My Review:

Jazzmyn Livaudias has inherited her father's restaurant The Sweet Note when he passed away.  She is the middle of a love triangle between two intriguing but different men.  Kyle Baker, who has chiseled features with piercing blue eyes and her best friend and one-time lover who is her chef.  He excited and infuriated her to no end and is in love with her.  Julian Devereau with his enticing allure, his provocative presence which kept her in a state of unease and enigmatic arousal.  Julian was determined to make Jazzmyn his.

Julian was cursed by one of Jazzmyn's ancestors and he believes Jazzmyn is his savior by breaking the curse.  When she learns of Julian's secret she is horrified and terrified.  I thought Julian deserved his curse because he was arrogant, selfish, chauvinistic and only did things that benefited him.

Kyle made me laugh every time he had his temper tantrum but I felt sorry that he had a drinking problem only because Jazzmyn kept pushing him away.


Thanks Alexandrea for sending me your book to review, greatly appreciated!
