How to Kiss Your Enemy by Jenny Proctor: Book Review

 **Book received for consideration. All thoughts are my own.

How is it possible for the chemistry between two chefs to be hotter than a ghost pepper yet colder than liquid nitrogen?

When THE Tatum Elliott shows up to run the catering kitchen at my family’s farm and event center, I don’t trust her anymore than I did back in culinary school.

But like it or not, she’s here. On my territory. My turf. In the kitchen that shares a building with my farm-to-table restaurant.

And she can’t seem to keep her hands off my parmesan.

Our old rivalry flares to life faster than a flambé, but there’s something else flaming between us too. And it’s heating up quicker than anything we’re making in the kitchen.

But I can’t forget that Tatum is the daughter of Christopher Elliott—America’s most famous chef. She belongs in a big city, in a restaurant with her name on it. Not running the catering arm of Stonebrook Farm.

Whatever her reasons for being here now, I can’t see her permanently walking away from the fame and fortune her father can offer her, no matter how well she fits in on the farm—how well she fits with me.

She’ll leave eventually—I’m sure of it. I just have to make sure that when she does, she doesn’t take my heart with her.

It’s enemies to lovers foodie edition in this fast-paced, banter-filled romcom from bestselling author, Jenny Proctor.

How to Kiss Your Enemy is a sweet romantic comedy with all the crackling chemistry and sizzling kisses you want in a closed-door romance but no explicit scenes.

Jenny Proctor was born in the mountains of Western North Carolina, a place she still considers one of the loveliest on earth. She and her husband currently reside in the Charleston, SC area and stay busy keeping up with six children and a growing assortment of pets. She loves to hike with her family and spend time outdoors, but she also adores lounging around her home, reading great books or watching great movies and, when she’s lucky, eating delicious food she doesn’t have to prepare herself. Jenny's romantic comedy LOVE AT FIRST NOTE was a 2016 Whitney Award Winner in the Contemporary Romance category. To learn more about Jenny, visit her webpage at www.jennyproctor.com.

How to Kiss Your Enemy is the third book in the Hawthorne Brothers series. Each book in the series focuses on a different brother and as such could probably be read as a standalone. There were definitely a few minor spoilers from the previous books, so I'd certainly recommend reading them in order if you'd like to avoid them. 

This particular book is Lennox's story, and I must admit I've really been looking forward to it... and it absolutely did not disappoint. The banter between Lennox and Tatum was absolute perfection. I must admit that enemies to lovers isn't always my favorite trope, but I do love the banter it brings when it's done well... and this certainly was done well. And the chemistry between them!? Well, the food wasn't the only thing cooking in this story... and I absolutely loved it! This is definitely one that will have you swooning! Still, this remained a closed-door rom-com with lots of sizzling kisses, but nothing beyond that. 

I have enjoyed every single book in this series so far, but I do think this one might just be my favorite one yet. Flint's story is up next, and I cannot wait to see what happens next!! If you're looking for your next great romantic comedy read, this series is definitely a must-read! I adored it!
