    • *** Out of the gate, these two men do not like each other, but there's more to it. The book moves smoothly, it's sleek, fun, interesting and intriguing. The characters are mysterious and unique, and we want to know what makes them tick. Martin is ex-military, an FBI agent, and in his care is Timothy, a celebrity chef who has witnessed a murder. The bad guys do not want the man to testify. While in the safe house, the guys get to know each other.As they bond with food, they also tell their life s [...]


    • This worked pretty well for me, I immediately liked the blurb and I definitely enjoyed this story about an FBI agent and a celebrity chef. Don't get me wrong, there would be a lot to complain about, from the pretty predictable plot, to a conclusion that really completely ignores reality, also the falling in love part is not really convincing especially from the side of the supposedly heterosexual FBI agent. So, yes, I did have several doubts about how this story evolved. But the important thing [...]





    • Screw this-->plagiarism alert!curds-and-wheyface.tumblr/post/145366697506/jerry-cole-plagiarism-masterpost



    • Jerry brings us another great story. About a federal agent’s mission to guard a world known Chef, a Chef with a cranky personality, or at least that’s what he gives off to the world.Agent Martin Kowalski had been first enlisted in the army and fought in a war and came back to join the FBI. His ten-year marriage ended with both of them still being best friends. There’s more to it than that when you read the book. Now Martin is living on his own which he hasn’t done since before he joined [...]


    • Friends first. Not bad but not memorable either. Good sex scenes. Bit surprised as Cole's books are mostly sex but Lotta emotions here.



    • I saw this in the top in Gay Romance and since I have KU I gave it a go Chef book + FBI sounds good, right? Unfortunately, it fell short for me. In the beginning it was a little slow but quickly picked up the pace-- I started to enjoy it. Then both MC's are introduced and while I liked them both, I didn't feel very invested in their characters. Sure we got to see cooking, as expected. But the whole relationship aspect wasn't very prevalent in my mind. They felt more like friends with a flirty na [...]


    • Martin is a divorced FBI agent who is assigned to protect Timothy Covington, a celebrity chef with a fierce temper. Timothy witnesses a gangland killing in the alley outside the back door of his new Chicago restaurant on opening night. They spend some time together and Martin begins to break down Timothy’s walls to discover the man behind them. When Martin goes back to Timothy’s apartment to retrieve his chef’s knives, he finds some photographs and realises that Timothy is married but no s [...]


    • Absolute favorite from this author. Usually I like his stuff, sometimes I really like it, never have I loved it. This book, however, changes things for me. From start to finish I was engaged, feeling, and interested.I liked the prissy yet vulnerable Timothy. I loved the no-nonsense yet tender Martin. Together they balanced one another and ignited passion as well. They were hot together and could also find the humor in so many things. The plot moved well, no surprises that seem out of place solel [...]


    • Jerry's new book starts off with a bang with a witnessed murder by Timothy, a lauded chef whose opening night at his new restaurant "yasmin." Now under protection by the FBI Martin, a short but dynamic man enters the picture. Timothy is a man who has a temper, not afraid to have tantrums in front of people and afraid for his new restaurant and staff as he is taken and hidden away in a safe house. Martin is a man who has learned long ago to observe people and how to stay calm and be calming in th [...]


    • This is a wonderful story following two diverse characters of Timothy a top chef and Martin a FBI agent. Being assigned to watch and protect Timothy, Martin get more than he bargained for.It is well written, with humour, love and the characters have a warmth to them that made me smile along with them. Jerry Cole has written a steamy story with beautiful aromas from the cooking! A non stop pace from beginning to end, I didn't want to put the book down.The two characters are so endearing and the s [...]


    • An absolutely smashing story!An absolutely smashing story, as the Brits would say. Jerry Cole has written another first rate love story. It is filled with drama, intrigue, brilliant dialog and two engaging characters.It seems opposites do attract. Martin and Timothy couldn't have been further apart in personality or life style. And yet, once they began to really communicate, they found more common ground than either of them expected. Just like a complicated recipe, it's not the individual ingred [...]


