About the book:

 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?

My Thoughts:

This was the first time I heard of this author but I love holiday romances and it sounded really cute so when it became available for review I decided to give it a try. It’s definitely a fun filled fluffy romance for those ready to get into the holiday spirit. I didn’t realize it was book 3 in a series but it read fine as a standalone. It was a lot of fun watching Jordan be a groomzilla and how sweet he is wanting to please his fiancee so I would like to go back and read his story.

This one follows another of the Kincade brothers, Parker, who is a chef extraordinaire and a total sweetheart. I loved seeing how much he cared for his family and especially his two sisters. The entire family has gone through a tough situation and it was heartwarming to see them come together and support one another. Gabriella was a fun character as well who has to deal with having a total douche bag of a father. She knows what she wants and goes for it but she manages to balance it well with caring about others and not letting her ambition and drive hurt those around her. The chemistry between the two is so thick you could cut it with a knife and I loved watching the two of them together. I did think the conflict was a bit off for me. I didn’t think the secret Gabriella was keeping was enough for Parker to react as badly as he does but is the end I still really enjoyed this holiday read.
