Tess Banyon has turned her brilliant recipe and crafting ideas into a multimedia empire. Landing her own TV show throws her into a panic. If she’s not careful, the public will discover she isn’t the domestic diva everyone thinks she is.
Investigative reporter Josh Faraday smells something smoking in Tess’s world. His goal to expose the real Tess goes into overdrive when she lands a television show deal. He secures an assignment to shadow her, reporting on her program, but what he’s really doing is getting dirt for his expose. Things get even stickier when Tess’s family play matchmaker. There’s no shortage of fire between them, and after an impulsive night together, Josh discovers a story he never expected–or bargained for.
"This was a fun, flirty book. I dubbed it my bath book, because that’s where I savored the words, until the water went freezing and there was no hot water left. I loved the storyline and the characters." ~ Bookish Mommy

Something’s Cooking is a fun, light hearted romance where the main characters can’t fight the sparks that fly whenever they are in the same room. Tess and Josh go from antagonistic to lusting at each other before you can say chocolate mousse.

This book has everything I really love in a romance novel, spice, great characters and a little bit of laughs.
Tess Banyon is part Racael Ray, part Sandra Lee and part Martha Stewart. The only problem is she's a dud in the kitchen. Her persona would be nothing without her mom and sister who bring... ...more
This was a fun and flirty read with a good storyline and great characters. Whilst full of sexual tension and witty banter, I would have liked a few more steamy moments, as Josh Faraday is the man who put the ‘oo’ in swoon. I loved him; quick, witty, sexy and cocky he is the master of the double e... ...more
Tossing together two creative people with uncommon chemistry made for a very humorous novel to put it mildly. Almost like the author had a recipe in mind: take two writers, one sharp and slightly acerbic, the other organized but sweet and mix together often. Stir (agitate) until ingredients are m... ...more
I have read romance books for more years than I care to count. I remember receiving my first one. My cousin’s 80 year old great-grandmother gave me my first Harlequin Romance. I do not remember anything about the book including the title. I do remember going back each week for more books. This la... ...more

But for men like Josh Faraday that seemed too good to be true. He wanted to find out what she was truly... ...more
I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I'm in between a 3.5 and a 4 on this book. As with most Indulgence books once I started it I had to finish it. I really liked it, and I thought there was a lot of humor in it. I think my only negative (which isn't really a negative)... ...more

Faraday, an investigative reporter, wants to write an expose on the reigning Domestic Goddess, Tess Banyon. He believes that she is too good to be true.

I enjoyed this book. The characters are flawed and real. Believeable. The main characters had to overcome their fears and preconceived opinions to move forward. How many of us have THOUGHT we knew what we wanted or the type of person someone was, and were so WRONG. Tess' familial relationships ar... ...more
I really enjoyed this fun twist on the enemies to lovers trope. The spark between the two main characters was instant, and I loved the resulting witty banter. The interference of Tess's family members is priceless, and the ending is sweet. I normally prefer a little more heat to my romance readin... ...more
I loved this book. It made me laugh so hard my husband thought I was crazy. I smiled throughout the whole book. I also loved how she put the recipes at the end, I plan on trying them all. I wish there would have been a recipe for the Chocolate Decadence Northwest brownies because I would love to... ...more
As I was reading this I kept thinking of Kathryn Hepburn & Spencer Tracy. A strong, beautiful woman with strong ideals but who isn't perfect and a man who is convinced he is right until he isn’t. What is not to love about this well written tale about a reporter finding love where he was tryin... ...more
