Sophie is an ambitious sixteen-year-old with a passion for cooking. Being practically raised in the kitchen for an Italian and Greek restaurant, Sophie has learnt almost all she knows from her family business and hopes to pursue a similar route. Her best friend Alex convinces her to audition for a cooking show and if she wins, all her dreams will kickstart into reality. However, once she gets on set she realizes that there is so much more drama that goes on behind the scenes of a reality show, including another cute chef she may or may not feel attracted to. Will she be able to stay true to who she really is without getting caught up in the drama and win the prize while still getting the boy too? I really enjoyed this quick and lighthearted read since it was paced extremely well and the characters were diverse and interesting. I also really enjoyed the cooking concept for this book and the recipes within the novel. Although everything felt a little naive and a typical teen romance, it was just too cute to put down. It’s a great summer read for those who want a break from murder mysteries. Rating: 4/5. @Iron_Rose of The Hamilton Public Library's Teen Review Board

When all Sophie wants to do is cook, but the producers of a teen based cooking reality TV show have other ideas, will Sophie participate in the saucy drama, or continue to pursue her passion?
