Once again we get an amazingly balanced story from Katherine McIntyre that draws you in and holds you until you finish the Stronger Than Passion...
From the blurb:
Hudson West is the enemy.
The calm, arrogant, stupidly hot owner of the rival restaurant in town never fails to push Nico Shah’s buttons. So when he and Hudson are invited to collaborate to cater the Chesapeake Days festival, he wants to say hell no. But with his mother’s upcoming transplant, he needs that money.
Nico Shah is trouble.
Hudson’s noticed the gorgeous, witty flirt and has veered far away. He’s looking for commitment while Nico’s looking for his next flavor of the night. Except now that they’re working together, neither can ignore the chemistry that’s one spark away from burning down a forest. And when they finally collide, the connection is beyond anything either has experienced.
But with Nico still terrified of the word "boyfriend" and Hudson needing someone who belongs to him, this can only end in heartbreak.
Rivals, dare I say, enemies? The delicious sparks between Hudson and Nico are evident from their first encounter and they interpret those sparks as rivalry, dislike and jealousy until they're forced to work together and spend time together... and then those sparks ignite!
Both men seem to enjoy dancing in the one step forward, two steps back style, which makes for great reading and some frustrating times for the characters, but never fear... they both seem to find moments of clarity and when they do communicate - wow! The sparks, the flames, the inferno, the Passion!
Stronger Than Passion is a fabulous read that kept me glued to the pages of the book from start to finish, even when I wanted to reach into my kindle and shake the characters... if you're looking for a steamy, passionate rollercoaster of a story with family drama, hesitant men and strong chemistry than you'll want to add Stronger Than Passion to your TBR immediately! This book is part of the Chesapeake Days series but can be read as standalone.
