You can call me arrogant as much as you want. But when you're the best at what you do and have the hottest restaurant on the west coast, with enough Michelin stars to make Gordon Ramsay's head spin, you've earned the right to your confidence.

When I give an instruction in the kitchen, it's not a suggestion--it's an order. So when a new chef thinks she can do things her way, and dares to say so to my face, even her sharp wit and gorgeous pouty lips don't make it okay.

But I have to admit, she's got talent. She's creative in the kitchen and not even that double-breasted chef jacket can hide her perfect body. As I get to know her, I can't help wanting to know everything she thinks. I've never met a more talented chef. And I've never met a sassier and sexier woman in my life.

There's only one way this push and pull can end.

With her in my bed, begging for more.

My Thoughts on Cocky Chef

JD Hawkins is just one of those authors that you need to read!! I discovered him with his last release Unprofessional and when I heard he was releasing Cocky Chef I couldn’t wait to read! Mr Hawkins didn’t disappoint!! I just loved everything about it! The story flowed effortlessly and the characters made you fall in love with them! Even if you were irritated a bit in the beginning! Cocky Chef is a total swoon worthy book that just solidified JD Hawkins as one of my new favorite authors! This is a complete story told in alternating points of views and is a complete story.

Willow just relocated to Los Angeles after a failed attempt at opening her own restaurant in her home town. Her friend from cooking school convinces her LA is the place to be for a chef and she needed to go there to continue learning from the best and they could open a restaurant together.  She lands a spot as a line cook in one of the hottest restaurants in town! The owner is a world renowned chef and has the reputation of also being a perfectionist but that can also mean he can be a first class jerk.  She is hired by the restaurant manager and didn’t realize who the owner is until she is called out for making a change to a dish.

Cole didn’t become one of the top chefs in the world just by being a nice guy. He’s worked hard to climb his way to the top and expects his dishes to be followed to a T.  When he calls out Willow he’s is taking back on her response. Nobody ever challenges him and here she just met him and told him what was wrong with it and how to make it better.  Something sparks in him that he’s never experienced before.  He’s always been passionate about his profession and it seems that he’s met his match.

Cole convinces Willow to go out on a date with him. Sparks fly and who knew cooking could be so sexy!!??  I loved their chemistry and how Willow didn’t care who Cole was.  But what happens when her dream is served to her on a silver platter? She came out to LA for a reason and now that it’s in front of her will she be able to jump in with both feet?  Can Cole offer the stability in an established restaurant? Which will she choose??  You will need to read Cocky Chef to find out!! This was a solid 4 star read for me and one I would highly recommend!!

She lets out a sigh of relief, but my cock hears something different in her gasping exhale. I bring my thumb slowly to a speck at the side of her mouth, fingers resting on the round perfection of her jawline. She stills under my touch and catches my gaze, time slowing with the deliberateness of my movements.

I brush the speck, but don’t pull away. Instead, I bring my thumb back across those ever-pouted lips, tracing their dip and fullness, letting her feel the texture of hands rough and scarred from a lifetime in kitchens, our eyes locked together in a moment of anticipation, emotions raging like an angry sea against the dam of the distance between us.

Her lips part slightly, I feel her shortening breath on my hand, and I push my thumb between those juicy, perfect lips, fingers pressing against the base of her ear. Her gentle gasp breaks the silence, before she closes those soft lips around my thumb, the sight of them pressing against my skin making my cock full against my pants. Her teeth gently squeezing my nail, tongue flickering as I push the finger inside the hot wetness of her mouth.

My other hand already on her waist, I pull her toward me, press her lithe body up against mine. Those magnificent hips swaying and rubbing against mine, her weight shifting onto me, breasts heaving, nipples so hard now I can feel them through that sweater dress.

“You’re fucking incredible,” I growl. Prelude to pulling her toward me, my finger in her mouth still, angling her head so I can taste the tenderness of her neck, run my sensitive tastebuds down the taut muscles, follow the path that leads me to the front of her chest. Quiet moans getting louder as I run my tongue down the softness of her cleavage, her dress my enemy now as I pull it down and bury my teeth in her breasts.

“Oh God…” she moans. “Cole…”