    • This was another excellent offering from Jerry Cole. Both Timothy and Martin felt like real characters with realistic responses to the choices that they are presented with. Being only 5'3" myself, I loved how Martin was portrayed; he didn't have a Napoleon complex, nor was he overly submissive, but he was confident in himself and his abilities. It was great to see how that confidence played off against Timothy's over-the-top angry chef facade to show the true nature of each man.This book had exc [...]


    • the way to a man's heart,Martain enjoys his job at the FBI, but he feels something is lacking his life has no spice to it. Work home and sleep that's all Martin seems to be doing, but his latest assignment changes everything. For his latest assignment, all Martain needs to do is keep Timothy alive to testify in court, but this chef just keeps getting on Martain nerves.Timothy knows that he is giving Martain a hard time but he just wants things to go back the way they were before that night. But [...]


    • MM. Such a great read. Timothy's life as a celebrity chef is turned upside down after he witnesses a murder and is placed in protective custody. Martin's job is to protect Timothy and Timothy is surprised Martin has never heard of him before. The time they spend getting to know one another is priceless and the extreme circumstances places together two men who would have otherwise never met. Martin is good at reading body language and people, and does not let Timothy get away with his on camera p [...]


    • Very engagingI very much enjoyed the book. It had a good plot as to why they were thrown together. Even though it place place over a short period, when you are with someone for so many hours in a day in the same environment you really are forced to get to know one another. I really felt like I got to know both men and truly liked both, especially Martin. His deal with it head-on , no b.s. personality was refreshing. The chemistry and sexual tension was very well written. Good read!


    • Funny and sweetI love it when an author can make me laugh or cry. This was funny, with great dialog, with just enough tension to keep it interesting but not suspenseful. An entertaining love story with real, imperfect characters. I recommend this book to any lover of a story with MM romance, interesting story lines, and good sex. Add in some gangsters, murder and deadly danger and you've got a very fun read.


    • I received a beta copy from the author and am voluntarily writing this review. An FBI agent and celebrity chef. is cooking than great food! Guarding a potential witness isn't a particularly stimulating jobunless you're attracted to them. And then things really heat upd not just in the kitchen.Tensions rise as they spend more time together and discover they're more compatible than they thought. The question isn they make it until the trial?Great fun!


    • Note to self:- Dual POV (third person)- Both men have been married (Martin to a woman and Timothy to a man - Timothy's husband died)- Some parts were quite boring to get through- Martin is shot- Martin does not seem to have a problem with his newly discovered sexuality and easily accepts how hes feeling about Timothy- Book ends with more of a HFN (Martin decides to retire from the FBI saying he wants to spend his life with timothy)


    • I really loved this book! I will probably read it again. It has a great plot that included some characters with enough depth that I liked them and could identify with them. It had interesting twists around cooking, misunderstandings, murders, testing one another, and falling in love.I read a complimentary Advance Reader Copy of this book and am voluntarily sharing my honest and unbiased opinion about it.


    • Another winnerAnother stunning cleverly written book, loved how the romance between the two main characters who at first didn't even like each other, good bouts of humour and lots of steamy sessions. Couldn't put the book down . .highly recommend you read this book you won't be disappointed.Onto my next Jerry cole book.


    • Oh man this was good I mean it was hard to put downWow is all I can say I mean this book had me on the edge of my seat I felt bad for Timothy and how he had to go in to hiding because he saw a murder go down and I love how Martin came to be is own person and how he would do anything to keep Timothy alive and how they fell in love with each other it was very sweet


    • Loved it!The last time I read A book by this autho r I was disappointed to the point that i quit following him on and , but this book was suggested after I read something else and I thought why not. I'm so glad I took a chance. This was a surprisingly great book. I really enjoyed it.


    • This story had all the right elements. The right characters, the chemistry, the storyline, the flow all just came together perfectly. And I love how the idea of something other than either gay or bi was introduced finally.I read a complimentary Advanced Reader Copy of this book & am voluntarily leaving an honest and unbiased review.
