    **ARC provided by Premier Digital Publishing via NetGalley in exchange for my honest review**I'm not happy to be giving this book one star, but in my defense, a free copy was provided to me for my honest opinion, so that's what I'm giving.The cover is the only think I like about this book.There is only so many Ana-ish heroines I can handle, who stumbles, falls to their knees and when they look up, there he is. Then there are pages upon pages of descriptions of him, his eyes, his physique and of course his silver tie. 6 to 8 pages of drooling over a stranger before answering "uhm, I'm fine".The heroine of this story is a over-analyzer on steroids. There are more question marks in this story than there are commas. Why did I do that? Why did he looked at me like that? Did I really want to know? What did he mean by that? Why me? What's wrong with me? It goes on and on and on. There were parts with 4 or 5 questions in a row. Not only it was exhausting it was annoying as hell.Her being a photographer and loving her job is fine. I get it, she is passionate about what she does, but a lot of those descriptions of her work were way too long.And then we have our billionaire. A man of many talents. Of course he know everything about her. Nowadays all billionaires stalk their women and do thorough background checks before approaching them. The first time they were at the park, he brought her gloves, because he knew she never wore them. How in the world does he know that? The next "must do" is to barge in into her apartment when she's not at home and cook for her. Then there are extravagant gifts like dresses, underwear, diamond bracelets and sixty thousand dollar watches.There was one scene that I found completely ridiculous. She has this state of the art kitchen. The first time he comes to her place we find out that she doesn't even know how to use her fancy AGA equipment. Even our billionaire rolls his eyes at that.The book is called A Taste of You, so of course there is a lot of eating, tasting, licking, biting and chewing. A lot overused sentences like "I want to taste you. I'm going to taste you. You taste so good. I miss your taste. I want to taste you for the rest of my life." Meh.At first it's somewhat erotic. But they never stop eating. And it gets boring pretty fast. There was one particular scene where it felt like he fed her two buckets of food. It was ridiculous. Taste this. Now close your eyes and taste this. How about this? I want you to try this. OMG!The book was obviously written using FSoG formula. It looses couple of stars for lack of originality, minus one star for underdeveloped character and especially their backgrounds. If you choose to create characters with tortured pasts, it should be written to give readers better understanding about where they are coming from. I also took away one star for bad dialogs. Some of the things they said to one another made little to no sense. Minus one star for over described and repetitive descriptions of people and places. And the last star goes for a completely useless character she calls best friend. He is the king of bad advices. So there you have it.If you are looking for a read with a hero who completely disregards heroines feelings, because he knows better what she needs than she does, this book is most defiantly for you.

    4.5 Sensual Sexy Stars...Loved it!! William.....sexy billionair, entrepreneur, lover of all things food and women...[image error]Cat.....sexy, emotionally wounded food photographer running from her past....[image error]I really enjoyed this one.. I had high hopes for it considering I love steamy books and I love food.. put them together and wow!! William is a billionaire and a gourmand.. A gourmand is a person that takes great pleasure in food. He's all about getting the true taste out of everything.. including Cat. Cat photographs meals professionally for restaurants and this is how they initially meet. When he sees her for the first time he is completely mesmerized...when Cat sees William her panties practically explode at first sight..William's pursuit of Cat is relentless.. he usually has a different woman on his arm every few weeks and feels nothing for them. Something about Cat though just totally rocks his world and he just HAS TO HAVE HER. Cat wants William just as much but she is scared to get involved in a relationship with him. She wants the hot sex but is not sure about committing. She's struggling with a very tragic event in her past and she's been living in a bubble for the last 3 years. William's about to burst that bubble and get want he wants.. HER.There are some SERIOUS sexy times, especially the kitchen. The scenes where highly erotic and written in a very sensual way and explicit. William just screemed sex off the ages.. he was just so damn sexy--the way he spoke and acted... very very sexy. He reminded me of Gabriel Emerson from Gabriel's Inferno. I really did enjoy this book and although it ended with a major cliffhanger, the cliffhanger should not turn you off from reading this right away. It has to do more with William on a perssonal level than it does with him and Cat as a couple. I was like, WTF! at the end.. but it was a good place to leave off. It's made me extreamly anxious to find out what's going to happen next and I can't wait to read the next book. I would recommend this book to anyone that enjoys their books steamy and erotic. If you love a sexy, possessive, rich guy then William is your type of man!

    I was lucky enough to be asked to read an ARC of this fun and sexy book! Once I got into the story, I couldn't put it down. William is sexy, wealthy, and yummy! The food connections have made me look at items in my kitchen in a whole new way! lolThe story is great! I loved the sexy scenes, but I loved even more that there were two great characters with real life stories and I found myself wanting to know more and more about them. I believe the release date is in May. My recommendation... PUT THIS ON YOUR TBR LIST! (I know I sound a little controlling - it's just William wearing off on me) But, seriously do it! You won't regret it!

