    “A Taste of Sage” was uneventful, dull, and lacked appealed. The relationship between Lumi and Julien was just about non existent and there was no real connection at all between them beside a physical attraction. It had potential but the author failed to meet them which is unfortunate because I was really looking forward to a culinary romance.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • A Tasty Debut

    A Taste of Sage is the debut novel for Yaffa Santos. This was a different kind of read for me because it wasn't 100& straight contemporary, there is a tiny bit of magical elements which was a fun twist. The title tells you this is a foodie romance and another neat twist was the inclusion of the recipes Lumi cooks throughout the story. Now for the meat of things... Lumi is Dominican and has a real love for food. When she talks about the creation and the experimentation with flavors you can feel her passion. She is in her element. I loved her joy and enthusiasm. Losing her restaurant took a little of that from her which was understandable. On the flip side there's Julien. I don't want to say he didn't have the same passion, but his wasn't as pure. He was more about the status and the prestige and he was that stereotypical "nightmare" chef. Basically he and Lumi were oil and water. I fully admit I can be hard on characters sometimes. They make or break a book for me. I don't see myself as them, but more I relate to them as people I'd want to hang out with or not. Me and Lumi...we'd chill. She'd make some good food. We could laugh talk and discuss the best wines and bath bombs because she is a woman after my own heart when it came to that. LOL Julien...eh let's just say he's that friend of my husband that I tolerate, but if he missed coming to the cookout I wouldn't be sad. All jokes aside the story had its moments. Being able to see Julien through Lumi's eyes, especially in relation to her gift of tasting emotions through foods is what saved him for me. Because yeah...at times I struggled. Overall this was a great debut novel. Great food talked about. Diverse characters. And simply a fun fresh take. I'm looking forward to Yaffa's next book for sure. Final rating 4.5 stars **I received an ARC copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving a review**
