Just One Taste Review

Just One Taste - Louisa Edwards


Bad-boy chef Wes Murphy is dreading his final-semester cooking class—Food Chemistry 101—until he meets the new substitute teacher. Dr. Rosemary Wilkins is a feast for the eyes, though her approach to food is strictly academic. So Wes decides to rattle her Bunsen burner by asking for her hands-on advice—on aphrodisiacs

Rosemary is a little wary about working with Wes, whose casual flirtations make her hot under the collar. But once they begin testing the love-enhancing power of chocolate, oysters, and strawberries, it becomes scientifically evident that the brainy science nerd and the boyish chef have some major chemistry together—and it’s delicious



I loved Rosemary. Yes, she is an over the top nerdling. So, what? Star Trek, Star Wars, Land of the Lost. Absent minded obsessions. Cool. She is smart and strong.


I liked Wes as well. Sexy chef trying to becoming himself.


I thought the conflict for West stretched out too long. The end of the book felt rough. I wish there are been more there and more of the HEA and couple time but overall I was charmed and will be reading more by this writer.
