Just One Taste (Bonus Review)
St. Martin's Paperbacks
I gave an extra copy of this book to a friend who loves romance novels. She does not officially review books or have a blog so I am using her review as a guest post on my blog with her permission as a favor to the publicist. Enjoy the extra review.

Review by Megan Bennett:
Wes is working towards his dream to run a restaurant in culinary school when he falls for a substitute chemistry professor. Rosemary, who only agreed to substitute teach so that she could utilize the schools high tech chemistry lab, finds herself involved in more than an experiment with Wes who has gone out of his way to chase her from her logical, scientific comfort zone. When Wes has to make tough decisions to maintain Rosemary’s integrity and leaves for New York to chase his dream at a well known restaurant Rosemary has to overcome what her brain is telling her is the logical thing to do. The young couple must learn to trust one another again and keep their past lives from interfering.
Just One Taste was an overall good, but tame romance. The story was written in a comical, detailed, and entertaining manner that kept my attention; however, I did not find myself falling head over heal for the main character Wes and I would have liked to have a few more steamy scenes in the book. Still, the book was clever in how it intertwined chemistry and culinary aspects. The style it was written in had me laughing to myself and really connecting to the characters and their emotions. I personally have an interest in food chemistry so the details in the book were interesting to me. I would recommend this book to a friend.
Thank you Megan!!
