I had a little trouble believing Nik didn't realise Alex liked him. He asked him out just hours after they first met then several times after that before he finally gave up. Seriously? How thick are you, Nik? And it was hard to buy Alex as someone with two years of experience plus two years of culinary school when he made so very many mistakes that even I - who manages to burn all she touches - wouldn't make.I came away from this book more hungry than happy. Lots of beautiful food detail, not much character development. I'm hoping the author fixes that in the next book.
