    2. 3.5 starsWell, that made me cry No, not the whole book, just the ending It was perfect and had big fat tears rolling down my face.If you re looking for a fast paced romance, this is NOT it There were times I felt this dragged, but we got to see Kara and Logan falling in love A big complaint lots of romance readers have about not seeing the couple fall in love is very true But you got to witness it in here, and it was beautiful ARC provided by the publisher via Netgalley

    3.

    4. I received a copy of this book by NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.I struggled a bit with this book unfortunately but I m not sure if it was because I had too high expectations before I started or if it was just the book I love reading a good second chance romance and love spending time in the kitchen so was looking forward to reading this book Unfortunately for me I found it a bit difficult to get into the start of the book and that kind of set my mind to how I liked the rest of it as [...]

    5.

    11. Foodie romance enthusiasts, who love a second chance at love with the main couple slowly working their way back to each other, may very well find Taste by Tracy Ewens quite to their liking My fellow romance book loving friends, the kitchen does not get overly steamy in this one There is no dirty talk or uncomfortably graphic overly done steamy scenes to embarrass you or highjack the storyline The language of love here is spoken mostly with amorous caresses and kisses, with fade to black racy sce [...]

    12. Anyone will tell you that the restaurant business is tough, and food critics like Kara Malendar make it even tougher Kara is known for her scathing reviews in the LA Times food section and the word is that her recent review of the Marco Polo was the last nail in the coffin Kara loves the power of her job, but she feels a twinge of guilt when she sees the Marco Polo shutting down What kind of career is being a food critic anyway Kara s not even sure she likes eating any.As the daughter of U.S Sen [...]

This review was originally posted on 125pages I received this book for free from the author in exchange for an honest review This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review I love finding a new author to enjoy I liked Tracy Ewen s book Candidate A Love Story as it was a romance that was different So I was excited to read her third book in the series Taste And I was pleased that it matched the tone and pace of Candidate Sometimes a second or third book is not as good as th [...]

    16. This book caught my interest the first few pages and kept it until it was finished It was funny, touching, and basically everything felt very natural The characters, both primary and secondary, were well shaped, multi dimensional, relatable, and likable The story was mostly believable with just enough fantasy to keep it interesting, and I felt it was very well paced The details about the area Pasadena, primarily , food, restaurants, farms, journalism, political campaigns, etc were just enough to [...]

    17. I enjoyed this book It had complex, flawed main characters who don t always do what you expect in a like a human being sort of way, not a throw the book across the room sort of way The ensemble characters added a lot of texture, as well as the settings, which for a food novel gave the novel a lot of flavor.I like that Logan wasn t an alpha male my woman type and I loved witnessing Kara s two halves become a whole as the novel progressed Highly recommended to anyone looking for a great romance no [...]

    18. I feel like I gained ten pounds while reading this All of the food discussed made me hungry and made me want to run to my kitchen and start cooking something fancy and delicious Fresh corn and tomato salad, melt in your mouth brisket, freshly baked bread, grilled cheese sandwiches made with brie and granny smith apples and fig jam, olive oil hand pressed by monksriously I m glad I m going out to eat downtown tonight, because the lonely carton of eggs and yogurt in my fridge isn t going to cut it [...]

    21. Another good love story by Tracy EwensThis is the second book I ve read by Tracy Ewens and I liked it a lot I m not sure why but I had trouble getting into the book at first so I put it away for a while When I picked it up again I had trouble putting it down to do things that life demanded of me It s a second chance love story one of my favorite romance tropes.This story is connected to Candidate but it stands totally on its own with an HEA and you won t feel like you re missing out if you don t [...]

    23. This is the first book by Tracy Ewen I ve read and I m in awe of her ability to create such alive characters There is no other word I can think of to describe how much Kara and Logan seem real, as if they are in the same room with me as I m living their lives with them The way that this author weaves the back story with the present is seamless in that there is no momentum lost in the memories which serve to give poignancy to both Kara and Logan for so much time lost between their discovery of ea [...]

NOTE I received a free copy through NetGalley.2.5 stars rounded to 3 I had a couple of issues with it, but cried a lot that s a good thing in my book.Much as I love Beyonce and Fall Out Boy, the pop culture references got old fast Why date your novel Some things blew over too fast view spoiler him finding out she s a glass blower in secret or that she never told her parents about them These are only minor complaints, since they weren t huge issues in the overall plot But I guess that s the point [...]
