Alyssa Devereaux is used to being judged. As a former exotic dancer, she now owns the strip club she used to work for.
Luc Traverson is a chef who promised Alyssa that he would be a guest chef once she opened her new restaurant. They spent an amazing night of passion together and though he cannot get her luscious body from his mind, he knows she is not mother or wife material.
Alyssa hopes that when Luc comes to guest chef they can turn their one night together into something more. But when he tells her how he sees her, as nothing more than a stripper that more than likely has been with many partners her hopes are crushed. When a stalker makes deadly threats towards her, Luc realizes he must stick around to protect her. Can she get him to see past her job or is his close-minded attitude going to break her heart once and for all?
I love Shayla Black’s work. Delicious was a great book with intense passion, thrilling suspense, and chilling moments. However, I must say that I did not enjoy this novel as much as I have some of her previous works. I think Luc’s narrow-mindedness really put me off the storyline and disgusted me how he was so judgmental even as he continued to use her for his own sexual gratification. While I was slightly disappointed with this novel, I still look forward to reading any of the author’s future works.
Caution: This tale contains discussions of a previous rape, a near rape, bondage, anal play, anal sex, and sex involving food.
