Romance Impossible by Melanie Marchande

The Book
Release Date: 25 February 2014

One man. One woman. One restaurant. A stormy temper, and a grudge that's been years in the making. It's the perfect recipe for Romance: Impossible.

But add a little heat, and anything can happen...

Jillian Brown needs a job. Chef Maxwell Dylan needs an employee who can put up with him. And for some reason, the notorious celebrity chef has his sights set on her. It's a match made in the deepest fires of hell, but Jill's desperate, and righteous indignation doesn't pay the bills.

Chef Dylan doesn't seem to remember their chance encounter years ago, when he embarrassed Jill in front of a restaurant full of customers. And Jill - well, she's willing to put the memory behind her, in the name of a steady paycheck.

But things get complicated. Tempers flare, verbal sparring soon gives way to a grudging mutual respect - and feelings that the once-bitten, twice-shy Jill isn't ready for. Especially not with a man like Chef Dylan. But with flames licking higher, can Jill resist the temptation? More importantly, does she really want to?

My Opinion  2 STARS
**ARC Provided by NetGalley and Fido Publishing for an honest review**

First of all I was completely disappointed by this book.  The write up held such promise, the writing itself was good, but the story itself, boring and the re-emergence of Jillian's ex-boyfriend was pointless.

Jillian and Max's romance was bland.  Neither turned out how I expected and the bulk of the story was a big tug of war with their inner selves.

The first romantic moment was very much wam-bam-thank-you-mam, now lets forget this ever happened.

After the big time jump at the end the way things happened felt very unrealistic even if we did get a HEA and no cliff hangar.
