Gage pulled her closer. “I’m waiting.”
She met his eyes. “For what?”
“Did I pass or fail?”
Realization dawned for Tonya. He was asking her to grade his cooking. “I give you a B for dinner and a C for the cocktails.”
Gage stared at her as if she had taken leave of her senses. “You’re kidding!”
“No I’m not. If I gave you an A, then there’s no room for improvement. And the C is for trying to get me tanked. I took a sip of yours when you weren’t looking and it wasn’t as strong as the one you made for me.”
“That’s because I put less rum in mine. After all I was the designated driver.”
Her mouth formed a perfect O. “If that’s the case then I’ll give you an A for the Mai Tai.”
Bestselling author Rochelle Alers welcomes readers back to romantic New Orleans in her warm and sexy series about four very different women embarking on a new adventure . . .
Sometimes you go in search of a new beginning. Other times, it finds you. Tonya Martin enjoys her job as a professional chef for a Wall Street bank, her East Harlem walk-up, and the freedom to live and love by her own rules—right up until the day she finds herself suddenly downsized. But a spontaneous trip to New Orleans opens up a new opportunity. With time on her hands and her daughter soon graduating college, Tonya has the chance to reach for her own long-cherished dream—opening a restaurant on her friend Hannah’s beautiful Garden District estate.
While Hannah and her new husband work on transforming the DuPont House into a luxury
inn, Tonya explores local cuisine, taking an apprentice role at famed restaurant Chez Toussaints. Gage Toussaint’s mix of Creole, Cajun, and African ancestry is deeply attractive, and the sexy chef clearly wants their friendship to become much more. Drawn to him yet hesitant given their previous unhappy marriages, Tonya wonders if it’s too late to leap into love again. Could Gage be just the ingredient she needs to make this delicious new life complete?

The Grown & Sexy
(Friday, March 24, 2017)
Reviewer: J. B. Williams
I Loved This Book. Very Grown and Very Sexy. St. John was the Perfect Hero. Smart Handsome and His Own Money. Knows how to Handle a Lady who was also very smart , and Sexy. Feeling right at home in NawLeans with a dash of NY City, Great history in the backdrop and historical flow made this perfect for an Old school setting. Secondary characters made it even more interesting. Just enough drama, with the Heroine being strong but not over
Powering. Page Turning Great Read from Ms. Alers!. 5 Star ⭐️ Rated
