Book Blurb:

My Review:

Jake Campbell takes one look at sexy chef Abbie Duncan and is smitten. She's completely hands-off as he's working undercover in a sting operation to bring down a drug ring inside a posh Cape Cod resort. Everyone is a suspect to Jake but he can't stop the attraction he feels for Abbie. The more he gets to know her, the more he wants to confess his real identity. When tragedy strikes, the walls around his heart crumble. He's breaking all of Abbie's rules and he doesn't care. He'll do anything to protect her, even if it means walking away.

Breaking the Rules is such an incredible romance, I have to gush for a moment. First off, kudos to Katie O'Sullivan on her research on the ins and outs of a fine dining restaurant. Her detailed description on chefs. managers and the rampant abuse of drugs in the culinary world is 100% accurate. Well done. The romance between Jake and Abbie is hot stuff and I enjoyed every minute of it. There's plenty of suspense, too, which had me whipping through the pages. There's a bit of angst in this romance but it's really well done. If you're looking for a romance you can't put down and read in one or two sittings, pick up Breaking the Rules. Highly recommend!

My Rating: 5+ stars
