Yup, he looks even better in a bathing suit than in chef’s hat. Sean Callahan is a hot new chef who’s had an amazing career cooking for the rich and famous in New York City. He can do no wrong until he does – getting in a fight with an employee. Abruptly fired, he’s at loose ends until his friend Chase Sanders offers a chance of a lifetime – a chance to own and run a restaurant. Except there’s one little problem…it’s in a small New England town Sean’s never heard of.
He spent a long time trying to get out of the dead-end town where he grew up – and now it seems like his only chance is to go back. But there’s no else offering him a job and desperate times call for desperate measures. But Sean doesn’t intend on sticking around in Queensbay for long – nope – he’ll come in, teach the locals a thing or two about cooking and then be out with the first job offer for the big leagues that comes his way.
That is until he finds that Queensbay is different than what’s expected. He likes the little town on the water, the friendliness. He loves his new restaurant, with its sweeping views of Queensbay Harbor, and working with Chase Sanders is a blast. In fact, Sean hasn’t felt the need to punch someone out or even yell in weeks. Just when he thinks he might be settling in, he meets her.
Something about Darby Reese and her cat-like green eyes are familiar but he can’t place her. Plus his ego is ruined when she gives him the cold shoulder. Still he can’t resist her chocolate chip cookies – even he can’t bake anything this sinfully delicious. Intrigued he decides that he’s going to find out just what makes Darby Reese tick – even if he had to prove he has nothing left to lose.
