Review: "How Sweet It Is" by Kelly Jamieson


A free-spirited woman…
Eccentric interior designer Mirelle Brasseur is tired of relationships with handsome, charming, fickle men—in other words men just like the father who abandoned her. She’s fun and funky, but takes her career seriously. She’s not about to let a man derail her dreams or wound her heart again.

An ambitious man…
Award winning chef Bradan Hunt is handsome and charming, but he's always honest with women about his one date-one night rule. Between his best-selling cookbooks, his TV appearances, and his restaurant, he’s too busy for a relationship. He saw what a lack of ambition did to his parents. Bradan wants more. His newest restaurant is going to be the best, so he hires Mirelle to help him design it.

Turn up the heat…
Soon it isn’t just the food sizzling in the kitchen, in spite of Mirelle’s misgivings, as the attraction between the chef and the designer heats up. It will take more than one date-one night for them to overcome their pasts and find a way to cook up a sweet future together.


Mirelle has had all she can take when it comes to the opposite sex. She always seems to get involved with men who can't be faithful or find other ways to break her heart. Her last love was the final straw and now she'll be looking for men the opposite of what she has had. No more gorgeous men. From now on she'll be looking for short, balding, and ready to settle down. When she meets Bradan Hunt she knows he's a womanizer. She's read the things the media has said about him and no matter the attraction, she knows he's bad news.

Bradan hires Mirelle to make his newest restaurant a hit. She is the best and he has to have the best. He wasn't expecting  her to be female, gorgeous, or young. He has a strict one date, one night rule. Mirelle makes him want more though and that's exactly why he knows he has to stay away from her. The more Bradan and Mirelle fight the their attraction the better the book gets.

This book is full over everything that makes a book good. There are real emotions, comical moments, and both have things in their past to overcome. The chemistry between the two is off the charts. They make even a simple kiss seem steamy. This is a book you don't want to miss. I never imagined interior designers or a chef in clogs and white to be sexy, but Bradan and Mirelle have definitely changed my opinion.
