Catch Me (Kitchen Gods, Book 2)
By Beth Bolden
Narrated by Wyatt Baker
Length: 9 hrs and 33 mins
Chef Wyatt Blake is finally ready to move on from his thankless job. He gets no wiggle room, zero praise, plenty of abuse, and on a good day, he might only spend twelve hours in the Terroir kitchens. A friend of his recommends a private chef position, but despite the boost in pay, Wyatt doesn’t want to babysit some spoiled, rich LA family.
Imagine his shock when the family isn’t a Kardashian clone, but Ryan Flores, the only professional baseball player to ever come out of the closet.
Ryan is also at a career crossroads. His team’s management wants to see his more responsible side, which means no more late night hookups and no more adrenaline-charged stunts. When his agent suggests he find a fake boyfriend to give him an air of domesticity, he’s only reluctantly interested.
Until Ryan goes to a local bar and spies the cute private chef he’s supposed to be interviewing the next day. Maybe a quieter life wouldn’t be so bad, as long as Wyatt is part of it?
Wyatt believes Ryan could be more than just a crappy boss, but he isn’t sure about leaving the kitchen for the life of a professional boyfriend. Especially when he wants the reality so much more than the fantasy.
Catch Me is a 85,000 contemporary m/m romance, and while second in the Kitchen Gods series, can be read as a standalone.

A steamy, sexy, and sweet and a different approach to a fake boyfriend story.
I’m really enjoying the Kitchen Gods series and I love a fake boyfriend trope and this one really good even if it was a little different. Wyatt and Ryan have amazing chemistry right from the start and are very sexually compatible. They have a “one-night-stand” before entering into the fake boyfriend arrangement but the reason I find this difference is because their connection is there before, during (despite their best effects) and long after the fake boyfriend arrangement is happening. They seem to be more in a real relationship then not for most of the story even though they don’t think they are.
I loved their connection and all the secondary characters are fantastic. I liked getting to know Wyatt’s Nan and brother (there is definitely a story there!) and enjoyed getting to know new and old characters throughout the story.
I loved the depth to both Ryan and Wyatt and while massively frustrating I actually enjoyed the back and forth emotional rollercoaster with heaps of sexually charged stops along the way. So much angst and sexual tension I thought my kindle would explode. Ryan and Wyatt are definitely super hot together and I did love the HEA once they finally communicated with each other.
A fantastic, steamy story with great writing, narration, and truely loveable characters. Another winner in this series!!
