You can call me arrogant as much as you want. But when you’re the best at what you do and have the hottest restaurant on the west coast, with enough Michelin stars to make Gordon Ramsay’s head spin, you’ve earned the right to your confidence.

When I give an instruction in the kitchen, it’s not a suggestion–it’s an order. So when a new chef thinks she can do things her way, and dares to say so to my face, even her sharp wit and gorgeous pouty lips don’t make it okay.

But I have to admit, she’s got talent. She’s creative in the kitchen and not even that double-breasted chef jacket can hide her perfect body. As I get to know her, I can’t help wanting to know everything she thinks. I’ve never met a more talented chef. And I’ve never met a sassier and sexier woman in my life.

There’s only one way this push and pull can end.

With her in my bed, begging for more.


Cocky Chef by J.D. Hawkins was so freaking amazing that I am literally kicking myself in the a** since it happens to be the first book that I have read from this amazingly talented author. I recently discovered J.D. during a takeover a few months ago and I immediately added all of his books to my TBR list! Unfortunately due to both a busy schedule and a lack of funds I still had yet to read any of them…so…when I saw that he was assembling an ARC team for this release I jumped at the chance and WOW I am so happy that I did!

Okay…let me just start off by saying that this cover is HOT! HOT! HOT! Being the COVER WH*RE that I am, my attention automatically goes to that, but this time it was the blurb that initially drew me in and then when I saw that cover it was hook, line and sinker. I mean who wouldn’t be hooked after seeing that sexy man on the cover?!

Cole is certainly what the title labels him as – a COCKY CHEF! How can he be anything but cocky after all the things that he has accomplished in his career – from being a famous tv chef who taught criminals the art of cooking to opening one of the hottest restaurants in all of LA! He’s done it all and now he is about to discover how the love of a good woman will change him for the better.

Willow is a little spitfire line cook that speaks her mind, even though it often lands her in trouble. After her restaurant fails back home she decides to try out the LA scene and lands a position at Cole’s restaurant – Knife. That first encounter was perhaps my favorite scene of the entire story and their instant chemistry was undeniable.

I freaking loved every moment of their story and couldn’t put it down! Hands down one of my favorite book couples of 2017 thus far! There was not a dull second in this entire story and that fight towards the end of the book was PERFECT, but that MAKE-UP scene was EVERYTHING! I didn’t think it was possible to fall even more in love with Cole but I DID!

J.D. Hawkins this story was extraordinary and I can’t wait to see what you come up with next (as well as going back to read your past releases)!
