Descripción

From the author of Pride, Prejudice, and Other Flavors comes another , clever, deeply layered, and heartwarming romantic comedy that follows in the Jane Austen tradition—this time, with a twist on Persuasion.

Chef Ashna Raje desperately needs a new strategy. How else can she save her beloved restaurant and prove to her estranged, overachieving mother that she isn't a complete screw up? When she's asked to join the cast of Cooking with the Stars, the latest hit reality show teaming chefs with celebrities, it seems like just the leap of faith she needs to put her restaurant back on the map. She's a chef, what's the worst that could happen?

Rico Silva, that's what.

Being paired with a celebrity who was her first love, the man who ghosted her at the worst possible time in her life, only proves what Ashna has always believed: leaps of faith are a recipe for disaster.

FIFA winning soccer star Rico Silva isn't too happy to be paired up with Ashna either. Losing Ashna years ago almost destroyed him. The only silver lining to this bizarre situation is that he can finally prove to Ashna that he's definitely over her.

But when their catastrophic first meeting goes viral, social media becomes obsessed with their chemistry. The competition on the show is fierce…and so is the simmering desire between Ashna and Rico.  Every minute they spend together rekindles feelings that pull them toward their disastrous past. Will letting go again be another recipe for heartbreak—or a recipe for persuasion…?

In Recipe for Persuasion, Sonali Dev once again takes readers on an unforgettable adventure in this fresh, fun, and enchanting romantic comedy.

    *E-ARC received from Edelweiss Plus with the understanding that I would post an honest review. No money or other goods were exchanged, and all views are my own.*Ashna Raje is a chef trying to keep her deceased father's restaurant afloat, but having a really tough time because she has panic attacks any time she deviates from his recipes. With her business struggling, she reluctantly agrees to her cousins' proposal that she join a baking show where she's paired up with a celebrity. But then her celebrity ends up being Fredirico "Rico" Silva the former soccer star and high school ex-boyfriend that her family never knew about.I really liked the first book in this loose series playing off of Jane Austen's work (one of the families has the last name Dashwood, for example, and they reference Persuasion in this one as well). But I really really can't stand the trope of we're mad at each other because we can't have a conversation, and that's not just the issue between her and Rico, but also with Ashna and her mother. The plot took awhile to get going, and I simply didn't find it as delightful as Pride, Prejudice, and Other Flavors - though to be fair, that could have more to do with my familiarity of Pride and Prejudice over Persuasion. I wasn't catching all the Easter eggs and getting just as much enjoyment out of that than the story itself. Enjoyable, just not quite reaching my expectations.

    This Jane Austen inspired contemporary romance novel was a decent, uniquely written diverse-filled read that left me pleasantly surprised on how much I didn't completely hate it. Sure Ashna estranged mother Shobj annoyed me like no other but the rekindle romance between Ansha and Rico made up for it. Overall, it was not a bad read and would definitely keep this author on my radar for future releases.
