Book Review: All Fired Up

Her sweetest mistake . . .

Cool as a Chicago winter, private events planner Cara DeLuca is a model of self-control . . . until she meets the one temptation she can't resist: Shane Doyle. The sexy, Irish pastry chef is too hot, too sure, too young, and after a crazy night in Vegas-her new husband. While at first Cara wants nothing more than a way out of her sham marriage to Shane, she soon finds that beneath his farm boy demeanor lies a man who can match her drive, both in and out of the bedroom. How can the wrong guy feel so deliciously right?

. . . tastes so, so good.

Shane has carefully structured his career and life around one goal: connecting with the family that doesn't know he exists. Marrying a woman with more issues than a magazine stand wasn't part of the plan, but melting Cara's icy exterior is so worth the detour. Now as the annulment date nears and long-buried secrets are revealed, Shane will have to fight for the one thing guaranteeing the perfect life he craves . . . the current Mrs. Shane Doyle.

While I would never survive on a steady diet of Chick Lit, a small taste never hurts.  And what a delightful taste.  I was expecting a spunky heroine and a hot hero with witty dialogue but I got so much more.  Ms. Meader delves into the touchy subjects of eating disorders and child abuse.  

I found ALL FIRED UP to be wonderful and enjoyable way to learn more about subjects that are usually relegated to whispers and dark rooms.  If more authors would bring knowledge to their readers in such an easily digestible fashion perhaps the sufferers would find it easier to ask for help or to even recognize that there is an issue at all.  

I do recommend ALL FIRED UP and I will definitely be on the lookout for more of Ms. Meader's books.  Both fun and educational is always a hit on my list.
