Lia Mantovani has created one of the hottest restaurants on Chicago’s Magnificent Mile, but all that could disappear if she loses her lease with Kelly Properties. Having had her dreams ripped away from her before, she’ll do everything in her power to keep her restaurant. Her fate hangs on the whims of the frustratingly handsome Adam Kelly.
Adam has spent years trying to convince world famous chef Amadeus Schlittler to open a restaurant in Chicago, but he wants the prime location held by Lia. Business has always come first… until sparks fly when Adam meets her. When things get hot outside the kitchen, though, they’re both in danger of getting burned.
Lia is finally living her dream. She’s the head chef at her own restaurant that’s in a prime location and is always fully booked for lunch and dinner. She meets Adam one night while fulfilling a charity obligation and sparks fly between the pair. But things go from great to terrible the very next day when Adam discovers that Lia is the tenant he’s going to evict in order to bring a big-name chef into his building to increase profits.
THE SWEETEST SEDUCTION was a great start to a series that will focus on the seven Kelly brothers. Lia is a strong and determined woman who doesn’t take crap from anyone. Adam is a shark when it comes to business, but I loved that he was all tongue-tied when he first met Lia. I liked Adam and Lia, and when you throw in a pair of meddling mothers, you have yourself a cute little read.
