Dine with Me By: Layla Reyne Narrated by: Cooper North

Layla delivers again with a different style of suspense that will have you crying and screaming at the same time with Dine with Me!

From the blurb:

Life never tasted so good.

Miller Sykes’s meteoric rise to award-winning chef is the stuff of culinary dreams, but it’s all crashing down around him. He’s been given a diagnosis that could cost him something even more precious than his life: his sense of taste. Rather than risk the very thing that defines him, Miller embarks on a last tour of his favorite meals while he still can. 

But there’s a catch: he needs a financial backer to make it happen, and he doesn’t want anyone to know he’s sick. 

Dr. Clancy Rhodes has two weeks to come to terms with putting aside oncology to work at his father’s thriving plastic surgery practice. When the opportunity to travel with a Michelin-starred chef presents itself, the foodie in him can’t believe it. It doesn’t hurt that Miller’s rugged good looks are exactly Clancy’s cup of joe. 

As Clancy and Miller travel from coast to coast and indulge in everything from dive bars to the most decadent of culinary experiences, they’re suddenly sharing a lot more than delicious meals. Sparks fly as they bond over their love of flavors and the pressures of great expectations. But when Miller’s health takes a turn for the worse, Clancy must convince him he’s more - so much more - than just his taste buds. And that together, they can win a battle that once seemed hopeless.

Tatted_book_freak's Review:

Layla’s name caught my eye with this story, and I'm happy it did. The storyline was perfect, the characters enticing, and a leisurely, flowing pace. The impending treatment, or lack thereof, captured my attention, with tears gushing until the end. 

So, the narration is typically my pet peeve because nothing is worse than a monotone voice lacking personality or emotions. Cooper North exceeded my expectations with Dine with Me, capturing both characters' personalities and bringing them to life excitedly and skillfully!
