Genre: Contemporary Romance/ Ertoica
Steam Level: Super Hot
5 stars, 4 stars, 3 stars, I couldn't decide so I went for middle ground. There were some things that I absolutely loved about A Taste of You and other things that were just okay….
My favorite part was the relation of food to story. I never would have thought food and eating could be so freaking sexy! Just picture a blindfold, frozen grapes, and an unbelievably sexy man. It leads to some scorching scenes!
Catherine was a fairly unique heroine, she has endured a horrific tragedy that’s she’s had to overcome and is still working on overcoming. I liked that while she was extremely attracted to William from the beginning she didn’t jump all over him. I admire her for being hesitant and careful with her heart (as much as she could be with William courting her). She is resilient, quietly independently, and has a huge heart.
William is rich, sexy and handsome; everything a young billionaire needs to be. He is Chicago royalty, but he has skeletons in his closet, ones that torture him on a daily basis. This book barley scratches the surface of his past and I can’t wait to find out what else there is to learn about him. In the beginning William is very hot and cold with Cat, but I liked the way she dealt with him. And I think William did too…It was one of the things that drew him to her. Their relationship is sexual, unpredictable, and over the top.
“I want to fuck you. Hard. Long.” He whispered. “Until you come and come and think you can’t come anymore.”
While I don’t like to compare books, I know that inevitably this story will be compared to the Crossfire series and 50 shades. The reason I say this is because there are A LOT of similarities, honestly a few too many for my taste. The only truly unique aspect to the storyline was the food and Cat’s background.
It felt like a set-up to a really good series, but as a stand alone book I was left a little underwhelmed and not quite...connected? That being said if you love the Crossfire series I would definitely recommend this book. I can’t wait to see how the rest of the series plays out and will definitely be reading the sequels. I really want to see more growth in their relationship.
