Product Description

Product Description

Emily Kate Boudreaux runs a restaurant located on a bayou in Texas, because it's what her family expects of her. She'd rather pursue her living as an artist. Then sexy chef Connor Rikeland walks into her life and turns it upside down. Soon, Emily Kate's restaurant is a roaring success, she has time to paint to her heart's content, there's a hunky guy warming her bed, and she's having visions of happily ever after.

Connor Rikeland is used to women throwing themselves at him, and he's been known to use relationships as a bargaining chip in his climb up the ladder. He wants a culinary career in the spotlight - and Cajun cooking isn't his ticket to fame even if Emily Kate is unlike anyone he's ever met.

Not to mention Connor has a few secrets that have put him on the wrong side of her brother's FBI case. When the pieces of just why Connor is hanging out in a backwoods town begin to surface, Emily Kate must decide what's real, what's a lie, and what's worth risking her heart over. Because deception or not, life with Connor is delicious.

Title: Delicious Deception
Series: Tough Love
Designation: Book Three, Standalone Novel, NO Cliffhanger
Author: Tami Lund
Genre: Contemporary Romance/Comedy/Suspense
Heat Level: Smokin' Hot
OH MY GLORY !!! Tami Lund has gone and done it again! And just what has she done, you ask? Why, she has created absolute, utter perfection, of course! Delicious Deception is Lund's third riveting offering in her Tough Love Series. It may be the third release but it definitely wins first place in my heart. It takes the blue ribbon by a landslide and is most assuredly a grand prize winner for her readers! I began reading Tami Lund's work last year when I accidentally stumbled upon Naked Truth, the first book of her Tough Love Series and I've been an avid fan ever since. There are some people that seem to be born with a natural innate ability for storytelling and Tami Lund has been blessed many times over with this remarkable gift. So, after reading the sinfully sexy first two books in her Tough Love Series, Naked Truth and Undercover Heat, I thought I would never be able to say this, but Delicious Deception is even more incredible than the first and second novels of the series and that, folks, is not an impression; it's a simple statement of fact! I haven't laughed this much while reading a contemporary romance in a long time! The hero and heroine of this story, Connor Rikeland and Emily Kate Boudreaux are a hot as haydees bonfire just itching to combust and not only have the perfect chemistry but are also perfectly hilarious - as I said - utter perfection! And Emily Kate's wickedly funny brother, FBI agent Jack Boudreaux, is back in action after a starring performance in Naked Truth. I started laughing on page two and uncontrollably snorted, snickered, giggled, chuckled, howled and uproariously belly-laughed through the entire book with a few gasps, oh my gods, heartfelt tears and sobbing thrown in for good measure. Lund has become one of my favorite authors and I am a fan for life!!! The story is exciting, well developed, well executed, suspenseful, enchanting, humorous, cute, sweet, heartwarming, heartbreaking, romantic, sensual and seductive. The dialogue is smart, snappy, funny, exceptionally well written and flows effortlessly. Whew! That's a mouthful but these are only a few of the words that come to mind after reading this novel. But my favorite element of this story is the characters because this is very much a character driven tale. They are complex, well developed, strong, clever, captivating, mischievous, engaging, endearing, relatable, sexy as sin and more often than not, laugh out loud funny. Va..Va..Voom! Lund's characters seem to always be the very heart and soul of her stories. Lund exhibits her amazing skill and unique style by expertly combining these elements into an alluring and delightfully entertaining modern romance/comedy/crime drama filled to the brim with spine-tingling danger, hold-your-breath drama, oh-my-goodness suspense, exciting adventure, instant attraction, smoldering steamy passion, belly-laugh mischief and good old fashion love, southern style. I loved it! So dreamy! Sigh..... If you love a seductive contemporary romance seasoned throughout with sexy, witty banter, peppered with a liberal measure of fun-filled, rollicking humor and generously flavored with strong, intelligent characters with a quick wit and a little sass, then you will surely enjoy Delicious Deception! And Tami Lund - we want Connor's recipe for his mouth-watering sweet potato/pecan muffins!

Devilishly handsome chef Connor Rikeland has always been able to flash his trademark crooked smile and get just about anything and any woman he's ever wanted - everything except his dream job, the coveted executive chef position at the world renowned, award-winning Oliver's Restaurant in Detroit. So, after working his butt off and groveling for ten years, he walks out and vows never to return! Even trying to sleep his way to the top didn't work! Huh? Oh my goodness! Unfortunately that turn of events has resulted in his now predicament of running for his life. Yep, he's definitely in trouble with no wallet, no money, no identification and no way to get back home to Detroit. What's a guy to do? Why, steal a boat and con his way into a job at the small-time, unknown, bayou-backwater Louisiana Kitchen in Uncertain, Texas working as the new executive chef. What? How the heck did he manage that?

