Her sweetest mistake . . .
Cool as a Chicago winter, private events planner Cara DeLuca is a model of self-control . . . until she meets the one temptation she can't resist: Shane Doyle. The sexy, Irish pastry chef is too hot, too sure, too young, and after a crazy night in Vegas-her new husband. While at first Cara wants nothing more than a way out of her sham marriage to Shane, she soon finds that beneath his farm boy demeanor lies a man who can match her drive, both in and out of the bedroom. How can the wrong guy feel so deliciously right?
. . . tastes so, so good.
Shane has carefully structured his career and life around one goal: connecting with the family that doesn't know he exists. Marrying a woman with more issues than a magazine stand wasn't part of the plan, but melting Cara's icy exterior is so worth the detour. Now as the annulment date nears and long-buried secrets are revealed, Shane will have to fight for the one thing guaranteeing the perfect life he craves . . . the current Mrs. Shane Doyle.


All Fired Up is a cute and yummy read, seriously, I was drooling over the food (the romance was cute too (; ) I would never resist a foodie romance.

After some shenanigans in Las Vegas, Cara DeLuca and Shane Doyle end up (secretly) married. Two people who seem totally wrong for each other. Cara is an ice queen. Or at least she wants people to think that. Shane is the cutest sweetheart. But he carries around a heavy burden. As always, they clash at first, but as we follow them along,  and they start really caring for each other, it’s pretty sweet. I quite adore Shane. He’s a hot Irish pastry chef cowboy. I mean, what is this guy! Cara had no chance. I wasn’t sure if I liked Cara at first, but she ended up winning me over. There’s also a lot of dynamic with all the other characters, as everyone’s interrelated and also a main focus (besides the budding romance) of the story.

This book is sorta your basic opposite-attracts love story, without too many twist & turns but still a very enjoyable read. Overall, it was pretty easy read, with wonderful food talks and dealt with just more than the romance.

Note: It’s the second book in the series, but easily a standalone.

  1. Foodie romance! Food is one of my favourite things lol! Hilarious how he’s a hot Irish pastry chef cowboy (huh)? Lovely review.

    1. Mine too!
      Yeaaah. He’s always wearing cowboy boots! and at point or another ends up in a cowboy hat. I don’t understand either, but really he’s an Irish Pastry chef, he can do whatever he wants I think hahaa.
