Adult Review: Recipe for Persuasion

Recipe for Persuasion (The Rajes, #2)
* Book 2 in the Rajes series *

Curried Dreams is everything to Ashna. It's her legacy and right now the restaurant is struggling badly. Ashna has to do something to save it. When her friends offers her a spot in a reality cooking show with celebrity partners, she hesitates.

Yes, it might solver her money programs. But Ashna has emotional baggage tied with cooking. She can't seem to make anything except her deceased father's recipes.

Ashna's has a complicated relationship with her parents and it's tied her up in knots. She gave up the love of her life for her family. And now, Rico's returned. He's her celebrity on the show. Immediately, their meet-cute goes viral and everyone's rooting for them- both on and off the camera. But Ashna needs to square away her past before reaching for future happiness.
My Thoughts: This is a Persuasion retelling. And it was really good. I enjoyed seeing familiar faces from the previous book. My heart broke for Ashna and her childhood. I wanted to wrap her up in a giant hug. I did love her cousins and her aunt and how they looked after her. I enjoyed getting to know Ashna's mother and the story behind her marriage. And I loved the cooking show and the fans. Of course I loved hearing about all that food too! I really hope there are more books with this family in the works. 

Cover Thoughts: Cute

Library Recommendation: A must have series for your library's romance collection - a given since these are Jane Austen retellings!
