I liked this book. It was fun, well written, had smart characters that made good choices and not silly. The one thing that bugged me throughout the story [SPOILER ALERT] was the $5000 that Alanna put away in RJ's presence. All I could do was worry that he was going to steal it and that was going to be one of those twists that books sometimes have and I was anxious about it the whole time. I was so relieved when nothing happened with it. I think the author was trying to say that Alanna trusted RJ enough and foreshadow their future rather than alluding too some badness in the future of their relationship. Love the epilogue as well.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 042524766X, Paperback)

As the executive culinary assistant to celebrity Chicago chef Patrick Conlon, Alana Ostermann works behind the scenes—and that’s just the way she likes it. But with developing recipes for Patrick’s cookbooks, training his sous chefs, picking out the perfect birthday gifts for his ex-mother-in-law, and dealing with the fallout from his romantic escapades, she barely has a personal life, much less time to spend with her combo platter of a mutt, Dumpling.

Then a fluke online connection brings her RJ, a transplant from Tennessee, who adds some Southern spice to her life. Suddenly Alana’s priorities shift, and Patrick—and Dumpling—find themselves facing a rival for her time and affection. With RJ in the mix, and some serious decisions to make about her personal and professional future, Alana must discover the perfect balance of work and play, money and meaning, to bring it all to the table—one delicious dish at a time…
