Summary

Talented pastry chef Miles Costa is bored. Working at the celebrated Napa Valley restaurant Terroir is supposed to be the cherry on top to a promising career, but instead it's a creative desert. So when he gets an offer to turn his online video series into a career, he leaves his three best friends in Napa and swaps Terroir for Los Angeles.

With the resources now at his fingertips, turning his pastry series into a hit should be easy. Then Miles meets his producer, Evan Patterson, and realizes he’s screwed. And not even in the good way.

It's not a meet-cute...

Evan lives to work and loves every minute detail Miles loathes. Not only that, he seems hell bent on micromanaging every aspect of Miles' show despite the fact he knows nothing about the culinary arts. Evan doesn’t even like sweets - until Miles seduces him with a rainbow of delectable confections he can't resist.

...it's a collision.

With every confrontation, the intensity between them flares even hotter until they're not sure if it's hatred they feel... or something else. Is it possible for two people with nothing in common to discover common ground and romance?

Bite Me is a stand-alone m/m romance featuring enemies to lovers. Don't listen hungry!

Really enjoyed this

Author Beth Bolden and narrator Wyatt Baker were both new to me, I really enjoyed both and will certainly look for more work by both of them. The story felt very original, and it had me engaged through the majority. I cared about both the M/C's and really wanted them to get their happy ending! I did get frustrated with both M/Cs at times though and just wanted to bang both their heads together - they're lucky they ever fixed their relationship :) Although the conflict was a good part of the story, it did drag on a bit too long for me, about a chapter too much in fact, and I got a bit fed up of their behaviour. Then it seemed like their resolution came suddenly, out of nowhere. Perhaps it could have been a bit more gradual, instead of the sudden hate to love feelings.
Wyatt Baker was fab, I loved all the voices, and was especially impressed with the two M/C's during their arguments and banter - the sarcastic tones were brilliant!
All in all, a really good story - great start to the series.and I'll be looking out for book two in the near future.

as good as the ebook

The story is always 4 or 5 stars, because if I wouldn't like the story as ebook, I wouldn't listen to the audiobook.

The performance from the narrator is also very important for me. I can't listen to a lot, because my English as a non-native-speaker isn't so perfect to follow a whole story over hours, when the narrator speaks too fast or too sloppy. Normally I have to SEE the person, who is talking to me in English. It took me a little bit, to come into the narrator, but at the end, it worked. I only have to take a few breaks between. I'm just not yet finish with the book, but I listen enough to give a review.

PLEASE READ MY RATING SYSTEM!!!

To my ratings:

5* - very very good
it's like an A+

4* - very good and will be often re-listening
it's like an A

3* - it's more then a one-time-listening, but not more then twice a year.
it's like a B

Good story with good narration

It took me a little to warm up to the story, I think it's because I didn't really connect with Miles at first. But I soon found him to be a bit of a complex person - sarcastic, proud sometimes, humble at other times.
The story was interesting - l liked the back and forth between Miles and Evan while they were trying to feel their way around their professional and personal relationships, although I didn't like how Evan seemed to fault Miles.
Wyatt Baker is a new to me narrator. I found his style a little stilted, otherwise good. It's a good way to experience the story.

Enemy to Lovers Story

Sweet Enemies to Lovers story. I actually had a little but of trouble in the beginning liking Miles. I kind of thought he was a jerk and wasn't sure if I even wanted him and Evan together. As the story. progressed though he won me over and the author showed why he was the best person for Evan. Evan had his insecurities and needed someone like Miles that was confident enough to not give up. In the end I loved them both. The narration was very good.

Sweet Enemies to Lovers Romance

Wyatt Baker did a good job narrating this story.

Miles is working as a pastry assistant in an exclusive restaurant in Napa Valley. He feels stifled in his current position. To exercise his creativity he posts baking videos to the internet. One of his videos goes viral and catches the attention of celebrities and TV producers.

Evan is working as an assistant for a chef who is running an internet cooking show production company. He is promoted to production assistant and given the opportunity to work with Miles on creating his new show for the company.

When Miles and Evan meet they seem to clash almost immediately. They both are very strong willed and have huge egos. The two of them must try to put their differences aside to make this show work.

Miles and Evan worked really hard for their HEA. It was nice to see their relationship grow. Their chemistry is amazing. This was a great story.

Good

This was a good audio book. Loved the narrator, which was a new voice for me... But the story I kinda expected more. It was good. And I enjoyed it. But it could been better.

Fantastic Narration and Lovable Characters

The narrator, Wyatt Baker, really made this book come to life for me. He gave every character, especially the two leads, their own distinct personality. The plot was lightweight but highly enjoyable. The chemistry was excellent, the slow burn was intense, and the steamy scenes were just that. I can't wait to pick up the next one in the series.

DNF

3 Blue Roses
Sorry, it just couldn't hold my attention.
The author /narrator duo also doesn't mesh very well for me. I like Wyatt more on the gruff, twisted and dark side.
Happy Listening