    Initial reaction: This was pretty much Fifty Shades of Grey with foodplay.That is not a compliment.Full review:Some of you may know I sometimes have songs to pop into my mind whenever I read a book if it coincides with thematics or moods that I see in a work. For some reason, while reading this book, Madonna's "Masterpiece" kept coming to mind. Maybe it was the art connection that was briefly featured in the scene where Catherine and William went to the art gallery.I'll admit I'm not sure where to start in reflecting on Sorcha Grace's "A Taste of You." I'll admit that in theory, much of this book could've been pretty sexy and interesting to read about. Sure, I was weary with the whole premise of the wealthy billionaire lover (because it's been done so much in erotica lately and not very well, sadly). Yet this work had the distinction of featuring a heroine who specialized in food photography,a factor that I personally looked forward to reading about. I couldn't have been more disappointed with this work at the level of its presentation and progression."A Taste For You" was so utterly ridiculous and an unapologetic copycat of "Fifty Shades of Grey" that by the time I was done, I felt like throwing my e-reader across the room. Even down to the repeated "Oh mys". The writing in this is overexpository, indulgent, and repetitive, with many instances of telling, but not showing from the heroine's perspective. I couldn't stand her voice, between the instalove she experiences over William to the mundane depictions of her work, which were overdone for the subject matter. I do believe there were numerous contradictory depictions of William's eyes, and sometimes the heroine would spend several pages focusing on that one element, which didn't do much for the story. I have to wonder - are William's eyes blue-gray, silver, midnight blue, or what? Because all of those are completely different colors and each of those descriptors, among others, were used at least once, if not multiple times by the heroine.The cliches are numerous, from the gay best friend (Beckett, who I couldn't be bothered with because he gave terrible advice to the heroine and wasn't a standout character) to the troubled pasts of both lovers, to the fact that William would somehow conveniently show up wherever the heroine would be, even at her house. It didn't feel realistic or sexy at all. I was surprised at one point when the couple were making out in a freezer and the heroine takes notice of the pieces of meat and fish in the area. Least appealing place to make out ever.I don't find blatant disregard for a lover's wishes sexy in any capacity, which is what William did in many instances of this book. He lied many times about his past, usually for no good reason and while Catherine would shout him down, saying that she never wanted to see him again, she would run back to him just as quickly - and it was frustrating to watch when their chemistry was threadbare at best.I don't mince words when I say this is "Fifty Shades" with foodplay, because there are a lot of food notations here that aren't really depicted well. Even the sex scenes feel repetitive, with William asserting over and over that he wants to taste the heroine and that she "smells good." There's the dirty talk, but coming from William, it's more creepy and condescending than anything close to sensuous.I just couldn't be bothered with this book and I think I'm stopping my journey with the series here, even with the cliffhanger of an ending that lends to the promise of developing William's past in the next work. I couldn't muster enough investment in either William or Catherine to continue watching their respective relationship.Not recommended.Overall score: 0.5/5Note: I received this as an ARC from NetGalley, from the publisher.

    3.5 stars......William Lambourne is a billionaire CEO of WML Capital Management and what he wants, he gets. He literally runs into food photographer Catherine Kelly outside a photoshoot and it's another one of those typical gotta have her and NOW moments we've seen a lot lately. Cat is a widow and pushes him back until she just can't fight the attraction any longer. I want to fuck you. Hard. Long," he whispered. "Until you come and come and think you can't come anymore." (So much for "Hi, I'm William. Nice to meet you.")This book has a lot of scenes involving food- scenes made to seduce with tastes and feeding of each other. At first, it was pretty hot but it got a bit old. I mean, the words "I want to taste you" came up a lot. The book has a lot of.......wait for it.....FSoG parallels but I didn't get quite the build up in this book as with that series. Scenes were hot but didn't capture me like many other books in the genre deliver. Cat also kinda drove me batsh&t crazy with her love me/love me not internal dialogue and constant "should I stay or should I go.". That song would be a great companion to this book. Ha. And the ending....what was that? Yes, it's a cliffy but it came straight out of left field. I was like,"Huh?" A cliffy like that, if we might've had more development of the story could've really been an "omg" moment.....but more of a "huh?" moment. Vague but no spoilers here. It was readable. Not my best of the best. If you are a billionaire controlling uber hot stud fan, you may like this one, I just think the delivery could've been better. Maybe more character development and background than what we got prior to the bombshell they threw in the end......Arc provided by Premier Digital Publishing via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    The promotion for this book compares it to Fifty Shades of Gray and Bared to You, which had me reluctant to read it. In fact, I agreed to do so before I knew about the comparison. While there are certainly some common themes, the story has a very different vibe that sets it apart in my opinion. Similarities to 50 Shades and BaredWilliam Lambourne is über wealthy, is somewhat secretive and is gorgeous. That's about it as he's has none of Christian's cruelty or Gideon's stalker-like behaviors. He's pretty normal in most aspects and any over the top behaviors would fit someone in his lifestyle. Catherine Kelly is about the same age of Ana and Eva but has a successful career independent of William's life. The Set UpCatherine and William meet when she shows up as the replacement for another injured photographer at a food shoot for a new restaurant scheduled for opening in Chicago. Their connection and attraction is immediate and he seeks her out. She's fairly new to the city, escaping the heartache of a tragic past in Santa Cruz. She's not sure she's ready to be in a relationship, especially with someone as complicated and puzzling as William. The IssuesWilliam runs hot and cold, keeping Catherine off balance at a time when it's the last thing she needs. Catherine has a tendency to bail whenever his commitment to her appears questionable. They have an amazing sexual attraction and it gets in the way of their communication. What Works WellBoth Catherine's best friend, Beckett, and William are amazing cooks and some really delectable dishes are served up regularly, stimulating your appetite often. I had never heard of an Aga stove and now I want one!!! The difference, though, is William incorporates his epicurean talents into his bedroom (or kitchen floor!) romps and it is erotic! William has some really creative moves and it was definitely a highlight. Catherine's young and her reactions sometimes are fitting for her level of experience. She's not naive and brings out better behavior from William. You get that he cares deeply for her but can be insensitive to how he comes across. The story is interesting and so is Catherine. She's the one with a complicated past. And, this book has the best, most sexy cover!What Doesn't Work Quite as WellCatherine has a really great best friend that is interesting in his own right but is really made to be a sidekick for the story. Beckett certainly could have shown up with more of a life while being the dutiful best friend. He's pretty amazing and the relationship wasn't balanced. Catherine's frequent pronouncements that she and William were over got a little old after awhile. The Bottom LineI enjoyed the story, Catherine's interesting back story and William's talent in combining food and sex. They've done most of the hard work in creating relationship and the shocker at the end seems to pivot the story in a different (and intriguing) direction. The characters are really likeable and both are on equal footing in the relationship, even though William's used to getting his way but Catherine holds her own capably. I like where the series seems to be heading and am along for the ride.(I received an ARC from the author)

