Summary

One hot chef...

Eric Vail has always loved a challenge. After leaving the Navy, he mastered his passion for cooking. As the sous chef at Top, one of Dallas’s hottest restaurants, his skills are pushed to the limit every night. Unfortunately, his ultimate prize still eludes him. Server Deena Holmes is the sweetest thing he’s seen in forever, but she’s as distant as she is beautiful. When they’re put together in the same training class at the infamous club Sanctum, he knows this is his shot. And this former SEAL never misses.  

A woman who lost her taste for love…  

Deena thinks Eric is the most gorgeous man she’s ever seen, but her heart has been burned too many times before. She’s sworn off relationships for good and she can’t trust herself with a man that easy to fall in love with. She takes a spot as a trainee at Sanctum in the hopes of finding a safe place to explore and experiment. When she discovers her partner is the same chef she dreams about every night, Deena knows she may have bitten off more than she can chew.  

A perfect recipe for passion  

While exploring the world of Sanctum, Eric and Deena find themselves learning about each other and finding an intimacy neither expected. But when the ghosts of her past resurface, old wounds are reopened. Can their newfound love survive when it’s put to the test?

Solid storyline that fits the series

A masters and restaurant story with a sensitive Dom pursuing a skittish newby sub. Lots of appearances by wider characters like Ian, Sean, Charlotte... Great to have Sebastian York as a welcome change for narrator. It would have been even better if a female voice could have joined in and missed Ryan West’s voice as Ian. York made a very sexy Eric though.

monotone narration

the story is good as are all the books in this series, but Sebastian York was not up to his usual...would've been really good with Ryan West.

Story Alright, Narrator Not So

Although this is a part of the master's and mercenaries series, the Topped novellas are erotic romance without the suspense. The story was all right; however, it was a bit rushed. Also, the narrator read this as if he got a bonus for finishing it quickly. It was read very rapidly with little emotion. The character voices are not well varied, especially the fenales.
Although I'm still a huge Lexi Blake fan, this is my least favorite so far.

Monotonous Narration

The story is awesome. It’s funny, entertaining and everything you’d expect from Lexi Blake.

The narration is monotonous and without emotion. Ryan West should have been given the Topped books. They’re too good to be ruined by boring narration.
