Torrid Teasers Volume 43: The Whole Enchilada & Lust Desserts
by Meagan Hatfield
THE WHOLE ENCHILDADA:
Owning his own franchised Mexican restaurant isn’t the dream job Dale Jennings had hoped for. The rigid menu and atmosphere stifles his creativity, and it doesn’t take long before he finds himself at the taco shop across the street, enjoying the authentic cuisine of his drop-dead gorgeous business rival, Lina Sanchez. But, even though her food is damn near as hot as her sun-kissed body, dale is determined not to let anything stand in the way of his success. Especially not some California girl’s enchiladas.
As her best friend Lina puts it, Samantha Logan needs to get laid. Coming off a bad relationship, Sam is not eager to jump on the commitment bandwagon. But when an edibly handsome stranger catches her attention at the local bar, Sam can’t deny the intense attraction, and decides to give into the moment and satisfy her unfulfilled desires.
I loved these stories! It was a case of two great stories for the price of one. Both of these stories were HOT, HOT, HOT and yet sweet at the same time. At the end of each story I found myself wishing for more.
In The Whole Enchilada, Dale and Lina are competitors and feel that their attraction to each other can only lead to disaster. When Dale decides he’s done waiting for Lina to make the first move, he takes matters into his own hands. His dare that he can make her a dinner that would rival any that she could put on her menu leads to an unforgettable night of passion and a promising future together.
In Lust Desserts, Sam and Ben meet in a bar and follow a reckless impulse and share an incredible interlude. With both of them determined to keep their rendezvous anonymous, they try to convince themselves that it’s better this way. The problem? Neither one can get the other off their minds or out from under their skin. A chance sighting on Ben’s part leads to another night together and an even deeper and unmistakable connection. Can they get past their fears from the past?
My only regrets as far as these stories went – I wanted more! Even though both stories were short, I felt a connection with the characters and loved their witty byplay. I would love to see a story down the line where we get to revisit these two couples and see how much hotter it could get. Ms. Hatfield has a definite talent for interesting situations and loading on the heat. She’s definitely one to watch for.
