Blurb: An award-winning chef with his own restaurant and an inexhaustible passion, Gideon Kent once had everything. Then came tragedy. It stole more than Gideon’s home. He hasn’t cooked since.
Until Eddie Tripp. Fun-loving and vivacious, the Norfolk redhead’s a real up-and-comer in Gideon’s kitchen—and other places. Slim where Gideon’s broad, easy-going where Gideon is growly, he and Gideon seem polar opposites, and yet Eddie conjures flavors that would tempt anyone with a taste for perfection. The sauce of love is already simmering, and this pair is about to dine on the most delicious dish they’ve ever prepared. Because Eddie’s been Gideon’s missing ingredient all along.
Love You Senseless is the first book by this author that I have read and the first in her new Men of London Series.
Eddie is an up and coming hot new chef in Gideon’s restaurant. Gideon is no longer working as a chef himself due to a horrific accident that has left him without his sense of taste or smell. Due to his stubborn nature, he refuses to seek psychological help for his past trauma, even though it could very well bring his lost senses back. Instead he acts as restaurant manager and boss, eying his new chef from afar.
Eddie may seem to be a bit of a scatterbrain and eager to please but those outer personality traits hide a determined and fiery personality. His attraction to his boss is probably not the smartest thing in the world but try as he might, he cannot keep his eyes or his hands off of Gideon!
Love You Senseless has a nice progression with just enough angst and emotion to make it real without it completely overtaking the romance. Giddeon and Eddie get to be friends and their attraction towards one another is steamy and hot! I seriously wanted to slap Gideon for his stubbornness with regards to therapy. His frustration and anger and flashbacks lead to some seriously stupid reactions on his part. Eddie is a saint for looking beyond the grief and seeing the man he was inside.
The secondary characters in this book are awesome! I seriously hope that Leslie and Taylor get their own story very soon! I never want to meet Leslie in a dark alley when he is wearing his stilettos! Eddie’s roommates are seriously unique and I can’t wait to see more of them!
Overall, Love You Senseless is a great read…. plenty of heat but woven into the story so that it is real and very well written. Just enough angst to keep things moving along and wonderful character development from start to finish. Definitely one I recommend completely!