    3.5 starsEpicurean - Devoted to the pursuit of sensual pleasure, especially to the enjoyment of good food and comfort.Hmmm, I liked this one but it didn't blew me away. The writing was actually decent and characters were written well. However, it took me so long to connect to either William or Catherine. Don't get me wrong, they both actually have great back stories. Catherine was a widow and the way she lost her husband was just heartbreaking. William's story was equally tragic but for the life of me, I was really having a hard time connecting to them. This is one of those, 'It's not you, it's me,' kind of book. There's nothing really wrong with it, it's just that there's nothing extraordinary about it as well. Oddly enough, I would read the second book of the series because I felt that I was actually getting there, you know, finally connecting to the characters and the BAM! The dreaded cliffhanger. *Facepalm* So I will wait again for the second book to see if what I felt during those last 20% was a fluke or not. *ARC given by Premier Digital Publishing via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    Recipe for 'A taste of You' ♥ Ingredients & Directions ♥ ♥ One extra large spoonful of sexy, dominant billionaire bachelor William Lambourne.♥ Two equally large spoonfuls of his stormy eyes, chiseled jaw and sensuous lips.♥ Add in one smaller serving of beautiful and talented food photographer Catherine Kelly.♥ Sprinkle in some low self esteem, some 'will they/won't they angst, some painful dark secrets just waiting to be exposed and plenty of previous life traumas.♥ Stir in liberal servings of hot, sweaty, erotic sex, a grey and black tie, some frozen cherries, a blindfold and some "you're mine" and "come now" dialogue.♥ Mix vigorously until your peaks are stiff and your juices are flowing. Ok let me start my review with the parts of the story that I felt let the book down a bit and then I can end with all the parts I loved.So I was immediately interested in this book when I read "For lovers of Fifty Shades of Grey and Bared to You comes a deliciously sexy romance with a culinary twist!" .........what I hadn't realised was just quite how similar these books would be, in fact in parts it was so similar I could have been reading the same books! Don't get me wrong I love these 'Fifty Shades/Bared to You' type books, I love the domineering, controlling alphas and the feisty heroines, and I knew from the description what I was getting myself into but at times I couldn't help thinking the whole silver/black tie thing, the constant "come now" and "your mine" phrases grew a little old and took away from the already interesting plot.My second and final issue was the ending......I'm not even going to comment (much) on the ending.....WTF.......not a cliff hanger....more like a sheer drop off a cliff.......seriously I was sat there for good few minutes still trying to swipe the page on my iPad, thinking that surely that wasn't the end, was it???.However these issues aside now to the parts I did like......When the author moved away from the predictable/stereotypical 'sure fire ways to sell a Fifty Shades/Crossfire type book'........when she moved away from all the grey ties, the "your mine"/"come now" phrases and the gay best friend.......what you were actually left with were some fantastically erotic, sensual and really well written sex scenes, some really interesting and endearing characters, and some great potential for a follow up. I loved Cat, especially when she was being strong minded and feisty. (Although her dog owning skills were questionable at times.....poor Laird got left a lot!!!). I also grew to love William, with his mysterious, sexy ways and his deep, dark secrets, which I'm sure we are going to read more about in the future.As the book progressed the story really held its own, I loved the chemistry between William and Cat and I loved their passionate exchanges. I also loved some of the secondary characters in the book particularly Beckett, and I cant wait to read where his love life may lead in the future.Overall I give this book 3.5 shiny stars. It was a fun, enjoyable read, with a heavy sprinkling of hot, erotic fiction and I would definitely be interested in reading the follow up.**ARC, kindly provided by NetGallery in exchange for an honest review **

    Review****Arc received from Netgalley for my honest review*****Catherine Kelly is a widow. She has run away from her home town that holds too many bittersweet memories to Chicago, to start afresh. Her job as a successful photographer brings her in contact, literally smack bag contact, with William Lambourne a billionaire ladies man with stormy eyes and determination. That determination finds itself focused solely on Catherine. William is set on putting some flavour back into Catherine's life, and with his dominant ways he awakens a hunger in Catherine she has never felt before. But can she get over her guilt and feelings of betrayal to her husband?I enjoyed this tasty romance of Cat and William. William is your standard, sexy, dominant with his abrupt words and pushy, alpha ways. To begin with, I couldn't get a handle on him, I didn't feel the sexy connection I usually do with all of my lovable billionaires. He seemed too overdone, I didn't actually start to like him until I saw him floundering. That's right, the usual ploys this man was used to doing to keep his ladies happy didn't work and I for one was cheering. I loved seeing him struggle, he seemed so much more likable and was forced to be himself. Cat was a bit more frustrating. I did feel for the poor woman and her guilt. But her indecisiveness and neurotic inner monologue got me down after a while.I enjoyed the little background information we got of both characters, but understand we will be getting more of Williams dark and mysterious past in the next installment. I am intrigued as to what has happened. As you can tell from the title and blurb you know that food and seduction play a major role in this book and I have read books in which I loved this combo, unfortunately not so much in this book. It felt over done, everything was, " I want to taste you", " I can still taste you" I love your taste" and after a while it just became to much.A Taste of You, was a good start to a series and although I had certain issues I did enjoy it in the end. Will be interested to see where it goes from here.

