Review: Catch Me (Kitchen Gods Book 2) Kindle Editionby Beth Bolden

Rating: ๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒˆ 5

I had been reading all the other stories in several series that mentioned this couple, chef Wyatt Blake and out MLB player Ryan Flores (Food Truck series and Kitchen God) but had never quite gotten around to their story.

Until now.

What a wonderful story it is. Iโ€™m so sorry Iโ€™ve missed out on all the references, not understanding what they meant until now. So many ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ.

Because now I get them, and the impact on this couple as their relationship continues.

Itโ€™s only a sports story in that Ryan plays MLB. It does discuss his continuing impact as the first out MLB player and his negotiating with the team owner. Nothing about his dynamics within the team. Shame

Unlike other stories with hockey and football where the sport itself is a featured player, baseball here is missing as a story element. I sort of wished that had been more of a stronger aspect of Ryanโ€™s character here but , as it wasnโ€™t really a passion of his, I get leaving it out.

Thereโ€™s a lot here to dive into, food , food /recipes of Puerto Rico ,inability to trust and communication, even to understand what it is to truly love and commit to another person. Thatโ€™s an enormous narrative load for any couple and book to carry.

Thereโ€™s so much to unpack here narratively speaking. Itโ€™s funny, real, harsh, heartbreaking, and ultimately so warm and loving.

Itโ€™s exactly why I read this authorโ€™s stories.

Honestly I should have gotten to Wyatt and Ryan sooner but better late than never.

Donโ€™t you make that mistake. Read about their love story now. I highly recommend it and this author.

By Scattered Thoughts

At over 50, I am ruled by my terriers, my gardens, and my projects. A knack for grubbing about in the woods, making mud pies, and tending to the injured worms, bugs, and occasional bird and turtle growing up eventually led me to working for the Parks. I was a park Naturalist for over 20 years, and observing Nature and her cycles still occupy my hours. From the arrival of Ruby-throated Hummingbirds in the Spring to the first call of the Snow Geese heading south in the Fall, I am entranced by the seasons. For more about me see my bio on my blog.
