Farm-girl-turned-TV-producer Em Harris is in way over her head. Trying to bag chef Jacob Hill for her new culinary show is one thing. Staying at the sex-themed hotel Hush, where his restaurant is located, is quite another. Her goal there is to convince Jacob, known for looking and cooking like a dream, to sign a contract. But after a few days of being enveloped in Hush’s sensual atmosphere, the only thing on Em’s mind is discovering if Jacob tastes as delicious as he appears….
There is nothing like a good Harlequin to read for a quick romance fix!  This time, I chose to read a Blaze series book.  This book had so much romance and steamy sex, my fingers were blazing turning the pages! Plus, look at the abs on that cover model!
The author did a wonderful job of setting the two main characters up for romance! After meeting in an elevator and sharing a steamy kiss, the two obviously can’t wait to meet each other again around the Hush hotel.  The Hush hotel is centered around letting couples explore their sexual side while in the privacy of a hotel.  Em was a strong and hopeless romantic at heart. She falls in love with Jacob very quickly and gets her hopes up that he feels the same way. Jacob has never had a serious relationship and is afraid to commit to just one woman. 
The characters were a delight and they clicked almost instantly. The only problem I had was with the side characters.  I know that side characters are suppose to fill in spots in the story, but I like to get some sort of feeling for them as well.  In this book, the stories for the side characters were extremely rushed and solved too quickly. A couple more chapters of the side characters would have made it more believable.
Overall a great read from the Harlequin books.  

Very Good! I would recommend this book!
