To turn her life around, she’ll have to stand the heat. To fulfill his dreams, he’ll have to get Lucky.

Despite her name, Lucky Pierce has always felt a little cursed. Refusing to settle for less or settle down, she changes jobs as often as she changes boyfriends. When her celebrity chef mother challenges her to finish something, Lucky agrees to help her launch Boston’s next hot restaurant, The Star. Even if it means working with the infuriating, egotistical, and undeniably sexy head chef.

James loves being known as Boston’s hottest bad boy in the kitchen, but if he wants to build a reputation as a serious chef, he has to make this restaurant work and keep his scandalous past out of the headlines. Getting involved with his boss’s spoiled, sharp-tongued daughter is definitely not on the menu.

As the launch of The Star looms and the tension and chemistry heat up in the kitchen, they’re going to need more than a little luck to keep everything from boiling over.

My Thoughts

This was such a beautiful new adult novel. A perfect start to a new series by Zoraida Córdova. This book was fast paced, fun and very hot to read (without being raunchy).

Lucky and James were well written to a T. I absolutely loved these two together and apart.

Lucky was sweet, indecisive and humorous for me. She kept me interested in knowing more about her and looking forward to her next word or conversation. She's definitely not your typical female character which I totally adore! James is just a swoon worthy, mouth watering, drooling, sexy hunk of a guy. A chef and a bad boy just makes for the perfect innocent bad boy type.

The romance was absolutely perfection! It was hot without being overdone. There were some sexy time scenes, but it wasn't to the point where I wanted to vomit -- it was definitely enjoyable to read. Those two turned the heat in the kitchen up!

I am looking forward to reading the sequel!
