Just one taste isn't enough…
I ran into Rex Keene—literally—when I was trying to catch my flight and his muscled, tattooed arms stopped my fall.
Then our flight gets canceled, and we're stranded in the same hotel room together...it ended up being the steamiest night of my life.
All I knew is that I had to see him again.
I just didn’t expect him to show up a week later in the restaurant I manage…as our new head chef.
But the generous, tender man I spent that night with is gone; instead he’s arrogant, demanding, and terrorizing the staff.
But he won’t give up until we’re together – and I’m not sure I can stay away.
Which man is real?
Who is Rex Keene?

With a blurb like this, you knew it was going to be a good book. But then you see the cover-yowza! Yes I would one-click this book because of that smokin’ hot cover!! I mean, really! Look at those muscles….. And then the name Meat?!, and written by Opal Carew?! Gosh it was a no-brainer! I had to read this book!
Rex Keene was in the airport on his way to Minneapolis for a new venture. There was a snow storm raging so his flight was delayed. While walking, he’s plowed into by the most beautiful woman he’s ever seen. He did his best to catch her, get her sorted, and then help her find her proper gate.
Rebecca was in the airport on her way home from an extended time away for a funeral of a loved one. While running to her connecting gate, her heel snaps, catapulting her into the most beautiful man she has ever seen! After getting straightened out, she gets to her gate and Mr. Handsome’s gate is one in the same! The flight is cancelled due to weather(oh my!), and hotel space is at a premium from all the flight cancellations(double oh my!), so the two decide to share his suite. There’s two rooms in a suite~right?? Yea, you know what happens!! A night of unbridled passion unhinges them both. Definitely not what they each expected. The next morning, reluctant to say goodbye, they share numbers. Rebecca has never been cared for or protected after, like how Rex did for her last night. She wants to definitely see him again! Plus, Rex promises to call…
When Rebecca returns to her job, as a manager of an upscale hotel restaurant, she was shocked by the multitude of changes enacted while she was away. All due to a new chef firing her staff and hiring his own! Everybody is in a tizzy about the new tyrant in town! When Rex shows up at her hotel she finds out her handsome, caring man, and the tyrant chef are the same man-oh no!!
Rebecca has problems believing that this arrogant man is the same man she knew from the airport, but the sizzling chemistry is there. No matter how much she tries to stay away, she is weak-kneed around him. How can he be the same person?? She tries to say No, but her body is screaming Yes, Yes, Yes?!!!
It doesn’t take her long, however, to realize something isn’t right with him. He isn’t willing to share it with her though. She’s guessing the chef is just a cover. But for what?? Will it end with her having a broken heart?? She’s determined to find out who Rex Keene really is and what he’s really doing there.
I loved this short story! The characters are interesting and are people I would like to be friends with! Rex and Rebecca’s attraction is off the charts! Talk about sizzling! The chef whose specialty is meat-specifically steaks and roasts, is also very endowed. So much so, most women can’t handle his large friend. But of course, Rebecca can, and in more ways than one! I guess that gives her bonus points from the get-go! Rex knows he has to hold onto her, but when Rebecca finds out his true motive for being there, will she stay or will she bolt! What a super fun romance to sink your teeth into, or fork, or…. whatever!!