Southern belle Emily Kate Boudreaux has always dreamed of becoming a successful and recognized artist so how in the world did she end up being the owner/operator and now current chef of the Louisiana Kitchen in Uncertain, Texas??? Her papaw of course. He up and inconveniently died and left the entire restaurant to her - just her! What the heck? This is so not her dream! And her situation looks totally hopeless until the roguishly handsome and very charming Connor Rikeland comes to the rescue. He just shows up on her doorstep with no money or identification and maneuvers his way into not only her kitchen but also her home, her bed and her heart in less than twenty four hours! Oh my! But not if her brother, FBI agent Jack Boudreaux, has anything to say about it! He recognizes Connor for what he truly his - a womanizer who can't be trusted. He ought to know, after all, he used to be one himself. So Jack wants Connor gone and Emily Kate wants Connor to stay but Connor wants to return to Detroit and become an executive chef or maybe stay with Emily Kate or heck - Connor doesn't even know what he wants anymore other than to hide from the bad guys and somehow keep the beautiful Emily Kate and himself alive. Oh my goodness! So whose dream comes true??? I guess you'll just have to read the book but I will say this....Handsome, charismatic chef with a seductive crooked smile who melts chocolate and ladies' hearts and has a killer recipe for pecan crusted trout and sweet potato/pecan muffins-check! (What's sexier than a handsome man that can cook, right?!?!) Beautiful restaurant owner/operator who dreams of becoming an artist but falls hard for her roguishly sexy head chef who seems to have a lot of secrets-check! Overprotective brother who just happens to be an FBI agent working on the case that involves his sister's new love interest-check! Secrets, lies, danger, drama, suspense, murder, a car bomb and a deadly criminal casino manager who is determined to eliminate all witnesses to his crimes-oh yeah! Heated attraction, fiery passion, steamy romance and some sexy hilarious banter-you bet! That and a whole lot more! Devilishly cute, seriously sweet, fabulously funny, completely captivating, sinfully sexy and delightfully entertaining!!! Hands down, one of the best books I've read this year! Fabulous entertainment and an awesome read!

HASH(0x9da9aa50) out of 5 stars The perfect recipe for a sexy, suspenseful read! Aug. 3 2015
By tats1824 - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
So, when you're in the mood for a tasty little morsel, pick up Delicious Deception by Tami Lund. Even though this is the 3rd in the series, it's the first I've read. It can definitely be read as a stand-alone, although I plan on going back and reading the rest of the series. Ms. Lund has nailed the perfect recipe for a suspenseful, yet sexy romance read. And I found myself with a hankering for sweet potato pecan muffins when I finished!

I received an ARC of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Format: Kindle Edition
I received this book as an ARC for an honest review. This book can be read as a stand alone, you do not need to read the first two to understand all of the players in this book.

In this book we meet Emily Kate and Connor. In the beginning of this book we find Connor running from someone in a casino. We don't know why but as the story unfolds you will. While on this run Connor realizes he is getting hungry and stops at this bayou restaurant, which will change his life in ways he never knew.

Emily Kate is an artist that inherited a restaurant from her grandfather when he passed. All she really wants to do is paint but that is not in the cards as long as she is doing almost everything in the restaurant. When her part of the story opens we find that her head chef is in the process of leaving he during the dinner rush to run off and marry his long time girlfriend. Part of Emily Kate hopes this means the restaurant will close for good so she has a good reason to get back to her painting but as luck would have it this is the exact moment Connor shows up and tells her he can be her new head chef.

This book has many twists and turns you aren't sure what Connor is hiding or what he was running from at the casino. This book will have you hooked from the first word to the very end. This is an absolute must read.

Connor Rikeland was having a difficult time landing his dream job, so when the opportunity knocked on his door he decided to go to Louisiana and apply for an executive chef position but things turned out bad for him so he has to do a quick getaway and he ended up in a bayou in Texas where he will find Emily Kate Boudreaux.

Emily Kate Boudreaux took over her family's restaurant and had to put her dream to a side since her family didn't think that was a real job, however when Connor Rikeland lands on her restaurant at the right time things will heat up for the two of them, however Connor's secrets will catch up to him and it will put them in danger.

How will Emily Kate and Connor's story will end?

This is one crazy story, hint of thriller, suspense, hot monkey sex, love, respect are the right elements for this amazing book.

Being my first book that I had the pleasure reading from Tami Land, I can tell you I became a fan the minute I started reading this book.

I recommend this book, you will love it and will become a fan of Tami Lund if you are not one yet.

HASH(0x9e2fc330) out of 5 stars Delicious Deception, definitely! Aug. 30 2015
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Delicious was an excellent adjective for this book. The story starts with Connor running from some thugs whose goal is to make sure he ends up dead. It isn't clear what the reason is except that he saw or was involved somehow with something at a casino in Louisiana. He is on his way out of the casino when he is accosted by a pickpocket which he doesn't realize until he is in his vehicle heading out of town. He makes it to a marina and decides to get on a boat to get away. He has a short conversation with a guy, who is on a boat, about the guy's girlfriend who is leaving him right as Connor walks up. Connor saw the interaction and gives the guy his opinion. The guy jumps off his boat and goes after the woman so Connor takes advantage of the situation and commandeers the guy's boat. He has no idea where he's going and ends up at a place called Uncertain, Texas. That made me laugh. It sums up his whole life at the moment. Did I mention that Connor is a chef and the reason why he was at the casino was to interview for a position as head chef? Well it turns out that the main restaurant in Uncertain is the Louisiana Kitchen, and you guessed it, they just lost their head chef. How convenient! The restaurant is owned by a somewhat naive young woman who Connor talks into taking him on as a replacement. Of course he's so good that he is an immediate hit. I love this book! It's hilarious and fast paced, and actually suspenseful as it picks up speed. The tale becomes more tangled as you get further into the book and is very hard to put down. Connor seems to live up to his name and you just know the owner (Emily Kate) is going to get hurt, but somehow you can't help rooting for him anyway! This is a full size book and well worth the read! I really enjoyed it.
