Alex Santorini puts his family first and foremost, and that's going to keep him behind the grill at the family restaurant for the rest of his life, especially if his Greek grandmother has anything to say about it. But when a local winery needs a chef to step in to cook for a celebrity wedding, Alex jumps at the opportunity to showcase his culinary skills...and a chance to get closer to the winery owner who has captivated - and refused - his attention.
Grace Donovan is in a bind and knows that the answer to all her problems is one sexy Greek chef who has everything she needs...and everything that scares the hell out of her. Raised in a series of ever-changing foster homes, Grace has spent her life using science and logic to surround herself with protective walls. With all his passion and intensity, Alex could burn those walls down and, like everyone else in her life, leave her broken and alone.
As Alex and Grace join forces to land the wedding of the year, they also launch a search for the mother of a three puppies abandoned at the winery...only to discover a shocking connection to Grace's own mother and her shadowy past. When the truth comes out, their romance faces its greatest test. Will Grace choose the family she's wanted her whole life...or the love she may never find again?
Alex and John Santorini are identical twins. They may look the same but their personalities are very different. Alex has dreamed of being a chef with his own place to work his culinary magic. Due to family loyalty he's stayed with the family delicatessen to honor his late father. Grace Donovan had a dream of finding her lost family. They gave her up and she needs to know why. Her other dream was owning a winery and when that chance came about she grabbed it. Now she's in a bind needing a chef and wouldn't you know it Alex is a chef. Perfect right? Alex is attracted to Grace and has been trying everything he can to get her attention and strike up a conversation. It isn't until he starts helping her with her chef problem that they finally start to connect. Grace is a tough nut to crack but Alex has the confidence and drive to not only help her with her work problems but crack that barrier on her emotional problems. I loved Alex and Grace. They were a team. They worked great together and all of Alex's huge family was behind the pair adding to the fun in this story.
