Let the game of seduction begin...
I had the pleasure of reviewing this book and I have to tell you that I am now a big fan of Gina Gordon. I devoured this book and I honestly can't imagine being able to read this book any other way. From the first page to the last page, you are sucked in to the story, the characters and the writing that everything that you are supposed to be doing (ahem, laundry, cooking dinner, sleeping...) just vanishes from your mind. 

I loved the heroine, Veronica Whitfield. She was created with such a good heart that you are rooting for her (or cheering for her) from the first scene. And Finn, is the perfect man. The brother's best friend, is my favorite romantic trope. The sexual tension between Veronica and Finn is electric and the sexy-scenes--whoa! Miss Gordon has a knack for not only creating steamy sexy scenes, but also tamping up the emotions. When reading this book, there should be a warning to have a fan or a very cold drink nearby. Sizzling and sexy!

The plot is very believable and the characters are so well-rounded. There wasn't a dull or boring moment in the book. Miss Gordon's writing style is beautiful and the words just float off the page. I really enjoyed this book. I would give it five solid stars. An hour after I finished Recipe for Seduction, I downloaded the other Madewood brothers series from Amazon, Recipe for Satisfaction and Recipe for Attraction. I can't wait to start reading! 

Book Synopsis:
Let the game of seduction begin…
Veronica Whitfield feels like a frumpy old maid. After ten years of raising her younger siblings, she’s desperate to get her sexy back. And why not find it with the man she’s been in lust with since she was twelve years old—her brother’s best friend, Finn O’Reilly?
Finn is looking for love. And not any love—true love. Complete with the white picket fence, two children, and a dog. He’s just been a little unlucky finding it, and he sure as hell isn’t about to consider his best friend’s little sister for the job, no matter how badly he wants her in his bed.
But then Veronica propositions him with a game of dark, delicious seduction. Finn is tempted to indulge his hidden need for kink, but at what cost? Following through could very well ruin their friendship, but maybe—just maybe—helping Veronica rediscover her sexy side is exactly what he needs to find love at last…

Author Bio: When her dream of becoming a mafia princess didn’t pan out, Gina Gordon went after her second dream…becoming a writer. And she hasn’t looked back.
Gina, a self-proclaimed happily ever after junkie and cupcake connoisseuse, loves spinning contemporary tales of knee bending first kisses, unconditional love and super-hot sex. She broke out onto the romance scene with her #1 Amazon Bestselling erotic short story Her Five Favorite Words that’s been called a “deliciously naughty tale” by Joyfully Reviewed.
When not chained to her computer, you can find Gina sipping Starbucks, making cupcakes or feeding her addiction to celebrity gossip. She lives in Milton, Ontario with her husband and lovable dog.


  1. I loved this book! Veronica is such a caring soul, putting her life on hold to raise her half siblings. The chemistry between Veronica and Finn was OFF the CHARTS!

  2. I can't wait to read this book. I loved the other two books in the series. The Madewood brothers are just great.
