I received a copy of this book for free, and I leave my review voluntarily.

Evie Alexander is an award-winning author of sexy romantic comedies with a very British sense of humour. A self-confessed ‘method writer,’ Evie has taken it upon herself to live a full and messy life, from which romantic and personal failures become fodder for her laugh-out-loud plotlines. Imaginative, passionate and frequently called ‘bonkers’ by her friends, Evie’s interests include reading, eating, saving the world, and fantasising about people who only exist between the pages of her books. Evie lives in the West country with her family, where she pens her steamy stories from the Smut Hut.

When chef Ben ‘Kenobi’ Walker gets the call to help save a VIP dinner at Foxbrooke Manor, he doesn’t expect to run into old flame Leia Perry. She’s all grown up and even more attractive than when they were teenagers – but she hasn’t forgotten what happened ten years ago, and she definitely hasn’t forgiven him.
Hard-working Leia may be named after a princess but she’s still waiting for her prince. Ben was her brother’s best friend, her first kiss and her first love. But he was also a liar — their kiss was nothing but a bet.
Now forced to work together under pressure, sparks fly. Will one night give Ben the second chance he needs to prove himself and win back Leia’s heart? Or will fate strike back and their love be lost in a galaxy far far away?

“I know.”

Leia is surprised to see Ben back home. Standing in the kitchen, she is about to cook a feast. It’s been years, and he looks delicious. Can she forget the past and navigate the future?

This was campy but cute. I’m not a Star Wars fan, so I probably didn’t appreciate or understand most of the references.

I liked Leia and Ben, and I am looking forward to reading more about them as the series develops. This was a charming introduction to a new series.

I love how Evie uses humor and effortlessly weaves it into her character’s dialogue. I love how natural the conversations seem and how spicy the romance gets.
