Présentation de l'éditeur

A new contemporary romance series that's a sexy, modern twist on Seven Brides for Seven Brothers

Never, ever, mix business with pleasure...

Lia Mantovani has created one of the hottest restaurants on Chicago’s Magnificent Mile, but all that could disappear if she loses her lease with Kelly Properties. Having had her dreams ripped away from her before, she’ll do everything in her power to keep her restaurant. Her fate hangs on the whims of the frustratingly handsome Adam Kelly.

Adam has spent years trying to convince world famous chef Amadeus Schlittler to open a restaurant in Chicago, but he wants the prime location held by Lia. Business has always come first… until sparks fly when Adam meets her. When things get hot outside the kitchen, though, they’re both in danger of getting burned.

Warning: Contains a hero who always gets what he wants; a heroine who is just as deadly with gamberi as she is with a baseball bat; meddlesome, match-making mothers; and a Great Pyrenees with a penchant for sweeping the heroine off her feet.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 A little irritating 7 février 2014
Par Sandy Milan - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Essentially this is a short contemporary romance with a LOT of heat. I agree with some of the other reviewers, in that we could've done with a little more story. Also the relationship is founded on sex, which we even have the H thinking at one point. He muses as to whether the relationship can work because they don't know each other. They sleep together quickly even though there is the business problem that is potentially explosive. This is not a deep story and if you want a quick, easy, not very complicated and very steamy book, this is the one for you.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 The Story was Great, but too many love scenes for such a short book 4 janvier 2014
Par gpangel - Publié sur
The Sweetest Seduction by Crista McHugh is the first book in the Kelly brothers contemporary romance series. I was provided a copy of this book from the publisher and Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

Lia's mother put Lia's services as a chef up for auction and now Lia has to cook dinner for her mother's well off friend and her sons. If she didn't know better, she would suspect her mother was matchmaking. Once Lia meets Mrs. Kelly she relaxes and decides to make the best of the situation.
Then a few of Maureen's boys begin to arrive. Adam is a well off business man and works entirely too hard and too much for a social life. But, when he meets Lia and taste her incredible dishes, the two suddenly remember they have hormones. Before the night was over they would respond to those dormant feelings, but just manage to escape making a huge blunder. As it turns out that's a good thing. Adam finds out he owns the lease on Lia's restaurant and he is about to evict her for a more well known and high maintenance client.
Adam delivers the news to Lia but just can't throw her to the wolves. He tells her he will try to convince his client to take a look at some other possible locations, giving Lia at least a small amount of hope. In the meantime, she and Adam decide they should silence those raging hormones.

The set up is sticky. Adam has the chance to put people before business and to grab the chance to have a life outside of work. Lia was hurt once before and it is really important to her to maintain her independence. Adam will find that Lia drives a hard bargain and he will have to make a few hard choices when he is threatened with a lawsuit.
The story here is a good one. Lia is at Adam's mercy, and she will not allow him to destroy everything she has worked for, but she also doesn't try to use his attraction to her to sway his decisions.
I only had one problem with the story and that was too many sex scenes in such a short book. I know it's a matter of personal taste when it comes to that particular topic, but for me personally, after one or two love scenes I start skipping over them, so I can get back to the story.
I do plan on reading the second book in this series soon, however, since I really liked the plot in this one. Overall this one gets an B-

Lia is a workaholic. She has big dreams and is willing to sacrifice everything to make them come true. She refuses to sit on the sidelines and watch the world go by. Adam has the power to either make or break Lia. With just a word he can shut down her restaurant and her dreams. When the two first met, the chemistry is off the charts. Unfortunately, neither of them realized that theirs would be a working relationship.

I was pleasantly surprised by The Sweetest Seduction. The characters were fun, the story sweet, and the connection between Lia and Adam was sizzling. The storyline itself was entertaining, and there was enough suspense to keep me wondering exactly how things were going to work themselves out.

This is the first book I have read by this author, but I will be looking for more from her, and this series in particular. There was just enough of an introduction to each of the other Kelly brothers to make me curious to find out more about them. The writing style is easy and charming and makes for a fun, sexy read.