    I have to be honest. A lot of this felt like a rehash of all the other "controlling, damaged billionaire meets regular girl and goes gaga for the first time in his life" books. I liked the foodie twist, not because I've never seen it before, but because it was done, in my opinion, really well. It was sexy, without overwhelming the story. William was hot, there is no doubt. He knows he wants Catherine from the moment he mets her, and goes all out to woo her. I loved Catherine in the beginning of the book. William pulls out some gifts that show he knows more than he should about her, and for once a heroine actually seems at least mildly alarmed by that kind of behavior. We learn about why she has run away to Chicago, and it broke my heart. Nothing in the book touched me like the story of her past. However, we quickly went down what seems to be the path of every one of these books. The endless cycle of the heroine learning something, or at least thinking they learn something, pushing the hero away, telling him they don't want to be with them, only to end up back together soon after. Honestly, I'm so, so tired of this. The first few times, it made sense, and it felt like a rational reaction (mostly). But by the end, Catherine was getting upset about things that just did not seem like that big a deal. I didn't feel like we actually got to know William in any real sense until the last twenty percent of the book. I was glad to get a glimpse of the real guy behind the sexy exterior. Of course, this lead me to wonder how Catherine could be so attached to him when she didn't really know him at all. The book ends on a cliffhanger, though not one that puts their relationship in question. While I'm interested in the tidbit that was thrown out in the last sentence of the book, I'm not sure if its made me curious enough to read the next installment. I don't feel invested in William and Catherine as a couple. I think I'm most interested in seeing Catherine's past get some resolution, which might be enough to suck me into a second book.ARC was provided by Premier Digital Publishing via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

    Catherine has moved to Chicago to leave her old life behind. She takes a job as a food photographer. Her job, to make food look good. With the help of her best friend, who stages the food for the pictures, she has made a new career. She lands a big new account and goes to the restaurant to get the lay of the land and literally stumbles into William. [image error]The chemistry is palpable from the very first touch. Catherine knows she could fall for this guy and she also knows she is NOT looking for a relationship. William is a perpetual bachelor. He chooses his dates with great care. Being a billionaire, he has to. William is fun and exciting sometimes, and brooding and mysterious at other times. [image error]William owns many restaurants but his real talent is in the kitchen..and the bedroom. Catherine is torn. Her mind is saying run, but she can not deny her body's response to William. William didn't reveal much in this book. We don't know much about his past. I want to know what makes him tick. We learn about Catherine's past and it was tragic. I really felt for her. She wants to start over, but her past still haunts her. I love a good billionaire boyfriend story. This one was fresh and felt new. It didn't just copy the same mold as all of the other books in the sub-genre, yes, I think there are enough books for it to be a sub-genre. This book had some HOT, HOT, HOT, scenes. Who knew food could be so erotic. I will never look at chocolate and champagne the same again. It was a stellar start to what I predict will be an amazing series.4 Food Loving Romantic Stars.**ARC given by NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.**

    4 Wickedly Mouthwatering StarsDeliciously sexy! A scotching hot read that will have you thinking about food in a new light and burning dinner at the same time. You will never look at a kitchen the same way ever again!A Taste of You is a refreshingly different take on sex with a hot billionaire. It was like jumping in the car dropping the top, turning up the radio, and driving around with the windows down in the middle of winter. I really enjoyed every. single. minute. of it! I didn’t want to put it down while at the same time I didn’t want it to end. I’m disappointed that I’m finished, but ecstatic that this is part of a series where we’ll get more (hopefully much much more) of William and Cat.I wasn’t sure what I expected when I opened the first page…… well, I know what I wanted but wasn’t sure what I would get considering this is the first book under the Sorcha Grace nom de plume. I wanted a story that would suck me in with a somewhat controlling hero, steamy sex, AND a GREAT story that hasn’t been done before. Sorcha Grace more than delivered. She has served up one wickedly tasty story! I am more than glad I decided to give A Taste of You a chance. William is the sexy gorgeous billionaire with stormy eyes that doesn’t date and he certainly doesn’t do LOVE (well, he hasn’t found it yet at least). He has a different woman on his arm every few weeks. And for William, women and “relationships” have a stated expiration date. Catherine (Cat) is the food photographer that ran 2,000 miles away to Chicago to put her past behind her and focus on her career. Cat’s not ready to date again. She doesn’t do one night stands, but claims she’s not relationship material either. She’s content hiding behind her camera. And, her idea of an adventurous night is curling up on her couch in pajamas watching television with a good pint of ice cream. A chance meeting sends sparks flying between the pair when Cat takes a spill on the sidewalk in front William. William disappears just as fast as he appeared when he swooped in to pick Cat up from the sidewalk. Their encounter is so brief it has Cat questioning whether “stormy eyes” is even real. That is until………. the next day when Cat walks into the restaurant where her photo shoot is taking place, and THERE HE IS – none other than stormy eyes himself. From the get-go, William is forward and bold with Cat. He’s a man who knows what he wants and goes after it – HARD. The way he chases her and things he does (not to mention says) to get her had me squirming in my chair and looking over my shoulder to make sure someone wasn’t reading over it.You told the chef you’d do whatever it took to please him … Do you have the same philosophy in bed?”…… “What’s going on?” I finally sputtered. “What’s this about?”…“I should think that would be obvious.” His direct gaze never waivered. “I want you.”…”I want to fuck you. Hard. Long,’ he whispered. “Until you come and come and think you can’t come anymore.”I loved the cat and mouse game. Cat doesn’t intentionally make William chase which is a nice change. She’s still trying to overcome events of her past, but William also gives her cause to be cautious and run. The fact that the heroine was not totally helpless scores major points in my book. There’s nothing more annoying than a whiney female character that plays the woe-is-me-chase-me-feel-sorry-for-me card. Cat is strong and level-headed which means William has finally met his match!“It’s different with you.” He caressed my cheek, calming me. “You’re different. I want to keep feeling the way I feel when we’re together. It’s addictive. I don’t want it to stop.”William is a SERIOUS foodie and gourmet cook! His food love lends itself to some SERIOUSLY hot and steamy sex in and out of the kitchen. Everything about William and Cat’s interactions is erotic and sensual. I really need more William and Cat!!!The writing itself was wonderful, strong, and descriptive. Sorcha Grace has a way with words that can make any object sexy. She creates steamy and hot sexual tension that is palpable. It will have you squirming in your chair and on the edge of your seat. The flow was so smooth it pulled me in right from the beginning and had me flying through this book in no time. I felt like I blinked and it was over. I’m really looking forward to the next book in the series. I haven’t enjoyed a book this much in a long time. If you take nothing away from this book, you will at learn what an AGA is. And thank you to Sorcha for posting a pic of an AGA on her Facebook page. It made it so much easier to imagine the story in my mind knowing what one looks like – it IS a pretty sexy piece of equipment!!!! ARC provided by Premier Digital Publishing via Net Galley

