Review: Eat Play Lust by Tawna Fenske

Cami Pressman is a yoga instructor with a lifelong secret love of junk food. Not even an irresistible man can replace the mouthwatering wickedness of her favorite foods.

Until, that is, Paul Hammond signs up for her class. He’s a gourmet chef looking to score some fitness tips, and a date with Cami. Suddenly Cami’s lust for junk food isn’t the only thing making her tingle.

When this sinful chef and hot yoga teacher eat, play, and lust together, they just might bring their obsession to a new level.

I learned a while back never to laugh out loud when reading if the DH is home.  Thinking this wouldn’t be a big issue; this was the last book that I stared before heading to bed the other night. BIG mistake!  I was giggling early on, and laughing out loud before the first chapter of this novella was over.  Rather than ‘reading out loud’ to the DH, since he never gets the humor anyway: I had to restart the story at page 1, so he could read over my shoulder.  Sometimes giving in is far easier than battling over the kindle.

This is a completely adorable story with main characters that are just goofy enough to be endearing, even as they are struggling with their own embarrassment and issues.  Cami is a ‘live healthy eat healthier’ paragon to her yoga students, although she hides her deep dark shame well.  A near-orgasmic need and love for the lowly tater tot sends her into 18 minutes of agony, removes her sense of self-preservation and kicks up her guilt about the calorie count, and her obsession with counting the number of tots she can eat and the exercise and deprivation required after the indulgence show just how deeply rooted her issues are.

Paul is a chef, a gourmet chef, with a few extra pounds around his middle and a doctor/brother who has pushed, cajoled and nagged Paul to start a fitness regime and give up butter.  Food is Paul’s interest: creating it, enjoying it, savoring it and above all, bringing pleasure to others with his creations. What Paul can’t seem to stop doing is saying the first thing that comes into his head, often with embarrassing results.  His gaffes and sheer shock that he just said what he did are not only funny, but manage to show the heart beneath the verbal runaway.  In fact, the DH laughed harder at his verbal mishaps with a “this will be good” sort of gleeful deviance as he read on.

Tawna Fenske has created a story that is fun for all sorts of readers: while Cami and Paul’s attraction is apparent, their interactions are priceless and all are tinged with a touch of sexual tension that leads to some incredibly steamy scenes.  After the condoms have warmed to room temperature that is. Yes, you do have to read the book to understand that comment, but you will not regret it in the least.  This is a fun, funny and steamy short contemporary romance with some deliciously sensual food descriptions, even more steamy sex and two characters who are sure to please.
