Greg’s restaurant is having troubles. When photographer, Lane, offers to do a photo shoot and magazine spread, Greg, at first hesitant, agrees. Of course nothing goes to plan, and then there’s the demon. Not to mention Lane’s very helpful, but slightly unusual, best friend and colleague, Lexie.
As the blurb says, “Take one stubborn chef, a determined photographer, mix in an evil demon and a slightly crazy best friend, and watch it come to a boil, every time.”
This is a very short story that packs a powerful punch. There’s a lot of story and character play for such a tiny word count. The story races along leaving the reader unsure whether to laugh, shiver or do both simultaneously. Almost every paragraph has a hidden gem of information about the characters, or plot or some enjoyable quirkiness in it.
A wonderful short read, perfect for when waiting in line somewhere. Strong enough to entertain but so short the reader won’t miss their turn at whatever they were waiting for.
My only complaint is that it’s been mislabeled. It’s definitely not erotic, there’s not so much as a kiss, far less a sex scene. It is, however, a most enjoyable MM paranormal sweet romance.
This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
