Jill Adgate wants three things from life: a successful catering business, a family, and the love of an exceptional man. What she has is no job, a mounting pile of bills, and her outspoken best friend—who sets her up on a blind date with the man who inadvertently ruined Jill’s life.

Chet Castle is a businessman who has everything, except the ability to trust. Burned by a money-hungry fiancée, he refuses to get involved in any relationship that has a shelf life longer than a head of lettuce.

Intrigued by her ambition—and determined to get her in bed—Chet offers Jill the chance of a lifetime: work as his live-in chef and he’ll help her get her catering business off the ground. When sparks fly in the kitchen, Jill realizes what’s cooking is a recipe for disaster…

If you are after a well-written romantic read that is filled with sexual tension, wit and humour, has wonderful characters and a great storyline, then this ticks all the boxes. It was a pleasure to read. Whilst there wasn’t a vast amount of steamy content, when it did happen it was worth it.

The copy I received was a pdf one, 226 pages long. Turns out the book itself is 211 pages long, with a teaser at the end for another Entangled release. I'm a fast reader, but not that fast, especially when life/kids/hubby/kitchen is screaming for my attention every other minute.

So imagine how it is ...more

This book had everything that makes up a great romance read.
It was fun and light at times, with many sexy, sensual kisses. Throw in a bit of conflict, a few broken souls who constantly disregard their true feelings and it’s a match made in heaven.

I read every single word of Bachelor’s Special in one night! It took me a minute to follow what happened in the restaurant, but once I did I was hooked… that could possible be to a glass of wine or two before reading (hehehe) No, really, it was a cute read and very hot at times.
