You can call me arrogant as much as you want. But when you're the best at what you do and have the hottest restaurant on the west coast, with enough Michelin stars to make Gordon Ramsay's head spin, you've earned the right to your confidence.
When I give an instruction in the kitchen, it's not a suggestion--it's an order. So when a new chef thinks she can do things her way, and dares to say so to my face, even her sharp wit and gorgeous pouty lips don't make it okay.
But I have to admit, she's got talent. She's creative in the kitchen and not even that double-breasted chef jacket can hide her perfect body. As I get to know her, I can't help wanting to know everything she thinks. I've never met a more talented chef. And I've never met a sassier and sexier woman in my life.
There's only one way this push and pull can end.
With her in my bed, begging for more.
She lets out a sigh of relief, but my cock hears something different in her gasping exhale. I bring my thumb slowly to a speck at the side of her mouth, fingers resting on the round perfection of her jawline. She stills under my touch and catches my gaze, time slowing with the deliberateness of my movements.
I brush the speck, but don’t pull away. Instead, I bring my thumb back across those ever-pouted lips, tracing their dip and fullness, letting her feel the texture of hands rough and scarred from a lifetime in kitchens, our eyes locked together in a moment of anticipation, emotions raging like an angry sea against the dam of the distance between us.
Her lips part slightly, I feel her shortening breath on my hand, and I push my thumb between those juicy, perfect lips, fingers pressing against the base of her ear. Her gentle gasp breaks the silence, before she closes those soft lips around my thumb, the sight of them pressing against my skin making my cock full against my pants. Her teeth gently squeezing my nail, tongue flickering as I push the finger inside the hot wetness of her mouth.
My other hand already on her waist, I pull her toward me, press her lithe body up against mine. Those magnificent hips swaying and rubbing against mine, her weight shifting onto me, breasts heaving, nipples so hard now I can feel them through that sweater dress.
“You’re fucking incredible,” I growl. Prelude to pulling her toward me, my finger in her mouth still, angling her head so I can taste the tenderness of her neck, run my sensitive tastebuds down the taut muscles, follow the path that leads me to the front of her chest. Quiet moans getting louder as I run my tongue down the softness of her cleavage, her dress my enemy now as I pull it down and bury my teeth in her breasts.
“Oh God…” she moans. “Cole…”
If you've never read J.D. Hawkins before but you like the title, then I highly recommend you pick up Cocky Chef and find out why Mr. Hawkins has such a huge following.
In Cocky Chef we meet Cole and he's just as cocky as you'd image. He's had some highs and he's had some lows, but he always comes back stronger than ever.
Willow is the new cook and she's as talented as she is sexy. She's sassy, smart, and that little something missing in Cole's life.
Their chemistry sizzles both in the kitchen and out. Talk about hot, hot hot!
However, things sometimes go awry and the past comes back to haunt you. It's what you do after all seems lost... do you wash your hands and walk away, or do you regroup and fight for love?
Holy guacamole! I loved very second of this book. Even with Cole's cockiness, you can't help but love him. I love Willow's fire and spunk, she's more than able to handle Cole. You gotta love a woman who isn't afraid to speak her mind.
I really love picking up a Hawkins' book because he has a knack of writing an exciting, steamy book with heart and soul and a whole lot of passion. The story line sucks you in and keeps you captivated until the spectacular end.
So if you haven't read anything by J.D., then you're in for a scrumptious treat. If you already love J.D., then you are going to devour this succulent read.
