Review: When I’m with you

When I’m with you is the story of Elise and Lucien. She’s a chef in training and he’s a restauranteur. They meet at his restaurant and sparks fly. Lucien initially takes her on to help her but soon, they develop more than a boss-employee relationship.

Neither the hero nor the heroine stop working throughout the book. Their jobs don’t magically disappear once they meet. They’re real in the entire book and that’s something I truly appreciated as a reader.

Elise is a complex woman who’s pretty misunderstood. Lucien has been burned before and is a little gruff as a result. Their issues come out through their relationship and are resolved in and out of the bedroom.

A note of warning, this is not a gentle read where the sexual act is hinted at. There are some graphic scenes here and if that’s not your cup of tea, stay away.

For all the plot and character development, this book is a love story. I found it a captivating, easy read that I couldn’t put down. I would absolutely recommend this book but I’d buy the complete novel, not the pieces.

“She took flight at what she saw–an angry, aroused, primal male animal. She hoped Lucien didn’t notice how fast she moved as she scurried out the door, feeling as if the devil truly was on her heels.” Pg. 21 from “When I’m with you” by Beth Kery.