    Hot, Hot, Hot... As in steamy hot... Need to remove my sweater in 32 degree weather hot... Cheeks flushed pink and legs squeeze together and.... Okay, I think you get the picture. This book is downright sexy.A Taste of You boasts that it is "Like Fifty Shades of Grey". It really isn't. I believe that they point the comparison because our leading man is as intense as they come and is rich beyond belief. But it really where the similarities end. A Taste of You had depth. Cat is a widow. A 25 year old widow. She is still grieving her husband and William wants all of her. She is unsure if she will ever be ready to do that.I really didn't feel that William was as intense as Cat saw, but I believe that was her grieving veil blinding her to that front. I couldn't put the book down when Cat was divulging everything about Jace. I really wish we could have read more about what Cat Ryder was like before the accident. It would have been nice to see William's reaction to her and her husbands fame. I was even hoping for William to see pictures of Jace for everything to come full circle. I am not disappointed with how everything came together though. :)Oh momma! Those sex scenes!!! They came out of no where!Food... Sexy? Who knew????? Well... It is. (These were the sexiest kabobs I could find...)Boy, I would not mind making memories like that on my kitchen floor. A nice little thought as you are making your morning coffee, right? ;)I will never look at chocolate croissants the same again... Who knew they could be so sexy.With that, I tried to make my own the night I finished the book. I used the tube of crescents and chocolate chips. Let's just say they weren't quite as sexy, but my husband and I had a good laugh!!!

    Ok first about the rating!Hum I initially gave it a 5*, then I kind of thought hum this was in the spur of the moment, because yeah this was reading Fifty Shades with food, and honestly after a year of reading Fifty Shades I just can’t stand it anymore, and I really understand now that even do that trilogy initiated me on this path, it wasn’t really that good.And now you tell me, but you haven’t changed your rate on Goodreads, yes that’s true but only because I haven’t read it since, and I don’t have the physical time to review something I already read.And now for A Taste Of You ( sorry to the author about the change in rating)!Did I like it, YES! Was it perfect, NO!Cat’s a brave woman, even when she has those moments of doubt. And well it wasn’t easy dealing with William, but it was so fun for me to read. She analyses things to the pain of a needle just like Anastacia did, which was obnoxious sometimes, but with her I could deal with.William is the typical rich, powerful and broken alpha male. He was so damn sexy with that food, boy I think I gained a few pounds just imagining those scenes. It was smexy, and drool worthy!“I want to fuck you. Hard. Long,” he whispered. “Until you come and come and think you can’t come anymore.” All the scenes with the food, were erotic and so damn yummy! That dinner in his house :O oh boy I need a night like that “My whole body heated up from just one look, so his words had ignited an inferno. When he’d touched me, I went absolutely liquid.”Of course both of them have troubled pasts, yes William more than Cat. And yes in a typical alpha complicated male, he hides the truth, and does some things that with me, would earn him a slap in the face or a kick in the ass But it was fun to see, the tension and drama evolve.And yes, it does end with a cliffhanger, which I just loved I needed a little something to lead me to the second book! It was worth the ride, but yeah it has many Fifty Shades manners.The good thing about it, well at least Sorcha knows how to write…ARC was provided by Premier Digital Publishing via NetGalley in exchange for an honest reviewYou can check other reviews:http://sbooklover.wordpress.com/

    3.5 to 4* starI'm at two minds on this first book, some parts were really great other parts were just filled with unnecessary information. Catherine Kelly moves to Chicago to start out afresh, as a food photographer, leaving her painful past buried and behind her. On her first shoot she meets the wealthy bachelor William Lambourne. There is instant chemistry and sizzling electricity between them and unfortunately, for me, this was dampened down by too much information on what Catherine sees and feels for William. William also has a tragic past, but perhaps as this is book one, we don't get to feel his anguish, therefore left feeling a bit disconnected. There were some great lines from this hot alpha male, but would have loved to have had a lot more tantalising banter between the two. The hot erotic scenes between them where great, especially so around 80% in to the book and loved the combination use of food with the hot scenes!First book I have read by this author and this is the first part of a trilogy! So be aware it does end on a cliffy and I am still intrigued enough in wanting t,o find out what happens next!!!

