Review: Some Like it Spicy (A Perfect Recipe Novel) by Robbie Terman

Ashton Grey’s restaurant, Sweet Home, is in trouble. Months of empty tables have left her and her partners near bankruptcy, and her father’s prediction of her failure as a chef seems imminent. But a chance encounter could provide Ashton with the publicity she needs to save her restaurant—if the fiery chef is willing to compete on a reality cooking show. But in order to win, she needs to stay focused. No problem…until she meets the head judge.

Celebrity chef Ty Cates is ready to get away from the camera and back to the kitchen where he belongs. Performing as head judge on a reality show is just one more commitment he’d like to get out of, especially after he meets Ashton. Head judges dating contestants is about as taboo as putting ketchup on filet mignon, but from the moment they meet, there’s a simmering heat between them that neither can ignore.

As the competition heats up, they rely on sneaking around, stealing amazing night after amazing night together when the cameras aren’t rolling. When both realize what’s starting to feel like love could easily be a recipe for disaster, Ashton and Ty need to make a choice—get out of the kitchen or turn up the heat.

Some Like it Spicy is a delicious contemporary romance by Robbie Terman. With a laugh-out-loud opening scene, Terman draws you into her enjoyable story with realistic characters and an original plot.

With the help of her two best friends, Ashton Grey opens a restaurant, but after a year, the restaurant is failing. Encouraged by her friends, Ashton agrees to be a participant in the upcoming TV season of The Next Celebrity Chef. The grand prize money would be enough to keep the restaurant open for a while longer. Ashton never suspects that she’ll meet the love of her life, Ty Cates, a judge on the show, the very first day she is on the set. Attracted to Ashton’s sensual curves, her ability to cook, and her outspokenness, Ty thinks he has found the perfect woman. Even though they agree to keep their relationship on the down low, they have a hard time hiding their feelings while on the set. When Ashton and Ty finally heat up the bedroom like they do the kitchen, their intimate relations are spicy and smokin’ hot. Ashton has one particularly difficult relationship in her life, and when she finally stands up to this character, I was so proud of her. When Ashton and Ty separately come to the conclusion that they are meant to be together no matter what happens to their careers, I found myself smiling.

In addition to the cooking challenges, Terman does a masterful job of developing the other contestants on the show, making readers feel like they were right on the set during filming.

Delightful characters, an enticing story line, savory plot twists, and an enthralling romance make Some Like it Spicy a delectable evening’s entertainment that was impossible to put down.
