Bastien isn’t used to bad reviews. His French restaurant is the toast of the town, and when a well-known critic insults it, he’s left off-kilter. Luckily for him he’s found a distraction. He’s just met an attractive writer at his niece’s school bake sale. He’s into food, into Bastien and the touch of kink they share, and there’s a chemistry between them that might make the perfect recipe.

James isn’t expecting to meet a good-looking French chef at a bake sale, but he’s not going to let the chance slide. It comes as a surprise when the chef turns out to be the owner of a place he knows—and has reviewed—and it puts James in a sticky situation. So he might have to omit some pertinent information to make it work… at least for now.

I loved Dinner for One by Meg Harding. This is my first time reading Meg Harding's works and I will be looking for her again. I loved the humor and character connection in this story. The story is light and fun to read and I loved it.
Bastien takes pride in his French restaurant. He is the talk of the town, but when a famous critic pans his place he is thrown. But what I liked about this, is Bastien did not feel the critic was wrong he just wants to figure out how to make it right. He is a genuine nice character. He makes pastries for the school bake sale. He sees the good in others. Very kind heart.
James goes to his sister's kids bake sale. He sees the famous chef he gave bad marks too. But his pastries at the bake sale are amazing and so is the man himself. He is regretting the review he gave. He also wants to know Bastien.
I found this story to be cute and really sweet. They both fall for each other but can Bastien take it if James tells him what he did. I loved how the relationship progresses and the sweet ending seals it for me.
