"Slap, slap, kiss."
I loved this book so much I want to hire a skywriter to tell the world how amazing it is. I've been a fan of this author so I would probably click on anything she wrote, just knowing it would be good. But this surpassed good immediately, moved on to amazing, and finished at movie-worthy. I sighed and swooned. I giggle-snorted and laughed out loud many times. I sniffled and worried. I raged and vented. I blushed and basked. I felt everything.
Bianca is perfection. I want to just hang out in her kitchen with her crazy crew and just absorb their love and affection for each other that they dish out with sass along with their cuisine. I want to take notes about everything her 'mama says'. I want to record her voice with her blend of Cajun & Alabama twang saying all the funny things that kept me in stitches throughout this entire story. And that doesn't even touch the internal dialogue that she only shared with me. I have a serious girl crush on her. Truth.
Jackson might be called 'the beast' because of his arrogant attitude and his quick temper, but his worst display directed at Bianca didn't have its usual effect. She turned the tables on him and left him staring at her heart shaped ass as she walked away after setting him straight. I was hiding in the kitchen with her crew cheering her on, giving her a mental fist bump. If it hadn't been for her mama's medical bills she would never have given him another thought, at least that's what she tells herself. Not that either of us believed her since she was thinking to herself, "Hell's bells, the man should work as a phone-sex operator! That voice!"
The witty dialogue between many of the colorful characters in this story was non-stop entertainment of the best kind. I am beyond thrilled that this is part of the Slow Burn series and I will have more to look forward to. I'm addicted and have tagged this masterpiece as a favorite that I wish I could give more than five stars. I don't know what direction this series is going, or who will be featured in the next installment, but I'm so excited to find out. The line forms here...
