Just one taste isn't enough…
I ran into Rex Keene—literally—when I was trying to catch my flight and his muscled, tattooed arms stopped my fall. Then our flight gets canceled, and we're stranded in the same hotel room together...it ended up being the steamiest night of my life.
All I knew is that I had to see him again.
I just didn’t expect him to show up a week later in the restaurant I manage…as our new head chef. But the generous, tender man I spent that night with is gone; instead he’s arrogant, demanding, and terrorizing the staff.But he won’t give up until we’re together – and I’m not sure I can stay away.
Which man is real?
Who is Rex Keene?
From bestselling author Opal Carew, take a bite of Meat.
Meat by Opal Carew is a fun and sexy novella that had me envisioning a hot and kinky version of a hallmark channel movie mixed with Hell’s Kitchen.
The story is about Rebecca Winston and Rex Keane who meet by chance when their flight is delayed due to a snowstorm. Sharing a meal and then a hotel room leads to one night of passion with a promise of more once their back home in Minneapolis.
However, surprises abound especially for Rebecca when she returns to work and finds the restaurant she manages completely flipped on its head by none other than Rex, the newly hired chef. Will these two lovers be able to remain lovers or will it their work relationship be too hot to handle?
I very much enjoyed Ms. Carew’s story especially the sexy humor and the even sexier characters (the title meat refers to more than just Rex’s specialty of food to cook). The little bit of restaurant intrigue and mystery behind Rex being hired as the new chef was also great and moved the story along.
I definitely recommend Meat by Opal Carew.
