Review: Dick, It’s What’s for Dinner by James Cox

A criminal, a pilot, and an aspiring chef dance in a stripper bar at the center of the universe...

Six months on a military ship with my two friends, cooking food for the crew in nothing but skimpy shorts, what could possibly go wrong? Let’s see, our friendship starts to turn sexual. We agree to cook naked for extra money. One friend turns out to be a thief, the other is facing his shyness to admit he loves me, and atop all that, we’re thrust into the middle of a war. I was a dreamer trying to conquer my wish of being a chef, not some space fighter. How were we going to survive in combat conditions?

My best advice: Watch out for boiling water while cooking naked on a spaceship. Oh, and once in a while, play the hero.

Dick, It’s What’s For Dinner was so unexpected and I ate it up! The blurb intrigued me-menage, spaceships, and with a title like that? Gosh I knew I had to read it!

“Things didn’t go quite as planned. I was in enemy hands, I was only wearing a miniature chef’s hat over my dick, and I was about to be shot out of the spaceship. Nope, didn’t go as planned…”

With an intro like that? I was hooked. So I jumped on the rollercoaster and boy was it a ride!

Vern lives above the Central Planet on the Sphere. He has dreams of being a famous chef known across the galaxies for his flair for food. As he attends cooking school classes, he works to pay the bills with his two best friends, Ale and Rei, at a bar where sexy stripping goes along with the serving of drinks. When Ale proposes the three of them take a job cooking, dancing, and serving on a military ship for a huge payout, they decide to go. Vern intends to use the pay for more cooking classes, Ale wants to open a bar, and Rei wants to finish getting his pilot license. Once there, things are going very well! The men and women on the ship are not only enjoying the show, they are loving the food Vern comes up with. When the Captain asks the trio to dance and cook naked for extra coin, they decide to accept the offer. Which is how Vern, Ale, and Rei find themselves in the messed up situation quoted above!

Well this book was definitely not what I expected! What I got was so much more! This is my first book by James Cox and I love the way he writes! It’s fresh, flirty, and very funny! The blurb was all over the place and I wasn’t expecting the author to be able to deliver on everything the blurb touches on! Boy was I wrong! This story had me glued till the end! The sexy banter was dripping with insinuation. The random scenes were hilarious and literally had me bust out laughing! The cooking shows were hot! But it was the silliness that draws you in and keeps you hooked-even when serious situations occur!

“You are the most annoying strippers I have ever met.”

There are a couple of scenes that just take the cake-the futuristic orgasm mobile was hand-down the best! Totally unexpected from the way you think it will go, and I loved it. The other- in the midst of a daring rescue- the scene with Vern and the jet boots, brings humor to an otherwise serious situation. It’s these unexpected directions in the story that endear me to James Cox.

Overall this is a fun and flirty read! It does have its sweet and serious scenes between the best friends. The feelings are real and very believable. The love these three feel is evident from the beginning. When their individual dreams morph into a shared one, I know we have more adventures ahead! I wholeheartedly recommend this book! James Cox has a good start to a series. I know I want to see what hilarious situations they find themselves in next!
