Five Days in Skye: A Novel by Carla Laureano

Hello Romantics!

I’m back with the next awesome read.

But, before I gush about this beautiful read, I want to wish a happy 15th birthday to my baby brother David! Happy Birthday my not so little brother!!!  Love you and I hope you enjoy your day!

Now back to the review (clearing throat): I found this little jewel while trolling through Amazon again.  At the time it was being offered for free and I couldn’t resist the fact that the hero of the book was not only a chef but also a man from Scotland. (I’ve always been a sucker for a man with an accent. Even if he is fictional.)

Five Days in Skye, is the story of Andrea Sullivan and Scottish celebrity chef James MacDonald.

Andrea is a hotel hospitality consultant. She has just “blown” a deal with her latest client by giving him a black eye for coming onto her and not taking no for an answer.  As punishment her boss sends her to Scotland to consult and land a contract with known womanizer Chef James MacDonald.  Andrea is not especially excited but what more can she do? Her job is possibly on the line and its only for a few days.

James is a rumored playboy, or is he?  Sure he’s been seen with lots of women but is there more to his story?

The story opens with Andrea having a glass of wine in one of James’s restaurants in London. She wants to do some research on his tastes before she creates her proposal. Enter James who comes over and instantly starts flirting with her.  Of course in true literary fashion Andrea has no clue that the man hitting on her is her next client and she abuses her new potential client right to his face. (SMH)

This introduction sets them up for an interesting dynamic for the rest of their time together.

Will Andrea be able to look pass the facade James has constructed and see the real him.  Will James be able to break through Andrea’s defenses and capture her heart?

You’ll have to read the book to find out!
