About this ebook

‘OMG, OMG, OMG I love this book!… A laugh-out-loud, entertaining read… Hilarious.’ Chelle’s Book Reviews


Twenty-nine-year-old Katie Kelly is at an all-time low. The love of her life, gorgeous Ben Cole, took a job abroad and broke her heart, the restaurant she’d put her all into went bust, and now she works in a retirement home, cooking beige mush for the residents.


Not exactly the life Katie had dreamed of…


So when the opportunity comes up to work for one of the best chefs in the country – Katie’s idol – she is determined to get the job, no matter what. But then she discovers who she’s competing against: Ben.


As the competition heats up, Katie and Ben spend more and more time together, and it’s clear the old spark is still there… But only one person can win their perfect job, and Katie is going to make sure it’s her. She knows she can’t let Ben back in – or can she find a way to have it all?


A hilarious, heart-warming story about romance, good food, and following your dreams, for fans of Lindsey Kelk, Marian Keyes and Cate Woods.

A fantastic read, with an unexpected second wind. It feels like it is finishing, but then starts up again, to give even more of the delightful story.

This was one of the hardest reads because they stayed on one point for so long, I lost interest in what is happening. I just couldn't finish it.
