Peek Inside Recipe for Satisfaction

Famous bad boy restaurateur Jack Vaughn is trying to find his way back to the living when he meets the beautiful Sterling Andrews, a professional organizer hell-bent on seducing the tattooed hottie as part of her fresh take on life. Too bad she’s Jack’s newest employee, and totally off-limits.

Mixing business with pleasure has never been so sexy…


Being the financial caretaker for her deadbeat parents isn’t the life professional organizer Sterling Andrews dreamed of. Tired of being the dependable—and boring—daughter, Sterling decides to have a little fun. And what could be more fun than seducing rich bad boy chef, Jack Vaughn? Except, after one scintillating night together, Sterling’s not only lusting for Jack, she’s working for him. And remaining professional becomes harder every day.


Already a major success thanks to his exclusive restaurants, Jack Vaughn is looking for something more. Ultra responsible Sterling is unlike anyone Jack has met…but she’s his employee. Unwilling to give her up, Jack makes Sterling an offer she can’t refuse—for four sexy weekends, he’ll indulge her most wicked fantasies with no professional strings attached. But will mixing business with pleasure spell disaster? Or will they find the recipe for satisfaction?

I'm a publicist with Entangled, but Gina Gordon is not my client. I'm writing this disclaimer because her book is published by Entangled.

This was sexy and sweet, a great combo for a fun romance to curl up with at night. Sterling didn't really wow me, but she was interesting enough with her 'bad girl side' wanting to come out and play with the sexy and suave playboy Jack. Sterling is a hard-working, plain-jane type who has been taken ...more

If you are after a quick hot read this fits the bill. Great romantic escapism, I devoured it in an evening. Yes it's a tad predictable, but it's well-written, has endearing characters, a decent storyline and is steamy yet has some nice romantic moments.

My Review:
This is a hot, sexy little book with some interesting characters. I love the set up for this series. Four teenage boys in foster care were taken in by a single, well-to-do lady who gave them a purpose in life. She taught them all to cook and urged them to pursue various cooking careers. At ...more

Brazen knows how to publish a sexy love story. Recipe for Satisfactions was funny and sexy, and had relatable characters. I love a great story about men who cook; there is nothing sexier than a man in the kitchen. Well maybe a man doing dirty things to his lady in the kitchen, but I digress.
