After years of hard work, Gina Foxton, chef extraordinaire and former runner-up Miss Teen Vidalia Onion, is hosting her own show, Fresh Start, on Georgia public television. She’s also dating the producer. But when Fresh Start goes bad—and her boyfriend is caught in flagrante delicto with the boss’ wife—Gina decides it’s time to pursue bigger dreams … namely a gig on national television.

Gina knows she’s destined to be the Cooking Channel’s next superstar. But the execs also have their eyes on Tate Moody, Mr. “Kill It and Grill It” himself, host of the hunting, fishing, and cooking show Vittles. The ultimate man’s man, Tate is a tasty side of beef with a large, swooning female fan base, a dog named Moonpie, and a penchant for flannel shirts. Gina’s loyal devotees consist of her free-spirited college-dropout sister and her mother—who calls every single day.

When the smoke clears, there can be only one TV chef standing, and Gina and Tate are ready for the cook-off of their lives.

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Audra | 1/31/2014

    " took forever to get going but wasn't too bad once it did. definitely something to read when you don't want to think. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Traci G | 1/20/2014

    " An interesting idea, given the "food frenzy" the Food Network and its personalities have created. I found the plot a little predictable and the characters a bit one dimensional. I get SO tired of the sleeping around and crass language. I guess my life is a bit tame compared to the rest of the world... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Micah | 1/14/2014

    " I really enjoyed this book about cooks. There is not as much language or sexuality in this one as in her others but there is still some. The story is about a cooking show host and her effort to stay in the business when her show is going to be canceled. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Layne | 1/8/2014

    " Overall it was ok. Sort of boring and didn't pull me in right away like her other books but it was alright. Not as funny as the others but a good bit of entertainment. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Meredith | 1/8/2014

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Pat | 12/18/2013

    " Another Southern Drama that has humor, romance, and revenge. Mary Kay Andrews is a fast read and her books are fun. A little slower read but the I hate you, no I really love you thing was good. Humor, Romance and well revenge sometimes isn't always as sweet as they say, or is it? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Loraine | 12/17/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lynn | 10/7/2013

    " Read this in 2009. I found it to be enjoyable, though I felt the characterization was not as in-depth as I might have liked. A bit too "romancy" for me. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mathilde | 9/15/2013

    " I generally enjoy listening to Mary Kay Andrews books on audio; I find them easy and entertaining. I didn't care for this one so much - I thought it was tedious and I found the narration was not as good as other Andrew's books. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Julie Ehlers | 5/2/2013

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Elizabeth | 2/5/2013

    " A nice-ish story, but the plot was a little weak. The relationship didn't build tension very well, so it wasn't terribly believable. I think I liked her other books better. "
