Taste the Heat is a touching story of love lost and found with some delightful characters. The heroine’s relationship with the hero’s daughter is nicely done. However, the heroine’s use of alcohol to escape her emotions is disturbing and leaves her spending much of the story buzzed.

Chef Colby Robicheaux has returned home after her father’s death to help revive the family restaurant. Back in their teen years she had a huge crush on Jason Landry, her brother’s best friend. Despite the fact that it’s been eight years since she’s seen him, she’s surprised he doesn’t recognize her. Jason is captain of the fire department and a widower with an 11-year-old daughter. He quickly realizes who Colby is — and discovers their mutual attraction as well. However, a devastating revelation about Colby’s father sent her away 12 years ago and gave her a distaste for the Cajun cuisine her family restaurant serves. Can Jason convince her to love it again — and to love him, too? (ENTANGLEDPUBLISHING.COM, dl $2.99)

I loved this book by Rachel Harris. Not only did I fall in love with the characters, but I really enjoyed how much I felt I got to know the culture of New Orleans. The descriptions of the setting and all the food was so fabulous that you'll feel like you're truly there. But, in the end it was Jason who stole my heart. He's so yummy and swoon-worthy, you'll so wish you were Colby. I love a good romance story, and this one has it all. It left me sighing with happiness in the end.