    OMG OMG OMG!!! This book BLEW my socks off...and my shirt... and my pants...There really aren't enough words in the English language to describe how unbelievably sexy this book was.Please allow me to introduce you to William Maddox Lambourne and Catherine "Cat" Kelly. They are both gorgeous in their own right but William...Oh EM GEE!"That face-those eyes. He had dark brown hair, wavy and thick and tousled. It was sexy hair. The kind of hair a man sports after he's been rolling around in bed."I am picturing Chris Pine here, mostly for his strikingly sexy blue grey eyes MEOWCat was smokin hot as well!Cat is a photographer that is going through a tough time in her life after to loss of her first husband Jace.William is a billionaire food aficionado and is obsessed with getting Cat into his bed...and into his heart.I have heard people say that this book is like 50 Shades of Grey but it is OH SO MUCH MORE! There is a lot of character development and it really makes William and Cat more relatable. I loved the relationship between Cat and her best friend Beckett...reminded me of my friendship with my best guy friend.The scene with Cat, William and the pain au chocolat will go down in infamy as the number one fantasy that will keep recurring in my dreams...And I shall never look at a kitchen floor the same way again!There are so many parts of this story I loved, EVEN the cliffhanger ending (I cannot wait for the next book in the series!)Some of my favs:"What kind of burglar turned on the lights and cooked dinner? Dropping my bags at the door, I walked and arrowed for the kitchen. I stepped inside and halted because he was there.""'That's the last time you'll open your mouth to another man', he said, his voice husky and seductive. I couldn't stop the tremor of pleasure that raced through me at his sey tone. 'From now on, I'm the only man that feeds you.' My skin where his breath touched it fired in response, and I squirmed in my seat. His closeness and his voice turned me on, but I didn't appreciate his warning. Who the hell did he think he was? Did other women tolerate this sort of behavior?""I lifted the gift from the box and stood, allowing the floor-length silk dress to cascade to the floor. "Oh, Beckett." I sighed. No one had ever given me surprise gifts, and no one had ever given me something like this""'Every girl, and some guys, I know would love to be in your shoes. Youre Julia-fucking-Roberts in Pretty Woman. But prettier, of course. You are William Maddox Lambourne's girlfriend.' Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman. The comparison resonated. And the real question remained-was I the princess or the whore?"This book was seriously sexy, deliciously hot and over-the-top AH-MAZING!Highly recommended for my fans of erotic romance! 5 out out 5 stars!!!

    Review featured on www.books-n-kisses.comSo I picked this book because it said if you liked Fifty Shades of Grey you will like this book. And I did like that book so I thought I would try this one. Then as I started to read it I thought “great another secretive billionaire who finds a lowly brunette and he has never felt this way with anyone else.” And while that is all true this story is a bit different.William just may be my dream guy. Yes he is rich and good looking but he is protective, possessive and the type of lover I enjoy. Cat is interesting too. She is smart and a fighter and someone I would like to be friends with. I liked that Cat’s best friend (a male) is not pushed aside by William. While he is a jealous type it does not seem to apply to her best friend.This story is part one of the story and it leaves off with a cliffhanger. There were some parts that I was just “ok” with but mostly I enjoyed the story. BTW it has nothing to do with BDSM as Shades does. William likes control but he is not into BDSM. The sex scenes are written well even though there are a bunch of them. If you enjoy reading erotica romance then pick up this book and then hold your breath until part 2 comes out.Disclaimer:I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

    **Copy kindly provided by the author via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review**I greatly enjoyed this book, the characters, their relationship, and all action that the kitchens saw. Sorcha Grace does an amazing job creating a vivid picture in your mind of exactly what's going on without over explaining and making it wordy. All of the characters are super relatable and pretty realistic. Love Beckett!!! Totally want more Beckett!!! And well of course there could never be enough William. If Gabriel Emerson, Christian Grey, and Gideon Cross all had a love child he would be William Lambourne. William is a rich, generous, caring, loves to cook and feed his lady, smart, and sexy diverse business man; whom has a difficult time opening up, and has had a great deal of tragedy in his past.I loved every page of this book, except for the abrupt ending. For a second I thought perhaps my kindle had frozen, or that I had an incomplete ebook. So I went to Goodreads and realized that there will be a sequel, which made me super excited, but I wish there had been at least a "To be Continued..." or something. Despite the abrupt ending I loved this book and would recommend it to my book loving friends.

    Wow! Another book with a wounded/naive/inexperienced woman and a brutish, "doesn't take no for an answe"r male (probably with some kind of past trauma).I'm so sick of these types of books.I was really excited about the whole "sexy food thing" the synopsis of this book promised but I can't get past the domineering, "I don't care about your feelings because I know what you want better than you do" male character and the wimpy, doormat female character who melts into a puddle of dimwitted goo every time she comes near him.Honestly, it's like Fifty Shades of Grey, if Christian had had a food fetish.Shallow story line, irredeemable characters and less that stellar writing.Stopped reading at Chapter 12. Got it on NetGalleyJust my opinion, of course.

