Kaitlyn Hughes was living her dream. After attending culinary school in Paris, she now lives there and works under one of the best chefs in the business. Life is perfect. When her parents ask her to come home for the holidays, she decides to take a much-deserved vacation.
Five years away does something to you. It messes with your memory and makes you believe that you don’t miss the things that you do. You don’t realize it until its too late.
When Kaitlyn unexpectedly runs into Eli Baker, the one she left behind, all bets are off. Does absence really make the heart grow fonder? How much are you willing to give up for true love?
***This can be read as a standalone.***
I received this book from the author for an honest review.
I totally fell in love with Eli in Jackson’s book. When Heather said Eli was getting a novella, I was so excited. I mean we all love a bad boy, but a broken bad boy makes all the women’s hearts swoon. Eli always acted like he wasn’t a fan of the whole “love” thing but the way he helped Jackson through the loss of his wife and everything after spoke differently.
It turns out Eli was, in fact, a one-woman kinda guy who loves Kait with everything he has. He has dreams, hopes and aspirations that will include her by his side….or so he THOUGHT.
Kait loves Eli but the chance to go to Paris to learn to cook turns out to be bigger then her love for the boy she gave her heart too. When she leaves and never returns, she destroyed our Eli.
I enjoyed the short look into the “what happened” between these two. The dynamic and the chemistry were a great read for me and I definitely look forward to the longer novel in the future because this novella is just the beginning for out couple. It’s a bit of a teaser after reading the cooking scene!!! Read it and you will understand what I mean.
