  • Loved It

    I loved Clancy and Miller, even though going in I knew it was going to be sad the growing relationship between them brought me a lot of joy. They were very engaging characters and they were surrounded by a loving cast of secondary characters that gave them so much support. I liked how realistic the expectations were, there was no last minute miracle cure. All in all this was a poignant but ultimately satisfying read. *I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book provided by NetGalley*

  • Lovely Story

    If you’re thinking tearjerker I’ve got to tell you… you’re right. Layla Reyne’s Dine With Me has to be one of the most heartbreaking premises for a story I can imagine. A man who is completely devoted to his life’s passion, finding out the odds are that he’ll never be able to do that work again - much less even survive with treatment - is an incredibly sad story. Luckily Layla Reyne is a romance novelist so fans, stay the course! It is SO worth it. In addition to a beautiful story of devoted friendships and a budding love affair, Dine With Me has the most gorgeous descriptions of dining experiences I’ve ever read. Foodies and romance lovers MUST read this book. It’s gorgeous!

  • Beautiful, heartfelt story

    Departures from the norm can result in very good things and Dine with Me proves that in the literary sense. Dine with Me had a different feel than other Layla Reyne books, quieter and leaving room for introspection as a main character confronts his own mortality versus the action-packed suspense driven plots we typically get. And yet, this novel still had those elements that continually draw me to the author’s stories- rich, full characters that buoy a great story with lovely romance. I absolutely loved the concept of Dine with Me. The idea of a trip of last suppers was very unique and the stories the author wove together were incredibly original and kept me invested cover to cover. I also liked Miller and Clancy and how their ages and approaches to life and food were played off each other throughout Dine with Me. I also loved the families in Dine with Me, both the ones given and those chosen by Miller. I could feel the warmth among the characters and it provided for a beautiful, heartfelt story that brought tears to my eyes in the pivotal moments wherein the characters examined life, love, passion, and family. Despite having a more serious subject matter, Dine with Me was balanced with playful banter and descriptions that would make any food-lover’s taste buds tingle. As with anytime an author pursues a different direction, I honestly didn’t know what I’d get when I started Dine with Me. Happily, it was more than I could have hoped for and I enjoyed every moment with this cast of characters. Dine with Me is an easy recommendation for anyone looking for a character-driven story of what makes life and love worth celebrating and fighting for. *eARC received via Netgalley.

  • slow build up to a solid romance

    This story has everything that a romance novel should have. When Clancy and Miller meet, they are on a foodie adventure of a lifetime. Miller has decided that he wants to revisit all of his favorite restaurants and he takes Clancy along with him. There’s an instant connection between the two men because Miller realizes quickly that Clancy is non-nonsense and genuinely interested in the experience. Reyne has made an art of writing sexual tension. This book is a really long, slow, tasty build up. The instant chemistry is written marvelously and the relationship might be fast but it feels real enough to be tantalizing and enjoyable. The first kiss is a scorcher, and I was just about as invested in the relationship as Clancy was by that point! Some of this made me tear up… but I can forgive the author for that because we all know going into a Carina press romance that there will be a happy ending. This subject matter might be difficult for some people. There’s a lot of Miller contemplating his existence as he struggles to come to terms with an illness that could be not only career-ending but life-ending. Please keep that in mind when choosing this book. The end is worth it… the struggle these two characters deal with is heart-achingly worth it.

  • Dine With Me

    I really enjoyed reading this book and definitely plan to read more books by this author. It was well written and even with the heavy topic the book still feels pretty light most of the time. Although there is an ever persistent shadow over everything and I would’ve liked a few scenes without the shadow. Clancy and Miller are both great main characters and I feel like they really came to life. I enjoyed seeing their romance build slowly throughout this book. These two were great for each other. The epilogue was an awesome wrap up for this book. I also enjoyed the focus of food that this book had. There is a great cast of side characters too and I liked how supportive everyone was. All in all this was a great romantic read with a focus on food and it deals with a difficult topic.
