Book Review: Delicious by Cybill Cain

About the Book

One taste will never be enough.

James Draven is a handsome successful billionaire, and the driving force behind the Chimera Club. He's at the top of his game when he sees the woman he's been waiting for across a crowded restaurant. His plans to seduce and claim her are brought to a screeching halt when he crashes his car, leaving him scarred, angry and alone, surviving on dreams of the woman he almost met in another life.

Della Martin grew up an orphan, and worked her way to the top of New York's gourmet elite. When she's summoned to receive a compliment her first night as head chef she glimpses a man that takes her breath away, but before she can get to him fate intervenes, and she makes a choice that prevents their meeting. A year later, still dreaming of the handsome stranger, she meets Thomas Meenan, who tells her that the man she can't stop thinking about is in trouble, and only she can save him.

This Christmas love story is so hot you’ll forget it's cold outside. Grab the cookies and the nog, put the phone on silent and prepare to be seduced by Delicious. 

My Thoughts

This was an easy to read, turbo-charged, over the top Beauty-and-the Beast style book.

James and Della spy each other across a restaurant but circumstances conspire against them and they never get to meet. That same night, James is involved in a horrific car accident that leaves him scarred. Scarred enough for him to remove himself from his previous life and live in seclusion.

In a last ditch attempt to bring James back into the world of the living, his work colleagues collude to finally bring him and Della together. And what better way than stranding them together in a snowy chalet during a storm with no way out?

Everything in this book is fast and amplified; the instalove, the sex, the situations and the characters backstories. And it all works very well. Even though it’s a quick read, the characters are sufficiently developed. James and his Della ‘Delicious’ are made for each other.

Delicious is an escapist fantasy that’s perfect for those who prefer their holiday themed reading to come with lots of spice.