“Have you ever felt that way about something, been caught totally by surprise and never realized how deep you were into it until it totally consumed you?”—Lia

Lia’s dreams are finally within her reach. Her restaurant is wildly popular, and she’s getting great reviews. And best of all, she meets the handsome and successful Adam who happens to be as attracted to her as she is to him. Everything is looking up—way up! Well, except for the fact that Adam happens to be the owner of the building her restaurant is in and is planning on giving her space to a world famous chef when her lease runs out in a month. She’s about to lose everything, but if both Adam and Lia fight for each other, then both of them might actually have more than their dreams…

“Until he settled the restaurant problem, they didn’t stand a chance.”—Adam’s thoughts

Oooh, what a tough one! There’s nothing worse than possibly meeting the person of your dreams and then find out you’re the one about to destroy their dreams! I couldn’t help but feel bad for the timing for our two workaholic leads. They finally decide to live a little and have some fun with each other and then discover that professionally, they’re very entwined. It’s a really hard dilemma for Adam, because it’s not just his choice whether to renew Lia’s lease or not since he has to deal with a temperamental diva chef and a board of investors. Poor Lia is literally at the mercy of whatever the owner decides! I was totally rooting for these two throughout the book even though I couldn’t help but feel that if I was in Lia’s shoes, I would be soooo furious that I wouldn’t have given Adam a chance.

I liked the characters and felt like we got to know them and sympathize what they’re going through. There are some fun matchmaking mommas in the background and a set of siblings popping throughout. Each of those brothers will get a book of their own in the series so it was fun getting introduced to them. The author has set each of the brothers well with enough backstory that I can’t help but be interested in what she has in store for them!

I love that Lia is so passionate about cooking, and I couldn’t help but wish I could try some of the yummy sounding dishes she came up with! Speaking of passion, the sparks fly off the page with lust-at-first sight for Adam and Lia so I’d call it medium-high heat. It seemed that they had so many barriers standing between them that even the sexual chemistry wouldn’t have been enough. I wish there was a bit more to them that just the instant attraction at the start, but I liked how the author also points this out as our leads wonder if there could be something more than just chemistry.

Although the first in a series, this doesn’t end in a cliffhanger and has a lovely ending, even though I don’t agree with Lia’s actions. It made me adore Adam all the more and almost makes up for him trying to push Lia out to make way for his world famous chef—almost! Overall, this was a 3.5 out of 5 for me!

(Originally posted on my blog; I received a NetGalley copy in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.)

Lia Mantovani has poured every ounce of her heart into her restaurant, and it seems Chicago is giving her the success she’s always dreamed of. But while spending her life in the kitchen may make her happy, it doesn’t give her much opportunity for dating. Not that she’s all that interested in relationships since the last one nearly made her forget who she is. Determined never to become entirely dependent on a man again, she’s caught off guard by the instant chemistry she feels with the son of one of her mother’s bridge club friends. But surely she can have a little fun without derailing her career, right?

Adam Kelly isn’t expecting his mother to play matchmaker, but he’s not all that surprised when she does. He just doesn’t expect to be so immediately intrigued by the clearly talented woman at the stove in his mother’s kitchen. But he’s even more surprised when he discovers that his next big business deal depends on evicting the lovely chef and her restaurant from his building. He knows better than to mix business with pleasure, but even with the glaring conflict of interest, he just can’t help himself.

While the characters are entirely likeable, it felt like some of their development was sacrificed in exchange for the chemistry and bedroom scenes. This would have been a huge issue if there had been any heavy angst or a situation where one acted abominably, but since aside from the requisite conflict, things were kept fairly light, it didn’t ruin the story. Still, two strong and fiery characters with such an intense attraction could have been so much more if we’d been given more insight into them as individuals half as much as we saw them in the bedroom.

The Verdict...
The Sweetest Seduction is more about the seduction than the sweet, with enough sex to toe the erotica line, but the story itself is light enough that it remains a fun and surprisingly quick read. Lia, an Italian American living in Chicago is refreshingly lacks the cliched character traits one might expect, though her heritage shines through in her love of cooking and kitchen. Likewise, Adam as the incredibly successful and handsome business man could easily have been a self-involved jerk, but aside from the initial eviction revelation, he’s flirty and genuinely good, wonderfully breaking what seems to have become the standard for rich leading men.

Their love story, despite its quick development, is easily believable, I’m sure in part because they both seem so open to the possibility and willing to take the chance. Add to that the focus on their relationship, without the usual overdone and often unnecessary drama so many other authors employ, and you’ve got yourself an extremely enjoyable read that will leave you smiling and reaching for the next Kelly brother’s story.
