    1. Feel the Heat certainly made me hot under the collar with all the sexual chemistry, flirting and dirty talk between Jack and Lili made Feel the Heat a great read for me.Jack Kilroy was a refreshing change he is a bossy alpha but what made Jack different for me was the fact he did not want a quick f ck or a one night stand with Lili he wants to date her first get to know her before they sleep together Jack is tired of being used by women for his celebrity Chef status and Lili is the first woman i [...]


    2. This book s characters felt so fickle I couldn t get a sense of their personality other than understanding their interests and relationships They ping pinged back and forth so often I would catch myself wondering what I missed on the prior pages that set them up for an estrangement or separation.It was weird I m not convinced I don t like the author yet, and will try again but this book was weird I didn t feel the chemistry at all


    3. This is probably like 3.5, but I m going to round up to four for a couple of reasons 1 Chicago, 2 it s a well done former fat girl book, 3 it contains complicated family dynamics that I don t hate which is rare, and 4 I kept picturing Jack Davenport as the hero, which is always a win as far as I m concerned I blame watching Smash.But really, this is very enjoyable A little purple kitcheny prosey at times, but I loved the dynamics and the characters and that it used the city, so I m going to go [...]


    4. Oh Jack The poor guy, he didn t know what hit him when he met his Lili Their coming together was such an enjoyable read The ups and downs, crazy family hyjinks, sassy siblings and super sexy food make for a great read I want NOW I hate to wish away my summer but I m really wishing it was August cause Cara s book preview has me heading to next to see if its available for pre order.


    5. This book was a quick, awesome romance underlining story lines with the secondary characters Something that I totally a sucker for, just look at my own book, lol I have to say that I really enjoyed the heat coming from this book s kitchen Well told and very interesting

    7. Reviewed for Read Your Writes Book ReviewsreadyourwritesI m not quite sure what to say about this book I know that statement sounds bad, but I don t mean it in a bad way FEEL THE HEAT by Kate Meader is beyond what I expected As a first time published author, Kate has given the reader everything There s humor, mouth watering food, HOT sex and society issues all put together I went from spewing my drink one minute, to needing ice water because the scenes were so hot the next, and then being hungry [...]


    8. Coming back from a costume party, Lili catch a stranger in the family restaurant in the middle of the night What is the trespasser doing in the kitchen signing so badly But wait a minute Is that Jack Kilroy, sexy Brit and star of a cooking show Attacked with a pan by a woman dressed as a superhero was certainly not how Jack envisioned his evening It s all his producer s fault, who forgot to tell her sister about the concept of the new show a cooking contest between Jack and an other chef, so it [...]

    11. 3.5 stars A charming romance involving a former fat chick , a celebrity chef, a close knit Italian family, a cast iron skillet, a wonder woman costume, a scooter and social media scandals.Finally a book where you don t want to throttle the heroine for her constant low self esteem it s present here, but well managed and where her sister isn t the evil pretty one and actually sticks up for her former fat chick baby sister.This story was well put together and thought out Funny, steamy and about fa [...]



    12. I don t read contemporary romance much these days When I heard this one had a chef hero and a food loving heroine who wasn t thin, I knew I had to give it a try I m really glad I did, too I liked Lili and Jack, the main characters, a lot Lili was a curvy woman who loved food, and had to deal with some insecurities As a kid, she d been bullied for being overweight As an adult, she was confident in her body, but still had some wounds I loved Lili, though Not only was she trying to be confident in [...]

    15. There is one BIG PROBLEM with this book YOU GET HUNGRY Definitely worth the time to read Meader has a way with words and situations, that keep you interested though out all the book,even though the end is pretty predictable, the twists and turns in the book generally with food that sounds to die for, keep you glued to the book.Funny situations, witty banter, and did I mention food It s a very enjoyable read Jack is a very heavy personality with a lot of magnetism, and with a very busy schedule, [...]


    16. Kate Meader s debut novel, Feel the Heat, is smart, funny and sexy hooooot I was literally smiling, chuckling or laughing out loud at some point on almost every page of this book The hero is a rising star in the TV chef world and the heroine is the artsy, dutiful daughter of an old world Italian Chicago Restaurateur I loved how personal flaws drove these characters and gave them a sense of humanity and relatability Meader has a deft mastery of subtly turning a phrase in such a way as to heighten [...]


    17. I first saw this book at this years RT Convention and it pulled me towards it I m so glad I took the post card with the cover home with me so I could order it I ended up loving it This is a fun book that gets beneath the skin of its characters You can t help but loving how Jack pushes Lili into doing the things she really wants to do He also tries to get her family to see the try woman, not the little girl they see There is a lot of buttons pushed in this book for the characters and they are han [...]

    19. This is the first book in the series I really loved the story It was a fun, quick read The H h had really good chemistry Jack is a well known popular chef and Lili is not living her life but is helping everyone she loves I also really enjoyed the supporting characters and can t wait to start the next book.


    20. I ve had this book on my TBR since forever and I ve started reading it off and on a number of times Each time I would read a few pages here, a few pages there and I think the reason why I struggled to get into it was because I was expecting something light and easy This book was anything but Kate Meader gives her characters this intensity that is all consuming and heavy They re complex and dynamic, with problems that one can identify and resonate with Lili DeLuca is her family s saving grace She [...]


    21. Although i liked this book it seemed to take forever to read and i was a little unsure of the chemistry between Lili and Jack to begin with, the will they won t they, push and pull saga.Lili has the past fat girl image and mentality to get over, especially as she is still on the very curvy side Having a celebrity chef fawn over her is something Lili feels inadequate for especially as her family seem to have problems of their own and seem to have taken all of Lili s care and attention without giv [...]


    22. This is the series that started my love affair with all things Kate Meader but I only discovered it with the final book and, until today, I never found the time to go back and read the first two I can t beleive I waited so long This story was a slow burning, tension filled romance that explored the ugly side of fame and the psychological scarring side of being the fat girl without dwelling ONLY on those two points Kate Meader wrote a well rounded story that seemed to pack the punch of a year lon [...]


    23.

    24. I purposefully read this book in the middle of February, wanting something warm to sizzle the winter nights and wowere s a reason this title uses the word heat.This is the first full length novel I ve read by Kate Meader my other experience with her was her short story Rekindle the Flame, both set in Chicago and both dealing with interesting families Feel the Heat tells the story of Jack Kilroy, a celebrity chef from Great Britain who has hit it big, both in terms of his award winning restaurant [...]


    25. 4 5 stars This book was such a tease OMG I loved everything in this book But I have to say their were a couple of things that left me frustrated P 1 Jack and Lilis constant on and off relationship OMG how it bugged me P I mean for real It got to the point where I was like you know what whatever, doesn t surprise me , and the worst part about it is that they would take turns doing it, I mean with Jack not getting used to somebody taking control if the relationship, and Lilis status on the interne [...]


    26. 4 solid stars Kate Meader s voice is one that should be heard all over as a rising author in contemporary romance Her story telling and characterizations are amazing You laugh with her characters and you feel for them too.The Story Jack Kilroy is the epitome of a self made man His empire, so to speak, is really the result not just of great talent, which he abundantly has, but also of great perseverance and will Despite the absence of his father, whose later reappearance shattered whatever illusi [...]


    27. Funny enough I read the second one of this series a couple of months back when I requested this on Netgalley I thought this was the third book and thought I give this series another try, but this is a re release So I kinda by accident ended up reading the first one And boy am I glad Because I like this one better.The series is can be read as standalone by the way And while there was a wee bit of spoilers in the second one, it was very minimal I still would advice you, to read it in order, just b [...]
