In her Vegas showcase Getting the adventurer to meet deadlines is hard enough but turning down the flame on their uncontrollable chemistry soon proves impossible Ashton has traveled the world but ha. So My first Harleuin romance finished What did I think of itThis was not a good book At allOne issue are the problems that are the driving force of the plot Harper suspects that she s not the biological son of her father but rather of her mother s one time lover Also her mother is being blackmailed by somebody who threatens to reveal that infidelityWithout spoiling any details I can reveal that these two issues especially the blackmail are resolved embarrassingly uickly You never feel that anything s really at stake That s the book s main problem it never manages to make the problems feel genuine At one point Harper is stuck in South Africa after being robbed by a purse snatcher That s fixed almost immediately It s like the writer can t bear to have any problems seem like they could actually cause any real troubleIt s one thing for a novel to go for a happy ending it s another to never feel like anything s at stake to begin withAnd the romance wasn t too great either I know the old clich is that a man and a woman go from being irritated by each other to being in love but here their attraction was so immediately obvious that it felt super contrived that they weren t dating since the moment they met each otherAnd the worst part was the characterizationWe re told that the heroine Harper and the love interest Ashton are Just Too Different He s a wandering soul who ll pack up on a moment s notice and go whenever he feels the need to while she s fond of routines and planning ahead But we never see him actually do that at any point in the book except to chase after her We re also told that in his TV show he ate all kinds of weird exotic stuff but there are no concrete examples of weird stuff he s supposed to have eatenAnd when it comes to Harper we re told she s a demanding and tough boss to work with but she never does anything to give that impression It s the same with Ashton at one point we see him argue with a chef but that s it Apart from that we see no real signs that he s as unreasonable as the narration insistsAshton was supposed to be rough around the edges but with a good heart but he never felt as rough as he was supposed to be Instead the narrative went out of its way to emphasize what a good guy he was He had saved a poor kid from being imprisoned for a crime he didn t commit and given him a bright future He went to a soup kitchen to ladel out food to homeless people He used his TV show to shine a light on suffering people around the worldAnd the worst part of Harper was how ridiculously clich d she felt She was supposed to be a Strong Independent Female Protagonist but she ended up a clich She s identical to a million other romance novel protagonists she s strong and independent but allows herself to be vulnerable when the man she loves is with her and has no real personality apart from thatSorry mates but this one s getting a 1 star from me Just a bunch of tired clich s

Is lasting love on the menu Hotelier Harper Fontaine only wants one thing in life to take over her family's business empire And she won't let celebrity chef Ashton Croft screw up the new restaurant. Excellent conclusion to the series Harper is the intense one of the three sisters and the one who wants the CEO job the most One of the show pieces of her Las Vegas hotel is the new restaurant that is due to open soon Her problem is getting her celebrity chef to stick around long enough to get the job done Ashton has a lot on his plate but getting closer to Harper is getting appealing every dayI loved Harper and Ashton The chemistry between them was hot and their encounters even hotter Harper has had something of a crush on Ashton for a long time She is a huge fan of his show The Culinary Wanderer reminds me of Tony Bourdain s No Reservations and could think of no one better for her restaurant But she has been extremely frustrated by his apparent inability to commit any time to getting things done When he is around nothing pleases him and he makes constant changes She has also discovered that the charisma he shows on television is nothing to what it is like in person and her attraction to him keeps growingAshton had an interesting childhood as the son of missionaries but by the time he was a teen he hated the life He ran away when he was fifteen and after some early missteps found his calling in cooking As much as he enjoys what he does he is always looking for ways to step up his game At the time of the book he has several things going on and none of them are going the way he wants them to His attraction to Harper is also interfering with his concentration when he needs it most Things start going a bit out of control for Harper when she finds out her mother is being blackmailed but won t tell her why her sisters reveal a secret that could explain it but that also makes her uestion who she is and then she and Ashton act on their attraction Being around Ashton makes her think of some of the things she wishes she could do but can t because of her hotel work When her life takes an unexpected turn she takes what she finds out and spontaneously sets out to discover the truth Once they stop butting heads Harper and Ashton discover that there is than just attraction between them Ashton finds that there is a lot he likes about Harper He also sees that there is a bit of an adventurer buried under all her organization and control and he wants to see her take advantage of it Harper looks past the fame and charisma and finds a man who is searching for something even though he doesn t realize it I loved seeing her try to open his eyes to what he was struggling overI loved seeing their connection as they grew closer I could see their love growing stronger even though neither realized at first how they felt It was great to see Ashton s support of Harper during her trip to Africa and how determined he was to be there for her whatever she needed He wanted with her but wasn t sure he could ever be what she needed He had to take a hard look at what he wanted and decide what was most important to him Harper also had to look at her future and decide some things herself I really enjoyed the ending and seeing how both of them finally accepted who they were meant to be and what they did with it
