"Flirting with Felicity" by Gerri Russell

Felicity Wright never expected to inherit the hotel where she works as head chef. But now, she’ll do anything to keep the Bancroft Hotel operating—even if that means mixing it up with the late owner’s handsome nephew, Blake Bancroft. He’s here to challenge her unexpected inheritance of the Bancroft Hotel, and there’s no way either of them are walking away without a fight.

When his uncle wills away his family’s oldest property, Blake Bancroft cooks up a plan to get it back. To check out his competition, he’ll need to check in. Too bad his first encounter with Felicity proves to be anything but smooth. As their battle over ownership begins, things begin to heat up between them—and not just in the kitchen. Their attraction may be a recipe for disaster. Yet with the right ingredients, it could turn into a recipe for love…

In her debut contemporary romance, award-winning historical romance author Gerri Russell whips up a sweet, passionate, and unforgettably delectable story.

My Review: 
Gerri Russell's first Contemporary Romance is a hit. Felicity inherited a hotel and restaurant from a kind old hotel resident she had befriended. Little did she know that he was a billionaire, and the owner of the hotel. The wrench in the plan - the nephew, Blake. Throughout the story, Blake and Felicity each work to convince the other of their intentions with regard to the hotel, and in the course they fall in love. I was able to identify and relate to both of the characters quickly in the book - it captured me from the first page. Even Blake, while a billionaire, was relatable to me and didn't hesitate to get his hands dirty and help out with Felicity in the kitchen. I felt I could see Blake's transformation throughout the story and KNEW in the end he would do the right thing. And as it turned out, they both won!! An engaging read from Gerri Russell and a great book for me to read over the Christmas holiday!!
