When a girl bites off more than she can chew...

Laine barely has enough time for herself, much less for romance. But she's always hungry for more projects -- so she signs up to teach a cooking class at her local community center. As it turns out, the guy co-teaching the class with her, Seth, is not just cute, but downright delicious! When Seth offers her a waitressing job at his family's restaurant, Hype, Laine can't resist.

Just as Seth finally warms up to Laine, she finds out that Callie, another waitress at Hype, is cooking up a plan to steal Seth for herself. But tensions really reach their boiling point when Laine's restaurant critic mother writes a scathing review of Hype! Will Laine have to put love on the back burner again?

i liked this book a lot but the ending was not very good. but besides the ending i thought it was a pretty good book. not the best of the romantic comedies series but also not the worst.

I don't recommend this book at all! It was awful! Waste of my time even to read it. There is NO love story line. She just talks about cooking. I'm sorry but this is less than a one star!

This book was okay. I'm an avid reader of teenage romance and this was not the best ive read in this series. It was kinda slow to get into and the ending was just stupid. It will leave you saying,'that was a waste of my money!'

Daughter of a food critic, Laine swears off crushes for the summer to better concentrate on getting new experiences for her college application. When she meets Seth, all bets are off. All about cooking, teaching cooking, and teenage life.Good for list.

Honestly this book was so boring I actually fell asleep while reading it. the reason why the book is so bad is probably due to the lack of skill in writing cuz i had no relationship with the character whatsoever plus the plot is so stupid i mean seriously your "in love" with a guy u barely had a conversation with i mean come on its a horrible book

Laine loves guys, but she gets bored easily. Now, it's the summer before her senior year, and she's made herself a promise. There will be no distractions this summer. She's found her dream job of teaching a cooking class at a community center. There are two problems with this arrangement 1) she doesn't get paid enough and will college just around the corner, she'll need a 2nd job and 2) she has a drop dead gorgeous cooking partner that makes her want to throw her rule out the window. Laine figures out the first problem by accepting a job at Seth's dad's restaurant, but she can't keep Seth out of her mind. Will she break her own rule and tell him how she feels? A cute romance involving food
