Milo Clearwater is sous chef that has a dream of opening up his own restaurant one day. He works for a reputable restaurant that has a temperamental Head chef/owner. He hopes to also be able to find someone he can become romantically involved with who can handle his schedule. When the prospect comes for him to open his own restaurant he grabs the opportunity by the horns. Everything seems to be looking up for Milo and when he crosses paths with Cole, they seem to get even better.
But with everything looking so good, of course that’s when complications arise. Career-wise Milo is on a good path; romantically Milo isn’t sure what Cole’s relationship is with Milo’s benefactor.
I like stories that have a food theme, it’s interesting seeing the behind the scenes because not all restaurants are the same or have the same atmosphere. Milo was a sweet character and well liked among his friends and fellow cooks. He was humble and likable for the most part.
Readers didn’t get to know Cole as well as Milo and it’s hard to draw a good picture of him without being colored by his profession and how Milo friend’s perceive him. The two barely know each other before they sleep together and Milo does so when he’s having doubts about Cole and Gerard’s acquaintance. I found it odd and I didn’t like what it said about Milo. There were times when I thought Milo was acting like a teenager that had a crush.
I'm glad everything worked out in the end. Although Milo running away from his issues made me want to shake him and just push him to be a bit more fearless.
