The Sweetest Seduction by Crista McHugh is a fun contemporary romance. Right from the beginning, I liked Lia. She is a strong, independent chef who has worked hard to have a successful restaurant. Working has had the unfortunate side effect of leaving no time for a personal life.
From the moment Lia and Adam meet, I could practically feel the sparks through my Kindle. 😉 There is intense passion right away. The story hangs onto the heat and doesn’t let you go. Great plot and the characters were enjoyable. I really liked the story.
