Ambitious and talented, chef Emily Ford has the chops to make it in the cutthroat culinary world—which is why she refuses to accept her demotion at the hands of Knox Briscoe, the new CEO of Briscoe Ranch Resort. He has grand plans that include bringing in a celebrity chef to helm an exciting new restaurant at the resort, but Emily has plans of her own—to do whatever it takes to change his mind…
Knox Briscoe made his millions in the high-risk game of buying and flipping businesses. Cut out of the Briscoe fortune by an old feud that left his family in ruins, Knox grew up dreaming of revenge. Out-maneuvering his uncle for control of the resort is merely the first step in his plan—a plan that doesn’t include the brazen and beautiful Emily Ford. Drawn into her passion, Knox’s world is turned on its axis, and it isn’t long before he’s faced with the biggest risk of all—with his career, with his heart…and with the woman who has captivated him, body and soul.
|Knox Briscoe is finally getting the chance at the revenge that he has felt he and his father has deserved. His whole life all he remembers growing up is his father telling him how he was kicked off the families land and never went back. Revenge is all Knox has worked for buying and flipping property has all led to moment the Briscoe Resort is need of help and they have come to him. Thinking that he will save them with a plan to pull them out of bad loans and keep the resort still in the family. What Knox was expecting was a feisty chief who is not only talented cooking, but also a fighter and she will not be pushed aside by some rich guy because he thinks she should have gone to culinary school, and trained under some famous chief while cooking his recipes instead of her own. He finds himself not only knocked out by her cooking but also by her beauty and her zest for life. Emily Ford’s character for me really makes this book. Her story is really what makes this a story. You are drawn to find out more about her and the more you find you are surprised. This story works but I enjoyed the banter between Emily and Knox. How she was able to make him get out of his comfort zone and because of her he was able to grow. At the same time you are shown her past and she must deal with her past in order to move forwarded and when you get to the end of the book it works. A very good story with very characters. I got this book from Netgalley.com I gave it 5 stars. Follow us at www.1rad-readerreviews.com|
