder as I run my tongue down the softness of her cleavage, her dress my enemy now as I pull it down and bury my teeth in her breasts.
“Oh God…” she moans. “Cole…”
