Name: Sugar and Spice
Author: Angela Britnell
Publisher: Choc Lit Books
Fiery, workaholic Lily Redman is sure of two things: that she knows good food and that she always gets what she wants. And what she wants more than anything is to make a success of her new American TV show, Celebrity Chef Swap – without the help of her cheating ex-fiancé and producer, Patrick O’Brien. So when she arrives in Cornwall, she’s determined to do just that. Kenan Rowse is definitely not looking for love. Back from a military stint in Afghanistan and recovering from a messy divorce and an even messier past, the last thing he needs is another complication. So when he lands a temporary job as Luscious Lily’s driver, he’s none too pleased to find that they can’t keep their hands off each other! But trudging around Cornish farms, knee deep in mud, and meetings with egotistical chefs was never going to be the perfect recipe for love – was it? And Lily could never fall for a man so disinterested in food – could she?
Lily's cheating ex Patrick is probably one of the only Irish men that I dislike. He is arrogant, full of himself and just plain rude. How someone as loving and caring as Lily ever ended up with a man like Patrick I will never know. It is quite obvious early on that Patrick only has his own best interests at heart. Kenan proves that he is the gent that any young woman would be proud to have on his arm when he shows Patrick exactly whose boss haha.
I loved the pace and description of this novel. Cornwall is a very picturesque place and this comes across in Angela's writing. I really enjoyed this contemporary read so much so that it was very hard to get anything else done. Kenan is a dreamboat who proves that opposites really do attract.
If you're looking to read a fun contemporary with love and humour then pick up Sugar and Spice now you will not be disappointed.
I would like to thank Choc Lit for sending this gorgeous novel my way and I look forward to more of their books throughout the rest of 2014. I am well and truly an Angela Britnell fan now and What Happens In Nashville will be my next read of hers.
