The Missing Ingredient


Sometimes it takes losing everything to realise what you had all along.


Up-and-coming London chef Marcus is poised on the edge of success, but apart from the occasional casual encounter, the only men who seem to stick around are investors. His best friend Lorraine Bradford—Raine—and her family used to keep him grounded, but a horrible accident took her life and left Marcus’s godchildren without a mother.


But if the death throws Marcus’s life into turmoil, it’s far worse for her husband, Tom—especially since she died in a car with a strange man. Tom is consumed by grief, and he shuns the help of friends. Until almost a year later, that is, when Marcus stumbles upon Tom out with his daughters and sees how far Tom has fallen. So he steps in and, bit by bit, helps them to rebuild their world until their lives return to a semblance of normality.


Then the unexpected happens: Tom confesses he has romantic feelings for Marcus, and nothing can ever be the same.

Warning: Adult-themed content 18+ years

Definitely a book worth grabbing and spending an afternoon reading. Enjoy!

Two Chicks Obsessed


Super sweet and slow burn romance between two friends who find comfort and love after loss. I really enjoyed watching Marcus and Tom fall in love quite organically.