    3.75 stars this was a decent read. very very steamy.and warning this ends in a cliffhanger. I do think it is worth reading. I can't wait for the next book to come out.The cliffhanger has nothing to do with their relationship. It has do with his dead family...or are they really dead? I loved how possessive he is and how strong willed she is.I would have given this 4 stars if it hadn't ended in a cliffhanger I can't stand them! Usually I wait to read a book if it does until all the books are out. But I recieved an ARC so I had NO idea. Happy reading folks

    Hot sex and food.....dominant male independent female trying to start over. This book is a little cliche at this point how many freaking billionaires are there in the world not many. I don't know there are just different ideas that would have done the job just fine. Fifty Shades like kind of over it. Good book though

    A Taste of You by Sorcha GraceFirst in the Epicurean trilogy2.5 stars (maybe)Catherine Kelly has changed her last night and left her home in California to start over in Chicago. She’s starting over as a food photographer with the help of her trusty best friend Beckett. When Cat takes on a job that unexpectedly leads her to meeting a gorgeous man she nicknames “Stormy Eyes”. William Lambourne is one of the world’s wealthiest man and the most eligible bachelor in Chicago. He takes pleasure in food and women. As Cat’s past haunts her, she uncovers deep secrets of William’s own past that could tear them apart. Apparently this is going to be a trilogy. I honestly don’t see the point in this, but Ms. Grace decided to throw us a plot line towards the end. This is what I consider to be my first official delve into erotica. There’s hardly any plot and what little plot there is isn’t really developed until the end of the novel. I’m not really sure if I liked it or not. There were a few things that bothered me about A Taste of You, but hardly anything happened for me to make an opinion. I guess I could make an opinion on the sex. I’ll do that towards the end.The main female character is Catherine or Cat. I personally didn’t really like her, but she had redeeming moments. She realizes that something isn’t all right with William. I applaud her for this. Too bad she didn’t follow up on her intuition and ran away.Why didn’t she run? Well, her best friend has a few lovely words to say about Cat’s “crazy” suspicions. Here’s Cat’s suspicion of William “It feels like an invasion of privacy. I didn’t even know this guy a few days ago. He was a stormy-eyed stranger I met on the street. And now, he’s buying me shoes and jewelry?”Beckett’s wise words of wisdom “Cat don’t over-think it,” Beckett warned. “I can hear you over-thinking it.” I’ll get back to Beckett later. Other things about Cat that annoyed me:She describes William’s stormy-eyes way too much. In almost every single passage his eyes were referenced. She hardly eats at all. There is nothing wrong with being a size six, but for her unless she’s a size nonexistent she’s not happy. It does improve a little, but it’s still so annoying. She has no friends besides Beckett and some old people in her building. Why can’t she have more friends in Chicago? I don’t get it.Kick-Butt Heroine Scale: 3The main male character is William. William is like Christian Grey, but he likes food. A lot. So much so that he uses food in sex. At least Cat’s finally eating right? I don’t like how possessive he is or cold or how he has no personality. He acts like Cat is his and that no man has any right to so much as even look at her. He is always extremely all over the place in emotions. One minute he’s flirting (if you could even call it flirting) and the next he is distant and cranky. I don’t have time for people like that in real life or in books. We know absolutely nothing about William other than he’s hot, rich, his family died in a crash (suspected), he cooks, and has lots of sex. Other than that we don’t know much about him and he is like a plank. He’s there but not really there. I personally would’ve liked a little something called character development, but it is erotica so I’m not expecting much.Swoon Worthy Scale: 2.75The Villain- Like I said it is erotica, so a villain is hardly ever present. There was no villain.Villain Scale: 0Beckett is a complete and total idiot. He gives terrible advice and because of this I don’t like him. He had potential, but he was constantly egging Cat on to be in a relationship with someone that could be a killer or psychopath. I don’t get it. Why would you encourage someone to be in a relationship with a guy who knows where she lives and they’ve only met a few days ago?Character Scale: 3So the sex… is I guess hot. It’s over the top sometimes, but it was entertaining. After a while it became kind of boring because it seemed to be trying too hard (hehe get it?). I’m not sure if I’ll read the sequel. Maybe I will, but unless I’m extremely bored or just happen to stumble upon it, I think I’ll pass. It’s not something I’m going to hunt down and personally request at the library or from a book store.Cover Thoughts: The cover is mediocre and not really attention grabbing. It fits the book, but I don’t like the cover very much.Thank you, Netgalley and Premier Digital Publishing for a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    This review was also posted at http://fabfunandtantalizingreads.com.Holy shiz. Taste of You kept me in a perpetual haze of need. It was so hot. The food, the sex, the food and sex together.... Holy hot damn, I was ready to combust time and time again. I will never be able to look at a fig, pain au chocolat or grapes the same ever again. *fanning self in remembrance*Firstly, if you love the likes of Christian, Gideon, Ethan or Damon - you are going to LOVE William (aka Stormy Eyes). He's insatiable, got money and that closed off vibe hangs from him like his suit. He sports the take charge, caring nature, and has skills (and not just the culinary type!). My.oh.my. *multiple orgasms anyone?* There's a lot of tasting going on.Taste of You introduces us to Cat, lingerie collector, and food photographer specializing in making food sexy. And does she ever! She has a past that has left her sad, lonely, scarred and unwilling to enter another relationship. Hell, even going on a date is way out of her comfort zone. One fateful night, she runs into William, THE hottest man ever, and drops her bundle literally before she knows it, he's vanished and she didn't even learn his name. Their brief meeting is enough to get her blood rushing and wondering where she put her b.o.b when she moved, and has him deciding that she was going to be his."I want to fuck you. Hard. Long, until you come and come and think you can't come anymore.""We are going to fuck in more ways than you can imagine. And I'm going to show you pleasure you didn't know existed."From their first kiss, in the industrial freezer, I was on fire. I wanted to jump in his limo and have my way with him. The scene in the lingerie store kept my blood hot, and his surprise with coffee and croissants was HOLY SHIT TAKE ME RIGHT NOW in the kitchen on the floor hot. This steamy book made kept me horny, (and hungry!) for the duration. I couldn't put it down.It wasn't all just sex and food though. Both Cat and William had major emotional issues from their pasts that affected the way they related to each other and their ability to be rational at times. Whether it was his mercurial mood shifts, or her too-ing and fro-ing & difficulty letting go and moving on, it was a wonderful story to read. The characters were well developed & grew throughout the story and vital pieces of information were revealed in just the right places. Beckett was a great, loyal and fun friend and was a wonderful addition to the story."Is it strange," I asked him, "to have everything you want? You buy me gifts all the time, but what am I supposed to get you for Valentines Day or for your birthday or Christmas? You have everything." "Not quite everything. All I want is you."The settings, cooking & food, photography, and clothing detail were the perfect balance to the sexy times. I could imagine the scenes as if I were looking at a picture rather than reading words. I absolutely loved this book, and I need the next instalment right now. Well done Sorcha.Thankyou to Netgalley and Premier Digital Publishing for the opportunity to read Taste of You. That fact has not affected my rating, nor my opinion on the story or writing. Pinky promise!

