The Luxe Resort has just been bought and the new owners have arrived. Will they make drastic changes or will all the employees keep their jobs? This is about to be revealed at the first meeting. The star of the story is Danielle, a young woman dedicated to her job and with little else happening in her life. James, the head of the construction team updating the Luxe, is the love/hate interest. They start off on shaky ground when they first meet, find friendship, experience frustration, and finally the hope of love as they work together to improve the resort. James has secrets that can ruin not only their friendship but any chance they have of falling in love. Danielle tries hard to fight the attraction she feels for James because she doesn’t want to be involved with someone she works with. I will not reveal if the two find love, so you will have to read A Tablespoon of Temptation to find the answers.
A Tablespoon of Temptation: A Recipe for Love Novel by Kelly Collins is a good contemporary romance story that made me smile and sad as I shared the ups and downs with Danielle and James. I really enjoyed reading A Tablespoon of Temptation. The characters were likable and the storyline was believable. Danielle was so good at her job but sadly had very little else, James was fighting an unhappy past and afraid to feel joy but together they overcame their fears. I really wanted to offer both of them advice and encouragement. Kelly Collins is a talented author and while this is the first book I read of hers, it will certainly not be the last.
