Présentation de l'éditeur

It only takes a few days for Ollie D'Angelo to lose his boyfriend, his job, and his home. Instead of mourning what he doesn’t have, Ollie celebrates what he does: the freedom to pursue his real passion—cooking. He begins Dinner at Home, a home-catering business, and it takes off.

Late one night, Ollie catches Hank Mellinger, a streetwise hood down on his luck, about to rob his car. Ollie soon discovers that appearances aren’t necessarily what they seem. Hank isn’t a criminal caught red-handed, but a hungry young man trying to make a life for himself and the four-year-old niece he’s trying desperately to take care of.

Instead of calling the cops, Ollie offers Hank a job and a way to pull himself up by his bootstraps. Together, they discover they can really cook... and that their shared passion for food just might lead to a passion for each other.

I'd like to take a moment and apologize to the author, Rick R. Reed, that 'Dinner at Home' is the first book of his that I've read. I've heard many good things about his previous works, but I hadn't gotten around to any of them. With that said, let me just say "nom nom" for opening this book with detailed food porn and recipes. I probably shouldn't have read this while I was hungry, but too bad, the grocery store will have to forgive me my midnight run. I'm totally blaming you, Rick!

It was difficult not to like Ollie from the get-go. He's a nice guy. Literally. He's sweet and kind, loving and good. What's not to like? And when his boyfriend breaks up with him on their first anniversary, my heart broke for him. When he goes to work on Monday morning and is let go due to downsizing, well, I thought he probably should've opted for more chocolate and a bigger bottle of wine. In the space of three days, Ollie has lost the man whom he believed was the love of his life, he's lost his home and had to move into a slightly downtrodden apartment, and he's lost his job. What's a guy to do? Start your own business doing what you love. Cooking. Thus, Dinner at Home was created.

Hank. Hmm. He's abrasive, has a temper, is a recovering addict, spent time in prison, and is trying to turn his life around. Believe it or not, I liked him from the beginning, too. There was something unabashedly honest about Hank. He knew his faults. He knew his mistakes and he didn't apologize for being who he is. Hank is just working on being better and finding his own dream learning to cook at a homeless shelter. Until his mother shows up with his four-year-old niece, Addison. Hank's twin sister is in prison for drugs and his mom is dying of cancer, she only has a couple of months left, and she wants Hank to care for Addison. Whoa.

The night Ollie meets Hank is truly fate for both of them, and Addison, too. They have so much love to bring and they found the one person in the universe who appreciates and wants that love. The home and family that Ollie, Hank, Addison, and Rose make together is beautiful. Rose is another vulnerable, young woman with a very traumatic past, whom Ollie and Hank find to help with cooking and watching over Addison. When Ollie and Hank think their world has been shattered, it is Rose who reminds them that they're family.

This is a lovely, and oh so very sweet, gentle love story. It is truly beautiful. There is very little angst, but there is family, love, and a lot of food porn. I highly recommend as a wonderful comfort read.

Ollie is in love, he and Walker have been together a year! They spend every night together and Ollie has brought him a ring for their anniversary - but first he cooks breakfast for his man. Walker has forgotten it is their anniversary, but that's not a problem right? He looks really sad, but it's not like he is going to break up with Ollie or anthing...except he is. Ollie has given up everything to live with Walker and now it is over, at least he has his job right.Err, and now he has been 'let go'. What to do, what to do. He meets Hank when Hank is breaking into his car. Hank is starving and has a four year old niece in his rat trap of an apartment. Ollie becomes their saviour and they become his.
Nice book, bit gritty. Nice touch with recipes scattered through with the chapters. All a bit to easy riding for me. But nice story none the less.

Dinner at Home the book creates the same feeling of contentment in the reader that Dinner at Home the business portrayed in the book tries to create in its customers. It is warm and cozy and fulfilling. Everything one expects from a Rick R. Reed novel.
Ollie D'Angelo loses his boyfriend of one year, the house said boyfriend owns and then his job. All in the course of four days. But Ollie is surprised by how little he is emotionally affected by the losses, especially the loss of his job. Instead of feeling bereft, he realizes he wasn't as happy with his life as he thought. He suddenly feels free for the first time to do what he wants, be who he wants and love whom he wants. Thankfully, he has a healthy savings account and wealthy parents to fall back on if needed. He decides to follow his true passion: cooking.
Hank Mellinger is living and working at Haven. Haven is a half-way house that also functions as a career training center. Hank works in the kitchen and is training to be a cook. While there, an unpleasant surprise shows up from his past and brings along his four-year-old niece. He isn't able to take care of her but is forced to when he's the only family there for her.
Ollie and Hank meet under less than ideal circumstances. Hank is trying to rob Ollie's car. Hank and his niece are living in a hole-in-the-wall attic room and literally have nothing to eat. This breaks Ollie's heart and he feeds them. And hires Hank to help with his business preparing old-fashioned home cooked meals and taking them to people's homes to serve them.
It broke my heart to watch Hank deal with his family issues way more than it did when Ollie lost his boyfriend. I don't know if Mr. Reed should have given more emotional weight to their break up or not. I thought it may have gone a little too easily. He more than made up for it while writing the drama surrounding Hank and his family though.
I fell totally in love with Addison. That little spitfire of a girl just won over the hearts of everyone around her, including Ollie. Hank knew from the start that Ollie's gay, but didn't come out himself, so when Ollie is attracted to Hank he doesn't act on it. It is really hot when Ollie first becomes aware of Hank's reciprocal attraction. It happens while they are serving dinner to one of Ollie's former lovers. Hank trying to not be jealous when he was green with it was in turns funny and sad. I wanted Hank to just tell him already. But it never happens that easily!
Mr. Reed did a great job of keeping the angst to a manageable level so it didn't drive me insane. Just enough to add drama without making me scream at my Kindle. Don't judge, you've all done it. As an added bonus, there are great recipes included in the book. They are for the food that Ollie and Hank prepare for Dinner at Home. Dinner at Home is a sweet, satisfying beach read.

