Book Review: Sexy Scoundrel by Raisa Greywood
From the publisher:
Carlina Perez is in way over her head. Unexpectedly jobless and fostering an exotic pet with an insatiable appetite, this pastry chef needs a new gig faster than she can whip up a batch of scones. But when she’s tapped to serve as the personal chef to a haughty tabloid regular, she only considers the job out of sheer desperation. After all, Giorgio Acardi may be filthy rich and intoxicatingly handsome, but he’s also a first-class scoundrel.
Giorgio Acardi has it all: money, fame, an endless string of beautiful companions, and the respect of his colleagues and rivals. From the outside looking in, his life is perfect. So perfect, in fact, that he’s even got his eye on a new personal chef. She’s talented and gorgeous, and it shouldn’t make a difference whether she hates him or not as long as she does the job. But there’s something about Carlina that Giorgio just can’t resist, and he hasn’t enjoyed success by backing down from a challenge.

This was an interesting read. I loved the sparks between Gio and Carli. I love the fiery heroine and the story has plenty of heat and chemistry between the protagonists. I didn't particularly enjoy the twist, but it's a matter of personal preference. In my case, it pulled me out of the story because it annoyed me.
Other people might find this twist enjoyable. Apart from that, this is a well-written story, with interesting twists. I like the diversity of the secondary characters. Sexy Scoundrel is a solid 4 star read with plenty of heat and a walk on the darker side of sexy!
