    1. Kitty's review posted on Guilty Pleasures Book ReviewsSo, have you ever read a book by an author that you’ve never read before and fall madly in love with the story, the writing style and the author. I love when that happens and it definitely happened to me with “Monster Chef”.Really, the name of the book got me. Visions of Gordon Ramsey swimming in my mind had me really curious about this book. But, this story held so much more than an angry Chef and the woman that steals his heart.This i [...]

    5. This is the second book that I have ever read by Margaret and I must say that I am seriously fan girl crushing over her and her work. I have yet to be disappointed by her work and I look forward to reading more from her. This book what can I say WOW there are so many good things that I can say but I don't want to give anything away so all I'm going to say is please if you don't read another book make sure you read this. The story line will have you hooked from the beginning and this book will ta [...]

    6. 3 Stars just OK for meI read yesterday and it was just ok for me. I think what bothered me was that I felt no real development between the two of them. One minute they hate each other and the next, bamI was like what and how did this happen so fast, so fast I didn't even know it or see it really happen. There was no build-up for me. I thought it was a great premise for a story but I didn't care for the execution Holly was just ehhhh, ok, for me that was a big reason and Pierre was good but he di [...]

    7. OMG I loved Monster Chef! I loved Pierre and Holly and this is a love story! Pierre wasn't truly a monster just a man that was so hurt by the loss of his wife. So he was like a bear with a thorn in his paw! Holly aka (mon chéri)really knows how to handle Pierre and quickly puts him in his place. I don't think there will ever be a dull moment between the two of them. Oh and Monster Chef is also very HOT! Talk about passion between Pierre & Holly. oh my oh my! I loved the phone sexI loved the [...]

    8. 3.5 StarsI really like this book exceeeeeeeeept the fact that it all moved so FAST. I think I would have been seriously head over heels for this one has the pace been slower. The setting is a welcome change, Holly is a great heroine, and Pierre is just to melt for. Just tap the brakes a bit, and I would have been gushing over this one.

    9. 5 SEXY SECOND CHANCE ROMANCE STARSI loved every moment of this story. From its highs to its lows. An exceptional love story about two hurting souls who find each other in the most unexpected, entertaining and absorbing way. Will they be able to endure a second chance romance?Margaret McHeyzer, let me just say – Thank you for brining Pierre LeRoux to your readers. He is everything from impossible to alluring.This story captivated my heart in so many ways. From the characters being in their mid- [...]

    10. I have never read anything by Margaret McHeyzer before, but I saw the book trailer for Chef Pierre and I had to read it, and I'm so glad I did. Set in Sydney, Australia, Chef Pierre tells the story of single Mum Holly, who is trying to move on with her life after losing her husband several years before. She gets a maitre de job in an exclusive restaurant, where she meets head chef Pierre. Pierre is typical of what you hear about celebrity chefs. Moody, arrogant, full of himself and he treats eve [...]

    11. I loved this book! I devoured it in 24 hours because I couldn’t put it down. Ms. McHeyzer made these characters people I was dying to get to know better. I wanted to delve into their psyches and make friends with them. This was my first book by her, but I can promise it won’t be my last. Pierre and Holly are two broken souls not even sure what they are looking for. They meet at the restaurant where Pierre is the head chef and Holly has just taken the maitre-d position. At first glance, Pierr [...]

    12. MONSTER CHEF by Margaret McHeyzerOUI!! Tis a good story!!!Pierre & HollyLet's talk about Monster Chef. This book was comical, sexy, and sometimes kind of corny. At times I felt it hard to relate to the characters and at others I felt a kindred spirit with them. My emotions were all over the grid on this one. I wouldn't exactly say that Pierre and Holly we're a perfect match, but they did make this story is very fascinating.Pierre is a very cocky, self centered, arrogant bastard. I knew his a [...]

    13. I loved this book it was the perfect blend of romance, emotional turmoil, and hot hot hot scenes. Monster Chef is a Second Chance at Love Romance; not for two long lost loves but for two people who had love and lost only to find it again with each other. I loved the book it splits the POV between the two main characters it was like listening Toni Collette and Gerard Depardieu in my head. Not looks wise; I was imagining two completely different people, it was described so well no celebrity imagin [...]

    14. Karia’s thoughts…and food order!I was actually excited for this one, so I thank NetGalley for the delayed, but finally approved ARC. Holly seemed very American/Canadian to me. Her language usage and manners were quite North American…Pierre on the other hand was so French is was tasty! Each of these wounded souls were looking for a new start. Along the way, they find each other and fight, then kiss, then fight, then kiss, then fight some more! I loved that part. I actually found myself enjo [...]

    15. This is so much more than a second chance love story. This is a second chance at life story!Yet another strong and feminine character joins the ranks of McHeyzer’s finery. Holly is going for this job to keep her mind occupied so she doesn’t drown in the depths of widowhood. She doesn’t lose any of her spark when Pierre comes along, if anything, she becomes stronger. Pierre, he’s a tough one to take. He’s rude, he’s crude but he’s barely hanging onto life by a thread. He can’t fee [...]

    21. Monster Chef by Margaret McHeyzer5 Michelin stars! Margaret McHeyzer never ceases to amaze me.

Pierre, with his ingrained French arrogance and his way around a deconstructed lemon meringue pie and Holly with h [...]

    22. I was gifted a copy of this book for review.This story is so different from a general romance. I absolutely loved it although I did cry a little. Holly is such a sweet, loving person, as well as a fantastic mom to her 7 year old. Not only does she have those qualities but she is also dealing with the tragic and sudden death of her husband. Even though she is a wonderful person she is also the only person who will stand up to Pierre. I loved how she straightened her back and absolutely did not ba [...]

    25. Wow, I enjoyed this book so much! The characters were so well written, I found myself feeling like I knew them and felt their pain. Pierre, Holly, and Emma were all such strong characters and woven together perfectly. At times you hate Pierre, love him, and then want to slap him.

I have never read anything by this author before, but if the rest of her stories are even remotely this good, they will be terrific and I loo [...]
