NEW REVIEW: Cheris Hodges - Recipe For Desire
Cheris Hodges - Recipe For Desire - Available Now! - 5 out of 5 books -
was Charlotte's It Girl! Partying and disappointing her father was what she did
best. However when her latest antic causes an accident that could have been
fatal, her father decided that his pampered princess needed to be taught a
lesson. So when Marie has to complete 500 hours of community service at My
Sister's House, a homeless shelter for women, she thought her life was over.
Devon Harris is a well renowned chef that volunteered at My Sister's House. His
volunteer work was personal and he took it very seriously. So when he learns
that Charlotte's very own party girl would be volunteering, he was not very
happy about having to put up with a pampered diva who didn't want to work. To
say that their initial meeting was rocky is an understatement. It was more like a train
wreck. However, it didn't take either of them long to realize that the initial
judgment of the other was vastly incorrect. Devon and Marie both entered into
unfamiliar territory but they both were willing to discover what the other had
to offer. Hopefully friends, family, and the past would not keep them from
discovering what the future has in store for them.
Recipe for Desirewas a fun read by Cheris Hodges. The main characters were extremely well developed and
likable. There were several secondary characters who were an important part to
the overall story line, which was also very well developed. The story also
flowed very well without lagging moments. Hodges does a wonderful job of
writing stories that seem to be your basic romance on the surface; but once you
get past the top layer, there is a positive message underneath all that passion.
