I was given this book by Net Galley for an honest review.
Her sweetest mistake . . .
Cool as a Chicago winter, private events planner Cara DeLuca is a model of self-control . . . until she meets the one temptation she can’t resist: Shane Doyle. The sexy, Irish pastry chef is too hot, too sure, too young, and after a crazy night in Vegas – her new husband. While at first Cara wants nothing more than a way out of her sham marriage to Shane, she soon finds that beneath his farm boy demeanor lies a man who can match her drive, both in and out of the bedroom. How can the wrong guy feel so deliciously right?
. . . Tastes so, so good
Shane has carefully structured his career and life around one goal: connecting with the family that doesn’t know he exists. Marrying a woman with more issues than a magazine stand wasn’t part of the plan, but melting Cara’s icy exterior is so worth the detour. Now as the annulment date nears and long-buried secrets are revealed, Shane will have to fight for the one thing guaranteeing the perfect life he craves . . . the current Mrs. Shane Doyle.
All Fired Up was a was a sweet, fiery read, with well-developed characters, and story line. Cara and Shane are great together with great chemistry between them. The first time Shane and Cara meet is in Vegas when Cara is there for a wedding. They have a great time together and end up married. They don’t see each other until Shane shows up in Chicago working in Jack Kilroy’s restaurant Sarriette’s. The sparks and chemistry is still there, and Cara is fighting her attraction to Shane. She calls her lawyer and has him to draw up the papers for an annulment. Shane does not sign them and wants to try to make a go of their relationship, but he knows that if she finds out the true reason that he really wanted a job a Sarriette’s she would never forgive him. As their relationship progresses they open up to each other, and end up falling in love. I really liked the way she handled the way of telling about anorexia, and how todays world messes with a woman’s image of herself with always showing really thin models. In today’s world that is not always the truth, we are a more full-figured nation and these young girls are given an image problem by our marketing strategies of showing thinner airbrushed models. I loved this book and give it 5/5 stars. Kate Meader is an author I will recommend to everyone.
