How a horny chef awakens the sexuality of a restaurant owner.This book has a taste of everything in it - bondage, homosexuality,
multiple partners, lesbian sex, masterbation, voyeurism, etc. and the story line isn't bad, either. Not for the faint of heart; this one gets down & dirty with all the details.

This is my first Black Lace book and I loved it! I wish I could teleport myself into Abby and Storm's world. I'm going to Cape Cod this weekend myself so maybe I'll look for their little village (though I think it might be fictional). LOL

When playboy Storm Dupré blows into town, he turns Abby's world upside down, and opens her up to all kinds of new sexual explorations; things she couldn't imagine herself doing a few short weeks before. But what are his true intentions... and what can Abby do to keep herself from falling hard for the confirmed playboy?

Maybe it's just me. I don't usually consider myself uptight, but the more of Emma Holly's books I read (this is probably 4 or 5) the sleazier they seem to get. Maybe it just depends if it pushes your special buttons. For me, this just read like indiscriminate sex with everyone who came along. Ick. Didn't finish it.

The book had lots and lots of sex. The story could have been stronger and the conflict at the end more intense, but it was still a typical Emma Holly book. Besides the hot, hot hetero sex, there is sex with the same sex (both men and women), multiple partners, some bondage, and voyeurism.

This was my 1st "Black Lace" read......WOW.....HOT...HOT...HOT! Not to be read by the faint of heart...very erotic. Ms. Holly is one of my fav's with her newer stories....but this was interesting as well. Will be looking for more from this series.

This book was my first dip into pure erotica. The romance was kind of sweet but the multiple partners and sex-for-sex'-sake left me cold. I have enjoyed erotic romance but this is different. Sexual tension building in a relationship is more my thing. If you know what you're getting into, I can say that this book was fun and well written.

This book read like a porno movie. The only thing missing was the teenage pizza boy. There was barely a story. If you like that kind of book then you'll love this book. It just wasn't my kind of book.

Who would've thought that food eroticism could reach such incredible heights? This book is deliciously raunchy with everything from voyeurism, toy play and food play in the bedroom mixed in with a great plot and sexy characters! One of my fave books of Holly's to read.

A truly erotic read, but in the world we live in it is a bit hard to swallow that a woman would be as "open" to new experiences as the heroine of the story. The erotic sequences are interesting and spark he imagination.

In a word, eww.Generally, you expect erotica, romantica or erotic romance(whatever label you are using) to be sexy- not turn you off sex. The set up is promising- anyone who has ever worked in a resort area restaurant knows the kithchen and behind-the-scenes can be brimming over with sexual tension! Unfortunately, the author drops a promising premise like (sorry) a hot potato in favor of nonstop bad sex. One wonders how this Inn was ever a going concern- who is meeting the food vendors or running the place- everyone seems to be, well, tied up. More unforgiveably, the author betrays the ancillary lesbian character by suggesting that she really just wants a man. That Emma Holly wrote this is a bit surprising as I have read other books and stories by her that were much, much better. This one was such a stinker, I contemplated just throwing it out after throwing at the wall, but maybe it is just what someone else is looking for.

Don't get me wrong, I like Emma Holly...as long as she's writing about the Upyres in her Midnight series. As for her attempts at erotica, I find it tends to lean more toward truck-stop porn. Yes, her love scenes are incredibly sexy. She's certainly not afraid to go into detail, which I like. But, the plots that fill in the gaps between these love scenes are very loose at best...not very well put together. "Cooking" like so many other Holly novels is a great read if you only want hot sex, but forget it if you like a decent plot WITH your sex.
