  • You won't want to put it down

    I received an ARC of this book to read through Edelweiss+ in exchange for a fair review. Recipe for Persuasion by Sonali Dev is the second book in her Austen themed series The Rajes. This book is the story of chef Ashna Raje who desperate to find a way to save her deceased father’s struggling restaurant signs on to a reality television cooking show where working chefs are paired with celebrities competing for a prize of one hundred thousand dollars. Now, if only she can make it through without having one the panic attacks that knock her off her feet whenever she tries to cook something that isn’t her father’s recipe. Frederico (Rico) Silva, world-famous newly retired soccer star, is looking for closure. When Rico googles Ashna’s name, he sees that she’s going to be on Cooking with the Stars and he asks his agent to get him on the show and partnered with Ashna because he feels that he’s never going to be able to move on with his life until he deals with his unresolved feelings for Ashna his high school girlfriend whom he thinks dumped him because he wasn’t good enough for her. Both Ashna and Rico had horrendous childhoods and watching them work through the trauma of their pasts to find their way back to each other will have you on a rollercoaster of all the emotions. I could not put this book down, nothing got done that day and I didn’t go to bed until I’d read the last word. Medium Steam.

  • Stunning

    To save her restaurant, Ashna agrees to appear as the master chef on a TV cooking competition show, despite her chronic anxiety. She's shocked when the celebrity she's paired with is her high school boyfriend, soccer star Rico. After a string of failed relationships, Rico decides to seek closure with the woman who shattered his heart. When he finds out Ashna is appearing on the TV show, he convinces his agent to book him on it as her partner. Seeing Rico again forces Ashna to come to terms with the tragedy that led to their breakup. Will the truth finally set them free from their past so they can move forward with a future together? This stunning romance and family saga is an emotional journey through time and across continents. Scarred and broken by her parents' tumultuous marriage, Ashna feels unworthy of love. Though resentful at first of how Ashna sent him away, Rico can't help wondering how the fierce girl he knew has grown into a woman facing debilitating fear. This heart-wrenching novel takes on dark subjects but ends in a spirit of love and hope.

  • 2.5 STARS

    This Jane Austen inspired contemporary romance novel was a decent, uniquely written diverse-filled read that left me pleasantly surprised on how much I didn't completely hate it. Sure Ashna estranged mother Shobj annoyed me like no other but the rekindle romance between Ansha and Rico made up for it. Overall, it was not a bad read and would definitely keep this author on my radar for future releases.

    Thanks for your feedback!
