If you’re a fan of Chrissie Peria‘s The Kitchen When It Sizzles *waves hands enthusiastically*, you would be very familiar with this excerpt. This is the one with Adam Levine, coffee as cold as yesterday’s soup stock, a colorful weekend market, and the Talk. Nate is here too. Oh Nate.
Read on for more context, then click the video featuring Rachel Coates as Olivia, and Gio Gahol as Nate. Enjoy the feelings!
Olivia Nadal is an almost perfect girl with an almost perfect life. She has stunning good looks, an exciting job that pays well, men lining up to date her, and a homey little condo she calls her own. The only thing keeping her from perfection is her utter inability to cook.
Enter Nate Olivarez, a hotshot chef who’s filling in for Olivia’s cooking instructor. Sparks fly when they meet, but a fling with the visiting hottie is the last thing Olivia needs. But as things keep heating up in the kitchen, she can’t help but wonder. Can things work out between her and Nate? Or is the sizzle all set to fizzle?

So remember at FilReadercon when we had theater actors Rachel Coates and Gio Gahol read excerpts of our romance books? Remember we said we’re launching a podcast to follow through with that soon? Well the first episode is up! YAY! This first one is an excerpt from Fall Like Rain by Ana Tejano, wherein Gio reads Mark, and Rachel reads Rain. Read a bit more about the book below before you hit play:
Rain De Castro has been in love with her best friend, Mark Velasco, for almost the entire time she has known him, but she’s clearly in the friend zone because he’s happily in a relationship. Or so she thought, until the news of his break-up reaches her. Now that Mark’s single again, she decides that it’s time to get out of the zone. But when her cousin Lissa comes into the picture and sets her eyes on Mark, Rain feels troubled when he gets a little too friendly with her. Rain is determined to fight for what she feels this time, but is it worth the effort if it’s a losing battle from the start? Will she back off to give way for her best friend’s happiness, even if it means losing him to someone else again?
