Recipe For Lust

Combine two hot guys and one lonely girl. Add a teaspoon of longing and a pinch of drama, and what do you get? The perfect recipe for lust.

My life had been one big comfort zone — long term boyfriend, long term friends, long term boring life. I wanted sizzle. Something new. Something different. When they say you better be careful what you wish for… believe me, you better.

I’m Claire Walker, and on a whim, I applied for the hot reality show, Extreme Cuisine, to launch my dream career as a chef. I soon found out I’d bit off more than I could chew when I was tossed into the pressure cooker of the show.

Over nine long weeks, I served up my best, even while cameras and everyone else watched my every move. So, how does a good girl from LA end up in the tabloids with a famous chef, surrounded by scandal and betrayal? Welcome to my life…

Remember Claire from Unraveling the Billionaire? If you loved Lauren and Asher, you’ll adore Claire and her journey to step out of her comfort zone, take a few risks, and discover love. Beware, it’s hot in the kitchen. 18+

This is a standalone book so even if you haven’t yet read Unraveling the Billionaire you can jump right into this one with no problems. HEA included.


When Claire, a young and ambitious cook, decides to audition for Extreme Cuisine, she has no idea how much her life will change in just nine weeks. Having recently gotten out of a long term relationship, she is ready for a new chapter, and maybe even a hot fling or two. Though she’s never been formally trained as a chef, Claire holds her own in the competition which pairs amateurs and professional chefs side by side. Her biggest surprise comes when her celebrity chef crush, Aiden Maxim, becomes a fellow competitor. Sparks fly between the two both on and off the screen, and her crush quickly grows for the kitchen bad boy. As the competition continues, everything seems to be going well for Claire. She holds her own in the competition and gets along with the other chefs, including Shep Thompson, Extreme Cuisine’s host and chef to the stars.
Secrets, lies, and drama abound in this inside story of a reality cooking show. Claire is kind and naïve, way over her head to be with a group so underhanded and conniving to ensure their own win, at any cost. Claire falls for Aiden, his wit and charm, and is blind to anyone who says anything against him. Even though she just met him, she believes his insight to Shep. Shep is nothing but kind to Claire, offering her assistance and a word of warning about Aiden. I do wish Shep would have spoken much sooner and Claire not put so much trust into a person she just met and is now sleeping with, but she is too trusting.

I just finished reading Recipe for Lust! I loved it! I loved Claire’s story. How she came on a cooking show and fell for Aiden the bad boy and then fell in love with Shep and ended up married to him. It was a great story! Loved how the other characters were in the story too – Lauren & Asher and Kennedy and Jackson. Can’t wait for the next book to come out!
