Chef Alain and former businessman Simon have been friends for over ten years.  They’ve kept their friendship alive, despite the distance between their homes, through Simon’s visits to Paris.  Now, however, Alain wants to visit Simon’s small village.  After all their years of friendship, Alain wonders if they might be able to have something more…

Vintage is a great, hot, slow-paced tale of friendship and love.  Alain and Simon are both nearing fifty, which was refreshing after reading about so many young and perfect heroes.  They’re also opposites, but they fit together perfectly.  Chef Alain is passionate about more than just food.  He loves Paris, and his restaurant.  He can be impulsive at times, but he’s loyal and caring toward his friend.  Simon loves his home in the country.  He’s reserved and cautious, and tends to think about things a lot.  When Alain makes a wager designed to get Simon to see how things could be between them, the story really heats up.  As always, Jamie Craig writes love scenes that are both passionate and emotional.  I don’t want to spoil the story by explaining Alain’s wager, but suffice it to say it makes for some delicious reading.  Vintage is a great read for a lazy summer day, or any day when you’re in the mood for a sweet and spicy escape.
