A Sip of You (The Epicurean #2) by Sorcha Grace

The undeniable chemistry between food photographer Catherine Kelley and billionaire gourmand William Lambourne has become an unquenchable thirst…

Catherine’s career in Chicago is taking off and the handsome stormy-eyed stranger who recently rocked her world has become—dare she say it?—her boyfriend. Dating a billionaire who’s a god in the bedroom and a virtuoso in the kitchen definitely has its perks. But it’s the unguarded, tender moments with William that stir Cat’s heart and reawaken her appetite for love. A weekend trip to William’s vineyard so he can face a painful loss puts their new relationship to the test. Complex and layered, William is at once passionate and sweet, but also prickly and guarded. He’s promised openness, but it becomes immediately clear that Cat’s version of honesty and his are as different as chardonnay and pinot noir. It’s hard to fault William for his secretive ways when Cat knows she’s holding back, too. As the attraction between them gets even hotter, Catherine and William must share all of their secrets before their relationship can truly begin. And little does Cat know how dangerous confronting their pasts will be. Book 2 in the The Epicurean series.

**Contains adult content. Suitable for readers 18 & up*

I read #1 over a year ago now and i adored it, it was the perfect mix of sex and when i realized i hadnt read two, i got straight on it. Straight away i was taken back into the world of Stormy Eyes with Sorchas fantastic description from the clothes the couple wear to the beautiful food they indulge in. We carry on from book #1 and now, well Catherine & Williams relationship has changed and taken on a new level. We meet them as they are tying to deal with that. When William gets some news and has to leave town, Catherine heads with him feeling overwhelmed by his wealth but dedicated to him. Throw in a few hard days and a vanishing William and i felt like i wanted to bang my head against the wall repeatedly. William is still as mysterious and sexy as ever, and still blowing hot and cold leaving both me, and Catherine in turmoil. I felt in limbo alot of the book, and was unsure how the realtionship would develop. Because frankly William is Frustrating.

Catherine is still as strong and independant and focused on her work as ever, which i love as i didnt want her to lose herself in the relationship with such a strong character as William. When the pair do head out of town, she bumps into a familiar face, one she didn't really want too see. Catherine then spends far too much time over analyzing where she should go from there and i just wanted to shake her by the shoulders and tell her to embrace the relationship.
This book was far better than #1 in my opinion, i found myself both swooning, frustrated and a little bit hungry. Sorchas writing once again was fantastic, and in desperation i may have tweeted her to find out when book #3 is out, because quite frankly the cliffhanger it was left on, did not leave me impressed!!
