TEXAN FOR THE TAKING by Katherine Garbera
Delilah and Jock’s story Texan for the Taking by Katherine Garbera, book three in Corbyn Sisters of Last Stand series, was a wonderful, sexy, emotional and enjoyable tale.
Delilah Corbyn, the youngest of the sisters, was a classically-trained chef who left the cutthroat celebrity kitchen to return home to Last Stand, Texas. Opening her own restaurant allowed her to make decisions about the food, menu, and atmosphere, without having to answer to the media. She is finally living her dream until the new “it” chef comes to town, opening a restaurant and offering her a challenge. Delilah knows she can handle the heat in the kitchen, but he seems to stir up passions she thought were long buried.
Jock Rossi has come a long way in the culinary world, especially for someone who wasn’t formally trained. Now he’s a rising chef with fame, and money within his reach. Hoping to attract investors, he launches his latest restaurant in Last Stand. Yet, when he meets his local competition, Jock’s plans end up off course. Delilah is not only talented, but she’s beautiful and impossible to fool; or forget.
With a magnetic attraction, Jock and Delilah are unable to stay away from each other; sharing secret recipes, cooking for each, and heating up the kitchen. Delilah will need to decide if she is strong enough to not lose herself in Jock’s recipes and world or will her love for him win out; without getting burned like with her last boyfriend.
Ms. Garbera wrote a wonderful and emotional story that is definitely not to be missed. She provided a tale rich with off the charts, sizzling chemistry, fun adventures, and charming characters giving Delilah and Jock a chance to discover they were meant to be together. I highly recommend Texan for the Taking to other readers.