Readers should be ready to grab their pots and pans and be ready to cook while savoring Rick R. Reed's latest gay romance.

Talk about a bad day. At breakfast, Seattle ad executive Ollie D'Angelo finds his boyfriend has had another lover for six months and now wants Ollie to move out, then when he gets to work, he finds his position has been eliminated.

A perpetually upbeat person and cook at heart, Ollie rallies to decide this is his chance of a lifetime to do something he's always wanted. With his savings, he starts Dinner at Home, a catering service for people who are too busy to cook dinner at night.

As he's unpacking after delivering a meal one evening, down-and-out Hank Mellinger sees Ollie's open car and enters it, bent on stealing something. When the bigger Ollie catches Hank and finds out the man needs money for rent and food for himself and his niece, instead of turning him over to the police, Ollie takes Hank and his niece home with him.

A former crack addict, Hank is now clean and trying desperately to stay that way. His twin sister is in prison on the East Coast and his mother refuses to take responsibility for four-year-old Addison, a swearing, too-old-for-her-age little girl.

Hank has reluctantly accepted the fact that he's the only one standing between her and foster care, so slowly he's bonded with her. But having a child means having daycare for her while he tries to find a job and lodging after leaving a homeless shelter.

Kind-hearted Ollie takes in both Hank and Addison, deciding that Hank's sous chef experience will be a win-win situation for them: Ollie will get the cooking help he needs for his new business and Hank will get room, board, and a salary.

Ollie's a wonderfully generous character, the kind of big guy with the heart of gold who's usually taken advantage of in most novels. He exudes the warm-hearted family ethos of his Italian ancestry and is the man people love and flock to wherever he is.

Hank is a little harder to love, given he's suspicious of life even though he freely admits that most of his problems were of his own making. However, he's also the kind of person who knows that only he can change himself, and he's willing to put in the work to do so. After giving up so much time to crack, he's determined not to go back to his old self, but grits his teeth and forges ahead into his clean life, no matter how difficult it is.

The chemistry between the two of them is beautiful as they work together to get the business going while taking care of Addison and turning themselves into a family.

While the soft, gentle DINNER AT HOME is a complete reversal from Reed's more gritty books such as Raining Men, it definitely shows how versatile he is as a writer. That he loves cooking so much as to include wonderful recipes with homey preparation advice was quite a revelation.

"Dinner At Home" was, at least for me, almost good.

It is the story of gays building a family and, in doing so, overcoming adversity, disappointment, abuse and poverty. It's a sweet story, and that's probably why I wasn't as impressed as I might have been. Sometimes sweet can be cloying, and in this case, it was a bit too much for me.

The author writes well enough, and many of his books have received excellent reviews. But where's the originality? Where's the distinction that sets this book apart from the myriad other similar books in this overpopulated genre? Oh yes, it's in the recipes, I suspect. I note that, for many reviewers, the recipes that start each chapter were a highlight of the book. I must be an old curmudgeon, because for me, they felt lilke nothing more than a self-conscious gimmick - and I'm not a big fan of gimmicks. I skipped them.

The characters all had pasts, and most of them not pleasant (to say the least) except for Ollie, the main character. But Ollie is all about food. He gets up in the morning and thinks about what he will prepare for breakfast. Even when having sex, the food metaphors abound. Apparently, it shows. He's described as both cute and sexy, but his torso and legs are said to have a heavy pelt of dark hair and a "masculine" little pot-belly. Ummmmm.... I guess if you're into that. It is, if nothing else, realistic. But I don't read M/M Romance for realism, and I didn't find it even a little bit sexy. When Nathan, the other half of this inevitable couple, is described as having a forest of red hair on his "private parts", I admit I began to gag a bit. Now that's just a personal taste thing, but I tend to like a man who sees to his own grooming, especially if he's particularly hairy. I don't mean the men have to be shaved down to the skin, like a porn star, to be appealing, but a little shaping and cleaning is not a bad thing - at least in my book. I know this is a very personal thing, and those who get really turned on by excessively hairy men will love this. But I didn't, and therefore didn't find either man even remotely sexy. I guess it was the hair on the butt that really made me visualize an animal rather than an attractive gay man. But don't let that deter you. That's just my taste, and, to each his (or her) own.

One of the food porn issues that also got to me was Ollie's claim to cook only simple, humble fare, and then to go on and describe almost obscenely rich gourmet fare. Apparently, neither one goes to the gym or runs, so I hope Nathan will still love Ollie when he's totally obese!

If you like hairy men, recipes and food porn, you will really love this book. Sad for me, it just wasn't my cup of tea.