    ** 2.5 stars ** Okay. I'm just going to be up-front and say this is a tough review for me, mostly because I feel a bit ambivalent about A Taste of You. I was interested in the story, yet I didn't find anything new and exciting in it. I liked the characters, yet I wanted to shake them. I enjoyed the book, yet felt annoyed by some aspects of it, too. A Taste of You is about a lonely, reserved woman and the cultured, in-control billionaire who steals her heart. It's a nice escape for those who love their romance to be lavish and to read like a fantasy. Catherine meets William, and there is an immediate attraction between them. She's sure he doesn't really want her. Why would he when he can have any woman in the world? But want her he does, and William is determined to have Catherine.The story has a lot of back-and-forth. Catherine wants William, but decides she's not ready for a serious relationship. She agrees to see him, but spends the entire time doubting that decision and determined to end it. But then he shows up on her doorstep, or actually talks the neighbor into letting him into the apartment, and all is well again. Catherine decides that William could never want to be really be with her, but he tells her that she's the only woman he has ever felt this way about and to please, please stay. I never formed a strong connection to the characters. They've both experienced tremendous loss, and for that I sympathize. I think for Catherine, it was the constant back-and-forth in her decision making. Now I'm not going to say that it's not realistic, because it probably is for some people, but it just simply grated on me because I could see her mind swinging like a pendulum. And William...yeah, he was sexy and smooth and all, but so frickin' moody. He wasn't the worst cranky, controlling billionaire I've read, not by a long shot, but man was he bossy. A Taste of You had some really steamy, sexy scenes. YAY! There's even a bit of #foodporn going on! I love a nice Alpha who knows what he's doing and knows how to please his lady. And once Catherine and William really get going, the sex is plentiful. But...am I the only woman thinks it's kind of hilarious in all of these books when a man can make a woman climax on demand? "Come. Now." Does that work on anyone? Am I alone here? Other than that, I really liked the smexy.A Taste of You is a story with a very popular trope that many readers will love. Maybe I would have loved this if I had read it before other similar books. But at the end, there isn't a lot to make this story stand out for me. However, the story did end on a very surprising note. One that makes me think that I have to continue the series, simply to find out what happens next.

    3.5-3.75 stars - I was provided an ARC of this book for an honest review.I have some mixed feelings about this book. Initially I had a hard time connecting with the characters. I probably didn't connect with them til 75% or more through the book, however, the bedroom and kitchen (yes, kitchen) scenes were pretty loveable from the first time to the last time!! ;) Cat exhausted me sometimes. I think there should have been more of a role from her BFF Beckett actually. Her story is sad and different, which I liked. I did feel for her. William, the only connection I had with him was during the steamy bedroom/kitchen scenes. But yes, toward the end I was completely invested in him, and their relationship... we got to learn more about William finally. Then WTF... it ended. Cliffhanger. Didn't know that was going to happen. Ok, I knew it was a series, however, I thought William and Cat's story would come to a conclusion in this book. Whatever, I'm glad it's not concluded because really there's so much more to know about William and to see how their relationship progresses. I don't like cliffangers, although, this was NOT a relationship cliffhanger... it was a family cliffhanger. That I can handle!!! I still was trying to swipe my iphone for the next page, even though the book showed 100% done and it just would not go to more pages, I hate that!!!! :) I will read the next book for sure. I'm now very interested in where their story goes and learning more about William.

    Loved the way the writer takes the story without rush the time. The pace is perfect, giving the couple time to know each other.The plot is romantic and there are a lot of hot scenes.Positives points: it was not necessary to create a past as dark for the hero to be mysterious as he is. It doens't take a long time to the heroine finds out what makes him so seriously.But in spite of what happened to him, he actually has a soft side.Negative point: I would not say that is exactly negative, but I think William spoke a little too much while having sex (LOL). As Elvis would say: "a little less conversation, a little more action, please."Book more than approved to indicate to my friends.If I want to read sequels? Of course!! I loved the way the book ended. I can not wait to read the next!All review in:http://aborboletaquele.blogspot.com.b...
