REVIEW: Kitchen Affairs (Riverside Trilogy #1) by Brooke Cumberland


Drake Stagliano is a high maintenance man from a wealthy empire family in Chicago. He managers The Riverside Hotel/Restaurant where he only expects the absolute best. With a past filled with being used and heartbreak, the last thing he expects is to find a woman he can't control himself around... a chef intern.

Molly Woods is not your typical 23 year old. She's a single mom in her last semester of culinary school and interning at Drake's restaurant. She's closed dating off her list - her only priorities are finishing school & her 4 year old daughter. When Molly is pursued by Drake, she does everything she can to deny the chemistry and sexual tension. However, that doesn't last long & she finds herself completely mad over him.

When an intimate video goes public, Molly's internship and credibility is threatened. She's lusts for the one man she's been able to connect with after the sudden death of her late fiancé - but can Drake hold on for the emotional ride? Molly will need to let go of her past in order let Drake in. Fall in love with this steamy, funny, & romantic story of two people who find each other just when they both need someone the most.

Nadine's Review

3.5 Yummy Stars

Kitchen Affairs is a light romance book with a sweet love story and fun characters. I liked Drake's and Travis' character the most; Molly sometimes seemed too insecure and made irrational decisions for my taste. I liked the story line but some scenes seemed not to be well developed and ended way too fast, letting me wonder and asking myself 'That's it?Problem solved already? The steamy scenes you will read make you fan yourself, those were hot and I liked them a lot -Drake has some serious talents I would say *snickers*! I also shed some tears reading the flashbacks of Liam, how Molly lost him and her sorrow -I'm too emotional to not cry :(.

Overall it's a nice read and the book ends with a pretty interesting epilogue and Drake's POV. I'm very curious how it continues and will start Kitchen Scandals right away :)!! 

** Kitchen Scandals is due for release on the 1st July and we will post Nadine's review of it here on the blog that day so make sure you come back to see what she thought!  Let me just say - I've read her review and the book sounds GREAT! ~Tamara
