Meet the Kincade brothers: they’ll go to any lengths to protect their legacy—but what happens when love gets in the way…?
As if the holidays weren’t stressful enough, Parker Kincade has a restaurant to open. The fact that his Groomzilla brother wants the place for his perfect Christmas wedding doesn’t help. Then there’s the stunning woman who appoints herself his new chef before he’s ready to hire one. But one look at Gabriella Montani has Parker reassessing needs vs. wants. And that’s before he tastes what she has to offer…
Gabriella doesn’t need to get tangled up with a sexy man. What she needs is a job and a chance to prove herself. A place in Parker’s kitchen could give her the opportunity she’s been waiting for. The heat between them is sizzling, but a place in his bed could be downright dangerous. Neither Christmas nor men have ever lived up to her expectations, but Parker has soulmate written all over him. Should Gabi let herself be swept up in his holiday magic, or will it disappear before Christmas Day?
SASCHA DARLINGTON’S REVIEW
While it took me a couple of chapters to warm up to Gabi and Parker, I was glad I stuck with it as I eventually enjoyed their story.
I’ve always been a fan of food-oriented novels, restaurants and the creation of gourmet meals fascinate me, so I loved that aspect of Tangled Up in Tinsel. I loved how Gabi and Parker came to their love of food from two different angles, hers from family, his from teenage misadventures, and how it brought them together.
The repartee between Gabi and Parker is fast, sexy, and fun, and that may be an apt description of the novel as a whole. I was impressed that Parker didn’t feel put-off by Gabi’s frequent pushiness and insertion in his life.
The family atmosphere makes a very warm story on its own and I found myself thinking at times how I would happily read a story just about the Kincade family celebrating a holiday, because their antics would never be boring!
And, for the foodies, at the end of the novel there are some recipes of some of the dishes mentioned in the book. Ricotta cookies!
I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
