Lessons Learned by Nora Roberts

Lessons Learned (Great Chefs Series) - Nora Roberts

Juliet Trent has one mission, and one mission only, help Carlo Franconi promote his new cookbook. That's it. Keep it clean, keep it simple, keep it professional...And keep the Italian hottie from working his charm on her...Easier said than done.

This was yet another disappointment in the romance department. And since it was a straight-up romance, no suspense or murder in sight, it was a full-on disappointment.

I didn't care about the characters, I didn't buy the romance; everything was too convenient, and while I did buy the attraction, I didn't see the love—not even in the end.
The pacing was horrid, the story too long, dull, and uneventful...Quite a waste of time.
