Recipe for a Curse, by Lissa Kasey
When a blizzard leads Montana to the home of local recluse and military veteran, Rio, he discovers the man he's been fawning over is food insecure and practically homeless. He’s determined to help, even if it means bringing Rio home with him.
But Rio is more than just shy and afraid to be around people. He’s cursed. He knows Montana doesn’t see the monster inside him, but Rio is afraid of losing control.
Montana doesn’t understand why Rio’s always hungry but he doesn’t care. The fact that he loves to cook and Rio needs to eat means they are a match made in heaven, right?
The execution of the writing was MUCH cleaner. I didn't spot any repetitions, no awkward phrasing, and I was able to zoom straight through without any niggles jolting me out of the moment. I'm really pleased because, if it hadn't been for those issues, Book 1 would have been 5*, and now I get to give Book 2 the rating it deserves, too.
I was a bit nervous about starting Book 3, when I realised I didn't know either of the MC's mentioned in the blurb. But, now that I've read Book 2, I have an idea of who Brand is and I'm excited to meet this friend of Montana's.
